We stayed at the Beach Retreat for one week and we had a most beautiful and amazing time. The place is located in a quiet area of Dahab, right by the sea, in a friendly, typical Sinai- neighbour ship. It is beautifully furnished, very arty and creative with items made of beachwood. It is a perfect location to relax or have an adventurous time. Fiona and her team are extremely helpful, kind, generous and trusting! Everything we wished, they arranged on the spot. Thanks a lot Fiona and Essam, for an unforgettable week in Dahab!
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.
The Beach Retreat is a beautiful place, all the furniture is made with love and I brought home some new ideas for my flat! The beds are really comfortable and the sight is amazing. Making BBQ in the night next to the beach is really something special!
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
We spent two weeks at The Beach Retreat at the end of September and it was just perfect from the very beginning throughout our whole stay.
And Fiona has a great part in this.
She was very helpful, kind and understanding from the first exchange of emails , where I was given all the information I needed.
On arrival she organized a driver who picked us up and took us right to the beach, where the apartment is.
Essam who is the manager of the Beach Retreat and the humblest and sweetest person we`ve ever met was there to greet us and tell us everything that we needed to know. Although Fiona was in Scotland at the time when we arrived, she gave us a call,(on the mobile phone, they let us to use, making it very easy to communicate with them) just to check that we got there safely and everything is alright and just to welcome us. :)
The Beach Retreat is in a great location with a busy and lively atmosphere in the town but still being quiet and peaceful at the same time, making it ideal for a relaxing holiday.
Just behind the house you can find a great bakery, vegetable market, pharmacy, shops for fresh fish and meat.
A lovely walk along the beach takes you to all varieties of restaurants, shops, coffee shops. You will also find places where you can dive or go on organized tours.
The apartment is spacious and decorated with a great taste and has a huge terrace all to yourself. We had all our meals outside and just enjoyed the wonderful view, the sound of the waves and the company of the local cats and dogs..... ;)
The Beach Retreat has everything you need for your comfort, but should you miss anything, Fiona and her lovely team will be more than happy to help you.
Dahab is a magical place with wonderful people and Fiona and her team are no exception. I can not fault the Beach Retreat and can only recommend it to everyone. Which is what happening as we just can`t stop talking about this place.
Can`t wait to be back and have this wonderful experience again!!
Thank you very much Fiona, Essam, Azizi and Nora!
Great stay in lovely Dahab
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.
