A perfect place for private sunbathing or relaxing with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the mountains in the evening. The large shared pool has a swim up bar and plenty of sunbathing areas with sun loungers & parasols. There are shops and restaurants on site with more a short walk away. There is access to a shared beach with a small daily charge for use of sunbeds & parasols. The beach offers safe bathing and has jetties out to a drop off for great snorkelling and diving.
We are flexible with arrival / departure days, length of stay and there are no problems with late check out (to fit in with other arrivals).
The Red Sea Riviera/Sinai region
This is an ideal base for lazing by the pool or on the beach, snorkeling or scuba diving in the Red Sea, riding horses, camels or 4x4s in the desert or playing a round of golf. A short flight takes you to Cairo to see the Pyramids & the Sphinx, Luxor for the Valley of the Kings & Karnack Temple or Petra in Jordan for the Rose City where Indiana Jones was filmed. It really is possible to do as little or as much as you like.
You have year round sunshine & next to no rainfall. The beachs are great and the snorkeling & scuba diving is second to none. Even for non swimmers you can walk to the end of a jetty over the sea & see wonderful, brightly cloloured fish without even getting your feet wet!
Sharm El Sheikh
The property is well situated with shops, bars and restarants nearby. There is a great supermarket "Ragabs" a short walk away where you can stock up and they'll even deliver your shopping for you & "Metro" a little further. As well as restaurant / bar on site there are plenty of restaurants in Nabq Bay within a short walk. There is theJasmine Centre area with local restaurants and show. In the “Al Khan” area of Nabq Bay there is the Peking Restaurant & Onions Restaurant both of which are very good (Onions – Lobster Thermidor for about £15 – small lobster but great value!) and just past this is La Strada Mall. At Al Khan / La Strada there are a selection of local bars & restaurants as well as well know international brands such as McDonalds, KFC, TGI Friday, Burger King & Starbucks. The Hard Rock Cafe is now also open. Peking, Onions & many of these restaurants do take away / home delivery & there are a variety of menus with phone numbers in the apartment.
It is worth a taxi ride to Naama Bay for a lively night out with an abundance of bars, restaurants & clubs. It is also worth a taxi ride to Soho Square where there is a good selection of upmarket bars, restaurants & shops. There's even an ice rink & ice bar!

"Easy, convenient, and what a pool!"
The apartment owner made the whole process really easy and stress free, was quick to communicate when booking, answered all our questions and was really informative. They gave us a guest information guide packed with information and recommendations from supermarkets to restaurants to beaches and excursions, which was really useful in planning our week to make sure we made the most of our week. They also organised portable wifi for us for just £25 for the week, and an English contact to meet and greet us at the airport, and drop us back for our flight home at the end of the week. That was great as she settled us into the apartment and was available for any questions throughout our stay. The apartment itself is roomy, comfortable, has use of a great (huge) quiet pool which is cleaned every day. There is also 2 balconies and a large private roof terrace if you can bear the heat! The owners have tried to think of everything you might want, so there. Is a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, good selection of books, scrabble board, washing machine and microwave, and very efficient air conditioning system in both the main living area and the bedroom.
Thanks for your review & we are pleased you liked the apartment & appreciated the information provided. We tried to think of all of the things we've learnt about the area over the last few years & the things that we would like to know as new guests. For some people it is their first experience outside the confines of an all inclusive hotel & they are amazed at how much there is to see & do & the variety of places to eat & drink once they venture out. We're glad you enjoyed your holiday & hope to welcome you back again soon.

"Perfect apartment, great location"
This apartment has everything you need, fully fitted kitchen. Amazing roof terrace for sunbathing and lovely quiet pool right outside the door. Within walking distance of everywhere in the Nabq area.… More
Thanks for your review. I'm really pleased you liked the apartment & in particular the roof terrace & large pool which never gets crowded. I'm pleased you found everything in easy walking distance which we see as a great benefit compared to some apartment complexes which are very isolated. We hope that you return to stay at our apartment again soon.

Cozy apartment, nicely located in Nabq Bay.The owner was very helpful all the way and I was met at the airport by Amy, thank you :-).The apartment was nice and clean and close to several supermarkets,… More
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I'm really pleased you enjoyed your stay & had everything that you needed in & around the apartment. We like the location & the fact everything is a short walk away compared to some apartment complexes which are "in the middle of nowhere!". We look forward to welcoming you back in the not too distant future.

"Good value apartment"
This self catering apartment is good value. It is one-bedroomed with a separate lounge/kitchen with TV which includes some US/UK channels with news and films - no mainstream UK channels. We hired portable WIFI (£3/day) which was 100% reliable all arranged by Lee who owns the apartment. We were picked up from the airport as arranged and all went smoothly. There is a private roof terrace which I imagine is boiling in Summer but there will be more of a breeze up there. In January you will be warmer by the pool.
Some people would be terrified at the thought of self-catering in Sharm, but the only hassle is from the shopkeepers who will literally cross the road to get to you, so just hail one of the local taxis or better still the little blue private minibuses for 1 egyptian pound (10p) to get to where you are going. Just shout STOP when you want to get off. Its an experience but funny. The locals working in bars are very friendly and we spent most evenings in the Union Jack pub just outside the complex. We also eat there during the day and several evenings. We also went to the Three Crowns which has a more varied menu (the Vindaloo was superb as were the fillet steaks) and twice went to Peking restaurant down the road. The pool at the apartment is huge, very clean, but very cold in January. An English couple we met said its nice and warm by mid-April. If you want peace and quiet during the day then this is the place for you - there is literally nobody around the huge pool at all. The weather was superb - 30 centigrade every day but you lose the sun by 4.30 pm, my advice would be to get up earlier than normal on holiday - Egypt needs to be 4 hours ahead of GMT not 2 hours in my opinion. When they say 'partly cloudy' on the forecast, that equates to aeroplane trails in the sky - the weather is far more reliable than say Tenerife at this time of year.
Sharm is struggling at the mo as people are not travelling to Egypt, and the vast majority who do travel never leave their All-inc hotels which is a shame, but there is absolutely no trouble here at all. The area needs some TLC as a whole, apart from Soho Square which is worth a visit, but the weather makes up for that. Oh and the snorkelling is amazing, I cannot do it justice with words, just go and do it!!
I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday & our apartment, thanks for taking the time to do a review. The great thing about Sharm is you are pretty much guaranteed good weather all year round, albeit the pool & sea are colder at the start of the year compared to later in the year. You are right it is a shame that people are not travelling to Sharm as much recently & when they do go they don't venture out of their all inclusive hotels to see the relaxed, friendly & safe place that it is with a good selection of places to eat & drink. The food in restaurants is much better than some of the bland all inclusive hotel food on offer! Sharm is a world away from any trouble in other parts of Egypt & does just have a relaxed holiday feel about it. There are very few places such a short flight away at a reasonable price where you can get excellent snorkelling & diving & guaranteed sun! We hope you'll come back & stay with us again.

"Great apartment in a great location"
We spent a very enjoyable month at this apartment. It was very clean and had a very comprehensive inventory, the owner obviously puts a lot of effort into making sure his guests are well looked after. There was a guest folder with lots of helpful information and a book with previous guests comments and tips. The location in Nabq, Sharm is perfect with plenty of restaurants and bars and a brilliant supermarket right on the doorstep. The pool area is kept immaculate and we were able to use the facilities of the hotel next door where they had great pool slides. We were also allowed to use the wifi free. The TV had several English speaking film channels. The only problem we had was the time went too fast!
Thanks for your review & I'm glad you enjoyed your time at our apartment over Christmas & New Year, even if the month went too fast! As you know from the e-mails we exchanged & our local contact replacing some worn items during your stay, we want to ensure that you have everything you could need in the apartment & it is in perfect working order. I'm pleased you liked the location & facilities & look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

"Fantastic apartment - great 3 week stay"
This apartment is truly very good value and I recommend it to everybody who wants to spend a nice, quiet, relaxing holiday in Sharm.I stayed here for three weeks (end of Oct- Nov 2013) as a solo femal… More
There's really not much more I can add to that, other than I'm glad you had such a great time & enjoyed it so much! It is nice to know that our apartment compares favourably to others that you've stayed in previously, I sometimes look at the other apartments for rent & wonder what makes people choose one over another. I always think our location, the private roof terrace & large pool are good selling points & I try to respond as quickly & accurately as possible to all enquiries, but it is great to hear your views as somebody who has stayed in the area before. However the best recommendation of all, is that you've booked again already to come back, so we look forward to welcoming you again.

"A great 5 days of winter sun"
Spent 5 days here in November and had a really good time. Apartment was bright, clean and tidy with everything you would hope to find (including a new flat screen LCD with HDMI). Roof terrace was a sunbathers paradise and had a nice breeze and comfy sun loungers.
Complex is large with an amazing pool which wasnt too cold either which is the norm for most pools in Sharm in November. We seemed to be the only ones in the pool most of the time which was another plus point (low numbers due to unrest but visitor numbers are picking up now).
Union Jack bar is at the complex entrance as are a few mini-markets. Food was mediocre at best (all meat overcooked) but very good prices, Also has live sky sports.
Location is within walking distance of nightlife / restaurants but you may need a taxi home due to the large food portions!
Local beach is about a 10 minute walk (although took us 30 as we didnt know which way to go initially).
We would definitely rent the apartment again if we visit this part of Sharm again.
Thanks for your review. I'm really glad you liked the apartment & location. The private roof terrace & large pool seem to be everyone's favourite things - they are certainly ours! The fact that you have lots of choices of places to go in walking distance is also a plus. Our e-mails about TV / DVD / Satellite etc before your visit were also useful & I'm glad the new set up met your needs - thanks for your advice on this! Thanks again for taking the time to review the property & we look forward to welcoming you back in the future

"Excellent apartment for rent"
First I would like to thank Lee and Brian for all their help.
Communication with Lee is very easy; whatever information I needed before booking, he responded very quickly and precisely.
The booking process is easy and the confirmation came immediately.
Lee also organized my pick up at the airport by the keyholder Brian, a very friendly and kind person I already knew from a previous stay.
The check-in at the reception was very quick and without hassle.
The apartment is very large for a one bed room apartement and perfectly equipped. There are a lot of towels. No need to bring your own.
It is located at a convenient 5 minute walking distance to the center of Nabq, where a lot of restaurants offer food all day long. Or you can take just outside the gate one of the minibuses to Naama or to the Old Market.
From the private roof terrace you have a beautiful 360 degree view of the mountains, the sea, the pool and the gardens.
The pool is enourmous, perfect for swimming and it is situated in the beautiful garden. The whole environment is very green and quiet.
This apartment is truly a very good value and I recomment it to everybody who wants to spend a nice, quiet, relaxing vacation time in Sharm.
Thanks for such a good review. We try to make things as easy as possible for anybody enquiring & booking & I always put myself in the guest's situation that I know I'd want answers quickly & for everything to be as smooth as possible from booking to arriving, the stay itself & checking out. I'm so pleased you like the apartment & location, having stayed at other places in Sharm, I did think you'd like the location & that fact that everything is in walking distance. I'm pleased you enjoyed the roof terrace & large pool which are also our favourite things! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay & hope to welcome you back again one day soon.

"Very nice apartment with everything you need to feel like home"
Had a lovely week staying in this apartment it has everything you need to make it feel like home... Enjoyed the roof terrace, the TV had very good channels especially good choice of movies some Arabic some English, the washing machine was handy and straight forward to use. The bed was very comfy and air con was a god send as got very hot at times. Shower nice just make sure u have enough money on the water meter as the toilet dosnt flush if it runs out!
The actual apartment was very nice couldn't fault it at all! The only negative which isn't lees fault is I found the pool area very dull and boring absolutely nothing going on at all and some people might like that but I'm a people person like to meet and chat with new people and apart from the egyptian residents and workers there was no one! However after 2 days I did come across a lady who recommended I walk over to the sharm bride hotel which is literally round the front of the entrance to the apartment and I asked a life guard if I could sunbathe there and it was ok to do that just couldn't use the all inclusive but I could still use the swim up bar I just paid £10 and got more than my monies worth in drinks :)
The pool was much nicer there was music entertainment and a few english family's we got to know but like I said some people like peace and quiet and some like that holiday feeling so here you get best of both worlds!
The location was ok and apart from a few shops supermarket and pharmacy we preferred to jump on a bus for 3 mins and for 2 Egyptian pounds (20p) up to the main nabq bay where you'll find some lovely restaurants and bars inc McDonald's, KFC (which delivered to our apartment) TGI'S and hard rock cafe but the Union Jack bar just outside sharm bride did lovely food and u get Free wi fi, overall if we wanted an apartment in sharm again we would 100% stay here again I would also like to add lee the owner and Brian who's based in Egypt were both very lovely and very helpful throughout the whole process thankyou so much and look forward to getting in touch to book again soon!
Thank you for the review, I'm so pleased you had a great time & liked the apartment. The pool area was probably a little quieter than normal as I know it is quiet in general in Sharm at the moment. However the pool area is never crowded & is quiet & peaceful which suits a lot of people but not everyone. I'm pleased that you liked the pool at the Sharm Bride hotel which is livelier. As you said you have the best of both worlds as you can use the hotel pool if you want more going on or use our pool which is quieter & never crowded. It is worth noting that apartment residents can use the hotel pool with a small fee for drinks etc but the hotel guests are not allowed in the apartment complex / pool area which is strictly for people staying in the apartment. Thanks very much for your comments, we try to make life easy as it is your holiday so it should be stress free! I try to provide as much information as I can based on my experience of many visits & thinking of all of the things I wish I knew the first time I went, also with Brian locally there is always somebody available for any help & advice. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Firstly I must apologise to Lee, this review is well over due. We have now stayed at the apartment twice, first time over the Christmas and New Year 2012 and again end of June / July 2013 both occasions for two weeks. The apartment itself has everything you need to make the most out of your holiday. It is clean, well-furnished and equipped with everything you will need. It has a lovely big sun terrace that is also well furnished for you to relax and soak up the sun. The apartment is perfectly located for the beach, and the shops, restaurants and bars, but also where you can just sit back and relax to take in the views of the mountains and sea. All the shops, bars and restaurants that have already been mentioned in previous reviews are all highly recommended. The complex itself has a lovely big pool that is lovely and warm in the summer but quite chilly in the winter. The staff on the complex itself are pleasant and helpful a simple hello and thank you that's all you need and they will go out of their way to help you as and when needed.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone, you will not be disappointed. The booking process is very easy, the communication from the start was quick and easy, Lee answer's all your questions no matter how small. I would also recommend letting Lee arrange your transfer's to and from apartment, you walk out and there is Brian waiting for you, no waiting around, then straight on to the apartment 10 minutes and your there. Brian will also show you all you need to know and he is only a call/ text away if you need him.
Thank you very much Lee for the use of your apartment again, we will be booking again for sure
Thanks for your review for your 2 visits. Returning guests are the best recommendation we can have to say we're doing something right & I'm pleased to say this year we have had a lot of returning guests. I'm so pleased you like the apartment, location & everything there is locally. Having been in summer & winter you've seen Sharm at both ends of the spectrum & I'm so pleased you'll be returning again. It makes a great difference to us to have Brian locally who can help all of our guests from arrival to depature & so they feel there is somebody to talk to if they need anything. Thanks again
