Other Things to Note
Female friendly beach,

From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
Loved the home and deco! Has everything you need but a microwave and the running water is salty. Rasha is the best Host and we already have several friends planning on coming here too! Enjoy!
It is a great place everything is just so perfect. Me and my friends stayed there for 5 days. It is on the beach and 5 minutes walk from the market. Rasha and Sammi are really great people.
It is perfect!
Cosy beach house was great. Rasha is a professional host. Rasha got in touch with us upon arrival and arranged with a driver to pick us up. The listing accurately reflects the existing condition of the apt. except for pluming - water coming from the shower head and faucet was a bit salty.
The apartment is about 1.5 miles (15 minutes walk, minimum) from markets, Resturants, etc. The food was ok- nothing compared to America. I snacked frequently to avoid stomach viruses and diarrhea.
The apartment is about 8-9 miles away from blue hole. It's best to have a car. Most cabs are pickup trucks and will attempt to rip you off. We became friends with a cab driver there and he charged us 25 pounds per person to go snorkeling in blue hole.
Dahab is full of beautiful mountains and has great potential. I would definitely go back. I liked it more than Sharm El-Sheikh.
Thank you so much Abdelrahman for staying in the rental with your friends. I am so glad that you loved the sunshine Dahab and I am looking forward to meet you again. The shower head has been fixed and sorry for that. I wish you told me that you need a car to take you to the Blue Hole, I have a good contact in Dahab and I always deal with a reliable drivers to take you anywhere in a reasonable rate and cheaper than what you got. There are many places her in Dahab provide a safe and tasty food, you just need to ask me or to ask locals for it. However, in general I am so happy to hear from you that you liked the place, the area, and me as a host. Have a safe trip back home.
My husband and my spent one week in the Cozy Beach house around New Year. We very glad to meet Rasha - she is very helpful, warm and opened person, good english, easy to communicate. Apartment is spacious, functional, good kitchen, very comfortable and large bed (we used one of bedrooms), strong wifi and air-condition (though we did not use it). View from the terrace is a germ as well as a possibility to swim in the Red Sea in front of the house. We enjoyed the plank beds and breakfasts every morning on the terrace. The only cons. was a smell of cats besides the doors (cats love this place and sofas outside), however, it might be difficult to get rid of it. Location of the apartment is quite and close (10 min walk) to the center of Dahab (the Light house). Thank you, Rasha, we wish you all the best.
Thank you so much Nadja, and wish you also all the best. I feel happy and cheerful when my guests enjoy their time in the sunshine Dahab. It is a wonderful place for people who seek quietness, comfort, and relaxing. I found a good idea to get rid of annoying cats sleeping on the sofas by spraying vinegar mixed with water on the sofas. Cats hate the smell of the vinegar and I will try it always. An advice I got from a friend.
Rasha is a really upbeat, warm and helpful host who lives close to the cozy beach house and is at hand for any help you might need. The house is lovely and beautifully decorated. The view of the red sea from the garden and from one bedroom is sublime. I loved having the beach literally on my doorstep. I've been coming to dahab for 15 years and I think this part of dahab, assilah beach, is the nicest. The beach is clean, it was empty most of the time. The proximity to the Bedouin village of Assilah means you are in closer contact with the local culture as opposed to tourist culture, as well s to shops and cheap local eateries. You are also a ten to fifteen minute walk to the tourist centre. The only possible drawbacks I would say is it can get windy on the seafront in the winter. If you stayed a few streets back from the sea you would be more sheltered from the sea, but with out the beautiful view! Also, the lack of sunlight inside the house bothered my friend, but my experience is that most local houses are designed that way to keep cool. At the time of writing dahab was in a 4 year tourism slump so you may be able to find something similar at a cheaper price if you shop around and bargain whilst in dahab though you might not get the same kind of decor and finish. The house and area are also really quiet and with out the artificial lights and razzmatazz of the centre so you feel much closer to nature and the stars are much brighter :-) If you are worried about general safety in dahab since many governments have declared all areas outside sharm el sheikh as dangerous, I must say I still feel so safe, also as a woman, there. There are problems in the north of Sinai I hear but Dahab still feels exceptionally peaceful, relaxed and tolerant and safe. The people are really suffering after 4 years of no tourists when there have been no disturbances at all in dahab. Its heart breaking to see. So please come back to this beautiful, sunny place - I'm sure you will be glad you did.
Thank you so much Anu for your review. What I liked most Your support for the people of Dahab and the area, and it is really appreciated from all of us in Dahab. Yes as you said the sunshine Dahab is a safe place to be in, and women friendly village. People like you who has been visiting Dahab for years back appreciate the area and its people. Thanks again.
This is the best place I have ever stayed in Dahab for lots of reasons...Rasha is simply a perfect host, that balance of super organised and reliable, nothing was a problem versus just being there and allowing us to make her home ours... Transfers, a welcome to a clean and tranquil environment, fruit, bread and cold beers just a few touches that were so welcome... Very comprehensive local information, a local phone....and the best location in Dahab to be a stones throw from the sea without hoards of other people, a view that is magnificent and the bustle and local lively Asala area to shop, eat well and enjoy... We hired bikes for the week so it was easy to ride along the beach to town Dahab... And a quicker ride back on the roads... Also so safe and secluded at the same time... Thank you Rasha :-)
Our second time back to the Cozy Beach House and we love it. A brilliant location and a classy pad to enjoy Dahab beach life. Thank you Rasha!

About the Host, Rasha
I have worked in the hotel and tourism industry in Dahab since I graduated from university twenty years ago. I love Dahab and my job so much, and I've always believed in the quality of service. My job is just perfect for me, makes me meet a lot of people and make friends from all over the world, which I feel shapes my personality for the better and vice versa. I am well familiar with the area and its people. I also have great connections, access to tourists benefits, provide a safety net during your stay, and have had the transformative experiences that I will recommend for you. I'll help you discover the stories waiting to be told.
