About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, I lived in Egypt for nearly 20 years. In fact, the idea of Villa Tunis comes from the rural village south of Cairo where I have a villa. Pottery and other Egyptian handicrafts come from village artisans close to our villa.

These experiences bring an international flavor to Villa Tunis as well as an understanding of the excitement of traveling to a new location and exploring all that the setting has to offer.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

We stayed 5 nights in the 3 bedroom/2 bathroom apt. Everything was very clean upon arrival.

  • 5 of 5

The cupboards were filled with dishes, pots & pans, cooking utensils & both shower towels & pool towels. We shopped at the local Fresh Market & stocked our refrigerator. We used the gas grill to cook meals. The pool was beautiful & warm for swimming! Very nice place! Would definitely recommend this place!

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was in tip top shape and the apartment was everything it said it was and more, we had everything we needed. The property manager, Gamal, was great he made sure our stay was awesome took care of anything that needed to be done. He gave us hints and directions on places to go and do. This place is impeccably clean, nice quite location, and the pool and grill area were beautiful. All I can say is that when we return to Florida this will be our location. Thanks for everything Ernest and Gamal. Already looking forward to our next trip!!!
