About this listing
Home directly on the beach in Muscat's most refined, enjoyable neighborhood. Elegantly furnished with fantastic sea views & a big garden that opens onto the beach.
Near cafes, restaurants and Royal Opera. Perfect holiday spot.
We're fortunate that the house is in a fantastic location in the center of Muscat's best neighborhood, AND right on the beach. So if you're on vacation, you have easy access to Muscat's best spots as well as enjoying the beach while at home.
You can relax inside the house and enjoy the great views from the salon, dining room or bedrooms, or simply step outside and go for a swim or take a stroll on the sandy beach.
Guests will have access to all areas of the house and garden.
Interaction with Guests
Arabs take hospitality rather seriously :-).
Furthermore, I own a local travel agency and hence can advise you on excursions and help you with further arrangements.
Even if I am personally unavailable at the time of your visit, I will try my best to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Best beach in Muscat.
Other Things to Note
While we respect everyone's right to his personal lifestyle choice, we are a conservative Muslim family. Hence, kindly note that we look forward to hosting married couples, families, groups of friends and single travelers.
Some house rules to follow please:
- No smoking inside the house.
- No street shoes inside.
- Special instructions for children:
If you have children, please pay attention that upon coming from the beach they wash the beach sand off their feet using the water tap outside the house before coming inside, they don't sit with their wet swimming suits on the sofas and don't eat on the salon sofas etc.
Just the normal things you would take care of in your own home :-)
About the Host, Ali
There are those who value form, and those who value function.
Those who look for both, together in conjunction.
Some seek falcon rare, some long for sparrow sweet.
Some truthful in their search, some falter in deceit.
Some seek the fair maiden, although her soul be mute,
Others know that magic, may linger in a flute.
I look for that which binds, all mentioned here above,
The thread of light that weaves, the quilt of endless love,
The breath of air which rattles, the petal in its rose,
And gives the dawn its light, and turns word into prose.
The secret of beginnings, that lead to final scenes,
Where good prevails beyond, its very modest means.
I seek not form or function, nor shallow is my quest.
I seek the only answer, to each and every test.
The gist of the story, told by the mermaid queen,
To the lonely sailor, the last time he was seen.
And what the bee did leave, the Lilly in return,
For telling honey's secret, when bee for sweetness yearn.
I seek what lovers see when, they gaze unto the moon,
What makes a timing perfect, and not too late or soon.
In Arabic plain and simple, I seek Beauty where,
She hides in tender meaning, or shines in pompous flair.
