I spent 2 nights at Aref's house- the room is spacious and clean like the rest of the house.
But what makes a stay at Aref so particular is his personality. He is so joyful and funny. Listening to his anecdotes will make you laugh and smile.
He loves his island and will make you discover it with enthusiasm and passion. Tours made at Qeshm and Hormuz Island where really great.
I would like also to thank his wife Shirine for the delicious Shrimp dish and the yummy breakfasts.
I would like also to add that you can also sleep in a traditional room for an immersive and authentic experience
Aref - KHEYLI MAMNUN for you hospitality and energy!
Me and my friend spent three days in Aref's house in September. Aref made our stay very pleasant. He's got good english skills and is very hard-working and cares about details.
Aref has a lot of knowledge and will surprise you with random curiosities every few minutes. He took us to some great attractions of Qeshm and Hormoz, and also was very flexible in terms of tours we've made. And what we did? We were riding a camel, a jetski, we rested on an empty and marvelous beach, we saw a great sunset, ate best sea food ever, went to see some caves, canyons mountains and - of course - the sea.
The room we've stayed in was very clean, nicely decorated, had an AC (must have on Qeshm) and was very spacious. Breakfasts were delicious.
The three days we've spent on Qeshm with Aref were definitely great.
We stayed for 3 nights at Aref Homestay in the hot month of June and had a great time. Aref has 2 rooms inside his house and a traditional room with private bathroom just outside all tidy and clean. We took a room inside and the AC was doing his job perfectly. A good breakfast was every morning served in the living room. Because Aref is born on the island he knows the island so besides the well known Geo-sides he also showed us some nice local spots like a shipyard, beach (swimming!) and places for lunch and diner. We did 2 days Qeshm and 1 day Hormuz and we certainly needed the time.
Aref is a good guide, speaks English well, drives safe and besides this all is a nice person to spend your days on the island. Aref will arrange anything to fullfill your wishes! Thanks again Aref!😀
