Medina House Rental Photos and Description
Is a beautifully restored merchants’ house located in a quiet residential area
This elegant Riad can accommodate up to 16 guests with 5 luxurious guest suites. At it’s heart is an impressive cloistered patio with dipping pool. The roof terrace is one of the most remarkable in Marrakech with views across the rooftops of the Medina to the Atlas mountains. Whether it’s a special occasion, a relaxed family holiday or a last minute get-away with friends exclusive use of a whole Riad is a fantastic way to enjoy Marrakech. Our accommodation is so flexible we can offer any combination of romantic doubles, fun and practical family rooms or luxurious twins and triples. When required we can equip a whole Riad with single beds (9 at Dar Habiba, 11 at Riad Papillon, or 16 at Riad Cinnamon) providing ideal accommodation for yoga groups, dance holidays, or a girls weekend. The highlight of any group booking will be a banquet in the Riad, delicious food in a friendly relaxed atmosphere whether you dine by the pool or in a Berber tent on the roof terrace.
Mike and Lucie Wood are the owners of this gem of a hotel-riad. Mikes Moroccan friend Mohammed introduced him to Marrakech 5 years ago and with his wife, Lucie, this is the second beautiful courtyard home they have renovated following the success of the stunning Riad Papillon. The riad is a home from home and Lucie has added many little touches that make guests feel welcome and looked after such as providing a mobile phone for guests to use in case they get lost and need rescuing by the onsite staff! Mike and Lucie live on a smallholding in Hertfordshire when they are not in Marrakech.
Andrew purchased this house in 2005
Why Andrew chose Medina
Marrakech is the first place we ever visited which we could see ourselves coming back to indefinitely.
What makes this house unique
What really makes us special, and fantastic value for money, is the small team of dedicated staff in each of our Riads who will be on hand to help, reassure and advise throughout your stay. These perfect little boutique hotels each have just four or five guest rooms so we can provide a truly personal service.
It is the small things that count: complimentary toiletries; breakfast served at the time of your choice; delicious evening meals individually prepared to your taste and dietary requirements; WIFI; a complimentary map of the old town; help booking restaurants and excursions; nothing seems to be too much trouble. We are pleased offer the loan of a local pay-as-you-go mobile to stay in touch with your English speaking hosts while you are out exploring.
Guestbook comments from the owner
This was the first stop on our honeymoon in morocco and I couldn't have asked for a better place. Great location, fantastic staff, and piece and quiet in the medina. Mustafa and Abdu were there every step of the way to ensure we had a great experience.
