    Seaside (ocean front)

If Essaouira is one of the coolest places in Morocco (style not weather) then Jack’s Apartments must be one of the coolest places in Essaouira.

Nothing flash, nothing fancy, but these sure are cute apartments from which to enjoy a self-catering stay. All the basics are there - in what seems a topsy-turvy collection of accommodations built from three very old houses - to enjoy a memorable stay.

Built on the ramparts of the ancient Medina right by the water, you can almost smell the Atlantic Ocean. You can certainly see and hear it and there’s practically an unavoidable urge to jump right in. One can also almost literally feed the seagulls as they whiz by overhead.

The owner, Jack, from whom the apartments get their name, has delightfully kept the charm of old Essaouira in each of the ten or so apartments which come in various shapes and sizes take in a living room, one or two bedrooms and Moroccan style bathrooms, in addition to the local mosaics known as “zelliges”. It simply brims with Essaouiran charm. The maze like feeling is further enhanced by the different levels, stairs (a bit of a climb to the top floor flats) and mezzanines which all add to the sense of space.

The atmosphere is laid back, as you would expect in Essaouira (you may need to get the keys from a shop in the main street, for example) and there are also not many places around where you get all the above and can see the sun rise every morning from bed!

The other great thing is that whatever apartment you choose (we suggest taking a look at the specific accommodations by in the rooms section) you are always only a few steps away from the old town and Medina.

The traditional market, port and authentic restaurants are all nearby. You also get one of Morocco’s most famous beaches, one which is renowned for providing some of the best windsurfing conditions around.

In short, it is easy to see why Jack fell in love with the place. Easy going types looking for simple, tasteful accommodation by the sea will doubtless feel the same way.

Wir haben einige sehr schöne Tage im Apartment 6 verbracht - liebevoll eingerichtet, sauber, geräumig und direkt an der Kaimauer gelegen mit Traumblick auf den Atlantik! Altstadt, Strand und viele nette Restaurants in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Nur mit der Bestellung des Frühstücks hat es nicht geklappt, war aber nicht schlimm, da das Apartment eine kleine Küche hat und man in der Nähe alles fürs Frühstück einkaufen kann.

Das Apartment war für unsere Bedürfnisse als Familie mit drei Kindern optimal. Großzügig Platz, zentrale aber ruhige Lage so dass vieles zu Fuß erlebt werden konnte, freundlichste Bedienstete. Zwei kleine Einschränkungen: Die Wendeltreppe zur obersten Terrasse ist insbesondere durch Feuchtigkeit am Abend/Nacht eine Unzumutbarkeit aus Sicherheitsgründen und die Agenturdame macht den "falschen Guide" in dem sie für Hammams etc. wirbt, die ihr verbunden sind.

Lovely flat (no. 8), nice and quiet atmosphere at the border of the medina, a very polite, helpful and supportive staff - they did even our laundry and dishes. While booking unfortunately there was no evidence, that appartment no. 8 has no discrete access to the terrasses.
