This house is a real family house, created by a Danish family who built and lived in the house for several years. Its organic and spacious, in the middle of the buzzling oasis but still private and calm.
It's curious and playful in its architecture and has lots of secret hang out spots around the house. In the cold desert nights, light the big fireplace and settle on the comfortable couch.
The house is located next to the Shali lodge, a five minute palm tree sheltered walk from center of town.
