The space

Maison Elma is a unique, open courtyard house in the very center of the unesco listed medina of Essaouira, Morocco.

The house is on two floors with terraces on two floors. The rooms are organized around the courtyard, making it very open and spacious. You have your own peace of sky, and tranquility and can hear the ocean at every time. In the months from May to November it is nice to enjoy the fresh air and temperatures allow to stay outside on the terraces until late at night.

Facilities include a bedroom with a bathroom on each floor, kitchen, living room with fireplace and the two terraces. Internet, clothes washing and cleaning is possible for a moderate fee during your stay.

The house is behind the fish and vegetables market which makes shopping extremely easy and pleasant. Just next door are two Hammams for an authentic bath experience.

We are happy to guide and assist you during your stay.
We speak Arabic, French and English.
We look forward to welcome you in our open terrace house and tranquil atmosphere.

About the city:
Welcome to Essaouira! No longer a mid-1960's hippy hangout (Jimi Hendrix used to party here); Essaouira has evolved into a still-undiscovered gem of pristine beaches, great windsurfing, laid back nightspots and hearty restaurants. The narrow streets keep traffic to a minimum and encourage walking. With little effort you'll find yourself walking past the multi-colored doors, tall stucco-colored houses and the eclectic mix of euro-tourism and weather-worn locals.

We loved the Drissi family's beautiful space, but even more, we really appreciated their hospitality in directing us to everything we were curious about in Essaouira. Definitely visit Naima and Hamid's boutique for some tea on the terrace and to browse a great selection of furnis…

This was our favorite place that we stayed in all of Morocco! Absolutely recommend. Although it didn't have Wi-Fi, it was in the absolute perfect location and everything was very clean and beautiful. Staying anywhere else would be crazy.

We booked the whole Maison Elma for our honeymoon. It is right in the heart of the medina - steps from food, shops, etc - and we could smell wonderful grilled fish, and feel the ocean breeze everyday. It was a wonderful treat to come home and enjoy the open patio. As it is right …

This place is a gem. It is down a side alley in a great part of the medina. It is certainly rustic but very charming with fun and colorful details. We wished we could have stayed longer.
