Dar 91 Essaouira


Essaouira, Marrakech-Essaouira,


  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.  
  Details on 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.

  What visitors have said about Dar 91 Essaouira
Blue skies every day, cheap and fresh fruit and veg by the bucket-load, and we managed to read four books in the space of a week. Dar 91 gave us the opportunity to live amongst the locals, and we came back to England with our batteries fully charged.

The house is a great place to relax from the hustle and bustle outside and listen to the twittering birds. Thanks for making this a special place for people to experience the real Essaouira.

What can I say about your fantastic house...... it was wonderful, we loved it so much. Essaouira is both charming and vibrant, exciting and chilled. Our girls will carry wonderful memories around with them, as will we. Came home and painted my front door blue.. huzzah!

From the moment we stepped off the bus and took the short walk through the great walls into the alley way, we were taken back in time. The pace of life is slow, and the people are warm and friendly. Dar 91 is in the perfect location, close to everything, yet tucked away enough so you’re able to appreciate the sounds and silences of the Essaouira way of life.

The house is fab and quirky and was a great place to relax. It was great to fling the windows open and listen to the kids playing on the street, the horse coming home to bed every evening, the detergent man with his hooter in the morning, and the bobbin winding machines. Loved loved loved Essaouira!
