Description - Bed and breakfast

Dar 91 is a private and self-contained house with its own roof terraces, in the picturesque, walled old town of Essaouira.
Tucked away in a district of the medina relatively untouched by tourism, the house is a ‘home from home’, which we let out as a whole, rather than ‘by the room’.

Here you can sit back and watch everyday Moroccan life unfold: children playing and collecting water from the communal well; women scurrying back and forth from the public oven; men spinning yarn, chatting on street corners or heading back from a fishing expedition.

Overhead the seagulls cry and in the distance the slow march of time is captured by the muezzin’s 'calls to prayer'...

Restored by local craftsmen, the 19th century house now features beautiful, reclaimed Moroccan doors, floor tiles and furniture, along with an eclectic mix of local and European fixtures, soft furnishings and accessories.

Unlike many Moroccan properties let out to tourists, Dar 91 does not feature a central courtyard - which can be a big advantage if you value your privacy, as you won't be sharing the house or roof terraces with other guests.
Dar 91 is light, airy and comfortable. It occupies the front half of what was once a police watchtower. The decor fuses old and new Moroccan and European styles, but without being slavish to any particular ‘look’ or period.

Room amenities

The main bedroom and its bathroom are on the first floor; the living room, kitchen and dining area occupy the second; and a further bedroom and bathroom make up the third floor – which also has a small terrace. From here, wooden stairs lead up to a large terrace with uninterrupted views across the medina and to the sea.

Dar 91 sleeps four people comfortably, sharing two double rooms. One of these rooms also has a single bed (1. 55m long) suitable for older children.

We do not rent ‘by the room’, so you’ll be booking the whole place to yourselves.

Neighborhood

Dar 91 is situated in the Chbanat district, near the Bab Doukkala - a part of town famous for its textile workshops, where weavers spin their yarn and produce beautiful cloth on hand looms, set back from the street in tiny workshops.

Bakeries, grocery shops and barrows laden with seasonal fruit are on your doorstep. Essaouira’s main souks are less than five minutes away; cafes, restaurants, the beach and harbour are within an easy stroll.

Booking and cancellation policy

Unless otherwise specified, booking payments are non-refundable.

To confirm your booking we ask for half the price of your stay as a deposit upfront. If it is paid more than three months in advance, it is fully refundable until three months before your stay. Thereafter and until one month before your stay, we will refund the money if we are able to re-let the house for the period in question (or a relevant proportion if we can only let it for part of the period). This same approach applies to deposits paid between one and three months before your stay. One month before your stay the deposit becomes non-refundable and the balance is due. If the balance is not paid by the due date we will keep your deposit and cancel your booking. If you book less than one month before your stay, the full balance is due immediately. Bookings are NOT confirmed until the deposit (or in the case of bookings made less than one month before your stay, the full balance) is received.

How to get there

Dar 91 is less than five minutes away from the Bab Doukkala (Essaouira’s Northern Gate). It is at 91, Rue Chbanat - a long-ish road that runs along one length of the town’s outer wall.
If you arrive by a taxi booked through us, the driver will call Naima half an hour before arriving in Essaouira, so you needn’t bother. Ask the driver to stop at Bab Doukkala. Walk through the big gate, take an immediate left and then follow this road as it bends to the right – this is Rue Chbanat; Dar 91 is the tall, whitewashed house with four French windows on your left - where the road is at its widest, just before the fountain (on your right).

If you’re arriving on the Supratours bus, this will drop you nearer the Bab Marrakech but do have a cart-man take your luggage and guide you there. Just ask for Dar 91, Rue Chbanat, near the fountain.

We can arrange taxi transfer from all over Morocco
From marrakech, one can take the supratour or CTM bus
