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, and ATM, 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 barbecue area in the garden is the perfect spot to enjoy the warm balmy nights.
If you wish, take the grill out onto the beach and enjoy your barbecue there.
We've made sure that all you'll need to enjoy a perfect holiday in Dahab is here at The Beach House.

Our manager is on call to help with anything you may require, or to leave you to enjoy yourselves in privacy. As you wish!
The neighbourhood is a fantastic one, nestled in the heart of Dahab's Bedouin area. Our neighbours are lovely Bedouin familes who will welcome you with open arms.
Behind us we have the souk, our local market and square where you'll find a friendly and funky mix of Egyptian, Bedouin and European culture.

Super Vorbereitung vor Reiseantritt via E-Mail! Vor Ort wurden wir freundlich von der "Hausmanagerin" empfangen., dies stand uns mit Rat und Tat zu Verfügung und hat z.B. den Bustranfer zum Flughafen organisiert! Insgesamt sehr empfehlenswert!
Fiona was very responsive all along in all of her messaging and provided a lot of details from the start - it was a very enjoyable experience even before we got there.
We were welcomed by Aziza and Essam and they answered any additional questions we had on the house and on Dahab.
The pictures and description were pretty accurate: the house has a lot of charm and is comfortable. You will find a booklet in the house with all the information you might need about the city, getting around, suggestions, numbers, who to call for what etc.
The outside: the house is literally by the water, just open that big beautiful door and you'll be steps away from the water or close it for more privacy. The only thing we did not realize before booking was that the garden was shared with the other listing that Fiona has in Dahab (although it is mentioned in the description).
The inside: there is 1 living room, 1 kitchen, 1 bathroom and 2 bedrooms with 2 double beds - they are comfortable and clean. There are 2 Air conditioning units: in the big bedroom and in the living room. If you are more than 4 people, you might need to use the seating in the living room as beds which would be the least comfortable option. The bathroom has an open shower which means that it can get a bit messy each time someone takes a shower but it is very manageable.
The location: you will be a bit off the center of Dahab and a 15 minutes walk off the more busy streets of Dahab. This was a great combination for us and we loved the location.
Overall, this was a great experience and a lovely week we spent at the Beach House Dahab - We felt at home and sure hope to be back again soon!
We loved the beach house its in a very quiet location.
Aziza the manager and Essam were very helpful and nice.
The house was clean and having everything you might need.
Small & cosy
(the only confusing thing from the photos was the private garden, althought its written in the description that its shared with a twin-house, but I haven't read it before booking (but it wouldn't have changed anything anyway :)
We all loved our stay and overall Experience.
I went to Egypt for a week with my boyfriend 4 nights in Dahab and 3 in Sharm, after our stay at the Beach House we regretted not staying the 7 nights. Fiona arranged our airport transfer, upon arrival there was a large bowl of fruit and water left for us, which was a lovely touch. The house is connected to Beach House ll, where you share the garden. The house is well equipped, clean and tidy, totally functional for your stay. The garden gates open straight onto the beach, the view in the morning is amazing. There's a barbecue which unfortunately we didn't get round to using. A short walk to the back of the house brings you to the market area, there are supermarkets, butchers a wine shop to my surprise and delight, everything you need is close at hand. There is a mobile in the house with all the numbers you may need. The house wifi worked perfectly for us, we have our own travel modems and only used them when we were out and about. Fiona was in contact from the first night, if there was anything we needed just to ask. We were met by Issam on arrival and departure and often met him in the street for a chat. Fiona made a point of coming to say Hi on our departure evening, she let us leave at our leisure as the house wasn't booked so we didn't have to travel in the heat of the day. I have stayed at the other end of Dahab before but prefer this area, goats walking in the market, camels in the sea, horses being trained. Fiona was a dive instructor for many years, she can recommend good dive centres. It truly is both relaxing and romantic. Would I go again..of course, in a heart beat. My boyfriend has already been recommending this place to his friends.
We stayed in the Beach House with two little kids and found it very comfortable. We especially loved the beautiful view on the sea from the terrace and the cozy bedrooms and and the courtyard where the children enjoyed to play on their own (though still be aware of the stairs near the fireplace which lead to the roof). We also loved the small treats we had on our arrival from Fiona and the detailed guide to everything in the house and around Dahab. We loved the fireplace in the courtyard where we cooked fish and shrimps almost every evening. It was also nice to have assistance with the small chores around the house (thank you Assam and Aziza!).
There were some points we didn't like: bad or no internet connection once in a while (which was important for us) and many ants around the house.
But all in all, we thought we were lucky with our choice. We liked to get back to our house after a day out in lagoona. We felt safe and warm there. Thank you, Fiona!
I don't even know where to start, my boyfriend and I had such a great time! Fiona is the best host I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She is a such a lovely, kind person, and together with the rest of the Beach House team she'll do everything to make sure you have an unforgettable time. The Beach House is gorgeous, exactly like the pictures, tastefully decorated and in a great location - just a 10 minute walk from the bay area, where you can find many shops and restaurants that serve delicious food! The walk there is very pleasant too, as it is along the sea. Dahab is an amazing place which we'll never forget - very quiet, relaxing and safe. And the people there are just so friendly! If you are into snorkeling and diving, you must visit Dahab. And there's no better place to stay in than Fiona's Beach House - you're guaranteed to have a great time if you do so :) Can't recommend her and this place enough!
WOW!!! I don't know where to begin..I knew this place is paradise when I saw the pictures..but when my boyfriend and me were actually there, all our expectations have been satisfied!
The house is beautiful and you just feel like home. It's clean and very comfortable. When we arrived we found fresh fruit and wine in the kitchen..a perfect welcome! :-)
Not to mention Fionas effort before and during our trip, to make it a perfect one!! I can't imagine a better Manager. Even though we hadn't the chance to meet her in person, we are fully impressed with her! She is such a friendly and warm person!!!
We had a wonderful time in Dahab, we loved the neighbourhood with all it's friendly people. We had a couple of bedouin tea with them :-))
There is a lot to do in the Dahab, or Never Gerd boring..we really enjoyed ourselves and of course the perfect weather. We had great and cheap dinner every night. We definitely want to come back soon! Thank you so much for the cute present Fiona and Essam, the wooden sign is hanging in our kitchen and reminds us of special and unique holidays!! We already miss Dahab!!!
Thank you for everything!!!
Best wishes from Miki and Lisa
