An unforgettable getaway

  • 5 of 5

We traveled around Morocco, stayed at many different places, and this home will by far be the most memorable. We planned a trip to Essaouria as a family of 5 for 2 days in the beginning of March. From age 15 to age 70 we all loved it. The property is beautiful, filled with plants and open space. From the main road, to enter the property there is a dirt road surrounded my palms that take about 3 minutes to get to the house adding to the pleasant suspense and anticipation. Mostafa guided us to the house, made sure everything was ready, and retrieved anything we needed. He was wonderful and very helpful. The house feels very safe and has a gate. The furnishing is simple and the Kitchen was well equipped. There are two terraces, one on the second floor and one on the roof both with lovely views. Sunrises are spectacular. We were pleasantly surprised to find orange trees on the property and even a donkey! We heard the donkey and we requested to be let out of its barn. Mostafa came to the house and tied the donkey to a tree so we could feed him. The kids loved it. The pool was quite chilly to use in the beginning of March but it was still fun and was clean. The house has a playstation and an excellent selection of movies which was so nice to have after a long day. The showers are not great (low water pressure, fluctuating temp), but that is what you can expect being isolated and it was worth it. The house is not too far from Essaouria, but expect to drive at least 15-20 min. There is no WIFI, but this actually enhanced our family time. Our 15 year old was quite upset at first, but really enjoyed himself throughout the entire stay. 3 min drive from the house towards Essaouria, there are places to get fresh produce, eggs, meat, and bread very cheap.

All I would recommend is to have the house equipped with spices and outdoor lounge chairs that are not broken.

I highly recommend staying at this beautiful tranquil home!

Beautiful and idyllic place in a secluded area

  • 5 of 5

What was not to love about this place! It was amazing. From the resident peacocks roaming the grounds and the red dragonfly's skimming across the surface of the pool when they thought we weren't looking - to the Olive trees and beautiful greenery all contained in a very secure and private location. The walk we took through the local vineyard literally next door to the villa was really educational and enjoyable and the villa itself had ample amenities to keep us more than satisfied. Essaouira is a fair drive away and there are not many local shops around so you will need your own transport, but we chose this place for it's remoteness and found that it was based in an area close enough to commute to all the attractions we wanted to see. There was a grounds keeper on site but we rarely saw him and were never disturbed by him. If you're looking for an opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle and want to do so in style and comfort then look no further, this is the place for you.
