We are a little young family including Alena and Mohamed; creative parents of our little cheerful son and a crazy cat. Our DIY colorful cozy home, situated in a very old traditional house in Medina, is available to anybody whose aim is to deepen the chilled feel of Essaouira and finding peace of mind in this busy time. You have your completely private space including double-bed room, living room, small kitchen, bathroom and a big patio-like hall.

The space
Although completely private with a private entrance, Airbnb apartment is a part of our home. Expect then homey atmosphere with a lot of personal touches.

Although being right in the middle of Medina, you hardly hear different sound inside except of seagull's laughs and occassional cat's fights. Peaceful silence of the living room together with candles lit and fire flaming in the fireplace create special atmosphere where you feel like being completely cut from the outisde world, which is perfect for travelers who want to relax, unwind and enjoy chill vibes. DIY decorations and colorful walls and paintings add a bit creative aspect to the whole space.

Our little multilingual library is fully available to you as well as maps and brochures with tips about Essaouira.


NOTE: this is an old traditional architecture of Medina - windows in the middle of the patio and window-less rooms with entrance to this patio. If you expect super bright space with windows in every room, then look somewhere else.

We are a French/Tanzanian musician and a Czech visual artists who ended up in beautiful artistic Essaouira. Beside art and traveling we really enjoy hosting people, spending time with our guests, cooking for them and giving them the best recommendations about everything interesting they could experience here. We both know Morocco well so we could give you even a deeper insight into Moroccan culture, habits and differences seen by European eyes.

During your stay

We were used to live in other part of the house just a floor above but at the moment we rent that space as well. If you wish so, there is plenty of chances to interact with and befriend those living there or you don't need to interact at all. We are available anytime on phone and few times a week in Essaouira. If you are interested, Mohamed can share a local view on his country and Alena can tell you about experiencing Morocco from a point of view of a foreigner.
