SEARCHING FOR A REAL MOROCCAN HOLIDAY IN THE HEART OF MARRAKESH?

Then, by all means, come and see this apartment!

We look forward to introducing you to our warm, talented staff—included in the price of your stay—who will show you the very best of Marrakesh. Enjoy:

*Housekeeping and laundry service (except Sundays)

*A complimentary, 24/7 ride from the airport when you arrive (from 4 nights booked)

*A “baby kit” for those with little ones, including secure crib, high chair, buggy, changing table, baby bathtub, and more

*Fresh meals and babysitting services for a little extra (see “Terms and Conditions” for pricing)

*Free WiFi and digital cable

*Use of mobile phone with Moroccan chip so you can avoid exorbitant roaming charges

*Advice for excursions that have local flair—no tourist traps!

Our jewel-toned, air-conditioned apartment sleeps up to four guests in one bed and two daybeds, and is cloaked in the rich and romantic purples, reds and indigos that define Moroccan décor.

Many of our guests tell us this apartment occupies the perfect space in Gueliz Marrakech: the city center is just outside, but we’re located on a quiet street behind Mohammed V Avenue, where the city’s noise doesn’t reach.

Also included in the price of your booking is access to a secure, exclusive swimming pool just 500 meters away from the apartment, kept a secret by groves of palm trees, orange trees, and flowering bougainvillea. (Opening season 15 Mar to 31 Oct.A pool this sparkling, sunny, and well-kept is a rarity in the city center!) Take an afternoon dip and stretch out on a lounge chair for a nap in the sun—even the beach towels are included! Then, put on some sharp clothes for evening and head out with your significant other for an intimate dinner at a nearby restaurant, a coffee at a local café, and a stroll through the lush gardens of Harti and Majorelle.

When you return home for the night and sink into the sumptuous French-sized bed, draped in a royal red bedspread and lit by elegant luminaries, the bustle of the city will feel very, very far away.

If you’d rather stay in for dinner, Atika, our housekeeper and cook, will prepare an authentic Moroccan meal for you right in the apartment’s sleek, eat-in kitchen (for an additional charge). Take a seat at the traditional, 4-person dining table and enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation. Or, shop for fresh produce at the central market and prepare your own meal in the fully-stocked, American-style kitchen.

When you’re done cooking, enjoy your meal outside on the walk-out terrace with garden table and chairs.

And of course, the lively and ever-changing Jemaa el Fna square—which will enchant you with its food booths, snake charmers, monkey trainers, storytellers, and other artists—is just 10 minutes away.

Our first priority is making sure our guests enjoy vibrant Marrakech as much as we do, and experience it as locals would. That’s why we offer reasonable rates and a wealth of extras to give you a trip to remember for a lifetime.

Please call us today to book your Morroccan holiday! You won’t regret it!

About Agnès & Philippe-Alexis

Maybe you’ve heard this advice from the writer Toni

Morrison:

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t

been written yet, then you must write it.”

Our story of becoming holiday rental owners in Marrakech

is something like that.

In 2003, we were frequent visitors to Marrakech. As much

as we loved the beauty and liveliness of the Red City,

the accommodations were lacking. At that time, Marrakech

was becoming a global destination and there weren’t enough

places for visitors to sleep. Hotels were always booked during

peak season.

We had a place in mind where we would love to stay. It would

be authentic, with local design and architecture. It would be in

the center of everything. And it would provide a warm

welcome with one-on-one travel advice and guidance from

someone who knows the city well.

But, for us, that place didn’t exist yet in Marrakech.

So we created it.

Over a decade later, we have a collection of properties in our

beloved city of Marrakech.

Agnès & Philippe-Alexis purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Agnès & Philippe-Alexis chose Gueliz

Most rewarding for us is when our guests from around the

world write to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay.

We love opening letters and emails with photos and stories

from their trips.

They officially elected us as SUPERHOSTS, a big reward ofor us!

In fact, we love hosting guests so much we founded the

“Community of Marrakech Hosts” for Airbnb hosts in our region.

As often as we can, we gather to chat about strategies for

improving guest experiences and marketing our properties

in Marrakech. At our last meeting, more than 60 people showed

up to network and share ideas!

There are no two places more different than where we

live

—a picturesque village in the South of France—

and energetic Marrakech, where we spend our holidays.

Perhaps that’s why welove them each so much:

they compliment each other!

Our favorite activity when unwinding in Marrakech

(there are many!) is to book a whole spa with a hammam, just

for us (my wife Agnés and I). It’s the most serene and luxurious

experience in the world.

What makes this apartment unique

If you have questions about how to enjoy Marrakech down

to the last drop of mint tea, we would love to help.

Our goal is your great travel experience. Many of our guests

have stayed with us before and returned

—a testament to our dedication!

We look forward to hosting you and introducing you to

the best of Marrakech.

Please contact us for booking and travel information!

Wonderful stay and wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Agnes & Philippe-Alexis we're amazing; so helpful, kind and wonderful communication. The apartment is close to everything such as wonderful restaurants, good nightlife and just close enough to the medina for a bit of peace and quiet. It is a very safe and secure home with everything we needed and more.They sent a driver to pick us up from the train station to take us to the apartment. Upon arrival to the home we we're greeted by their very sweet house keeper Jamila with delicious mint tea and traditional Moroccan sweets. They helped us arrange a rental car and had it brought to the apartment for us as well as a ride back to the train station for our departure. They we're truly the BEST airbnb hosts we have ever had. Next time we're in Morocco we will definitely be staying here again. :)

Perfect location and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Agnes and Phillippe's place several times. I love the convenience of the location and the apartment feels home and cosy. Communication with the hosts is always top, and it is without a doubt my best vacation rentals experience ever. During the colder months, the apartment feels warm enough, and I didn't use the heating at all during my stay. I highly recommend to stay here. It is close to anything you need and walkable too. If you need taxi's you have taxi's around all day and all evening. Since you are in downtown I recommend to bring along some ear plugs as there can be some noise in the late evening/night. I am sure you'll enjoy your stay here. It is super cosy and the flat is bright and calm.

Great experience !

  • 5 of 5

Good

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very clean and extremely well-serviced and the hosts very attentive and helpful.

On the downside, the apartment's amenities were slightly over-sold; bathroom plumbing and fittings a little tired, shame that the swimming pool and washing machine are available upon request only and there were a few too many petty rules.

Great location; great service, beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had stayed the previous week at the owner’s other, larger, apartment, Anissa, but it was not available for the second week of our trip, so we were assisted by the staff driver to move here. Naiade, is in fact, just round the corner from Anissa, so we were already familiar with the area by this time. Naiade is just as clean, well-equipped and beautifully decorated as Anissa, but only has one bedroom. This was enough for us and we were very pleased with our experience.

There is an American style kitchen, which has the usual kitchen equipment and utensils - pans, cutlery, cups, glasses, plates etc, that you would expect at home, so you don’t need to bring a huge amount of luggage, or supplies. We cooked in the apartment sometimes, and also ate out at nearby restaurants. There are some wonderful bakeries too! As part of the apartment service, you can have a cooked meals or picnic delivered to you, if you want to be spoiled, and I can tell you, the chef is fantastic! The cleaner came in regularly and changed the towels twice each week. We had access to free Internet in the apartments to used googlemaps to work out our walking routes and check out recommended places to visit. We were taken back to the airport by the driver in good time, with no hassle at all.

We had a great time, probably much better, than if we had gone on a packaged holiday.

Great location for discovering Marrakech

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well equipped to cover holiday requirements. The location is great for access to old Marrakech and all the great restaurants in Guilez. The pick up service is great and the owners are connected to a good taxi service that will offer private trips to the mountains or the coast.

Place Jamma is about a 4km walk which is quite straight forward.

Access to the swimming pool in the hotel at the end of the road is a real bonus on a hot day in Marrakech

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing our property! We are pleased that you had a nice time and you enjoyed our lovely apartment with free access to the superb and quiet pool, free WIFI, pick up service 24/7 from the airport, free phone calls; numeric tablet loaned, maid, and numerous other benefits... We just want clarify some details : The Place Djemâa el Fna is 3km nearby rather than 4km (source: Google Maps) with an easy access even without car, and Mustapha is not a "taxi" but our driver with private minibus. Agnès and I would be delighted to host you a more time in the future. All the best, Agnès & Philippe-Alexis Your dedicated hosts in Marrakech.
