Thanks for looking at The Beach House and Beach Retreat Dahab.
We hope to see you happy here soon on the beach!
If I can help with anything please feel free to drop a line.
I'll be happy to help : )
We had such a wonderful time staying at Fiona's apartment, she is a perfect host; I've stayed at a few Airbnb places over the years, but Fiona thought of literally everything a traveler could possibly need.
The house was immaculate, has an awesome view, and was super cozy: fully equipped, clean, well-furnished and centrally-located. Fiona was very helpful with us, she sent us detailed instructions on the house and the place: suggestions, beautiful places to visit and all you need for a perfect holiday. Dahab is magic, great place for those seeking relaxation, tranquility and peace. Nice walk to the best restaurants and bars, just a few minutes by foot. When we arrive we found food and drinks in the fridge and a good bottle of white wine: we felt right at home.The staff she had is very kind. We'll definitely be back. Choose this house if you want to go to Dahab,I recommend her listing to all Airbnb guests.
You won't regret it!
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.
I cant fault this place. My son and myself had the pleasure of staying here late June 2013. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and we were welcomed with fresh fruit, Bedouin bread, water, milk etc which was great after a long drive from Taba. 10 mins walk away on the beachfront the main restaurants provided great menus at little cost. Fiona came to say hello and took us to Laguna beach where my son encountered (much to his surprise) an octopus whilst snorkelling. He still talks about it today. Great place, highly recommended ! Great free wifi too and tv. Thanks again Fiona. We hope to be back !
