About this listing
In the lofty heights of Al Qurum you will find the opulent sourounds of R.E.Versailles.
You will be welcomed with the little extras & comforts of a Boutique hotel along with stunning views over our pretty city Muscat from the decadent roof terrace.
I have taken pleasure in is creating a special environment with all the little touches whilst still providing the comforts of home giving you options of using the space as your own or as a B and B.
The property can be rented 3 bedroom currently or I can reduce the price for use of the ensuite bedroom only.
This has its own gazebo balcony.
The roof terrace is spacious and the space has been created for relaxing chill out mornings or to enjoy a sundowner watching the city lights take over from our beautiful sunsets.
Overall R.E.Versailles is very comfortable and truly relaxing whilst remaining a stones throw from all you would wish to explore Muscat.
Guests have full access to my home, kitchen, gas cook top, oven, laundry facilities, outdoor facilities, wifi and local calls can be made.
An additional fee is required if you wish to book sole use of the property without myself onsite and this is at my discretion . (Security deposit required)
This property is not geared for toddlers or very young children as there are stairs but if you are still interested I have a low cot (as seen in the photos) available if you are confident in the environment.
Interaction with guests
I shall be present on site throughout your stay unless the whole house has been booked for private use at an extra cost.
I am as visible as you wish but do work locally, long and odd hours so contact re requests are easily made and your privacy respected.
I do however enjoy meeting new people and socialising if time allows.
I also have a new addition to the family that is a 8 month old Saluki puppy. She is an out door dog except at night. but is allowed in the house when I am home.
She is learning to socialise but can be a little nervous until she gets used to you.
What I love about my neighbourhood is the fact that culture, religion and historical tradition is right on my doorstep and it is your choice how much influence you have and at what level of interaction you wish.
It is a city full of honor and tradition, the people are humble but proud. They are excitedly moving with the times whilst maintaining a relaxed pace of life.
It is rather a pleasure to be surrounded by such.
R.E Versailles is about 30 minutes from the airport depending on traffic.
From home you are 5 minutes from Shatti and Muscat City where you will find the restaurants, cafes, cinema and our illustrious Royal Opera House.
You are 15 minutes from Mutrah and the port, the souks and the historical sites.
It is suggested if you are here for more than a couple of days that you hire a car. Easily done. There is a tour bus that can take you on a site seeing tour but otherwise the only format of transport is by cab.
A cab can be called from numbers supplied at villa or in most cases they can be picked up very close.
My Driver is also offered to those that wish to tailor their trips around town and wish for the security of a confident cab driver with good english. He will charge accordingly and this would be for you to negotiate.
Other things to note
Your trip to Muscat should be a special one and I shall endeavour to make your stay comfortable and restful.
I am lucky to have lovely neighbours and a pleasant interactive neighbourhood which is very local orientated. You will hear the calls to prayer from the mosque as you will in most parts of the city, you will hear the children playing in the lane after school, and you will find a special city oasis in the Qurum Heights hills of Muscat.
And a final thing to note, my neighbourhood is accepting of westerners ways but as it is a predominantly Muslim environment, respect and personal discretion in all external property interactions is expected.
I have a local Omani driver that can assist you around the city and sights or do full day trips.
Guests may be approved upon prior request.
All parties or events must be booked in advance.
Security deposits will be required on all exclusive bookings or bookings with events.
