Villa overview - owner's description

Luxury seafront villa with heated pool south of Agadir

'Seahouse' sits on a cliff with views for 50km along the coast. The architect has designed a huge triple-height living space, playing with light and water. There is an intriguing open staircase, a bridge spanning the central area and a hidden minstrels' gallery. Outside we have a heated pool (16m) and a sundeck terrace. Loads of space for 10 guests and a reduced price for under 6 guests!

The furnishings are luxurious and the villa very well equipped. There is a huge net suspended over the salon, perfect for lounging - it feels just like being at sea! All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms + access to private balconies. Something rare - our terraces are not overlooked so you have complete privacy when swimming and sunbathing. Visitors always have sole use of the villa. All together... it's another world.

The main suite (King-sized bed) is 65m2 with a large balcony plus kitchenette.
Our twin-bedded room has direct access to the pool.
A double-bedded room opens on the huge upper terrace with amazing views.
A 4-bedroomed rental offers the owner’s suite - 40 m2, Queen Bed and private balcony.

The villa is just 10 minutes walk to the centre of Sidi Ifni - a small, safe and friendly Berber town where you have daily fresh food and fish markets as well as shops, restaurants and bars. It is very safe and peaceful; the Rough Guide calls it "the art-deco gem of the Sahara."

We work to make sure you enjoy your vacation - our driver will meet you at Agadir airport for the 2-hour drive south. Aicha, our maid, comes daily and we also have a chef who will come in to prepare an evening meal (extra charges apply.) This all makes it the perfect place to unwind from a busy life - the sound of the ocean is the main agenda!

Myself and husband, along with daughter and her boyfriend stayed at this idyllic villa in April / May. Unfortunately we only had a week - we could have stayed for months! The villa is spectacular. It is bright, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The photographs do not do it justice. I doubt we will ever find another place that matches this one. The villa is cleaned daily and the villa manager also visits daily to ensure everything is OK. He is also able to give good advice on possible visits and can arrange taxis for same. We were somewhat lazy - I think most would be when you have such a wonderful place to stay - but did visit the Moroccan equivalent of Durdle Door (Legzira) which is perhaps superior to our Dorset example as there are four arches here! We had an enjoyable walk along the quiet beach (though I guess it will be busier at the height of the season), followed by a lovely fish lunch at one of the the little restaurants right on the beach. We didn't take advantage of having a meal cooked for us in the villa as we were happy doing almost nightly barbecues on the patio using fish, meat and vegetables from the local market just a 15 minute walk away. There is also a well stocked supermarket and patisserie which is a 10 minute walk. (Husband used the bicycle from the garage a couple of times). The town of Sidi Ifni had a few tourists but remains unspoilt and untainted. We had a couple of lunches here - the Gran Canaria had great food with great service. There is one or more of the villa's terraces which gets the sun at some point of the day though we found in April / May that the sun didn't appear until after midday. The pool then gives welcome relief from the heat - a bit chilly initially! The transfer is a long one - over two hours - but worth it - and Peter's driver Bashir is extremely pleasant and accommodating enabling a jewellery shopping trip for my daughter in Tafroute (recommended) on the return journey. (Cost of transfer £45 each way). If you want luxurious peace and relaxation in a quiet and unspoilt part of Morocco along with the feel and experience of a totally different culture, then this is the place.

A truly amazing property, set in a wonderful location overlooking the sea! The space inside the property was phenomenal, with sea views from nearly every window! My husband and I occupied the Master Suite, with our teenage daughter taking the second suite. Both rooms were extremely spacious and each had their own terrace. Each night we went to sleep listening to the sound of the sea and awoke to it every morning! The pool was lovely - with a constant depth enabling one to stand as well as swim, and although it felt cold initially, once in it was a delight! We swam every day. The temperatures were in the mid 20's I'd say, and due to the constant breeze from the sea it never felt unbearably hot. Most times the sun didn't really make an appearance through the cloud until around lunch time but even so it was still pleasantly warm. The kitchen was well stocked with crockery/cutlery and had some basic spices, oils and other cupboard items too. There was even a dishwasher! There were books galore, dvd's, board games, a tv, a dvd player and a stereo system with Ipod docking station so no excuse for being board if the pool and beach wasn't enticing enough! Peter was very helpful and communicated fully with us before our trip, giving us plenty of information and tips to prepare us for our stay, and he provided further information once at the Villa. We were even given a phone number for the House Manager who was on call 24/7 should we need anything - who was very helpful throughout our stay and arranged several restaurant reservations for us, as well as arranging for a meal to be cooked at the villa (which I would recommend to anyone). We would definitely advise a trip to neighbouring Legzira (about 8km) to see the arches and visit one of the restaurants on the beach and if you do go don't forget to check out the little gift shop too as we bought some wonderful souveniers from here at very reasonable prices! The fish market in Ifni is a great place to grab some fresh fish to take back to the villa and BBQ, and the souk on the Sunday in the old airfield is fantastic for fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and spices as well as jewelery, fabrics and other stalls which are not too dissimilar to the typical UK car boot sales!! The supermarket was pretty good for basic supplies such as milk, cheese, eggs, soft drinks, juices, crisps, chocolate, toileteries etc. and the boulangerie next door sold fresh bread and cakes (although don't be shocked to see masses of wasps in the place, like we first were!!). You can also pick up fresh bread daily from numerous stalls on the sides of the road. Some great wine can be purchased from the bar at the Belle Vue Hotel and if you eat at the Belle Vue you can also order wine with your meal - unlike a lot of the other restaurants where they do not serve alcohol. So, would we return to Sidi Ifni? Only if we could stay again at Dar Bhar!!

we went for the second time with a group of friends to this amazing house, All used to travel a lot, but this place is a place to come back over and over.. Perfectly located view and sound of sea.. nice staff, privacy for each room but also spacious living room. The city is quiet and friendly.. foof and shopping is cheap. It is really a place to relax.. if you need a break from your busy life

Amazing house and welcoming town Peter, the owner, first imagined, then created, this dream house overlooking the beaches of Sidi Ifni - and we were delighted to have a chance to inhabit it for a week. It is rare that you can occupy a work of art, which this house most certainly is, while also being a haven. We left it only as the mood moved us, sampling the understated charms of Sidi Ifni with its friendly, laid-back inhabitants. Sidi Ifni is a welcoming fishing town with a colourful evening market and relaxed places to eat. We really enjoyed the slower pace and welcoming locals. The beach house, located 10 mins walk from the centre of town is stunning. It is spacious and grand, yet very comfortable and cosy. It is the perfect place to just relax and un-wind. We had plans to visit the local area but ended up chilling out in the house and pool most of the time. A five mins walk down to a long beach allows morning runs and stunning views. You will be well looked after by its owner.

This was the 'Piece de resistance' of our best holiday so far, which started and ended in Marrakech. I cannot praise this quiet Irishman enough he was brilliant and I feel very honoured to say I have stayed in his wonderful home. Thank you Peter! He introduced us to his local friends and gave us 'The grand tour' too, stopping for drinks at the local cafe in Sidi Ifni and talking to his friends in the local shops especially a very friendly helpful guy called Noureddine Id Bouja who's family own Superette Sidi Ifni where we bought our supplies. (We have been friends ever since our visit and talk regularly on Facebook. ha ha!) Our time in Sidi Ifni was perfected by the fact that absolutely everything was arranged for us, cook, chauffeur, travel guide and all the help and support we needed without interference. Thanks again to Peter.

In Sidi Ifni, this villa is pretty much one of a kind. Most rentals will be in older properties in town (and many of them are fine too) or a modern apartment, but this is a fantastically modern, boldly designed villa, perched right at the top of a cliff, overlooking the sea and with its own pool. Towering ceilings inside make for a really immense living space. The trade-off is that it is a little way out of the town centre - although still perfectly walkable. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time here - especially as 21C and sunny made a pleasant change from January in the UK!
