Come & stay with the birds in our little Birds Nest Apartment. With a completely private terrace, with 360° views to the sea, we're sure you'll enjoy our basic but charming nest...
You won't find many other spots quite as charming as our little nest here in Essaouira. There are only basic facilities, but we're sure you'll enjoy this unique space..
The nest is located at the very top of a old building in the neighborhood previously known as the Jewish neighborhood. It's filled with Moroccan family's and is extremely safe & private. It's in an easy to find part of the Medina with minutes walk to the beach (swimming/kite surfing) the port and an abundance of cafes & shops..
The bed has a brand new mattress, fitted with duck down duvet & freshly washed cotton sheets (not that easy to find here in Morocco..) The kitchenette is small but functional, including a mini bar fridge & Moroccan style gas cooker. The bathroom has a new toilet (!) and hot water shower...
Watch the sunset every night from your private terrace & wake up to the sound of the sea..
This is a tiny apartment, which is why we call it our 'birds nest' - it's one small space with a double bed, small table & chairs, the kitchenette & separate bathroom. It's quite pokey, but very cozy! Perfect for a couple to nest in for some days or a solo traveler to watch the weeks pass by in..
Please note: We won't accept bookings for people traveling with children/babies. The terrace is extremely high, and there are many stairs both in & up to the apartment. Sorry!
We are happy to give you advice eg where to eat locally etc & if you need any other questions answered, we're happy to help during your stay.
If you want to buy something big like a carpet etc and would like someone to go with you so you don't get ripped off, Hamza is happy to go with you to help get you a good price.
Just knock on our door downstairs or give us a call!
There is plenty of parking outside the Medina if you arrive by car. It's about 10dh/24hrs. If you arrive via bus from one of the bigger cities, it's a 5 minute walk from the Supratour bus station.
This is a real Moroccan apartment, not a luxury apartment! There are a few flights of stairs to the top apartment, if you have troubles with stairs maybe reconsider.. Also there are a lot of kids in the block who often throw rubbish on the stairs, so there is often a little trail of biscuit packets etc on the way up!

The Birds Nest Apartment is the little secret of Essaouria! Located in the old medina causes you the true Moroccan atmosphere!
Elly was a fine hostess on distance and Hamza was a great host of his own city. We look forward to come back again soon!
We had a very great time in this cosy and very special place in Essouira. The little appartment is a perfect place to relax, very nicely decorated with a lot of plants. The terrace offers a great view, unfortunately it was very windy while we stayed in town, so we were not able to sit there. It's in the middle of the medina, so everything is very close. We didn't meet Elly, but she answered all our questions very quickly by email and everything was perfectly organised and Hamza took care of us. Highly recommended!
Een prima locatie midden tussen de bewoners. Je moet wel veel trappen op maar dat is logisch als je een dakterras wilt om lekker te zonnen, lezen en te genieten van de uitzichten. Eenvoudig maar schoon. Bij slecht weer is het aan de kleine kant maar als je uitgaat van mooi weer zit je waarschijnlijk vaak op het dakterras of ben je onderweg. Meer dan een bed, een douche/toilet en keukentje heb je dan immers niet nodig! Elly's vriend Hamzah heeft ons erg goed en vriendelijk ontvangen; je kunt met alle vragen bij hem terecht! Kortom: een prima plek als je geen luxe verwacht
We spent a couple of days in Essaouria and found the apartment perfectly suited our needs. Fantastically light and airy and with fantastic views of the city from the awesome roof terrace. Thank you so much!
L’appartement est parfait, fidèle aux photos, simple et beau, très bien situé...La vue de la terrasse très chouette.. Merci Elly !
What a treat! Elly's place is just perfect. The apartment has all you need and spoils you with a breathtaking vistas from the glorious roof terrace, which is one of the highest points in town. Very cosy with superb location takes you on a very memorable journey through Morocco's culture of living. The lovely hosts Elly and Hamza will make your stay a joy and would satisfy all your desires for having a good time! Thanks again!!!
Thanks Elly- my husband and I really enjoyed our stay at your apartment. The terrace was lovely-for both breakfast and sundowners. The bed was super comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Great location in the medina-would definitely recomment!
We had a great time in Ellys unique little apartment. We especially enjoyed the private rooftop terrasse with views of the Atlantic. Elly was very helpful with information and guidance. Highly recommendable!
Had a great stay in the birds nest appartment. Its 1 minute from the main square at the port and has a high private terrace with 360 degree views over the sea and the town.
The appartment was clean and comfortable and the hosts were very welcoming.
My girlfriend and I spent two days in this wonderful apartment. The location is perfect but the views alone are worth staying here for. Hamza and Elly were great hosts and made us feel right at home.
The only bad aspect was having to go home!
