General description

Traditional Bedouin home in Dahab, with big garden, trees. About 800 meters (.5 miles) from Assalah Square area and 2.5 km (1.5 miles) from Dahab center, ideal for relaxing. Comes with bicycles to get around. There is 4 indoor/outdoor cats and 5 outdoor chickens.

Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Big garden
  • 4 cats
  • Farm animals
I have 4 cats and 5 chickens. The cats need to be feed morning and evening (and afternoon if you happen to be home). The cats sleep outside at night and inside the house during the day. The 5 chickens are outside in the garden. They need to be given food in the morning, and fresh water 2-3 times per day. Water the garden every evening. Check the water levels in the water tanks. Check if there are new baby chicks, they need to go in the separate cage so that the cats don't eat them.

It is very nice and relaxing in the home, and there is very fast Wifi with 400 GB per month. Shopping is easy in Assalah Square (there are lots of different shops and some restaurants there). For more restaurants you can go to Lighthouse (about 2.5 km away) - just a 5 minute bike ride / 15 minute walk. There are lots of great restaurants and cafes on the seaside. The outdoor patio is set-up with a table, chairs and a light. It's great for eating outside by the garden and the chicks with fresh air.

The home is located in a very friendly Bedouin neighborhood, it is very safe and the neighbors are always willing to lend a helping hand if you need any help at all.

There's lots to discover in Dahab and so many activities and great trips you can do. Many people like to go scuba diving, freediving and/or snorkeling, because the Red Sea offers idea conditions. There's also kite surfing, wind surfing, desert trekking and rock climbing. There are awesome trips you can go on like Saint Catherine, Wadi Arada, Mount Sinai, Tiran Island and more. For those who just want to chill out and relax, there are plenty of beachside cafes and lounges with excellent food, fresh juice, great coffee and nice vibes.

To Tuesday 2021

flexible dates

I have purchased my flight ticket and will leave early in the morning on September 4th. My return ticket I have not purchased yet. It would be great if the house sitter could come at least one day earlier than the day before I leave, so I can give instructions, get to know one another and introduce you to the neighborhood! The house sitting dates are somewhat flexible, because I can ask someone to look after things for a day or two if needed.
