About the property

Big living room with chimney,2 bedrooms,big round bathtab,sunny roof terrace

The sunny apartment was beautifully decorated by its charming mistress in accordance with the ancient rules of arabic architecture and individual designed elements. The tadelakt (a traditional technique of painting the walls) & handmade traditional tiles in the whole apartment as well as many other lovely details give an antique ambience of the old medina and create a cosy & warm atmosphere to feel very comfortable.

The apartment is with 100 m² very spacious & provides room for 2- 4 people: the big living room contains a cosy chimney corner, 2 small balconies & an open fully equipped kitchen with an integrated cooking and dining bar. The international satellite TV, a free wifi-connection, a DVD player, an electric oven and a washing machine offer you in addition all the comfort to feel really at home. Both lovingly furnished bedrooms are equipped with a double bed each. The bathroom contains a big round bath tab with an integrated shower function. The toilet is seperate.

Casa Guapa attracts attention in the neighbourhood of Tamuziga (this is the very ancient name of Essaouira) and immediately you will discover our differentness to other guesthouses in the old Medina. The individual care about our guests in a familiar ambience is most important to us and at the same time the guests have their own full privacy and space. You can cater yourselves or be pampered by our famous breakfast and enjoy our homemade moroccan dishes at home.

On the groundfloor of Casa Guapa is 'Chez Nadine'. Her space of living and creativity with a small studio is private, although the sympatic mistress is happy to open her doors for occasionally sponteanous creative, social and culinary activities. Some of the creations which have been realized in the studio, are as well part of the furnishing on the upper floors of Casa Guapa.

In the new Hobbithouse kitchen we prepare our yummy breakfasts and savoury tajines for our guests.

If you are looking for a delicious dinner on the terrace or a relaxing massage, a cleaning lady or a baby-sitter, more knowledge about craft work and special insider tips, or you want to learn how to cook moroccan food – the charming mistress Nadine and her team will be happy to be at your disposal.

If you wish to be pampered with our famous breakfast we offer you this delicious and varied experience as an extra.

Communication is easy in Casa Guapa because we speak French, English, German, Spanish and Arabic.

Every guest has free access to the sunny roof terrace, where he can find a comfortable spot to relax. Many plants, partly roofed seating-accommodation, an amazing view over the medina from a second terrace, a barbeque and the brand new hobbit house kitchen create a cosy and warm atmosphere to feel very comfortable.

We provide free wifi internet connection in the whole house.

If you need a taxi from the airport of Essaouira, Marrakech or Agadir, we can organise your personal driver to pick you up there and bring you straight to Casa Guapa.

Guests travelling by car can park easily and free of charge in front of the house.

  • 4 of 5

The accomodation and the location of Casa Guapa exceeded our expctations on our first visit in 2014, hence our reason for returning.

We are a senior couple who appriciate the ambiance of these apartments, in particular the lovely rooftop terrace. Also its location in a hastle free environment.

The welcoming staff led by Hyatt,provided all the information one required.

The immediate neighbourhood of the apartments, has many restaurants, to suit all pockets and taste, with the additional benefit of cheap local taxis, to explore this most interesting of towns.

One can be as active or inactive, in the calm atmosphere of Casa Guapa, or engage with the beachside sports and travel further afield in this area of the Real Morocco.

Thank You Nadine and your team.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung für einen entspannten Ur

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 11 entspannte Tage bei Nadine und Hayat in der schönen Wohnung im 2. Stock zugebracht. Das Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse war superlecker und die Tajine, die man fürs Abendessen bestellen kann war auch Klasse! Neben netten Gesprächen gab es auch gute Tipps für Ausflüge.

Die Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, gepflegt und sehr sauber.

In der Stadt und der Umgebung gibt es einiges anzuschauen und wir haben besonders die langen Spaziergänge an fast leeren Stränden genossen. Wir können einen Aufenthalt nur empfehlen!!

Entspannungs- und Wohlfühloase in Essaouira

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns bei Nadine & Hayat sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir wurden sehr warmherzig empfangen und bekamen gleich eine kleine Stadtführung geboten. Alle notwendigen Läden und Wege wurden uns gezeigt. Die Wohnung war wirklich so schön, wie im Internet beschrieben, die Ausstattung ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll gestaltet, einfach zum Verlieben. Die Gegend ist sehr ruhig nachts, ein Parkplatz ist direkt vor der Tür. Das absolute Highlight war das tägliche frisch zubereitete Frühstück, sogar auf die Extrawünsche unseres 5-jährigen Sohnes wurde jeden Tag aufs Neue Rücksicht genommen. Wir bekamen von Nadine sehr viele Tipps für Unternehmungen und Einkäufe. Zudem haben wir auf der Dachterrasse auch ein ausgezeichnetes marokkanisches Essen serviert bekommen. Wir können diese Ferienwohnung nur aufs Wärmste empfehlen!

wie der Name verheißt - einfach wunderschön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 6 wunderbare Tage in der Casa Guapa verbracht und uns dort super wohl gefühlt. Vom ersten Moment an ist man angekommen, fühlt sich willkommen und sehr sympathisch betreut durch Nadine und Hayat.

Überall gibt es liebevolle künstlerische Details zu bewundern, man entdeckt auch nach Tagen immer noch Neues. Dazu war die Ausstattung gut - wir haben nichts vermisst - dazu alles sehr sauber und die Betten bequem.

Wir hatten das Apartment im 2.Stock aber die beiden anderen Wohnungen sind genauso individuell gestaltet und schön. Das tolle abwechslungsreiche Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse ist ebenfalls absolut empfehlenswert!

Für uns rundum stimmig, wir kommen sicher wieder! Evelyn & Uli

Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 11 Tage in Casa Guapa und hatten dort eine wirklich phantastische Zeit! Der herzliche Empfang von Hayat hat sicher dazu beigetragen, sich vom ersten Moment an super wohl zu fühlen. Das Apartment ist in natura genauso schön und groß, wie es auf den Fotos aussieht, und bei allen Fragen hat Hayat sofort weitergeholfen. Sie hat uns am Ankunftstag auch eine kleine Ortsführung zur Orientierung gegeben. Das richtig leckere Frühstück unbedingt dazubuchen, der beste Start in den Tag auf der sonnigen Terrasse! Essaouira selbst bietet eine sehr schöne Mischung aus Strandurlaub mit Wassersportmöglichkeiten und entspanntem Bummeln durch die alte Medina. Definitv ein Ort zum Wiederkommen.

Nearest Airport
15 Kilometres
Airport Essaouira

If Essaouira is generally acclaimed as one of the most enchanting spots along Morocco's Atlantic coast, it owes this position to a temperate climate which hardly varies from one month to the next, to the welcome and warmth offered by its inhabitants, to its inheritance of treasures both architectural and cultural and, more than all of these perhaps, to the unique atmosphere which rules its graceful streets, where fishermen, locals, tourists both Moroccan and European, merchants, craftsmen, musicians, and artists of all kinds come to share their work, their perspectives and their friendship as they have now for hundreds of years.

For some time now Essaouira has been experiencing a boom in tourism, aided by regular flights from major destinations around the world. Essaouira is developing fast, while carefully maintaining the combination of reflective beauty and youthful energy which draw people back to this town again and again.

Essaouira possesses a classical European 'Grand Place,' beautifully preserved ramparts and naval fortifications, one of the finest remaining fortified ports in the world, and numerous monuments of historical interest left by figures ranging from sixteenth-century Portugese explorers right up to Orson Welles and Jimmy Hendrix. Its architecture is both harmonous and yet varied, exposing at different times its French, Portugese, and Berber heritages. Mixing historic buildings with award-winning twentieth century designs lining its long, serene boardwalk, Essaouira is, like Morocco itself, a study in contrasts -- its impressive ramparts and cannon-studded walls enclosing tranquil winding streets, the bustle of the souks giving way to the crumbling grandeur of the ancient Mellah, mosques nestled next to churches and synagogues; and just minutes from the crash of ocean waves one finds the many great riads, their tranquil courtyards and soaring atriums restored to the golden age of Moroccan tilework and woodcraft, offering hospitality once again in the purest Moroccan tradition.

More recently another group has discovered Essaouira: the athletes of wind and surf, drawn here by the great waves which unceasingly ply the coast from Moulay Bouzerktoun down to Sidi Kaouki. Kite, wind, and board surfers have their own Essaouira, a laid-back year-round paradise which they have dubbed 'Windy City, Africa.'

Moreover, Essaouira is now once again truly an international crossroads, as numerous foreigners fall in love with this town and painstakingly restore the ancient homes of the Kasbah, opening new restaurants and hotels which combine a European sensibility with careful attention to Moroccan heritage which make Essaouira a truly special place to spend days, weeks or years.

Casa Guapa is located in the quarter of 'Azlef' opposite of Hammam Ghita (typical arabic bath, spoken: Rita), in the middle of the center of New Essaouira.

Different to the turbulent and busy life of the old Medina you will feel here straight away being part of the moroccan neighborhood and at the same time it is only a 15 minutes’ walk by foot to the Medina and the main tourist attractions of the city, 8 minutes to the beach and 2 to the forest. Small taxis are also circulating for 50 cents per ride everywhere in town. The new but not touristy Hammam and shopping facilities like supermarkets, bakeries, laundries and cafés are conveniently situated just around the house.
