It's like coming home to be in Marwans place. The big house has everything (and more) then you need. A fully equipped kitchen (with breakfast (but you also can say lunch and snacks for the rest of the day)!) , very spacious house, a nice bathroom, aircon/ heaters, wifi, it's clean, you can sit in and outside, there is cosiness and so much more. Marwan is the best host ever and makes it all happen. He can be your guide as well or can arrange a friend as guide. We had (again) a Wonderful stay at Marwans place. Also our kids love the place and the neighborhood. In walkable distance there is a market street, St George church, John Baptist church, etc. and a lot of restaurants. The house is situated in a very quiet christian neighborhood with nice neighbors. Highly recommanded.

It's a big house with everything in it, you can wish for: it's spacious, big, there is breakfast included, mineral water, it's in a quiet place in a christian neighbourhood with kind people as neighbours, close to tourist attractions (marwan is also an official tour(ist) guide), lovely interior, etc. We will be back next month :-) Marwan and family, thank you very much for your warm welcome and your excellent way of hosting us.

Peppel and her gorgeous happy family had added an extra blessing to us. They were so polite, kind, and very very clean, We would be very lucky to have them again anytime, and they are always welcome to "Beit Shuwayhat Heritage House".

We had a wonderful time and Marwan was a great host. We had never visited Jordan and arrived at night but he was very responsive and available to guide us to his home. Home was located in great spot for walking to many of the local historic Christian church sites. Home was also spacious and Marwan even helped make our breakfast arrangements. Home looks like it does in the pictures and is historic and great. He also made arrangements for a colleague of his to provide us a tour, which was fantastic, ending the day at Mt. Nebo. This was very special as we had never visited this area before. Both our guide (Tony) and Marwan are well established men of their community who know the area incredibly well and provide a sense of the area history. Overall, a wonderful experience and very happy to have made the connections with these wonderful people. Definitely trustworthy and I would pick them again for any future tours. One note for travelers....we drove from the the airport to Madaba at night. City is historic and densely populated. Our maps app got us very close to the home but we needed assistance for the final 200 meters.

I'm not sure which is better: the accommodation or Marwan himself. Madaba Beit is lovely, three very clean beds with a fine kitchen, living room etc. lovely area nestled in a friendly Christian community within walking distance of great restaurants and most churches. Marwan himself was so helpful and showed us around Mt. Nebo and Madaba, helped us on our way to Petra and bought us breakfast and drinks. Stay here if you can. 10 out of 10.

I have studied Mathematics in Wrexham, North wales,UK. Also got a degree in Electronic Engineer from Devry, Chicago. I served in the Jordanian army for two years at the General Headquarter, Amman. After doing this compulsory service, i had worked as service Engineer, installing and servicing Bio-medical and Laboratory Equipment for almost 10 years. During that time i had traveled to Germany, Greece and Japan for several service training courses. Also, i had been involved for many years in Light Decoration Systems for wedding parties at private Villas. Now a day, i work as a freelancer tour guide in the Country of Jordan. I have been working as a General Tour Guide since 2009, and i just love it. It's an interesting kind of job, moving around, and meeting English speaking people coming from all over the world. I escort them, help them and give them the related information for such particular Historical or Religious site. As a tour Guide, i have learnt how to bring Joy and Happiness to people. Therefore, i managed to gain friendship with celebrities, modest personnels, and lovely guests from the USA, UK, Australia, Israel, Canada, Finland, China, Indonesia, Philippine, Burma, Malaysia, Japan, and Hong Kong.
