About this listing
My place is close to all of Luxor's ancient monuments, great views, and restaurants and dining. You’ll love my place because of the Egyptian ambiance and quiet scenery. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).
Family Home Luxor is located on the West Bank of Luxor, in the village, at just a 40 minute drive from Luxor International Airport. If you are looking for a great location close to all the tourist attractions that Luxor has to offer, but yet quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the city center, then our unique and quiet house is the right place for you. Family Home Luxor is surrounded by tranquil palm trees and farm land and is set in the midst of a small traditional Egyptian village, off Al Qarna road.
Luxor Temple is located at about a kilometer distance from the Family Home Luxor and Hatshepsut Temple and Medinet Habu are 4 km away. The city of Luxor is also easy to reach by just a 15 minute walk to the ferry and public transportation is available 24/7.
Family Home Luxor is a two-story house in traditional Arabic style, simple but eloquent, with beautiful domes. The first floor is unoccupied, since it is unfinished, but on the second floor there is a fully equipped apartment. It has a private entrance and features a living room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms that fit up to three persons. It has two balconies with a fantastic view of the countryside and Thebes Mountain. The apartment is also equipped with free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, fans, fridge, stove, kettle, closets, a dining area and satellite TV (free laundry service is available upon request).
About food: as described, there is a fully functional, but simple, kitchen where you can cook yourself. However, if you don’t feel like cooking or going out to find a restaurant, we can provide fresh Egyptian home-made food, for an additional cost of $6 per meal per person (vegetarian and vegan option available upon request).

Other things to note
As a certified Egyptologist tour guide and tour operator I can help you organize any kind of tour in and around Luxor, on your own or with a professional Egyptologist tour guide (if I have time I will guide you myself, otherwise I will set you up with one of my reliable colleagues). Here are some examples of what could be arranged for you: any sightseeing in Luxor and around (Valley of the Kings, Tutankamun's Tomb, Karnak Temple or Dendera and Abydos, Edfu and Kom Ombo, Cairo and Red Sea), Nile cruises to/from Aswan, or activities in Luxor (hot-air balloon rides, felucca boat rides, horseback and camel rides). But I can also arrange a private car so you could do sightseeing by yourself, or pickup and drop off from airport, train or bus station. Anything is available upon request and I am always happy to help. Please feel free to contact me about it; I will answer any question you have :)
- Egyptian and Arab guests should be able to show an official marriage certificate

Welcome to Luxor!
My name is Ragab and I've been working as an Egyptologist tour guide for about 10 years now. I travel with guests all over Egypt to show them all the ancient wonders, but I especially enjoy the archaeological sites in Luxor, where I've been born and raised. Over the years I have met many different people from all over the world and I have always enjoyed to share all Egypt has to offer and to share my knowledge of the Egyptian past and present.
I'm an easygoing and open-minded person, with a good sense of humor and I take care that my guests are in good hands.
I have rooms available with an authentic and unique character in a quiet area, but near all the important places for Luxor visitors.
If you need any help for your travels, you can contact me any time.
