The space

The magical house shares its magic atmosphere with guests in Essaouira!
Situated in a calm, typical part of the old medina, it’s a classic riad, decorated and maintained with attention to detail.
It is nearby Essaouira's main attractions including beach, local vegetable and fish market, shopping streets and port, only five to eight minutes walk to all places.
The house is on four floors, built around an atrium with a glass roof which lets in the light.
On ground floor, there is well equipped kitchen, living room with fire place and guest toilets. On first floor, we call it "the cozy floor», you can find two rooms for kids and parents: one large double bedroom for couple and one cute child's room full of great colors and fun furniture for your kids. The two bedrooms communicate with a typical bathroom with a bathtub, giving good privacy and space.
On the second floor, there are two bedrooms: one double room and one single room. At this floor there is also a shared bathroom for the both bedrooms.
On the third floor two comfortable double rooms are proposed. Both of them are on terraces. One has a fabulous view over the medina. There is a private sheared shower for those rooms. At this floor you can find a kitchenette which is usable to all the guests of the house, as the terraces.
The house is perfect for family, group of friends or for couples.
The sunny terrace, the quiet atmosphere and the comfort of the house make it a perfect place to enjoy Essaouira. Ourselves appreciate a lot local foods, varying from fresh fish arriving every day, to fruits, vegetables and meat coming from nearby countryside. We will be very happy to show you where to get all those good things for your meals to prepare at the house or have it cooked in a local café.
The house is perfectly secure. You will be free to take your room key and the main door key with you just like being at home.
Free Internet wireless connection in your rooms and in the entire house is always at your disposal. Cleaning cloth, babysitting or child care is possible, breakfast and other meals can be provided too: those services are available on request with a small additional cost. Extra beds (single bed, baby bed) are available on request for free.
Parking with guardians (20 DH per day) is only 3 minutes walk from the house nearby the small gate of Bab Marrakech.
We are happy to guide and assist you during your stay. We speak arabic, french and english.
We are looking forward to welcome you in our house of sun, flowers, birdsong and quiet atmosphere!

Our experience at the Hiya Maison could not be better. The lovely couple have welcomed us at the bus station right after we have arrived. And the house was only a few minutes walk away from the bus station. It's well located in a quiet sector of the medina and it's easy to find. …

We had some works in the room, we couldn't finish it at time, that's why we had to cancel the booking.

This home is our dream home. Amazing decor and beautiful ambience. Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy it because within 10 minutes of arriving, we discovered a bunch of bed bugs in both our room and our friends room. They were very quick to kindly give us rooms in a neighbo…

Response from Drissi Family:
we found the bed bugs only in one room, on the top of the house, the second room on the terrace was clean from bedbugs because all the week until your arrival time we had guests and no one have found bedbugs. so you should not mentionne the other room too, because we understand that you booked two rooms as you were 4 friends and you will not be happy if we remove two people to an other place, and let you in the house with other foreigner people. You did the check in around midnight, and you didn't respect the other guests, you did a lot of noise, the other guests were very upset from your behavior like you found a monster in the room. and you woke up all the house also the little baby on the first floor. We had once the bedbugs, we treated them very good and we starded hoting again, no one has claimed before, maybe you bring them with you from your desert trip.

Super Not Hosts. Never replied to my three emails before arriving. No one answered the door even though the maid was home. I had to wait an hour to get in after a long tiring trip and that was after I got two of their neighbors to call the hosts. They are nice people but far too …

I apologize for the first two emails that I forgot to answer on the spot, and it never happened to me to answer my guests. the 3rd email I saw it, and when you called me right after, I explained everything to the Moroccan gentleman who told me about you when you were still in Marrakech. I told the gentleman to tell us your arrival time because we are not in the Riad all the time, and we work full time. We have a maid who helps us to welcome our guests the time we arrive to explain everything and answer your questions. We were very kind to you, I spent the whole afternoon with you, to help you to make the bus and train reservations, you were offered tea with lots of Moroccan pastries, in addition you were offered 2 vouchers of 15% on the best restaurants of essaouira. just to thank for your understanding.

My partner and I had the best time because of Naima and Hamid. Naima gave us the perfect recommendations and her warmth and hospitality made us very much at home immediately. Do visit her shop and enjoy a coffee or tea on the roof! We spent hours up there just watching the sky go…
