About this listing
A well-known photographer from Casablanca and his wife open uthe doors of their house and garden to you, in the quiet residential area of Oasis. Very close to all facilities including a railway station, tram and shops.
In a house dating from 1938, renovated over the years, you will have a private suite of 30m2 looking onto a mature garden and a bathroom walled with mosaics and tadelakt (a traditional Moroccan wall covering) including a closet.
You will have an independent entrance through the garden which is a green oasis with its many trees including five huge palm-trees; here you can sit and read or just day-dream.
Breakfast will be served in a veranda next to your room looking out at the blue courtyard in winter, or in the garden as soon as it is warm enough.
It is possible to order meals.
A cot is available (for a child up to 2 years old) (10€ for 2 nights), a chair for children is also avalaible for meals.
Guarded parking available nearby.
Your French hosts, who have travelled widely in Morocco and know the country well, will be able to give you any advice you need about your ongoing journey and will do everything they can to make your stay in their “Oasis” peaceful and relaxing in this bustling city. A perfect place to stay 2 or 3 days before exploring the country or for longer stays such as business trips or for ‘European storks’ hankering for sunshine and light!
Outside your suite, you are free to go wherever you like in the garden, you can sit and have a smoke for example as your suite is non-smoking.
Interaction with guests
Zellige, your hostess, will be happy to give you any advice you may need to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. She will make your breakfast. This is her favourite moment of the day.
The area is like a village. We are one minute’s walk away from the shops: open market, bakery, newsagent, bank, post office, petrol station, small supermarket as well as a small fifties’style café-restaurant.

Bonjour nous sommes Zellige et Michel.
Casablancais dans l'âme ; Michel est natif et Zellige en a fait sa ville d'adoption depuis 38 ans.
Amoureux fous de ce beau pays, le Maroc, nous l'avons parcouru jusqu'aux confins de ses déserts, et ce n'est pas fini !!
Voyageurs de part le monde aussi, nous préférons toujours un b&b pour nos étapes afin de rencontrer et d'échanger avec les habitants.
Habitués à recevoir nos nombreux amis depuis toujours, nous aimons avoir de la visite et ouvrir notre havre de paix. Nous aimons le partage tout en respectant l'intimité de chacun. La maison s'y prête bien.
Nous vous y accueillerons avec plaisir.
Hello we are Zellige and Michel
We have lived in Casablanca for many years..... Michel was born here and Zellige made it her home 38 years ago. We love this beautiful country of Morocco which we have explored right to the furthermost borders of its deserts and we still have more to see!
We have also travelled extensively throughout the world and always prefer to stay in b&b’s so we can meet and talk to the locals.
We have always enjoyed welcoming our many friends to our peaceful home which we love to share, whilst respecting the privacy of our guests. Our house is ideal for this.
We look forward to welcoming you too.
