Going on a business trip, traveling for leisure or looking for ancient Egyptian treasures? Cairo is the place to be. Explore the region’s ancient history alongside a bustling and fast-growing city with its dizzying diversity.

The two-bedroom apartment on the 1st floor of a beautiful houseboat offers you an authentic Egyptian experience. It is situated on the Nile River and close to Cairo’s must-see attractions.

The space
The surrounding:

• You can easily embark on a city tour and explore Cairo’s city center. A 10-minute drive will get you to Downtown Cairo, Tahrir Square, and The Egyptian Museum. Explore this area with its Italian, French and British architecture, Greek restaurants and Egyptian cafés.
• On a lazy day, just cross the bridge to get to Zamalek island. It is a 2-minute drive or a 10-minute walk away from Home. It is a posh neighborhood where most of the embassies, nice villas, cafés, and restaurants are located. On your way there, you will encounter many art galleries, and if you want to spice your night a little, you can have a drink on one of Zamalek’s scenic rooftops or party in the best clubs in town.
• A 35-minute drive will get you outside the city to visit Egypt iconic Giza Pyramids.
• If you are an artist, you can spend most of your time home, seeking inspiration from the sweeping panorama of the Nile River.
• “Felucca” is a traditional Egyptian boat. Go for a little tour on the Nile and enjoy the sunset.

This is a very short list of what you could do; the rest is left to your imagination. Even a year wouldn’t be enough to discover all the jewels of this ancient city. However, a few days on this houseboat can give you a good glimpse of what life is like in Cairo.

Please note that there will not be any other guests allowed on the houseboat than the ones mentioned in your actual Airbnb reservation. It's a place that needs a lot of care, no suited for parties and no invitations.

Check-in is between 2 pm and 8 pm: please mention the time you would like to check-in we’re flexible.

Hope to welcome you soon!
