“Spectacular stay in Luxor”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Villa Rosamund was the highlight of our stay in Luxor. The accommodation is clean and spacious. I would highly recommend having food prepared by the in-house chef.
Khyry and his team was brilliant in every regard and will not let you down. They will be able to arrange anything and everything for you.
All in all you can't go wrong staying here!

“Highly recommend this Extraordinary Adventure and Comfort”
Reviewed 3 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

A must do!
This was a truly spectacular holiday for our family at Villa Rosamund. The manager Khyry is a local who is extremely knowledgeable, English speaking, very friendly and professional, he helped us and escorted us arranging everything.
He collected us from the airport, and organised the most mouth watering, fresh breakfasts on the rooftop with fabulous delicious dinners every evening after our fun packed day excursions.
The house is a beautiful architectural build which just keeps on giving with beautiful details in all the rooms, staircases and balconies.
The bedrooms are also immaculate, spacious with everything you need and the beds are all extremely comfortable, I loved the fresh white bed linen.
The free wifi is not available in the bedrooms however it works perfectly from the main living room and surrounding spaces.
The dress code is to cover up respectfully I chose loose linen and cotton layers. Be prepared for the change in temperature as the nights can be very cold so do bring warming jumpers and trousers. It is also dusty so pack comfortable shoes.
There is so much to do from visiting the amazing tombs near by including the spectacular Valley of the Kings etc. To local horse and camel riding and incredible hot air balloons.
There are also trips up and down the Nile on a felucca.
Khyry arranged a rather special 3 day Nile cruise trip on a Dahablya which was the most luxurious and relaxing way to travel and take in the spectacular nature and locals living alongside the Nile.
I have tried to include everything but it was overwhelming and I probably missed something out.
I highly recommend this entire experience.

“Wonderful accommodation in an amazing place”
Reviewed 29 December 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My brother and I travelled from Asswan to Cairo, and naturally we stopped in Luxor for a few days. However, our stay was far too short. Villa Rosmund is a beautiful house in a calm area on the west bank and an excellent place to relax – and it looks just like on the pictures. The view from the rooftop is great – over a banana plantation and the Nile, and on the other side the hills with the valleys of the kings and queens. And breakfast on the rooftop was excellent – fresh coffee, juice, fruit salad, good bread, falafel etc and delicious pancakes upon request. The rooms are all spacious, beautifully decorated and equipped with very – or maybe too – comfortable beds and interesting animal or plant shapes created out of towels. The house remained very cool despite the heat outside and we did not even have to use the air-conditioning. Thanks to Khayry, our stay was funny and extremely comfortable as he took us around the village and the sights on the west bank, explained a lot about the attractions, suggested activities such as quad biking, recommended restaurants in the area for dinner, and organised everything else as well.

For people like me who don’t know much about Ancient Egypt, there were plenty of books about Luxor and the individual sights and hieroglyphs and their meanings. The sights on the west bank are relatively close to the house, and for the sights on the east bank we took a boat. Karnak temple is truly amazing, but it might be useful to have a good guide who shows the entire temple – as holds true for all temples and tombs – as well as to take enough water. Unfortunate for the local economy but fortunate for us, there were not as many tourists as usual, so we could really enjoy the sights and did not have to fight or wait anywhere.

Overall, it was an amazing stay and I would definitely and wholeheartedly recommend Villa Rosmund without a second thought! It made the trip fantastic, and I very much hope to return in the future!

“Lovely Villa Topped Off with Rooftop Breakfast”
Reviewed 3 April 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My husband and I had a very good experience at Villa Rosamund, all as advertised. We asked if we could stay there one night before our dahabiya trip on the Dream, and the owner was flexible and gracious enough to let us do that, even though this is typically a weekly rental. This villa would be perfect for multi-generation families or several couples/friends, but it was just us two! Khyrie is the property manager, and couldn't have been more wonderful, answering all our questions, exchanging funds, and acting as a tour guide for the short time we were there. (We tipped him, we think, generously, as this is not part of his job description, and he can't always do this.)

I'm a reader, so I would have liked a night stand next to the bed, with a lamp, but we just pulled up a chair and I read on my back-lit Kindle, sans lamp. I also would have liked twin beds because dear husband is a snorer and a kicker (!), but I survived. Khyrie reminded me I could have gone in another room...I just didn't want to create more clean up for the caretaker.

Now, you should know that the view pictured on TA is not what you see, as you have to access the Villa from the roadway. This is compensated for by the unbelievable view from the roof top, and an incredible breakfast.

We are glad you found your stay in Villa Rosamund such a good experience and really appreciate your comments.

We totally agree that there should be bedside tables and lamps with easily reachable switches. Our local manager is currently rectifying this.

There appears to be a misunderstanding as to your bed. We took your enquiry about the width of the double bed to mean that you wanted one of the the largest ones, which was six feet wide. Had we known you would have preferred separate beds we would have been happy for you to take the twin-bedded room on the ground floor or even separate bedrooms.

Villa Rosamund and the buildings next door in this quiet little street harmonise with each other with their domes and facades. In the last year a new building (over which we have no control) has started to be built. This now partly obscures the aspect seen as you approach Villa Rosamund from the village. When this other building is complete we shall use some new pictures, but for the moment we do believe that the one on the website provides a fair indication of the setting and style of the Villa.

Many thanks again for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.

Best wishes,

James
