Make a holiday rental home or villa on the Red Sea, Egypt your home away from home

Holidays on the Red Sea Coast of Egypt are a heady mix of palm fringed beaches, romantic desert landscapes and staggeringly clear, azure seas, which teem with exotic fish and remarkable coral gardens. The marine life is simply astonishing on Red Sea holidays, with dolphin, turtle and vast shoals of tropical fish providing moments of marvel for the many Red Sea diving expeditions and those exploring from above the shimmering waters on a Red Sea sailing holiday. Anyone looking for blazing sunshine, perfect beaches and sensational wildlife, Red Sea holidays are your calling.

Things to do on the Red Sea Coast, Egypt

The Red Sea wildlife is incredible. Migratory birds flock into the Red Sea on the same thermal winds that make Red Sea sailing holidays such a thrill, and when it comes to scuba diving, the Red Sea offers some of the world’s finest. There are some 800 species of fish to be seen on a Red Sea diving holiday, including shark, surgeon fish, stone fish and vast crab. Whether you are an experienced diver or are hoping to learn to dive during your Red Sea holiday, the warm waters are hugely welcoming, and there are always plenty of dive shops, equipment rental centres and Red Sea diving schools to get the very best from your Red Sea holiday.

The glorious year round climate also helps in making Red Sea sailing holidays some of the most enjoyable in the world. The mighty historic monuments that surround the coast range from almost every civilisation from the Pharaonic to Coptic, Islamic to Greco-Roman. Sailing along the Nile is also an amazing experience, which feels like sailing along a time-line of history, with traditional lifestyles getting further removed from our Western lifestyles as you float serenely along the river.

Of course, when you go on holiday on the Red Sea, Egypt, you never have to go diving or sailing to have an unforgettable break. The beaches are sensational, the nightlife exciting and the coastal resorts luxurious. If you manage to drag yourself from the beaches at any point during your Red Sea holiday, the famous sites of the Pyramids are well within reach too.

                                                                          5 of 5
                                                                          Villa Saluma is as nice as the pictures depict. We had a wonderful holiday from the moment we arrived to the time we left. We arranged transfers through the villa owner Ed and were met at the airport with no problem. We have visited El Gouna many times, staying in various villas in both West Golf and South Marina, and villa Saluma is right up there with the best. West Golf and South Marina both have plusses and minuses. South Marina is well placed for walking to both downtown and the marina, but has no views, and most villas are overlooked by apartments. West Golf is a little further out and outside of walking distance to downtown and the marina for us. Villa Saluma makes up for this with lagoons front and rear and a beautidul view over the golf course. The fact it is a little further out really isn't a problem as it is very easy to phone either a taxi or tuk-tuk from the vilaa. Just a point of note for parties of four (as we were). With the recent rise in the fare for tuk-tuks it is now half the price for 4 people by taxi (20LE) as opposed to 40LE for two tuk-tuks. The villa is well appointed with all you need to make your stay relaxing. The pool is excellent, clean and well maintained, something that has sometimes been a problem at some villas we have stayed at. Our favourite spot, especially in the evenings, was the thatched pergola by the pool. After dining we would return to villa, grab drinks, and chill under the pergola. We spent some very late nights under there, including sitting up to watch the sunrise. Ed (and Luke) corresponded with us very well and frequently, from our initial enquiry through to booking and departure. The local agent Nasser (and Emad) are excellent and can't do enough for you. We had an issue with the telephone and wifi during the first week but this was quickly resolved by Emad. If it's your first visit to El Gouna you will find lots of nice restaurants both downtown and at the marina. Two that we particularly enjoyed on this visit were The Orient in lower downtown, and Breeze in the marina. If you go to Breeze on a Sunday it is best to phone and reserve a table as it is Karaoke night and can get busy, but it's great fun. I perhaps shouldn't say this in case Ed reads it, but Villa Saluma is excellent value for money given the pricing. We would certainly book again.

The property is in a very nice , quiet area and is fully equipped and very comfortable . The outside area is particularly nice, overlooking the marina. It is very easy to get around , with access to a phone in the apartment so you can book a taxi or tuk tuk to Downtown where there are many nice restaurants. Abu Tig Marina is a 10 minute walk and also has many nice restaurants and bars. Hope to be back soon to El Gouna and this lovely apartment.

                                                                          5 of 5
                                                                          Property is clean and has everything you require for your stay, only 5 minutes away from supermarket and 10 minutes away from the main bar and cafe's. Everyone is really friendly and approachable in the apartment block and Liz and her partner Hossan are on hand for any problems or general advice. I had no problems during my month long stay and Hossam picked me up from the airport and dropped me back. I will certainly be returning and staying in this apartment again.
