Oman villa description

As-Sahala Estate and Gardens is not your ordinary holiday rental. What you have the opportunity to experience here is a fully enclosed and private Estate encompassing multiple hectares of gardens with a spacious 3 bedroom vacation villa, movie theater, heated pool, BBQ area, high speed Internet access, basketball court, children play area and a fully working farm including farm animals and staff! This is the perfect place for a comfortable and quiet holiday near Muscat with family or friends.
Some of our guests have called this the most beautiful vacation they have ever been on. Interested? Read on...

As-Sahala Estate and Gardens is located 20 minutes from the Seeb/Muscat airport, 15 minutes from 2 major shopping centers (one of them a huge Carrefour where food and supplies are available at low prices), and if you prefer to eat out, you will find a choice of great restaurants and classy coffee shops in the center of Muscat.

The Estate is a gated and walled compound containing four fields skirted by tarmac roads with manicured landscaping and trees. This provides an ideal environment for evening strolls or bicycling away from city traffic. The caretaker and 2 farm workers live in a bungalow by the main gate and are responsible for our guest's complete safety and comfort. Cows, goats, peacocks, and hens (far enough not to wake you up) are located in pens in the same area. The villa with pool, in which you will stay, is located in the opposite corner of the compound, so that total privacy is assured.

The villa is recently built and features a kitchen and utility room, a main lounge (sitting 12 people) and dining room (sitting 8) and sleeping quarters consisting of a master bedroom with Queen size bed and a private bath, a secondary bedroom with 2 single beds and a private bath, and a third bedroom with 2 single beds and a bath down the hall. The hallway contains 2 additional sleeper seats, so that the house can sleep 8 comfortably. A baby cot will be provided upon request.

At the end of the villa is another lounge area, the Arabic Majlis, where the antique furniture shows the spirit of Omani traditions. This area is adjoined by a home movie theater with digital sound. The villa also contains 2 separate showers and bathrooms accessible from outdoors, serving as a pool-house or while entertaining outdoors.

Speaking of outdoors, the gardens, which are visible from nearly every room in the villa, feature several sitting area (terraces) which can be used for entertaining or dining, as well as a traditional Omani carpeted sitting area, ideal to enjoy summer nights with the family. A digital outdoor sound system helps you set the mood.

The caretaker will clean the gardens of any fallen leaves, and broom the terraces daily, usually long before you wake up in the morning.
At this point, you will be wondering: who else lives in what could easily be a small village? The entire Estate contains a single vacation villa which you will be staying in, and besides the caretaker and 2 farm workers, which are very discrete and live at the other end of the property, nobody else will disturb your vacation in this Omani paradise!

As-Sahala Estate also provides children with a unique vacation experience unlike any other : the pool features a child section, and the gardens lead to a private basketball court as well as a private children play area (with more equipment than some city parks, as you can see in the pictures)! Children can also take a stroll around the paved roads of the Estate with no risk of being hurt by cars, and love petting the goats and cows, and can even help milking and picking eggs in the morning. Milk and eggs can also be delivered to you in the morning upon request to the caretaker.

It is recommended, although not strictly necessary, to rent a car. The owner (Rashid) will then provide ideas for daily excursions including beautiful deserted beaches, old Omani mountain towns, markets and souks and more.
