Suhair Homestay

Suhair Abu Nima is mother to two boys and one girl and introduces herself as the most active woman in Battir, a picturesque village that joined UNESCO's world heritage sites list after an emergency nomination to stop Israel from building a separation wall across its ancient farmland.

Living in a neighborhood known among locals as the Seven Widows, Suhair’s home could easily be considered as one of the most interesting homes in Battir, because it overlooks the famous Jaffa-Jerusalem railway, which was inaugurated in 1892.  Not only that, but staying at her house will guarantee that you enjoy a panoramic view of the age old railway, the historical terraces lining the farmed valley and most importantly lounge at the stone house next door, which was renovated by UNESCO and heritage preserving organizations.

Before she decided to open her home to Battir’s visitors and guests, Suhair was heavily involved with the local community. Many organizations and the local council askedSuhair to cook for groups and cater food during events taking place in the village. She owns a land that she cultivates herself and prepares the fruits and vegetables to become delicious pickles and jams.

The fire in Suhair’s eyes speaks volumes about her strong and leading character. Unlike other women who choose to cheer from the sides, Suhair decided to stand by her husband and help him provide for her family. She prides herself for being ambitious and courageous. “I didn’t get the chance to study, but I taught myself many valuable skills that make me who I am today.” Because she was not lucky enough to receive higher education, Suhair is working hard to be able to secure her children’s future. Her eldest daughter Aseel speaks good English and Suhair couldn’t be prouder. “My daughter helps me communicate with my guests and is improving her language skills every time we host English speaking guests.”

Suhair is a fun, active and outgoing woman who refuses to let go of a dream. She believes there is nothing impossible with hard work and dedication. Embracing this adventure and formally becoming a host, Samah is certain this experience will be yet another eye opener to the beauty of the world. She believes her house is the one where any tourist would love to stay because of its outstanding location, her family’s good spirits and because she is both an experienced cook and host.

Her house is very modest and cozy. The guests’ room, where she added two single beds could accommodate up to three guests. The front gate leads to a newly renovated yard and the back door unlocks the hidden beauty of Battir. “My husband and I are very excited and optimistic. With every guest staying at our house, we are making a new friend and our kids are learning a bit more about the world.” Ahmad, Mazen and Aseel are fond of meeting new people and Suhair is delighted that her family shares her passion as well.

In the small and comfy bedroom where guests are going sleep, Suhair hung a picture of a quote that reads, “Home is where the heart is”. Suhair believes staying with her family will not replace anyone’s home, but it be as comfortable and warm as it could get.
