Beautifully renovated bright and airy two-bedroom Moroccan style apartment in the heart of the medina. Large lounge and dining-room.
Moroccan Sunset is a spacious 2nd floor self-contained apartment recently renovated to very high standards in a Moroccan style. Very light and airy. It is situated in the heart of the traffic-free UNESCO-protected medina. The apartment consists of a double bedroom, twin bedroom and large open-plan dining and lounge area.
Salah (our English speaking manager) will always be available to assist you and Fatima (our house keeper) will cook traditional Moroccan food and serve you in the apartment if requested at very reasonable rates (about £5/person!). We can also arrange taxi transfers, private guided tours of the Medina, private cookery lessons and even private yoga lessons. Salah can also advise about camel and horse riding and quadbiking.
We also have a similar 3rd floor flat (with private roof terrace) which can be combined with the 2nd floor by means of a common entrance if larger parties require it.
On the west coast of Morocco lies the Unesco World Heritage protected medina (walled town) of Essaouira. With its all-year temperate climate, traffic-free streets, beautiful beach, wonderful restaurants (both Moroccan and European) and coffee shops, it is a safe, tranquil and beautiful holiday resort for ALL the family.
It’s great for sunbathing, surfing, and water-sports, as well as camel and horse riding, quad-biking, and trips to the desert or mountains.
It is absolutely useless if you’re looking for loud night-clubs and all-night bars!
Return visit for my family. Property as before with additions (wi-fi). New restaurant opend since we last visited -Miyame - relaxed, friendly, tasty and cheap. Also Salah helped us get a Tangier made (slow cooked stew - saw it on Jamie Olivers programme). Thanks for everything Salah and Latifa. See you again - Inshallah.

We rented both the 2nd and 3rd floor flats for the Gnaoua festival. It was great as there were a lot of us and we had plenty of space and could all use the roof terrace. Received maps and info from the owner before we left and he arranged airport transfers - made life much easier (and cheaper). The festival was brill and we were in the thick of it. Essa was heaving. Thankfully we stayed on a few extra days afterwards to enjoy Essa when it was more peaceful. The flat was WOW. Breakfast in the terrace sunlounge was great as it was a bit windy some days. Thanks for a wonderful time.

Said wed return - and we did. Actually enjoyed Essaouira even more! It didnt take us any time to get into it. GREAT new reataurant opened 10 yards from the front door. MIYAME - hope I spelled it right. Highly highly recommended. Flat was great and Salah very wecoming. This could become a habit! Just whats needed to get away from it all.

Lovely flat with everything that we needed but most of all a fabulous location. Communication before we went was really helpful and whilst we didnt really make use of Salahs services it was good to know that he was there and he popped in every now and again to make sure we were ok.
We had a fantastic time and it was great to have the flat to pop back to throughout the day.

We went with the expectation to rent a car to travel around, but didnt! Just chilled out in Essaouira. Had the second floor apartment, but Salah, the manager, let us use the terrace when the top flat was vacant. The flat is in a great location in the center but nice and quiet. Only a 5 minute walk from the port and beach. Our bedroom looked directly down over the Spice Market. Great to watch life float by. Flat itself is as described, but larger than we expected. Salah, who spoke good English, arranged transfers and was always friendly and helpful when asked. Recommend the restaurants in the information book in the flat but also found some other good places. Plenty of alleyways to discover new places. Highly recommended. Thanks.

The English owner contacted us before we left and gave useful advice. Also arranged transfer to Essa. Met at Essa gates by English speaking manager who took us to apartment. Great position on quiet street in centre of medina. Gave us a map, useful info folder & mobile phone. (English owner called us to check everything ok) Apartment had that WOW factor - better than photos. Spacious living area and adequate bedrooms. Kitchenette small (electric hot plates and kettle) but adequate as usually ate out - good food and v. cheap. Lots of windows all over apartment so nice and bright. Clean. Plenty of books and games. We didnt bother with DVD or TV but did use the music centre (various CDs provided). Great views of Essa, Spice market below and hills in distance, from our bedroom window. Ocean views from the roof terrace (we were in 2nd floor without terrace, but manager gave us key to roof terrace as no one was using it from 3rd floor). Housekeeper Fatmah cooked one eveing - recommended (gave her some extra cash to wash up!). Only one complaint - we should have stayed longer. Essa is great. Will most definately return. Thanks.....
