About the property

Luxury villa with private pool in Apple Gardens Resort and Spa, Marrakech

Our beautiful villa consists of one double ensuite bedroom, two twin bedrooms each with ensuite, lounge, Satellite TV area, dining area and European kitchen, large private garden and private pool. Sleeps 6 plus there are two sofa beds in the lounge suitable for children.

Our villa is conveniently placed just outside Marrakech centre. Apple Gardens is a fully contained luxury resort with a boutique 5 star hotel with its own large pool, restaurant, snack bar, spa, fitness gym, small golf course, tennis courts and children' playground.

The resort has been designed by one of the country's top architects and consists of 51 private villas and a boutique hotel.

Cars are not allowed to drive through the development which makes it a quiet and safe environment but parking is close. Our villa is located at the far end of the resort away from the parking area and is one of the most private of all the villas on the resort.

The villa has been furnished with some traditional Moroccan features and benefits from cultural design influences but also features stylish, contemporary interiors.

The pool is 8m x 4m and on average 1.2m deep. It is cleaned daily and has its own filtration system which runs at intervals throughout the day. It is not heated, alarmed or fenced. We have an outside dining area and sun loungers.

There is an air conditioning and heating unit in all the rooms which can be used for no extra charge.

Maid service: An arrival and departure clean is included in the villa rental. Further cleaning can be arranged for an additional cost.

There are local shops for purchasing food/drink. An arrival tagine and welcome provisions can be arranged.

We have our local representative who will meet you on arrival and he is able to arrange additional services or answer any queries you may have during your stay.

About Karen McLeman

I live with my husband and three teenage children in Yorkshire, England. We bought our villa in Marrakech in 2010 as somewhere where we could enjoy all round sunshine and relax with our family.

Karen McLeman purchased this villa in 2010

Why Karen McLeman chose Marrakech

We wanted to be able to enjoy the fascinating culture and wonderful climate that Morocco has to offer. The 3 and a half hour flight means that we can visit our villa for a long weekend. We love the location of the villa as we can visit the sites of Marrakech but still be able to have a quiet relaxing base to return to at the end of the day.

What makes this villa unique

The villa has Moroccan influences but is modern and comfortable with European kitchen. Our villa is at the far end of the resort so it one of the most peaceful and private villas on the resort. The resort offers the facilities of a 5 star hotel, with restaurant and spa, and we can enjoy the quiet and privacy of our own villa.

Villa needs maintenance Do not stay here!

  • 1 of 5

we stayed here in April muslim family of 2 adults 3 kids.

Firstly NOT good for children. Limited Wi-Fi no dvd player no english channels except bbc world news and nothing for kids to do. They were extremely bored so had to take them out daily....This is fine except villa is VERY far from everything. No local cafes supermarkets parks NOTHING!

Villa pool is freezing despite sunshine all day...gardens need maintenamce...broken crib...filthy highchair....step broken on outdoor stairs which my daughter fell over and cut herself....dirty walls...flies EVERYWHERE and ant holes all over garden we actually had exterminators...TWO broken toilets ...broken towel rails...broken lovely roof terrace like the other villas which had chairs day beds etc...this villa had nothing on the roof terrace except again poor maintenance and no hot OR cold water at all on the day of our departure!!!

Maid cooked nice food/breakfast for us which was one thing we liked but this was all at our own expense and only thing we liked about our stay. Limited outdoor privacy if you are a covering muslim woman.

Villa is very spacious and bedrooms are kept nice this is the only positive about it. I would strongly advise anyone interested to look elsewhere or at least pick another villa that is well maintained. Very dissapointed no compensation was even offered especially as daughter cut her head on broken tiling so we are now seeking legal action.

Lounge chairs advertised in pic are not what they have either! There are 5 dirty cream and green ones and a broken black one hidden around side of garden!

We rented this villa for 3 nights and we were actually really disappointed with our stay. I think it would have been nice for sufiane to meet us on arrival and give us a quick run down of the house, instead he left it up to the maid who didn't speak English.

We weren't sure how to operate the oven. - although the maid did show up the next morning and show us.

Couldn't find the light switches to the seating area - ( hidden behind sofa, the security guard came to help)

But the main issue was that there were no working lights at the front of the villa. So we couldn't actually see.... and this wasn't sorted during our stay.

No lights in the kitchen meant we were forced to go into the city to eat each night, expensive taxi ride and a waste of groceries that had already been purchased.

There was also no working AC and this was not sorted during our stay.

Going forward maybe put together a welcome pack, if Soufiane will not be meeting guest and definitely check everything works before guests stay!

Brilliant holiday

Thank you Karen. We had a great time and are all so relaxed after a week at your lovely villa. We enjoyed having a cook to prepare our meal one night and Soufiane was really helpful.

Car: recommended

The villa is situated 20 minutes from the centre of Marrakech on the road to Fez and the villa is a great base to explore the city. It is one of 51 villas at the Apple Gardens Resort and Spa which includes a 6 hole par 3 golf course. Marrakech is famous for the Djemaa El Fna, souks or markets and the Koutoubia mosque.

The villa has views of the Atlas mountains where skiing is available. Three Internationally acclaimed golf courses are close by.

All major car hire companies are represented at the airport so guests can either hire a car and drive to the villa or a driver/taxi can easily be arranged.
