People tend to think about the types of activities and places they can go to as Eid approaches, and this always puts a lot of strain on them. Consider how fully occupied hotels will be during Eid, and how difficult it would be to relax and try something new due to the crowded venues! However, with so many possibilities to choose from all around the world, Airbnb is your savior in a circumstance like this. Our focus, however, will remain on the Middle East, which provides aesthetically beautiful settings that can easily accommodate you and your family or friends. We chose Airbnbs in Egypt, Jordan, and Morocco that will make your holiday all the more memorable and are in key locations. Therefore, here are five Airbnbs to consider for your Eid vacation.
Barefoot in Tunis
This Airbnb is part of the Barefoot in Tunis movement, which offers guests a unique combination of lodging styles. It is located in Tunis Village, Al Fayoum. They provide “simplified luxury” with a greater emphasis on a concern for the environment. This property sleeps three people and features air conditioning (hot and cold), a fully furnished kitchen, a private bathroom, a private heated plunge pool, a private deck and garden, and an outdoor fire pit. So, what distinguishes this Airbnb from the rest? Well, it’s the simplicity that brings nature and modernity together to create something that’s both relevant to our time and deeply rooted in our tradition. Even better, Airbnb’s location, Tunis Village, is full of activities that will have you interacting with the local people. The Egyptian artist Mohamed Abla, who manages the Fayoum Art Center, curates the caricature museum, which is a must-see there. The museum, which opened in 2009, strives to provide a location where caricatures can be displayed and given the respect and attention they deserve.
The cost of this Airbnb is only $128 per night, which is quite reasonable. Consider this: you’re being presented with one of the most unique lodging experiences you’ll ever have in Egypt. Past guests have described this lovely accommodation as a “hidden gem,” as it is conveniently located near major tourist sites. It may be little, but it has everything you need to make your stay super comfortable!
El Gouna, the Red Sea lagoon city also known as Egypt’s Venice, is the ideal place to unwind and get away from Cairo’s bustling noise and traffic. It is a city that has a unique selection of hotels and resorts that cannot be found anyplace else. But aren’t you tired of staying in the same hotels again and over? This is your opportunity to immerse yourself in a Nubian aesthetic found only in this Airbnb! This huge three-bedroom penthouse apartment is located in the newly built Water Side compound within El Gouna and has a fantastic location and outlook. The lagoon, pool, and Sliders Cable Park are all visible from the patio, bedrooms, and living area, which all have amazing views. It is also five to six minutes from the marina and downtown area, and directly adjacent to Sliders Water Sports Park, which includes a Floating Aqua Park, Wake Park, Restaurant, Lagoon Beach, Bar, Children’s playground, table tennis, and a swimming pool.
The Nubian artwork and objects that may be discovered in every corner of this apartment are much greater. The host is passionate about heritage and wishes to provide guests with a taste of Nubian aesthetics and art that will make their vacation a memorable experience. It’s a little pricey with the owner charging $524 per night.
Located in one of Egypt’s most attractive cities, with breathtaking natural beauty. Its name is a literal translation of the word gold in English. The city’s name is thought to have come from the area’s golden sand beaches. Another explanation is that the name comes from the way the sea water’s clarity and purity reflect a golden array of beauty. This wonderful Airbnb: Beit Theresa is a golden gem, dubbed “Nature Lovers Paradise” by the owners. The Airbnb is a collection of wonderfully-crafted, ethnic-style holiday rentals on the beach in Dahab. They are built with natural materials while combining modern convenience with old-style hospitality.
On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a seasonal fruit tray and fresh juice. Breakfasts are also carefully chosen, prepared, and served using seasonal and fresh products from the neighborhood market. In terms of cost, it’s a little pricey, but it’s well worth it! The owners have put a nightly fee of $316. For which, you’ll find three separate units: Fisherman’s Lodge, Tree House, and Stone Room, all of which are ideal for lone kiters/divers, young couples, or kiting/diving pals. From a fisherman’s lifestyle to a one-of-a-kind sea vista, all three cater to distinct preferences and interests!
The Beachfront Penthouse
We are also presenting you with the second choice from Dahab due to its awesomeness! This Airbnb offers a luxurious two-bedroom beachfront condominium with a private balcony on the Asala area’s coastline. Asala Market, the main local Dahab market with all the shops, is only a five-minute walk away. Aside from the bright sea scenery, what makes Dahab unique is the variety of activities available. Scuba diving lessons are available, as well as diving in the famed blue hole. You may also go kitesurfing or windsurfing, take a trip to Ras Abu Galum, where you can trek, rent a boat, or even join a camel safari!
This Airbnb, on the other hand, fits in perfectly with Dahab’s traditional building trend of brilliant colors and stone carvings. Also, you won’t find a better value than the owner’s $85 per night rate.
Islamic style villa
Offers a charming two-bedroom house on two levels that can accommodate up to four people. This authentic Islamic house, on a large private estate and a farm, is the perfect getaway from busy Cairo. The villa’s design shows off the authenticity of Islamic architecture along with it being built next to one of the most iconic touristic sites in the Governorate of Giza.
This Airbnb is located on the outskirts of the desert, a short distance from the Abusir pyramids. Thus, the Abusir pyramids may be seen from the balcony. The owners charge $60 per night for all of these benefits! Isn’t it incredible?! A laugh with a taste of Islamic architecture that can’t be found anyplace else.
Now that you have everything you need, be ready to start on a journey that will lead you to a vacation that will renew your spirit and provide you with a sense of serenity you never knew existed.
