We are a new Bed & Breakfast in Jericho, Palestine. The property is beautiful and surrounded by an amazing garden; very peaceful place. As for us, we are a Palestinian family mixed with international spouses and in accordance with our social and cultural contract, we tend to spoil and look after our guests, so you should be in good hands. Among our close family members, English, French, Italian, Turkish, Hebrew and of course Arabic and its body language are very well spoken; so thorough communication should be no problem.
Minimum 3 week stay is required, and longer stays preferred.
Sometimes shorter periods are also available for last minute workawayers.

We need an extra pair of hands checking-in & out guests and maintaining the house clean and ready. No specific knowledge needed, only being a kind, trustworthy and hospitable person. We always serve breakfast to our guests with fresh ingredients from our garden , but as simple as it is, it wouldn't be hard to learn to prepare. Familiarity with laundry machines is also a plus, but again we can read the manual if we need to. Also familiarity with and comfort around hen coups and collecting fresh eggs is definitely a plus! Last but not least, some computer skills to follow up reservation info is normally required; yet again we can do away with a paper and pen. We need english as a basic language for communicating with the guests, but other european languages could also be useful.
Arabic, English, French, Turkish, Hebrew, Italian
Single bed in dormitory, couch, swing, mattress on balcony or wherever it would please you to stay. It also sometimes depends on the guests and room occupancy.
After learning your way around the sites in Jericho, you can offer to lead/join/show our guests around archaeological & religious sites, museums, parks, hiking trails and cycling routes. Cycling & Jericho go very well together. Jerusalem, Ramallah & The Dead Sea are within close driving distance. Jericho's peacefulness in general, and the property in particular make for a great environment for reading, music, relaxation, contemplation and meditation. Evening bonfire and tea is a habit. We also have a cat and a baby donkey as pets!
