Interaction with Guests
Either myself, my husband Lahcen or my brother-in-law Massaoud will greet you and show you around. We run a small cafe in the souk called Tifawin Cafe. This is a really, friendly local place where you can easily make friends and get to know more about the area. We are also happy to give you a small tour of Mirleft if you would like.
If you would like help organising any activities like: surfing, paragliding, walking, donkey treking, horseriding, fishing etc. we are happy to help, just ask!
The house is located in the very centre of Mirleft in a residential area on a wide well lit road with plenty of parking space. It is directly opposite the town football pitch and in the afternoon local people gather to chat and play. People here are very friendly so it is easy to feel part of the local community if you wish. It takes just a few minutes to walk to the souk (the main high street) where there are lots of shops, cafes and restaurants. It is great to be able to walk home easily after an evening out or to pop to the bakery for fresh croissants in the morning! Be sure to visit the souk on Monday when the weekly market takes place.
There is a local bus service that runs through Mirleft from Tiznit - Sidi Ifni. There are also grand taxis that run to both Sidi Ifni and Tiznit. We can also help you to book private taxis or rent cars.
Other Things to Note
We try to be as flexible as possible about arrival/departure times however if we have other guests arriving/leaving on the same day we need to ask for check in after 4pm and check out before 10am.
No smoking in the house please. There is plenty of lounging space in the garden where you can smoke.
We provide bedlinen and bath towels (all 100% pure cotton) but not beach towels.
We have a cat called Tina (he is actually a boy cat), who is very friendly and clean. He mainly lives in the garden and will probably stay out of your way unless you like to cuddle him and then he'll be your best friend. We will leave cat food - please could you put some out with water each day, in the garden.
