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 studio on the big roof terrace is truly a little paradise close to the firnament. Indeed our guests here don't have a tv or DVD player but they can enjoy the luxury of accessing the terrace directly and being in contact straight away with nature. Many plants, partly roofed seating-accommodation, an amazing view over the medina and the sea from a second terrace, a barbeque and the brand new fully equipped hobbit house kitchen shared with the Casa Guapa team create a cosy and warm atmosphere to feel very comfortable.
The studio contains approx. 15 m² and provides space for 1 - 2 people: the lovingly decorated bedroom is equipped with twin beds which can also be put together as a double bed. The bathroom contains a shower & toilet and is accessable via the bedroom.
The guests of the studio and the Casa Guapa team have exclusive access to Casa Guapas terrace kitchen. It is here that we prepare our yummy breakfasts and savoury tajines for our guests - but you are welcome to enjoy this new facility at your leisure.
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.
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.
Every effort was made here to make us feel extremely welcome! A stunningly cool and arty house full of very friendly people, a short walk from the beach and medina, and a perfect place to relax at the end of the day. A gorgeous house and a very pleasant stay that I would recommend to anybody travelling to Essaouira!
We were made very welcome from the moment we arrived (in a taxi organised by Nadine) and the initial orientation tour set us up for the adventures that followed. The accommodation is beautiful even better than the photos show, it was a perfect place to rest and relax and do as much or as little as we wanted. We both felt sad to leave, we felt like we had stayed with friends rather than rented a place and will definitely return. We had just one breakfast prepared which was awesome and my special dietary needs were met better than I could have hoped. I also recommend the massage and local yoga classes, ask Nadine for anything - she could not be more helpful :)
Wir waren vier Nächte bei Nadine. Als wir ankamen wurden wir sehr herzlich von ihrer Kollegin Hayat empfangen, die uns direkt eine kleine Tour von der Umgebung gegeben hat. Casa guapa ist wunderschön und perfekt zum erholen! Wir haben in dem Studio, oben an die Dachterasse angrenzend, gewohnt, mit eigenem Kochbereich, den wir jederzeit nutzen konnten! Es sieht genauso aus wie auf den Bildern auf der Internetseite! Nadine und Hayat versorgen einen mit vielen guten Tipps und Informationen und sind jederzeit erreichbar! Essaouira an sich ist ein netter kleiner Ort mit einer hübschen Medina und einem Hafen. Zum Baden war es leider viel zu windig, der Ort ist jedoch perfekt für Kitesurfer. Ich würde Casa Guapa jederzeit weiterempfehlen! :)
The studio terrace was a dream -- spacious bedroom, private bathroom, adorable kitchen and although the rooftop terrace is "shared", my boyfriend and I had it completely to ourselves during our stay. Casa Guapa is definitely a well-functioning tourism hotel/B&B so they have a lot of premium add-on options (massages, purchasing argon oil, meals prepared for you, etc) available if that is your sort of thing. Beautiful place
Wir kamen spät am Abend an und wurden von Hayat (=die gute Seele des Hauses) sehr herzlich empfangen. Am nächsten Morgen gab es das berühmte Frühstück, das man unbedingt probieren sollte! Alles war so, wie es im Angebot stand - das Zimmer auf der Dachterasse mit einem traumhaften Ausblick war sauber und für uns Zwei genau richtig! Sehr empfehlenswert ist auch die Tajine, die Hesna zubereitet, die bekommt man in keinem Restaurant (reichhaltig und ein Geschmackserlebnis erster Klasse)! Kurz gesagt: es war alles perfekt und wir können es zu 100 % weiterempfehlen! Bezüglich Essaouira wäre noch zu sagen, dass es eine nette, nicht zu große Stadt ist, mit sehr schönem Strand und einer nicht zu großen Medina! Wir genossen die Stadt sehr, denn sie war wesentlich relexter als andere Großstädte!!
Casa Guapa is a beauitul relaxing artistic place to stay as part of your experience in Essaouira.
You will greeted warmly by Nadine or Hayat and made to feel very welcome. Then taken on a 10 walk around the town showing us the beach, medina, where to buy bread, local cheese and all the necessities.
The medina is only a 10/15 min walk, particulally nice along the beach or 7dirhams fixed price in a taxi and are easy find.
We stayed in the studio, and had free use of the kitchen and terrace as we were the ony ones there at the time, a great place to relax in the sun.
The breakfasts on the sunny terrace were delicious and vaired each day, something we looked forward to each morning, all homemade.
Nadine and Hayat were both very helpful and accomodating who take pride in caring and making your stay in Essaouria a rememberable one.
We would definitely stay there again.
A big thanks to you both. x
Nadine ist einfach eine super Gastgeberin und Casa Guapa ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet und sehr erholsam. Als wir ankamen war Nadine gerade verreist und Hayat hat uns zur besseren Orientierung erst einmal die nähere Umgebung von Casa Guapa de Tamzuiga gezeigt. Unser Zimmer war auf der superschönen Dachterasse mt der dazugehörigen Küche, die jederzeit von uns genutzt werden konnte. Das leckere Frühstück rundet das Ganze ab. Morgens wird man unter anderem von den tollen Möwen geweckt , die über das Haus fliegen. Ganz toll!

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;-)
