"Perfect villa for relaxation in a beautiful setting"
I stayed in this beautiful and comfortable villa with a group of friends in June. It is in a perfect location - close enough to the restaurants, cafes and dive centres without any of the noise and hassle that you get in the centre of town. The balcony and various roof terraces have fantasic views up the coast where you can happily sit, read, relax and let the Sinai evenings gently slide on by. Our host Axel made our stay even more relaxing, sorting out transport, recommending activities and the best centres through which to organise those activites. In many ways the perfect holiday (and amazing value for the size, quality and location of the villa) - thoroughly recommended!
thank for your beautiful review. See you next time.

"Amazing villa in top notch location"
We stayed in the White House for a week, and absolutely loved it. The villa itself is massive, and very well located. Axel, the host, could not have been kinder - he gave us a tour of Dahab on the first morning, put us in touch with a great dive centre, and recommended some great activities and restaurants throughout the week. He also sorted out transport, so the whole week felt effortless. Unbelivably good value, and highly recommended!
thank you very much for this wonderful review. You were the best i had in a long time. Greetings from Dahab have a great weekend.

The house looks very luxury and royal, with all the comforts. All windows view at the sea and sea is very close! All the shops-restaurants-diving under sideways. Our company had two one-year-old kids, and they felt happy and comfortable in the house. The owner is very friendly and hospitable, lives in the next house and always responds to any request. It's a great feeling-to live on the shore of the sea! We are so happy that we've visited Dahab and White house :)))

"Great location on the beach!"
Lovely family size villa although only 2 of us rattling around in it! Great location and well equipped with all basics and a few nice additional touches with some essentials provided. Rooms large, airy with high ceilings, master bedroom has balcony and a sun deck, with sun beds also in the garden, or straight out onto the beach. Axel (owner) couldn't have been more helpful right from emails prior to booking, arranging collection from airport and offering to act as tour guide. First restaurants are 100m from the villa and lots of choice if you stroll all the way round to the cove, Italian was our favourite for dinner, also loved the Bedouin tent in front of the Coral beach Hotel. On windy days walked round to the cove where it is more sheltered. Ideal for wind surfing, kite surfing, snorkelling and diving or just chilling!

"Very very good"
Located in a quiet area of Dahab but at the same time only a lovely short walk away from all the town buzz, Villa Whitehouse is extremely comfortable, offers lots of space, both in the house and in the surrounding yards, and is right at the sea! There is two big roof terraces and 3 groundfloor terraces (one with bbq and one with table tennis) plus a gigantic yard. We could go snorkeling by just walking out of the backyard.The owner is very friendly and helpfull, going out of his way to make sure we were comfortable (not at all in an intrusive way though) and gave us helpfull tips and contacts to find our way around easily. The villa is 2 minutes from a local market square where you can buy anything you need. House is very well equipped and everything works. Would recommend it to anyone!

"Lovely seaside villa in quiet and friendly Dahab"
We had a very relaxing pre-christmas break in Dahab.The owner of villa Whitehouse, Axel who lives next door was very helpful even before our holiday began.As this was our first time in Egypt and we were travelling with young children,he clarified quite a few of our questions via e-mail.He even did some grocery shopping for us on request and arranged for a baby cot and high chair.Airport transfers and local taxi trips were also organised via him.He provided very useful tips and suggestions during our visit and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable.The villa is spacious and has gorgeous views.We went to sleep and woke up to the sounds of the sea!The villa is located close to shops and local restaurants- we can recommend Dai Pescatori ( just a short walk away from the villa) for lovely italian food.Overall we were very satisfied with our holiday in villa Whitehouse.

"Unique architect villa ideally located."
We spent a lovely relaxing time in the White House, whose Nubian-style architecture is definitely breathtaking (and surely deserves to be on the cover of any home style magazine), but also very friendly for large families or friends gathering. Rooms are large with high ceiling, the three of them have views on the sea, and their arrangement enable high degree of privacy. The kitchen/living room, where everyone meets, is very pleasant. The courtyard is perfect for kids (there's notably a pingpong table), or for enjoying the different moments of day and the sun.
With the direct access to the sea by the yard door (both reef and small sand beaches close-by), restaurants on the seafront a minute away , and many stores in the vicinity, the villa is ideally located, as one - depending on the mood - can choose to feel both completely isolated (only "disturbed" by the sound of waves) or very close from the beat of the town.
The villa by itself is a gem, but the presence of the owner in the adjacent home, who has been living in Dahab for many years, and is always available and willing to give advice or to provide any sort of help, makes a huge difference.
My only concern is that it will surely be booked when I would like to return...
