Great check-in experience90% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Welcome to Petra, in Jordan! I'm Awwad, a Bedouin from the village of Uum Sayhoun just next to Petra.
My house has three bedrooms, a spacious living room & fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom has hot water. Come enjoy the Bedouin experience! I can help you explore the capital of the Nabateans, & organize a traditional Bedouin barbeque under the stars. Meanwhile return to the comfort of real beds.
Come as a guest, leave as a friend!
