About the neighbourhood
The Magawish area is a residential Suburb with a local shop and a local pharmacy both just a 10 minute walk away. There is a G.P.clinic nearby. The suburb is just about 500m by 500m and is pleasant to walk about as the residents are very welcoming. A further 500m brings you to the sea side and the Red Sea We are very flexible on check in and out times ,,if your flight is late evening on check out date ,,we allow you stay in the apartment until you go to the airport no extra charge to our guests Any special requests please message me and I’ll contact Ali the manager to sort for you It’s our aim to make your stay enjoyable and stress free.
Getting around
Getting into the centre of Hurghada will take about 15 minutes by car. While there is a supermarket - Carrefoure just about a 30 minute walk away (5 minutes by car), there is a very large European style shopping centre - The Senzo Mall- 3.5 kilometres further on, on the main Safaga dual carriageway. Two excellent supermarkets are quite close Ragabs and Bestways ,,both beside each other in El kawser
