Dar Evening Star is a magical place - looking directly out onto the relaxing sea views on one side, and then straight into the bustle of Essaouira medina on the other. The house itself is expansive with plenty of spaces to hide from kids and parents ! John was super attentive to …

This place is to die for! Right on top of the ocean of the northern shore/wall of Essaouira we found this absolute gem. The bottom floor is quite mysteriously inspired by different parts of Africa. It has a spacious bedroom and a big space for those who enjoy a movie by the fire…

What a magical place, from the word go it was amazing! We were picked up from the airport and taken to the walled gates of Essaorira, where we were greeted by Chip and Charles. On our first full day they took us on a tour of the walled city where Charles guided us around, highli…

Dear Ross, Thank you so much for staying with us and for the lovely things you've said about Dar Evening Star.Our stairs were designed in such a way to be safe and to move you easily from floor to floor in a 350m2 house and I think that we've succeeded...The old 1800´s medina houses here were not designed to accomodate people with disabilities,sad as it is, The UK and the USA far exceed Morocco's abilty to take historic houses and outfit them for the handicapped..nonetheless,we often welcome senior citizens (70 and 80 year olds) at Dar Evening Star and they are simply dazzled by the full renovation as well as the most unique ocean views in the old city and comfortably make their way from floor to floor ,even to our ocean terraces. Our well lit and airy ground floor suite is adjacent to our salon and cinematech,this elegant suite is cozy,dry and warm. Perhaps on your next visit, we welcome you to use this suite so that you can experience it and its lovely feeling,since for this visit,you and your family stayed in our upper floor suites. Thank you ,again,for staying in our unique Ocean house..we look forward to your next visit. John and Charles
