About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, I lived in Egypt for nearly 20 years. In fact, the idea of Villa Tunis comes from the rural village south of Cairo where I have a villa. Pottery and other Egyptian handicrafts come from village artisans close to our villa.

These experiences bring an international flavor to Villa Tunis as well as an understanding of the excitement of traveling to a new location and exploring all that the setting has to offer.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

The property was in tip top shape and the apartment was everything it said it was and more, we had everything we needed. The property manager, Gamal, was great he made sure our stay was awesome took care of anything that needed to be done. He gave us hints and directions on places to go and do. This place is impeccably clean, nice quite location, and the pool and grill area were beautiful. All I can say is that when we return to Florida this will be our location. Thanks for everything Ernest and Gamal. Already looking forward to our next trip!!!

Lovely apartment in terrific neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and his mother and I visited Fort Lauderdale during the weeks of Feb.12-27 and we were lucky to find this lovely apartment. We received a warm welcome from both Ernest and Gamal, the property manager, and were given a comprehensive tour of the property and apartment. The apartment contained everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was kitted out with all of the necessary utensils and cookware, and since we love to cook and eat in on vacation, this was very helpful, as was the use of the grill on the patio. Although we spent a lot of our time out golfing (there are courses all over the area within a half hour drive), it was a joy to spend some down time out by the pool. Ernest and Gamal did such a nice job making the pool area attractive, comfortable, and private. It was a special place to catch some sun or have a glass of wine in the afternoon. As to the location of the apartment, it couldn't have been more perfect. The beach was a mere 10-15 minute ride, and Las Olas boulevard was about 4 minutes away for shopping and dining. We only wish we could have brought our bikes because biking around the sweet neighborhood of Victoria Park would have been neat. Overall, a fantastic find! Many thanks to Ernest and Gamal for the hospitality.

Villa Tunis was a wonderful place to stay! Our apartment was spacious, clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. Very close to an excellent park, short distances to stores for food, multiple excellent restaurants, and only a short trip to beautiful beaches.

Ernest and Gamel were wonderful hosts, very attentive, friendly and kind.

Definitely hope to stay here again!

We rented this home for a week in December,. Plenty of room for 4 adults.What a wonderful home in Victoria Park! Great location and a very quiet neighborhood. Lots of friendly people walking around. Just a few blocks from the park. Less than 5 min drive to Galleria mall, great restaurants and the water taxi (which takes you anywhere you would want to go by boat) in Florida style. Las Olas Blvd. is just a short drive to lots of restaurants, bars and shops. The villa was very clean and well maintained. The beautiful patio overlooking the heated pool and landscaping in back yard was a delight to sit with a glass of wine, listen to music and enjoy the beautiful weather. Ernest and Gamal were wonderful to work with, great customer service. Followed up with us to see if we were comfortable. Anything we needed he was there to assist us immediately.The home had every item you would ever need and more down to the beach towels. The kitchen was fully functional and stocked with beautiful appliances. I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a stress-free vacation. Thank you Ernest and Gamal for helping us DE-STRESS during this stressful time for us. It was a pleasure to meet you both!!

All the best,

Teresa & Robert Shadwick
