This is a wonderful house in the heart of the Medina. You will walk to everything, and then come back to your terrace in the evening and enjoy the sea view, a glass of wine and the breeze! Debbie is wonderful to deal with, and we all just loved Abdellah who is in charge in Tangiers. Would go back in a heart beat...
This house offers an authentic experience of life in a Kasbah, right in the heart of things. You can get lost in the very narrow streets but there is always help from locals and I did get a street map from the tourist office on the harbour front. The roof terrace is amazing with panoramic views and plenty of seating. Abdellah, who looks after the house is a star and offers way beyond what is necessary. Be aware that the stairs really are steep and numerous but this does add to the authenicity of your experience.
The house is well located, is clean, comfortable and the neighbrough is tipical moroccan, where you can meet locals and turist also.
The views of the terrace are wonderfull, where you can have your dinner or just relax.
I highly recomend this apartment to those who are looking for a truly moroccan expirience in the beautiful center of the kasbha.
If you want a true Moroccan experience this quirky house is exactly that! All your neighbours are locals and you will have a pretty unique experience! The view from the roof terrace after a morning sightseeing is really brilliant! and its was lovely to enjoy a glass of wine there in the evenings amidst the twinkling lights of the old town. I would certainly recommend this house to all my fit friends (stairs are steep!) who are looking for an authentic Moroccan experience! We had lovely breakfasts in the Moroccan Club sitting under a lovely big tree and our best dinner has got to be the fish platter for MAD 50 at the port! We would also recommend going from here to the Blue Medina town of Chefchouen and this Abdellah organised for MAD 500. Thank you Debbie!
We stayed in the house for about 2 weeks and we had a great time there. This accommodation is perfect if you want to visit the Country with it's culture and the lovely People living there.
The house is located in the middle of the medina of Tanger. Around you there are only moroccan families. We didn't see any other Tourist in this area during our stay. If you plan your first visit to marroc you learn some things about the People and the culture. Especially if you grow up in western europe. If don't do that (and we saw some Tourist in morocco which were not prepared ;-)) the Country can be very irritating and exhausting. And if your neighbors are all moroccan People you can't rescue yourself in a Hotel with a wall around it ;-) ... If you are prepared and if you are open minded you will have a unforgettable Holiday in the great Country - and this accommodation is the perfect place to stay.
I will not say much about the house - it's as described. You have everything you need - even if you stay there for month. The terrace is amazing! You should have no disability because there are 4 (with terrace 5) floors. You have to go up and down many stairs each day.
The best thing of the house and the most important one for our perfect holiday was Abdellah. He showed us so many things that are usually hidden for Tourists. He was our guide, showed us the City, told us many very interesting things and invited us to his Family.

This 4 story house in the historic medina, close to the kasbah in a friendly neighborhood has a fantastic roof terrace with a
panoramic view of Tangier from the port to the beach. The house is organized vertically as are many of the houses in the area. The rooms are adequate and comfortable----room for 6 people--- with 2 bathrooms. The kitchen is functional and all the appliances work. The sitting area is small but ok.
The administration is very responsive to requests and seems committed to making this apartment work for guests.
The main challange of this apartment is the stairs, which are quite high by American standards, so I would not recommend this place for people with knee, hip or cardiac issues.
The two best things about this apartment are its' location in the medina and its' roof terrace. We lived there for the month of February 2014 and spent lots of time on the terrace.
I would highly recommend the Artist's Residence.
I booked this accommodation last minute when the property I had originally booked withdrew 2-days before I was due to arrive. That said the owner of this property, Deborah, was most efficient in her dealings and very reasonable with the rates she charged for this 3 bedroom property. Similarly, her contact in Tangier, the ever smiling Abdellah, was extremely helpful and courteous on arrival and our departure for the handover of keys and was only a call away if we needed him. In 2013 I have visited Tangier 3 times. Each time I have stayed at a different place. This time we stayed in what can be truly described as an authentic and rustic Moroccan home. If you want the real deal with a hint of quirkiness and eccentricity then this is a fun place to set base and explore the Medina and truly appreciate how the locals live. A great place for families too. Albeit tucked away down a side street, the locals are very helpful so much so that one evening when I had taken a wrong turn and asked for directions the young lad who guided me back, Mohammad, turned out to be our neighbour who lived directly opposite. My only genuine feedback would be to ask that an extra couch be offered in the living room, even though a tad tight for space with a dining table and chairs, to provide seating space when unwinding in the evening as one 3-seater was not enough for 4 of us. Thank you Deborah. Wishing you well!!
