Casa Guapa de Tamuziga
Ranked #5 of 180 Essaouira B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Oh oh oh, I wish I could take two weeks of each Spring and spent them - not only in fantastic Essaouira - but living in Casa Guapa. I want to try all three flats...
All is either built by hand or chosen with great love, and full of atmosphere and hospitality; the goal is to give you a super-stay in Essaouira. The hostess Nadine and her employee Samira are truly generous spirits, and full of useful information, willingly helping you when you ask, also showing you around in the neighbourhood of Azlef, best tips regarding the Beach, weather, the medina, etc. The breakfast served everyday is beyond description simply the best I ever tried in my whole life. Now, did I mention the exquisite breakfast?
Casa Guapa is one of those Unique Places where you can either be just a visitor, enjoying the site, the town, the facilities and so forth, enjoying your stay - or perhaps you travel even further and make friends with the team behind the Guesthouse. As they truly love what they do, you certainly will have a refreshing home away from home. I have already recommended this place to ten friends - "Morocco? Casa Guapa! Ah, and Essaouira is really nice too..."

This house in it's entirety deserves it's name "casa guapa". Our appartment (nr 2) is specious and has pretty furniture. The staff is also very nice and are ready to help at any time.
It is very beautiful decorated but it's just not very comfortable: the beds are very small and way to hard, the couch is uncomfortable and it lacks a dining table so you have to eat at the kitchen counter on very hard stools and only when you are with just the two, there is no space for four at the counter. You also get one kitchentowel and bathtowel which is to little for a week. I bet if you ask, the staff will provide more, but it's odd you are not provided with more up front.
What we were the most disappointed about was that there is no private terrace or balcony you can sit on, the two small balcony's are not suited for that. The terrace on the roof is beautiful and comfortable but shared with the other guests. Which is no problem of course, but we thought at least one of the two balcony's in the apt was suited for sitting on and enjoying a cup of coffee.
The location is allright, close to the beach and with a cheap cab you are at the medina in a few minutes. You can also park your car free in front of the house.
All in all this is a great place to stay if you are staying a few days, for a longer stay like us, it's not recommended, the price is also to high for what you get, especially for Moroccan standards.

We were 10 days in Essaouira. After our arrival in Casaguapa/Essaouira we were very impressed by the amazing and beautiful apartments. The whole house is beautifully furnished with attention to the detail. The apartments are large and the roof terrace invites you to spend the hole day. We all, even the children, felt very comfortable. The breakfast is also delicious. After a tour in the medina, at the beach or a trip on a camel, we always came back very happy in our apartment. We thank Nadine once again for their warm hospitality and come definetly again soon.

Room Tip: Apartment on the terrace is great.

Casa Guapa is an amazing place in beautiful Essaouira. Our apartment was cozy and large with lovely details like rose patels on the sink. The house is in walking distance to the great beach (with surfers, horses and camels). Nadine is a warmhearted and easygoing person, alsways eager to help her guests in any matter. She showed us around the area, helped us to rent a car and served us the best couscous ever. Thank you so much, we had a great time and will definitely come back!

After 4 days in Marrakech we took the bus to Essaouira and we stayed at Casa Guapa. We loved the laid back vibe of the beach town and we also loved the food! Nadine was there to welcome us when we arrived. She walked us around the neighborhood and she showed us a great bakery (Patachou), where to buy water etc. We had a lovely apartment in Casa Guapa with a full kitchen. We also indulged in Nadine's breakfast which was amazing plus you get to enjoy it on the sunny rooftop. We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Guapa! Note - if you are coming from Marrakech take the CTM bus at it drops you less than 5 minutes walk away from Casa Guapa.

We stayed for 3 nights in Casa Guapa with our family of 6. We were surprised to see so much creativity and to meet such nice people. Samira was very helpful and showed us were to go. The beach is close enough and you can walk or take a taxi to the Medina. Nadine is a helpful and interested host. We went to her secret restaurant on the beach with all the animals. You will feel at home in this Casa and we will tell all our friends about it. Hope to come back soon. And don't miss the breakfast! It is a surprise every morning. Marijke, the Netherlands

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Casa Guapa is a very charming spot and earns its reputation as the"beautiful house".Indeed it is a very adorable and exceptionally designed house.Casa Guapa attracts attention in the neighbourhood of Tamuziga (this is the very ancient name of Essaouira) and immediately you will discover our differentness to other guesthouses in the old Medina. The individual care about our guests in a familiar ambience is most important to us and at the same time the guests have their own full privacy and space. You can cater yourselves or be pampered by our famous breakfast and enjoy our homemade moroccan dishes at home.Two individual decorated apartments and one charming studio on the beautiful roof terrace provide convenience at a different level of prices and make Casa Guapa an excellent place to meet interesting people in a relaxed atmosphere. Enjoying the sunset with friends on the roof terrace can be the perfect finale to a pleasurable day.On the groundfloor of Casa Guapa is "Chez Nadine". Her space of living and creativity with a small studio is private, although the sympatic mistress is happy to open her doors for occasionally sponteanous creative, social and culinary activities.Some of the creations which have been realized in the studio, are as well part of the furnishing on the upper floors of Casa Guapa.If you are looking for a delicious dinner on the terrace or a relaxing massage, a cleaning lady or a baby-sitter, more knowledge about craft work and special insider tips, or you want to learn how to cook moroccan food – the charming mistress Nadine and her team will be happy to be at your disposal.If you wish to be pampered with our famous breakfast we offer you this delicious and varied experience as an extra.Communication is easy in Casa Guapa because we speak French, English, German, Spanish and Arabic.Every guest has free access to the sunny roof terrace, where he can find a comfortable spot to relax.We provide free wifi internet connection in the whole house.If you need a taxi from the airport of Essaouira, Marrakech or Agadir, we can organise your personal driver to pick you up there and bring you straight to Casa Guapa.Guests travelling by car can park easily and free of charge in front of the house.Casa Guapa is located in the quarter of "Azlef" opposite of Hammam Ghita (typical arabic bath, spoken: Rita), in the middle of the center of New Essaouira.Different to the turbulent and busy life of the acient Medina you will feel here straight away being part of the moroccan neighborhood and at the same time it is only a 15 minutes’ walk by foot to the Medina, its impressive harbour and the main tourist attractions of the city, 8 minutes to the beach and 2 to the forest.Small taxis are also circulating for 50 cents per ride everywhere in town. The new but not touristy Hammam and shopping facilities like supermarkets, bakeries, laundries and cafés are conveniently situated just around the house. ... more   less
