One-Off Feature
Housed in a building that was originally an 18th century police watchtower, Wahed is a clean, quirky and comfortable serviced apartment in the walled old town of Essaouira. Come and immerse yourself in an authentic, vibrant and traditional Moroccan neighbourhood.
General Info
Light, airy and eclectically furnished, Wahed is a three-storey townhouse-style apartment where you can relax in style and privacy. From its imposing French windows, you can watch daily life unfold – children playing on the street, women drawing water from the public fountain, craftsmen heading back and forth to their tiny workshops, and horses coming home to their stables at night. Essaouira is Morocco’s most welcoming and laid back seaside resort and this is the perfect place from which to explore it.
The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation
Located in Chbanat, a sleepy residential district which retains an authentic, local charm, the house is tucked away from the tourist trail but is still just 5 minutes from the souks and 10-15 minutes from the beach, harbour, bars and restaurants. Essaouira’s beautiful medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the lovely seaside is yours to explore. Take a stroll along the sweeping sandy beach, buy fresh fish, spices and fruit in the bustling souks, go surfing or watch the sun set over the ramparts. This is an enchanting place.

They send all guests their insider guide to Essaouira, and the helpful staff are on hand to make sure you have a great stay. In 2011 they set up Project 91, a UK-registered charity which aims to help young people in Essaouira improve their education and job prospects – see the website for more details.
