About Ernest A. Slingsby

Villa Tunis is a dream that grew out of our life in our villa in a village southwest of Cairo, Egypt. Due to the unrest in 2103, we now live in south Florida, only a few miles west of Villa Tunis. Handicrafts in Villa Tunis come from the village or the souks of Cairo and reflect 20 years of life there.

These experiences bring an international flavor to Villa Tunis as well as an understanding of the excitement of traveling to a new location and exploring all that the setting has to offer.

We live close to Villa Tunis and are always ready to help guests enjoy their vacations with us.

Ernest A. Slingsby purchased this apartment in 2014

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from Fort Lauderdale where we had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Tunis.

Gamal Gareeb met us at the Villa and politely showed us all the rudiments.

He was diligent in familiarizing us with the various appliances etc.

Mr Slingsby was very cordial in greeting us the following day.

The Villa is exactly as advertised. It is spotless and the beds are very comfortable. The property is well taken care of and has all the appliances and implements required for a comfortable stay.

We highly recommend it to all who wish to visit that area, and we hope to oneday return.

It is convenient and very close to the airport and it is also close to many food markets and restaurants.

Thank you Gamal and Mr Slingsby for a great vacation.

Our stay at Villa Tunis was fabulous. The apartment was exactly as described and very comfortable. The location is great - there are several restaurants within walking distance and it was a 10 min drive to the beach. Ernest (owner) and Gamal (property manager) were very gracious and were at the apartment nearly every day. The apartment was super clean and the bed was very comfortable. Highly recommended!

Just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

We rented all five apartments over the Christmas week. The property was beautiful and well maintained. The location was excellent: Las Olas and the Riverwalk 5 minutes away, the beach a 10 minute drive. There were multiple restaurants and grocery stores within walking distance. The pool was somewhat small, but the kids loved it nonetheless. The management was quickly and competently responsive to our needs. I highly recommend staying at Villa Tunis.

A wonderful place to call home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed at Villa Tunis and it was even more warm, welcoming, and wonderful than the first.

Ernest was so accommodating as we had some special requirements regarding staff for our booth at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show. He was a pleasure to work with.

Gamal is a fantastic manager and always ready to help in any way. It was like seeing an old friend when he greeted us in the parking area upon our arrival.

The apartment was perfect with some special welcoming touches. Everything was spotless and beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back next year.

Thanks Ernest and Gamal for your great hospitality. You made a very busy week just a bit more enjoyable.
