Is it possible to rent a nice beach house/apartment in Djerba for the weekend? looking for 3 to 4 bedroom house for next weekend. Advise and pointers are appreciated.
I don't think that you'll find much like that to rent in Djerba.
We returned from there on Tuesday (4th visit) the accommodation that we were hoping for was full, we found a 2 bed house to rent for 20TD per night. The Tunisian moved in with mum and we rented his house. However, most of the beaches along the east and south coast are lined with hotels, I don't think there are any apartments, not on the beach at least.
I think the better known resorts such as Sousse, Monastir or Mahdia would be a better bet for what you want.
I Could be wrong of course.
Thanks for this response.
How did you find the gentleman who you got the apartment from?
We just asked a local "tout" working one of the hotel gates.
The house was tidy but not finished, but then many aren't anyway.
The guy that we rented from is actually building two small, probably 2 bed houses, specifically to rent to tourists, unfortunately they'll not be ready until September. I do have a mobile no for him though if you should want somewhere in the future.
If you haven't found anything, its worth looking into Zarzis, which you may enjoy more than Djerba.
Thanks kevin.... that would be helpful for the future ...
did djerba and it was beautiful...
