G-one is a nicely situated, privately owned ground floor corner apartment and the most frequently booked and re visited, on this very personal resort. We are not located on a hotel complex and therefore never over run by too many people. Choose between FIVE pools: The more private pool right off our gated terrace down 4 steps & you are there, a similar pool to our left but out of immediate sight, the 30m pool with the well run pool snack bar run by Red the Chef & his team serving good snacks, coffee, tea, milk shakes, fresh juices & more all day long from 10.00am – 5.30pm & reasonably priced. To the rear of us, another fantastic pool behind that with walk down steps down in to the water or the new pool with steps down into it to our right. Take a look at our vidoe clip tour of G-one and photo gallery? Of course the photo gallery doesn't do it justice really, why not get in touch and have a chat or book with us and see for yourselves?

13th – 27th Aug 2014
Yep, all back safe and well and back to a busy life at work unfortunately.
Once again we had a fabulous two weeks in Sharm with your apartment as a perfect base. No problems & all on site facilities were fine.
There seemed to be loads going on in the Nabq area which must mean good news for their economy. Also the whole area seemed much busier than we had experienced it before.
I will find some time to post on trip adviser and I'm sorry that I forgot to write in your visitors book.
Will definitely be back so will be in touch when we have some firm plans.
17th - 28th June 2013
Hi Pete we got back safe and well thank you , we had a wonderful time in Sharm El Shiekh. The apartment was perfect for us we enjoyed all those lazy mornings around the pool. It was a beautiful apartment very comfortable we thoroughly enjoyed our time in there ,even got use to how to use a electric cooker was good fun. The staff at the resort were very helpful with any needs we had, in the near future we plan to return sometime as we didn't get to do a Cairo trip, I was looking to put a review on the web page but I wasn't able to do it any information would be good.
Once again thank you for letting us enjoy your apartment
4th - 13th June 2013
Thanks for your email, I should have contacted you on our return. We had an amazing time as always in your lovely apartment. The staff on the resort were as helpful as they always are. We even managed to fly across to the Pyramids this time.
We had a fantastic time and really appreciate using your apartment.
23rd - 30th May 2013
Our time is Egypt was great - though our flight got cancelled on our way back and we had to stay an extra night in a hotel.
The resort was great, the kids loved the choice of pools and the atmosphere was what we wanted.
The apartment was well equipped and found the picnic bag very useful.
Overall brilliant holiday and look forward to going again.
Thanks for all the help
27th April - 4th May 2013
I hope you are both well. We had brilliant holiday and the apartment was great, very comfortable.
But hey we enjoyed ourselves.
Would you be kind and let me know the cost for the first two weeks in December if its free for three adults and a four month old.
30th March - 13th April 2013
Greetings Pete and Greta,
just to say thank you for the nice apartment you rented to us , we had everything we needed, it was really comfortable clean, and spacious.... we had a great holiday, and a wonderful time at the Egyptian experience..
thank you again...
Cosma, Luna & Shtewy.
24th Dec 2012 - 3rd Jan 2013
I am back safe and well. I really enjoyd my staying in Sharm and apartment! I am already planning a new trip to Sharm in the summer when I have my long holiday. My holiday was relaxing, peacefuf and also exciting. I also liked my trip to Santa Catharina. 10 points to "New dawn tours". Exellent guy in the office in Nabq and the guide in the trip was really professional and nice.
14th - 28th Aug 2012
Dear Pete & Greta
Just a quick note to thank you for letting us rent your lovelly apartment again. As last year we have had a fantastic two weeks. Once again thank you and hope to be in touch about staying again.
Nikki & Craig
30th July - 13th Aug 2012
I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful holiday. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves - the fortnight flew by which is always a sign of a great holiday.
We would be very interested in returning to Sharm again next year - hopefully you'll still be renting your apartment then and we can arrange our visit through you.
Thanks again, Luisa
5th - 12th April 2012
We had a very enjoyable stay in your apartment, and would not hesitate in recommending to others. Friends of ours stayed in another apartment and the difference in what you provide, both in terms of equipment within the apartment and advice was significant, with yours the much better equipped and much better advice given re: the area. Really great apartment.
10th - 19th March 2012
Thank you for your mail. Everything was very fine. My father-in-law (who stayed in the apartment) was very happy, as it was in much better condition and much nicer than the one, he stayed in last time we went there.
We had a brilliant holiday. Thank you so much for letting us stay.
24th Jan - 3rd Feb 2012
We had a great time thanks. We found the apartment to be very comfortable and well equipped. The guys at the resort were all extremely friendly and helpful. We would certainly consider returning one day. Thanks for all the information provided. We found it very helpful.
27th Oct - 4th Nov 2011
Hi Pete, How are you?
We had a brilliant time and the apartment was great! Thank you! I think we'll definitely book with you again!
1st - 17th Sept 2011
Well we had a fantastic time again. hired a car this time and got around a little more with a trip up to the Blue Hole in Dahab. Apartment and resort still spot on. When the sun bears down on you there and it's cold & damp back home...well what more can i say. Thanks once again Pete & Greta
Barbara & John
17th - 30th Aug 2011
We had a fantastic holiday thanks. The apartment was just what we wanted and we would like to book again for next year. I will contact you again with details when you get back. We used the on site taxi most of the time for getting around
The enjoyment of sitting on the terrace first thing in the morning in the beautiful sunshine, & the fact that we had that back pool to ourselves for the whole 2 weeks. It was like being in a private villa. I cant believe how quiet it was. Mind you the whole resort seemed quiet, even Naama Bay.
Simon and Sarah next door were brilliant. My husband had an ear infection just before we left (typical) and Simon took him out on a private shore dive which was great. We also booked a trip with Norita, she was lovely.
We did find the phone really useful though, thats a brilliant plus. Last year we used our own and had a £200 phone bill on return. We have left comments in your guest book which I hope others will find useful.
Thanks once again for the use of your lovely apartment and I look forward to staying there next year (and perhaps many years to come)
11th - 28th June 2011
Hi Pete. Just to let you know that we really enjoyed our holiday and the apartment and complex is a great setting. We had a great time and the staff were all pleasant and could not do enough for us. Thanks again for the use of your apartment, we left a good note in the book for you. Take care, Ken.
26th May - 2nd June 2011
Hello Peter, I hope you are ok. Firstly I like to thank you for the rent of your apartment. We had really nice week there. Everything was ok, really thank you. I like to ask you, I see that your apartment is free from July 10-18. We consider to come again, but finally I will know it only at the beginning of the next week. Only I like to tell you this that if still will be free, I would like to rent it. Once more again, thank you.
28th March - 4th April 2011
HI sorry for the delayed response have been busy settling back into the UK. What can I say about Egypt, the weather, the food, the places to see and the things to do. In terms of the apartment I must say it was beautiful and nicer than I had imagined. Our transfers were on time and we came into a very clean apartment. The apartment contained everything we needed. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you.
15th - 24th March 2011
Hi Peter & Greta,
Just got back from your apartment in Sharm El Sheikh. One of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had. Weather fantastic. Could not fault your apatment, loved the new terrace furniture. Would highly recommend it.
Phil,Helen & Lynn.
22nd Feb - 1st March 2011
Dear Pete and Greta,
Hope all is well. Sorry it's taken us so long to email since we've been back, been really busy! Just a message to say thank you very much for letting us rent the apartment, we had a fantastic holiday and were really impressed with the standard of the apartment. The staff were always really helpful and friendly, especially the egyptian experience taxi driver. And your friends Mary and Tom were lovely too.
Missing the hot weather and sunshine we had already! Thank you for all your help before the holiday, it made the whole organization much more relaxing and easy for us.
All the best.
Hannah and Harry
17th - 31st August 2010
We had a great holiday thank you and we enjoyed staying at your apartment. We met some friends of yours while there and it is a really nice complex. Everyone is friendly and I've already recommended it to several people. Thank you from start to finish. All of your pre-holiday information was really useful and so was the information inside the apartment. We didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment but it had everything we needed. Plus the 'tips' were very helpful and we did as advised.
Chris and Beata
25th July - 13th August 10
Hello Pete, Yes, thank you, we had a great holiday. The beaches were nothing less than fabulous. We went to Shark's Bay 4 times and Raz Mohammed National Park and to Terin Island. We didn't see a cloud for 3 weeks. The kids loved the pools at the complex and the staff were very accommodating.
Thank you for your friendly and professional approach and for helping us to organise our holiday.
Best regards, Sonia and family
3rd - 10th July 10
Hi Pete yes we had a great time thanks and the apartment was great.
Wish I was still there :( thank u very much. Kind regards, Carol.
25th June - 2nd July 10
Thanks for the use of the apartment, had a lovely time. Would definitely recommend.
Thanks again for the apartment and all the information, Denice.
8th - 15th June 10
We had a lovely time thank you. I think I was a little too cautious with the a/c use - our bill for the utilities was only 160LE! Thanks again for the use of your apartment. Hope we can visit again sometime. Best regards, Courtney.
2nd - 16th April 10
A very nice complex, all the other guests and owners were very decent people, my kids enjoyed the pool bar food (on a daily basis) and the staff in the pool bar were great! We also had a bbq there one evening which was enjoyable too. Your apartment is in a great secluded spot and the bedrooms were very comfortable! And if you fixed the weather for us then thanks for that as well as it was lovely! Thanks for everything and take care, Paul, Sonia, Ryan & Abbie.
4th - 11th March 10
Hi Pete & Greta
We arrived back last night about midnight. The weather was great, hot, sunny and 30 degrees and we had a great time. The apartment and complex are really nice with everything you need and it was like having your own pool at the rear as we were the only one's using it while we were there and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. The transfers to and from the airport all went OK and following your instructions checking out went smoothly. We went on a couple of trips - did the Grand safari which included the visit to St Catherine's Monastery, Coloured canyon and Dahab which is quite a long day and also did the boat trip to Ras Mohammed.
We went to Sharks Bay beach one day but didn't go to any of the other beaches as preferred to stay by the pool.
We travelled around on the Micro buses into Nabq and Narrma Bay which was OK once we got the hang of negotiating the prices! We eat in The Three Corners hotel in Nabq which was ok once we got in , George looked after us on a table by the pool which was very nice and we also had a good meal in the Peking Restaurant and One Fish. You were right about changing currency when you get there. We think it is an excellent choice for some winter sun, being quiet and having so many pools to choose from and would certainly consider booking again in future to escape from our freezing weather! It was 27 degrees one evening in Narrma Bay and only 1 degree when we returned here last night. Thanks very much for allowing us to use your apartment and we look forward to seeing you soon. Kind regards, Colin & Wendy
11th - 25th February 10
Hi there pete,sorry it has taken me so long to reply to your e mail, yes and thanks we had a lovely time in your apartment. Sorry you're not available for two weeks in june, thats when were next back ,who knows what the future holds eh, anyway hope you are ok and if your available sometime in october i'll be back to bug you then, now no laughing at me on the horse it was a spur of the moment thing on Mostafa's farm. Thanks a lot, Avis,Lamba,Aneesha and Mostafa
2nd - 9th January 10
Actually, Sophea and I wanted to thank you and give you a big hug from here in Khartoum for the wonderful time we had in your beautiful apartment. It was just right and we thoroughly enjoyed in what we found to be a home away from home! We thought you have furnished your apartment with great care and taste and as you have said in your folder, you have indeed tried to stay in and see if it makes your stay homely. We even managed to watch a very nice movie from your collection, I do not remember the title, but about this guy who buys this otter and takes it out to the wilderness and understands how the environment is being disturbed by Man. Asha, our four year old started crying loudly when the Otter was killed and was inconsolable!
Yes, we did go out and did some snorkeling and the aqua park, where the father was enjoying more than the kids (having lost on those luxuries during childhood!) We also took time to just relax and swim in the pool. We did use the kitchen a lot as we found coming back and cooking our own meal a lot more relaxing. This was our first ever family trip exclusively for our own holiday. We have always been alternating or dividing our holiday time between India and Cambodia and most of the time, especially in India, is spent catching up with siblings, parents and doing all the family protocols and it is only now we discovered how enjoyable our holidays could be! Thanks again for contributing to our happiness!
So Peter, my heartfelt thanks to you for lending the apartment and we will talk to our friends if any one is interested and will get them in touch with you.
3rd - 19th Sept 09
Well, here we are again. Things just get better. Pete & Greta seem to improve the apartment and what is provided every year. The egyptian mobile phone proved very useful & the upgraded welcome folder with everything you need in it to ease you in proved perfect. The resident safe is a useful addition along with being able to plug our ipod straight in to their system - home from home but with the sunshine every day!!
Many thanks, Barbara & John
25th Aug - 1st Sept 09
First of all a very big apology for not contacting you sooner I can't believe that we've already been back for a month! We really did enjoy our stay enormously. The apartment, the complex and Egypt were all wonderful. we managed to do everything we wanted to including a little diving, a speedboat to Tiran Island (which was quite a bumpy ride!) and a sunrise trip to the desert in the buggies. The weather was amazing and we wish we could still enjoy that now. Used the buses to get around which worked really well especially when the locals realised we knew the prices. We look at the photos from our holiday and long to be back.
Thank you once again for the use of your apartment, I am sure this is not the last you will hear from us.
Maria & Paul
18th June - 2nd July 09
Hi Pete and Greta,

We made loads of friends especially Sam n Mohamed waiters in Onfish in La Strada, we were really sad to be coming home but looking forward to returning. Air con was fab.
Thanks again for a lovely time.

The Red Sea and Sinai region
The Red Sea Riviera is the nearest tropical sea to Europe and is the coastline mainly on the east side of the beautiful Sinai peninsular, stretching from the far north of the Gulf of Aqaba down to the very tip past Sharm el Sheikh at Ras Mohammed. This coastline takes in some beautiful beaches, coral, marine life, Bedouin settlements, villages, towns and some National Parks, unlike we know them in England. The National Parks such as Ras Gallum, Nabq, Tiran and Sanafir protectorates and Ras Mohammed are protected areas of natural coral and superb marine life. This area was once mainly desert bridging the gap from the sea to the magnificent Sinai mountains.
The terrain from the Red Sea varies between towns, villages, desert & spectacular mountain scenery especially beautiful as dusk comes along and the sun sets.
Travelling from the far north to the south, Taba (Arabic: طابا), is a small Egyptian village near the northern tip of the Gulf of Aqaba, the northernmost resort of Egypt's Red Sea Riviera. Past the Fjord (a breathtaking view) Nuweiba is reached followed by Dahab, the site of the famous Blue Hole and a bustling town. Passing the Dahab caves, mangroves and shrimp farms eventually Nabq is reached. By Nabq, the beautiful Sharks Bay presents itself with spectacular views of Tiran Island, some believe the biblical location where the Red Sea was parted, then on to Naama Bay, Sharm Old Town, El Hadaba and finally to Ras Mohammed National Park.
A visit to St Katherine's Monastery, a place of pilgrimage, at the foot of Mount Sinai where, from the burning bush, God spoke to Moses is very worthwhile.
Or what about a pilgrimage to the summit of Mount Sinai, the mountain of the Ten Commandments, maybe overnight to catch the sunrise in the morning?
Snorkelling trips out to coral reefs by boat can be arranged along with diving courses, a popular sport here.
The all year round sunshine makes this a perfect place to visit any time of the year. A light breeze is often present on hot days taking away any intense heat.
ON OUR DOORSTEP:
Nabq is right on our doorstep. A short walk towards the sea reveals views to Tiran Island and a number of private beaches, kept to a good standard with use of amenities available for the low cost of a brolly, beds and towels. We have a special deal with Sea Club, Sharks Bay and Regency where for £2.50 per day, we can deliver you, use all the facilities on offer including sunbeds & towels, snorkelling etc and then collect you at the end of the day. Kite surfing in Nabq is amazing with about 2 square km of shallow flat water with sandy bottom...this is the perfect place for beginners, improvers & experts alike.
Several water parks are available for kids within easy reach of our apartment. They are usually open to the public at a reasonable charge and are very good, & feature some of the most impressive Aqua Parks, the Aqua Bast with slides, pools for adults and children, wave pool and many more facilities
Tennis courts are available nearby at several resorts.
Several places to do your supply shopping are available within easy reach by microbus in Nabq at La Strada
FOR THE SNORKELLERS:
Snorkel to your heart's content anywhere along the red sea coast. The coral and marine life under the water is absolutely stunning. Even just wading in the shallows with a simple mask looking under reveals a whole new world. if the sea is not breaking to rough on the coral, swim over to the deep with a snorkel, mask & fins and experience something totally different.
Snorkelling trips can be organised from G-one to many places including Tiran Island, where you will have an enjoyable boat trip, lunch on board and and several opportunities to snorkel in several places.
FOR THE DIVERS AMONGST YOU:
We can organise diving trips to suit varying needs through our resident friends next door, Sarah & Simon who are offering preferential rates, please ask for details.
Opposite us, in the Straits of Tiran, several Coral reefs can be seen and visited between the beaches & Tiran Island namely Jackson, Gordon, Woodhouse & Thomas.
On Gordon Reef can be seen quite prominently, the shipwreck of Loullia, a Russion barge.
The shipwreck Million Hope can easily be dived from here, visible from the Nabq coastline on the edge of the shore coral where it goes deep.
The shipwrecks Carina, Dunraven, Kingston & Thistlegorm are all accessible from this area allbeit some drive or boat trip to get to the dive sites.
A WRECK OF A DIFFERENT KIND:
Just the other side of Tiran Island on Saudi Arabia soil is the wreck of a PBY-5/BuNo. 48397 sea plane run on to the beach reef, while under machine-gun fire from Bedouins on Mar. 22, 1960, and was abandoned with 300 bullet holes in the fuselage. This can be seen from some boat trips.
FOR YOU KITE SURFERS:
The new Kitesurfing resort is amazing with about 2 square km of shallow flat water with sandy bottom...this is the perfect place for beginners, improvers and experienced alike. The wind is cross on shore and super consistent making for one of the most ideal and safest learner spots in the world! The best wind is between January and May with a steady 20 knots blowing most morning between 0800 and 1400. kitesurfing courses and equipment rentals are available at this best kitesurfing spot.
The main bay offers flat shallow water, perfect for beginners and improvers or the more advanced riders looking for super easy conditions to practice new tricks.
A short distance to the North of the centre, accessible from land or by riding upwind is a great WAVE SPOT in a bay with waves rolling in to a shore break. Maybe not a real wave spot, but very different from what you are used to in Egypt, and a nice playground for the advanced rider.
Naama Bay is a 15 minute taxi or microbus ride away where further restaurants, bars, beaches and shops can be found along with numerous dive centres & beach resorts. This is the modern hub of tourism with loads to do along with a great feel and atmosphere everywhere you go.
Sharm el Sheikh resort and old market is only a 20 minute taxi or microbus ride away, where you can experience the Egyptian ways of trading!! But very cheap (negotiate)!!
In the Sinai Mountains you can experience jeep and bus safaris to St Catherines Monastary, overnight trips to Mount Moses to catch the sunrise, Coloured Canyon.
Bedouin Dinners, Camel and Quad bike trips. Boat trips are available for snorkelling to Tiran Island or Ras Mohammed. Private boats can be hired.
All these excursions can be organised from G-one.
FOR YOU GOLFERS:
Only 15 minutes drive away, there is a par 72 PGA championship golf course (6021 m) opened in 1997 designed by American architect Sansford & Associates. There are 4 sets of tees available to satisfy all levels of golfers as well as a double - ended driving range, 2 large putting greens and a 3 hole short game area.
Sea fishing trips from a boat can be organised locally. Our admin office will advise at any time.

"a very nice holiday, in a lovely apartment."
The apartment was very nice, it had everything we needed from towels to cookery utensils, tv, dvd etc... the pool was right outside our balcony, it felt like it was our private pool! altough there were building works right opposite us , it wasn't noisy, only a bit dusty..... everything was good really, I would say the only inconvenient if you don't have a car is the road ... there is no asphalt and is really dusty, also it'is quite a distance to reach the main rd. where you can get a taxi, but if you're young and you love to walk that shouldn't be a problem.

"Comfortable and well equipped apartment"
We stayed at G-One appartment for 10 days in January with our 1 year old daughter and had a lovely relaxing holiday. The design of the appartment and equipment available meant we could spend our evenings having dinner on the terrace or watching a DVD, whilst our daughter slept in her own room. There are decent beaches and restaurants (at hotels) within walking distance, or you can get a taxi to nice beaches and Naama Bay (large choice of bars and restaurants) for around £5. The guys running the resort were lovely, and nothing was too much trouble. Slight annoyances - the swimming pools are not heated so were too cold in January for my daughter to use. Building work next to the complex was noisy at times. Overall, we would certainly return to G-One.

"Fantastic Apartment in the Sun!"
I stayed with 3 friends in the apartment for 8 nights in November 2011 and we had a brilliant time! The apartment is spacious, nicely furnished and was much better than staying in a hotel room as it gives more space and flexibility. The complex itself where the apartment is situated is very attractive and has 5 swimming pools to choose from! The staff at the complex were very helpful and we would definitely book the apartment again for another holiday.

"Highly Recommeded - Great Holiday"
This apartment is lovely and on a lovely complex with amazing views from the roof terrace. It was really quiet so no hassle for sun beds or space. We had the rear pool to ourselves for 2 weeks but families with younger children seemed to prefer the front. Pool bar sells decent snacks at good value and you can get almost anything else you need delivered (just look in the welcome pack for details). 5 minute bus ride from Nabq bay with plenty of restaurants (El Mesrien and Union Jacks were our favourite for food and value) and good evenings entertainment (especially at El Hyatt, great shops too with no hassle). Only went to Naama Bay to catch a boat but is only 15 mins away from there. All taxi prices pretty much the same no matter who you use but make sure you agree the price you want to pay first. On site taxi will take you anywhere and the staff are great. If you want a day on the beach go to Sharks Bay (£3 each from the complex including a sun bed). The snorkling here is fantastic and the food is excellent value for money. If you fancy going to Soho square make sure you take plenty of money. Beautiful place with nice shops but food very expensive and not much choice. All in all this was a fantastic holiday in a great apartment with everything we needed just a short bus or taxi ride away (no stress) and we have already made enquiries to go back again next year. The owners are really easy to deal with.

"Lovely for a family"
We really enjoyed our time at G!, Egyptian Experience. Great apartment with everything you could want and the complex itself was great, with a variety of pools to enjoy. The staff were really friendly and helpful and would do anything for you. Location is a bit further away from town that we would have liked but not too much of a problem as there was always the complex taxi available. Just a couple of idea's. Mosquito screens on the windows and doors would have been greatly beneficial as bugs are pretty prominent and abundant, most of the other apartments do have them. Do not book the resort taxi to collect you from the airport. Really is a rip-off. If you know where you are going, get a taxi from the airport. Complex taxi cost 150Egyptian pounds for a 7 or 8 minute ride and you can get the taxi it take you into downtown Sharm, (passing the airport on the way) for 60 Egyptian Pounds..... Really check the electricity meter and water meters when you move in. We took for granted that the readings were correct and truthful only to be hit with an electric and water bill for 200 US Dollars upon departure... For a two week stay that was definitely wrong... Apart from that, would definitely go back and use G1 without any hesitation.

"wonderful apartment set in perfect grounds"
When we arrived at the apartment we were very surprised at how spacious it was, it was also very nicely decorated, it had everything we needed like home from home. The balcony was a lovely place to chill out in the evenings with views on to the pool. We also ordered a welcome pack for when we arrived so we had the essentials even though there are shops close by which we ventured to. Reception was very helpful ordering taxis for us etc they also organised a dive trip for us which was the highlight of the holiday, the sealife was truly amazing. We would definately return time and time again.
