“Dahab's Beach Retreat put a smile on your face!”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

My girlfriend and I found The Beach Retreat in Dahab via Airbnb and directly after sending an emial for information, the attentive owner Fiona send us a very warm reply. It felt like our vacation already had begun!

Dahab is only one hour away from the (extremely efficient) airport in Sharm El Sheik and Fiona offered via the email to send a taxi. In a short hour we travelled to Dahab, a nice,cosy place.

The local people are so nice and friendly to foreigner and we both felt very safe and very secure in Dahab, not only at day-time, also at night-time, walking back to our beautifull Beach retreat.

The foto's on the airbnb-site are WYSIWYG, or "what you see is what you get" ... The House is beautifully decorated by Fiona and her team, who all speak Enlish very well. (btw ... Fiona is native-speaker English). There are towels for the shower, towels for the beach, the kitchen is fully equipped and the fridge is brand-new. The light-plan is fantastic, as romatic as you can get!

Via mail she already asked us a very difficult question: would you like wine or cold beer on arrival :-)

The Beach Retreat is a very romatic and quiet place, and dierctly around the corner are some convenient shops, like a supermarket and a grocery, bread, fruit, and even a beer and wine shop.

All the restaurants (all sorts, from bedouin-like tents to nice and very good restaurants) are whitin walking distance and offer tasty food, not only Egyptian, also European food. Some serve alcohol, others allow you to bring-your-own.

It was our first time to Dahab and we already send Fiona an e-mail, telling her that we will come back to this beautifull place in Dahab!

“Excellent in every aspect”
Reviewed April 18, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

loved every bit in our stay, everything was thoughtfully organized and with an extra pampering touch. It's a house 5 meters away from the sea but with most of the privileges of a hotel. I will consider it my home in Dahab, actually my young kid was calling it our home on the sea :)

Liked best: Everything was really perfect
Liked least: Can't think of anything other than that there were lots of stray dogs and cats on the beach, nothing that they can do about though

I had an AWESOME time staying here. I meant to do a whole bunch of day trips, but I couldn't leave the house because it was so comfortable and beautiful. I looked out to an amazing view everyday, went for a swim, bought local food, grilled and ate outside, and then relaxed under the stars. It was so lovely. The cost for the the week was VERY reasonable. It worked out to about $60/CAD/night, which was more than hotels in the area, but less than other rentals AND you get the privacy & freedom that you don't get at hotels. It was totally WORTH it.

The staff are so hospitable. They helped me move in, find/get necessities at local prices, organize whatever I needed, and then they called every other day to make sure I was okay and that I had everything I needed. It was super easy to manage living there alone; I felt so safe, and quite honestly, I didn't want to leave. 1 week was not nearly enough. 2 would have worked better for all that I wanted to see and do.

I wanna go back for my June break, but I see it has already been booked! I'm not surprised. Better act fast if you want to stay in this little slice of heaven :)

“The perfect retreat in Dahab.”
Reviewed March 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We recently stayed in The Beach Retreat for the first time and we loved every second of it. The house is beautiful with such unique and wonderful wooden furnishings (handmade by Essam), we absolutely loved the style of the décor. The beach retreat had everything you would need, including a bath, and the garden was lovely to sit and relax in!

Location wise we couldn't have hoped for better! It's located in Assala, just two minutes away from the market square which is great to pick up bits from the supermarkets, local shops or to get a croissant from the local bakery in the morning! Just a short walk along the beach and you get to the coolest cafes, bars and restaurants where you could easily base yourself and spend your whole day just relaxing. If you want to get anywhere further, such as the Lagoona, Three Pools or the Blue Hole, Fiona gives you a phone with a local taxi number on who is very reasonable, we really enjoyed seeing Dahab from the back of his pick up. There's so much to see and do in Dahab, the snorkelling was incredible and we enjoyed camel rides, quadbiking, the glass bottomed boat and many more trips and activities!

One of the best things about staying here is Fiona and her team - Essam, Aziza Noraah and Aisha, and Omar. They are all so helpful and lovely, and really went out of their way for us, the trip wouldn't have been the same without them!

Overall we had a fantastic trip, Dahab felt safer than anywhere in England, and we are already looking forward to planning our next trip here, we wouldn't stay anywhere else other than The Beach Retreat!

We had a amazing stay at the beach retreat, we have been there twice already, and we will go there again. The house is great, with a big garden. It's really private, but the housekeeper is just a phonecall away if you need anything. The beach in front of the house is nice, you can go snorkeling straight away. Shops and restaurants are at a walking distance and the people are really nice. If you look for a private beatiful place to go to, this is the place to be!!
