Beautiful and comfortable riad
This riad exceeded all our expectations. Ideally located on the edge of the medina, it is really easy to find your way around the town.
As a family of four, we really appreciated all the different spaces to relax around the property. From meeting for breakfast in the shaded courtyard, to sunbathing on the roof terrace we took full advantage of this beautiful building.
The riad is clean and modern with reliable wifi (although this didn't stretch to the roof terrace). Sadia, our housekeeper even cooked us a wonderful breakfast on request.
We can't recommend this place highly enough; the perfect family accommodation.
I will comeback in this beautiful house
Ich war ja schon privat bei Ruth und Arnold zu besucht, dieses Mal habe ich das Haus für meine Reisegruppe gebucht. Alle waren begeistert und sofort ins Dar Zette verliebt.
Auch ich habe mich hier sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Saaida war liebenswert und nett, hat gut für uns gesorgt. Das Frühstück von ihr war reichhaltige und super lecker. Das Haus hat eine perfekte Lage, ob Strand, Medina oder Ausflüge... alles ist hier problemlos zu erreichen...
Danke nochmal an Ruth und Arnold...
Ich würde gerne wiederkommen
Danke Karin. Wir freuen uns darauf, Sie und Ihre Kunden bei einem zukünftigen Besuch begrüßen zu dürfen.
Whole house in Essaouira
We loved our stay in Essaouira. It was a relaxing getaway from the craziness of Marrakech. The unit was perfect for our family of four and we were spoiled by each of us getting our own bedroom. Plus it was nice to have a kitchen to make some meals of our own. I would definitely recommend this unit.
Thank you for your comments and recommendation. If you or your family visit Morocco in the future, we would love to see you again.
A big thank you to Ruth and Arnold for allowing us to spend a week in their beautiful house in the centre of Essaouira for a week in July 2018. As a family of five adults we fully appreciated the different balconies and private areas as well as the high quality amenities.
The house is very tastefully furnished and decorated with seating areas both inside and outside. The central courtyard is the heart of the house with the other communal areas surrounding and looking down on it.
The previous week we had been in Marrakech and Rachid met our taxi by the main entrance to the Medina. He introduced us to the house but left us to explore and settle in. At the end of our stay he arranged for a taxi to take us to Marrakech airport.
Saadia came in for a short while each day but left us to our own devices. One evening she cooked us two delicious meals, one with meat the other vegetarian. Best vegetarian tagine all holiday. For those of a similar disposition being a vegetarian in Essaouira is not difficult.
Essaouira is a bustling coastal town with lots going on but without the edge of Marrakech. It has a good beach which is very easy to get to from the house with all the amenities you would expect. Look out for the Humphrey Bogart look alike waiter in the beach side restaurant. The shops and markets are fascinating and lots of good restaurants in the evening.
We would definitely recommend Dar Zette to those who want to be close to the action but also value their peace and quiet at home.
Mark and family
Thank you and especially for the name checks on Rachid and Saadia - they really are our local stars who make everything work smoothly.
A treasure in the Médina
Beautifully decorated home, cozy with fireplace and well stocked. We’d definitely stay there again! Great location, close to beach and easy to access.
And we'd be delighted to have you again! Glad you had a Happy New Year with your family.
Everything about this riad is wonderful.
Our adult family of six had the most amazing time at this riad. The accommodation was clean, spacious and offered lots of gathering spaces as well as special get away nooks.
The location is perfect within the medina but close to get out to beach and day trips.
All communication and questions were answered quickly by hosts Ruth and Arnold. Information provided by hosts was very helpful and time efficient when searching for places to eat. Rachid was also there when we needed.
All in all. I can not recommend this riad highly enough. Thank you Ruth and Arnold for creating such a special time and place for our family to be together.
