Traditional Siwi house which was renovated from the ruins of the old Shali fortress (where the siwi people used to live).

It comprises of 4 bedrooms, which can accommodate up to 9 people but you are also free to rent only one room. There is some common areas for all: kitchen, bathroom and the terrace which you can use as your smoking area because smoking is not allowed in the house and where you can lit up the fireplace and enjoy the quietness and positive energy of the place

The space

This house has been furnished with love, where everything is new and eco-friendly following the Siwi traditions, in summer because of the stones of the fortress, you don't even feel that much heat but nonetheless I have fans for the comfort of my guests.

To get to the place, there's a short a walk but I will always be waiting for you to guide you to the place

I would appreciate you deal with my place like your own and keep it well maintained for everyone else who wishes to visit.

My place offers only accommodation, for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner, kindly let me know in advance to do the required preparations.

Guest access

As a service, I am also happy to organize any activities and tours you may want to enjoy in Siwa, such as: Desert Safari, Dune boarding, swimming in the different springs and Cleopatra pool, tours in the oasis, shopping in the old souk...

Interaction with guests

I am always available in Siwa, and I can be reachable very easily. I will be happy to meet & greet you in the old Shali town and escort you and give you a quick tour on the ins and outs of my place.

Dalia is a fantastic host. She made us feel welcome and helped us have a great holiday by organising trips and giving us great recommendations. She is very good at communicating and check-in, check-out was completely stress-free. The house was just what we were looking for. It's very clean and has all of the modern appliances needed for a comfortable stay. The decor is beautiful and the location within Shali is perfect for exploring the area and venturing out to the lakes. I will recommend staying with her to all my friends and will hopefully visit again myself sometime. We would like to thank you for all your help and the great holiday!

My name is Dalia, I am originally from Upper Egypt then I moved to Cairo where I lived at least 10 years before I discover Siwa Oasis. Initially I used to go there as part of medical convoy as part of my charitable and humanitarian activities until I decided that this should be my place.

This decision came from the warmth and friendliness I have seen and witnessed among the Siwi people, basically they made it feel like home, in addition to the many beauties of this place which I could not resist and took it as my haven.

I really wish you come visit us in Siwa to see for yourself what I am talking about :) I would be more than happy to accomodate all your travel needs, be it relaxation, chilling or involving activities and tours

PS: My preferred language is arabic but we won't fail to communicate, so don't worry about this :)
