New Property/Excellent Location/Lots of Amenities, Restaurants, Entertainment
- english, arabic
We are an Arab American family who had the privilege of traveling to over 30 countries and living abroad. Three years ago I put my 20 years corporate career on hold to enjoy the better things in life (i.e. family, give back activities, paragliding off a cliff, etc). My wife continues to hold a professional career in teaching and has a passion for healthy cuisine. Homeaway is a natural extension to our love for meeting new people and sharing a bit of our world. We get what people want out of a business or holiday break. Our home is new, spacious and central to many local attractions / amenities. We are happy to make recommendations for places to visit and to experience local cuisine. At the same time, we very much respect guest privacy in case you prefer to spend time doing your own thing.

Wonderful studio with Excellent owner!
Rented the studio for two months and it was an absolute pleasure staying at this place. The studio is wonderfully furnished and at a great location in New Cairo. Away from the noise, but close to several good restaurants and shopping areas. Cairo Festival Mall is within a few minute's drive and has all the brand name stores as well as groceries. The attractions are also a short drive away. The best part of the stay was the wonderful owner (Sami) and his family. Sami went out of his way to ensure that my stay was comfortable and was always only a phone call away. Not only did he ensure a comfortable stay but was also a wealth of information about Cairo and was always ready to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this studio for short or long stay.
It really does not get any better than this in terms of location! Whether here on business or leisure, New Cairo has become a highly sought after destination by visitors and expatriates alike.
The studio conveniently places guests 45 minutes away from Giza Pyramids, Cairo Museum, Khan el Khalili, Maadi, Zamalek. Although a walking distance from everything you need, a $3 Uber ride gets you just about anywhere within New Cairo.
It takes less than five minutes to get to Cairo Festival City (CFC) and DownTown, providing guests access to a wide variety of dining, cafes and entertainment to choose from.
CFC hosts a Cineplex, IKEA, a gym, a large number of retail stores and upscale boutiques. 'The Village' overlooks the Dancing Fountain, an amphitheater and houses 50 restaurants guaranteed to get your taste buds going. If you are traveling with a child, Kidzania is a sure 'heaven on earth' experience!
DownTown is a pedestrian area with more cafes and restaurants to choose from (i.e. Starbucks, Mori Sushi, Coldstone creamery). It is a great spot to sit back, catch some sun, try a cup of 'turkish coffee' or a hubbly-bubbly. Paul's Bakery is a must stop for breakfast or brunch. Carrefour Express (supermarket) and a 24-hours pharmacy are around the corner for your everyday needs.
If you happen to be visiting one of the universities in the area, it is a 10 to 15 minute car ride to American University in Cairo (AUC), German University in Cairo (GUC) or Future University. The same goes for American International School (AIS), Modern English School (MES), Lycée International Balzac, New Cairo British International School (NCBIS).
For those looking to venture further out, the closest beach is about an hour and a half drive to Ain el Sokhna (Red Sea).
