Beautiful house perfect for two or three visitors, good for four or should you decide for more. The house is located on a quiet street in the heart of the medina, offering peace and tranqulity.

The location is great to enjoy an authentic feel of this wonderful town so rich in history, culture and music amongst other things.
The decoration of the house is simple, both modern and respectful toward the traditional architecture of Essaouira.
On the mezzanine floor, there is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom and a separate toilet. On the first floor there is a single room with a handcrafted stone washbasin. There is also another double bedroom with en-suite bathroom identical to the one on the mezzanine and a separate lavatory. The kitchen is allocated on the second floor.

Beautiful, funky cool spot in the medina. Close enough to food but far enough to stay away from most of the tourist crowd. Awesome decor, and a lovely rooftop lounge. Even had a delicious homemade tajine ready on arrival. Would highly recommend!

Loved the roof terrace and tagine on arrival... this place really felt like an authentic Morrocan home! We felt really looked after by Mohammed and Krassy. I couldn't recommend this place enough for a group of friends or family staying in magical Essaouira.

Nice people, very patient. It's near the entrance. Quite spacious. We met two friends from Germany. They are so kind and showed us the way. We slept very well. Recommend this place.

Krassy's place was excellent! Mohammed and Saida were gracious hosts, the homemade tagine on the first day was delicious, and Krassy even gave us some excellent advice on buying a carpet. The house is interesting and fun to climb around and everything has been thought of -- even rose petals in the towels! Highly recommended.
