About the property

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom.

A spacious, modern two bedroom apartment sleeping 4 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a queen size bed plus one twin bedroom. Fully equipped kitchen, quiet air conditioning, complementary Wifi, private terrace area with table and chairs for al fresco dining, large oasis style garden with BBQ. Comfy sun loungers and a large outdoor Jacuzzi are perfect for relaxation.

The apartment is in a peaceful retreat in a great location. Only a 3 minute walk from the beautiful sandy beach and main windsurfing and kitesurfing lagoon (Medina area). The English owners Toby and Fi live next door and offer European standards, local advice and information. Supermarket and off license opposite so stocking up is easy.

A complementary starter pack is included in the apartment when you arrive (including tea, coffee, water, milk, bread, eggs, jam, and butter). Clean sheets and towels will be changed weekly or mid stay if you are coming for 10 or 11 nights.

We can also do a quick drive around town (at a time suitable for you), to point out the main places of interest, such as the best restaurants, German bakery and good shops to buy groceries and meat if you wish to cook?

The restaurants are fabulous and it is very cheap to eat out if you do not wish to cook (Steak, fish, Thai, Indian, Italian, Chinese, Sushi, Korean) and lovely local places too serving dips and hot bread with local specialities such as kofta (meat balls), fish and meat. A few places also offer home delivery.

A short walk away are great places to have breakfast or lunch on the sandy beach.

We can also organise transfers from the airport to Dahab with a friend in an air-conditioned vehicle. If coming by bus we can collect you from the Dahab bus station (complimentary). If you need windsurfing, kitesurfing kit or lessons, dive centre recommendations or snorkel trips, evenings into the Mountain for dinner and star gazing - we can organise all of these things.

About Fiona and Toby Gibson

We came to Dahab in 2002, mainly to windsurf and do some diving. In 2006 we had the opportunity to return here to work, and fell in love with the place, the people and the atmosphere. There is something very special about Dahab which seems to draw people back. When we were away, Dahab was always in the back of our minds, mainly due to the amazing turquoise warm water, the incredible watersports and chilled Dahab vibe.

The conditions for windsurfing and kitesurfing are second to none with incredible flat water, perfect for all levels and also a wave area. All year round sunshine and warm water are only a short flight away. There are so many things to do in the area so if you are traveling with non watersports friends or family they will still have a superb time here too. The beach and Lagoon Villa's garden is sheltered from the wind. The locals are really friendly and many people return to Dahab year after year, and most ask how they can live here also!

We have great local knowledge to ensure that you get the most out of your holiday in Dahab. We both windsurf, kitesurf and dive so can give local advice about the best spots and we love eating so there is a guide to our favourite restaurants, so you can arrive and discover the best bits very quickly. We can do a drive around town pointing out places to buy groceries / things for the BBQ and deliver them back to your apartment.

Since 1996 we have worked in the holiday industry overseas so you can be assured your trip will be well organised, so you can spend more time relaxing and enjoying yourself.

Why Fiona and Toby Gibson chose Dahab

The apartment is located in a really lovely part of Dahab, 3 minutes walk from the best sandy beach.

The area is clean and safe, quiet and not smelly, compared with other parts of Dahab! The apartment also has fresh water for showering rather than salty water. Professionals who work on the city council and chief of Police live in the neighbourhood, so we always have lots of water, clean streets and good internet!

What makes this apartment unique

The Jacuzzi pool is amazing in the summer. A great place to sit with a drink or with the family.

The garden is also very unique in the desert. A place for relaxation with a good book.
