About Domi Mason (Mrs)

Of French origin, has spent the major part of her life in the UK, but also in Germany and in the US. Always keen to discover new countries and cultures. She now works in Paris in the Health sector and spends as much time as she can in Martinique and London, where her children and grand-children live,and long weekend in Marrakech.

Domi Mason (Mrs) purchased this house in 2004

Why Domi Mason (Mrs) chose Mechouar Kasba

During my first visit in 2004, I fell in love with this city and the kindness of Morrocan people, but also the beauty of the architecture, the skill of local craftmen. With my family we decided to buy this traditonal family house in which we feel good. After the buzz of the city, we appreciate even more the calm and serenity inside. I deliberately chose this house a short distance from the main square as I wanted a genuine Morrocan neighbourhood. It is very close to the Saadian Tombs therefore not isolated and within walking distance to all the major sites in the medina.During the winter months, the first thing I do every morning is to climb to the upper roof terrace. There I admire the snow capped Atlas mountains under a bright blue sky. In the summer it is again on the terrace that I spend some time, watching the starry nights.

What makes this house unique

The best things about staying at Dar Zinnia are first of all the warm welcome from Asmaà and Ibrahim with their great kindness and generosity. Then Asmaà's delicious cooking, the proximity of the souks, palaces to visit, the golf clubs nearby, the choice of various spas very near to the house, the swimming pool in the nearby hotel. My friends and guests hae often remarked that it feels good to stay at Dar Zinnia, we eat extremely well and when we leave we are in great shape.

Owner's Response: "Le souvenir du passage de Mme Z (21 mois avant qu’elle ne laisse une appréciation !!) reste malgré tout très clair. Ayant demandé un tarif pour 2 adultes + 2 enfants dans 2 chambres séparées mais aussi tous les 4 dans la suite, elle avait choisi de n’occuper que la suite, ce qui lui revenait considérablement moins cher. En effet la suite est composée d’une chambre et d’une petite pièce d’entre-deux où se trouvent les deux couchages d’appoint, comme indiqué dans la description sur le site. Il s’agit de 2 matelas sur un socle formant un canapé. Mis côte à côte, un matelas reste sur le socle, l’autre sur le tapis, c’est pourquoi l’on parle de couchage d’appoint dans le renfoncement de cette pièce. Le passage reste complètement libre entre la porte de la chambre et celle de la salle de bains. Cependant, une fois sur place la cliente a insisté pour avoir la suite plus une chambre, au tarif de la suite seule, ce que notre gouvernante a refusé. C’est alors que la cliente a crié et fait preuve d’une attitude inacceptable envers cette dernière. J’ai donc pris la décision de lui demander de quitter le riad, le lendemain seulement car il était déjà très tard et il y avait deux enfants. Mme Z avait décliné notre offre d’aller les chercher à l’aéroport ou la gare etc… et nous lui avions envoyé le plan de la kasbah, mais tout le monde sait que l’on peut trouver difficile de se repérer dans une médina, surtout la première fois. Mme Z n’avait pas non plus indiqué son heure d’arrivée, mais elle était attendue et le riad est toujours prêt. "

"An Amazing riad in the local area of the Kasbah, only 15 minutes to the centre where the markets are. You really feel like a local perosn staying in this riad. It is so clean and comfty and the housekeepers Ibrahim and Amsa are great friendly people. Breakfast always cooked for you when you get up which is amazing and they walk you around the kasbah if you want to go out which is nice. an amazing place"

Séjour parfait dans la Riad Dar Zinnia

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un superbe séjour à Marrakech dans la Riad Dar Zinnia. Les chambres étaient propres et très agréables, surtout la salle de bain de luxe dans la suite. La terrasse donne une vue sur les toits de la Kasbah et est parfaite pour regarder le soleil se coucher à la fin d'une journée passée à visiter. Ibrahim et Asma nous ont fait un accueil chaleureux avec réception à l'aéroport et dîner exceptionnel. L'emplacement de la Riad, a 15 minutes de marche des souks mais aussi à 2 minutes d'une piscine, était vraiment idéal. Nous y retournerons absolument l'année prochaine! Merci, Anna.

Séjour parfait en famille

  • 5 of 5

Une formule parfaite pour un séjour à Marrakech: très bonne situation, accueil discret et chaleureux d'Asmaa, Ibrahim et Zaza. Merveilleuse cuisine d'Asmaa, du petit-déjeuner au dîner avec possibilité d'une demi-pension. Efficacité d'Ibrahim pour les transferts aéroports et la réservation d'un hammam de rêve...on se sent comme à la maison ! On en gardera un super souvenir.
