Why Us?

Holidays that are truly extraordinary! 

Why choose Castles in the Sand than another private holiday house let? Offering much more than a private holiday house, we help create a holiday experience of a lifetime. No ordinary holiday.

No Ordinary Holiday

Prospective clients often ask us what the point of difference is with Castles in the Sand compared to other private holiday house lets…

Well, beside the cool and quirky interiors - imagine a cross between Barbarella’s boudoir and a swinging 60's love pad and you’ll get the feel of Dar Beida!

Essaouira offers a wide variety of holiday houses to rent. If you are looking for something kooky, arty and unique yet centrally located for both the Medina and Essaouira Beach, then we have that covered. BUT… 

The real point of difference (often copied, rarely achieved so en pointe) is Emma’s personal hosting service that she offers clients: The Insider’s Tour of the Medina.

The Insider’s Tour of the Medina

Being an ex-pat, Emma’s local knowledge is both extensive and well experienced. Clients always cite this personal walking tour as completely invaluable - making their overall experience β€œno ordinary holiday” and one to be remembered for a lifetime. 

From shopping etiquette to the souk and the shop owners, the best restaurants in town to local supermarkets or market trips through to day outs lounging at little-known but luxurious pools to lively or chilled nights out in town. Emma has and shares this knowledge. Her relationships with the various proprietors ensure that all of her clients are well looked after when they visit. She is always happy to suggest or arrange days or nights out - even local cookery classes!
