A private bedroom, balcony, 1/2 bathroom, & salon are available for you in my home in historic downtown Rabat. The spacious & modern flat is ideally located & includes wi-fi, a full kitchen, laundry, huge terrace, two baths, lift, & private parking.

The Space

Peaceful and spacious, my flat is modern and comfortable with ample space indoors and out, including a large guest bedroom, full dining room, huge salon that guests can use privately if they wish, full kitchen, 1.5 baths, two enclosed balconies and a huge private terrace.

Guest Access

The nightly fee gets you your own private bedroom. Additional guests have use of a large private salon with space for two to sleep. Guests also get the privileges of their own private 1/2 bathroom, and the use of the rest of the home (living room, kitchen, balcony, full bathroom, & terrace). Your bedroom and the extra salon both get great sunlight. The bedroom has generous closets and an enclosed private balcony. The bed is big and can be separated into two single beds if desired, so between the bedroom and salon, it is possible to accommodate up to four people on singles or two couples on double-beds. The large extra salon is the biggest room in the house, with handsome carved ceilings and is furnished with comfortable new Moroccan-style sofas as an area for lounging or reading or taking meals. The full bathroom is huge and beautiful and has an enormous shower. The whole house has new tile floors, new appliances, and everything you need to feel at home. The guest room has a lock and key on the door, so you can lock your bedroom and take the key with you when you're out of the house. I have the fastest wi-fi plan available in Rabat and it is very reliable.

Interaction with Guests

I'm a busy woman and am usually out of the house working during the mornings, but often available in the afternoons. I'm available to my guests for tea, questions, navigation help, or tours around the city when I have free time. Morocco is significantly easier to navigate with the help of a local, as maps and street signs are sparse or outdated much of the time. I have maps of Rabat for you to use, and can point out some of my favorite spots or let you know what cultural events are happening that week. I am a Native English speaker and also available for the occasional translation help for English speaking guests who need assistance navigating in the French/Arabic system, or tips with regard to Moroccan culture or Islamic holidays and customs.

The Neighborhood

This home is in an ideal central location but conveniently apart from the hustle-bustle on a quiet wide one-way street! Located in the famous Ocean Quarter, between the old Medina and the Atlantic Ocean. Our little neighborhood has everything you need from top-notch butchers and vegetable stands, cafes, pizza, there is a hammam (traditional bath house) just around the corner and even a public oven where you can wood-bake anything you want for $1. There are traditional and also modern options for dining, shopping, and living. To a large extent, I participate in both and can offer to help you with either.

The ocean is only a few blocks away and there are athletic fields, ruins, and rocky cliffs to explore near my home. There also is a beach for swimming and surfing about a 20 minute walk away. If you are interested in surfing rentals let me know because I have a few connections!

Getting around

This apartment is central to everything in downtown Rabat and you can walk everywhere! It is located just 550 meters west of the Gates of the ancient Medina and 850 meters east of the Atlantic Ocean. Easily walk 18 minutes (1.4km), or ride in a petit taxi to the downtown Rabat train station, or hop on at one of the two tram stations located within 400 meters of the house to travel around the city cheaply on light rail! It may sound impossible to be this close to all the great things and also on a quiet street but somehow it is true! That is why my home is the best place in Rabat. You also have your own private parking space under the building as well.

Other Things to Note

Ask me if you have any questions about getting to and from Morocco. There is lots to do here in the capital city... from Salsa dancing to music festivals... there is always something happening!

In addition to teaching English, I'm also a yoga teacher and masseuse, so I'm also available for private lessons and treatments -- either at home or at the gym where I work, but you must ask me in advance!

I'm flexible about your check-in and check-out times, and if I have no other guests coming or going you are welcome to come early and stay late on your arrival and departure days if you ask ahead of time.

Rabat is the most European city in Morocco and the most modern and calm. It's a great place to start on a trip around Morocco. I also have friends who arrange surfing tours on the coast and tours to the desert on the weekends, so if there is something you desire to see or do in Morocco, I'd be happy to connect you to someone in my network!

  • Nicole's replies to my emails were very prompt and very detailed, she wrote extensive directions to get to her flat and various options to arrive from the airport, including information about costs and durations of different means of transport. She was there to greet us, but also left alternative means for contacting her. The room was lovely, it had its own key -if you needed that, and the flat was very welcoming and in a nice, quiet area. Nicole is amazing and very friendly; we arrived late and left the next morning, but we had a good chat over tea; she also offered us pointers for shopping an getting around. It was a great experience. We would definitely recommend staying at her place in Rabat.

  • Really enjoyed my stay with Nicole in Rabat. The apartment is clean and tidy and there is a nice lounge area to relax as well. Nicole made me feel very welcome.
    The location of the apartment is ideal and walking distance from the city and also has the tram located nearby. Would highly recommend staying here.

  • We stayed with Nicole for six nights and had a most restful and relaxing time. We felt quite at home in the flat and appreciated being able to cook if we wanted or to use the living areas. Nicole is a busy lady but was always ready to answer any questions we had. The flat is conveniently located and there are good local shops and restaurants nearby. Highly recommended for a stay in Rabat.

  • We had a really nice time with Nicole. Her apartment was perfect and clean and all ready when we've arrived, and she was very helpful with information about Rabat, and about transport etc. It was a really nice stay :-)

  • Un magnifique séjour chez Nicole. J'ai beaucoup apprécié d'être traité par elle comme un coloc. Rien n'a cloché. Tout était comme je l'espérais. J'espère qu'elle aura d'autres visiteurs francophones car elle ne maîtrise pas encore cette langue but she tries, tries, tries...
    A recommander. Sans restriction.

  • Nicole's flat was spacious, bright and central, with a very comfortable bed. She gave us excellent directions for finding the place, and to local amenities. She also let us do laundry, provided breakfast, and let us enjoy her sunny roof terrace.
