Overview

An English owned and managed oasis of epicurian delight, hidden away in a tiny alley, in the heart of Luxors bustling old town. From the terrace, we can see the Theban Hills, wherein are the Royal Tombs, the domains of Anubis, the jackal headed god of the dead. We can watch the hot air balloons looming out of the early morning mists to welcome the rising sun, which every day chases the shadows from the temples of the old gods.
We have designed our guest apartment to be the realisation of our dreams of the Arabian Nights, of Ali Baba's 40 thieves and of Aladdin, with his magic lamp.
You can come and join us, in this city which steals hearts and then, like some Genie, compels its lovers to forsake everything which has gone before.
For we are in Egypt, the real Egypt and the real Luxor........"Our Luxor".

As far as we are aware, "ourluxor" is the only holiday rental on the East Bank, in the centre of Luxor. Within a few minutes of walking, you can be at Luxor Temple and the Avenue of Sphinxes, or Luxor Museum, in one direction, or at the Railway Station or the vast (9000 capacity) new Coptic Church in the other. In between are Luxors Gold Market, the Souks, two vegetable markets, fresh juice bars, various local take-aways, countless coffee houses and local restaurants, Mosques and a few Non-Conformist Churches. All of the many ancient historical sites on the East and West Banks of the Nile (The Valley of the Kings, Ramesseum, Karnak Temple etc.) are easily accessible in less than 30 minutes from our apartment. As is the Kings Valley Golf Club, the excellent Animal Care in Egypt (A.C.E.) Veterinary Hospital and Luxors only Quad Biking Centre. Within a five minute walk from our building, there are two hotels which allow non-residents to use their pools.

Amenities & services

The entrance hall sets the tone of the apartment, with its Moorish arch and meshrabeya screen, and antique furnishings standing upon the small hand made oriental carpet.

Passing through another strikingly ornate arabesque screen one enters the spacious and comfortable living room. Here the beautiful furniture compliments the Arabian Nights decor, and the exquisite carpet, all hand made.

The large air conditioner keeps this room cool in the summer and warms it during the winter. Two variable ceiling fans can also create a cooling movement of the air.

As well as being great for lounging on, like an old time Pasha, the three dikkehs (Egyptian sofa beds) are also very comfortable as beds, with their full size single mattresses.

The walls are adorned with antique pictures and a large antique mirror, as well as colourful wall hangings. The outer wall is taken up with large tinted windows, and doors which slide open to gain access to the "Smokers Balcony".

The television is wired to a Satellite and a DVD player, various DVD's are available. On request, a CD player and CD's are also available, as is an additional selection of books for the small library.

Entering the bedroom, we find the en-suite shower room and W.C. on the left and the in-built wardrobe on the right. The handmade twin beds can also be locked together to form a "superking" sized bed. This room also has an air conditioner/heater. There is a dressing table and mirror, for your convenience.

To the left of the bedroom door, is a separate W.C. and wash basin.

The kitchen is equipped with the usual necessities: cooker, fridge, hot and cold water, stainless steel drainer and bowl, toaster, kettle etc.

ARABIAN DAYS & NIGHTS

Stayed at "Out Luxor Apartments" last May. Its in an idal location in the heart of old Luxor making all the major sights readilly accessible be it on foot or the many types of other transport available. The apartment is spotlessley clean, and spacious and has been lovingly and tastefully furnished. The air conditioned apartment is very welcoming after a long day out seeing all the sights and mingling with the locals, and I have to say the bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. The breakfasts on the terrace are not to be missed and you must ask Edward to take you out to get a falafal sandwich for breakfast one morning from the best falafal store in the whole of luxor. When staying in this apartment you really do feel like you have been transported to a different world. From collection at the airport until your return journey nothing is to much trouble for Edward and Freda. Kitchen is stocked with tea, coffee, milk sugar, and biscuits, spotless clean white linen and towls make for that added touch of luxury. This is the real way to experience luxor.

Luxor oasis

This apartment definitely has the 'wow factor'! After climbing the stairs from the friendly alley, it's great to see the tastefully-decorated and comfortable 'our luxor'. The breakfasts are excellent, and kitchen ideal for the all-important cuppa and meals, though self-catering is hardly worth it with so many nice places to eat round about.The owners' extensive local knowledge and many contacts make it easy to arrange any excursions or visits.

Wonderful Place

My husband and I stayed at "Our Luxor" last summer after finding it online back here in the states. It looked fantastic, and the price was right. The apartment turned out to be even better than we expected (especially after staying in Cairo!) spacious, comfortable, clean, private, ideally located, beautifully, even artfully decorated ala "Arabian Nights" (warm, exotic and charming all at the same time), and well stocked with kitchen and bath necessities. Being so close to Luxor Temple, the Market, restaurants etc... was also great... we even walked to Karnak Temple from the apartment which is one of the reasons to stay here - you can get to everything so easily. If you don’t want to walk there are plenty of other inexpensive (yes, really) options, such as hiring a horse drawn carriage, or hopping on a mini-bus. Getting to the Nile and across to the West Bank to visit the "Valley of the Kings" etc., was also a breeze, and "Our Luxor" waiting there for you to come back to at the end of a long, hot day is priceless. The best thing about the place however is its owners. Edward and Freda do all they can to make sure you feel secure, cared for, they provide maps and directions, give advice about sites, restaurants, how to handle locals, where to shop, etc., etc. And the breakfasts! Did I not mention the breakfasts? Definitely get them. You are treated to a beautiful English table setting up on the terrace, and ample helpings of a variety of fresh, satisfying food. We are talking real breakfast, not some measly little excuse of a meal offered at some other places we stayed at. In closing: Don't miss the opportunity to stay at "Our Luxor," it was one of the best parts of our month long stay in Egypt: great price, great location, tons of room, great food, great hosts... and, for a while at least, you actually feel like you have your OWN place in Luxor.
