From the moment I made my inquiry Jean treated me like a family member.
Airport service came with a smile! Quiet location, beautifully furnished! If you want a free, easy and relaxed holiday then this apartment is for you. The 'Paradise Village' supermarket just around the corner and an Italian pizzeria to the back, there is also a pool there if you want to use it.
Situated at the Intercontinental area, the area has a wide selection of eating and dining places to meet all types of culinary.
The Senzo Mall is well worth a visit as it has a huge Spinney's Hypermarket and various chain store shops as well as a cinema and food halls
There is a bus shuttle service costing 5 Egyptian pounds return (operated by Senzo Mall) with air conditioning that runs past the apartment and goes between the Old Town and Senzo Mall.
My sincere thanks to John, Margaret & Said (our taxi driver) 'The Jenger Team' I've called them ;-)
To Jean and Gerry thank you for the memories
Many thanks for taking the time to submit a review. It is very much appreciated and helpful for holiday makers considering accommodation in Hurghada. I will pass on your kind words to Margaret, John and Said, the Jenger team as you have named them. As you know they do try their best to make sure everything is perfect for guests and it is always nice to hear from guests of their experience. The tips for guests on whats in the area is always welcomed and is particularly helpful for travellers who don't know Hurghada. Thanks to you and your sister also for being ideal guests and the Jenger team will all look forward to welcoming you back in the future. Kind regards Jean

"Perfect - better than expected"
Having had previous bad experiences with arriving at rented accommodate and find it dirty and in need of cleaning - I was delighted to find Jean's place clean, tidy and with lots of little extras… More
Thanks Marie. Margaret, my local agent takes pride in the apartment and always does her best to ensure everything is as it should be for guests arriving. Good to hear the mubai is still as good. It is our favourite Indian resturant and look forward to going there in the next few weeks when we come out for a holiday ourselves. Havent saw our new worktops and new cooker yet and cant wait to get back out to our home in the sun. You were a model guest and look forward to welcoming you in the future.

"Home from home"
This is a spacious apartment that is furnished and maintained to a high standard, Jean and Gerry have added many 'little' extras which makes all the difference. We enjoyed two great weeks and I can highly recommend the Heaven restaurant on the Marina and the all day boat trip available from The Hilton.
I would not hesitate to return and would recommend this apartment, a warm welcome awaits you from Margaret who also supplied a 'welcome pack'.
Thanks ever so much for your positive comments and helpful information for future guests. Heaven is one of my favourite resturants and I always go when I am in hurghada and it never fails to please. I havent tried the boat trip from the Hilton but will give that a try on my next visit. I look forward to welcoming you as a guest in the not to distant future.

"Excellent home from home apartments"
I stayed here for 2 weeks in December and was amazed at how much it was like home from home. From the moment I was met at the airport to the minute I was taken back to the airport everything was strai… More
Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review and for your positive comments. Our local agents Margaret and John do their utmost to ensure guests are made welcome and will be delighted to know this is recognised. I will let them know.
I too prefer the old vic beach and Gerry, (my other half)always likes to get a massage while he is there as he says the massages are better (and a fraction of the price)than the 5* hotels. It would be a pleasure to have you back as a guest. I have just replaced the marble in the kitchen with new shiny granite worktops and replaced the gas cooker with an electric one with a ceramic hob. I have also fitted a bigger sink as always felt the one that was there was a bit small. I think you will like it.

"Perfect place away from the city and the stress"
The flat is exactly as described. It is absolutely perfect; everything you need is there. The pools are small, but very nice. During our stay, nobody used them, so we had them all for ourselves :)
The small supermarket next to the flat is useful, although be careful when you shop there, once, one of the employee tried to overcharge me.
This is the perfect place if you're looking for a quiet place away from the city. If you wanna enjoy the beach, you can use one of the hotel nearby (from 50egp a day), or you can take a local mini bus to the Old Vic Beach (1,5egp for the bus, 25egp for the beach).
The "public beach" is very small, with pebbles, not very clean (plastic bottles floating on the shore) and boats tied up on it. I wouldn't recommend it.
On a final note, Jean, Margaret and John were extremely helpful and friendly. If I ever go back to Hurghada, I won't look for another place to stay :)
Thanks for taking the time to write a review, the comments of which will be very helpful for future guests. I am delighted that you were pleased with the accommodation and our service and would be very happy to welcome you as guest in future. Thanks also for the advice re the hotel beach, that is good to know and I will def partake of that in my next trip.

Lovely apartment, it contains everything you could wish for home from home.
The complex contains a little supermarket for everyday things and also an Italian restaurant if you want to eat out but not venture very far. The apartment is central about 10 minutes drive from Sekala and Marina. If you want to explore hire a car as we did, the Red Sea is beautiful and we managed to discover so many different places all within reach of the apartment. Thankyou Jean for allowing us to stay in your home, we had a fantastic time.
Thanks ever so much for your positive comments and the useful advice for future guests who may be hesitant about hiring a car. We havent hired one ourselves but may now definately consider that when we are next in Hurghada. I look forward to welcoming you as a guest when you return in the future.

"FANTASTIC APARTMENT, HOME FROM HOME"
We had a fantastic holiday for my wifes birthday, Jean is wonderful and there is nothing that she wont try and accomodate for you. Margaret and John in Egypt are also equally accomodating. The apartment is very spacious and only a short distance from the hustle and bustle. Evenings were a pleasure by the swimming pool. Jean has really gone out of her way to make you feel at home on holiday and 5 stars to her. Am already in the process of buying my own apartment in Hurghada as loved the place so much, especially the clubs - Little Buddha and White are a must if you like partying.
Thanks ever so much for your positive comments. I do my best to make sure guests and prospective guests are given as much information as possible to help them enjoy their vacation and it is pleasing to hear that it is appreciated. I will pass on your positive comments to our local agents (and good friends)Margaret and John. I wish you well in your search for a property to purchase and hope to meet you some time in the future when we are both out enjoying our respective holiday homes in the glorious Hurghada sunshine.

"It made a beautiful holiday absolutely wonderful."
From my first enquiry to returning home this rental has been outstanding. Jean & Gerry treated us like family and the apartment really is a home from home fit for family members. It is spotless, beautifully furnished and in a quiet area. It was that good that we are going to rent long term in the same complex with a view to purchasing.
Thanks Gary, We are so pleased you liked our holiday home and that you had a wonderful holiday. Really looking forward to meeting you and Ella when we are next in Hurghada and hopefully share a glass of wine in the sun.

we stayed at jenger in Dec 2011 and loved everything about the property.
the apartment is very clean , spacious and has every mod con you could possibly want.
The owners Gerry and Jean were fantastice to deal with and the apartment manager Jane could not have done any more to make our stay better.
Infact we still rave about this fantastic property and on showing pictures to friends they cannot believe the standard of this property.
Thanks ever so much for your very positive comments. It is always gratifying to hear that the apartment met guests expectations and that they were looked after by our local agent. We would be delighted to welcome you back to our holiday home at any time in the future.
