  • Maintenance

    EPV / BUGGIES

    The EPV (buggies) come with a one year guarantee against any factory defaults. The VMA provides a facility where the buggies can be serviced or repaired if broken. This facility is run by the maintenance team and invoices for buggy services will be charged on levy statements. The VMA provides a free buggy cleaning service should an owner require this. Please ensure buggy tyres are kept inflated and battery water is checked regularly. Always keep buggies in a clean and sound state of repair and keep on charge at your unit when away.

    MOORING

    A monthly service charge of $70 per month (subject to change) is charged to cover cleaning and maintaining of the moorings by the VMA from the date that practical completion of the mooring is issued. This amount is charged to the owner's levy accounts on a monthly basis. In addition a once-off amount of $ 210 is charged to each owner as a service charge deposit on practical completion/transfer of ownership. The service fee includes maintenance and insurance for the boardwalk, pontoon, bollard and services supplied as well as any harbour dues charged.

    APPLIANCES

    All appliances, including all kitchen equipment like the oven, hob, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer as well as the barbeque do come with guarantees, which will cover any factory fault within reason. After the specified period any repair to any appliance falls under the homeowner’s responsibility. The VMA will of course help to sort out the problem at an additional cost to the owner. Please refer to your homeowner manual for more information and operational instructions.

    AIR CONDITIONING

    All homes come fully equipped with air conditioning units. The maintenance of these units is the responsibility of each homeowner; however the VMA will assist with all repairs of faulty units for an additional fee. The VMA also provides an air conditioning servicing facility. Air conditioners should be serviced every six months. It should however be noted that all air conditioning units do come with a 1-year guarantee. 
Air-conditioning units have to have the filters cleaned every six months and should be run for 2 hours per week to ensure good maintenance. The VMA are happy to assist with this at an additional fee. Please refer to your manual in your homeowner file for more information and operational instructions.

    POOL

    In order to keep private pools clean and presentable at all times in relation to the standards presented by the rest of Eden Island, all pool cleaning and maintenance will be done by an outsourced company contracted to the VMA and charged to individual levy accounts. Charges are based on the size of each individual pool.

    GARDENING

    The maintenance costs of all communal areas are included in the monthly VMA general levy. All private gardens that are maintained by the VMA landscaping team are charged at an additional cost.  This will be included on your monthly levy statements. Some homeowners would no doubt like to do some gardening themselves and endemic plants can be purchased from the nursery through the VMA reception. Please however keep the Landscaping Guidelines in mind when gardening, as these must be followed at all times.

  • Facilities

    Clubhouse

    The Eden Island Clubhouse is complete with Fitness Centre, petanque court, tennis court, lounge and swimming pool. There is also a children's swimming pool and play area.

  • Marina

    The Eden Island International Marina is a commercial marina situated on the western shore of Eden Island, between the island and the main island of Mahé. It caters for all yachts, leisure craft and super-yachts up to 100m in length.

    


Shore side facilities include a lounge in Marina House with a bar, television, snacks and showers for all visiting yachts.

    
Services include service bollards (Rolec Spinnaker type) on all pontoons, with power ranging from 16amp single phase to 250amp three-phase, water (outlets ½” to 1¼”) with anti-contamination valves and a mobile Fire Caddy with 15mm of 38mm lay flat fire-fighting hose and a 250 litre per minute delivery capability.

  • Tidal Levels and Basin Depths

    Herewith an explanation of the terms used relating to the above and what it means in practical terms.

    The tidal range around Eden Island is extremely SMALL in comparison to other parts of the world and as such does not result in any major navigational problems for skippers of vessels wishing to navigate around our waters. The variance in the height of tide is roughly 1 meter above or below the average Mean Sea Level.

    Please view the pdf document for more detail on tidal levels and basin depths.


  • Vehicles

    Parking

    In terms of the sales agreements with homeowners, access to a covered parking bay is provided to each owner. This parking is currently provided in the parking garage that has been built next to the VMA Workshop. These bays are not dedicated bays but the VMA has decided, at it's discretion, to allocate bays on a temporary basis to those owners or residents who have a car. This is to assist with the management of the parking garage space as many people do not have cars. The VMA reserves the right to change the allocation of bays at any stage. Please contact the VMA to arrange a parking disc, which will allow you access into the parking garage. As Eden Island is a motor vehicle-free zone, only buggies are permitted to drive on the pathways of Eden Island. 
Special parking bays for buggies are available at all public facilities on Eden Island. All homeowners also have an undercover buggy parking bay as part of their home.

    Car Rental

    Taxi Fares

    It has been reported many times that taxi drivers are charging exorbitant rates to visitors seeking transportation using private taxis.

    The Seychelles Taxi Operators Association (STOA) have confirmed that the standard rate to be charged from the Airport to Eden Island is Rs300. If you are charged anything above this, please ask for a receipt and you can log an official complaint at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Please attach a copy of the receipt with your query.

    The STOA is in the process of finalizing a schedule of fares which will be displayed at the airport to inform clients of the expected rates.

Resales

As it is currently laid out in the terms of agreement, a homeowner can look at selling his or her property, but not prior to transfer of the property into his/her name.  It should also be noted that during the period of development on Eden Island, the Eden Island Development Company has the right of first refusal on resales.

Eden Island's duly appointed sales agent, Eden Island Real Estate (Seychelles) Limited, will take a mandate to sell an owner's property should they so wish.  In this regard, the Village Management Association must also consent to a sale to ensure that all levies have been paid, competing sales agents aren’t displaying unattractive ‘For Sale’ signboards all around the island and that a similar contract is used in terms of the requirement of the Government of the Seychelles.
