Guestbook comments from the owner
"We loved the house and especially the El Gezirah, the village where it is located on West Bank. We appreciated being able to walk around un-hassled, to buy food or sit in a cafe and get to know some of the locals who we walked past several times a day. Everybody without exception was friendly and welcoming. Khyry was incredibly helpful, from the minute he picked us up at the airport throughout the week. Madi (housekeeper) and Said (guard) also added tremendously to the overall success of our week. Our three children (17,16,12) thought it was one of the best holidays ever!
We woke early and saw the sun rising over the skyline of felucca masts, minarets and palm trees. One night the children slept under the stars on the roof terrace - great fun apart from the mosquitos! The roof terrace was our main sitting room early and late in the day, and we enjoyed breakfast up there. We took up Madi's offer of breakfast on the roof terrace most mornings. Often saw hot air balloons drifting overhead.
The Festival of Eid, four-day holiday, occured during our week, but did not affect us at all.
The house was more than comfortable. Beautifully and thoughtfully designed (mainly by Khyry!), we loved all the domes, the views, and the coolest place to sit was in the courtyard.
We used both the El Gezirah and Nile hotel swimming pools for dipping in and cooling off. The food in both hotels was fine. Also loved the restaurant Memnon, where Khyry took us.
Would recommend the villa whole-heartedly. Khyry made the holiday the success it was, and Christopher's notes before we went helped us make the most of the week. We would all love to go back one day soon!"

We live in South West London but have been involved with the Luxor West Bank for the last 10 years, working with our local partner and manager, Khyry.
For independent travellers, we believe we offer a wonderfully unique experience of the Luxor area and provide a great deal more than any packaged holiday for a very reasonable price.
