I love Dahab, this is my 3rd visit and it is a longer trip as I planned a 90 day stay in Egypt. I'm an active guy and came out work on and enjoy making some improvement diving and learning new skills. 2 weeks in to my trip I broke my right leg and had an operation to set it and was told not to put any weight through it for 6 weeks. I was in a lot of pain in hospital and I was feeling pretty apprehensive about how I would manage getting out and about, basically doing things for myself. As soon as I got inside Residence Arabesque my body started to respond by relaxing, pain levels flattened really quick too I only noticed the discreet design considerations and modifications throughout the apartment and garden area on day 2. I was immediately self reliant being able to use the house wheelchair or my own crutches. The beds are perfectly supportive and soft, memory foam has been used on the sofa and pull out futon, I can rest in complete comfort using custom built sturdy coffee tables, thick and heavy bedside tables to push off or lean on as I sit or lie down. The apartment has a rocking chair which helps me keep knee and ankle joints supple, a hammock suspending me less than an inch from the soft stone floor lets me strengthen muscle tone whilst protecting the injury site. I can rest my hip and injured leg comfortably suspended in a deck chair with my toes in between green grass on a mowed lawn area. The detail of this property is comprehensive and intelligently thought out. My body is responding by showing good signs of early recovery thanks to the ergonomics of everything here. My research did not uncover many wheelchair friendly properties in Dahab. This property deserves to win awards the design of Residence Arabesque really works. Thank you

I have stayed in many different houses/flats in Dahab but this is by far the best. The service, the Arabic styled building, the elegant design inside/outside, the well equipped kitchen, the cleanliness, the comfy bed, the lovely garden, location....I had 2 fab weeks in the Garden Apartment. Also Bron who manages the house is the sweetest. I will come back to this house everytime I go to Dahab.

We had a wonderful times trying at Arabesque in Dahab. The ground floor apartment is beautifully laid out and excellent for the accessibility of my wheelchair. A truly relaxing place to spend time and relax. Easy walking distance to local restaurants and cafés on the sea front and the wonderful Bedouin town of Dahab. The kitchen and bathroom are completely accessible with lots of space and ease of access. Would return tomorrow.

The apartment itself has beautiful decor, is clean, comfy and in a great location. The apartment is on a typical bedouin residential street so as soon as you step out of the gates you feel part of the community. The main Bedouin town is a short walk away, as is the beach and full range of sea front restaurants. The trips out of town were easy to arrange and all of our drivers were friendly and helpful. There is a folder left by the owners, with personal recommendations of restaurants and dive centres.

My partner and I had such a lovely stay at Residence Arabesque. As soon as we walked through the door we felt welcomed and knew we'd have a comfortable and relaxing stay and couldn't wait to unpack! The apartment was clean, spacious and bright and appreciated the starter food in the fridge. The hammock in the back patio area was my favorite and spent a lot of time relaxing there with contentment! It was my first visit to Dahab and it was a great location as everything is a short walk away, shops, restaurants and of course the sea! It's a beautiful property and of high quality. We can't wait to stay there again on our next visit. Staying elsewhere would seem rather strange as we loved the property so much. Thanks Sophie and Bron!

I had a long stay in this accommodation It was fantastic, perfectly located and very peaceful energy. Any questions I had we're answered straight away by Sophie who gave me fantastic advice before arriving and while I was staying there. I second what someone already wrote arriving to a fridge containing the essentials is a great welcoming. I would highly recommend this accommodation if you we're a couple or like me visiting dahab

Just got back from a week in Dahab at this fabulous apartment. It was everything we hoped it would be. Spacious enough for the two of us, great location, well- stocked kitchen with some starter food in the fridge, and a great back patio area. Sophie was a dream to work with, accommodating all our needs and wants. I love Dahab and will certainly return to Residence Arabesque. Thanks, Sophie for helping make our stay perfect!

I believe that we were the first rental in this fabulous apartment-Sophie made it really simple and easy for us from the beginning to the end. We often go to Dahab for the amazing diving and it was such a pleasure to come back here after a long day in the water! Great location-only a short walk to the beach and restaurants-it really does stand out from the other accommodation available-can't wait to go back and stay again soon!

Wir suchten Ruhe, Sonne und eine geeignete Unterkunft, und haben genau das gefunden. Unsere Familie mit zwei Kleinkindern hatte mehr als genug Platz. Alles war bestens eingerichtet – an wirklich alles war gedacht. Garten, Gärtner und Wohnung inkl. Spielsachen und Bücher erfreuten uns und unsre Kinder sehr. Der Flughafentransfer klappte einwandfrei und die sehr zuvorkommende "housekeeperin" hat sich umsichtig um uns gekümmert. Auf den 5 Minuten Fussweg bis zum Lighthouse waren die zahlreichen Kinder und Ziegen willkommene Weggefährten.

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.

This is absolutely the nicest apartment in Dahab. The house is adoreable, just love the arabic style. The garden is beautifully kept. Lots of lush green plants and a lovely lawn. Here u can really relax. The street and the area is also very quiet. Inside the apartement its gorgeous and stylish and all the rooms are big and airy. U will find everything u need. The kitchen is very well equipped. Even a dishwasher, which is not usual for Dahab. Inside the cupboard in bathroom u will also find all the normal remedies in case u have stomach trouble or if u get a cold, or have a cut/small accident. This I found very handy as I didnt have to go to chemist. Also they stock the fridge with whatever u want and make sure there is plenty of water on ur arrival. The service is top and u have the housemanager available at all times. Just a phone call and she will be there to help u or give advise. The location is top. Less than 5 min from the beach and all the shops. I stay here everytime I go to Dahab (3-4 times) a year. And Im sure u will also come back once u have stayed her.

I went there start of Jan. It was awesome place since the time of arrival and the reception of the host and how they prepared the place and how clean and neat it was. Sophie & Linda were more than awesome. I would recommend this place for sure if you're looking for a cozy, clean place and smart management specially that it is very close to the downtown of Dahab. I will come back again I do believe that. I highly recommend that place.
