“Everything the photos portrayed and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

The property was everything the photos portrayed and more. When we arrived, we were haggled by taxi drivers when we got off our bus, but Deborah had someone waiting when we arrived. He tracked us down in the Medina near the Hotel Continental and recognized us, calling to us by name, which was a huge relief at the time. He then took us to the house, which was very clean and equipped with everything that we needed for our stay.

I wish we could have stayed longer. The house had a lovely terrace overlooking Tangiers. There was plenty of space for our four person family (and then some). The house is four stories, very unique, and very Moroccan. Everything was in working order for our stay, which was a nice change up against some of our other experiences with other vacation rentals in other countries.

We took a ferry from Algeciras to Tangier Med because the wind had shut down ferries from Tarifa, Spain directly to Tangier. The bus ride from Tangier Med to Tangier was 40 minutes and then the taxi ride to the Hotel Continental only took a few minutes. The walk from the Hotel Continental to the house is short and manageable with a little guidance.

We have had our fair share of bad experiences, but this one was very good. Deborah worked with us on the vacation rental to make the situation worked for us even despite quirky and remarkably busy schedule.

“Basic, authentic and great for a cheap break with much cultural immersion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

There is much to commend this property - it is exceptional value. Its location in the medina is excellent, with many shops and cafes nearby to buy food and provisions. You feel very much part of the kasbah and are treated as a local if you are respectful and willing to converse. Compared with other places I have stayed in Morocco, there was very little hassle from locals and lots of genuine offers - only really experienced negative attention on arrival from the Port, and in the hotel district.

Communication from the owner prior to arrival was excellent, and on arrival at the Hotel Continental and texting Abdellah, I was called back within 10 minutes. He came with the keys 20 minutes later and escorted us to the house. He quickly found more toilet roll and a light bulb (several more were missing, we later discovered) and made sure we had what we needed, and offered himself in case we had further problems. We didn't need to contact him again, but felt confident that we could and that he would manage things. It would have been nice to have an extra key; we would have been severely limited by one key if we had been a larger group. It would have been helpful to have a map of the town and medina, but we were able to find one in the new town.

It was great to have the run of the house, which is largely as described. It is clean, very functional, and modestly but cleanly furnished. It would benefit greatly from a cooker - there is currently only a two ring hob and no oven - a wider selection of kitchen implements, and some sofas or easy chairs for relaxing. Bedrooms were well appointed and we slept well. Bathrooms were clean but fittings cracked. Roof terrace is gorgeous. The tall, narrow building (and street), coupled with an open grille over the front door, meant that noise from the street was sometimes disturbing and echoed up to the bedrooms, and the neighbours were doing some very loud work on their property, but kept this to daytimes.

We enjoyed sampling the local street food, which was excellent value and very good quality, and eating in the beach cafes when we fancied something a bit more international. Top tip is to buy a drink and the Hotel Continental and use their wifi for free.

Overall we had a great time, and with a few additions and upgradings, the house will be even better. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and look forward to staying again.

“The charming place for staying in Tanngier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2011 for a stay in December 2011

We were staying at the House for one week. It is very clean and komfortably equipped, amazing traditional Moroccian house in old town of Tangiers. We were a group of 5 persons (4 adults and 1 child) and felt very comfortable and safe in the house. There were many small trditional restaurants with enjoy traditional cuisine and fresh fruits markets in old town. There are many shops and pizzerias olso in the center of Tangiers near the od town- Medina. In the evenings we sat on the roof terrace of the house, ate delicious fruits and looking romantic landscape.
Olso We had a very warm and sincere welcome from Abdellah, he took very care of us and recommended us good trips out of town.
We are very pleased with the lovely accomodation!
Thank You veru much!

“The perfect house for experiencing the magic of 1001 nights!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011 for a stay in August 2011
1
person found this review helpful

Me and my friend spent 6 lovely days in this wonderful house in the old original kasbah/ medina. It's location is perfect - in a narrow street withdrawn from the touristic main streets and just enough up the hill to have a beautiful view over the rest of the Medina and the sea. The neighbors are very friendly - we felt very welcomed even if we didn't speak any languages in common! Within short walks you reach everything you want to visit in Tangier.
Relaxing on the lovely roof terrace in the evenings and listening to the muezzins from the minarets we really felt the magic of being in a world of 1001 nights!
The house itself is kept in the traditional Moroccan style with tiles on all floors etc. and furnitured traditional and somewhat simple, so it keeps the authentic feeling, but is still comfortable enough (functional kitchen comfortable beds, 2 toilettes, tube in the bathroom etc.). A great bonus is Abdellah, the kind, young and well educated man that take care of the house for the landlady - and all your needs.

“Tangier's inspiration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

person found this review helpful

I spent a week in June 2011 in this beautiful house in the heart of Tangier. I felt safe, welcomed and inspired. During the day I visited attractions nearby including the modern style beach that is just 15 min walk from the house, and parks and restaurants with amazing Moroccan food . You can rest in a beautifully decorated modern bathroom with bath and European toilets. Evenings with candles on the terrace that has the most magnificent view over the sea and city. Really peaceful and romantic atmosphere , friendly neighbors and local shops. All supplies in kitchen for self catering. A really cheap and magical holiday. I will definitely be back there !!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Cette maison est très bien située, dans la Kasbah qui est un joli quartier de la Médina. Elle est très bien décorée et accueillante. Abdellah est adorable et est vraiment là en cas de besoin!
Attention aux personnes âgées, les marches d'escaliers sont assez hautes! (c'est ce qui fait tout le charme de la maison:))

Je recommande à 100% et j'y retournerai!

la cuisine manque d'une gazinière,
impossible de cuisiner sur un feu électrique très usagé, trop juste
il faut aimer vivre dans la Médina, dans cette rue en tout cas, un peu bruyante
