Egyptian Experience R31
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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 2006. Our actual apartment was also featured in the "Place In The Sun" magazine September 2011 .
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.

Sharm El Sheikh
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.

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.

"Beautifull beautifull beautifull!!!"
I go on a regulary to Sharm on self catering base and out of experience I can tell this apartment is the most beautifull one ever where I stayed and definitely going back to it on my next visits!!
Everything you need for a self catering stay is available in the apartment. From the smallest fork/knife to the pots and pans ;-)
The only thing left for you to do is go shopping for your groceries in local supermarket and start relaxing!
What was really good as well is the local cell phone! Just buy some credit ( I bought for 25 Eg.Pound in the local Metro supermarket) to tip it up and you can text home for a whole week!
The decoration is very very nice! Especially the bedrooms!
The bathroom very clean with a washing machine.
Airconditioning is top! They're the most silent ones I ever had in local apartments.
Lightning super and 'cause of all the orange coloured notes it makes the apartment very cosy in the evening.
Bring your teacandles to make it even nicer!
Lynne allso left loads of nice adresses to go out for dinner,public beaches ( Pataya was the max for lounging and Shark's Bay for snorkling, tea and for lunch Umbi fish restaurant!) if you like in a basket on the living room table.
And I allmost forgot to mention the bedouin cussians on the terras! A pleasure to sit on,relaxing in the evening gazing at the Egyptian starry sky while drinking tea ;-)
The resort is very calm and staff really helpfull and polite.
And Lynne is the most helpfull person for any questions or needs.
I loved it!
We'll keep in touch ;-)
Thank you for your lovely comments, this is our holiday home too so it is always wonderful to hear that our guests love it as much as we do :)

"Well equipped apartment for a relaxing stay."
An easy 5 min taxi ride from the airport. Great for relaxing by the pool.
Friendly, helpful staff and good taxi service to various beaches.
Nice clean pools and the water temperature was fine for us and our kids to play in and cool off. Two shallow areas in the main pool but the rest is deep (about 1.5m) for young children. We put our 4 year old in a swim aid so they could go in the main area safely.
Do have to get a taxi to everywhere and it is easiest to use the complex service to save a 5 min walk up the dusty track to the main road to catch a local taxi or bus.
We liked Sharks bay for snorkelling with the kids and Aqua Park in Hadaba.
Next to a hotel which has great water slides and you can pay to have an all inclusive day there however you can hear the entertainment between 8.30 & 10.30pm every night from the balcony and it was very repetitive.
Beer delivery was useful!
About 15 minutes taxi to the main going out area Naama Bay for £5(UK).

"Chaleur , Soleil et depaysement assuré dans un appartement tout confort"
De notre séjour nous retiendrons le "farnienté " dans une résidence très bien entretenue. l'appartement est spacieux et bien orienté, très confortable et calme. La piscine est superbe et le personnel charmant, toujours le sourire et le bonjour. Le taxi de la résidence est une bonne solution économique pour visiter les environs. Notre chauffeur très gentil et toujours prêt à nous rendre service. Les bons conseils de Lynne qui est la propriétaire nous ont permis de découvrir les meilleurs endroits et de passer de superbes vacances.Encore Merci

"The perfect gettaway!"
This is the second time we have visited Sharm and stayed in Lynne's lovely apartment in the Egypt Experience resort. It is a wonderful place to stay, we first went in April 2012, again this November and we are booked to go back with our children for May half term.
The main attraction for us is this apartment is brilliant value for money. Lynne is very reasonable with her rates and doesn't charge any more for school holidays.
the apartment is 2 bed with a kitchen, large sitting area and a big balcony with room for a table and chairs, bedouin cushions and a nice wicker sofa chairs set. there is plenty of room for a family and its nice that you can sit on the balcony having a quiet read while the kids watch tv or something in the sitting room. The apartment is very nicely decorated and you really feel like you are in a home from home.
and the best bit????? you are right by an enormous pool with sun loungers and a bar (serves only soft drinks and bar snacks - no booze)
You are a little way out and walking isn't an option so you have to get taxis or the local bus if you want to go anywhere. but its only £3 each way to get a taxi to the nearest town and there are plenty of nice restaurants to eat in.
A taxi to the beach is also easy to arrange and very economical.
This holiday is a bit more hard work than if you just booked into an all inclusive hotel. you have to arrange taxis and go to the supermarket to buy your own food, but i think it is well worth it for the money you save. This May half term would have cost us around £800 each to stay in a hotel we have saved nearly £500 per person staying in this very lovely apartment.
I cannot recommend staying here enough. we have been with our family and have just come back from a quick 5 day romantic holiday for just my husband and I. both have been terrific trips, gorgeous sunshine, a beautiful pool and a wonderful apartment.
Thank you Lynne!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review of your holiday it is really appreciated, glad you had such a great time :)
