Martyn Wheatley purchased this house in 2006
For many years we wanted to tour Morocco,but the price of flights and accommodation proved to be over our budget.
Then the King of Morocco opened up the 'sky' to cheap flight operators,and Travelrepublic offered accommodation deals.In September 2006 we embarked on a three week tour of Morocco,and the thought of a holiday home abroad had been on our minds for many years.
During our visit to Morocco,viewing many properties for sale,we spent a wonderful week in Essaouira.
Living in coastal Wales,enjoying friendly country life,we wanted a home 'far from the maddening crowd'
Our brief to our friend and agent was to find us a traditional,country house, in the Berber village of Ghazoua.
Without viewing the property , we purchased the house, expecting a few rentals per year.
Our home is your home,and our friends are your friends,enjoy.
For a taste of the 'real Morocco' this is good as it gets.
Wonderful country village location, neighbours, environment, and much more.
Essaouira airport is only 12 miles from the house(London Luton,May-November,EASYJET........................
We had a good time, stress free travel with Martyns assistance prior to our departure.The villa is truly charming, keeping it in Berber style, excellent.
The neighbours were all very friendly and helpful.
Martyns beautiful villa is everything you could desire for a relaxing holiday and I thoroughly agree with previous reviewers regarding cleanliness, facilities, the lovely Said! We all really enjoyed our stay meeting lovely, friendly people, dogs, donkeys... and quickly mastered the walk up and down the piste and the magical experience of the 4dh bus ride into essauoira. The swimming pool at Les Deux Monde was just what we needed along with a refreshing beer. The KM8 restaurant is a superb little oasis. The bus ride to Sidi Kaouki, at 3.5dh, another amazing experience. Only regret - that we didn't spend the two weeks at Villa Tazmin. Thanks again Martyn and Said for your lovely villa...we are returning in April to chill out and do all the things we didn't get round to doing the first time!
My second visit in lovely villa Tazmin . This place is just magnifique. House is spacious, plenty of room for dancing in rhythm of Moroccan music :) Weather was still quiet hot, during the day up to 30C but nights a bit cold, 6C but thanxs to Said we weren't cold. He brought some wood and we could enjoy fireplace I could only dream of before. This villa is in very good condition in comparison with some riads in old Medina in which you can experience dampness during the winter months. But the thing is that overall experience is not only about the house but also about the people you are sharing with.
This house makes the perfect base from which to explore this part of a beautiful country....spacious, quirky and clean. The neighbours were very friendly and the children were great.The roof terrace was a delight (both morning coffee drinking and evening star-gazing). Comfy beds, well-equipped kitchen....what more could you need....?
Many thanks Martyn for letting us stay.
Regards Bev & Sandy
We had a marvellous stay in Villa Tazmin, you've got plenty of space with all facilities you need. The rooms are comfortable, clean with combination of Moroccan and western style. Said, the villa's concierge was very friendly and helpful (24/7). The roof terrace was our favourite spot not only for beautiful mornings' sunrise but also for memorable watching stars and dreaming. If you are traveller from Britain you will definitely appreciate every single sunny day. Amazing weather we can only dream about :) You people should really go on holiday to Morocco, it's unforgettable experience!
We have just returned from Villa Tazmin, i cant recommend it enough, it is home from home in comfort but with the extra bonus of beautiful weather!
We were able to sunbathe on the terrace even in December, can you imagine???
The locals are very friendly and the neighbours are darlings, we were invited for tea, lunch etc and were able to buy our Argan oil ( a must buy from Morocco ) from them as they are part of a woman only co op that encourages Moroccan women to work.
Said, the property manager/ caretaker is a gem, he picked us up from the bus station and took us to the supermarket to buy supplies and we bumped into him over the week in all sorts of places, he translated, taxi serviced, fitted calor gas.....nothing was too much trouble for him and we were always greeted with a smile and the words, "you are welcome"
I have visited Morocco many, many times in the last 30 years but this was one of the best visits
It is very easy access into Essaouira, with lovely beaches, port, Chez Sam! and other many restaurants, cafes and shops
Villa Tazmin is everything this listing and it's positive reviews describe it as and more. My fiance and I visited Essaouira for two weeks and had an amazing stay at Martyn's Villa.
This Roman/Ottoman style house is located in the Berber village of Ghazoua, about a 10 minute drive from the Medina of Essaouira. The country road to the villa is a little intimidating at first, it's a dirt and rock road and our little Cleo rental car did not handle it well. However, after the first day, we grew to love the area. The neighbors were warm, friendly and very welcoming. The local shops in the area were very understanding of my limited vocabulary in French and Arabic and my trips to the store became language lessons. The local community is very tourist friendly and felt very safe.
The villa has a central room that connects the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and the living room. All the rooms have plenty of space, there is a decent size closet in the main bedroom and a walk in closet in the second bedroom (which became our treasure room as we began to obtained souvenirs). The rooftop terrace/garden is huge. Surrounded by 7-8 ft walls that provides plenty of privacy, it's perfect for relaxing and eating during the day and star gazing at night. The Villa was tastefully decorated and had everything that was listed on the website, modern appliances, flat screen lcd tv, stereo, stove with an oven, fridge etc. Everything was clean and in working order when we arrived. The house manager was knowledgeable, gracious and very accommodating. He provided us with maps, information on the Medina, as well as the local areas. He answered all our calls and questions, couldn't have asked for a better point of contact.
All in all, Villa Tazmin was the perfect rental property for our vacation. The location was amazing, safe and convenient. 10 minutes from the Medina, 30 minutes from Sidi Kaouki (a prime surfing beach), and a few hours from Marrakech and Agadir, Villa Tazmin provided the perfect location for all our vacation expeditions. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. Martyn and the house manager met and exceeded all our expectations and Villa Tazmin truly felt like a home away from home. Thank you, Martyn, for sharing your house with us!
