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

A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay last year that we booked it again for this year, and the experience was as delightful as we remembered. The location is in at the Victoria Park section of Fort Lauderdale, within easy walking distance of Las Olas, with its fine restaurants and shops.The villa is spacious, immaculately clean, with lovely furnishings. However, what sets this facility apart from most others is the presence of the genial and helpful manager, Gamal. He's on site every day to make sure everything meets his high standards. When I mentioned that an outside light no longer worked, he was there within minutes replacing the bulb. The entire facility is welcoming and beautifully maintained. Would I recommend it? Without hesitation.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

After taking a ten day cruise it was pleasant to spend another 8 days in Florida. The home was just lovely, very clean and comfortable. Gamal was very nice he was very welcoming. After eating for ten days on a cruise we were looking forward to just eating at home. We noticed that there were a few items missing. After a few days we made a few request and Gamal emidiately went to buy them. We just wanted a few extra bowls and a ladle which he had no idea what I was talking about. But after a brief explanation he found one and brought it to us. Thank you for making our stay so pleasant. Hopefully we will return next year and stay again.

Good area and place

  • 5 of 5

This place was in a great location for the downtown area, beach area, and, of course, all assorted restaurants and stores. The house and grounds were very well maintained. The table was set when we arrived and was most welcoming as well as a bottle of wine on the table. We would recommend this place to our friends.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned a last minute vacation with our 2 children ages 13 and 11. And let me say that it was the best last minute decision that we made! I cannot begin to tell you how pleased we were with our stay.

We wanted to thank for making our stay so comfortable! Villa Tunis was IMMACULATE! I felt like I was home, it was so comfortable. It was beautifully decorated. The landscaping was beautiful, it was so quiet and peaceful having our morning coffee out on the patio. And sitting out there after coming home from the beach. I could go on and on. The grounds were perfectly manicured. It was so convenient having a washer and dryer on the premises.

And you, Gamal, you were the perfect host! So sweet an kind! You gave us so many tips on where to go and what to do. You were so thoughful to give Greg a birthday gift, and my daughter a gift upon our arrival. (my favorite was the bottle of wine waiting for us once we arrived :) You were always checking to make sure our stay was going perfect. I cannot say enough wonderful things about you!

I could go on and on about how happy we were, this was probably the best, most realainWe are already looking forward to coming back next year! Until next year, take care!

Viaggio in Florida

  • 5 of 5

Viila tunis è una bellissima casa, molto spaziosa, pulita e curata nei particolari. C'è un ampio giardino con belle piante e piscina. Posizionata in un quartiere tranquillo, a pochi minuti dai vari punti di interesse di ft. Lauderdale. Proprietario e manager sono molto gentili e disponibili. Ci hanno accolto col sorriso malgrado fossimo arrivati alle 2 di notte! Davvero un soggiorno indimenticabile.
