Having stayed in Marrakech two years ago and had a day trip to Essaouira,we knew we wanted to experience Morocco at a slightly slower pace!
Our pre-arranged taxi transfer with the charming Aziz was a smooth and informative journey.
Casa de Guapa lived up to its descriptions and glowing reviews. The web site pictures are completely accurate.
We were welcomed by Samira who kindly showed us our well appointed first floor apartment then around the local neighbourhood, and after a good nights sleep, we experienced one of Nadine's famous breakfasts in the "Hobbit" kitchen on the roof terrace.
Our talented,friendly, warm and caring hostess then took us on a walking tour and gave us lots of useful information..
We enjoyed staying "in the community" and using local shops.
It is easy to self cater in the spacious apartment but we also advise you to experience a delicious Tagine in house.
Karim told us about nearby Sidi Koaki down the coast so we caught a local bus and had a lovely day, a very laid back place with good,well priced food, and a gorgeous beach.
We can thoroughly recommend Casa de Guapa for any age traveller who wants to get away from big, boring hotel chain holidays.
We hope to visit again one day.

Enjoying the sunset with friends on the roof terrace can be the perfect finale to a pleasurable day.On the groundfloor of Casa Guapa is "Chez Nadine".
