This is a house full of contrast and contradiction; Moroccan charm combined with distinctly cosmopolitan overtones, sumptuous dark mystery against sunlit clarity with chic style and laid-back comfort. Dar Qawi - Riad by the Sea is interesting and eclectic in a prime position within the bustling medina and only a few minute’s walk from the beach and the many wonderful restaurants and cafes.
The tinkling of an antique alabaster fountain welcomes you as you step from the bustling street over the threshold into a generous open-plan reading room adjoined by a small tea kitchen. There are three bedrooms; a double and a twin with their own en-suite shower rooms and the master suite which has an en-suite bathroom as well as a dressing room and nursery. Another flight of stairs leads you to the property's first roof terrace which is walled and completely private. Next door to this is the fully equipped kitchen, a separate laundry room with a washing machine, an outdoor shower to cool off and a table and chairs for alfresco eating.
The house is let as a whole and rates include breakfast and a daily maid service. Our housekeeper is an excellent cook and is happy to prepare picnics, lunches or supperes at very reasonable prices. Flowers, bottled water and basic provisions await guests and a satellite TV, a DVD player, a CD player, an i-Pod dock, board games and books are provided for entertainment. Plenty of electric heating and warm blankets are available in the rare event of cool weather. If required, our local English property manager can arrange for taxi transport, cooking lessons, guided souk tours, visits to the Hammam, camel or horse riding, quad biking and kitesurfing, trekking, boating or golf.
Dar Qawi is a great place to stay for families, groups of friends or twosomes all year round. Whether you want to get away from it all and just chill out in the house, use it as a base from which to explore the local area and its historic sites or indulge in the many opportunities for action-packed sports; here you can get into the spirit.
