“Charming Cottage in the heart of things.”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Casablanca Cottage is lovely, the house itself and both the public front yard and the private back yard. The house comes equipped with almost everything you could think of. However I have to say that as exotic and lovely the lamps and chandeliers are, they don't give a great deal of light, especially in the bedrooms. We would rent this place again; it was truly great.

“If I could give this six stars I would”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Maybe it would be better NOT to tell people what a nice house this was, how conveniently located it was to Queen Street, the theaters, the restaurants. Maybe it would be better NOT to tell people how all the amenities were included--we never had to buy dishwashing detergent, laundry soap,salt, pepper, and all those other little things that make vacation rentals a chore. Maybe it would be better not to tell people about the beautiful Moroccan touches, so nice that folks outside were taking pictures through the window of the chandelier in the dining area. Maybe it would be better not to tell people about the beautiful garden, patio, and front porch. We had a truly beautiful week in this house and the next time we go back to NOTL we plan to stay there again unless too many people read this review and rent it, making it unavailable...

Well what can I say? It is all true:) The house is 1/2 block from Queen street, it does have a wonderful front porch and a private side garden, my cleaning people are proud of their work and do a wonderful job. The light over the dining room table was made in Istanbul and purchased from www.palmyradesign.com. I own the home and love it, I like the fact that others do as well.

“Cozy Moroccan Retreat”
Reviewed 4 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My family and I had a great weekend at Casablanca Cottage from June 27-29, 2014. The house is decorated beautifully; yet maintains the original interior structure of the home giving it a warm vintage feel. The private patio and garden at the back was my favourite part and we spent a lot of time out there! Overall location of the house is amazing as it is just a short walk to the main town.

My wife and I love Morocco so we named both of my houses after that country. (Marrakech Mansion as well) If you are staying in Niagara the Lake you really need to in the Heritage district where you can walk to Queen Street, the Theatres and shops. Both of my homes are a block or less from Queen street. When we renovated both houses we tried to keep the best of the old and add modern conveniences that we all enjoy. The houses are mine; I love them and try to keep them like I do our own home. I am happy that you and your family enjoyed Casablanca Cottage and hope you can return in the future.

Thank you for the vote of confidence in returning to stay in one of my two houses. (I own Marrakech Mansion as well) Both houses are decorated in a fun Moroccan theme with bright colours plus antiques and handicrafts from Morocco. The fact that the houses are located in the Historic district of Niagara on the Lake makes for an easy walk to the shops, theatres and the lake. Thank you for your review and I hope to see you again next year.

This is my summer home as well, in fact my wife and I stayed for a few days last weekend. We spend a lot of time (as usual) in the garden, removing some plants that had died over the winter and planting new. We to spent some time on the front porch, enjoying a glass of wine after working in the garden. We love the house and I love to hear from others that do. Thank you for your review and I hope to see you again.
