Guestbook comments from the owner

Nous avons séjourné dans l appartement de Mr Jean pendant une semaine. Nous avons eu un très bon accueil par John et Margaret . L appartement est très propre et très confortable .

Il est très bien situé , proche des magasins et des restaurants surtout le restaurant italien qui se trouve à 50 mètres . Nous avons vécu dans cet appartement comme si nous étions à la maison. Il ne manque rien et nous avons hâte d y retourner. Merci pour tout !!

The Red Sea Riviera/Sinai region

Hurghada is split into a number of areas, the 'Intercontinental' tourist area where the Oasis complex is located with its 5KM of promenade, shops, hotels, bars and restaurants and beaches, the 'Sekalla' which is the downtown area with shops, jewellers, snack bars where the new marina is located and the 'old Town Dahaar' which is where you can visit the Bazaars and see the locals going about their everyday lives. Al Kawthr, Magwish, Sahl Hasheesh, Makadi Bay are other areas in and around Hurghada well worth visiting. Easting out is inexpensive. Taxis and local buses are on every doorstep and they are as cheap as chips. There is an abundance of Restaurants and shops in the immediate vicinity of the apartment and Chain restaurants such as Hard Rock Cafe are within walking distance and sit well alongside the local Egyptian offerings and other European cuisine. The usual fast food outlets like McDonald, Pizza Hut, Costa Coffee and Kentucky Fried Chicken are available. You will be spoilt for choice. Sekala and the old part of Hurghad is a short 5 minute bus or taxi journey where many more restaurants, shops and nightclubs such as Ministry of Soundd, Calypso, Hed Khandi, Beach Bars and the Marina can be found where the music goes on until the early hours. El Ghouna is a gated town a 30 minute taxi ride away and is where a PGA 18 hole golf course can be found. Feel free to take the clubs from the apartment if you fancy a round of golf on this championship course.

Climate - Throughout the red sea, humidity is almost non existent, the constant warm breezes make the warm to hot temperatures more than bearable and pleasant during any period of the year. There are only two seasons, a warm winter November-April (low to high 20s daytime, cooler in the evening) and hot summer May-October (low to high 30s)

The Hurghada / Intercontinental District area

Activities include World class scuba diving, snorkeling, kite boarding, wind surfing, ten pin bowling, snooker, desert saaris, bungi jumping and the water parks, to name but a few are available in Hurghada. Whilst in Hurghada you could see a dolphin show or swim with the dolphins, go on a boart trip to Gifton Island, go in a submarine or on a glass bottom boat trip to see the amazing fish by the Red sea coral, camel trekking, hot air ballooning or on a quad bike/jeep safari. You can also visit Luxor, the Valley of the Kings, Temples of Luxor and Karnac, the Colssus of Memnon and take a trip down the Nile or visit Cairo.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay at this apartment. I loved having a fully-equipped kitchen to make meals and I appreciated the small little touches like having extra toiletries in the bathroom and a few basics in the refrigerator. It was very comfortable and a relaxing stay. And you can't beat having a pool right outside your door!

We feel like home

  • 5 of 5

From airport arrival until the end of holiday was everything perfect. Just the wifi inside the flat was little weak. We enjoyed our 12 days in every second in this little quiet paradise. We found everything we needed inside the flat. And also little minute far we found a big Supermarket.

We say thank you to Margaret and John for their friendly help in Egypt and we thank Jean for everything she did before travel.

I hope we will see us soon again :-)

home from home, thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

  • 5 of 5

when we first arrived the weather was lovely and warm, we were greeted by said and it just made the whole transition much easier.The apartment was so spacious and clean and definitely like home from home with all the little touches. The welcome pack was thoughtful and helped for when you first arrived you could make a tea before going shopping. we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to anyone. It is out the way of the main town but that is what we wanted.

Very nice holiday in a quiet relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice holiday in a quiet relaxing location in a beautiful and well-maintained flat. Very friendly contact with Jean, Margaret, John and Said from the beginning. Just opposite the apartment is a great Italian restaurant, and the associated system which can also be shared. A small supermarket is also located just outside the flat. The sea is just like 5-10 minutes walk to reach. Other locales are just a short walk away with the taxi for very little money. Clear further recommendation.

Thx for all
