About the Apartment

Mission Statement: To provide safe, relaxing and comfortable accommodation in the owner's holiday home at a reasonable price.

The apartment location has been carefully chosen by the owner as his own private holiday home. Factors taken into consideration were - closeness to the Airport after a long flight, close to two beaches, namely, beach 9 (Free) and Magawish Hotel Complex.

The location is in a quiet residential neighbourhood of private villas with a local mini market close by providing essentials. Close to Senzo Shopping Mall, Carfour, Ragabb, Betterways & Metro Supermarkets. On your way to the Supermarkets you will meet several locals who are friendly and welcoming. By staying in Magawish you escape the hassle and hooting horns of the yellow taxis. By calling Careem Taxis on your mobile app which Ali will install for you on your arrival when picking up the keys for apartment,to take you down town to Shereton Road and Marina for just 50Le (€2). In the Shereton/Marina areas you have a wide choice of restaurants and shops.

The Pool is ideally located outside the apartment door. Enjoy a relaxing time by the pool in the tropical sunshine, while you sunbathe you can pop inside for an ice cold drink or refreshments. Ali, the apartment manager, speaks fluent English and is available to organise and advise on trips such as:- (1) Sea Safari (2) Desert Safari (3) Diving/Snorkeling (4) Wind Surfing (5) Boat trips on the Red Sea (6) Trips to Cairo -Pyramids and Museum.
