About the Owner

Hello, I'm Peter and I moved from London to south Morocco for all-year sun. Sidi Ifni is a magical place built in the Spanish art-deco style right on the edge of the Sahara. It's easy to spend a lot of time birdwatching, fishing and walking... It's called "the great escape!"

Special villa in a special place

  • 5 of 5

We rented the villa for a family group - 8 in all including the grandparents! The villa lends itself to a great family chill out - there are lots of private spaces dotted around with a very spacious central living area to come together. Terraces everywhere with comfortable seats and choices to lie in the sun or avoid it. It was such a help having a daily maid - she is wonderful and cooked for us several times. Youssef the manager is so helpful - he came as soon as we called and sorted out reservations for trips and restuarants. The villa is bigger than you expect from the photos and it's true what other guests have said - you can sit and watch the sea for hours. Plus we had people fishing and surfing below the villa at times and that was fun to watch. Ifni itself has a neglected charm - it's not a developed tourist resort. We found it very relaxing and friendly. No one bothered us and everyone everyone was helpful if we needed anything. Peter the owner is very easy to communicate with and sorted out several issues before we arrived - including some shopping! I couldn't recommend this place highly enough - it's really a one-off, special place with lovely artworks, amazing spaces and always the sound of the sea!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the villa. It sounds like you had a great time. I also enjoy watching the sea when I stay in villa 'seahouse'; it's great to have the choice of swimming in the sea and the pool. You're right to mention that Sidi Ifni is a quiet, safe place - it's great escape from our busy lives. Many of our guests return so I hope we will welcome you back!

We had a 2-week trip to Morocco – this villa being the highlight. It’s everything you expect – architect designed for space and great views; it really is a one-off. So the listing is accurate and everything is as described; it’s also clean and well-maintained. Sidi Ifni is a lovely town – we stayed here last autumn in another villa and came back to spoil ourselves with some friends; very gentle and peaceful – we felt safe and at home and no one bothered us. We enjoyed walking and lying in the sun of course. The owner, Peter, arranged for people to come and cook several evenings – that’s a great bonus. [Our first week was at Aglou and while the villa there was good it’s in a development with building work still ongoing plus it wasn’t close to anywhere so although cheaper it wasn’t good value.] This villa is very special so it’s worth paying extra. The views are breathtaking especially walking outside first thing in the morning. The staff are helpful without getting in the way. We enjoyed the Nomad restaurant which is within walking distance plus it’s easy to buy alcohol in Sidi Ifni – not true other places. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: I'm pleased that you enjoyed Sidi Ifni and found everything as it should be in villa 'Seahouse'. Also pleased that you think it is a villa worth paying extra for - for the moment our rates are competitive. We're always happy to arrange catering at the villa so that our visitors can truly relax. We look forward to you all coming back again!

Although it’s several months since we stayed in ‘seahouse’ I can’t forget the interior. I read reviews about the house before we visited which said it was better than the photos – it’s true. The space and light has real wow factor. We had great weather and really didn’t want to do much except lie by the pool and read. It was perfect. We also slept a lot and ate a lot – chefs came to cook for us two evenings which was a real treat. The fish market was another hit – incredibly fresh lobster and sole. Can’t recommend it all highly enough.

From the Owner

I designed and built the house with help from an architect friend. It's a special site which allows for uninterrupted coastal views. I chose Sidi Ifni because the town and region remain unspoiled - we're on the edge of wilderness.

From the Owner

This part of Morocco is unspoilt and the noise of the ocean is the only interruption. Our terraces are not over-looked which offers a rare privacy. Plus we're right by the beach - surfing or fishing anyone? The design offers an unusual triple-height interior with amazing space and light. It's a place removed from the rest of the world - perfect for unwinding from a high-pressured job.
