Did we mention By The Lemon Tree is not a hotel and there is no breakfast on Friday?

Do let us know what time you are planning on arriving By The Lemon Tree so we may meet you at the gate.

For obvious reasons, keep the outside gate closed at all times and arrange to meet visitors or drivers at the gate rather than have them ring the bell

HEELS!!!!! are a particularly sticking point with residents… walk softly when wearing heels and keep voice levels down after hours throughout the building

We use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to communicate with our current and former guests on various things. In particular, on our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page you can find ideas on what to do in Webdeh or Jordan, where to eat and how to order room service:

Pay attention to the keys we give you
When keys are lost we must change the locks to the main access doors

Consult the “Notes” section on our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page. Attention!!! The page we have created is the "community" page. There are 2 other pages that have cropped up but we have no control over.

Only upon reservation by Friday 12pm - Other than your usual eggs, sausage and bacon preparations, this is our opportunity to showcase some traditional recipes derived mostly from the Italian repertoire with other specialties thrown in for good measure. Prosecco flows liberally too of course – By The Lemon Tree guest rate is JD30 per person all inclusive.

Other than for the occasional evening drink served in our home upon invitation, residents are asked not to enter the ground floor house unannounced not least because our four legged friend will not take kindly to the unexpected visit - breakfast is served in the common area.

As a general rule, be mindful of other guests particularly early in the morning and late at night but especially on Saturday morning till 10:30am as most people try to sleep in on their day off.

Place luggage, or anything that is routinely placed on the floor, on the beds
Place towels on the floor – you may instead ask for more mats if required
Smoke in your room not least because there are annoyingly loud smoke detectors installed
Eat crumbly food in your room – help us keep pests at bay and the sheets clean
Hang laundry to dry on the roof terrace. If you don’t like the dryer ask for hangers to use in your bathroom

Turn off the a/c and the lights when you leave a/your room if nobody else is there
Use the beach towel provided when using the sun beds
Pick up that cigarette butt you inadvertently flicked unto the sidewalk by the main gate
Leave the key on the door upon checking out

In Jabel Webdeh, water is distributed only once a week on Wednesday night. Wednesday night and Thursday till 3pm is when you want to take long showers
Any other day of the week, do pay attention to the amount of water you use
!!! Pay particular attention to toilets that may run after flushing. If you are unable to stop the flow of water, shut off the toilet water supply (lower left hand side of toilet) and call us. !!!

On the second floor there is a common area for the enjoyment of all resident guests. Here you can make coffee and tea and you have a washing machine, a dryer, cooking and dining facilities as well as a small lounge covered by Wi-Fi. Although like all common parts of the building we clean this area daily, you are asked to keep these premises clean and in order for the enjoyment of anyone making use of it after you. This is particularly the case after 3pm as our staff begin to leave.

Washing machine
There are filters at floor level on the front panel that require verification and cleaning after five uses of the machine. DO NOT stuff clothes into or take them out of the machine in one ball
To avoid damaging the rubber seal in the door, do not place in or take out laundry in bulk

There are filters in the door and in the lower lip of the drum that require cleaning from lint after every use
Dryer filters are made of mesh. Wipe gently with your fingers without pressing too hard on the mesh
The condensation drawer must be emptied after each use. It is located on the top left hand corner of the machine
Do not stuff the drum full of clothing. Allow enough room for clothes to tumble in the drum when drying

All rooms are equipped with central heating. Moreover, all rooms have a split unit that can be used for cooling or heating. Particularly during winter, you can use the split unit to compensate or regulate the temperature in your room. Use the remote control to select cooling/heating function and set the desired temperature. NB: The unit can take a few minutes to start.

Press the “source or input” button to choose
•Video 2 (input 2) – is connected to the satellite receiver offering a range of free to air satellite channels
•TV – Is connected to the perimeter cameras monitoring the outskirts of the building
•OSN Satellite TV is available in the common area – you can consult the program schedule (EMAIL HIDDEN) under “schedules”

There are 4 Wi-Fi routers:

USE THE BEACH TOWELS PROVIDED WHEN USING THE SUN BEDS. The light switch is by the door that leads to the common staircase. The roof is a common area used by tenants in the building. You are asked to keep it neat and in order for the enjoyment of everyone.

Do remember that breakfast is not served on Friday

A note about reviews in the public domain - Should you be inclined to leave a positive review on Tripadvisor or (URL HIDDEN) we would rather you did not. If you enjoyed your stay with us, we would prefer you “Like” our (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) page instead. Use public fora only for constructive criticism so we can both have a go at each other with witty if insolent remarks that will amuse the peanut gallery. In liking our Fecebook page, make sure you use the “community” page rather than the other 2 pages that have cropped up and of which we have no control.

There were many fantastic reviews of this residence when I came across it on AirBnB and this is a confirmation that By the Lemon Tree does live up to it's reputation. I was delighted to experience nearby a organic fresh juice place around the corner called We Farm and also to try the extremely helpful recommendations such as Joz Hind restaurant in the house manual. While staying here you will feel safe and it is very convenient for walking to Rainbow Street or the other cafes and restaurants nearby off Paris Circle. The breakfast is excellent with several options, fresh, healthy and tasty. You really feel at home when you stay here in a way you certainly wouldn't if you stayed at a hotel. The staff are also incredibly warm and helpful and everything here is clean and fresh. This place is awesome and deserves all the rave reviews it has received. Thank you to all at By the Lemon Tree!

Guido User ProfileGuido is a superhost.

Of Italian origin, I have been in Jordan for some years now where, by pure chance, I now run a quirky guesthouse.

Debate and discussion seems to be a leitmotif at By The Lemon Tree where, should you decide to engage in conversation, you should be prepared to hear arguments that will either conflict with or alter your perception of what you feel your role is or should be in the great scheme of things

If we do our job correctly, you will leave By The Lemon Tree questioning your entire existence

If that does not put you off, then do know that other than your usual bipeds, we also have several quadrupeds of varying sorts pinging around the house.

If you opt to join the Saturday brunch that we sometimes host at The Winemaker, we will offer you the usual fare plus, more unusually for this region of the world, bacon and, more often than is probably sensible, Prosecco along with St George wine that is produced here in Jordan.

Debate and discussion is encouraged and it often goes on till the wee hours of the morning particularly when ethylically induced

Topics range from discussing the advantage or otherwise, of placing the leading edge of the toilet paper to unfold from underneath or over the top of the roll, to sophisms on metacognition and general Quantum Pontification on Mental Onanism

There is something for everyone By The Lemon Tree as too, there are comfortable beds, daily housekeeping, lavish showers* and decadent brunches

What you will not find By The Lemon Tree however, are maps of the country or telephone land lines. Prepare accordingly

Remember! We are not in the business of managing people's sensitivities. If you cannot stand the heat, there is no shade By The Lemon Tree for you

And, yes! I do make liberal use of the royal "we"
