There are not enough good things I can say about Nicole, Amina and this riad. My boyfriend and I are frequent users of airbnb and this is one of the most special places we have stayed. Nicole made every effort to make our stay run smoothly, even organising our airport transfer with Samir and a candle-lit, welcome dinner cooked by Amina (which was delicious - highly recommend having this, particularly if you have an evening flight into Marrakesh!). Amina is charming, and even though my boyfriend and I are, frankly, rubbish at French, the language barrier didn't seem to be a problem. We organised a day trip to the Atlas mountains with Samir, which was a lovely escape from the hustle and bustle of Marrakesh. The riad in itself is beautifully designed, well- equipped and in a great location within the Medina. Thank you Nicole - we had a great time.
Nicole has been an absolute pleasure to work with. The Riad was our oasis in the madness of the medina. Amina was also wonderful and a great cook. For those who care, we found the wifi to be excellent too. Overall, this was a great place!
from the first step into the riad it felt like paradise, we appreciated the harmony in every detail when we started to have an extraordinary time in nicole's riad...as well we loved the streets around being lively and authentic...
bought some fish from an old man and ate it on the wonderful rooftop terrace..what a lifestyle...
What a treat, what an absolute pleasure to stay at Nicole's Riad. From the moment we walked in we were transported into an oasis in the heart of Marrakesh. Nicole's amazing style permeated every corner of the Riad, making every moment there feel like a blissful retreat. Every detail has been thought of from welcome tea to the most AMAZING breakfasts. We would go back tomorrow if we could, what a phenomenal host and a beautiful home. An absolute perfect 10!!!
We had a great stay in Nicole´s beautiful riad in this very colourful and local part of the Medina. Communication with the owner was very good and she gave us great recomendations and sorted out transport for us on arrival. Amina´s breakfast on the roof terrace was fantastic as well the homecooked dinners she made. Nicole has a great eye for interiors and the whole house is amazing. And the beds were great! Thanks for everything!
The Riad is really amazing. It is beautiful, spacious, clean and Nicole is a great host. She was extremely helpful in planning our trip, with great recommendations. Amina was wonderful, and her cooking is to die for, she made us a dinner that was one of our favorite in the city, and the breakfasts and tea were great too. I have nothing but great things to say, and I highly recommend Nicole and this Riad!
We had a wonderful stay at the riad. The place is really beautiful and it feels like a home away from home. Nicole is an excellent host!
Everything is just perfect. The rooms, the roofterrace, the bathrooms, everything.
We would recommend staying in for dinner en try the homemade vegetable tajine from Amina. It is a feast!
We would recommend a stay at this beautiful riad at a good spot in de medina.
La Maison, located in the eastern medina, is a wonderful oasis of peace and comfort. Beautifully decorated, it provides a stylish alternative to hotel life. The rooftop garden is the perfect spot to start your day with a fresh orange juice and a healthy breakfast, or while away a few lazy do-nothing hours on comfortable cushions under a brilliant azure sky. And then, when the mood takes you, plunge again into the busy streets and souks just a few metres away. Together, Nicole (the owner), Amina (who comes each day to make breakfast), and Samir (who provides the transport) make for a stress-free and totally enjoyable week in Marrakech. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
We've just got back from an amazing few days at la maison. The house is stunning, amina is lovely and Nicole couldn't be more helpful. I've travelled the world and rarely stayed anywhere better
Staying at Nicole's riad was a great experience! The communication was very good - fast, helpful and sweet. The riad is beautiful and Amina is an excellent cook. We recommend future guests to try her tasty meals for dinner :).
Nicole was a great guest. Very clean and respectful of our place. We would love to have her back is she comes to SF!
Everything worked out just perfectly and the apartment was treated respectfully and left clean and tidy. Always welcome! Thanks!
Nicole is a real creative spirit and you can really see it in her riad. A perfectionist in every part of her life, she makes the perfect host on your holiday. She's the go to person when it comes down to staying in a unique and beautiful place, eating amazing food and recommending the best of Marrakech. Enjoy your stay!
Nicole's a super creative person and a very welcoming host! Her riad in Marrakesh is absolutely stunning! She re-built the entire house from the ground up and the result is a little fairytale retreat. The decor and design are gorgeous and I am already looking forward to our next visit.
nicole is a good friend and a wonderful human vein. A perfectionist who has the greatest eye for detail which makes her good at anything she puts her mind to. She really cares about her guests and is the most hospitable and considerable girl on airbnb i am sure!
Nicole is a great friend and a hard-working girl.
She's very passionate about the things she does. This makes her a wonderful host. I'm glad to have her as a friend and I can recommend her to anyone.
this is the most stunning place ever!!!!! it really is heaven on earth ... i would highly recommend it if you fancy a trip to marrakesh ... and sleeping out on the roof under the stars in truly magical!!
