Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Gueliz - Anissa

Discover The Joys Of a Refined Stay In The Heart Of Marrakesh

If the attraction of Marrakesh is unrivalled, the pleasure of travelling wouldn’t be complete without an accommodation that measures up to the setting, typically in the spirit of Marrakesh.

The apartment of Anissa completely meets this expectation.

Its owners, who love beautiful things, entrusted the decoration to the best craftsmen of the town, who applied themselves to work with top quality materials such as cedar wood, Atlas walnut, copper, silk or Tadelakt.

This keen eye for perfection give rise to a unique, comfortable and bathed in light 100 m² area where it is good to come back after a long day of visits.

And precisely, to discover all the marvels of the “Pearl of the South” there is nothing better than walking.

The luxury apartment is wisely located in the town centre, in a quiet street of Gueliz district, famous for is many luxury shops and restaurants, a few steps from the most beautiful attractions.

The Medina is a few minutes by foot as well as the splendid Majorelle Garden or the famous Place Jamaa el Fna. Finally, everything is perfectly organised to minimise the travels by car which is often problematic in Marrakesh.

Finally, if you are searching for relaxation, you can always relax by the luxury pool located 400 m from the apartment and which access is gracefully offered by the owners.

Perfectly maintained with a wading pool for the children as well as all the necessary equipment to rest, this haven of peace, spread with palm trees and shimmering bougainvilleas, offers an exceptional and regenerative getaway.

And given that a stay in Marrakesh can’t be complete without the legendary Moroccan hospitality, the apartment of Anissa distinguishes itself from the simple holiday rental, often impersonal, by offering a good and warm welcome with high quality services and qualified house personnel always concerned about every detail and want the guests to really feel at home.

The magic works so well that this rental delights all the holidaymakers since more than 8 years.

Services included in the rental (non-exhaustive list):

- Airport-apartment transfer 24/7 with private driver

- Access to luxury pool every day for all the guests during the season in which it is open

- House personnel every day except on Sunday

- Personalised advices and tourist assistance

- Laundry services

- Telephone line with free calls to Moroccan landlines during the evening and the weekends

- Loan of a Moroccan mobile phone

- Unlimited high speed Internet connection

- Loan of a laptop computer (subject to availability)

- Television with International digital channels via Internet (excellent reliability)

- Baby equipment: secured bed, high chair, pushchair, changing and baby bath.

About Agnès & Philippe-Alexis

Maybe you’ve heard this advice from the writer Toni Morrison:

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

Our story of becoming holiday rental owners in Marrakech is something like that. In 2003, we were frequent visitors to Marrakech. As much as we loved the beauty and liveliness of the Red City, the accommodations were lacking.

At that time, Marrakech was becoming a global destination and there weren’t enough places for visitors to sleep.

Agnès & Philippe-Alexis purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Agnès & Philippe-Alexis chose Gueliz

Hotels were always booked during peak season. We had a place in mind where we would love to stay. It would be authentic, with local design and architecture. It would be in the center of everything. And it would provide a warm welcome with one-on-one travel advice and guidance from someone who knows the city well.

But, for us, that place didn’t exist yet in Marrakech. So we created it.

Over a decade later, we have a collection of properties in our beloved city of Marrakech.

Most rewarding for us is when our guests from around the world write to tell us how much they enjoyed their stay.

We love opening letters and emails with photos and stories from their trips. In fact, we love hosting guests so much we founded the “Community of Marrakech Hosts” for Airbnb hosts in our region.

As often as we can, we gather to chat about strategies for improving guest experiences and marketing our properties in Marrakech. At our last meeting, more than 60 people showed up to network and share ideas!

There are no two places more different than where we live—a picturesque village in the South of France—and energetic Marrakech, where we spend our holidays.

Perhaps that’s why we love them each so much: they compliment each other!

Our favorite activity when unwinding in Marrakech (there are many!) is to book a whole spa with a hammam, just for us (my wife Agnés and I). It’s the most serene and luxurious experience in the world.

What makes this apartment unique

If you have questions about how to enjoy Marrakech down to the last drop of mint tea, we would love to help.

Our goal is your great travel experience. Many of our guests have stayed with us before and returned—a testament to our dedication!

We look forward to hosting you and introducing you to the best of Marrakech. Please contact us for booking and travel information!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 1 week in marrakech and were very satisfied with Agnès and Philippe' appartment. It looked exactly like the picutres and we would definitely recommend it. The appartment is beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you need. Also very comfortable is the pick up service and the daily room service. Everything is reachable by walking distance, a car is not necessary. Gueliz is a perfect place, not only for shopping, there are many excellent restaurant like Grand Café de la poste, Bagatelle, La Trattoria, La Rôtisserie de la Paix. Agnès & Philippe are perfect hosts and help always with words and deeds. We would love to come back.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a winter month's stay in Marrakesh. The apartment was comfortable and convenient - located on a quiet street, walkable to everything we wished to do. Though long distance, the owner was readily available via email and happy to answer questions, offer suggestions and arrange to have minor problems fixed. The host offered private day trips and help with car rental if desired. We found other excursion options easily available as well. We enjoyed a day trip to the coast and an overnight trip through the Atlas Mts into the Sahara where we rode camels to an overnight Bedouin camp. I recommend both.

The modern apartment was carefully decorated and furnished with authentic Moroccan hand crafted decor. The ceilings, especially were amazing. The furnishings were comfortable and the space relaxing following a big day of walking and sightseeing.

We walked everywhere and felt safe at all times. English may be spoken in hotels but we heard none in the neighborhood. Having some French language would have been a big bonus. Cafes, shops and a modern supermarket are very convenient. The old city, famous square and the souks are about a mile down the main road. Forty cent bus transportation is available if we didn't care to walk.

Our only disappointment was lack of available outdoor space. We sought out parks and hotel courtyards for quiet time to read in the sun. The lovely pool courtyard pictured is available about an 8 block walk from the apartment after Feb 15. The apartment balcony is used for laundry and cleaning supplies, not really big enough to sit and enjoy as outdoor space.

Our month in Marrakesh was an adventure we will remember and recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thoughtful review of your stay in Marrakech! We’re glad you found the apartment to be convenient, authentic, and a relaxing place to return after your Marrakech excursions. Speaking of excursions, just to offer some further information for perspective guests: we offer to arrange unique, personalized excursions in Marrakech, with your own private car or our driver. Our goal is to introduce you to an authentic experience in the Red City, rather than a tourist-oriented one amongst a crowd of people. We are glad, however, that you enjoyed the tours provided elsewhere. We want everyone to fall in love with Marrakech as we have. :) Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you in Marrakech next winter! Your friends, Agnès & Philippe-Alexis

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter, and I spent a wonderful week in this truly remarkable apartment, filled with Moroccan architectural delights and decorative treasures coupled with modern conveniences. Daily maid service is wonderful. The location is perfect. We had no difficulty walking to all the major sites in less than 45 minutes. The apartment owners and staff are very helpful and responsive. We would return without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind review, and for your suggestion for future guests to install Zenmate before their arrival! Some websites are indeed blocked in Marrakech, so the software might prove useful. We’re pleased to hear that you enjoyed the apartment’s Moroccan architecture and design! Our top priority, in fact, is to give our guests an authentic experience in Marrakech, in an apartment as vibrant and interesting as the city itself. You mention the ease of walking to the major attractions and activities—we hope you had time to see them all! If not, we would love to host you for a return visit. Your friends, Agnés and Philippe-Alexis

Beautiful apartment, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is a well appointed and beautiful apartment with enough room for a family of four or two couples. Everything you need is here in a beautifully decorated suite. Everyone from the owners through to the concierge, manager and cleaning lady were unfailingly kind and helpful. You are close to the bus that takes you right to Place Jemaa el Fna and you can walk to many restaurants. Shopping is also close by. Marrakech is a wonderful city and our 2 month stay was made so much better because of the comfort of this apartment. We have used VRBO 4 times to rent apartments in various cities around the world and have never been disappointed. What you see is what you get!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your generous review of our apartment, and especially for your kind comments about our wonderful staff. We certainly appreciate the hard work they put toward ensuring the comfort of our guests, and we’re glad to hear others appreciate them, too! We will be sure to pass along your positive comments. Sometimes prospective guests worry that Marrakech is not safe; we always insist that this is not the case! Hopefully your comment about the city’s feeling of safety and comfort will also help lessen that worry. If you return to Marrakech, we would happily be your hosts again! Your friends, Agnés and Philippe-Alexis

Wonderful - so convenient for exploring Marrakesh

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Marrakesh, and we chose an apartment rather than an hotel, as we wanted to get the real 'feel' of the place. We also wanted to be free to explore and to shop, cook and eat authentic local food, as opposed to the food served up in hotels, which is often amended to suit the palates of the international guests.

This apartment stood out from lots of others, because there was so much information about the apartment and the location. Also, it seemed that it would be easy to contact someone to help if there were problems. Thankfully, that was not necessary, as everything was just perfect. I also appreciated the included WiFi, because although we were on holiday, I still needed to maintain contact with the UK in case any offers of work came through while we were away.

We really appreciated the included transfer, and the driver was very helpful, making suggestions for day trips and outings. It was good to be right in the heart of the city, yet in a quiet street which and it certainly wasn't excessively noisy. Whenever and wherever we go on holiday, we love to be in the heart of the Town, to soak up the atmosphere and the bustle, and this was perfect for us. And of course, I did some haggling in the market!

We did not know what to expect when we arrived at the accommodation, but we would have been happy as long as the apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Actually, we were delighted to find it was furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The bedroom was particularly atmospheric - it felt like we were sleeping in an Arabian fairy tale!

Everyone we came into contact with was extremely helpful and friendly, and we would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone. In fact, we're already looking at dates to rebook for next year, because our week in Marrakesh passed by all too quickly! We'd also like to explore a little further afield, as the area has lots to offer.

Thank you, Agnes and Philippe-Alexis for allowing us to experience the real Marrakesh in your beautiful apartment. It really did feel like a home from home.
