Description from owner

Description

This jewel of a private home, all to yourselves, is hidden on a narrow, quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the ancient Moorish city of Marrakech. (Derb Alililj #29, Kaat Benahid, Marrakech, Medina) It is a world far removed, though close to the modern part of town, just a short flight from anywhere in Europe and closer to New York than is London. From our residential neighborhood it's but a short walk to all of the craft markets (souks), open-air vegetable vendors, several important historic landmarks and one of the finest gourmet restaurants is around the corner. The UN World Heritage Site, the Jmaa el Fna square, always jumping with amazing entertainers and restaurants, is a 15 minute stroll. Though cars are not allowed into the maze of small streets, with everything so convenient a car is unnecessary, and for occassional trips to other parts of town inexpensive taxis are close by.

The house, 1700sq ft (160sq meters) on two floors, has been remodeled in the 'Beldi'

This jewel of a private home, all to yourselves, is hidden on a narrow, quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the ancient Moorish city of Marrakech. (Derb Alililj #29, Kaat Benahid, Marrakech, Medina) It is a world far removed, though close to the modern part of town, just a short flight from anywhere in Europe and closer to New York than is London. From our residential neighborhood it's but a short walk to all of the craft markets (souks), open-air vegetable vendors, several important historic landmarks and one of the finest gourmet restaurants is around the corner. The UN World Heritage Site, the Jmaa el Fna square, always jumping with amazing entertainers and restaurants, is a 15 minute stroll. Though cars are not allowed into the maze of small streets, with everything so convenient a car is unnecessary, and for occassional trips to other parts of town inexpensive taxis are close by.

The house, 1700sq ft (160sq meters) on two floors, has been remodeled in the 'Beldi' style (traditional, rustic techniques), but with many modern comforts added. From the street, the carved doorway opens into a welcoming entryway leading into the terra cota tiled courtyard open to the sky. Surrounding the courtyard, accented by a lovely wall fountain, are the doors and grill-work covered windows of the living room, office, kitchen and 1/2 bath. The living room, with hand loomed Berber carpets has two seating areas. To the right is a classic Moroccan salon with upholstered, carved banquets framed by an antique velvet tent-wall hanging. On the left comfortable leather chairs and hassocks face the fireplace. The office has a desk, fax/phone and a cozy banquet seating area with handwoven Atlas Mountain pillows and rug. The kitchen is complete with modern appliances and granite counter top. The bathroom is accented by a copper sink and mirror with green marble counter top.

The second floor has three inviting bedrooms, a laundry room with washer and dryer and a charming full bath, all arranged around the courtyard with carved balustrades bordering the connecting balconies. Each room has a double bed, seating area and wrought iron grill work windows with shutters.

The stairway continues up to the roof terrace that provides a spectacular view over the Old City's rooftops to the High Atlas Mountains beyond. A ramada and canopy create shaded areas with tiled table and chairs, and a staircase leads to a small observation deck for a 360 view. In a corner of this walled terrace is a private shower, and a grill work balustrade surrounds the central courtyard opening.
As much or as little household help as required is available. Arrangements can be made for a cook, housekeeper, guide/translator (French and Arabic are most useful but many people also speak English). WiFi and satellite TV are on-site. Our local English-speaking agent is available for orientation and assistance. The owner, fluent in Moroccan Arabic dialect, can be reached at any time by phone or email.

Marrakech is in south-central Morocco about 150 miles from Casablanca and 100 miles from the Atlantic seaport and beach town of Essaouira. Upon inquiry we can provide suggested reading and references about this truly fascinating country and its culture.

“I would stay here again & again!”

Reviewed 9 Apr 2015

I highly recommend this riad & would stay here again & again! The photos do not do it justice. I was tempted to book another fancier-looking riad, but was sold on this one's reviews about excellent staff & service, and the ease & safety of paying online through homeaway. Maria & Fatima prepared the best meal we ate during our stay, and even took us to the neighborhood hamman & wholesale shops. Moulay checked in with us daily to make sure we were safe & happy. The beds were comfy & we appreciated the cell phone that they loaned us. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was lovely with views of the snow capped mountains. Le Fondouk was an excellent restaurant for dinner (get the lamb) & drinks just around the corner. The location is great - in a quiet neighborhood within the medina, but an easy & quick walk to Fna square (through the souks so you can shop along the way!). Moulay was not available to take us on excursions, but put us in touch with Idir Anamas (a young & modern Berber guide), who took us on a once-in-a-lifetime 3d/2n trip to the Sahara, & day trip to Essaouria. Please stay at this riad! You will not regret it.

So glad you had fun with our staff! They are very open to spending time with guests or leaving them to enjoy the home on their own - whatever guests prefer. We love the location too, since it's a relatively quiet neighborhood, but convenient to most everything you want to do in Marrakech. You are so welcome to stay again and again! Sinde and Joel Rubiner
