Description

The space

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...

If you want a peaceful place to escape to at the end of a day exploring, you won't find many places as private & charming, as our little nest here in Essaouira. There are only basic facilities, but we're sure you'll enjoy staying in this unique space..

The nest is situated 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 is made of recycled shipping pallets & is fitted with a very comfortable mattress, 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 clean 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.


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!

Interaction with guests

We are happy to give you advice if needed. You can send us a mail, and you are always welcome to visit Hamza in his shop with an questions during your stay.

The neighborhood

The apartment is located in the perfect area. The old town, inside the city walls. It's in an easy to find & safe location within walking distance to all attractions & sites.

Getting around

Very nice apartment for the adventurous and relaxed seasoned traveler. Amazing roof top view. We unfortunately experienced water pressure issues during our stay, so there was unreliable running water (no fault of the host - just bad timing), but the view made the experience a delightful and memorable adventure. We would return to this wonderful little nest again.

Incredible! The perfect place to hide away in the Medina. Very nicely decorated. No WiFi! But there are some cafés nearby where you can connect. I really enjoyed my stay. It felt like a real vacation.

This place was exactly what we were looking for! The terrace was magical and the flat itself was wonderfully simple and cosy, located in the heart of the Medina. We would absolutely stay there again.

The best hideout. We stayed 4 nights, cooked, read books and relaxed on the amazing roof terrace. The appartment is walking distance to anything you may need. Would definitely stay here again.

Originally Australian, I've been living in Denmark the last 6 years. I've been traveling to many amazing places around the world, experiencing new cultures.

In Morocco we enjoy the simple things in life, cooking , relaxing & exploring this amazing country... When I'm away, Hamza runs the show! He's a fantastic host & will make sure you you feel at home.
