"Excellent apartment to rent in el gouna"
We just came back from a wonderful vacation in El gouna staying in this apartment. We were very pleased with everything from a-z, from the payment method all the way to returning the keys to the agent.
The apartment was great, had everything suiting us to have comfortable vacations. Was clean, AC working in all rooms, showers were excellent, very clean with strong water pressure (which is rare in Egypt), no one can see threw any windows, even in the dining area where there is no curtains, the glass area on windows is very small and besides having glass decorations it has a net for mosquitoes. We had a complete privacy even when the cleaners came to clean the area on the terrace.
The apartment is very close to the swimming pool, yet far enough to have some privacy, it has two entrances, which is great for kids running around, we had 3 small kids with us, and had no concerns for safety. There is the third entrance from one bedroom, which also has a small terrace for itself, from this bedroom you can wake up in the morning looking at palm trees and wonderful gouna. It is also great if you forget something in the room, you do not have to enter and go through the apartment, it was very safe and we could leave everything wide open at all times, very very comfortable.
Parking is few meters from back entrance, and the second entrance has a nice sitting (small) terrace looking the gouna area. It is great for having a nice breakfast with wonderful and peaceful view, as well as nice evening sitting with friends... we really enjoyed all that, while the kids were playing around safely.
I also have to mention any requests we had, mr. John the agent for this apartment, was available immediately. He made sure we had no complications.
For the pool check with the owner if it will be heated, as they were fixing it when we were leaving. We really recommend this apartment for anyone, specially with kids or even if you are single, it is a great get away from stressful life. We will definitely return back.
I would also like to thank to Mr. Thomas the owner for everything!
Best regards, Nina

"Our home from home"
if your looking for somewhere to stay in el gouna that is clean,well situated and family friendly then i would highly recommend this villa.
we have stayed at this villa 3 times and 4 times at the owners sister property also in el gouna and we have booked again for april 2013.
The villa has a built in oven and hob which makes your budget go further as there are many supermarkets in the area where local and international produce is sold.
we made full use of these facilities as well as the tallboy fridge freezer and microwave.
local brewery delivers ice cold beer to your door as well as a wide range of red and white wines.
there is no delivery charge for this service.
they are easily contactable on the inhouse phone which you can also use for ordering tok toks, tuk tuks and to make dinner reservations at any of the many restaurants in el gouna.
a magazine is provided that has all the relevant phone numbers inside.
the villa has two bedrooms.
master bedroom with a double bed and more storage than you will ever need including two bedside tables and light switches located right next to the bed.
bedroom 2 has two single beds that can be pushed together if required and also has lots of storage space
Beds were a decent size and most importantly very clean.
there are ample spare sheets,blankets and pillows should you require.
both bedrooms have air conditioning and are bright,spacious and very clean.
nice Egyptian curtains can be drawn to insure privacy but we never used them.
The main living area/dining area is open plan with air conditioning.
large table with six chairs.
2 single chairs and a 3 seater sofa.
24 inch tv with dvd player.
tv has many channels and its great to flick through them all listening to different languages.
there are about 5 that are english speaking.
there is also a composite input in the tv(red,white,yellow) to plug a games console into.
i used one i bought of ebay for space invaders etc.
the living area has some very nice hanging pictures of the pyramids and general Egyptian life.
the villa also has 2 bathrooms.
both bathrooms have electrical sockets for shavers/hairdryers.
large clean spotlight lit mirrors.
large sink and a walk in shower.
plenty of hot water is available all day via the hot water tanks.
towels of various sizes are provided including large bath towels.
marble type/wood vanity units with more storage and plenty of space for all your essentials.
the owner recently added a wicker sofa and chairs at the front of the property which gives you a view of the mountains in the distance.
beautiful when the sun starts to set.
at the rear of the villa is a circular table and chairs to enjoy the view of the lagoon and the golf course.
cushions on all chairs are provided and made it a very enjoyable time spent out there late evening.
at night the villa has external mood lighting on the swaying palm trees and on the property itself.
twinned with the warm evenings i,d go back to this villa for that alone.
it,s truly the most relaxed i,ve ever felt.
rear garden has a lovely assortment of colorful flowers and some beautiful examples of palm trees.
10 seconds walk out the rear of the property and theirs the pool.
not just any pool but a large fresh water pool.
it,s not heated but then it doesnt have to be.
el gouna enjoys daytime temperatures of around 35 to 40 degrees daily.
so who wants to swim in a hot pool?.
the owners provided two sunbeds and towels to drape on them.
every time we have been to the pool there are only maybe 1 or 2 couples there so you pretty much have the pool to yourself.
if it,s privacy you want then that is easily achieved.
all in all this villa offers everything we was looking for,privacy,cleanliness,location.
everything is literally 2 minutes away on a tok tok or a nice steady 5 minute walk.
i,d recommend this villa to anyone who loves sunshine and comfort.

"Comfortable apartment, great location"
We found the apartment to be a good size and well furnished, overlooking the pool and lagoon. The pool is unheated as in the description but there are heated pools available during the winter months at the Sheraton and Movenpick Hotels and at the Clubhouse, downtown. We personally came for the winter sun which was great after the rain at home!
The apartment appliances were as described with plenty of utensils. The patio off the Dining area was great for breakfasting as it caught the morning sun and gave the best views from the apartment. The furniture was comfortable and English channels were amongst the many available on the TV. The channel variety makes the apartment appealing to all nationalities but I have to say that I didn't go there to watch TV all day!
The two bedrooms are spacious and the one that we used had a really comfortable Kingsize bed and a large dressing mirror with sockets available for the usual hairdriers and straighteners that women can never travel without. The showers in both bathrooms were great with an endless supply of hot water. The aircon units in tha bedrooms can switch between cooling and heating depending upon the time of year, as does the unit in the living area.
The town and restaurants were five minutes away by toc toc (the local taxi service) or a fifteen minute walk.
As with all hot climates take your mozzie plugs and repellants.
This apartment would be great for anyone with mobility problems because everthing is on one level, no steps.
The agent was great, arranged pickup and departure and was there to meet and greet
