The Fairy Tern is one of the Seychelles' classic guest house. Built in a calm, serene environment, right on the beach on Cerf Island, you won't be disturbed by anything but the sounds of the sea and the splashing of waves on the beach. From the property you can enjoy a beautiful view of the offshore lagoon and its coral reef, which shelters a huge variety of fish, making it an excellent place for snorkelling fans.
The small estate consists of two spacious apartments, each of which offers a high degree of privacy thanks to the construction of the hotel. Both apartments offer identical facilities besides a different floor plan and a few small decorative details, and both come with a private veranda that stretches the whole width of the house, offering a beautiful view of the ocean. As well as that, relaxing lounge furniture contributes to the comfortable atmosphere of the hotel.
The facilities of the villa are all very modern and of a high standard, and each apartment offers a double bedroom, large living area, annexed open-plan kitchen, bathroom with WC, bidet, and shower. The kitchen is equipped with all you need for a self-catering holiday, and there is air-conditioning in each room, as well as ceiling fans and cabel TV.
As is typical for a guesthouse, guests can choose between self-catering, breakfast, or half board, depending on their preference. Those who choose half board will be treated to a breakfast buffet and an à la carte dinner at the nearby restaurant of the Habitation hotel, run by the same family as the owner of the Fairy Tern; simply walk along the beach to reach the restaurant.
The value for money offered by this location is extraordinary, and the friendly, unobtrusive service provided by the owners is wonderful. In addition, depending on the availability of fruit in the garden, he also likes to supply guests with fresh fruit and coconuts, for yet another delicious treat!

Fairy Tern is located on the small island of Cerf Island, about 7 minutes by boat from Eden Island (Mahe). When we arrived at the pier, Wendy was already waiting for us and gave us a very nice welcome. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The apartment was very clean and modernly furnished. After a few meters through the garden you come to the beach. We can only recommend this accommodation. Wendy also accompanied us to the pier when we said goodbye. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
The Fairy Tern is a great place to stay on Cerf Island. We had the upper apartment. It's very big and cosy. The kitchen is an extra room. I find that very practical, because you can close the door at night and you don't hear the usual hum of the fridge. Wendy and Kevin are great hosts. Always trying to make sure you are happy. We felt very comfortable there as a guest. The beach section is the best on Cerf. You can always swim in front of the Fairy Tern, regardless of whether the tide is high or low. There are sun loungers and seating areas on the beach. Two huge trees naturally provide shade. Perfect for a bathing and relaxing holiday. Translation (DE): GoogleTranslate
