In the Seychelles, an exotic island in the Indian Ocean, there is a property made for you. This house sits on more than 27,000 sqm (6.6 acres) land, directly on the shore of the Indian Ocean, accessible on a private road, through a tropical forest or by a boat.
The Moorish style main house sits on three levels, spreading over 700 sqm (approx 7,500 sqft). It comes fully furnished, let's see what is inside!
Upon entering, you will arrive at the middle level of the three-storey unique home. Two bedrooms and the service areas like the laundry room and storage rooms are here.
A grandiose staircase leads you to the lower level dedicated to the living areas and a wrap-around veranda with incredible ocean views. The master bedroom with a spacious en-suite and walk-in-closet is accessible from the sitting room through a passage filled with tropical plants.
The upper level is accommodating two large bedrooms and an office, all having an en-suite, and direct access to terraces and the back garden.
In case you are wondering, not only one, but two pools belong to the house. One of them is a Roman pool, right next to the sitting area at the lower level. The main pool sits on the garden's edge surrounded by unique granite rocks typical in Seychelles. There is a private pathway to a secluded beach; access from outsiders is only allowed by sea, and it's not easy to reach.
Four other buildings sit on the property: a warehouse, a gym, accommodation for staff, and a beach house's rudiments.
Anse Boileau is a long winding bay in the southwest of Mahé, near Anse à la Mouche and Anse Louis. The locality of the same name is located right next to the beach. It has some facilities such as stores and supermarkets, a school and restaurants including the very famous "Chez Plume", which has the reputation of being one of the best on the island. Small fishing boats are often seen in the bay, which gives an excellent insight into the local fishermen's lives. There are bus stops and some parking spaces next to the parallel road. A reef protects Anse Boileau, so it is safe. It is possible to swim and snorkel only at high tide, as the bay is very shallow, and it is not uncommon for it to be completely dry.
The bay is also very popular with Seychellois, who enjoy windsurfing when the conditions are right. Thanks to its location on the west coast, there is also a beautiful view of the sunsets from this beach, which is particularly interesting for photographers. Overall, Anse Boileau is not a classic swimming beach, as is the case with many beaches in Seychelles. For hiking enthusiasts, the "Montagne Posée Road" in the centre of the cove leads to the starting point of a hike on the Montagne Brulée. This hike leads to the top, about 500 m high, from where you can enjoy a fabulous view of the west coast of Mahé.
