In the medina
This property is located in a the heart of the Medina, in an area inhabited by residents. We would recommend this property if you are staying two or more days. This gives you time to acclimatize to the area and enjoy the comforts of the home.
The two ladies who provided cooking and cleaning are delightful. The breakfasts were great. Karmar, the property manager, was very attentive and was happy to arrange private transportation for us.
We felt the home looked tired and was in need of new paint, cleaning of tile floors and general “pick up”. However we hear the owner is going to be undertaking some renovations. The home is on four floors and has very narrow stairs in winding staircases. We also felt a little more attention to having some soap and shampoo, and another bedside lamp in the bedroom , and cleaning of the plants would improve the appeal.
By the time we left,we were wishing we had booked longer.
Thank you Bob for the feedback. Yes, re: renovations, that is correct. We go tomorrow (on the new Ryan Air Stanstead direct to Essaouira flight!!) to do the annual paint and 'pick up', which is so necessary when living close to the sea. I am pleased that you had a lovely holiday and were well looked after. Welcome to visit again anytime!!! Abby
Old charm, convenient location
Lovely property, gracious hostess and delicious breakfast every morning. Loved walking on nearby beach.
Spacious and stylish.
A lovely, quirky house in the medina. The hostess and the agent were very professional, warm and welcoming.
Fabulous house - perfect for a family.
We spent Christmas at Dar Ronde and it was absolutely perfect for us - a family of 2 adults and 2 children (age 10 and 12). The house is large (especially the bedrooms), well-appointed, in a great location and had everything that we needed. Meriam (the housekeeper) and Kamar (the agent) were super-friendly, helpful and really made our holiday special (although it helps a lot to speak French). The breakfasts and dinners that Meriam prepared were delicious and it was such a treat to come down to breakfast that someone else had prepared every morning. The medina is easy to find your way around and the house is on the "quiet" side - but within easy reach of everything, including the beach.
All in all, a wonderful place to stay - I would highly recommend it!
Ticks all the boxes
Lovely house, space, light, clean, and a great location in the heart of the Medina. Kamar and her team made us more than welcome, and the breakfasts each day were a great way to kick off. Highly recommended,
Essaouira is world renowned for its arts and Gnawa music. Its 200-year-old medina is a maze of arches and alleyways interspersed with piazzas and café-lined streets. Fruit, vegetables, meats, spices and fish fill the souks, while a vast range of little stores sell china, wood and antiques. Outside the city walls is a lively port where fresh fish is caught daily. The sea offers one of the world’s best spots for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Other activities include quad biking, camel rides, horse riding, sailing, bike hire.
