“Super stylish”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I absolutely loved staying at Dar Beida with our 3 sons. After travelling for over a month before reaching Essaouira it was a perfect base giving us all a little much needed space to ourselves. The place is an absolute style inspiration with an eclectic mix of local wares and stunning artworks. Emma goes beyond the expectations of a host, being there on arrival and taking us on a walking tour of the Medina, introducing us to her favourite locals. A definite highlight of our travels in Morocco.

“From start to finish Emma Wilson and her Dar Beida are superstars.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A great hostess with a sixth sense to what would make her guests stay complete. Emma gave me the inside scoop on the whole medina. On the first day she walked me around on an introductory tour, helped me get Moroccan phone and offered up all kinds of interesting info on shopping, eating, excursions, prices of taxis, etc. Intelligently designed, Her houses are traditional old properties that have been outfitted superbly and delightfully furnished with clever indigenous details. I felt at home, very comfortable and inspired to make art. The whole experience was beyond all expectations. I loved Essaouira and Dar Beida and will be returning. The photos are a true testament to the property's condition and cleanliness -no surprises this is one amazing house!

Dar Beida

I have coveted Dar Beida for well over 4 years. I knew that one day when the chance to go to morocco came along I would go directly to Essaouira and stay in what is quite possibly the loveliest home ever.

All the photographs of this house online don’t do it justice it really is magnificent. The tens of rooms, tunneling up 4 or 5 floors, the edgeless white walls, décor, art and views all make it a place you want to stay in longer than booked. Don’t leave without having tasted Amina’s tagine. Hers are truly the best.

The house is in the older less touristy part of the Medina and so if you stay longer than a couple of days you get to really feel the rhythm of the neighbourhood, get familiar with the baker, grocers, kids playing soccer and so on. Emma is an excellent and generous host, a Londoner in Morocco, ask her anything and she’ll do her best to make it happen.

Hoping we will go back soon.

“We love this place!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

There aren't enough superlatives to describe Dar Beida, we could hardly bear to leave. Emma is a wonderful host, she took such good care of us when we arrived tired and jetlagged and a bit confused! She makes sure you know all the right places to visit during your time there: do everything she tells you and you won't go wrong. Then there's the house... after the pace and noise of Marrakech it was a very peaceful place to spend a week, despite being in the middle of the medina. Emma has created a little sanctuary, very peaceful and great for winding down. There's also a perfect sun-trap at the top of the house for having your morning coffee, or just napping during the day. I can't recommend this place enough.
