During a recent visit to Egypt, in fact my first time there, I was fortunate to choose No 3 Villa Gardenia as the rental accommodation for myself and my friend who accompanied me on this visit. This apartment, which appears to have been recently very tastefully redecorated, is located in a quiet area that is in close proximity to the Airport in Hurghada, a major advantage for tourists travelling from Western Europe. Just a ten minute walk form the apartment, there is a small supermarket which stocks all of the essential items someone in self catering would require and the prices are very reasonable. This is a one bedroom apartment with a sofa bed in the living quarters, the kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances and the bathroom has a particularly good shower. The TV and all appliances worked as required. The weather was very pleasant during our stay, with bright sunshine and temperatures in the range 25 C to 30 C, however, there was a nice breeze from the Red Sea that meant it was never uncomfortably hot or humid. We discovered a beach within walking distance of the apartment, and it was excellent for wither sunbathing or swimming in the sea which was very clean and safe.
The Manager of the apartment introduced himself as Ali, a native of the area, who speaks fluent English. He is also a Tour Guide and he can organize boat trips on the Red Sea, or trips to places of interest. Ali organised a three day trip to Cairo for us, this proved very interesting and enjoyable with the highlight being a visit to the Pyramids at Giza.
A short taxi drive away is the City of Hurghada with shops, restaurants etc. to cater for all tastes. We would highly recommend this property and indeed this area to other tourists who wish to have an enjoyable, relaxing holiday in a very pleasant environment.
This is a small quiet compound and the apartment is newly decorated and fully equipped with modern appliances. The location is ideal and we could walk to the local beach everyday. It was great to be only five mins from the airport too when we were tired after our flight. The manager Ali really looked after us - he even picked us up at the airport! He arranged an overnight trip to Cairo and took us see the pyramids at the Cairo museum which was a highlight for us! His English is excellent and he works as a tour guide too so he knew all the best spots to bring us to. The apartment is also near two excellent supermarkets Carefour and Spinneys in senzo mall. All in all, we had great relaxing holiday, especially as this was our first trip to Egypt - highly recommend staying here and definitely plan on going back again.
