(June 2017) Great, cozy riad: fantastic ocean views, peaceful neighborhood, and lovely apartment. Caretaker and cook were delightful!
(June 2017) We couldn't rave about this AirBnB more. The house is fantastic; it's right in the medina so a short walk to everything you might want to see, plus restaurants, etc, and the house itself is perfect. It's spacious, with plenty of comfortable areas to lounge around, both inside and out. The bedrooms were comfy, there are bathrooms throughout the house, and everything was very clean. It's also a very tastefully and comfortably decorated house. Johan and Kaylin were very helpful right up until our arrival, at which point Fouad takes over as on-site help. Fouad and Kadisha were also both wonderful and helpful. All in all this is a great house to stay in, and run by very helpful people who helped make our trip streamlined and hassle free, even when we encountered our own hiccups! Thanks for a great holiday.
(May 2017) It was very good and just as it said on the site. Thank you!
(May 2017) Sfeervolle Riad: prachtig ingericht met lokale decoraties en meubels. Uitzicht over zee vanaf het dakterras. Communicatie is perfect. Ontvangst gastvrij. Eten heerlijk. Echt een aanrader.

(April 2017) Das Haus hat eine Terrasse mit Meerblick, ein Hauptgrund für die Buchung. Leider war, wohl auch aufgrund einer zehnköpfigen Gruppe, die vor uns da war, die Terrasse eher ein Lager. Der Brunnen im Erdgeschoß war voller Elektro- und Plastikschrott, generell bedarf es bei einer so intensiven Nutzung wohl einer besseren Pflege des Hauses. Fouad war sehr bemüht und freundlich, er gab sein Bestes. Wir haben uns, auch aufgrund der Tatsache, dass dieses Haus im Vergleich zu anderen, die wir gemietet hatten in Essaouira in der Vergangenheit, deutlich mehr erwartet.
"The house has a terrace with sea view, a main reason for booking. Unfortunately, probably because of a ten-member group, which was before us, the terrace rather a camp. The well on the ground floor was full of electrical and plastic scrap, in general it is necessary with such intensive use probably a better care of the house. Fouad was very helpful and friendly, he did his best. We have also expected significantly more due to the fact that this house was compared to others that we had hired in Essaouira in the past. "
(March 2017) Amazing place to stay. We were all really happy with our stat.
(March 2017) Nous avons passé 6 journées magnifiques à Essaouira. La qualité des lieux, leur confort et leur propreté ont contribué à rendre notre séjour excellent. La terrasse offre une très belle vue sur la mer, les chambres sont spacieuses et confortables. Toutes les demandes particulières que nous avions formulées ont été rencontrées. Merci à Johan de mettre un tel endroit à disposition des touristes pour un prix tout à fait justifié. Un tout grand merci.
“We spent 6 wonderful days in Essaouira. The quality of the places, their comfort and their cleanliness have helped make our stay excellent. The terrace offers a beautiful view of the sea, the rooms are spacious and comfortable. All the special requests we had made were met. Thanks to Johan for putting such a place at the disposal of tourists for a very justified price. A big thanks.”
(February 2017) Una casa preciosa y acogedora donde no falta ningún detalle, dispone de plancha, secador, utensilios de cocina. Las habitaciones muy bonitas, limpias y sin ruidos. Una muy buena elección en tu visita a Essauira!
“A beautiful and cozy house where there is no detail missing, has iron, hair dryer, kitchen utensils. Very nice rooms, clean and no noise. A very good choice in your visit to Essauira!”
(February 2017) Excellent riad, proche des commodités. Habitation très agréable et fonctionnelle. Très belle terrasse. Idéale pour un séjour en famille (7 adultes, 1 enfant et 1 bébé).
“Excellent riad, close to amenities. Very nice and functional home. Very nice terrace. Ideal for family holidays.”
(February 2017) I just want to said you that we have spent a wonderful week, with a nice weather and nice people. The riad is great and very confortable. It’s really a great place for all the family, you’re lucky to have it. All your informations was perfect and the timing was right. Fouad and Kadisha was very nice too and Faoud is a good “manager“ for people as us. Think you very much.
(January 2017) Joli riad bien situé au coeur de la medina.
“Nice riad well located in the heart of the medina.”
(January 2017) Communications before our stay were excellent. We were sent a brief questionnaire to fill out and a little note about the home. I was very impressed with the organization and very clear communications!! We were met near the outside of the medina, as we had prearranged, with Fouad. He showed us the way to the home and gave us an orientation. We (family of five) had plenty of room to spread out. The house is very comfortable and pretty. We arranged for breakfasts and dinners with the housekeeper. She and her daughter are excellent cooks & kind and lovely people. We enjoyed the meals very much, and especially being able to eat in the comfort of the house. The wifi worked well. The DVD player wasn't working (Fouad said it had just broken) but we didn't mind--we didn't need it (and I'm sure it will be fixed immediately given the high standards of this rental). I did hear a nearby dog barking a lot the first night. It bothered me a bit but fortunately did not bother anyone else in my family. I didn't hear it the dog the following nights. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It was a lot of fun to explore Essaouira!
(January 2017) Renting this property was very straightforward and efficient though I regret using booking.com as the owners speak english and I could have saved them the 18% commission. Faoud arranged the luggage cart for both journeys, the children enjoyed the ride too, nice breakfasts and evening meal. Lovely warm log fire. The camel ride ,price started at 150dhs and ended up at 40dhs, was a great experience. Les Remparts was a great restaurant and the music from Said on the Guembri (Lute) and owner Mestapha on the krarebs(?) was stunning.
(December 2016) Riad ideally placed in the heart of the medina of Essaouira, very comfortable, decorated with taste.
(December 2016) Great spot in the narrow streets of Essaouira - nice old house that was renovated some years ago - very clean and close to the medina - nice breakfast made by local woman in the house.
(October 2016) The information pack sent to me when I booked was extensive, informative and very helpful. Everything that needed to be sorted prior to our arrival was dealt with by Kaylin. Fouad was extremely helpful and ensured that everything we asked for was arranged and he also offered advice and suggestions, which all worked out brilliantly! Kashida came and cooked a tagine, showing us how it was done. The house is very comfortable and located very close to great shopping and some of my favourite restaurants (found during a visit in 2015!)! A great week, thank you!
(September 2016) Kaylin was very kind, responsive and helpful for arranging everything we needed - transportation to and from the house, and homemade dishes cooked by a local lady. The caretaker Fouad was most kind and took good care us, made sure that everything was going ok during our stay. The food Kadisha cooked was also very good. We loved the decorations and arrangements, felt very at home in the lovely house and fully enjoyed our holiday in Essaouira thanks to those great people. Thank you so much!!!
(June 2016) A truly beautiful property with the advantage of Fouad to phone taxis / organise trips - he is a mine of information. Kadisha will cook for you and we'd recommend taking her up on that. The logistics worked very smoothly with Fouad organising the taxi from the airport then meeting us outside the Medina with a porter for the luggage (the Medina being traffic free). We were a little unfortunate in that consistently windy weather kept us from enjoying the sun terrace with its lovely sea views. Other than that we had a great time - local restaurants are very reasonably priced (speak to Fouad for recommendations).
