House Rules

HOUSE RULES - JUST A FEW THINGS......

*BREAKFAST
Every day our caretaker comes between 8.00 - 13.00 to make you breakfast at your preferred time. To make communication easy, take 1 of the breakfast sheets, filling it in according to your desires (using 1 sheet for all to make things easier) and place it in the kitchen the night before.

*SERVICE
Our caretaker is the caring soul of this house and will help to make your stay more pleasant and comfortable. She takes care of breakfast, plants, sweeps through the house and checks, if you are well supplied. We kindly ask you to respect, that there is no allowance for self-service or access to private storage spaces, so please speak to her after breakfast, in case you need some stock-up on toilet paper or towels to be replaced. LA MAISON is a private house, not to be mistaken with a fully serviced RIAD or GUEST HOUSE, your rooms might not be cleaned on a daily basis.

*COOKING
We do offer occasional home cooking on demand. As we need to make arrangements, please book your dinner(s) in advance prior to your arrival, offering you a custom made menu for a reasonable budget. you just need to put the amount mentioned into THE BOX OF HONESTY in the living room and write down in the little book your name, date and how much you put in.

*THE FRIDGE & THE KITCHEN
There is a big fridge in the kitchen, which also serves to stock the items and food meant for providing your daily breakfast from our side. We count on you to kindly respect (especially when you are traveling with children), that those storages should please not be touched during the day, or if, then kindly be replaced or payed for. However there is available space and you are welcome to store your own purchases in case of need.


*WASHING MACHINE & PRIVATE STORAGE SPACE
The storage and laundry space is a private area, as well as all wardrobes and lockers not situated in your rooms. access is not allowed!! However, free washing service is supplied, just ask our caretaker and give her the items you wish to be cleaned, she will take care of it.

*SUN BATHING & CHILLING ON THE ROOF TERRACE
In Moroccan culture the roof terrace is a common place for drying laundry. All roof spaces are on various levels and can be seen in by the surrounding neighbors. We kindly ask you by respect for our local neighbors, their culture and religious beliefs to refrain from topless or nude sunbathing, as this represents an offense and insult and does result in unpleasant reactions and an undesirable disrespect for us and our guests in the neighborhood, which would be a shame. We have had complaints and would wish to respect our neighbors' ethic and culture by avoiding those incidents. We strongly count on your understanding.

*PHOTOS & PHOTOSHOOTINGS in La Maison

You are most welcome to take photos around the riad to document your stay and to keep for your own pleasure and posterity. We are more than happy for you to do this.

However, in case you do intend to use our location for commercial photo shoots, photographing merchandise, fashion, portraits or other set-ups for commercial use which may be appearing in social media, or on webcites, or in magazines or any other publication, kindly please mention this in your inquiry.

A booking via airbnb entitels you to sleep and stay in our nest, photo shoots will be invoiced seperately based on a common agreement and depending on your request. Please note you cannot change the decor of our property or inject your own products for the pupose of styling a shoot. Disregard of our ground rules, photo shoots for commercial purposes and without our prior agreement, and commercial self-promoting on any kind of social media, will be considered a contravention of our house rules. We kindly ask you to respect our wishes and requests in this matter. For further clarification on this matter please do get in touch.

*LOCAL GUESTS & SLEEPOVERS
bringing locals (moroccan girls or guys) for various purposes to guesthouses in morocco is strictly forbidden by law. we will risk penalties and pursuit by law and a lot of unpleasant problems, if our neighbors report those incidents. further it is important to refrain from those actions by respect for our neighbors, our reputation and the safety of all our future guests.

*CAREFUL
Drinking tap water is NOT recommended. it is not dangerous and locals drink it daily. by experience i would recommend to buy drinking water from the local shops or profit from our water stock in the house. we charge 10 dirhams per bottle. Showering and brushing your teeth, washing food or having a few ice-cubes in your drink is without any danger or harm.

*TOWELS & SUPPLIES
Fresh towels and toilet paper will be supplied only on your demand, no self service or access to the storage&supply closed, but please kindly check with the staff, to hand out whatever needs to be replaced after your daily breakfast

* SOME GREEN THOUGHTS
Before leaving the house or going to sleep, please check, if all lights or other electric devices are turned off (as by experience in general lights in bathrooms, WC, roof terrace and rooms as well as the pool spot get easily forgotten)

*THE FIRE PLACE (S)
There are 2 chimneys in the house, which come to action mainly from December until February. we supply wood for your free use.

*TRUST
As everything is on a trust basis, extra guests apart from the number of guests booked during your stay as well as spontaneous "sleepovers", or dinner parties with locals or acquaintances not staying in LA MAISON, are not allowed! We count and trust in you respecting this request.

*BOTTLES & THE BOX OF HONESTY
Alcohol still remains a delicate subject and is basically not available in the medina by respect to the Islamic culture. The next supermarket is quite a ride out of town, so there are some supplies in the house, in case you have this craving feel of enjoying a glass of wine with your delicious home cooked meal. We trust our guests, to put the money for every bottle of wine or cava, into the little "BOX OF HONESTY" in the living room, writing down in the little book next to it your name, what bottle you took and how much money you put into the box. This is important for us to keep track:

-Red wine/rose/ 140,-dirham per bottle
- Water/ 10,- dirham per bottle (sparkling or still)

*ANIMALS
Any kind of domestic animals are not allowed in the house (including cats, dogs, ...turtles, leguans, reptiles, snakes or any other species from the local market)

*COMMUNICATION
For any doubt, query, demand or communication issue with the staff during your stay, please contact me directly via email, sms, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or (website hidden), I will be online and reachable at any time in-between a maximum delay of a few hours.

Email: (EMAIL HIDDEN)

Nicole's place was just as pictured. She's very easy to communicate with and her small team of home caretakers are the sweetest and most kind. The riad is located in the Medina so be prepared to be immersed in all Morocco has to offer. We had everything we needed on our trip and the riad was located conveniently close to the square and souks. We were there over the Eid holiday so a lot of places were closed and Nicole went out of her way to find us local restaurants that would be open, made us reservations, and set us up with a driver to take us both ways. Super. Host. You can tell Nicole's home is her pride and joy--it is well kept and maintained.Merci to everyone at La Maison for making this trip extra special and welcoming. I will dream about Hanane's homemade breakfast 'til I get to come back and visit again--Hopefully sooner than later.

We had the most amazing time here. The Riad is beyond beautiful and we had it all to ourselves which was extra special. Breakfast on the rooftop was the best way to start our day. Nicole was so easy to communicate with and the lovely Hanane was so friendly and welcoming during our stay. We would highly recommend staying, it as a dream. X

Fantastic ! Nicole was amazing to communicate with and made sure we had transportation to and from the riad. Breakfast was a treat as well as our dinner we ordered ! Doesn't get much better than a private dinner on a rooftop terrace! The riad itself is absolutely stunning and we truly loved getting to live there the past two days. I would love to come back next time I am in Marrakech. :)

Nicole's place was absolutely amazing. She allowed us to stay with very little notice on our behalf and she went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Nicole and the housekeeper cooked us a delicious feast on the first night and it was the best food we had in morocco. The Riad is absolute beautiful and pictures will do it justice. Thank you so much for having us Nicole, we will recommend you to everyone.

La Maison became so much more than a vacation home to me, it became a home away from home and sanctuary! The lovely decorated and curated home of Nicole is so much more - the relaxing pool, beautiful terrace, comfortable bed, big bathroom, fun dining slash study room, superb meals by the lovely Hanane. It's the lovely service and smile that Hanane adds to the mix that made my experience so fulfilling, she made me feel like family. After a long day of walking, nothing beats a lovely homey place to decompress and shut the world out. It's been a long time since I've been able to just sit still and enjoy not doing anything - which ultimately is what vacation is. And if I had a quick question or request, Nicole was quick to give a response and give instructions to Hanane. She's a lovely host and Hanane was the best cook! You seriously have to try her dinners at some point, I had the pleasure of eating her deliciously prepared breakfast and dinners the day I arrived and during my last night. Thank you Nicole for the lovely gift that is your home to people who need to take care of themselves such as myself. I've been able to experience such calm, enjoyment and reflection during my stay! Can't wait to come back! You seriously have to book this place if it's available, you will understand the moment you walk in!!!

La Maison Marrakech is absolute heavenly perfection. A beautiful and blissful oasis from the wonderful chaos of the Medina outside. Housekeeper Hanane is a darling and communication with Nicole was easy and comprehensive. Morocco is one of my most favourite places in the world and I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Marrakech.
