1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with balconies front & back & large roof terrace
About Lee Thompson
We live in Leicestershire, UK & enjoy travelling & holidays in sunny locations & kept going back to Sharm El Sheikh, year after year because of the year round sun, snorkelling & diving. We originally bought a property in Sharm in 2008 but bought this property off our friends in 2011 & we use it as a holiday home for ourselves as well as renting it to help cover the costs!
Lee Thompson purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Lee Thompson chose Sharm El-Sheikh
The great thing out this property is it is located within easy walking distance of shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars & the beach unlike some properties in Sharm which are 'in the middle of nowhere'. Our favourite things are the large private roof terrace & large pool which you have to yourself most of the time. Nabq Bay is a very up & coming area & is very laid back & relaxed compared to Naama Bay. There are a good selection of restaurants & bars & a nice beach walkway.
What makes this Apartment unique
Sitting on the roof terrace either by day soaking up the sun on the sun loungers or by night having a BBQ & bottle of wine this is a special place. You have the mountains one way & the sea the other & you can look out over the large pool. We talk to so many people who go to Sharm & love the place but end up in crowded hotels having bland all inclusive food. We like to relax in our own space & do things at our own pace. We like to walk to the local restaurants or maybe pop to the local supermarket for some fresh seafood to put on the BBQ on the roof terrace & enjoy this washed down with some local wine. The apartment itself is well furnished & comfortable & air-conditioned. We try to provide everything that you'd need on holiday in addition to the usual essentials of cutlery, crockery, kitchenware, bedding & towels, etc. we provide that bit more. Pool / beach towels, a good selection of books, pack or cards, phrasebook, ice bucket for the wine, satellite TV.

SUPER APPARTEMENT ET TRèS GRANDE PISCINE
Nous avons séjourné dans l'appartement de Mr LEE tout était parfait et très joli il ne manque rien même les serviettes de toilettes et de bain et de plage surtout que cela prend de la place dans les valises .La piscine est très grande et très bien entretenue nous avions eu la piscine pour nous seul ,la terrasse privée quel bonheur ,très agréable avec bain de soleil ou vous pouvez bronzer.Quand vous sortez de l'appartement il y a des magasins tout autour et des super marché pour ses courses .Si vous voulez aller plus loin comme a Soho square ou Mama Bay vous prenez un bus pour presque rien .Mr Lee est très sympa et gère de loin quand on a un problème .Il y a aussi Andrew qui s'occupe de l'appartement quand vous arrivez qui est trés gentil.Je recommande cet appartement et j'espère qu'une autre fois j'aurais l'occasion d'y retourner
Thanks for your review & we glad you enjoyed your stay & am pleased Andrew managed to look after you when you were there. I have put a translation of your review below for any non French speakers.
The place is well located near the shops and quiet, the apartment was lacking nothing with a beautiful private terrace where you can sunbathe quietly with sunbeds, the pool is very large not a lot of people in we had the pool For us all alone very nice to be quiet and very well cleaned cleaned every day. We had not to bring our towels and beach everything was provided with. The owner Mr Lee and very friendly and easy to reach by email and if there is a problem he tells us how to do it.Andrew who manages the apartment is very nice he came to pick us up at the airport and we drive back at the end of the stay.I highly recommend this apartment
Had a great stay at the sharm bride resort and Lee communicated all relevant information effectively to us before and after our visit.
Apartment offered us everything we needed for our 11 day stay and comes with a great selection of amenities, like towels and extension leads for English plugs, which we appreciated during or stay. The apartment also has a lovely roofed area with nicer sunbeds than the ones provided around the pool. The apartment itself is very clean and the bathroom and shower where particularly nice.
Water and electricity meters have to be toped up by visitors but this is cheap and we were more than happy to do this as we definatly got more than value for money with the apartment itself.
We will definatly be returning in the future. Thanks again Lee
Thanks for your review & positive comments. We try to provide everything a holiday maker could need so am pleased this is appreciated. We had the new bathroom fitted in 2017 so am pleased you liked this. We look forward to welcoming you back again in the future
we had a nice stay , it is a full option apartment , but i got few things that i have noticed 1)the owner should pay the electricity and the water in relative to the lease cost which was 4700 egyption pound in 7 days only and i paid 300 for the electricity which eventually costed me 5000 which i think was a much i could talke a five stars hotel with dinner n breakfast with the same amount 2) no see view u gotta talke a taxi to reach the beach n its nt free 350 for 7 days 3) there was an electric stove rather than a gas stove which was slow i couldnt cook at all n it consumed much power literally 2 hours to cook a meal..4) the dogs were swimming in the same pool we swam in rather than that everything was ok its was very clean apartment fully furnished every thing is working good n no noise over the place at all and its safe, andrew is agood man straight forward very helpful n friendly . definitely i would recommend it for any one n i hope the owner wont be sad bcz its a constructive criticism
Thanks for your review, our local manager, Andrew, said you had mentioned the electricity charge issue & the fact that a dog went in the swimming pool when you checked out. Andrew is on hand to resolve any issues & I am always available by e-mail & in touch with the resort manager, it is a shame you didn’t mention these things when you were there so we could resolve them during your stay & hope they didn’t affect your enjoyment too much. We have never had an issues with any of these things in the 6 years we have owned & rented the apartment. I would like to address each of your points separately.
1) I originally mis-read your comments & thought you'd paid 4700 Egyptian pounds for electric / water which would have been excessive. After clarification understand you paid 300 Egyptian pounds which at today's exchange rate less than £15 pounds sterling. I clearly state water and electric are additional and for 1 week in the height of summer with air conditioning on with cooking & 3 adults in the apartment think £5 per person is a reasonable amount.
2) You can see the sea from the roof terrace & show photos of the balcony view on the website. We normally walk to the nearest beach (El Balad) which is about a 10 minute walk away, I appreciate some people may prefer to get a taxi in the heat of the summer or use one of the many other beaches which are a taxi ride away.
3) It sounds like there may be a problem with the electric hob if it was taking you 2 hours to cook a meal & I will get this checked out. It is just a normal standard power 4 ring electric hob. I have had this checked & it is working fine - however the markings have come off when cleaning the hob so it is easy to turn this on low power thinking it is on high power, which could explain why things were taking so long.
4) There is absolutely no way dogs should be allowed in the swimming pool & I raised this immediately with the resort manager once Andrew let me know you made this comment yesterday.
I can only apologise for this.
It is a real shame you had these issues & we couldn’t deal with them when you were there. We have many happy guests returning time & time again & I am really sorry to hear not everything was perfect as it should be. I can assure you I will raise all of these issues with the resort manager & will e-mail you separately to progress further.
Excellent location very clean and spacious apart mentioned. Easy access to shops and restaurants.
Absolutely brilliant. Lovely apartment with everything you need. Beautiful, massive swimming pool. The owner was very informative and no question was to much. Lee even arranged transport both ways from the airport with a tour of sharm and it's good restardust's and also informed us of other places we could visit and how much to expect to pay in a taxi.
I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay at our apartment. We try to make it as easy as possible for guests before & during their stay & provide everything we can. We hope you'll come back again soon.
Had an amazing time. The flat was first class, was really clean Had everything like home from home; but with sunshine. Plenty of clean towels for use and bedding. Washing machine. Which I really liked and want the same it played pretty tunes. Everything was modern not like some places I've stayed . Would highly recommend. It's close to shops and bars .ideal location. Would stay again
Thanks for your review it is much appreciated & I'm really pleased you liked the apartment. We upgraded all furniture & bedding etc in October 2015 so am pleased you like the fact that it is up to date. Our local "managers", Stuart & Tina do a great job of keeping things clean & looking after our guests. Thanks again & we look forward to welcoming you back again.
Sharm Bride Stay
Great apartment would recommend highly.
Thanks so much for taking the time to do a review. We're really pleased you like the apartment & would recommend it to others
The property is well situated with shops, bars and restaurants nearby. There are great supermarkets 'Ragabs' & 'Metro' a short walk away where you can stock up and they'll even deliver your shopping for you. As well as restaurant / bars outside our resort there are plenty of restaurants in Nabq Bay within a short walk. There is the Jasmine Centre area with local restaurants and show. In the “Al Khan” area of Nabq Bay there are good restaurants & just past this is La Strada Mall. At Al Khan / La Strada there are a selection of local bars & restaurants as well as well know international brands such as McDonald’s, KFC, TGI Friday, Burger King & Starbucks. Over the road is the Hard Rock Cafe. Many restaurants do take away / home delivery & there are a variety of menus with phone numbers in the apartment.
It is worth a taxi ride to Naama Bay for a lively night out with an abundance of bars, restaurants & clubs. It is also worth a taxi ride to Soho Square where there is a good selection of upmarket bars, restaurants & shops. There's even an ice rink & ice bar!
