The Malkata House is a beautiful domed villa on the edge of the desert, located between the Temple of Medinat Habu and the Malkata Palace, from the shared lounge and roof terrace you have a phenomenal view of the desert and the mountains.

In the villa there are 3 apartments, this apartment is on the top floor.

Optionally, my chef can cook for you in the villa and my Egyptology guide is ready for you if you are interested in tours to the sights.

The space
From the shared lounge area on the top floor you have access to a small private hall with a bedroom on either side and the bathroom in the middle. Both bedrooms have a comfortable double bed, a dressing table and a spacious wardrobe. Under the dressing table there is a mini fridge and there is a kettle for a cup of tea or coffee in the room. The bathroom has a shower, toilet and sink.

The shared lounge on the first floor has various sitting areas with TV, dining table and a large open kitchen.
On the roof there is a beautiful (shared) terrace where you can enjoy the fantastic view of the desert.

On the ground floor there is a terrace and on the side of the building you will find the washing machine (and drying racks / iron / ironing board).

My private chef can cook for you in the shared lounge area (for a fee). You can let him know every day what and when you like to eat. He can prepare fantastic local dishes for you and he can also take dietary requirements into account (such as gluten-free and vegan).
A security guard is present day and night in the villa.

We also organize all trips in and around Luxor, my guides are the best Egyptology guides you can find in Luxor (read the reviews in my profile to read the experiences of other guests).

I was born and live in Luxor Egypt, but I also lived in the Netherlands for years. I have a few companies (in Egypt: IN LUXOR apartments and tours, Nobles Art Gallery, Far and Beyond Travel and in the Netherlands: Nour Lifestyle). In my spare time I like horse riding in the desert, I have 2 stallions (named Baraka and Shaier) who live behind the Malkata House (1 of my rentable villa / apartments on Airbnb). I am also interested in art and antiques and I enjoy visiting museums.
