Rather than being committed to the promotion of only one project – where obvious bias is inevitable, we have a solid knowledge of all three islands and access to virtually all of the current new builds and existing projects.

Accordingly, we are in a unique position to offer our clients sage advice not only about the projects for sale on each island but also the unique lifestyle each offers – the pros’ and cons of each as well!.

Sales to South Africans


In 2005 when Gail Gavrill (my wife) left South Africa to set up the sales function of Eden Island (Seychelles), this “Jewel in the Indian Ocean” was relatively unknown to international property investors while Mauritius continued to be the obvious choice.

With the launch of Eden Island and its massive global marketing campaign, the Seychelles as a holiday and investment destination “sprang into life” with well over 200 apartments, Maisons and villas having been sold in a matter of three years – unheard of investment money poured into the country from all over the world – we estimate that in excess of 40% of these sales were made to South Africans.



Life in the Seychelles is like being on a permanent holiday – provided that lazing under palm trees, swimming in tropical temperature crystal clear water and basking in weather that rarely drops below 25 degrees is your type of thing! Don’t expect first world shopping centres, late night entertainment and Gucci shops on each street corner. Granitic mountains, snow white sand, hotels suitable for royalty and over 115 islands to choose from make this truly Paradise on earth. Some islands are uninhabited, some Robinson Crusoe types and some so exclusive (and expensive) you cannot even moor your mega yacht and land your dingy on their shores! Friendly, educated and highly welcoming locals ensure any time spent in the Seychelles will remain a memory forever!


No question, of all the habitable Indian Ocean islands Mauritius offers the most convenient living style particularly for South Africans who feel totally at home with most of the major chain stores present, a first world banking infrastructure, impressive beaches, resorts and investment properties in abundance. Our exposure to Mauritius enables us to cherry pick the most suitable property investments for our clients where again not being beholden to any specific project allows us to be completely unbiased – solid investment being key to our service offering. Benefits include an extremely low crime rate, no capital gains tax, no withholding tax, residency options, one of the fastest growing African economies and opening an offshore company for non- residents is a breeze.

Mauritius Brochures





A trip to the Maldives is similar to a visit to a truly “other- worldly” location where sea planes are the common means of transport carrying visitors to their reclusive palatial residences and resorts of choice.

Peppered all over the myriads of atolls – none higher than 2.4 meters or so above sea level, lie water bungalows perched above the crystal blue sea. Sadly properties here are not priced for “entry-level” investors it must be said.

Male’ the capital is essentially the point of entry with most visitors missing out on the wonderful historic places of interest to visit, choosing rather to get to their destinations as soon as possible – destinations such as the ultra- luxurious residences or magnificent villas at Soneva Fushi or Soneva Jani springing immediately to mind. The Maldives is expensive by European standards and is only now starting to promote itself as a property investment destination for the future. We seriously advise our clients not to overlook opportunities we have on offer in this magnificent country (if finances permit) as we have some prize investments on offer.
