!This place is great! its in a nice local neighborhood away from the touristic places but all is easy accessible by foot or one of the cars in the main street that provide taxi rides. The square around the corner has all you need like an ATM, supermarket an many nice places to eat, get fresh juices and observe the locals. The house is lovely, my room had a view of the sea and was very comfy. I cooked dinner in the outdoor kitchen. Communication with Gilliane was easy and pleasant. She arranged my taxi ride and during my stay the very friendly Sherihan made sure I had all I needed during my stay ( she even set me up to cook a traditional Egypt dish with two very friendly friends) Dahab is perfect place to relax, enjoy the underwater world, eat great and have a warm welcome by its warm and friendly inhabitants. Highly recommended!
This is the place to start living in a harmonious way. Meet the dawn and see off the sunset on the roof, do yoga and meditation in the garden, cook organic food in the same place in the surrounding of 12 palms and very friendly cats :) We were a bit unlucky with the internet, because the provider changed the line, so no wi-fi. Well, there is no hurry in Dahab.
I've stayed 12 nights in one room in 12 Palms and that was great! Nice and clean room on the 2nd (European 1st) floor, 2 windows, much light, much wind if you need it and the sea view. At the disposal of you there is wonderful garden with the kitchen and the roof with beautiful sea and roofs views. It takes just 5 minutes to get to the sea and 3 minutes to the nearest food store. The manager Sherikhan and the maintenance Tarek are very helpful and help you to feel comfortable as at home in the heart of authentic Dahab.
I spend a wonderful week together with 6 friends in 12 Palms. We were welcomed very friendly by the house manager Sherihan. She also arranged our transfer from the airport. Furthermore she had some great tips for eating out. Besides that she was very helpful in assisting one of the friends to seek medical assistance.
We called the house the villa, because it is very large with enough bedrooms and bath facilities, to host a larger group of people. The outdoor kitchen was great. We spend our breakfasts and evenings always there. A good place to be, with the large shady garden. Wifi worked perfect to remain in touch with our home bases. It made our stay in Dahab a very nice one.
And last but not least± a very convenient prepaid cellphone to do local calls.
So big thanks to Gilliane and Sherihan
The 12 PALMS is a nice and clean place to stay in a friendly neighbourhood. You are away from the big tourist areas, but they aren't too far away to walk to restaurants, buy some souvenirs and find some entertainment if you wish. Gilliane and Kasia the co-owner were always happy to help, they even have some locals you can call who come around to help you out during your stay. We went in December and the temperatures were just right at 22-27C. I can 100% recommend the 12 PALMS and would always go back if we decide to go to Dahab again.
Dahab was fabulous and 12 Palms was amazing! Kasia (co-owner) greeted me in rare form--giving me a private tour around the city upon arrival, inviting me to dinner with her friends, and was a fantastic hostess for the few days our trips overlapped! This is a peaceful home-away-from-home, and I hope to be back very soon!!! Comfortable beds. Hot showers. Gorgeous garden and roof deck. Quiet street that is $1 (5 EGP) taxi into town. Definitely book your Dahab trip at 12 Palms--you won't regret it!
The house is really nice, close to everything. Really appreciated staying in the old town. Dahab is fantastic! Oh and did I mentioned the amazing rooftop?
About the Host, Gilliane
I am Scottish, spent part of my childhood in Australia. Studied at Glasgow School of Art and did my MA at the Royal College of Art in London. Worked freelance in London as a textile designer and illustrator.
Moved to Warsaw to work as an Art Director at Lowe Advertising . Worked as Creative Group Head at Euro
RSCG and McCann Erickson. In 2008 with a friend bought a piece of land by the sea in Dahab and built our villa. It was a challenge but we have a wonderful engineer who really helped us. The villa was completed in 2009. I have a good senses of humour and the absurd which is essential if you want to build something in Egypt:) Now it is a great pleasure to make this place available for others to enjoy.
