I've just enjoyed a really pleasant stay at Residence Arabesque apartment. It's a beautiful villa in the heart of the Bedouin village and a real oasis of cool and calm. The styling inside the villa is simple and lovely - I found the living room and bedroom really comfortable and the bathroom and kitchen really clean and in good working order. The bathroom is set up as a wet room to accommodate a wheelchair. The garden is well-tended and I found a small tortoise living there, which was delightful. The roof terrace has great views across the roofs of Dahab out to the sea, and to the Sinai mountains behind. Great for sundowners in the deckchairs provided. Bettina, the house manager, lives in and is on hand for anything you might need. However, she'd left a 'starter pack' of food and drink so from there I didn't need much at all, as I tended to eat out. There is a Bedouin supermarket just at the end of the road where you can buy all your basics. There's also a handy ATM adjacent to it. The apartment is a five-minute walk from the seafront and I found the Blue Beach hotel a useful place to lounge, poolside. Great food, too. Be aware that there is a mosque directly outside the villa (I happen to love the sound of the muezzin) and the Bedouin street is filled with goats and small children. If you like to feel as though you're living in a local community, then this is the place for you. I'd definitely book this apartment again and recommend it to anyone wanting a peaceful stay in Dahab town.
