Scuba Diving,Water sports, Trips and Eating Out
From this wonderful location you can experience any kind of holiday you desire - from a totally relaxing retreat to an action-packed adventure. Hurghada is famous for its World-class diving. The quality of the reef is said to be surpassed only by the Great Barrier Reef. The area is also renowned for wreck diving such as the Thistlegorm.
All levels of diving are catered for from basic training through to advanced technical dives. You can pre-book this through me if you wish. If there are members of your party who dont wish to dive, they are able to join you either to snorkel or just to take the boat trip. An excellent lunch is served on full day trips.
You will find many other water sports including kite surfing, catamarans and fishing. An Aqua park, fabulous beaches and spas are available close by there is an 18-hole USPGA golf course 20 kilometres away. There is also a fantastic choice of restaurants to suit every taste from fine dining to Macdonalds and Pizza Hut to fabulous inexpensive local fish restaurants. There are several nightclubs including Ministry of Sound and Hard Rock café.
Desert safaris, Quad Safaris, excursions to Luxor, Cairo, Aswan and the pyramids at Giza can all be arranged for you. We can even arrange a 3 or 5 day cruise down the Nile for you. If you want to book these trips they can be booked through our friend who will pick you up from the airport on your arrival. If you wish to prebook and pay for your trips and diving before your departure from the UK contact me for full details and prices. This can be arranged.
Local taxis and buses are very cheap and although car hire is possible it is not recommended. The Egyptians seem to drive on both sides of the road and a lot of the time without lights on even when it is dark!! Surprisingly on my many trips I have not seen an accident.
From the UK you can fly directly into Hurghada.From elsewhere if you cannot get a direct flight you can fly via Luxor or Cairo.Egyptair fly daily into Hurghada from both Luxor and Cairo.
Flights get booked up quickly especially in school holidays so it is as well to book as early as possible.
For your convenience you will be met at Hurghada airport by a friend of ours who will transport you to our apartment and return you there at the end of the holiday. He can also arrange any diving or excursions you wish to make at a very reasonable price.

We cannot accept, be responsible for or be liable in respect of loss, damage, changes or cancellations caused by major coups (i.e. strikes, floods, fire, closure of airports, terrorist attacks, political unrest, war or the threat of war, industrial disputes, technical difficulties, weather conditions) or any other events beyond our control. During your stay we do not accept any liability whatsoever for death, personal injury, accidents, loss or damage to persons or personal effects, however caused.
The swimming pool is very occasionally closed for maintenance.Unfortunately because it is a shared pool we have no control over this and cannot accept liability if the pool is unavailable for use during your stay. There are pools fairly close by that you will be able to use if this happens.
There are two large sofas in the living room. one of these converts into a king sized bed and sleeps a further 2 people.
A Travel cot,high chair and baby buggy complete with sunshade are available. Please note that we do not provide bedding for the travel cot.
There are 3 wide steps up to the apartment entrance and we have a ramp which can be put down for the length of your stay if necessary to negotiate these. I think access to the kitchen may be difficult in a wheelchair but the rest of the apartment is spacious. There are 2 grab rails in the en suite shower room and we also have a shower stool and a raised toilet seat.Please email me with your telephone number so that we can discuss these facilities before booking.
Occasionally the swimming pool has to be closed for maintenance. As this is a shared pool we have no control over this. However if the pool was unavailable during your stay we will try to make other arrangements for the use of a nearby pool.
