Sue was a outstanding host and the stuff was verry friendly. Great Riad with a nice area around an great tips from Sue. She prepared an excellent map with places to visit. She arranged a traditional haman for us as well. But the water pressure in the appartment is verry low.

Lovely, clean, well run Riad with wonderful staff. We had the apartment on the top floor and spent 11 nights here in late June. Centrally located within the Medina ... plenty of restaurants within a short walking distance. Thanks Sue ... you're a great host!

The Riad itself was well-decorated and had nice staff. However the beds and the general environment was damp and dingy. The wifi does not work except the first floor. On the last day before we left, the owner accused us of leaving a few dots of henna stains on some fabric and charged us 225 dirhams, which was in some...

WOW! Suffice to say that you were the FIRST occupants, as you well knew, in the beautifully and freshly decorated and re-furnished, bedroom number 2! I was distressed beyond belief, as you noticed, and even a little tearful! By the way, do try staying in ANY establishment, and permanently stain and disrespect their belongings, and you may find the response...

My husband and I spent two nights in Apartment 5 and I cannot recommend it enough. The apartment gives you a whole floor to yourself including a living room, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and your own private terrace overlooking the main street below. The rooms are lovely and bright with plenty of windows overlooking the perfect blue Essaouira sky. The terrace...

Beautiful and peaceful riad with an excellent location in the medina of Essaouira. We discover this place thanks to some surfer friends who recommend it to us. Our stay was better than expected. Susanne and the friendly staff make us feel like home. The best part is the breakfast in the sunny roof terrace! I will certainly come back :)

My husband and i spent 5 nights here with our 6month old baby. It was a perfect home away from home! Our room was spacious and clean, great for the baby with a nice wooden cot and a bath, not often provided. Across the hall we were also given use of a kitchen area to prepare food for the baby....
