Interaction with guests

The place is like a home away from home. Emmanuel's place is a good selection. I love the way he had the interior design, most especially the elephant statue in the bedroom.

Emmanuel's place is an array of colors and and scents. It is a relaxing atmosphere that provides everything the wandering traveler may need. There are options for airport pickup, utensils for eating, comfortable and clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Emmanuel, himself, is very engaging and inviting. He seems to be a very bus, multitalented, person, but he will still make time in between to converse with you. The house has everything you need. Outside, you have options in the neighborhood that are within walking distance. This is one place in Bahrain that I would actually come back to. There are too many places in Bahrain that offer such an experience. It's not sterile and bland like many other places that also come with a higher price tag. If you want to enjoy a creatively fresh, relaxing, and invigorating place... Try Emmanuel's spot..... It's well worth it.

Staying at Emmanuel is an amazing experience by itself. The place is very clean, rooms are large, well decorated and very very comfortable. By far this was the most amazing AirBnB experience of my life because of Emmanuel. Truly a Super Duper Host Emmanuel is a great communicator, dedicated and passionate about helping his guests. He will go out of his way to make sure you are happy and comfortable. I highly recommend this host and his place and It is my hope that many guests experience this and likewise that AirBnB hosts live through his example. Amazing experience
