Property and local area description
Private Apartment, one of two units in gated villa
Pass through the iron gate and you will find yourself in a bougainvillea-covered garden. Unlock the heavy front door, and you are in a marble entry hall with steps leading up to the spacious rooftop terrace. Your door is on the left the only other ground-floor unit has a separate entrance. In your apartment you will find everything you need to enjoy a comfortable and economical holiday: the beds are made, towels hang in the bathroom (with tub and hand-held shower), and the kitchen is well-equipped. Your host will bring you breakfast in the morning if you wish otherwise, you determine how much to cook for yourself and how often to visit one of the several excellent restaurants in walking distance.
Quiet, convenient West Bank
When savvy tourists visit Luxor, they dont stay in the bustling city itself, but in the quiet, garden community of El Gazeera. Most tourists attractions are located on the West Bank of the Nile, so you save yourself a daily boat ride or lengthy drive across the bridge. (Only the Karnak and Luxor Temples and the Luxor Museum are on the East Bank all of the tombs, Deir el Bahari, and several temples are located on the West Bank.) Though quiet, this area has everything you need: small grocery stores, coffee shops and internet cafes, camel and donkey rides, taxis to take you anywhere in the region, and a nice mixture of international tourists and locals with ready smiles.
