“"Heaven on Earth', or should I say, "Heaven in Egypt"!” I stayed at Villa Bahri for 4 weeks over Christmas 2012. The owners were extremely helpful, in fact, nothing was too much trouble for them. They recommended places to eat, organised taxis and a boat trip for us, and directed us to the best places to buy jewellery, papyrus pictures and other souvenirs. The villa is clean and spacious and very nicely decorated in traditional Egyptian style. It was really useful having constant internet access. The garden is beautiful, and I could have spent more time in it had there not been so many wonderful things to do. There are several different seating areas, depending on how much sun you prefer. Eating breakfast on the balcony every morning is one of my treasured memories.
The surrounding area teems with interesting places: Egyptian restaurants, archeological sites, boat trips on the Nile, museums...and the Valley of the Kings is just down the road. The local Egyptian people were friendly and welcoming and always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. The West Bank is much quieter and more rural than the city of Luxor, which was nice to visit, but I loved coming 'home' across the river in the evening to the peaceful setting of banana fields and palm trees.
I would definitely stay at Villa Bahri again and highly recommend it.
“Absolutely Fabulous” Edward and Freda made our week long stay so special from start to finish that it is difficult to imagine getting better service in any 5 star hotel.The apartment is just perfectly decorated and provides all you would need.They made us feel at home and welcomed us into 'their Luxor'so much so that it became 'Our Luxor' too. Nothing was too much and we are so very grateful for all those early morning breakfasts that got us on our way each day.Thanks for all the information and showing us where everything is and all the local tips that made the holiday so memorable for us. Thanks Freda for washing our clothes and all the other little touches.
We had wanted to stay in an apartment whilst in Egypt so we could experience the local way of life and would thoroughly recommend 'Our Luxor' as Edward and Freda make you feel right at home and help you gain that experience,we were part of Luxor life for one memorable week.
“Need to Chill Out? This is The Place” Just returned from Egyptian Experience Apt S1. From the minute I decided to book to returning home Carol was excellent. This is the first time I have ever been self catering in Sharm and I must say it was lovely. The Apartment has everything you need just like being at home. I did something I don't do at home and that's sit and watch dvd and chillout. Would I go the Apartment again? Absolutaley!!!
Thank you Carol for letting me stay in your home.
“Fabulous Holiday... and can't wait to return!” Back again to this amazing apartment - we stayed in September last year and it was a joy to return! The apartment was even better than we remembered and had a fabulous time. Can't thank Eric and Gill enough for making this such a homely and welcoming place to spend our holiday. It has everything you'd need for a more than comfortable stay and we can't fault the location. We're very relaxed and didn't do many excursions / trips so really utilised the pools on site, the beach for snokelling and the few relaxed bar / restaurants in Sharks Bay. We did go on a trip over to Tiran Island organised at the Oasis beach; we went early evening at 6ish and saw some amazing dolphins so would highly recommend this! The guys working here were really helpful and knowledgable too! Since our last visit there's a new supermarket which has opened which was really excellent and not far away so made everything very easy for us... the notes from the owners before we went with updated information was especially handy, so thank you! We can't wait to come back to this amazing spot!
“Lovely place to stay” Having just spent my second stay at this apartment I can fully recommend it. The apartment is in a lovely complex and within easy reach of all ammenities in Nabq bay, yet quiet enough to just relax,
The apartment is so lovely its like home from home and a very helpful owner who ensure every is ready for my stay, she is very very helpful in answering any question you may have before the trip.
Really recommend this place and will be definately be going back to saty here
“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.
“If Carlesberg did villas....!” Having stayed at hotels in Sharm, we decided we would like the privacy of a villa this time. What a great decision we made!
Although there were only two of us, the villa easily caters for larger groups - without tripping over each other! It is very spacious and has all mod cons in the middle of the desert....air con in every room, a fully stocked kitchen with every utensil you can think of and a large swimming pool - cleaned daily!
Excellent security, especially for femaie travellers or those with young children.
There is a great entertainment system with thousands of preloaded movies plus music piped throughout the villa and even out by the pool.
The owners of this villa, Donna and Ray, have obviously put a lot of thought into making this their (and your) home from home.
Located very centrally to all amenities, the house is literally just across the road from the beach. The airport is just a 10 minute drive away but as the flight path DOES NOT go overhead. No waving to the pilot from here!!
Don't even think about going anywhere else on your next trip - book Villa Sharm!
