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.

Villa Tunis is a Florida limited liability company licensed to provide vacation and extended stay rentals.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Ernest A. Slingsby chose Fort Lauderdale

Galleria Mall is 1.5 miles east of Villa Tunis. There you can find a wide array of shops and restaurants.

The Beaches

Ft. Lauderdale pristine beaches are about 2 miles from Villa Tunis. After passing the Galleria Mall, continue east on E Sunrise Blvd. until you reach A1A. The beaches are on the left and right. Either you can park in the metered spaces on the back streets, along A1A in some places, or there are also pay parking lots.

While at the beaches, do not forget to visit the Bonnet House and gardens located on 900 Birch Road just off A1A. Check on the internet for hours and days of operation as they change from time-to-time.

The Water Taxis

Several water taxis ply the various canals that make Ft. Lauderdale the Venice of South Florida. The closest station is located east of Galleria Mall at 2670 E Sunrise Blvd. Walk through the lobby the hotel and the water taxi station No. 9 is located on the canal (the hotel management will help you find the taxi station). Check the Water Taxi web page for schedules, station locations and tariffs.

Wilton Manors and its bars and shops are a short drive. Just take NE 15th Avenue north until you reach Flying L Drive and you will be in the center of Wilton Manors. Bars, shops and restaurants are located on both sides of the drive.

The Secret Gem of Ft. Lauderdale

  • 5 of 5

if you are looking for a 5 star experience in a vacation home than look no further than Villa Tunis. We had the modern 2 bedroom apartment for two weeks and nothing could be better in Ft. Lauderdale!

Gamal the General Manager and the Owner Ernest left nothing to chance in making us feel welcome and to make sure that all of out wishes where fulfilled. The apartment was very clean, spacious and well stocked with everything that you might need in a vacation home.

The heated pool was an Oasis surrounded by well groomed landscaping. The modern laundry facility was a plus for us.

The location could not be better as we where a short distance from Holiday Park, Las Olas , Fresh Food markets and Shopping.

5 star restaurants as well as the usual franchises are easily reached by car or other transportation.

I will highly recommend Villa Tunis to anyone seeking an exceptional vacation rental experience

We will remember both Gamal and Ernest for their kindness and friendship and plan to return in the future.

Outstanding Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Tunis for 8 days and enjoyed every minute. Gamal was very attentive to our needs e.g. taking us to the local store when we arrived, bringing us an ice box for the beach, provided a complimentary bottle of wine. He is most accommodating and we enjoyed our regular chats! The Villa is very clean, home from home and perfectly located for both the beach and Las Olas where you can find great restaurants. The pool area is an oasis and excellent space for relaxing and soaking up the Florida sunshine. We would definitely return and recommend this rental to family and friends.

Wonderful week at Villa Tunis

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our dear friends from Canada were seeking a new experience when we decided to make south Florida our destination for a winter get away. We were a little leary of finding a home to rent together on the internet; would it really be as nice as the pictures looked? Was it really that clean? How would we be treated? Could these people be trusted? We were so pleased. The owner and his staff treated us so wonderfully. From the text at the airport to inform us our room was ready, to the warm greeting as we got out of our cab, not to mention the tour of the home to let us know and feel so welcomed. Don't ever remember any other place where we stayed offering to drive us to the store for anything we needed or having a welcome dinner to meet and greet with others. Did I mention the complimentary bottle of wine we shared over a nice dinner? Did I mention the little extra touches of the beach towels, suntan lotion, or the clean pool we enjoyed everyday? Ernest the owner came and met everyone the night of the dinner party and Gamal was the wonderful individual that greeted us everyday and saw to any needs we had. The last act of kindness that was offered to my husband and I was the offering of a ride to the airport if we needed one. I know after the experiences we have had in traveling that this kindness could never be matched. Thank you Ernest and Gamal for such an awesome week. We would encourage anyone to stay at your home; it was awesome. The DeMarco and Gauthier Families

What a deal!

  • 5 of 5

My extended family recently stayed at Villa Tunis (including a 5 yr old & 2 yr old) and they had a wonderful time. The apartment was beautiful, recently renovated, and well stocked. We simply LOVED the backyard - you can't beat it! We grilled most of our dinners and couldn't keep the kids out of the heated pool. Very peaceful & quiet. Conveniently located next to a huge park/playground, some restaurants, coffee shop, fresh market, etc. Gamal was a pleasure to work with! Great value - better than staying in a hotel any day!
