About this listing
Our apartment is located in the geographic center of the Medina of Essaouira. In the house live exclusively local families. Although only a few steps to the shops it is there generally quiet and pleasantly dry.
Here you are living authentical in the middle of the ancient medina of Essaouira. The apartment is located in the second flat of a gouse used only by marocain families. A few steps to the business-streets, 10 minutes to the beach. Upon the flat there is a terrasse, which you may use. It is an ideal place to stay and to visit the arts and music of this lovely town. It is good suitable for 4 persons, with everything you need and built in the authentic marocain style. Although the flat is geogrphically located in the centre of the Medina, there is no noise from the touristic streets.
The terrasse is located directly upon this apartment.and provides a wide view over the whole Medina. You are invited to use it but you should know, that the women from the other flats are using it, too, f.e. to dry the clothes.
I expect that my guests in this apartment are respecting the rules and laws of this country,
The shared terrace is located directly above the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
There is always someone available. But you can determine how you want to lay your contacts themselves.
In the house quite endearing families live. They leave you in peace, and give you as the authentic life of this interesting city.
It is in the pedestrian zone. For luggage or shopping, you can use one of the numerous pushcarts.
Other Things to Note
Please inform us at least 1 day prior to scheduled arrival, when we can expect (morning-afternoon, evening).
The apartment makes it necessary to respect the rules in force in Morocco. The cleaning you take yourself or ask Asmaa, they will assist you in all matters and in all problems.
Nous avons vécu dans cet appartement des vacances idylliques. Asmaa a été charmante et disponible à chaque fois que nous en avons eu besoin. Merci à elle et à Jurgen que nous n'avons pas encore eu la chance de rencontrer. Nous reviendrons.
We needed a place to stay during the Ganoua festival and this was perfect. In the heart of the medina but up a side street so not too busy.
Jurgen and Asmaa met us early and invited us to take tea but we were too tired form the overnight bus.
Would definitely use again.
We had a brilliant stay and will return for sure, we would made to feel most welcome and Asmaa was a lovely addition to a very friendly place! Thanks for the hammam trip and the fish tagine!-my personal highlights! Very clean ,warm blankets and great cooking facilities.
This was pretty horrible. The flat was freezing cold and no fire was provided. The wi-fi mostly didn't work. A nearby neighbour blasts out readings from the Quaaran all morning. All attempts to phone for help were ignored for 4 days. I was not happy ; my wife ( who is Moroccan) was disgusted. Not worth the money and not recommended.
Why not telling the truth? Martin booked 4 days, but came one day late. Why he call 4 days, seems to be his mystery. His wife is Maroccan, booked a flat in the middle of the medina and was disgusted about readings from Koran?
At the end they left 3 sacks of trash, a dirty cuisine, nothing cleaned like they agreed with booking. Beside: WIFI had no problems, but Internet after very heavy rain...
Jurgen has a great place in Essaouira - right in the medina but a litte off to the side so it was nice and quiet once the kids next door went to sleep.
The appartment had everything we needed, spacious and comfortable.
The only drawback was the bathroom and toilet which is all in one small room with no ventilation.
I should also mention that the fridge didn't seal and the freezer door was broken (not an issue for us as we didn't need to store any cold food).
Minor issues for us, I would absolutely recommend staying here.
Die Lage der Wohnung mitten in der Medina ist phantastisch. Sie bietet ausreichend Platz für vier Personen. Asmaa hat uns freundlich Empfangen und uns alle Informationen gegeben. Die Kontaktaufnahme mit Asmaa war problemlos. Leider war in der Wohnung kein WLAN vorhanden. Die Küche ist eher spartanisch ausgestattet. Der Aufenthalt in Essaouia hat uns sehr gefallen
Merci Asmaa pour votre accueil chaleureux et votre discrétion. Elle a envoyé une personne à notre arrivée, proposé un parking privé pour la voiture, elle a toujours répondu aux messages sur d'éventuelles informations.
L'appartement était propre, simple et pratique et situé en plein centre.

About the Host, Jürgen U. Asmaa
Nachdem ich Marokko 1971 erstmals bereiste, habe ich mein Herz in dieses Land verloren, das voller netter Menschen, atemberaubenden Landschaften sowie sehr guter Musik und viel Kunst ist.
Hier und jetzt arbeiten wir, Asmaa und ich zusammen mit ihrer Familie, um euch einen möglichst guten Service zu bieten.
Visiting Maroc in 1971 the first time, I lost my heart to this country, which is full of very nice people, breathless landscapes and very good music, arts.
Here now I work together with Asmaa and her Family to provide you with the best possible Service
