Egypt on 10... by 10!!

  • 5 of 5

OMG, what an AMAZING experience... made all the better by our fantastic Cairo/Giza digs and FABULOUS hosts!! For 10 adults (2 sets of older parents and 6 adult "kids") we could NOT have had a better place to stay OR better hospitality. The apartment is BEAUTIFUL - just as the pics and video show - and with ALL of the amenities, including a washer/dryer (which was MUCH used!). But more than the apartment, our hosts were like family, literally. One stayed with us ALL day at the US Embassy (!!!!) and then went with us to the police station (!!!) and another helped us "navigate" the Egyptian Immigration Department (!!!!!!... !!!!!!!!!!!!!) after one daughter lost her passport!

We also had a former Egyptian antiquities professor as our personal guide to the pyramids, Sakara tombs and temple, the Cairo and Memphis museums, the Citadel, and more!

Wanna see Cairo/Giza on 10? You will not find better service or a better place to stay in Cairo/Giza!

Best Experience Ever..... Truly a Castle

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest and most beautiful place I stayed in better than the fanciest hotel you can find. The apartment was very well maintained, modern furnished with a great taste in decoration. It was a nice quiet place with a great view of the city right from the balcony. It is very roomy with a relaxing atmosphere.The price was very reasonable and all the amenities were available.It is walking distance to many attractions and central to everything. The owners as well as contacts were not only the nicest but always very concerned that all was okey and were readily available to meet all needs. I recommend this place very very highly and I will definitely rent here again in the near future!

The best apartment in Cairo!

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home. The apartment is safe, spacious, clean and comfortable, furnished in an attractive and modern style.Fully equipped kitchen, wide and open living-dining area. No clutter around the apartment. Air conditioned throughout. Fantastic wifi. Vern and Alaa are a perfect combination in business, and made us feel at home. They called from overseas to welcome us in the apartment ... Everything was done in a most professional manner. They checked on us all the time. What can I say about the location... the best! The view of the Great Pyramid is amazing! Very close to amenities. My family and I will certainly return, highly recommended.

Fantastic! Much much nicer apartment than the photos show

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked the apartment, Vern was a brilliant asset to making our trip to Cairo amazing. He texted all the major sights and gave great advice on the city. He hooked us up with a local tour guide - Ashraf who arranged full transportation during our stay and airport pick-up. Ashraf became like a family member and looked after us and our children as he would his own, including arranging ALL our sight-seeing and camel rides for the family where he personally held their reigns to ensure safety. He was way more family then a tour guide or even a friend! His dad (Musa) is a Professor of Egyptology and was our guide. We learnt a tremendous amount from him and almost all other guides and museum employees we came across hugged him as most of them were his students!

The apartment itself is much much bigger then it looks in the photos. It was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Cairo was pretty cold when we were there and the heating was very fast and efficient. The location is great. I was considering staying in a 5 star in New Cairo but am so happy we spent half the money and had twice the fun in this apartment. The kids had a lot of room to run and stretch. There is a grocery store about 5 minutes walk which has everything you will need for your stay. If you ask Vern to connect you with Ashraf, you will have pretty much everything you need. I will definitely come back to Cairo as it is such an amazing city and will only stay at this apartment when I come. Thanks Vern!

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

I went to Cairo for a long weekend and had a great experience at this place. It was easy to book and Vern seemed to be available 24 hours a day for questions and any help I needed. He took care of picking me up from the airport and got me settled with family and friends that work with him. The place was clean, very spacious and the view of the pyramids from the balcony was amazing. Having morning coffee and enjoying the view was incredible. It is an easy walk to get anything you would ever need. The guides Vern recommended were great and I was able to cover a lot of territory in just 3 days. Vern regularly checked in with me during the trip to ask if I needed anything and to make sure everything was okay. I was very much treated like family which was really nice. He also took care of getting to the airport when it was time to leave. I would definitely recommend staying at this place and the real bonus is that b/c Vern takes care of so much, all you have to do is enjoy Cairo and the experience.

Not As Represented In Photos or Video

  • 2 of 5

I have been using HomeAway for over two years and this was the first time I have ever had to write a negative review. Prior to arrival, Vern was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable and was extremely responsive to all emails and inquiries I had. That is the only reason I give 2 stars. On the day of arrival, the apt we saw online and what was actually presented was very different. First, it was NOT visually appealing. What we saw was a horrible run down area and a very dirty stone color bldg. The streets were unclean, & when the elevator accidentally took us to the 10th floor (twice) it looked like a wrecking ball had hit the top of the bldg. When we finally reached the apt the living room and kitchen were as it stated & figured it will do. Now the bedrooms and bathrooms were something different. The bathroom had a strong odor of urine (which we were told was due to a fumigation for bugs - tho the whole house didn't smell); the master bedroom had a ripped up pillow on it, dirty linen (the pillowcase had a dirt spot on it), the bed looked slept in and the room had recently been used that day. There was a used razor in the bathroom and fungus foot spray on the dresser. This was not what I was expecting after a 19 hrs of travel. None of the beds were not made up as noted in the photos or video I was sent. The two additional l guest rooms had unclean linen (one had some white stuff on it) and some sort of silvery-looking bug was crawling on one of the beds and was killed. A disagreement over the bug was initiated between a family member of mine who was going to sleep in the room and the person we met to receive the key with. The wifi router was not working and we were told it had to be replaced and would be done (hopefully) by the next morning. It is difficult to be out of country without wifi because it is what keeps us connected with our family. The floors were not swept well, but wearing socks or flip flops would have minimized the dust that can get on your feet. We sat and talked as a group as to what was the best course of action, but after the bug was not the bed and were told we can change the sheets; it was decided to check into a hotel for a night. I had spoken with Vern's brother on the phone and he said he would make everything right. We ended up paying for a hotel due to other circumstances. I have pictures supporting this review.

Owner's Response: Hello Ms Pamela I have been debating to even respond to your comment because I feel it does not need a response .But to be fair to my other guest and future guest I must I have always made sure everything is made very clear up front and done my best to go overboard in representing my apartment & taking care of my guest .But all I can say is you have went above and beyond my ability to please a guest and take care of there needs .All i can say is what you have posted is very far from what is actually what was stated I hope you enjoyed your trip to Cairo Thanks for your Review
