About ian hazelwood

Hi my names Ian, thank you for viewing my holiday home ,and i hope you will enjoy your stay.

Why ian hazelwood chose Morocco

I looked at various propertys in the vicinity ,however when i came across this charming ruin in a fantastic setting,and i thought, yes this is the location for me.

I then spent 2 years restoring the property , renovating it in a fusion of traditional Moroccan style with a modern twist,the house has been refurbished using traditional materials, but also furnished with every modern convenience.

What makes this house unique

This part of Morocco is unspoilt, and the noise of the local birds is the main interruption to this tranquillity. Plus you are a short walk from the beach - surfing or fishing anyone? It's a place removed from the rest of the world - perfect for unwinding from a high-pressured job; it is a haven of peace and quiet for guests seeking a truly private retreat from the melee of the bustling modern lifestyle.

The property, has a large sun terrace is perfect for secluded sunbathing,and admiring the unspoilt views, or star gazing at the night sky, and is set in the countryside.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"lovely, large house with easy access to beach resort"



Traditional style house with lots of space, could easily accommodate two families. Large sun terrace very private and jacuzzi ideal to entertain children. Internet cafe and small shops in easy walking distance. Lovely view of the mountains from the first floor balcony. Very cheap area - to travel around and eat out.

Spacious house in friendly village

  • 4 of 5

Casa Riad was great value and situated in a nice, atmospheric setting at the edge of the village. The house was spacious, well equipped and clean, and Ian provided us with lots of useful information.

We really enjoyed the village and I also enjoyed walking on the scrubby hillsides out the back. The people were very friendly, even though they had suffered from the devastating floods a couple of weeks earlier. It would have been great to interact more, but most daylight hours we were off exploring (and my French is much rustier than I feared!). Our 6 year old daughter was often transfixed by it all and the locals certainly took to her - several ladies enjoyed patting her on the head and giving her kisses!

A car is pretty essential (although there seemed to be lots of modern green buses plying between Tiznit and the coast, and taxis are relatively cheap) and roads are fine, so could quickly along the coast or take trip to Tafroute in the hills. Beaches are better down towards Mirleft, so a 25 minute drive most days. Tiznit is only a few minutes drive away and seemed a nice, fairly quiet town, with a couple of small supermarkets shops and plenty of markets.

We really enjoyed a relaxing stay at Casa Riad and would be happy to visit again.

Owner's Response: thanks for your kind review Keith, Re the comment about the local beach , and the "once in a 100 years storm" which occured last year,which temporarily washed away some of sand ;since Keiths review.... the beach has thankfully returned to normal ,and the beach now has its full quantity of sand once again. Oh and the mosque mentioned in another guests review is actually a school although it looks like a Mosque!!

An Oasis in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described if not better. It was clean,tidy and very welcoming without being over the top. The Riad is ample for 2 families of 4 but we were just a family of 3 so had plenty of room. Positioning of the house is in a quiet area which led to a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. On the roof terrace was a secluded area that overlooked the foothills of the Anti Atlas Mountain and had a jacuzzi along sun lounges so that you can spend endless hours chilling out just like we did. If you want to experience real Moroccan life then the area is the perfect place for you. The people who live in the village simply leave you alone to get on with your holiday and are very friendly when approached but you must be able to speak some French. Ian was very helpful throughout the holiday and so was his Representatives whilst we were there. You must in our opinion hire a car either from the start as in the airport you land or from Cosmos in the town otherwise you will not easily get around. We would definitely go again

Quiet and restful close to 3 Kilometre long beach

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil village with easy access from main road between Tiznit and Aglou Plage[ the Beach Resort] Uncluttered spacious home with superb terrace and jacuzzi. Terrific view looking out across the village to the mountains and another of the very nearby hills- free of dwellings-

Many useful amenities including 2 satellites, DVD player, TV with loads of personal music CD's, BBC DVD's and movie DVD's and No WIFI (thank goodess) but lots of WIFI signs in cafes at Aglou Plage-2 minutes away- and Tiznit (Titanic Cafe- great cappuccinos ) 8 minutes away. Beds were a lttle bit on the firm side (some folks like that), showers were a tad cold but the owner is so so personable that he cares and soon adjusted the showers to temperature required. The owner saw to our needs and concerns by supplying Info guides for his guests,it felt like home.

Incredibly safe and secure seeming. Easy parking behind and above the village mosque and short walk to the front door or drive through the windy roads to a private parking space next to the house. We witnessed timeless, daily life in this tranquil village of friendly, humble welcoming people.

We made day trips,not only to the local beach resort,but also to all the cities and villages in the area to include- Agadir-70 minutes, Mirleft- lots of sandy beaches-25 minutes, Tiznit- shopping and Tuesday, Wednesday souk market, and medina, Guelmine- changing terrain, Tafraoute- beautiful red rocks in and around the town, and Sidi Ifni the Spanish style hilly town and discovered many beaches of different personalities. The place was so quiet despite the proximity of a mosque. The bathrooms and showers are separate and also available on the terrace! The stairs to the living area and to the terrace are large and made easier with heavy banisters. As a person with physical limitations, I found the space easy to navigate without assistance. And by the way, it was incredibly affordable! The best quality for the least price we experienced! Thx Kimi and Lee.

"Total submersion, tranquil, accessible M

  • 5 of 5

Tranquil village of Zouite- easy access from main road between Tiznit and Aglou Plage or Mirleft. uncluttered, spacious home with superb terrace and above ground jacuzzi. Terrific views looking out across the village to the mountains and another of the very nearby hills- free of dwellings- which sometimes had sheep, goats and herder. Many useful amenities including 2 satellites, DVD player, TV with loads of personal music CD's, BBC DVD's and movie DVD's and No WIFI (thank goddess) but lots of WIFI signs in cafes at Aglou Plage- 2 minutes away- and Tiznit (Titanic Cafe- great cappuccinos) 8 minutes away. Beds were hard(some folks like that), showers were a tad cold but the owner is so, so personable and considerate that he cares and fixes and enquires about your needs and concerns. Info guides for everything and everywhere tenderly prepared for his guests. Felt like home. Incredibly safe, secure, relaxed. Easy parking behind and above the village mosque and short walk to the front door or drive through the winding village unpaved roads to a private parking space next to the house. Witness timeless, daily life in this tranquil village of friendly, humble, welcoming people. We made day trips to all the cities and villages in the area including- Agadir- 70 minutes, Mirleft- lots of great rocky, sandy beaches- 25 minutes, Tiznit- shopping and Tuesday, Wednesday Vege Souk, and medina-8 minutes, Guelmine- changing terrain- 60+min., Tafraoute- beautiful red rocks in and around the town- several hours, and Sidi Ifni- hilly town-60+min., and discovered many beaches of different personalities. The place was so quiet despite the proximity of a mosque. The bathrooms and showers are separate and also available on the terrace!

Owner's Response: It's always a pleasure to hear from valued guests about their holiday experience - especially when it's such a lovely review, nothing is quite so rewarding and so genuinely appreciated when the comments are so lovely as these. So many of our first-time guests have enjoyed their holiday so much that within days of returning home they've been in touch; I am impressed! I must be doing something right. The Shower was easily fixed when we showed the guest,that they have overlooked the location of master temperature control; and the matress has now been swiched to one less firm. This is a wonderful recommendation for everyone thinking of planning a relaxed holiday, for winter or summer sunshine.
