Place description
Villa Barbara is situated at the north edge of Dahab- el Assalah. Dahab is a small town that you can get around on foot or with cheap, easily accessible taxis. For the price of 1-5 euro, depending on the distance, you can get to every corner of Dahab. When planning further trips, you can use local travel agencies or contact the guide who will organize private tours. A list of contacts for the guide and minivan driver is available in each room, along with other information facilitating the holidays.
There is no parking on the property, a car can be park in front of the house. For those arriving to Sharm el Sheikh or Eilat, we can arrange transportation from the airport to the house. That system has been operating satisfactory for about 10 yearsIt is a quiet residential area with many homes owned by foreigners. Walk through the garden takes you to the beach where The Red Sea coral-reef starts directly from there. After a ten minute walk along the beach you will get to the promenade with restaurants, shops, sun loungers and diving centers. A 3 minutes walk from the villa will takes you to closest supermarket where all basic products are available for a reasonable price, but my personal recommendation is the local market square (5-7 minutes away) for a range of fresh and tasty vegetables, fruits, fish and sea food. There you will also find a pharmacy, butchers, household goods, small local traders and even a wine shop. This place is very lively, especially in the evening, when local people, Bedouins and foreigners are shopping, eating and enjoying shisha in local faces cafeterias. It is a perfect place to learn the local culture and my favourite place for shopping and meetings while having tasty fish or prawns.
The whole range of Egyptian, Italian, Indian, Chinese, Thai and other cuisines are available in restaurants 7-20 minutes walk from the villa. You can also use taxis, which are very cheap and available 24/7.
The villa is located 50 min drive from Sharm -el - Sheikh Airport and 90 minutes drive from Taba.

Dahab and surroundings
After long years of searching for a lovely, sunny place to live during European Cold Seasons, I found a perfect place which I can call my second home. And that is because of whole year of guaranteed sunshine, beautiful nature, stunning landscapes and its specific mood with friendly people. Dahab has bewitched me with its bohemian lifestyle, colourful sea and majestic Sinai Mountains. Together with the possibility of a wide range of sea sports such as snorkelling, diving, windsurfing, sailing etc, are making this area a perfect spot for all year holidays. Dahab is a cult place for divers, windsurfers and everyone who loves sea sports, as well as for fans of sun, desert safaris, mountain, canyon climbing, cycling, horse-riding and quad biking.
Sight seeing tours to famous historical spots such as Petra, Israel, Moses Mountain, St. Catherine Monastery and even Giza-Cairo or Luxor, can also be arranged from Dahab. The owner and manager will assist you to find the best option fitting your needs. We cooperate with best dessert guides, local travel agents and dive centers.

Lovely place to stay and only 10 seconds walk from the sea. Large, secure, pretty garden which was great for our small kids. Well equipped and not too far from good restaurants, bars and shops. The owner was extremely helpful - we had no issues at all. We very much recommend Villa Barbara for anyone coming to Dahab.

Barbara’s Villa Dahab.... This is quite simply outdoor living at its very best. The villa itself was built around three enormous palm trees which rise like GIANT bean stalks into the sky above. This then is your living room, open to the sky above. Only the vastness of the palm leaves act as a canopy above and reflect both light and natural moon...

I am PhD chemist, retired scientist and expert of the United Nations Environment Program. I made my dream come true and I created my second home in a beautiful place, where the sun shines 360 days a year, the desert mountains descend to the beautiful Red Sea. Swimming over the reef gives you an amazing experience reach of life Red Sea. I chose Sinai because of the beauty of nature. Dahab - because its a small place , where local society -both Bedouins and Egyptians -and foreigners live in harmony
