Not only is the place fantastic, but Chris and Lorna will make your stay in Oman perfect. For me, they planned a perfect trip to the rest of the country: arranged for my transportation and accommodation along the way, and made sure I was ok all along. Chris did this, I have to say, without any travel company fee, saving...

I've just got back from an overnight trip in the desert that was both cost-effective (especially compared to many of the options out there) and exactly what I was looking for. Chris and his son Josh are incredibly well informed on the best trips, places to visit, boat journeys, desert stays etc. Everyone else I spoke to offered their prices...

Chris and his team were very helpful on our short visit to Oman from Dubai. We got great directions on how to get there and the room was very clean and comfortable. Lots of great info, look forward to visiting again to enjoy a camping trip or the dolphin watching. Also loved the rooftop and the pool table.

Had a brilliant stay with Chris in Muscat then 2 fantastic nights in his appartment in Al Sifah. Beautiful part of the world, so relaxing and outstanding accomodation. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Families, couples or even on your own. If you are lucky enough to be in Muscat on a Friday you may even be lucky enough...

Chris organised a rental 4x4 for us, all the camping equipment, a room for the last night and gave us heaps of helpful information. But more than that, he and his family and staff and dogs are all fantastic hosts. Thank you, we hope to be back.
