The space

The magical house shares its magic atmosphere with guests in Essaouira!
Situated in a calm, typical part of the old medina, Maison Hiya, is a classic riad, decorated and maintained with attention to detail.
It is nearby Essaouira's main attractions including beach, local vegetable and fish market, shopping streets and port, only five to eight minutes walk to all places.
The house is on four floors, built around an atrium with a glass roof which lets in the light.
On ground floor, there is well equipped kitchen, living room with fire place and guest toilets. On first floor, we call it "the cozy floor», you can find two rooms for kids and parents: one large double bedroom for couple and one cute child's room full of great colors and fun furniture for your kids. The two bedrooms communicate with a typical bathroom with a bathtub, giving good privacy and space.
On the second floor, there are two bedrooms: one double room and one single room. At this floor there is also a shared bathroom for the both bedrooms.
On third floor two comfortable double rooms are proposed. Both of them are on terraces. One has a fabulous view over the medina. There is a private sheared shower for those rooms. At this floor you can find a kitchenette which is usable to all the guests of the house, as the terraces.
The house is perfect for family, group of friends or for couples.
The sunny terrace, the quiet atmosphere and the comfort of the house make it a perfect place to enjoy Essaouira. Ourselves appreciate a lot local foods, varying from fresh fish arriving every day, to fruits, vegetables and meat coming from nearby countryside. We will be very happy to show you where to get all those good things for your meals to prepare at the house or have it cooked in a local café.
The house is perfectly secure. You will be free to take your room key and the main door key with you just like being at home.
Free Internet wireless connection in your rooms and in the entire house is always at your disposal. Cleaning cloth, babysitting or child care is possible, breakfast and other meals can be provided too: those services are available on request with a small additional cost. Extra beds (single bed, baby bed) are available on request for free.
Parking with guardians (20 DH per day) is only 3 minutes walk from the house nearby the small gate of Bab Marrakech.
We are happy to guide and assist you during your stay. We speak arabic, french and english.
We are looking forward to welcome you in our house of sun, flowers, birdsong and quiet atmosphere!

Naima and family were lovely hosts, very helpful, warm and knowledgable about the area. The riad was amazing, very unusual and plenty of space. If you stay, try to get the rooms on the roof or the first floor, as they were the best out of the selection.
