The SpaceWe named this penthouse studio Zen because it's a lovely, peaceful place if you want your own little private, self contained studio room in Dakhla, where you can totally relax after a day on the water, exploring the desert, or whatever brings you to Dakhka, while still being close to the town, shops, cafes, and some great surf spots and beaches. You can cook, bbq on the patio overlooking the lagoon, sunbath privately, watch the sunrise over the lagoon, or have a drink as the sun goes down. It's a very nice neighbourhood with friendly locals, nice vibes, and cafes, mini marche and pharmacy within a 5 minute walk. Guest AccessThere is a private patio the same size as the studio which is ideal for storing boards / kitesurf equipment. Alternatively, we give guests access to another room, inside our apartment where we store our equipment. Interaction with GuestsWe live in the apartment on the first floor and are available to give any local advice or help with anything that's needed!
We can do airport pick ups and drop offs, and offer a range of 'Ride & Guide' 4X4 trips to the best kiting and surfing spots, as well as kitesurf training, coaching and trips tailored for your level and aims. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is very conveniently situated at the entrance to Dakhla town, in the quiet neighbourhood of El Kssam 1, on the edge of the lagoon. There is a good little mini marche a 5 minute walk down the road, selling good fresh bread and most essentials. There is also a pharmacy, cafes, fruit and vegetable stalls, butchers, and other little shops just across the road from the mini marche.
Dakhla town centre is a 2 minute taxi ride, or approx. 3o minutes walking.
The surf / kitesurf / windsurf wave spot of Foum Labouir is 5 minutes by car, la Sarga surf spot is 10 minutes, and the top, north part of the lagoon for kiting is a 25 minutes drive. Getting AroundThere are always plenty of 'petit taxis' at the end of the street, to go into the town centre or Foum Labouir. They cost 50c (5 Moroccan Dirham) per trip in the day and 90c (9Moroccan Dirham ) in the evening.
These taxis only operate within a catchment area around the town and near by beaches.
There are rent a cars, and 4x4 trips if you want to go to the kiting / surfing spots off road, or on desert excursions.
