We have been staying here a couple of times and have made it a tradition to come back. The house is situated on the mountain with a breathtaking view over Beirut and the sea. The sunsets are enjoyed on one of the terraces (the house has several cosy outdoor seating areas!) and the hosts who live just next door are always so friendly and available to assist with anything we need during our stay!
Shemlan is definitely a great alternative to stay if you like to be close to buzzing Beirut but also needs that laid back vacation vibe!
Besides that, the house is a walk away from a few great restaurants and little shops!
We enjoyed a really wonderful stay for one week in April in this stylish and modern guesthouse situated in the mountain village of Shemlan with breathtaking views down to the Mediterranean Sea and Beirut. We really appreciated the warm welcome we received from our international hosts Jane and Aneese.. They were very helpful at all times. The beautiful guesthouse was really well set up, in immaculate condition with every attention to detail paid to ensure a comfortable stay. The private garden and terrace gave us plenty of opportunity to relax and enjoy our surroundings. We came away having really enjoyed our visit to Lebanon and looking forward to our next stay at Casa Mia and Shemlan.
