The Ocean Vagabond Guest House is perfectly located 100m from the beach and 200m from the old Medina of Essaouria. Buff coloured floors and all white walls are brought to life by brightly coloured cushions and rugs, African portraits, wildlife paintings and chic vases and lamps.
In keeping with the cosmopolitan design throughout the public areas, the 14 rooms, set over two floors, combine Moroccan textiles with bright colour schemes. Each room has been named after an exotic place in keeping with the ethnic slant of the property and features an individually crafted bed that has been designed with the room's name in mind. Some rooms have private terraces and all offer views of either the coast or the old city.
There is a colonial-style bar and outdoor pool set within lush, well-kept gardens and a restaurant, which serves fresh, local cuisine. A library on the living room's mezzanine and a reading room are at your disposal, complete with comfortable chairs and a plasma satellite TV with DVD player. Several small living rooms are also available for peaceful relaxation.
