Sunrise is our most elevated Seychelles family villa. From its high vantage point the villa has spectacular views over Cerf Islands’ beaches. The villa has two air-conditioned en-suite bedrooms, an open-plan kitchen and an entertainment room, which makes it perfect for a Seychelles family holiday.
Sunrise is particularly unique due to its elevated veranda with a dining table, reclining furniture, and couches – perfect for lovely family barbeque with a view. The veranda has a truly magnificent 180-degree panoramic view to gaze at sunrises and moonrises over the ocean. During the day, you may even spot dolphins and schools of fish. There is also a private lawn with sun loungers that overlook the ocean.
When you stay in Sunrise, you will find Cerf Island beaches easily accessible at low tide. You can also enjoy our kayaks which are provided for free to our guests. Local restaurants are located on Cerf Island and if you venture to Mahe, (a short boat ride away) we can direct you to a range of shops and restaurants. Please find a list of our standard services here or use the Contact Us form at the top of the page if you've any questions. We look forward to having you to stay!

South Point Villas is a wonderful, beautiful, quiet place to stay and relax. We had been at other places at Seychelles, but even if very beautiful as well, here is our favourite!

The sea is perfect for snorkeling, many very beautiful fishes.
Thank you for everything, we hope to come back again soon!

This is a little place on earth still "Covid 19" free - and everyone takes care that this will stay so.
Big thanks and take care,

We are very sad to leave this most beautiful place! (Leaving a week early due to Coronavirus). Thank you Christine & Michel for making our stay here perfect. We will return.
Paul Rose on March 2020
We have just spent three days in paradise. Cachee' Moyenne, Round and Long Island are four islands around Cerf island which we discovered at the slow pace of our kayaks. The water surrounding the islands are very clear where you can enjoy the view of the bottom of the sea. When the tide goes out you are left with some deserted white beaches and perfect opportunity to see the fishes as if they were in an aquarium in the middle of the sea.
On the veranda of the villa we contemplate, dream, we listen to the sound of nature. We enjoyed Christine's first meal. This place is beautiful as it is, would be nothing without its hosts Michel and Christine; easy to talk to, always available, efficient, and discrete. A very big thank you to you both.
We appreciated the comfort and the exceptional placement of the Villa, but equally appreciated the professionalism and kindness of Christine and Michel which we hope will still be here when we come back.

What an amazing way to end our honeymoon!
South Point Villa is the most peaceful and relaxing place we have ever been. We have loved every second of disconnecting from the 'real world' and just relaxing. Beautiful sunrises and kayaking to untouched islands have been the highlights.
Michel and Christine have been amazing and so helpful - at the same time as being respectful of our peace and privacy. Would 100% recommend this beautiful place and the wonderful hosts.
Kristen Nisbet on January 2020
We write this already anticipating many more reviews of this magnificent location, peoples and environment. Our stay here has been nothing short of majestic and welcoming, thanks to our wonderful hosts.
We will defnitely be back and look forward to more memorable moments here.
A real contender for top two and defnitely not number two!
Clare Mwila Mbizule on January 2020
The nature, beauty, privacy, and serenity found at South Point Villas cannot be beaten. It was such a privilege to be able to escape the Minnesota winters in the Seychelles and on Cerf Island. Thank you so much to both MIchel & Christine for making this a trip of a lifetime. We hope to be back at some point in the future.

This destination here on the Cerf Island was the first stop on our 14 days holiday, the purpose of our holiday is my MOm's 60th birthday. The stay here with my Dad, Mom and boyfriend was the perfect start, the most relaxing days of a wonderful journey. Arriving here after a short boat trip took our breath, We were welcomed warmly, after this we saw our lovely Villa on top with a breathtaking view, the terrace was our favourite spot, we had dinner and breakfast there every day. We stayed here f or 4 days and 4 nights and enjoyed it to the fullest. The kayak tours around the island and to the beautiful sandbank where amazing, we saw alot of fish.

Dear Michel, Christine and MIchael,
Unfortunately we couldnt even imagine how wonderful it would be in your house "Sunrise" otherwise we would have booked defnitely for more than 3 days.
Although our trip to the Seychelles isnt finished tomorrow, it feels like the end of the vacation to leave this extremely beautiful place on earth. Thank you very much for your warm welcome and everthing you did for us, including including the exquisite welcome meal.
I hope we see us again.

What a lovely and genuine place - with great view and very friendly staff, thank you Michel & Christine.

This has been the first stop of our vacation - unfortunately we have to leave now. We really enjoyed our stay, it is a really beautiful and peaceful place. Breathtaking scenary, great place for diving, swimming and relaxing.
Last but not least we want to thank Michel and Christine for making everything special and for being so welcoming/hospitable and friendly.
Enjoy feeling like the last human on earth.
Mahnaz Kraeling on August 2019
We needed to restore ourselves after a heavy period and in no time we are more restored than ever.
It's true where some says that the Seychelles have the power to bring you back, when there was only the human being and nature, and peace. But we believe that this is even more true than South Point Villas. What magic has this place and you MIchel and Christine who make it are priceless. Thanks for all.

Michel, Christine and the rest of the staff thanks for the pleasant stay.
Leander Poelgeest on November 2018
My husband and I spent the last four nights of a three and a half weeks honeymoon between Zanzibar and Seychelles and this was easily one of our favourite experiences. We stayed in the Sunrise Villa which was the most private and had the most beautiful sunrises to wake up to. We were looking for a place to relax peacefully, away from the crowds during the end of our trip and this was exactly what we were looking for and more! We hope to come back one day with our future family to share the beauty of this island. Thank you so much Michel & Christine.

We've had a lovely time here in beautiful location! The views from "Sunrise" are indescribable and we had difficulty moving from our "sanctuary" to see the other parts of the island and Mahe. Michel, thank you so much for making our stay perfect and being available for everything and anything - nothing was too much trouble. Christine, the best suppers were delicious, thank you and also the coconut sweet dessert :). Good luck at school Ashley, we hope you do well. Lastly thank you to all for your patience with Tommy, especially helping in the kitchen with Christine and Ashley. We do hope to come again!

We had a very nice stay here at South Point Villas. What a nice view out of "Sunrise"! The weather forecast was often indicating rain at Seychelles...indeed cloudy at main island but Cerf was sunny, really!! We enjoyed much the accommodation and the very friendly staff (Michel, MIke, Christine,...) the right people to fell you "at home".
Thanks for the hospitality!

We, Viola, Emily, Lydia and Thomas spent six days here in this amazing place. From the very first moment we enjoyed the hospitality from Michel and his team. The snorkeling around this area was great, we even saw a two meter manta-ray next to the jetty.
Thank you for the beautiful time!!
Thomas Gerstorfer on April 2018
Arrived after a tiring flight and week in perfect weather in the perfect place. As soon as we stepped on the jetty we were in another world. Much better than we had imagined. Villa Sunrise deserves its name. From dawn to dusk just wonderful, relaxed times. "Cast away" withou the tough side. We also didnt have to talk to "Wilson" but to a pretty orange bird which apparently makes a breakfast collecting round amongst all the villas. The scenery and wildlife above and under water are just spectacular. We had the best BBQ'ed fish since many years. Fish bought by Christine with Michel's special marinade. Star rated taste overlooking the sea. Many thanks to the very nice and helpful staff, Michel, Christine and Mike.

This was our second stay on Cerf Island. Exactly at the first time...it was a dream. This place is the paradise.
Christine and Michel are the best host ever!
We will defnitely come back.
Best wishes from Lydia/Wolfgang
Lydia Lohde on November 2017
After visiting Bird Island in the Seychelles we thought it would be difficult to find a place as beautiful and as relaxing. Cerf Island exceeded our expectations, especially Sunrise Villa, its stunning views, fabulous snorkelling and secluded privacy.
We defnitely recommend Sunrise Villa to anybody and hopefully we'll make it back here again one day.

"The South Coast wind tells stories
If only you take time to listen
The sun warms your heart
If only you open your mind
The sea will show you wonderful things
If only you go into the water
So, just be for a while
and let life live you"
Thank you for five very special days in our lives. We are most humble in front of all the beauty. South Point Villas crew, be proud of yourselves. You are doing an excellent job, taking care of not only us, but the whole place.
A truly rare pearl. See you soon again.

It is a rare treasure when your travels provide you with a breathtaking destination, blissful privacy, incomparable guest service catering to our every whim, flawless communication and fabulous culinary creations pleasing each our discriminating palates with each supurbly crafted dish we received while in the comfort of the most comfortable and well appointed luxurious accomodations we have encountered throughout our Seychelles travel.
Michel is the consumate host, exuding hospitality from every pore. Always smiling, gracious, informative and helpful. He was both intuitive and accomodating as to our needs while striving to provide an extraordinary level of service. Carrying luggage, extra trips to and from Mahe he was always there for us. This finest, freshestt and tastiest meals we had anywhere in the Seychelles were prepared by Christine. You are here, you are on vacation, do not even think about depriving yourself of her local expertly prepared cuisine. Our group includes world travelers and a restaurant owner and we each raved about Christine's offerings which we eagerly looked forward to each evening. In South Point Villas we have found the oasis of paradise we were hoping for. The accomodations, stunning view, hospitality and gourmet delights greatly enhanced our Seychelles experience and provided each of us with many happy memories that are destined to last a lifetime!

Our family has visited Seychelles for the first time. We've been to the Seychelles for 14 days we've been on the islands - Praslin, Silhouette, Cerf. We really liked Seychelles, but most of all we liked Sunrise Villa on the island Cerf. It was unforgettable holidays! Very beautiful and wonderful location of Sunrise Villa. Everything is provided for a high level of rest. We enjoyed beautiful nature, birds singing and wonderul sunrises and sunsets. We can find losts of nice beaches where we can swim and relax. We enjoyed different food that Michel bought for us. Thank you for pleasant relationship for all guests.

The place is like paradise on earth.
The blue colors (water) and green (nature) are the perfect mix for relaxing.
We enjoyed our stay, the cooked food, snorkeling, day trips, kayak, the veranda, the view and the sunrise in Sunrise :)
Thank you Michel, Christine and Christina for making our stay perfect!
We will defnitely miss South Point Villas!
Maybe we will meet again in the future.

Dear Michel, Dear Christine, Dear Christina,
We've had a wonderful time here on Cerf Island overlooking the ocean and the Cacheé from Sunrise Villa. We've found what we've been looking for : peace, tranquility, white sandy beaches, turquoise water and a relaxed atmosphere. Additionally we've found fantastic and warm-hearted hosts that made this place even more special! Thank you very much!!!

Dear Christine and Michel,
We would like to express our gratitude for your hospitality and support throughout our deam holiday! We had an amazing family trust and joyfull vacation at Cerf Island. Our Sunrise Villas was marvelous - the amazing views of the endless ocean, the "like at home" feeling, and the sound of the waves made our vacation never to be forgotten. Thanks to your efforts, positive attitude and Christine's exceptional delicious dishes we experienced the true Seychelles spirit and the fullfillment of our dreams. We've left with countless happy memories and defnitely come back again some day. Thank you very much again, it was a great plesure and delightfull experience!
Dimitrova on August 2014
This is simply paradise! The only thing that makes it even better is the warmest hospitality from Christine, Chrstina and above all Michel. From being received so warmly from the airport to being taken on the boat to Cerf to the gorgeous view from the villa to the divine water to being taken for dinner by Michel, it was a great experience throughout. Even though we had only a few days this place completed our Seychelles experience for us. You can never have this sort of thing on the mainland. Thank you Southpoint Villas!
Zaidi, Pakistan on June 2014
Sadly, we wont be able to remember all the different kinds of fish we saw on our snorkeling adventures here on Cerf, but we'll certainly never forget our spacious accommodation with the breathtaking view and the hospitality, whiuch made it possible for us to relax like nowhere else.
Thanks to Michel, for being so kind and helpful all the time as well to Christine - the creole cuisine you created for us was spectacular! We really wish we could've stayed longer but probably we'll be able to visit again sometime.
Thank you again for these unique holidays.
Kruger, Germany on April 2014
Dear Christine, Christina and Michel.
On our trip around the Seychelles we found at the last stop the perfect spot. South Point Villas! a peace and relaxing place...in this crazy world...we stayed at "Sunrise Villa"...nice view...great atmosphere...and a comfortable private place...and we were supported by a wonderful team! Thank you!
Michel managed everything perfectly and smooth so he made us feeling home.
Christine's "creole cuisine" was a dream!
Christina's "green thumb" created every plant and flower in the garden. The team made our stay special!!
We discovered the amazing nature around the South Point Villas and several trips with the kayak to round...long and Moyenne Island and on snorkelling tours we saw turtles, stingrays, colourful fishes...sharks and one island cat! We couldn't find the hidden treasure on ill cache but we found more than that...a little baby cat! We rescued her and found her a new mom - Christine! We are very thankful for her heart warming help. This little cat will always be part of us - in this way we always will stay on the Seychelles.
There is only one thing to say - We'll come back!!
All the best - Hain, Germany
Hain, Germany on April 2014
We had an awesome timie here in the Sunrise Villa - much more relaxing than on Praslin and La Digue. Michel and Christine have been wonderful hosts, it felt like home away from home!
We loved watching the eagle rays, baby sharks and the octopus in front of the deck - the wild life around the property is amazing!
We defnitely want to return some day, the only thing we missed is a private swimming pool, hope it will be built until then..
Thanks again for this incredible week!

Dear Michel and Christine,
It has not only been a great pleasure to stay in Sunrise Villa - your exceptional service and outstanding hospitality made the sun rise in our hearts! It was also a very special experience to enjoy the amazing creole dinner that you cooked for us to perfection. The pictures of the red snapper - before and after grilling - will always be a special memory.
Thank you very much for everything.

Exquisite, serene, beautiful, tranquil - there are not enough words to express Seychelles and South Point Villas. A true paradise. A huge thanks to Michel for going the extra mile to make our stay even more comfortable and enjoyable. A special mention to Christine for the amazing food - it was absolutely delicious! We leave with some wonderful memories and although we will be sad to go so soon - we will almost certainly be back. Again, a massive thank you to all :)

First class luxury. All of us agreed this was the best holiday we ever had. Our two-bedroom Villa with living area was more spacious than we needed but we loved we loved the separate bedrooms and large kitchen. What made this Villa my favorite is that we all could be together and cook and have wine and look at the view The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We arranged sightseeing tours through the management and enjoyed the leisurely pace and professional insight and information. We would definitely come back and highly

South Point Villas Cerf Island will remain in our memories as one of the most heavenly places of all. Thank you to Michel Estico who showed us what a true Island Holiday is about, from the stunning accommodation with the most beautiful views, and so beautifully maintained to the shopping in Mahe and experiencing local cuisine and fruit. Michel's local knowledge and experiences allowed us to do trips etc we may not have done as "tourists". This is a holiday in every sense of the word and we will return - time and time again!
