We had the most wonderful stay at this beautiful house, we really couldn't have asked for more in terms of communication and we felt very looked after at all times by our warm, friendly and discrete hosts, highly recommended, we couldn't have dreamed of a better holiday
Naima and Hamid are the perfect hosts. On arrival Naima showed us around not only the house, but also the town. She made sure we had everything we needed. We were given a local mobile phone to call her if we needed to. She and Hamid were very quick to respond whenever we had a question or needed help.
Maison Hiya, is a very charming and characterful house. It is special. Our rooftop room was perfect for winter sun. We loved the sun terrace which seems to be one of the highest ones in the neighbourhood.
The house is in a quieter part of the medina, the street is occupied by craftsmen making boxes, rugs, clothes in their workshops, but no shops.
A truly fantastic place to stay. Myself and 4 friends rented the house for 3 nights and had a very comfortable stay here. The rooms are spacious and the roof terrace is perfect for chilling out with a few drinks after a long day. Hamid and Naima were great hosts and helped us with anything we needed. A very stylish and clean riad.
Thoroughly recommend this place as it really did make our holiday.
This place is truly beautiful, you fill yourself like in the fairy tail. I ve never been in the house designed such good as this. The comfort level is high, you got everything you need, all facilities are working. Naima is a very pleasant person, she speaks english very good. I would like like to rent the place again if i come to Essaouira.
I would really recommend staying at Maison Hiya. We had a wonderful 5 days at Naima & Hamid's lovely house. Naima was so helpful with organising anything we needed and showing us the best restaurants and where to buy groceries etc. The house is very comfortable and beautifully furnished in a very traditional way with lovely touches here and there. Naima organised for the house cleaning lady (I've forgotten her name) to show us how to make argan oil (for cooking )- It was the most amazing experience! and she showed us where the best Hammon was. Hamid is also great fun and owns a very nice shop....! We could not have had a better pair of hosts- discreetly available if we needed them to help us with anything. Thank you both for such as amazing time and all you did for us, You are both such a lovely couple! Thank you!
