Scuba Diving,Water sports, Trips and Eating Out
From this wonderful location you can experience any kind of holiday you desire - from a totally relaxing retreat to an action-packed adventure. Hurghada is famous for its World-class diving. The quality of the reef is said to be surpassed only by the Great Barrier Reef. The area is also renowned for wreck diving such as the Thistlegorm.
All levels of diving are catered for from basic training through to advanced technical dives. You can pre-book this through me if you wish. If there are members of your party who dont wish to dive, they are able to join you either to snorkel or just to take the boat trip. An excellent lunch is served on full day trips.
You will find many other water sports including kite surfing, catamarans and fishing. An Aqua park, fabulous beaches and spas are available close by there is an 18-hole USPGA golf course 20 kilometres away. There is also a fantastic choice of restaurants to suit every taste from fine dining to Macdonalds and Pizza Hut to fabulous inexpensive local fish restaurants. There are several nightclubs including Ministry of Sound and Hard Rock café.
Desert safaris, Quad Safaris, excursions to Luxor, Cairo, Aswan and the pyramids at Giza can all be arranged for you. We can even arrange a 3 or 5 day cruise down the Nile for you. If you want to book these trips they can be booked through our friend who will pick you up from the airport on your arrival. If you wish to prebook and pay for your trips and diving before your departure from the UK contact me for full details and prices. This can be arranged.
Local taxis and buses are very cheap and although car hire is possible it is not recommended. The Egyptians seem to drive on both sides of the road and a lot of the time without lights on even when it is dark!! Surprisingly on my many trips I have not seen an accident.
From the UK you can fly directly into Hurghada.From elsewhere if you cannot get a direct flight you can fly via Luxor or Cairo.Egyptair fly daily into Hurghada from both Luxor and Cairo.
Flights get booked up quickly especially in school holidays so it is as well to book as early as possible.
For your convenience you will be met at Hurghada airport by a friend of ours who will transport you to our apartment and return you there at the end of the holiday. He can also arrange any diving or excursions you wish to make at a very reasonable price.

During your stay we do not accept any liability whatsoever for death, personal injury, accidents, loss or damage to persons or personal effects, however caused.
The swimming pool is very occasionally closed for maintenance.Unfortunately because it is a shared pool we have no control over this and cannot accept liability if the pool is unavailable for use during your stay. There are pools fairly close by that you will be able to use if this happens.
The property is located in the New Hurghada area .It is easy to reach both Sekala and Al Bahar by taxi(20-30EGP)or minibus(1-2EGP pp). Just step out of the gate and grab one in the street (we never waited moore than 30 sec).There is a good supermarket just across the street.If you want to bring beer or any kind of alcohol to the apartment you have to buy it at the dutyfree store within 48 hrs after landing.(Bring your passports). The nearest beach is a 10 min. walk to the Old Vic Hotel(admission fee 25EGP pp incl.sunchair).Note: As in every hotel in Hurghada you can not bring food or drinks,you have to buy it within the hotel area.
The New Hurghada center area,with a lot of resorts.restaurants,shops and some nightclubs is a 10-15 min. walk away.The apartment was very spacious,had a good kitchen and comfortable beds.The only negative thing was that since it was on the groundfloor and just outsidide the balcony there was a big tree it was very little sun on it.But over all we were very satisfied with the apartment.Nobi, the guy who pics you up at the airport and brings you back after your visit,was VERY nice and helpfull. We were 4 pers.and for ourselves he arranged a 1-day excursion to Cairo incl.a minibus that could carry 15 pers,2drivers and a private guide at a resonable price. We would certainly recommend

We were very satisfied with the apartment we hired. It was near by the centre of Hurghada, and near the beach. In the apartment there were all facilities one needed, and it was very practical for a big family like ours. The patio was peaceful, and the swimming pool near by was clean and it was lovely to use it when we were not on the beach. It was very helpful to have a guide who picked us up from the airport, who ordered all the trips we wanted to make and took us back to the airport at the end of the holiday. We will recommend this apartment to others who are interested to travel to Hurghada.
As a family of six this was a perfect place to stay! Close to all we need - both supermarket, beach and the Esplanada - yet a quiet surrounding.
The apartment was spacy and well equipped, and made a great place for the kids to relax after long days.
Spacious, clean and well kept apartment in a good location in Hurghada. It was of a good modern standard for Egypt. Pool is of a very good size, - though we spent most of our time at a nearby beach, which appears to be one of the better ones in Hurghada. We were there in August, and the pool during that time was regularly cleaned. Apartment was cleaned twice during our 10 day stay.
Transfers to/from the airport were arranged for us, and the local contact was very helpful.
The property is only a short (and cheap) taxi ride from central Hurghadas markets and restaurants.
Restaurants, banks etc on the modern esplanade were only a 5 to 10 min walk away.
Apartment was in a residential block of apartments, and was very quiet.
This villa was very good value for money with many home comforts. It is well equipped, clean, spacious and will comfortably sleep 8.The bathroom and tiolet facilities are very good, although the showers would be better with a curtain around them. The kitchen is well served with new fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker, washing machine and plenty of pots,pans, plates and cutlery. The swimming pool and surrounding area is sufficient but not secluded from the other villas and the pool tends to get leaves blown into it although it is cleaned on occassions.

Chanos UK.Date Submitted: June 06, 2008 Date of Stay: February 2008 Gorgeous apartment, beautifully decorated and spacious. The owners are really lovely and helpful. Nobi is fabulous and will organise anything for you from an excursion to food shopping. I am disabled and use a wheelchair and they all went out of their way to make the apartment accessible for me. They took the bathroom door off it's hinges, purchased a raised toilet seat, ramped the entrance, even borrowed a wheelchair from the local hospital for me during my stay. Unfortunately the pool was out of action during our stay but we took a 15 min stroll to 'The Mariot' hotel where for a small fee we could use all their facilities for the day with a room thrown in (they have a heated pool). Wonderful food (avoid 'The Bull') friendly locals, beautiful beaches. Overall a lovely holiday Recommended for: People with Disabilities, Tourists without a Car, Families with Young Children, Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway

NicolaG Wiltshire.Date Submitted: June 17, 2008 Date of Stay: January 2008 The apartment was spacious and clean and well positioned being close to the airport, close to a great beach and only a quick taxi ride into town. The person who 'comes with' the apartment is just superb - friendly and helpful and so welcoming. We were catered for brilliantly with our three young children and would definitely go back again.

"What a great holiday much better than Sharm, location great easy 5 min walk to beach, food in resort very cheap and very good, apartment fantastic, Nobi the guide great fella and one you can trust, 2 week holiday well worth the money. WE WILL BE BACK" Robert L.from BradfordAugust 2008
The apartment is wonderfully large and is very private and extremely clean and not in an overly commercial area. It is also near the shops where local people buy their food, so its very cheap to self-cater. We found the local people very welcoming and the owners of this apartment were also so helpful in setting it all up for us, with all the local information and hints about where to go and with a very gracious local agent too! It really made the experience so much more personal instead of being treated as yet another tourist. Its about a 10 minute walk to the beaches which are clean and very quiet. The area is slowly developing but I’m sure it will stay quiet for many years to come. Mrs L Dec 2006
The flat was lovely, very spacious, smart and comfortable and the balcony was really nice.Nobi was excellent and the services he provided were first class. He made the holiday happen for us (Nobi is our friend who picks our guests up from the Airport and arranges any excursions, diving etc. they may wish to make whilst on holiday at very reasonable prices)The new supermarket nearby was excellent. So cheap, always open and even got us some fruit and delivered it to the door G.S. Oct 2006Thank you so much for a lovely holiday. We had a fantastic time and the Apartment is lovely.Nobi was helpful too, and so full of smiles ! M.L Dec 2006
There are two large sofas in the living room. one of these converts into a king sized bed and sleeps a further 2 people.
A Travel cot,high chair and baby buggy complete with sunshade are available. Please note that we do not provide bedding for the travel cot.
There are 3 wide steps up to the apartment entrance and we have a ramp which can be put down for the length of your stay if necessary to negotiate these. I think access to the kitchen may be difficult in a wheelchair but the rest of the apartment is spacious. There are 2 grab rails in the en suite shower room and we also have a shower stool and a raised toilet seat.Please email me with your telephone number so that we can discuss these facilities before booking.
Occasionally the swimming pool has to be closed for maintenance. As this is a shared pool we have no control over this. However if the pool was unavailable during your stay we will try to make other arrangements for the use of a nearby pool.
