About Ernest A. Slingsby

We live close to Villa Tunis so we are always ready to help guests. Previously, we 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.

Villa Tunis is a Florida limited liability company licensed to provide vacation and extended stay rentals.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

The closest station is located east of Galleria Mall at 2670 E Sunrise Blvd. Walk through the lobby the hotel and the water taxi station No. 9 is located on the canal (the hotel management will help you find the taxi station). Check the Water Taxi web page for schedules, station locations and tariffs.

Wilton Manors and its bars and shops are a short drive. Just take NE 15th Avenue north until you reach Flying L Drive and you will be in the center of Wilton Manors. Bars, shops and restaurants are located on both sides of the drive.

Delightful !

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have stayed at Villa Tunis and were very impressed with the accomodations. It was extremely clean and fully stocked. The pool and backyard gardens were beautifully landscaped. The Manager, Gamal, couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. It will be the place to stay when we return to Ft. Lauderdale !

Very nice retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were conducting family business in the area. Villa Tunis provided a very clean, comfortable and quiet retreat. Gamal was great to work with. We didn't arrive until after midnight, but he was on site to greet us and to show us through the apartment. Thanks again!

Delighted to be here.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here about four times on relatively short trips. We find it comfortable, well appointed and conveniently located. We sleep quite well here. The owners are accessible and helpful, but in no way intrustive.

I am not sure if we will be by Fort Lauderdate in December and/or January, but if you are thinking about renting around year end, better hurry before I rent it first!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here 3 or 4 times and are coming again. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable; we enjoy a great night's , well into the mid-morning, and take a few minutes at the pool before heading out to whatever we have planned.

The owners are helpful while respecting your privacy. We feel more like guests than clients.

We are veterans of VRBO bookings and have not been shy in expressing our complaints. We are also not shy in expressing our satisfaction. We recommend the Villa Tunis highly.

Vacation at Villa Tunis

  • 5 of 5

I have not been to Ft. Lauderdale since I was little. So my first trip back was definitely a great experience. I had a wonderful place to stay with everything I needed. It was like home away from home. The Manager, Gamal was exceptional when I arrived and gave me all information I needed to know for my stay. This is the first time I rented on VRBO and it will defiantly will not be my last. I would recommend Villa Tunis to anyone who visits the Ft. Lauderdale area.
