“A memory for life”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2016

We were picked up at the airport in Marrakech not knowing what to except from our journey to Morocco since this was our first visit. We arrived at the port of Essaouira and was greeted by the owners of the dar-eveningstar John and Charles. Entering the first floor we were stunned. An amazing house of several floors. The interior was the most beautiful and well planned we have ever seen. A perfect design and every detail picked with great care making us feel welcome. Every inch was clean and filled with everything you need even comfortable robes to use after shower. The view of the sea from every floor. We travelled with two children of 14 and 11 years old and they were so happy running up and down the stairs to explore this house. The got to pick where they wanted to sleep and off course chose the top floor. That night we fell asleep listening to the ocean from an open window. The top floor with a terrass overlooking the ocean was the icing on the cake. We had an interest in seeing local craftsmanship and shopping for spices and art. John knows all the good galleries and shops and we got the best service. He was helpful all the way and recommended fantastic restaurants. The town house is perfectly located in the old town close to everything. Only a short walk from the house is the beach where the children got to swim. We are already planning a return visit.

Owner's reply: 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!! Gratefully, John, Charles and Henry

“A fabulous welcome to Morocco”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2016

We were all so excited to stay in this house in this location - and it did not disappoint. All of us, including our sons, were inspired by the house - the design, the details and the colour. It is a tranquil and beautiful place to come back to at the end of a busy day. John and Chip certainly passed on their love of Morocco and their understanding of the people and the places. They also provided practical help such as organising taxis, booking up restaurants, devising a trip to Marrakesh - all of which ensured that we got the most out of the week we had with them. We unhesitatingly would recommend Dar Evening Star for families or groups comprising all ages. Thank you so much John, Chip and Henry!

Owner's reply: Dear Dave and Sue! We were inspired by you! A truly devoted and lovely family..these days a rare find..treating each son as individuals with a voice..what a recipe for success in a family..please return to us..we will drop everything to accommodate you...thank you for your wonderful are so kind..with affection and gratitude...John, Chip and Henry

“Fantastic house, great hosts”

Reviewed 9 Feb 2016

We had a fantastic stay at Dar evening star. The property was even better than we expected with great views out over the sea. Our trip was really made by how inviting John and Charles were - from recommending and booking restaurants and shops to giving us a guided tour of Essaouira. The house is beautifully done with all the facilities we needed and a great roof terrace.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, Helen, you have a wonderful family..kind and generous and what a pleasure it was meeting you. We are so happy that you enjoyed our House on the sea, Essaouira, and meeting us! We eagerly await your return. Please visit us again! John and Charles
