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

Villa Tunis is a true gem! We loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5

Villa Tunis is a beautiful oasis tucked into a wonderful neighborhood, Victoria Park. When we arrived, we were greeted by Gamal, the most gracious, delightful and caring individual you'd ever meet. He takes great pride in reviewing all the details of the property and your stay. He fusses over you like a Concierge at a 5 star hotel (in a good way!). Our apartment was very comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. Our courtyard is professionally landscaped, with comfortable chairs, gas grill and heated pool area. We never heard a sound from the neighboring properties. Victoria Park is surrounded by restaurants, markets, and stores of all kinds. The beach is a short drive, as is Los Olas. As we left, we were making plans to return next year.

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We rented all five apartments over the Christmas week. The property was beautiful and well maintained. The location was excellent: Las Olas and the Riverwalk 5 minutes away, the beach a 10 minute drive. There were multiple restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The pool was somewhat small, but the kids loved it nonetheless. The management was quickly and competently responsive to our needs. I highly recommend staying at Villa Tunis.

Outstanding location, great privacy, lots of room, and clean.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the very private pool surrounded by well kept gardens. The location was near everything but far away enough to be quiet. We stayed in the big two bedroom two bath apartment and had lots of room. Well equipped kitchen. Everything was very clean. The owner hung around a little more than he needed to, but I would recommend this as a prime rental.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Villas Tunis was a great place to stay for me and my brother, it was clean, comfortable and quiet, close to amenities. The property manager Gamal was very helpful and accommodating. He was helpful in getting us oriented to the local area, directing us to a local Italian Restaurant ILl Mulinos. Close to downtown, walking distance to the Riverwalk shoppes and restaurants, and short drive to beaches. Highly recommend this place for travelling to the Fort Lauderdale area!
