About the Homestay
My family is happy to share our apartment with people from different part of the world to communicate with them and learn their cultures and lifestyles. And also share our culture, customs and local foods with them. You can come with us to the family parties and ceremonies.
Our apartment is located in the west of Shiraz. Easy access to subway, public bus and taxi to go to city center and visit ancient places.
Also you can easily use Snapp app- A location-based app - that makes hiring an on-demand private driver. Snapp is a convenient, inexpensive and safe taxi service. For example you can go from our house to the city center just by about 1$.
As I studied art and my husband studied architecture, we can make a good schedule for guests to visit highlights, according to their time.
Kitchen is always free to use, although I am also good in cooking traditional foods & Shirazian food (Kalam Polo, Dopiaze, Kashk-e bademjon, Ghorme Sabzi, Gheyme, Ghalye , ..... Unlimited free breakfast, coffee, Chai (Persian Tea) and Wifi included.
Overall very clean, new and good quality, you can count on our friendly family members for any help and assistance. For more info, you can message me.

Our stay at Zari's and Mohsen was perfect and we experienced there the true Iranian hospitality.
They were super flexible as we arrived at their place at 2 am (thanks again for this) and they helped us during our (unfortunately short) stay in Shiraz : giving advice about where to eat, what to visit and even inviting us to a restaurant :)
They were both very open-minded and educated and we shared with them several interesting discussions.
The appartement is very well decorated, clean and located in a quite residential area. Zari prepared us typical (tasty) Iranian breakfast in the morning, even very early when we had to leave to visit Persepolis.
Zari, Mohsen, please accept once again our gratitude and be assured that we will remember you for a long time! We wish you all the best.
We enjoyed staying with Mohsen and Zari in Shiraz. They gave us a lot of tips for restaurants and sites off the beaten track.
We recommend staying with them in Shiraz.
Nous avons été extrêmement bien reçu par Zari et Mohsen. Nous avons eu des discussions variées sur l'histoire de l'Iran, sa culture (autour d'un the bien sûr). ils nous ont donné des conseils sur les visites et les restaurants, appelé des taxis,... et Zari nous a préparé un delicieux petit déjeuner iranien tous les matins (avec notamment la confiture de sa mère). Leur appartement est charmant et très propre !
We were extremely well received by Zari and Mohsen. We exchanged on Iranian culture and history (around a cup of tea of course). They gave us advice on what to visit, where to eat and called taxi for us whenever we needed one. Every morning Zari prepared us Iranian breakfast (with her mom's marmelade!). Their place is lovely and very clean!
Nous sommes restés 2 jours chez zari et mohsen. Un super acceuil et surtout très bonne rencontre. Un bon moment passé devant le match Iran Maroc même si Safiya était triste de voir son équipe du Maroc perdre. :)
Nous les recommandons à 100%. Au plaisir de les revoirs en France ou en Iran. S & A
Very nice and modern flat with everything you need to be comfy.
Zari & Mohsen are friendly and helpful people. Thank you !
We had the pleasure of staying at Zari and Mohsen's apartment for a couple of nights. The house is located in a quite residential neighborhood (with some small shops nearby incase you need to buy something), easily reachable from Shiraz city center in 10-15 minutes by cab/snap. The communication, response and booking was smooth and hassle free. They were extremely helpful in guiding us about the best places to see in and around Shiraz. True to the Shirazian hospitality they go the extra mile to make the guests feel at home, you can surely sit with them for hours to discuss history, architecture, language and culture.

Very nice place and comfortable apartment. Zara and Mohsen is a very friendly couple. Plus, Zara was a good cooker.
Zari and Mohsen are a very nice and hospitable couple who did not hesitate to leave us their room so that the three of us could stay comfortably in their apartment. They are very educated and knowledgeable about art, history and architecture, both of them work in historical buildings restoration. Unfortunately, we did not have much time to exchange with Mohsen as he was busy with his studies :(
Our breakfast was wonderful, with a delicious typical "ash sabzi" of Shiraz!
Thank you so much again! Don't hesitate to ring the bell if you ever come through Paris for your next travel.
Zari and Mohsen are really wonderfull people and stay in their flat with them was a pleasure.
We received from them not only the accomodation,but very kindful and friendly approach. We received much more than we expected.they helped us with everything. With buying tickets to bus,with charge to phone,to find next accomodation,they adviced us a lot of beautiful places in town,simple great people.
Mohsen and Zari are the best representants of Iranien hospitable and we wish them all the best and many satisfied guests like we are.

Very very nice English speaking people who helped us a lot during our visit in Shiraz. Not only was the room and breakfast good, they did not hesitate to help us out with planning our trip, where to go, what to see and how to get there. Zari & Mohsen are a Homestay and Travel Agency in one.
Without any doubt we would recommend to stay at their place. Located only 15 min by Snapp/Taxi from the centre.
@Zari&Mohsen; hope to see you soon in Europe!
