About this listing
A private bedroom with balcony is 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, 1.5 baths, salons, dining room, lift, & private parking.
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 with big modern sofa and wide-screen television, full kitchen, 1.5 baths, two enclosed balconies and a huge private terrace.
The nightly fee gets you your own private bedroom. It has one queen-sized bed and a full-sized air mattress and pump for a 3rd or 4th guest. Fee includes all linens, towels, pillows, for up to four guests and everything has been freshly cleaned. Guests also get use of the rest of the home (living room, kitchen, balcony, full & half bathrooms, & terrace), which is fully stocked. Your bedroom and the extra salon both get great sunlight. The bedroom has generous closets and an enclosed private balcony. The large salon has handsome carved ceilings and is furnished with comfortable modern sofa as an area for lounging or reading or taking meals. The full bathroom is huge and beautiful and has an enormous shower. The half bathroom is great to have in case the other is in use. 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 days, but often available in the evenings. 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 Morocco is significantly easier to navigate with the help of a local, as maps and street signs are sparse or outdated much of the time.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.
This home is in an ideal central location but conveniently apart from the hustle-bustle on a quiet, safe 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 where you can observe fisherman on the rocky cliffs. There also Rabat beach for swimming and surfing about a 20 minute walk away. If you are interested in surfing/paddleboard/kayak rentals let me know because I have a few connections!
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/Central Market and 800 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!
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!
You will be given a key for the duration of your stay and have no restrictions about hours of coming and going. You will have full access to the kitchen, terrace, both living rooms (one of them you can use as an additional sleeping room as needed) laundry room, etc. You are requested to clean up after yourself, especially in the shared spaces and be courteous to me and the neighbors.
I'm sorry but you're not permitted to bring people home with you unless they are long time friends of yours.
I have a really great instant hot water heater that makes very hot water, but I ask that you turn it on when you need hot water for dishes or showering or laundry, and turn it off again afterward to save propane.
