I can't stress enough how wonderful this apartment is. The porch is great and private for breakfast or relaxation, the apartment is clean with all the amenities you need and a great decor and the location (away from the main boardwalk) is really serene. The whole team was so so helpful in answering all of our questions and there is a wonderful into to Dahab reference in the apartment that gives you so many wonderful ideas immediately. Having their own taxi driver was great as we didn't have to worry about prices and Aziza (local contact) was really responsive to any questions we had. Finally, providing a local phone was such a nice touch. It made contacting everyone so easy and was much appreciated. My only issue was the internet. I stayed a few places in Egypt and had similar issues so it might just be a bit more difficult to get wifi? I spent most of my time enjoying Dahab so even that was so minor it really doesn't matter at all unless you plan on working from the apartment. (Don't because it's such an amazing place!!!)

Fiona's place is just up the coastline from Dai Pescatori, Dahab's beloved Italian restaurant. It's on a quiet and secluded beach area, away from most of the bustle around the bars, which is really exactly what you want from a trip to Dahab. The house is beautiful with a lovely outdoor area, including a small barbecue and a hammock. The furnishings indoors are thoughtful and tasteful- the entire place has clearly been put together and maintained with care. The whole package of service is also equally thoughtful, from the airport pickup to the kindness of Aziza, the lady in charge of the check-in and care of the house. The level of care made our journey from Cairo really easy and straightforward, which of course helped us feel on holiday. I booked to stay at Fiona's place as I was bringing some visiting friends to Dahab. We really couldn't have been more pleased with our stay, it was exactly what we wanted.

The Dahab beach house is a lovely retreat. Fiona had excellent communication, especially when we changed our arrival times last minute. The house is relaxing with an oceanfront view. It is located near markets and a short beach front walk to eel garden and lighthouse reef. The house manager helped us get taxis and snorkeling equipment. They were ready to help us with any need. We highly recommend this place.
