The Beach House
The location of The Beach House is like no other. With the beach only 5 metres from your door, just step outside and jump into the crystal clear, fresh, clean and warm waters of the Red Sea.
Beach life is beautiful here and the sandy beach outside is a quiet and relaxing haven; perfect for sunbathing, paddling, swimming, snorkelling, beach combing and cozy fires. Enjoy it by day and by night!
Grab a kayak or surf board and paddle or swim out over the shallows and find yourself on the world class Eel Garden Reef, the drop-off where turtles, glass fish, clown fish and banner fish congregate around the technicoloured corals.
Walk just 2 minutes along the beach to find the fabulous beach restaurants of Dai Pescatori, Blue Beach and El Dorado to name but a few. Walk a little further and you're at The Lighthouse, another of Dahab's famous snorkelling, swimming and sunning spots.
2 minutes walk behind The House and you're in The Souk; a colourful and vibrant part of town where you can find all the supplies you'll need. There's The German Bakery, a well stocked and helpful pharmacy, many supermarkets, an off-licence, a profusion of fresh food and drink and lots of fun with the super-friendly shopkeepers.
For a small charge, a private taxi service is available day and night to whisk you over to The Bay, Mashraba, or the beaches and snorkelling spots at Lagoona, The Blue Hole, Wadi Gnai and the 3 Pools. Just call or arrange a time and the drivers will come back and collect you.
What better way to finish a day in nature than to light up a fire and get down to grilling some fresh fish, available to order daily as you wish. The barbeque area in the garden is perfect for gatherings large and small.
We've made sure that all you'll need to enjoy a perfect holiday in Dahab is here at The Beach House.

Fiona has been an exceptional host, her kindness and warm welcome left us feeling as if we had made a lovely friend in Dahab. She looked after us to every need and more. The beach house is beautiful and no better location you'll find also, we'll be back with great enthusiasm!!
My husband and I spent a month in The Beach House with our four children. We loved the house as well as the garden. What you see is exactly what you get. Fiona is an amazing host, she and her team did everything possible to make our stay there a lovely experience. Any problems we had we sorted out quickly and efficiently.
It was great for Fiona to organise our transfer from and to the airport. When we arrived we had cold drinks waiting for us as well as supplies for breakfast the next morning. We also had the use of a mobile phone which was great and came in very handy.
The location was just perfect with the market behind the house and restaurants a short walk away. The beach being so close made it just perfect for the children to play in. The area is perfectly safe and we really felt at home is this neighbourhood. All the locals are super friendly and warm.
I cooked most of our meals and everything I needed was available in the market. My kids loved the food and were very happy with the meals I cooked using local fresh produce.
We spend many of our days going for walks, hanging out is restaurants, swimming, sun bathing. We also went to the mountains, when in the yellow submarine, did some watersports, and camel riding etc. There is a lot to do in Dahab. What I really loved about Dahab is the choices you have of having a really quiet holiday or an action packed one. There is something for everyone.
I particularly enjoyed watching the sun rise in the mornings which happens on your doorstep, it is truly spectacular.
We were all very sad to leave and will miss Fiona, the beach house and Dahab very much.
Do not have any hesitations booking with Fiona as I can assure you it will be amazing.
Elite experience! Amazing reception, exceeding our expectations throughout the trip, which made us extend our stay for extra 4 days, and it was never enough!
Safe, calm, special & cosy; that made us feel like VIPs
Everything is just a thought away
From the very moment we made the booking we began a fantastic and very happy journey with Fiona. From her detailed, accurate and very informative emails before our trip, to the speedy way in which she responded to questions she has no doubt answered dozens of times, Fiona proved herself reliable, informed and immeasurably helpful.
The magic continued once we were ensconced in her beautiful beach cottage. It is beautifully presented and full of little touches that make the cottage feel lived, loved and very personal. Fiona has gathered around herself a happy and helpful management team that was there to greet me, my wife and our two young boys. No request was too big or small, whether it was for wood for a night-time fire on the beach, or a door-to-door quad-biking adventure, they can do it all. We made many new Bedouin and Egyptian friends and left with a very heavy heart at the end of our trip.
The cottage itself is lovely, and spacious enough for a family. It's pretty, but not fussy. It's functional but not primitive (although the shower took a bit of finessing to keep the water at a steady warmth).
We happily spent our days either in the enclosed courtyard, or on the beautiful sandy beach immediately outside. We did some snorkelling around Dahab and found the shallow coral reef 50 meters out from the house to have the best concentration of fish on our trip. On windy days we walked a pleasant 10 minutes along the beach to the town area with loads of restaurants and shops, never more than a few moments from the next happy, friendly, smiling face.
All in all, this was without a doubt our own best family holiday and has set the bar impossibly high for anywhere else we might foolishly be tempted to go.
Fiona's Beach House scores an easy 11 out of 10.
Fiona's place was great; right on the beach front and spacious. Fiona went out of her way to help us make our stay as enjoyable as possible. She organised fish from the local market (for a bbq), a taxi to the Laguna and a taxi back to the airport. There was a mobile phone at the apartment so we communicate easily with Fiona and The welcome pack was the most informative I have ever seen.
It is a 75m swim from the apartment to the edge of the reef (all really shallow). We loved snorkeling out and exploring. It was so peaceful. Eel garden stars was a great place to hang out in the day time if you want a slight change of scenery. It's really close by. The lighthouse area is a short walk for the main restaurant strip.
The apartment had loads of lovely touches, including lots of food and drink in the fridge on our arrival. This was our second visit to Dahab. We'll definitely be back.
I don’t even know where to begin!? Fiona is one of the kindest and understanding people I have met on Airbnb. I made a reservation almost three months in advance and we exchanged multiple emails where she answered all my questions with caring and kindness. Unfortunately, I had to cancel the reservation, and Fiona was super understanding. All I can say is that if I ever end up traveling to Egypt, Dahab and the beach house will be my first stop. Thanks again Fiona for everything.
