Luxury Villa Overlooking the Dead Sea
Luxury Villa overlooking the Dead Sea
Vacation on the shores of the legendary Dead Sea! This majestic home is located on a hill directly at The Dead Sea - 378 below sea level. The property, surrounded mostly by rugged landscape, enjoys a great panoramic vista of sea and arid mountain views.
Inside the home, on the main floor you'll find a large kitchen with a breakfast area, a dining room with a table that seats 8, and a living and entertainment room with a large wall-mounted flat screen TV. The first of the three bedrooms has a king size bed and desk area. The second bedroom has a four poster queen bed, and the third bedroom has two twin size beds. Two additional sitting areas both contain a flat screen TV and comfortable furniture for lounging.
Outside, you'll discover the highlight of this home that makes it so special. Head outside to the patio to find a gorgeous outdoor lounge area that has both open and covered space as well as a dining area for gathering and watching the sunset. For an even better view, ascend to the balcony. Beside this space you'll find a kids' playground, park benches, and picnic tables. Follow the stone path that winds through the beautifully landscaped yard and surrounding property down to the pool deck. There are several lounge areas by the large pool, all covered to provide cool shade. The views of the Dead Sea from this spot are absolutely incredible! You won't find a better home to accommodate your visit to the Holy Land of Jordan.
This home is located a 45 min drive from Queen Allia International Airport. Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a 35 minute drive from the property and features historic sites and a great selection of food and entertainment options.
5 star hotels are located within just a 10 min walking distance or 2 min drive (Marriott, Mövenpick, Kempenski, Hilton, and Crown Plaza). There is also a small shopping mall (Samarah Mall) close by that houses a few resturants and a mini market that provides basic necessities.
Many attractions are within a "day trip" driving distance.
The Baptism Site of Jordan (also called Bethany Beyond the Jordan or Al-Maghtas) is only 10 minute drive away. Situated in a pristine natural environment, this UNESCO archaeological world heritage site is believed to be the location where Jesus of Nazareth was baptized by John the Baptist. It features Roman and Byzantine remains including churches and chapels, a monastery, caves that have been used by hermits, and pools in which baptisms were celebrated. Wadi Al Mujib (another UNESCO protected world heritage site) with its wonderful water falls is also just a 10 min drive away.
A 20 minute drive will lead you to Mount Nebo, a high mountain located in Madaba, Jordan, where the oldest mosaic floor of the early Byzantine church of Saint George is located. The Mai'in Hot Springs, a series of hot mineral springs and waterfalls, is located between Madaba and the Dead Sea, is a 45 minute drive away and the famous Evason Ma'In Resort and Six Senses Spa can be reached in 30 minutes from the home. The famous City of Petra is 3 hours away from the house. Nicknamed "the Rose City," Petra is accessed via a narrow canyon and features tombs and temples carved into the pink sandstone cliffs. Most other historic attractions are within an hour or two driving distance.
As Jordan is an affordable country to visit, daily housekeeping and a driver can be arrange for guests at very reasonable prices. Please enquire upon your reservation if you are interested in these optional services.

Beautiful home and amazing views.
We had a fantastic and relaxing week stay at this villa overlooking the Dead Sea. We were at the house during a very large storm and did experience a few issues with water, electricity, and internet. Fortunately, the very friendly caretaker addressed them quickly. The owner was also easily available and sent his driver to meet us at 2 a.m. at the airport. As the designer and manager of our own vacation home on a Caribbean Island with power and water issues and in a very harsh environment we appreciated how well this house is cared for and how quickly the issues were addressed. The location was a great base for exploring Jordan - we went as far north as Umm Quai on a day trip. Jerash is unforgettable. The day trip to Madaba was easy and very interesting. We swam in the Dead Sea two different days and ate at the mall below often as well as cooked at the house a few times. We loved Jordan and loved coming home to the views and comfort of this property. ”
Pro’s: Absolutely amazing grounds which are beautifully landscaped and accompanied by a lovely private pool. The grounds and the pool are well tended to by the gardener who lives in the house just down the hill. The house is stunning – so very beautiful inside and out. The stone work is fantastic. I loved that the owner provided simple things like lots of bottled water, spices, teas, etc. Greatly appreciated the owner had a car pick us up from the airport. Kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans. The area is just amazing to tour. You really must tour these areas, each deserves 1 day: Petra The Citadel and downtown Ammon Jerash Umm Ar-Rasas Mövenpick Resort & Spa – purchase a day pass and spend the afternoon floating in the dead sea, covering your body with the mud and enjoying the pool area afterwards. The people are so wonderful – they are there to help and are all very good. There is a mall with restaurants down the street (15 minute walk away). It is also a great place to get a driver or catch an Uber. Con’s: The huge/lovely master bedroom has next to no light after the sun goes down. Just simple colored lamps – one on each side of the bed. The overhead lights in the master bedroom did not work – it appeared they had no power to them. There were very few outlets throughout, but this may be due to the type of construction. No hair dryer was provided. The electricity went out for several hours while sleeping for 2 consecutive nights during our week-long stay. When the electricity went off, so did the AC. So not only did we get hot, but we could hear the wild dogs barking all night. This made for two nights of little sleep. After our 6th day, the water ran out during our first morning shower. Gardener was able to rectify the problem later that morning. The master bedroom had two shams that were used as pillows. One was a memory foam, the other a very poor pillow. Bedding was far from deluxe, but not unusual given our location. The washing machine was located near the pool (a bit far from the house). It was not electrically grounded, so you were shocked each time you touched the metal inside the machine, or you touched your wet cloths. There was no dryer (not a big deal) or dishwasher (a bigger deal, but not unusual for the middle east). Very expensive – it cost 6 keys and $795 to reserve. It listed several amenities that were not there: Staffed Guard Gate Dryer Outdoor grill Had to have a driver take you most everywhere. It was generally about $100/day for the driver and gas.”
Amazing Experience - GO!!!
I cannot say enough about this beautiful property and travel experience! If you are even considering going to Jordan, DO IT! The people are just wonderful, country is beautiful and very safe. This home is in a very high end hotel community (but is a separate house overlooking it all - the very best spot in the area) so you have no need to feel uncomfortable with the unknown. Not to mention there is a staff at the house who are all incredibly friendly and helpful, The owner helped a lot with planning. We visited Petra and Jerusalem and had this as our home base. The views and scenery are truly unbelievable. We did not have any kids with us but I felt it was a very kid friendly destination as well. DO IT, DO IT! Thank you!!!”
Dont' miss the opportunity to visit this Desert Oasis!
This home is simply incredible! It is a stunning home and property surrounded by the desert with beautiful views of the Dead Sea. It was like our own private resort. The sunsets were exquisite; must have about 50 different pictures of the sunsets, it was so special each night. During our stay we floated in the Dead Sea, had a desert jeep ride, rode camels, visited some very historic holy sites and visited one of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra( truly a lost city not to be missed)! A world economic forum in the Dead sea area with top dignitaries including the King of Jordan took place . The area was being shut down for security reasons on short notice and It required special passes to allow us to remain in the area during the forum and the owners arranged everything we needed on a short time schedule. It was very much appreciated. Thank you to the Turki family for being gracious hosts, providing such a stunning property and an opportunity to visit Jordan. This property allowed us to take a trip of a lifetime! We encourage everyone to step out of their comfort zone and experience all that this property and Jordan has to offer. We hope to return again soon.”
Villa over looking the Dead Sea in Jordan
We don't have enough space to truely describe the fabulous villa, grounds, staff and owner. Before the trip the owner Abdallah couldn't have been more helpful from making suggestions on what to see in Jordan to putting us in touch with a guide and making suggestions on the best direct flights from Chicago. Our guide Riad, who was a font of knowledge about the country and culture was wonderful. Once we arrived we were very well cared for by Abdul who gave us a tour of the property and explained how to navigate the villa and surrounding town. Imagine exploring historical sites thousands of years old and at night sitting by the large lighted pool overlooking the Dead Sea with the canopy of lights in Jeruzelum across the sea, simply magnificent.”
