WELCOME TO OUR CHIC & COSY 100M2 APARTMENT WITH A VIEW THAT WILL TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY
U may find a cheaper place to stay but I bet this has the best quality/price ratio you can find! :D
We'll give u tons of tips for TANGIER. We know it well!
New, very clean, stunning ocean views from EVERY room, bright, spacious, marble floors everywhere, garage, absolute best location in the very HEART OF THE CITY, walking distance from everything, 10 minute walk or less to the BEACH, best neighborhood, air conditioning, terrace,...
Our holiday apartment is in a NEWLY constructed building in the heart of Tangier, close to absolutely everything. It's located on the main boulevard (Mohamed V), right next to the Boulevard Pasteur.
It's bright and spacious with BREATHTAKING OCEAN VIEWS of the Port, the Marina, the Bay, the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, Spain and the Medina from EVERY ROOM!!
It's only a 8-10 minute walk away from the Medina and the port but is not as dirty, loud, and you won't be harassed by hawkers who target tourist. This is the absolute center and it totally has the real essence of morocco.
Marble floors throughout!
A nice TERRACE to enjoy the views and feel the wonderful sea breeze!
The building has a swimming pool and we have a spot in the private garage (which is just an elevator ride away, 6 floors below). Very convenient supermarket, cafes, and restaurants onsite...
The KITCHEN is equipped with a stove, oven, 3-door refrigerator (bottom freezer), sink, juice maker, coffee maker and toaster. There are plenty of nice pots, pans, dishes and utensils.
It's totally safe to drink the water from the tap!
The LIVING ROOM includes a flat panal big Satellite TV (Astra and Hotbird) with a Blue-ray DVD player and Hi-fi system.
And a nice leather couch and hard wood furniture.
There are 2 BEDROOMS:
1- The main bedroom has a bathroom en suite and a nice 6 m2 terrace. It's equipped with a queen-sized bed, with lots of closet and storage space.
2- The second bedroom accommodates 2 people. The bed is very interesting: it's very comfortable yet it's also expandable, making it both a single and a DOUBLE bed, 2 twin beds together. It has three large drawers incorporated into its frame.
All the mattresses are brand new and made of memory foam.
A 5th person can sleep in the couch. It's very, very confortable but it isn't a sofa-bed.
There are also 2 BATHROOMS:
1- The one en suite in the main bedroom has a full-size bathtub/shower, sink, toilet and bidet. The walls are made of black Atlas marble, while the floor is of white marble.
2- The second bathroom has a roomy glass-enclosed shower, a sink and a toilet of course, and white marble on the walls and floor.
The AIR CONDITIONING/ HEATER system is fully controllable and reaches every room.
The apartment has a washing machine, iron, ironing board and hair dryer.
A big PARKING space in the garage beneath the building is INCLUDED in the price. This is the very center of the city so if you bring a car, you will be needing it. :)
SMOKING is only allowed on the terrace outside, with the doors to the bedroom CLOSED. This way smokers are happy and non-smokers (like me) too. :) Our guests are totally respectful and It NEVER smells like smoke.
KIDS are welcome if they're supervised and well behaved. They also count as guests.

*All the closets are for you to use. :D
*We have WIFI in the apartment, we recently upgraded the wifi and it works GREAT.
*We provide a USB Internet-Stick to use with your laptop everywhere in Tangier!

Interaction with Guests
We can communicate daily if you want. (Email or whatsapp). If we're not there, Rhimou will take care of everything. :D
The neighborhood is excellent and totally safe. Here you'll find most of the restaurants (cheap, moderate and expensive), bars, stores, boulangeries, pizza places, coffee shops, etc.
The area is very safe but there is also 24/7 security in the building and the parking.
There is an big supermarket (ACIMA) on floor -1 of the building, it is open every day of the week apart from a couple holidays. This is amazingly convenient. It's like having an extra refrigerator downstairs!!!
The apartment is so centrally located that you will probably only take the taxi to/from the airport. You can walk almost everywhere (and if you get tires, blue taxis are very cheap).
Here are some distances by foot:
The Tangier Bay and beach: 8-10 minutes.
The Medina: 10 minutes
The Zoco: 8 minutes
The old port: 10 minutes
The Kasbah: 15 minutes
Café de Paris, Minzah Hotel, etc: 5 minutes
The Airport is about 25 minutes away. Taxi 100DH (about 9€ or $12).
Tangier's port is very close (10-20 minutes by foot, less than 2 minutes by car).
The train Station is 5 min nutes away by taxi.
We have a driver that will take you to Assilah, Chefchaouen, etc. for a better deal than taxis. Ask me in advance. Sometimes this service is not available.
Other Things to Note
The check in will be around 3PM and the check out around 11PM. Of course, this depends on the case! If no one is staying there before/ after your day or check in/check out, it will be flexible.
Very late or very early check in permitted. But you'll have to tip Rhimou for the taxis and incoveniences. :)
We provide, if needed, laundry service, cleannig service and cooking service. All this has an extra charge and must be arranged in advance.
Tangier is also great for all kinds of water activities such as surfing, diving, fishing, sailing, etc. as well as horseback riding, camel riding :) , golf, etc.
You will find maps and guides about Tangier and Morocco in the apartment (in Spanish). The Tourist Office is only 2 blocks away on the Boulevard Pasteur!!
Also, we know really well the city and before your arrival we will send you a big document full of tips and local information that will make your trip to Tangier an amazing one!!!!
*Smoking is ONLY allowed on the terrace after the windows to the smaller bedroom and the sliding doors to the main bedroom have been closed!!! :D We really appreciate your respect regarding this issue. We let you smoke (if you're a smoker) and we assure you the house won't smell like smoke (if you're a non smoker).
*Enjoy the apartment and the city!!! (The most important rule. ;)...).
*Respect the neighbors! :D
*Be very nice and respectful to Rhimou, our caretaker. She's the nicest woman in the world and she's like a member of our family.
*Please, leave the house more or less clean & tidy. The 20€ fee is for a "normal" cleaning of the house, because we assume the apartment will be left in clean conditions. If extra cleaning is needed, 8€/ hour will be taken from the security deposit (that has never happened yet, so don't worry! You don't have to dust or scrub the floors! ;) We just want our apartment to be well-cared for).
*Unless we've arranged otherwise, check in is after 2,30-3PM and check out is at 11-11,30AM. Rhimou needs the place EMPTY between 11,30AM and 3PM.
*Tell us the aproximate time of your arrival and departure around 48 hours before your arrival.
*You're welcome to use the garage for free, but you must tell me BEFORE your trip so that I can arrage the garage pass for you.
*We LOVE animals but pets are not allowed... sorry...
*The tradition in Morocco is to take off your shoes when you enter an apartment or house. Please, TAKE OFF YOURS when you are in our apartment. You'll find slippers at the entrance!
*Please take care of the marble: no lemon, vinegar, wine or strong acids. Also, if something falls onto the floor or bathroom/ kitchen counters, clean it as soon as possible since marble and granite absorb everything and stain quickly. There are plenty of table cloths/ cosaters/ placemats so that you don't feel pressured. :)
*Please turn off the lights/ water/ if not in use.
*Turn off the heater/ air conditioning when you leave the house.
*Read well the instructions I'll be sending you. Also you'll get tons of recommendations about what to do in Tangier!
*Kids are welcome if they're supervised and well behaved.
*Prostitution is illegal in Morocco. The security guards call the police when they detect it in the building and trust me, you don't want to be arrested in Morocco. If that's your plan in Tangier, find yourself another place.
*No parties in the apartment.
*Please take care of our apartment like you would want us to take care of yours... :)
THANX!!!!! And WELCOME!!!
* Respecter les voisins! : D
* Soyez très agréable à Rhimou, notre gardien.
* Sortez de la maison propre et bien rangé. Les frais de 20 € est pour un nettoyage «normal» de la maison, parce que nous supposons que l'appartement sera laissé dans des conditions de propreté. Si un nettoyage supplémentaire est nécessaire, 8 € / heure sera prélevé sur le dépôt de garantie. (Cela n'a jamais encore arrivé, alors ne vous inquiétez pas! Vous n'avez pas à la poussière ou récurer les planchers! ;), Nous voulons juste notre appartement soit bien pris en charge).
* Si nous avons organisé autrement, Check-in après 15 heures et le départ à 11h. Rhimou besoin de la place vide 11 heures-15 heures.
* Si vous voulez utiliser le garage, vous devez me le dire avant votre voyage.
* Fumer n'est autorisé sur la terrasse après les fenêtres de la petite chambre et les portes coulissantes à la chambre principale ont été fermés! : D Nous apprécions votre égard en ce qui concerne cette question.
* Nous aimons les animaux mais les animaux sont interdits ... désolé ...
* La tradition au Maroc consiste à enlever vos chaussures lorsque vous entrez dans un appartement ou une maison. S'il vous plaît, retirez le vôtre quand vous êtes dans notre appartement. Vous trouverez des chaussons à l'entrée!
* S'il vous plaît prendre soin de marbre: pas de citron, le vinaigre, du vin ou des acides forts. En outre, si quelque chose tombe sur les compteurs de sol ou salle de bains / cuisine, nettoyez-le dès que possible car le marbre et le granit absorbent tout et colorent rapidement.
* Veuillez éteindre les lumières / eau / s'il n'est pas utilisé.
* Eteignez le chauffage / la climatisation lorsque vous quittez la maison.
* Malheureusement, il n'y a pas de recyclage à Tanger pour l'instant ...
* Les enfants sont les bienvenus s'ils sont supervisés et bien élevés.
* S'il vous plaît prendre soin de notre appartement comme vous voudriez que nous prenions soin de la vôtre ... :)
Excellent views from the apartment. Really nice and cozy and very clean. In the heart of the city. Worth it!!
Toen we in Tanger waren aangekomen en ook bij het appartement. Hadden we zoiets van wauw! Het uitzicht is op het eerste plaats adembenemend! Alles zag er verder ook verzorgt en netjes uit. De kamers zagen er tip top uit. De omgeving is ook echt super. Alles is dichtbij! Lluvia heeft ook goed het contact met ons gehouden. We konden haar altijd bereiken en toen ik vragen had werd het keurig en op tijd beantwoord.
Bedankt en we zijn zeker van plan om weer hier te verblijven.
Lluvia bedankt voor alles en veel groeten aan rhimou
I stayed with my family in Lluvia's appartment for 2 nights at the end of July and our experience was excellent.
Lluvia is very professional, pays attention to details and takes her appart rental seriously.
The communication with her was easy and fast. The housekeeper, Rhimou, was ontime and very welcoming.
The appart is in a central location with a parking spot in the basement which is very convenient when you have a car rental.
Very clean, spacious, well equipped, modern with a stunning view of the bay and the old city. 2 bathrooms was very nice to have with kids.
Details like fresh flowers, laundry detergent and ground coffee show the quality of service Lluvia provides to her guests.
I highly recommend this appartment which was the best I used so far thru airbnb
My husband, son and I spent a wonderful four days in Lluvia's apartment. The apartment is very central, spacious and bright, as others have shared. Lluvia made an extra effort to reach out to us before our trip to make sure we had all we needed. As we visited Tangiers during Ramadan, it was helpful to have an apartment where we could have meals, as many restaurants are closed during this holiday (especially during the day). There is a supermarket downstairs, a taxi stand outside, and there are many places to change money or get whatever you need.
We had a great stay and would highly recommend Lluvia's apartment to anyone visiting Tangiers.
Great experience. Lluvia is super organized and very quick to respond. She has written instructions in multiple languages to help you find the place and many suggestions of places to eat etc. And the place is very nice - clean and modern, with wonderful appointments. Plus it's an an easy 5 minute walk to the Medina. Excellent choice for Tangier.
Lluvia's apartment is superb, perfect location, really spacious and confortable, and with those amazing views to the beach, the medina, the harbor and even Spain.
She was the perfect host all the way, very easy to comunicate and always there for any information. The recomendations in the blue notebook are very good, however if you go to Tanger in ramadan you'll have to check if some places are open.
The city is very atractive, with nice beaches and the mix of the ancient medina with the modern city. It was a very nice stay, I totally recommend Lluvia's place. Thanks!
The apartment was wonderful, the views breathtaking, and Lluvia was extremely helpful.
The pool was out of order, but that didn't matter much to us.
I'm from Madrid. I live in Madrid and Tangier.
I LOVE MY GUESTS!!!
I am very happy about hosting you in Tangier. I love the city and will try to make your stay here as comfortable and wonderful as possible. You will be welcomed with fresh flowers...
I know the city well and will give you a huge list of things to do (local tips too!). I will even lend you a cell phone with a SIM card for reservations!!!
Cleanliness is the most important thing for me when I travel so I keep my place in Tangier impeccably clean.
Any suggestions, I'm happy to help. Connected to the Internet almosts 18h/day.
I'm looking forward to your stay!
I'm a lover of life!!! I love travel, good local- healthy food and red wine, long walks and nature, the ocean, music and books, diving and surfing...
I don't smoke!
I'm an animal lover and I'm addicted to newspapers and politics.
I "treat" the Airbnb and Love Home Swap houses like I would want other people to "treat" mine, and since I'm in love with my apartment, I only want respectful and clean guests, which I myself am when I'm a guest. ;)
You can write to me in English, Spanish, German or French (learning Arabic... but wow, that's hard!).
