Dear Mina,Magnus,Natalie and Melvyn,
Thank you so much for your wonderful review but most of all for staying with us at Dar Evening Star..You are our first Swedish family and it was so much fun sharing Moroccan art with you and walking the narrow lanes of our old medinas.Your appreciation and taste for Moroccan art and galleries was very exciting for me. Your respect and kind words about Dar Evening Star really made us happy..The unparalelled sea views and decor are a labour of love and your appreciation of all that we put into the house makes it all worth it for us!
Please return to us soon and stay longer this time!!
