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.
From the street door you enter the courtyard where you will find comfortable seating. From the courtyard you can acces all the downstairs rooms and the living space. The living space is a big room with open kitchen, a cozy fireplace, a couch unit, a dining area and through an arch you can enter the beduin lounge with floor cushion and carpets.
The roofs are flat and has private hang out spots and a beautiful view of the village and the palm and olive groves.
As a guest you have acces to two double rooms and one single room downstairs and one double and one single room upstairs. Nobody else is staying in the house but some rooms are closed for storage.
