Directly on the Beach, set back from the road, watch the sea from the courtyard and listen to the waves. Bait Rashid is the renovated former home of an Omani family, still living nearby. Private courtyard and roof terrace. Located in the traditional fishing village of Qantab, 10 minutes from the old Muttrah Souq and all Muscat attractions. Easy access to all highways leading to the interior and the coast. See Oman - return to your spacious cottage on the Beach. Private parking.
“Quiet, well located (but you’ll need a car) and well looked after property. Lovely open area to use to sit outside. And it’s seconds from the beach. Qantab is a working fishing village and it’s a friendly place. Regula has compiled a folder with lots of good recommendations for things to do in and around Muscat, and places to eat.”
It is a room with a bathroom and a preparatory kitchen in the villa. The villa consists of eight rooms with bathrooms and all rooms with a small preparatory kitchen There is a villa courtyard open three sides away from the beach three hundred meters five minutes walk to the beach.
“Although Qantab is considered part of Muscat, you can only get there by taxi. However, according to Muscat, it seems only by car you can move around, public transport is not visible there, as well as pedestrians. :) The owner Ahmed was very kind. He allowed us to settle right in the morning, so we immediately went to watch the sea while the girl cleaned the room. We felt completely safe. Ahmed kindly took us to the tourist office in the evening in the city, bought a SIM card and advised an interesting Omani restaurant. It makes sense to buy an Omani SIM card in order to call a cheap taxi using the OTAXI program. Well, or rent a car there. The roads are beautiful. The beach in Qantab is small, but local fishermen in the morning for 15 reais will be taken to neighboring deserted sandy bays and you will be there like Robinsons. They will pick you up in as many hours as you wish. Take at least 5 hours at once! - there it is interesting to look at fish and crabs along the rocky shores. Unfortunately, in the village we found only 2 C0fe-Shop? where you can only eat American food (burgers and chips and Coca-Cola) is cheap. But you can cook on the tiles in the apartment or go to a restaurant. Muscat has a lot of fish, order sharks or cuttlefish or mackerel ... The house (private. For a family but looks like a mini hotel) is magnificent! Everything is new, beautiful bed, hot water. You will be awakened by the singing of birds in the neighboring palm grove and prayer from the mosque, and surround the dark mountains. There is not much green there, everything is under watering, all around there are only stones. And the sun! and very deserted. Recommended with all my heart!”
Enjoy outstanding Sea View. Experience the typical omani traditional fishing village. Coral apartment is located in Haramel village which is nested between the mountains and seabed. It is at the heart of Muscat which is sited between the Al Bustan Palace and Al Alam Palace. The people of Haramel refuse to quit fishing as a profession in which they were born and grew up with. They still deal with the alphabets of the repair of fishing nets in language that residents of Haramel only understand.
“If you want to experience the "real" Muscat, this is it! The fishing village is enchanting. We loved the balconies; falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the waves. It was lovely to watch the families interacting with one another at dusk..so peaceful and beautiful. The apartment was very roomy and comfortable...the beds very comfortable...everything you need. Muscat is only a short 5 minute drive away and only a 2 minute drive away is the pier where you can go out on fishing boats or sightseeing boats or sit at a wonderful cafe on the water. Mohamad was a wonderful host; communication was impeccable and he was so kind and helpful. Don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed.”
