This was our second stay at this Villa and once again it was wonderful everything we wanted had a great time roll on next September.
Family of five (2 x adults, 1 x 15, 1 x 14, 1 x 12). Perfect for reading by and playing in the pool with easy access by taxi or Tuk Tuk to the Marina or Downtown. Pool cleaned and maintained every day, plenty of shade and air conditioning for a good sleep. Weekly change of towels and bed sheets. Transfers were in a mini bus and faultless. Wifi good. Temp was always around 40 but with a breeze majority of the time. My two sons achieved PADI Open Water through Emperor/Blue Brothers Diving (two companies, same building).
Good communication with the owners. No security concerns within resort or airport.
We had a great family holiday.
We booked at a very short notice. Phil was very flexible and cooperative. The property was well maintained and the pool was spotlessly clean and warm!!!
Thank you Phil and Lesley for your hospitality
We have stayed in Elgouna twice a year for the last 8 years as on our first visit we fell in love with the area and the people.
This villa was superb, comfy, homely and well maintained. The bonus of the heated pool was great and was used daily.
I would rate the villa at 12 out of 10, booking and correspondence was excellent, just need to sort dates/flights to book our next stay :))
Many thanks Phil and Lesley
Would like to thank Phil and Lesley King and management team for our lovely stay at this villa. Airport transfers were arranged and went so smooth. The villa is really nice and everything you could ask for. A good sized pool and loads of space to relax. We arranged for some food items etc on arrival and the management team did not let us down. The lady who met us at the villa was really nice and nothing was to much trouble, thankyou. We have been to El Gouna several times but this was our best vacation there and a most pleasant one months stay.We have booked the villa again for next year and we cant wait. The villa is in a lovely area getting about is so easy, many places to eat so much choice. Many thanks again.
We had a fantastic stay at this gorgeous villa in El Gouna, that's ideally placed between the Downtown and Marina areas.
The villa itself is large and spacious, and perfectly clean and comes with all the equipment you could want - from pots and pans should you eat in, to a bookcase full of reading material for those lazy days by the pool.
We also had our transfers arranged through the management company, with everything working like clockwork (always good to minimise any potential stresses whilst on holiday!).
El Gouna itself is also brilliant. We did a couple of activities in the days, but mainly spent our time relaxing, eating and drinking. If you do want to get out and about, I'd recommend the sunset quad bikes and the day snorkeling trip (all the info you need is provided in a pack from the hosts).
All in all, couldn't recommend this place any more!
El Gouna, “a world apart”, is the natural result of the creative diversity of a local community of entrepreneurs, artists, and environmentalists who made El Gouna their home. Modern arabesque architecture and unique interior design transport you to another time and space. The various activities and entertainment options, world-class cuisines and constant sunshine, make El Gouna the Red Sea's premier leisure destination. From the villa you can easily access the numerous amenities El Gouna has to offer; great shopping, health treatments, an unbelievable selection of restaurants, clubs, pubs, fabulous sailboats, immaculate beaches, Red Sea diving and snorkelling, world class kite-surfing and uninhabited islands. There is a regular shuttle bus service, tok-toks and taxis making car hire unnecessary. El Gouna is a complete holiday destination offering all the services required for a hassle-free vacation, including a hospital, supermarkets and shops. And not forgetting year round sunshine!
Other Activities: World class kite-surfing, several dive schools, desert quad-biking, Cable Park, Oasis night with Bedouin.
