Apartment overview - owner's description

West Bank of Luxor, quiet area close to ancient sites. Two bedrooms, full bath and kitchen, sitting room, roof-top balcony with Nile view, small garden.

Pass through the iron gate and you will find yourself in a bougainvillea-covered garden. Unlock the heavy front door, and you are in a marble entry hall with steps leading up to the spacious rooftop terrace. Your door is on the left the only other ground-floor unit has a separate entrance. In your apartment you will find everything you need to enjoy a comfortable and economical holiday: the beds are made, towels hang in the bathroom (with tub and hand-held shower), and the kitchen is well-equipped. Your host will bring you breakfast in the morning if you wish; otherwise, you determine how much to cook for yourself and how often to visit one of the several excellent restaurants in walking distance. When savvy tourists visit Luxor, they don't stay in the bustling city itself, but in the quiet, garden community of El Gazeera. Most tourists attractions are located on the West Bank of the Nile, so you save yourself a daily boat ride or lengthy drive across the bridge. (Only the Karnak and Luxor Temples and the Luxor Museum are on the East Bank all of the tombs, Deir el Bahari, and several temples are located on the West Bank.) Though quiet, this area has everything you need: small grocery stores, coffee shops and internet cafes, camel and donkey rides, taxis to take you anywhere in the region, and a nice mixture of international tourists and locals with ready smiles. Property owner Farag is a professional cab driver who frequently serves delegations of French, British, American, and other tourists. He speaks both English and French. He has even appeared in a French magazine! He and his borther had this villa built to their specifications; they are especially proud of the high ceilings. Farag will be happy to look in on you each day, help you arrange your schedule, run errands, or leave you entirely alone if that is your preference!

Ich war bei Kristie. Sie war selber nicht vor ort nach einen Anruf bei einem bekannten wurde sofort alles aufgeschlossen. Das Appartement war sehr geräumich und echt groß. Auf dem dach hat man einen perfekten blick auf den nil. Alles war sauber. Habe 5 std vorher gebucht also sehr kurzfristig. Wie gesagt jeder zeit gerne wieder. Danke kristie :) (Guest from Germany)

Our stay at Kristie and Ragab's place was a perfect end to a fantastic trip in Egypt. The flat is spacious and homely and spotlessly clean. Our family of five felt very much at home. Akmed comes in each day to tidy and even does the dishes. There was a nice selection of breakfast foods in the fridge and Kristie even kindly sourced the ingredients for pancakes at our sons request. Kristie took us a short distance from the flat to a local hotel with a nice garden and pool where we could order a beer (even during Ramadan) and have a swim. Kristie is interesting and informative and the combination of her Western experience of Egypt and that of her Egyptian husband Ragab is great for someone travelling there for the first time. We hired the services of Farag (the brother of Ragab) to drive us around for two days and he was extremely helpful and good company. His taxi service was also very well priced. The West Bank neighbourhood in which the flat is positioned, is relaxed and friendly and very picturesque. It is also opposite Luxor Temple on the other side of the river, a quick boat trip away. Egypt is receiving bad press at the moment but we felt safer here than in most places in our 4 months of travelling. We hope to come back one day. Thank you. (Guest from New Zealand)

I have returned to Farag's flat several times because it is convenient, clean, and affordable. Farag is absolutely trustworthy he takes care of any problems or issues with the apartment immediately. He'll even dro p off and pick up your laundry!--Guest from the United States
