Delightful !

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have stayed at Villa Tunis and were very impressed with the accomodations. It was extremely clean and fully stocked. The pool and backyard gardens were beautifully landscaped. The Manager, Gamal, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. It will be the place to stay when we return to Ft. Lauderdale !

Gamel was such a friendly person to deal with. He was there to greet us and show us around. The apartment was very cozy and the bed was comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. Ernest and Gamel even left a bottle of wine for us. What a lovely place and great location. My husband and I will stay here again next year. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We rented all five apartments over the Christmas week. The property was beautiful and well maintained. The location was excellent: Las Olas and the Riverwalk 5 minutes away, the beach a 10 minute drive. There were multiple restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The pool was somewhat small, but the kids loved it nonetheless. The management was quickly and competently responsive to our needs. I highly recommend staying at Villa Tunis.

Very nice retreat!

My wife and I were conducting family business in the area. Villa Tunis provided a very clean, comfortable and quiet retreat. Gamal was great to work with. We didn't arrive until after midnight, but he was on site to greet us and to show us through the apartment. Thanks again!

About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, we lived in Egypt for nearly 20 years. In fact, the idea of Villa Tunis comes from the rural village south of Cairo where I have a villa. Pottery and other Egyptian handicrafts come from village artisans close to our villa.

These experiences bring an international flavor to Villa Tunis as well as an understanding of the excitement of traveling to a new location and exploring all that the setting has to offer.

Villa Tunis is a Florida limited liability company licensed to provide vacation and extended stay rentals.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

While at the beaches, do not forget to visit the Bonnet House and gardens located on 900 Birch Road just off A1A. Check on the internet for hours and days of operation as they change from time-to-time.

Several water taxis ply the various canals that make Ft. Lauderdale the Venice of South Florida. The closest station is located east of Galleria Mall at 2670 E Sunrise Blvd. Walk through the lobby the hotel and the water taxi station No. 9 is located on the canal (the hotel management will help you find the taxi station).
