Two bedroomed top floor apartment on a small private complex in Nabq Bay area of Sharm El Sheikh. 700 metres from the beach and with amazing views to the sea and mountains of the Sinai desert from the roof terrace. In an up and coming area away from the hustle and bustle of Na ama Bay yet close enough to all amenities.
Complex has been featured on Real Estate TV ' The next big thing ' and was winner of the CNBC best new development in Egypt. Our actual apartment has also been featured in a full page story in the well known "Place In The Sun" magazine .
Our apartment and the self catering option is perfect for anyone who wants to escape from the boredom and repetition of a holiday in an all inclusive hotel. Stay with us and enjoy the freedom to experience all that Sharm has to offer. Eat somewhere different every night or chose to stay home and enjoy a relaxing meal on the balcony. You decide! Especially suitable for families or groups of friends as the extra space and facilities of the 2 bedroomed apartment mean you have so much more versatility than an impersonal hotel room.
Fantastic for divers as we have stunning coral reefs to expore right on our doorstep.
We are also only a short drive away from the best beaches in the area for Kite Surfing.

About this location
The Red Sea and Sinai region
365 days of sunshine and amazing scenery.Temperatures from 20 degrees in the winter up to 50 in the height of summer. An all year round holiday destination with almost zero rainfall. We have been at all times of the year and have a young son and know first hand what its like traveling with children, so if in doubt please ask for details of the weather when you wish to travel or any other questions you may have and we will be happy to advise you.
Sharm is a mecca for diving and snorkelling but with so much more to offer than the usual beach holiday, a mixture of culture and relaxation making for a memorable stay . With the red sea to one side and the mountains of the Sinai desert on the other the apartment is in a truly beautiful setting.
There is no end to the places to visit and things to do ,or you could just do nothing and relax surrounded by some of the most amazing scenery in the world .
There is something to suit everyone and everything from paint balling to quad biking through the desert,camel and horse riding to visits to St Catherines Monastery A definite must is a boat trip to either the train straights or Ras Mohammed,a visit to one of the water parks is great fun for everyone and the wonders of the pyramids and valley of the kings are only a 50 minute flight away.
Kite surfing and diving tuition is available and customers have exclusive rates available for dive courses from our resident PADI dive instructors.
There is even an ice skating rink and an ice bar open in Soho Square, an exclusive entertainment area where you have to dress for dinner! The open air stage here hosts acts from around the world. Boney M have put in an appearance ,outdoor glass squash courts were set up to showcase the egyptian squash championships ,the world belly dancing championships were held here and Ali Campbell from UB40 and the band Steps, Peter Andre and Kim Wild were also here just to give you an idea of the diversity of the entertainment available. The newly opened Crystal Lounge has live music every evening normally tribute acts but excellent singers.
The main draw to the Sinai peninsula is the sea life and the Sharm area has some of the best unspoilt coral reefs in the world. A day at your choice of beach,one of many open to you, can be followed by a relaxing evening in one of the many quality bars and restaurants in the Nabq area or just a 20 minute taxi ride takes you to the bustle of Na ama Bay or Old Market.
There is something to suit all tastes and pockets from well known brands like KFC, Hard Rock cafe and TGI Fridays to Peking Chinese, On Fish, Oriental cafe or Abu El Sid for authentic egyptian or even Little Buddha sushi just to mention a few.
Not forgetting all the cafes where you can drink a glass of mint tea and smoke a shisha pipe. Alcohol is widely available and where it is not served they have no objection to bringing your own.
If you want to have an evening at home the largest supermarket in the Sharm area is in Nabq itself, only a few minutes drive from the apartment and can provide everything from fresh meat and fish, deli meats and ready meals to fresh fruit and veg and branded products. There is even a delivery service for a small charge of 40 pence. There are also a variety of food outlets who deliver meals ready prepared to your door...well you are on holiday!!
There is a guide book and folder full of info we have collected on our travels around the area in the apartment to guide you to making the most of your stay with us.
All photos on this site, including the underwater ones, have been taken by us,and have been copied in the past by other advertisers, but these are genuine and I can guarantee that what you see, really is what you get. The apartment is not a business venture its our holiday home too so we know the area and visit regularly to keep the apartment up to our high standards and to check out what is happening in and around Sharm, any questions please dont hesitate to ask.

"A beautiful, friendly and relaxing complex"
The property was beautiful, everything that you needed was at hand. There was detailed information about the location and activities around the resort. The resort had it's own private taxi, which was very reasonably priced! It was very convenient especially when travelling by yourself.
The pool was perfect and the pool bar served very nice meals.
Looking forward to my next visit, thank you very much!
