    Description

    Hey we're Sarah and Youssef with little Luna (16months), 2 dogs and a straycatsproject in front of our house. We are a mixed moroccan-spanish-swiss family who has a vision on the moroccan coast, next to the beach: To run a sustainable oriented, peaceful, healthy and community supporting guesthouse. We understand life to uplift each other and not to get stuck in the thought of concurrence or greed. Concerning the lack of consciousness for mother nature in Morocco it is our intention to inspire where we can - for example using a waterfilter, solarpanel, doing little beachcleanup-projects and running the charity "Support-Flow to Morocco" where we support poor people in the Moroccan mountains with donations as warm clothes, good shoes or school materials. For the moment we don't need volunteers, but we are keeping you updated as soon as we require again volunteers.

    ♥️ People who share our passion for creativity, who have crazy ideas but in the same time know what they are doing.
    ♥️ People who REALLY want to be part of our projects and to bring it together further. Your motivation should NOT be just to spend vacations and go surfing.
    ♥️ People who are flexible as in Morocco most of the things you cannot really plan.
    ♥️ People who like DIY (do it yourself).
    ♥️ People who are interested in sustainability & helping each otherand who like to make an impact.
    ♥️ People who would like their daily life for some days behind them and just want to arrive in the moment.
    ♥️ People who would love to live with us and enjoy Morocco with all its colours, scents and the slowed down pace.

    We are very open minded and happy about ideas and people who wants to understand and uplift our project. Together we are strong <3 We are both full of energy and creative people. We love to create.

    We live in Tamraght, next to the beach, 45 minutes from Agadir Airport, 4hrs from Marrakech airport. The guesthouse is on the quiet border of a smaller traditional moroccan village, the mountains in the back, the sea in the front. This region is a famous surfing area as there are many surfspots within a few minutes.

    Our community place aka guesthouse
    A sustainable oriented place for sharing moroccan art and culture, allowing guests to slow down and arrive in the moment. With running a business we try to make an impact where we can: There is a lack of awareness for the nature. Everywhere is rubbish. So we are looking for people who are interested in sustainable solutions. Also: People who are willed to support our side-projects: A charity for straycats and the charity "Support-Flow to Morocco" where we support poor people in the Moroccan mountains with donations as warm clothes, good shoes or school materials.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Step out of your daily life, leave your to do's at home and arrive in the moment. In Morocco there is another time management existing. The moroccan culture you will experience best when you live with someone local and when you become active in a project. Then you start to understand where the cultural characteristics are. We are offering you a space for creativity and your ideas in a safe place in a traditional moroccan village close to the beach. See the glowing stars by night, recharge under the moroccan sun during the day and dive into some waves after work.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    In your free time you can chill on the beach, practice yoga, hit the waves at many surf spots, discovering beautiful places as Paradise Valley close by, getting lost in the moroccan treasures on the souk (market) in Agadir. Or just slow down, as in Morocco everything is working much more slower.
