Beautiful big 1 bedroom villa (>100sq m) tucked away in the mountains, yet only 30 mins by car from the centre of Muscat. Fantastic, peaceful location, open views in all directions, large safe courtyard and roof terrace. Fully air conditioned. 10 min walk to the shop and the wadi. 20 min walk to the old village; 15-20 mins drive to the airport and easy access for exploring the rest of Oman.
We have 2 semi - detached villas. We live in one and the other is available for guests.
We have a large, safe, walled courtyard which is shared with us but apart from that each villa is self contained.
The villa is really spacious and all the rooms are large. There is a bright double bedroom with a private bathroom (shower only; no bath). It can accommodate one child on an inflatable mattress or small bed/cot. If you want access to the other bedroom, or you have more than one child, you must rent the whole villa. (See other listing; please let us know your requirements at the time of booking). It is an ideal place for families.
There is a large, fully equipped kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room and lounge area with access to a 3rd toilet. A stair leads to the private roof terrace - with extensive views in all directions.
The listed rental is for 1 double bedroom with ensuite shower room.
There is no washing machine in the guest villa, but you are welcome to use ours at any time.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests have access to the entire guest villa, but not the 2nd bedroom or our villa. You can come and go as you please. My husband works locally and I am around most days.
Atención a los huéspedes
We are happy to share our knowledge and experience of Oman or let our guests discover it for themselves. We expect guests to be self catering. We will provide a selection of food and drink to be available on your arrival.The villa is ideal for those who want some privacy but with support and advice next door!
Otros aspectos destacables
We have camping kit (cool box, mat, tent, chairs etc) which we are happy for you to use.
We have a baby's cot, booster chair and other assorted childrens' accessories!
Our neighbours are all Omani. We respect their traditions and customs by dressing modestly when in public view. However the roof terrace and courtyard are private and suitable for sunbathing.
There is no smoking in the villa or the courtyard
The internet is a 3G mobile service. (No cable). We will provide a 1day/1GB wifi dongle (which plugs into a USB port) and you can easily it top it up. There are often cheap SIM card packages for your phone available to visitors which are not available to residents and these are the cheapest way to access data here. You can buy these at the airport or border but must be Ooredoo as Omantel does not have a service in our villa.
My husband and I have lived in Oman on and off since 1984, so we know it well and like to share it with others. We enjoy the simpler side of life here which is why we have chosen to live away from the rush of Muscat city. I enjoy cooking, gardening, cycling (but not in the summer) and camping in the more remote parts of the country.
