“Just stunning....”
Reviewed 18 April 2018 for a stay in March 2018

Sidi Ifni is a beautiful town with a unique charm and Villa Seahouse is a superb hideaway to enjoy a relaxing time. Everything was just perfect; communication and directions and the house - wow the house....just so much space....and the pool; and the views....just miles and miles of endless beach and sea!! Town is a 5 min walk away and a small shop 2 mins but we grabbed all we needed and anything else we required the owner could direct us to....can't wait to return!

“A very special house in a very special town ”
Reviewed 3 April 2018 for a stay in July 2017

We - two families of all together eleven people - stayed here at Peter's beach house one week in july 2017.

Everything prior to our stay was handeled very smooth, with Peter being quick to answer our inquieries and also providing lots of useful information about the house and the town. He was out of town during our stay, so we didn't actually meet him in person. Instead he had managed for a french friend of him, Patrick, to meet us and act like our contact and guide. Patrick was just the perfect person for this. Easy going, good humoured and with a wealth of information about Sidi Ifni and Morocco.
We also dealt with Youssef - the mr. fix-it-all and Aicha - the maid. Youssef speak good english and Aicha speak some french and spanish. Both are very nice people.

What about the house then? It is truly a one-of-a-kind place, absolutely spectacular. The bold architecture and sense of space and natural light. The size of it: It is a huge place with plenty of space for the eleven of us. The outside terrace with lots of sitting groups sunbeds and a big pool.
And finally the setting/location. Perched on a steep hill overlokking the beach and the Atlantic ocean. You could sit out there with your morning coffee for hours and just marvel at the view.
The pool is a bit on the chilly side, and I will recommend that you pay a little bit extra to turn on the pool-heather.

Location-vice it takes about fifteen minutes to walk into town.
Just when you reach the city centre there is a small supermarket and a well-stocked bakery on the left hand. However: if all you need is bread for breakfast, there is a tiny shop at the mosque selling the staple round bread. This saves you quite a bit of walking in the morning as the mosque is only a three minute walk away.

I will of course highly recommend this place. I'd say it is very good value for money considering the unique experience you get from staying at a place like this.

Sidi Ifni is also in itself a very nice place.

The only negative is that the beach in front of the house is not that ideal for swimming. It's good for playing and football though...

Thanks for such a detailed review and I'm glad both families had such a great time. Your review will help future guests know what to expect. Lots of our guests return and I think that's because of the location - the big views are superb. Guests often say how much they enjoy the sound of the ocean as well as the quiet pace of life! So - we hope to see you again soon!

Thanks for another great review. I'm pleased you 'got' Sidi Ifni - it has an 'away from the rest of the world' feel to it. Yes, the villa has lots of space and privacy - always great views and light. Of course to get the superb views it's an exposed position with lots of salt and sun thrown at us so we keep working away at repainting and maintenance. As you say, it's very comfortable, guests are well looked after and we'll be happy to welcome you back!

person found this review helpful

In such a quiet, remote and (luckily) untouristy place like Sidi Ifni, the discovery of this house is purely amazing. The architecture, the amenities, the location (overlooking the Atlantic ocean), the pool and terrace are truly impressive. We had a wonderfull stay there.

We're happy you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it's a lucky find - a place away from the world and still with all your home comforts! It's a great space to chill with a bunch of friends. For families there are lots of activities in the area - kids love the beach and you can keep an eye on them from the terraces. Glad you enjoyed the architecture and hope you return!

“Perfect family retreat”
Reviewed 20 April 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Our extended modern family enjoyed ten wonderful days of elegant relaxation in this dreamy bolthole on the edge of friendly Sidi Ifni. The pictures relly don't give you nearly an idea of how big and spacious this property is, or how welcoming. Mornings on the roof terrace, afternoon by the pool watching the waves and boats and then evenings in the lovely sitting room nibbling local snacks and playing games. Looked after brilliantly by Peter and his team nothing is too much trouble. Some wonderful eateries walking distance, although Honda vans often made the trip home easier. The fish market is different everyday and fresh veg, fruit and meat is in abundance at the weekly market and local stores. We will return - February was warm and intend to return in the late summer. Dreaming of it already.

We certainly enjoyed having you to visit - your family made a big impact! Glad you enjoyed the villa - even with a large group there are lots of spaces around so it's always possible to find a quiet corner. Of course sometimes the sound of the sea gets rather loud - a good noise. Come back and see us soon.

“First rate - highly recommended”
Reviewed 7 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

The owner, Peter Duffin, and his team - Aicha the cleaner, Youssef the Property Manager and Massaud the driver - all did everything in their power to ensure we had a wonderful stay. They were all absolutely charming.

Sidi Ifni itself is a quiet backwater - 'quiet' also means untouristy - very different to Marrakesh which we visited when we were last in Morocco. We greatly enjoyed the contrast Ifni made to the pace of life in London and rapidly became fond of it. The locals were very pleasant and friendly, but never pushy. We (family with two boys) took the 11:00AM bus up the coast to Legzira beach one day. It eventually set off at 11:25 - Youssef explained that 'in Europe you have watches but in Sidi we have time!'

Shopping for fish, oranges (best we've ever tasted), fresh veg and bread in the town's market is great fun - the choice and quality are amazing. If you have a little French you'll find it a great help. When you don't fancy cooking or barbecuing back at the Sea House there are some restaurants of a good standard - a few of them licensed. Be sure to try the camel kebab!

We made an excursion to the huge livestock (including camels), fruit & veg market at Guelmim 'gateway to the Sahara' and another day-long safari in a 4 x 4 to a desert oasis, fort and sand dunes. Both trips are highly recommended.

Saving the best till last - it is the Sea House itself that really made the holiday. It's beautifully designed, spacious and airy. We spent a lot of time there just hanging out, playing cards, scrabble, reading, swimming in the pool - doing what you should on holiday...

It's a pleasure to recommend this place - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks for your review. You've described Sea House perfectly. Many guests spend all their time at the villa but as you point out there are lots of things to go and see if you find time to leave the pool!

“what a wonderful place”
Reviewed 14 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Myself and husband, along with daughter and her boyfriend stayed at this idyllic villa in April / May. Unfortunately we only had a week - we could have stayed for months! The villa is spectacular. It is bright, spacious, clean and extremely comfortable. The photographs do not do it justice. I doubt we will ever find another place that matches this one.

The villa is cleaned daily and the villa manager also visits daily to ensure everything is OK. He is also able to give good advice on possible visits and can arrange taxis for same. We were somewhat lazy - I think most would be when you have such a wonderful place to stay - but did visit the Moroccan equivalent of Durdle Door (Legzira) which is perhaps superior to our Dorset example as there are four arches here! We had an enjoyable walk along the quiet beach (though I guess it will be busier at the height of the season), followed by a lovely fish lunch at one of the the little restaurants right on the beach.

We didn't take advantage of having a meal cooked for us in the villa as we were happy doing almost nightly barbecues on the patio using fish, meat and vegetables from the local market just a 15 minute walk away. There is also a well stocked supermarket and patisserie which is a 10 minute walk. (Husband used the bicycle from the garage a couple of times).

The town of Sidi Ifni had a few tourists but remains unspoilt and untainted. We had a couple of lunches here - the Gran Canaria had great food with great service.

There is one or more of the villa's terraces which gets the sun at some point of the day though we found in April / May that the sun didn't appear until after midday. The pool then gives welcome relief from the heat - a bit chilly initially!

The transfer is a long one - over two hours - but worth it - and Peter's driver Bashir is extremely pleasant and accommodating enabling a jewellery shopping trip for my daughter in Tafroute (recommended) on the return journey. (Cost of transfer £45 each way).

If you want luxurious peace and relaxation in a quiet and unspoilt part of Morocco along with the feel and experience of a totally different culture, then this is the place.

I'm pleased you enjoyed the villa so much. It's a great design offering many spaces to relax in. Ifni isn't a developed resort so it's a great place for those who want to 'get away from it all'. It's quiet, safe and friendly which is what you've found. At the same time we have all 'mod cons' so you can be comfortable and with help on hand guests are also well looked after. Thanks for giving future guest an idea of what to expect.
