On the terrace of a merchanthouse built in 1898 in the old medina of Tangier you can rent a light and spacious suite.
A simple but very comfortable Berberbed 1.40 m, 2 sofa´s and a private bathroom in a setting full of colour and lot´s of charm.

The space

Once you enter the beautiful double doors of the house with the year 1898 carved into the cedarwood and you climb up the marble staircase towards the terrace, you will feel like in a little oasis. The terrace-suite is the cherry on the cake!! With original coloured glass windows and red tiles on the floor , wooden celing at the entrance, modern bathroom with step-in-shower and inside the room lot,s of detail and decor you will love!

Peter's pictures of his home dont to it justice! I felt like I walked into a tranquil Oasis in the middle of this crazy busy medina. Peter was an attentive host. Before my arrival he had arranged a driver from the Airport and met me in the medina to guide me to his place. He helped me with my luggage and on the next day provided me with a map of the Old Town so I could venture out confidently. He was available to answer all of my questions throughout my stay and we enjoyed some conversations to pass the time during the midday heat. No question- I would book with Peter again when in Tangier. Thanks Peter!

It is time now to leave my beautiful riad and the solitude I have needed so badly. My head feels clear and I can think again. I will miss the call to prayer. I will miss walking barefoot on the cool red tiles. I will miss the sound of the birds during the day and the cats roaming at night. I will miss the coolness of the night and the heat of the day. I will miss Peter, Jane and Mohammad. I will miss drinking hot, sweet mint tea sitting outside at the Cafe Rif when the sun is high and hot in the sky. While the tea is hot, the mint cools you.

Peter was an exceptional host. We felt welcomed the moment we arrived. He gave us good restaurant recommendations and smart advice about the city and prices (what things should actually cost). His place was beautiful- the pictures don't do it justice. The terrace is a paradise. I would highly recommend staying here! Despite a delayed arrival, Peter was a great communicator. Thank you, Peter!!

Had a wonderful stay at Peter's house during our time in Tangier. The Riad is perfectly situated inside the medina, right in the heart yet easy to find and navigate, quick few minutes walk to both the Grand & Petit Socco, Kasbah & outside of medina. Merchant House itself is full of character, topped off by Peter, who is both a knowledgeable & thoughtful host! Once again, thank you Peter for making our stay so comfortable & also for organising our departure from Tangier by car so smoothly :)

Recently returned from the beautiful home of Peter's in Tangier, where my self my husband and two children had the most wonderful holiday for five nights. Peter was the perfect host in every way and his wealth and knowledge of the area make it the perfect trip. He met us on arrival which was great and helped making it a smooth start to the holiday. (No getting lost in the Medina!) His Home was exceptional and we had the top floor to ourselves which made it very private and peaceful. Perfect location to explore the local area. Thank you Peter we'll hopefully be back soon!

I am Peter Van der Drift living in Tangier , Morocco, since 2006. Before making this major change in my life I was working as a manager/consultant in the Netherlands based in Amsterdam.
Now I split my time between those two cities but I love to travel around the world as well.
Interested in art, architecture, (interior) design, literature , movies etc etc.
As a people-person meeting new quests in the Merchanthouse from different cultures with different backgrounds is for me always truly interesting My motto is to enjoy life NOW!

Cheers! Peter
