Appartement Mouette


Appartement Mouette was completed in 2006 and is located 5-10 mins walk from the beach & 15 mins from the Medina. It provides basic self-catering accommodation for up to 5 people and is ideal for holiday makers looking for somewhere simple but safe and clean to stay whilst visiting Essaouira. It suits people who wish to eat out generally although there are facilities for making simple food within the apartment.

Rooms comprise a kitchen (with fridge/freezer, gas stove & utensils), 2 bedrooms (one with double and single, second with twin beds), sitting room, shower room and small sunny terrace with outside table and chairs. If necessary, a travel cot can be borrowed from friends who also own a property in Essaouira, provided it is not being used by guests at their home.

Since the owner purchased the apartment, a maritime college has been built between the apartment at the sea, however it is not an unattractive building and makes the apartment easier to locate.

Very near the apartment are two well stocked supermarkets and a pharmacy which should sell all that you might require. Also in close proximity are several cafes – in particular Maison Gourmande offers a fabulous selection of pastries and is wonderful for breakfast or a coffee stop at any other time.

There are not bars as such in Essaouira. Aside from the hotels, alcohol is only served with food. There are a couple of cafes/bars at the south end of the beach and a wonderful selection of restaurants in the medina and harbour.

Fantastic value for money! The apartment was brilliant, perfect for our needs, 2 couples. It was the perfect little hide away from the crazy life outside, markets etc. It was exactly as we thought it would be. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and is about 15 min walk from the apartment. Nice lots of hot water and big fridge, comfortable beds and warm quilts. We loved it!!

I have already told everyone I know about this apartment as it was my second year in a row visiting Essaouira staying in Apartment Mouette. Its a 15 minute walk to the beach 20 minutes to the Medina, decorated simply and beautifully with everything you could need for a self catering beach holiday. Mohammed is very helpful and will pop over if you have any issues and happily arrange a taxi back to the airport for you. The apartment is great value for money and I will DEFINITELY try and return next year if I can. The only reason Id be hesitant about leaving positive feedback would be because people might read it and then book up the whole of next year! If you can, stay in Essaouira for two weeks because every day youll find something really interesting/beautiful/tasty(!) or come across a new little street to explore.

We spent a very good time in Essaouira. The property is placed nearby everything you can need. It is small but very confortable for four/five people. The apartment owner and manager were very kind and allways ready to help.

AMAZING property, fantastic service and all round great people to deal with! The propertys abut a 5 minute walk from the beach, and a 10 minute walk from the kitesurfing ened of it. Mohammed is great, Amy was brilliant and the neighbours were also fantastic! Overall this property was awesome - the rooms were lovely and it was such good value for money! will definitely go back again!!
Lovely apartment with ample space for couples and small families. Nice spacious living area, which is very well finished and furnished. Charming best describes it. However, the bathroom is a little cramped. Nicely located for the beach, and there are plently of nearby little shops and the local patisseries are beautiful. The old Medina is a pleasant 15/20 minute walk or local mini taxis ferry you around for about 50p!! Whilst the apartment provides excellent accommodation, the kitchen facilities are good for breakfast and a light lunch, they might struggles to accommodate people looking to regualry cook meals for a family - but were fine for us!
The apartment was exactly as described on the website, and was very comfortable for our stay. It was modern and well equipt, and Mohammed who looks after the property was incredibly helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and gave us some very useful information. I think the apartment was great value for money, only a short walk to the beach. I would definately recommend the property to a friend as it made our stay very special. Also i heard some great information about a possible roof terrace extension which would make the property even better. I would like to thank the owner for a wonderful experience at Apartment Mouette.
Very nice, clean appartment which is excellent value for money. Good size bedrooms, decent kitchen and a nice terrasse, Right next to a local shops and cafés and only a few minutes from the beach. Will definiteyl recommened to friends who are going to the region. Owner was a pleasure to deal with, extremely helpful throughout.
Great apartment, and we were very well looked after by the apartment manager. Seamless organisation throughout, from booking through arrival to departure. The area is great and very convenient for both the beach and Medina. I would highly recommend the place to anyone
