About this listing
After an adventurous day in the hustle and bustle of Cairo, retreat to the quiet and beauty of your private apartment on a houseboat on the River Nile. Located a few minutes from the center of the city, you will find it hard to believe that such tranquility can be found amidst the chaos of this wonderful city. Enjoy the fresh breeze on your private balcony with a spectacular panoramic view of the Nile and the city, or just take in the view from the large windows and glass door from within.
While as a houseboat the overall feeling is rustic and bohemian with wooden floors and cozy ambiance, the furnishings can be described as basic Scandinavian with a touch of Egypt. Amenities include air conditioners, ceiling fans, washing machine, wireless internet, satellite TV, balcony, large equipped kitchen, and a lovely garden with bench (on the connecting land).
Your hosts, Dan (from the USA) and Mia (from Sweden), will share their decades of experience living in Cairo and traveling throughout Egypt and the region to assist you in any way we can to make your stay in our beloved Cairo a most memorable one. To begin with, for example, we have wonderful Egyptian drivers who speak good English to take you to and from the airport; and our private tour guides are the best!
This beautiful 2-bedroom apartment is only rented in its entirety for your total privacy.
We look forward to welcoming you to our paradise on the Nile. Dan & Mia
No noise or large parties.
Clothing worn on the balcony must be respectful of Muslim culture.
Only registered guests are allowed on the houseboat. (No outside visitors.)
