About this listing
We are happy to welcome you to Casa Guapa de Tamuziga and invite you to get to know our lovely house.
Casa Guapa is a very charming spot and earns its reputation as the"beautiful house".
Indeed it is a very adorable and exceptionally designed house.
Casa Guapa attracts attention in the neighbourhood of Tamuziga (this is the very ancient name of Essaouira) and immediately you will discover our differentness to other guesthouses in the old Medina. The individual care about our guests in a familiar ambience is most important to us and at the same time the guests have their own full privacy and space. You can cater yourselves or be pampered by our famous breakfast and enjoy our homemade moroccan dishes at home.
Two individual decorated apartments and one charming studio on the beautiful roof terrace provide convenience at a different level of prices and make Casa Guapa an excellent place to meet interesting people in a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoying the sunset with friends on the roof terrace can be the perfect finale to a pleasurable day.
The apartment on the first floor was beautifully decorated by its charming mistress in accordance with the ancient rules of arabic architecture and individual designed elements. The tadelakt (a traditional technique of painting the walls) in the bathroom and handmade traditional tiles in the whole apartment as well as many other lovely details create a cosy and warm atmosphere to feel very comfortable.
The apartment is with 100 m² very spacious and provides room for 2- 4 people: the big living room contains a dining space for up to 6 people and an open fully equipped kitchen with an american bar and a small balcony. The international satellite TV, a free wifi-connection, a DVD player and our bookshelf with many interesting books in different languages as well as some board games offer you in addition all the comfort to feel really at home. One of the lovingly furnished bedrooms is equipped with a double bed and contains further more a small balcony. The other bed room is equipped with twin beds that can be put together as well. The beautiful bathroom in tadelakt design has a spacious shower. The toilet with a wash basin is separate.
On the groundfloor of Casa Guapa is "Chez Nadine". Her space of living and creativity with a small studio is private, although the sympatic mistress is happy to open her doors for occasionally sponteanous creative, social and culinary activities.
Some of the creations which have been realized in the studio, are as well part of the furnishing on the upper floors of Casa Guapa.
If you are looking for a delicious dinner on the terrace or a relaxing massage, a cleaning lady or a baby-sitter, more knowledge about craft work and special insider tips, or you want to learn how to cook moroccan food – the charming mistress Nadine and her team will be happy to be at your disposal.
If you wish to be pampered with our famous breakfast we offer you this delicious and varied experience as an extra for 5,50 Euros per person and day (kids 4,- Euros).
Communication is easy in Casa Guapa because we speak French, English, German, Spanish and Arabic.
Every guest has free access to the sunny roof terrace, where he can find a comfortable spot to relax.
We provide free wifi internet connection in the whole house.
If you need a taxi from the airport of Essaouira, Marrakech or Agadir, we can organise your personal driver to pick you up there and bring you straight to Casa Guapa.
Guests travelling by car can park easily and free of charge in front of the house.
Casa Guapa is located in the quarter of "Azlef" opposite of Hammam Ghita (typical arabic bath, spoken: Rita), in the middle of the center of New Essaouira.
Different to the turbulent and busy life of the acient Medina you will feel here straight away being part of the moroccan neighborhood and at the same time it is only a 15 minutes’ walk by foot to the Medina, its impressive harbour and the main tourist attractions of the city, 8 minutes to the beach and 2 to the forest.
Small taxis are also circulating for 50 cents per ride everywhere in town. The new but not touristy Hammam and shopping facilities like supermarkets, bakeries, laundries and cafés are conveniently situated just around the house.
hier bedarf es keiner besonderen Erklärung. Die Unterkunft ist einfach der absolute Hammer ! Herzlicher Empfang der Vermieterin mit kurzer Einführung in das Leben von Essaouira, anschließend Führung durch das ganze Haus. Wir hatten das Appartement im ersten Stock, große Küche voll ausgestattet, geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Wohnzimmer, Bad, Wc und 2 Schlafzimmer. Auf dem Dach gibt es noch eine Terrasse mit tollem Ausblick. Hier gibt es auch ein Super Frühstück (5,50 €,lohnt sich aber alle Mal).
Also erst gar nicht lange weiter suchen, wenn was frei ist---sofort buchen !!
We had a lovely time in Essaouira and it was a much needed break from Marrakech. Casa Guapa is a lovely space filled with art and plants. Nadine really has put her heart and soul into the space. There are three apartments in the building. We had a ton of space in the apartment we booked and it was very comfortable. We also had fresh flowers in the apartment when we arrived which was a nice touch. The rooftop is a great place to relax and enjoy the sun. We had breakfast 3 times and it was superb every time.
When we first arrived Nadine walked us around the neighborhood and showed us the bakery (Patachou - try it!), breakfast place, CTM bus stop etc. (Take CTM over Supratours - they were more organized and easier to deal with both in Marrakech and Essaouira) The apartment is about 10 minutes from the beach and 20 minutes to the medina by foot. We had a great dinner at the Caravane Cafe one evening and we also enjoyed lunch at Ginger Cafe in the medina. If you are looking for a relaxed Moroccan experience head to Essaouira and stay outside the medina at Casa Guapa. The only small negative is that there is some street noise that you can hear in the apartment at night, but that did not really bother us.
We very much recommend Casa Guapa. Thanks Nadine for everything!
Great place to stay in Essaouira. The beach is about a 10 minute walk away and the town about a 15 minute walk away. The apartment is decorated authentically and there is a great roof top to relax. The apartment really is spacious and and was extremely comfortable for the four of us. There are also two balconies in the apartment. The kitchen is huge and has everything you need. We also felt very safe there, which was a nice change after some bad luck in Marrakesh. The only slight complant was the transfer from Marrakesh to Essaouira. We paid 600 dirham and expected a mini-van with aircon. Instead, an old mercedes with no aircon picked us up and it was a very hot and sticky drive to Essaouira (although the drive was extremely nice). If I knew this, I would have saved some money and opted for the airconditioned tourist bus, which would have been more confortable. The return was far better, after we asked for a mini-bus. Other than that the apartment really is perfect.
Une rue dans le centre d ESSAOUIRA une façade d immeuble toute fleurie ou une magnifique porte s'ouvre.Nadine nous a accueillie avec un grand sourire pour nous faire découvrir un appartement plein de charme de couleurs et de détails délicats jusqu aux roses.
Une Terrasse d exception ou le petit déjeuner nous est servie avec des produits frais et locaux.Nadine nous a également guidée et conseillée pour les diverses endroits à découvrir.
Une belle rencontre avec une artiste qui a su faire de sa maison un endroit charmant à proximité de la plage et de la médina.
If you love the aesthetics of Antonio Gaudi in Barcelona you will love this place, which has quite a similar sensibility. It is decorated with great imagination and extremely spacious. The TV isn't all it could be, but that's about the only criticism I can come up with. It's in a quiet residential district about a ten minute walk from the beach. It has an amazing roof terrace, where Samira will prepare a sensational breakfast for you if you so choose.
This is an absolutely fantastic place to stay and Nadine and Samira are wonderful wonderful hosts. We stayed in Apt 1 with our 2 year old son and thought the apartment was incredibly comfortable. It is really well located five mins from the beach and out of the medina (which we thought was a real bonus - living alongside 'real' Essaouirians!). Casa Guapa has a delightful terrace and gets the sun all day (or you can hide from the sun in the lovely shady spots). Nadine and Samira could not have done more to make us feel welcome - Samira even showed us all the good places to buy treats! (great patisserie round the corner). We are planning our next trip back to Casa Guapa already. Essaouira is a perfect place and Casa Guapa the perfect home while you are there. Highly recommended!!! Thank you Nadine and Samira.

Nadines hus ligger fint mht indkøb og i et stille kvarter. 10-15 min gang til medinaen, hvor de eksotiske oplevelser står i kø.
1.sal var stor og godt indrettet. Februar måned lige det køligste...men der var fine opvarmningsmuligheder.
Nadine selv ualmindelig sød og hjælpsom: begynder med lille rundvisning i kvarteret, hvor div forretninger blev udpeget. Hun har virkelig sat sit præg på sin ejendom, fra stue til tagetage, ja selv ude på fortorvet ser man inspirationskilden Gaudi...
Fødselsdagsmorgenmaden helt i topklasse.
Nadines hus er, som hun selv - unik i ordets bedste forstand.
Kan varmt anbefale ophold i CASA GUAPÅ

About the Host, Nadine
In these times of acceleration and technological dependency it is most important to calm down and to start to share again with other people the more natural way of life back to the roots! With my little project "Casa Guapa" I want to set up a special place in a creative and artistic ambience for an interesting and stimulating interchange and to share with travellers from all around the world life experiences. To feel home and comfortable in an uncomplicated, open and warmhearted surrounding supported by good healthy food and things to do away from touristic mainstream - that's what my heart fulfillls with joy and pleasure and that is what I like to share with you;-)
