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