Emmanuel was the perfect host from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. He made sure we were all comfortable and even went to get us shawarmas on our first night. As I'm vegetarian, he made me my own delicious cucumber salad with homemade pesto and tapenade. Emmanuel was available on his mobile at all times and suggested good places to go for brunch and drinks at night. Emmanuel's home is beautiful and you can tell he has spent a lot of time making it unique and full of character. Each room has a theme and is tastefully decorated. The beds were comfortable and essentials, such as towels, toothpaste, shampoo etc. were provided. Breakfast included baguettes, croissants, homemade cake and jams. Overall we had a lovely stay and would not hesitate to recommend this air bnb to anyone.

Emmanuel has been an execellent host, taking care of us even a week before our stay in his house to make sure everything will meet our expectations. He picked us up in the airport even cooked for us one day. He is a very social, friendly and extrovert person and the behavior of his dogs where excellent. My kids loved them! There is only one thing I missed... the location of the house is not in a walk distance from any appealing place. However, every place in Bahrain is relatively close by taxi.

Response from Emmanuel @:
Olga, thank you for your lovely message, it was great meeting you and your family. I didn't realise you would have walk somewhere with your baby and in laws with you, so i didn't suggest where to go by walk, but im actually 15 mnts away from the souk by walk. I didn't think you would have walked. Beside im in a such quiet area, that i won't like to be closer to crasy night life and traffic. For next time, keep in mind that im 10 mnts taxi from the great restaurants area,called Adlya. But ues you cannot walk. I hope to see you again. Thank you for your lovely visit. Emmanuel

Emmanuel is a fantastic host, going out of his way to make us all feel comfortable. He had thought of everything to make our stay as good as possible, and provided assistance above and beyond what's expected for a host. Superb hospitality! We feel like we made a friend in Emmanuel on our trip :-) The house is fantastic! So detailed and perfectly planned. Each room has its own en suite, there is a kitchenette for the rooms, and the beds are extremely comfortable! What an awesome stay! The 6 of us can't wait to come back :-D

I stayed with Emmanuel recently with some friends and some work colleagues and what a nice bloke he is. Every morning there was a lovely selection of breakfast's (his french toast is to die for) and the house itself is very homely with big bedrooms and bathrooms and we all felt very well looked after. We sat with Emmanuel on a few occasions and chatted about all sorts of things and came to realise quite quickly what an interesting person he was. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a relaxing time in a calmer part of Bahrain to stay here as it gives you a completely different feel to one we have had before. Hope to see you again Alex

Emmanuel was a great host. He made us feel welcome and the place was everything I hoped it would be. Thank-you, I would definitely book your place again!

Response from Emmanuel @:
Thank you Carlton. Yes indeed the navigator is not aligned with my street because my street has been cut in half and its not updated on maps, so the navigator sends you sometimes 1 street behind . The easiest is to follow my instructions from my airbnb page as I suggested, then its straightforward. Or even better , stay in touch by phone over your journey or inform us of arrival time and we can wait for you at the tricky junction.Emmanuel.

Very Dear Emmanuel, The first words are simply: "WOW, what an incredible host you are, certainly one of the best in your category !!" All your help before our welcoming is worthy to mention, as if you were doing it for your closest family and friends. Then what an excellent and warm welcoming you give us: before reaching the gate we felt at home in your marvelous house that I will resume with the following word: you can travel in 3 continents just through few steps (from Asia to South America passing by Europe). I have not seen such marvelous rooms with such a excellent taste in every details. Nothing is done randomly nothing :) All the products for the breakfast, shower, soap and so and forth are the best that are available in the market. And last but not least, what to say about our super host, except that he is a very valuable and remarkable person. He has helped us in various domain: shopping, advice and even administration and Letter correction. He was always at our disposal and at the same time very discreet. Surely if we are looking for a guest house in the future in Manamah, there is no choice but Emmanuel house. Every person should experiment such a nice experience. We recommend it ++++++ Please receive our very best regards from all the family

Emmanuel @ User ProfileEmmanuel @ is a superhost.

A quirky french artist, sharing his authentic 50's bahraini house , his own DIY antiques or restored fournitures, his homemade food, his healing hands, his hair salon, his 2 lovely dogs, his life stories and 20 years of experience in Bahrain. It's all ready a full programme !
With the sens of hospitality at his pick, and an obsessive hunt for details of comfort and intentions for over 7 years now.
Influenced by many things, such as a childhood in morroco in parents 5 stars hotel running experience, or an worldwide travelled executive chef brother, a passionate relationship with humain gender when it comes to energy, sharing, laughing, caring !!
With a second home in Sri Lanka, my life is full of colors, tests, ambiances, and opposite but yet matching souls surrending my "joie de vivre" !
