Tigmi Mzine is a completely renovated, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house in the heart of the medina.
There is a spacious double bedroom with en-suite on the ground floor. A double and a twin on the second floor with a shared bathroom. On the second floor is a lovely sunny open-plan living area with living-dining room and kitchen all in one. There is a log fireplace for cold winter nights, satellite TV, WIFI and a fully equipped kitchen (but no oven). On the top floor is the delightful, south-facing terrace - so lots of sun! The terrace has great views and is totally private, here is a wind and rain protected seating area - great for having meals, sun-downers.

We had a magic stay in Essaouira, with this lovely house as our base. We traveled with our 3 kids aged 4-10, and we all loved Allisons house. Unfortunately she was not in town when we were there, but we were taken good care of by Halima who works for Allison in her two houses. Allison had carefully left a map with her favourite restaurants pinned, and we really liked her advice. The house is situated in a narrow street in the medina, and everything is a short walk from the house. The rooftop terrace is SO beautiful and I enjoyed my morning yoga (Allison had arranged for a mat I could borrow!) up there, and the terrace provided a nice shelter for the wind. I did a little sun bathing up there as a break in the middle of the day after a busy morning in the medina. The only thing that was a little bit on the down side was that the gas heater was empty and wasn't refilled until the next evening which made for a very cold 24 hours. But the fire place provided a nice heat source and relaxing evenings for the grown ups after the children were in bed. The house is so beautifully decorated and everything is thought of. We all loved our stay and we highly recommend it to everyone.
Vi har været gæst i dette dejlige hus midt i medinaen i en uge. Vi blev hentet af Allison ved byporten og fik en venlig modtagelse i huset med en kæmpe frugtkurv. Allison var meget behjælpelig med alt og havde svar på alle vores spørgsmål. Lejligheden ligger meget centralt, så der er kun få minutters gang til indkøbsmuligheder, restauranter og tæppehandlere m.m. Til havnen og stranden er der heller ikke langt, så vi har badet og surfet. Det var meget behageligt, at der ikke kan køre biler inde i medinaen. Vi har specielt nydt den dejlige atmosfære oppe på tagterassen med udsigt over den gamle by. Alt i alt har det været en meget god oplevelse for os fem.
Contact with Allison was correct and to the point. She walked us from Bab Marrakech to Tigmi Mzine, a beautifull little Riad in a convenient and characteristic part of the medina. All the shops you need for supplying your temporarily household are just around the corner. We, two couples, loved Tigmi Mzine. Everything was allright and according to the pictures on Airbnb. The house was clean and everything you need is present. We used the fully equiped kitchen several times. We enjoyed the roofterrace and got used climbing the beautifull stairs. If visiting Essaouira again, I am sure that will happen, we stay of course in Allisons lovely place.
Very nice and clean house. We had a wonderful time relaxing and having fun.
Wonderful and cosy house In the Medina with a lot of natural light coming through a Rooftop window. It is not the best location In the medina, but it does not matter since the walking distances are so short. The houses has many stairs, but it only adds to the charm of the house.
Beds, bath, kichen, living room etc. All was perfect.
Très beau riad très bien situé dans la médina d'Essaouira.
Nous y avons passé trois jours avec nos deux enfants de 4 ans et 2ans et demi et nous avons été ravis tous les quatre.
Le riad est particulièrement propre et tout y est facile, même les grands escaliers qui nous faisaient un peu peur avec nos enfants.
Nous avons juste regretté qu'Alison ne soit pas là pendant notre séjour, nous aurions été preneurs de quelques conseils sur la ville.
I have been living in Essaouira for the last 7 years, and I am still loving it! I am English but have spent most of my life outside the UK.
When you arrive I will meet you at one of the entrances of the medina and bring you to the house. I will explain everything you want to know about the house and Essaouira so that you feel relaxed and comfortable with your new surroundings.
I will always be available to answer questions and queries, so that you can have a wonderful, relaxing, stressful holiday.
Hope to see you soon.
