This fully furnished studio beach apt is the perfect place to recharge your batteries from the stresses of Cairo. The beach is clean and the apt has a gorgeous ocean and mountain view. Great for couples, families, or those needing to get away.

The space

This beautiful studio apartment within the Louly beach complex [the former Ramada Inn] has a large balcony right next to the ocean. It is furnished, with a queen sized bed, and a comfortable large fold out couch that also sleeps 2. It has high quality appliances including full frig, stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer. It also has an air conditioner and heater. Full bath and shower, marble top counters, and satellite TV, but the main attraction is how rare it is to find a ocean front place like this to rent in the area. Anyone who has lived in Cairo for any length of time knows its hard to find a clean beachfront getaway that is only an hour and ten minute drive.

This studio apartment beach chalet is right on the beach. The view is amazing. The Owners Beach is private with fixed wooden umbrellas along the sand. The chalet is on the second floor of 2 floors. The complex also has a huge pool, including wading pool, which owners (and their guests) are entitled to use when in service. Note that the pool may not be open in the off season. The chalet also has a coffeemaker, all the dishes and silverware, bedding, and a few beach items.

Check out is 2:00 p.m. unless otherwise asked!

If you are looking for long term, we will offer a very reasonable price for this chalet. It is very suitable for persons with a principle residence in Cairo, but who want a nice escape on the weekends to a place on the ocean with clean air and no traffic. Long term stays over a week are only suitable for persons who have access to an automobile, since there is no grocery store within walking distance.

We rent for shorter periods of time, but there is a 3 night minimum due to the expense of hiring professional cleaning staff that must travel from Cairo after each guest.

It's a wonderful place to gaze at the ocean, with gorgeous views from inside, and either on the beach or balcony (there's an amazing view of the mountains from the entry balcony in front as well). It is my dream house, where I travel in reverie, if not in body, when times are tough, and my weekend trips there renewed my spirit in the 5 years my family and I lived in Cairo.

Private owners beach, seasonal pool, full furniture and appliances including TV, dishwasher and washer/dryer, dishes.

Guest access

Guests have access to the private owners beach, pool, full furniture and appliances including dishwasher and washer/dryer, dishes and any beach floats.

Interaction with guests

We will not have direct interaction with guests during their stay as we live abroad, but there are family members living in Cairo that are around and can help with small issues and key exchanges, and emergency apartment questions. My brother in law, Sameeh, lives in Cairo and manages the chalet for us. He speaks Arabic and English, and is also available to drive groups from Cairo to Ain Sokhna and back for hire in an air conditioned car. If you are interested in this addition, please let me know and we can help arrange.

Other things to note

As is the case everywhere in Egypt, there are occasional electrical and water stoppages. These usually resolve themselves without problem, but are noted here as they do occur, and must be expected for any rentals in Egypt.

We had a fantastic time staying at Terry's studio. Already before our trip, she and her brother-in-law, Sameeh, were really friendly and helpful. With regard to the place, both the bed and the sofa bed are super comfortable and the little kitchen is great. It is really close to the Mövenpick hotel/restaurant and, more importantly, it is right next to the beautiful and quiet beach. I would definitely recommend staying there

Nice small but cozy loft on a quiet resort. The beach is one step away and is very clean and not packed with people. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, this is it!

Thank you Terry and the housekeeper Sameeh for this great week we could have there. Sameeh picked us up at the airport and drove us to an supermarket, to the house and also back, all worked really good. The place itself is really great to have a relaxed time. Only the walk to the Mövenpick hotel for dinner in the night could have better lightning, take your flashlight with you. The food in the restaurant is good and not so expensive.

We had a wonderful and very relaxing time staying at the apartment. The location is fantastic, a quiet sandy beach and a short walk down to Movenpick hotel for a fresh seafood dinner.

My name is Terry Crawford and I grew up in Baytown, Texas. I have lived and worked all over the world and have homes in Texas, and Egypt. My husband and I have 2 grown daughters, and a son in elementary school. We are Americans currently living in Texas. I have a law degree from the University of Texas.

I am excited to share our beach house in Ain Sokha, Egypt with the Airbnb community. Ideally we are looking for long term tenants who will treat the place like their own, though we also welcome short term guests. If you have any questions about the beach house please don't hesitate to message me!

For timing purposes, please remember that we are in Texas and will get back to your message as soon as we can given the international time differences.
