About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, we 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.

                                                  Thank You Ernest for an amazing place. My wife and I loved our entire week. This place is an oasis, a calm safe, clean, quiet oasis in the wonderful Victoria Park area of Fort Lauderdale.

                                                  We walked to five super restaurants right around the corner. Your manager Gamal is fantastic. He came by almost everyday to check on everything. Only 5 units in 2 bungalows. People book this and you will love it. 9.5 out of 10. Only a 3 minute drive to Los Olas. Amazing Thank you so much for everything. My wife and I will be back, but 2 weeks next time not just one. Keith & Ann

                                                  Jane F.

                                                  My husband and I spent a blissful 2 weeks at Villa Tunis this March. Our well-equipped apartment was spotless and so very comfortable. Villa Tunis is well-located to beach, shopping, restaurants, grocery stores and patios. When we felt like staying close to home, the pool and loungers became the perfect destinations for a lazy afternoon. When the great outdoors called, bike paths, tennis courts and walking parks were close at hand We have never enjoyed ourselves so much in Florida, and thank awesome hosts, Gamal and Ernest, for offering this lovely spot to relax and rejuvenate!
