Description from owner
Villa Seahouse has a unique location overlooking the Atlantic. It sits on a cliff giving 180 degree ocean views and the terraces are not overlooked - something rare. The villa has a stunning interior, engaging with space, light and sea - our architect also designed the MACRO Art Museum in Rome.
Essentially, Seahouse is a comfortable family home. In building and furnishing we’ve aimed to use local and sustainable materials. The villa is available for self-catering rentals and we offer on-call support to guests during their stay. Guest reviews give a good impression of what to expect.
There is 300sq.m of bright interior space with a bridge through a triple-height living and dining area. In the central space you find the salon with direct access to our heated pool, a dining area with seating for up to 12 guests and a well-equipped kitchen. You also have access to a large hammock. The central area has several large paintings and is occasionally used as an exhibition space.
All 6 bedrooms have integral bathrooms, sea views and access to a terrace or balcony. The 6th bedroom is also set up as our TV room with 2 single sofabeds - great for kids.
Villa Seahouse is all about the view!
There are 300sq.m of terraces and balconies. Our heated pool (16m) is not over-looked so offers complete privacy. Terraces have sun loungers and seating with tables for dining outside.
The villa is in a quiet residential area and inside it is a world of its own. A 10-minute walk along the beach or over the old airfield takes you into the small Berber town of Sidi Ifni for the markets, shops, restaurants and even two bars! Sidi Ifni was built by the Spanish in 1930’s and is renowned for its Art-Deco public buildings.
We can arrange transfers from Agadir airport – the drive down takes about 2 hours. Youssef, the manager, can also arrange help with cooking, taxis and car hire, child-minding and day trips - extra charges apply.

We've stayed at villa seahouse before, loved it and said we'd be back. It's just as good as we remembered. Peter is so helpful as are Youssef and Aicha who work with him - nothing is to… More
“Stunning villa, stunning location”
Had a great two week stay with my wife, although the weather could have been kinder, many days of sea fog. The villa is perched on the clifftop overlooking the Atlantic, magnificent panoramic views. B… More
Response from the owner I’m pleased you enjoyed the villa and Sidi Ifni, despite some niggles. The house has lots of space and usually lots of sun – that’s the point! Ifni isn’t a developed resort which is the attraction for most guests. The local council is not well-resourced and so don’t have equipment to clean beaches like Agadir and of course the sea everywhere deposits rubbish with each tide. But I’ve just been on the beach and apart from the high water mark it’s clean – 3km of sandy beach and only some guys fishing, some surfers plus lots of terns. As you said, visitors don’t get hassled and so it’s a chance to take part in a simpler way of life. I’m not sure if simple/basic is good or bad? Eating super-fresh sardines grilled in the basic restaurants by the fish market tastes good to me. And the Sunday market is a typical African market for local people with heaps of fresh fruit and vegetables along with dates, spices…all wonderful to look at. I’ve also found Italian linen jackets among the second clothes – not bad for £2! I’m glad you’ll come back – 30% of our guests do and I’ll make sure you get an extra bottle of wine in your welcome pack…
Sidi Ifni is a beautiful town with a unique charm and Villa Seahouse is a superb hideaway to enjoy a relaxing time. Everything was just perfect; communication and directions and the house - wow the ho… More
Response from the owner Thanks for your review. You obviously ‘got’ Sidi Ifni. Most guests enjoy finding somewhere a bit off the beaten track. As you say it’s a comfortable house with lots of space. While it’s fun to be in the sea it can be difficult to swim in the Atlantic so great to have the choice of the 16m pool! And the big views from all the terraces make it easy to spend a lot of time chilling. I hope you come back – many guests return and so become friends.
“A very special house in a very special town”
We - two families of all together eleven people - stayed here at Peter's beach house one week in july 2017. Everything prior to our stay was handeled very smooth, with Peter being quick to answe… More
Response from the owner Thanks for such a detailed review and I'm glad both families had such a great time. Your review will help future guests know what to expect. Lots of our guests return and I think that's because of the location - the big views are superb. Guests often say how much they enjoy the sound of the ocean as well as the quiet pace of life! So - we hope to see you again soon!
The location is excellent just as shown in pictures. Great views of ocean and you can hear waves 24 hours. Weather in December was perfect at 20+, hot but not too hot.Sea temperature was warm too. Sidi Ifni is a quite town with minimal tourists but still plenty to do and food is really good standard. Variety of local dishes as well as pizza, pasta n chips. Locals are friendly, some speak English but majority speak French. The accommodation is really well designed, plenty of books and facilities are good. The manager Yousef visits everyday and is available by phone and text, speaks fluent English and very helpful. Owner is British and was really helpful with advice before the trip and arranging transfers. The villa is 10 years old so has weathered and aged so not quite as shown in photos, hence 4 star rating. Highly recommended, you won't regret going here if you're after a quite getaway with amazing views and sounds of waves.
Response from the owner Thanks for another great review. I'm pleased you 'got' Sidi Ifni - it has an 'away from the rest of the world' feel to it. Yes, the villa has lots of space and privacy - always great views and light. Of course to get the superb views it's an exposed position with lots of salt and sun thrown at us so we keep working away at repainting and maintenance. As you say, it's very comfortable, guests are well looked after and we'll be happy to welcome you back!
“Ouverte sur l'océan”

Response from the owner Merci pour votre avis - c'est top! Et merci de donner aux clients une idée de l'endroit - c'est très spécial avec de grands espaces et toujours l''océan. Il a juste besoin d'amis plus spéciaux pour profiter de tout ça ...
“Amazing and delightfull stay”
In such a quiet, remote and (luckily) untouristy place like Sidi Ifni, the discovery of this house is purely amazing. The architecture, the amenities, the location (overlooking the Atlantic ocean), th… More
Response from the owner We're happy you enjoyed your stay. Yes, it's a lucky find - a place away from the world and still with all your home comforts! It's a great space to chill with a bunch of friends. For families there are lots of activities in the area - kids love the beach and you can keep an eye on them from the terraces. Glad you enjoyed the architecture and hope you return!
“Perfect family retreat”
Our extended modern family enjoyed ten wonderful days of elegant relaxation in this dreamy bolthole on the edge of friendly Sidi Ifni. The pictures relly don't give you nearly an idea of how big … More
Response from the owner We certainly enjoyed having you to visit - your family made a big impact! Glad you enjoyed the villa - even with a large group there are lots of spaces around so it's always possible to find a quiet corner. Of course sometimes the sound of the sea gets rather loud - a good noise. Come back and see us soon.
“First rate - highly recommended”
The owner, Peter Duffin, and his team - Aicha the cleaner, Youssef the Property Manager and Massaud the driver - all did everything in their power to ensure we had a wonderful stay. They were all abso… More
