Th apartment is separate and private, tastefully furnished with local furniture, fabrics and art work and decorated to feel like 'home'. It is surrounded by fruit trees and flowers in our garden, and so you can share our pawpaw, coconuts or mangos!
Enjoy a relaxing stay in Accra at Legassi Gardens Apartments- a blend of African roots and Caribbean flair, now with UNLIMITED broadband wireless internet access, with a SOLAR- POWERED option from our provider.
The apartments are completely self-contained with a choice of either 2 bedrooms or a spacious studio. They are set in a garden compound, with many trees and flowers; and table tennis and badmington can be played al fresco. There is also an on-site Health and Convenience Store and Vegan Cafe.
We offer the apartments with big discounts for long stay /students /interns/ volunteers and single occupants.
Our area, Pokuase, is a vibrant and bustling part of Accra with lots of local shopping, bars and 'hangouts' called 'spots'. It is particularly interesting at night as the shopping zone is open very late, with bargains and local foods on sale. The area is ideal for the adventurous tourist, wanting to experience the culture of Accra. Guests can feel free to wander, or just jump on a trotro and blend in. Pokuase is also becoming increasingly more 'Cosmopolitan', with many exclusive 'Gated Residential Estates' in the area.
We are around 10 minutes from Achimota Mall, a modern shopping centre with Shoprite and other international stores. We are also close to the shopping and bars of Kwabenya, around ACP area; or 20/25 minutes from Accra Mall off Tetteh Quashie; or 20 minutes from the new 'West Hills' Mall, by car.
Each of the 2 bedroom apartments can accommodate up to four persons, with 2 people sharing each bedroom; we can also allow a 5th person to use the sitting area with an extra bed or mattress, at a small additional fee.
The STUDIO APARTMENTS are for 1-2 persons, and are a completely new build, with fantastic views of the town and beyond, and easy access to the roof terrace..
The apartments are regularly refurbished (usually after each long stay occupant), tiled throughout, and tastefully furnished, with basic kitchenette (with table top cooker, fridge, cooking utensils); sitting area with television and fans; shower room; private patio with seating and shoe rack; and own private front door for entrance.
The price is always negotiable; and for long stay guests the rent is paid monthly. The price is inclusive of:
-electricity, water, gas
-cleaning, washing, gardening, security (although 'tipping' is standard)
-full maintenance services-off street parking
-wireless internet access
-backup generator, which we put on when light is off
-our own bore hole water source with a filtration system, so that water can be pumped straight into your tank to avoid water shortages in your apartment.
We have international guests from all over Europe, USA and beyond, visiting Ghana for a range of reasons (study, work, romance) all mixing in an Afrohemian atmosphere!
Live-in staff are on-site to provide security and assistance whenever needed, and take care of housekeeping, laundry and many errands for tips.
The 'ital' or Afro-vegan café is open for breakfast and closes in the late evening. We serve 'italized' Caribbean and local dishes, our own ital recipes and also prepare meals as requested.
We are a non-smoking establishment, but provide designated smoking areas when requested.
Our walled compound is environmentally cool: lush and green, with seating amongst the many flowers. We also have the ideal eco-conscious alternative to air-conditioning in our apartments: Well-Ventilated Rooms with Super-Sized Windows. Open your windows and enjoy the naturally cool hill-side breeze flowing through your apartment. This is better for your health, gentler on your skin, and completely harmless to our environment!
We are ideal for visitors who prefer not to stay in the cramped, noisy and exorbitantly priced centre of Accra surrounded by 'expats', but who are free to enjoy a relaxed stay in 'local' Accra, dipping in and out of the city centre! Sit in the garden and listen to our many birds, watch our garden butterflies, or play a game of 'Oware' under the palm frond canopy..
We are located on a hill just off the Achimota (N6) motorway in a residential area, accessible from either ACP or Pokuase Junction. There is a busy bus station at the junction, where you can get transport all over town, with rapid and frequent loading during the day.
Pokuase Train Stop is also only 3 minutes walk away, and you can take a train (when in service) into central Accra, or to Nsawam, twice daily, and back.
Our area is the traditional homeland of the Ga people, the historical custodians of the land of the capital city of Accra. If you come at festival times you can take part in exuberant dancing and celebrating with the local people, and enjoy the regalia of durbars honoring the local chiefs. There are also sacred shrines to the Ga people in our vicinity.

Weitere wichtige Infos
We have a vegan cafe and convenience/health store on site.
The cafe can prepare meals to order or you are welcome to try one of our daily specials.
We have staff who live on-site so please treat them with respect, and tip them for their assistance.
We are non smoking...but you can light up in the back gardens when you need to. Also, pets are not really welcome, as we have our own dogs, who are well behaved...except when they get close to other dogs...not in their gang!
I am a family-oriented person, so am patient and have no problem sharing my space. The compound itself is big, so everyone has their privacy and peace.
I love my music, and from time to time teach and play guitar, so if you bring your instrument and want to vibe that is no problem.
Also, I do a short 'gig', vocals and acoustic guitar, in my Vegan Cafe on Friday nights so come and support!
Following current affairs interests me and I am always ready to discuss any topic. Although 'home' in Ghana for over 15 years, I have lived in, travelled through or visited many other places, (Europe, US etc) so I take people as I find them, and enjoy the variety of cultures and opinions.
Me and my family are ready to welcome you here, and offer you your own private space within our compound. Always available, just ask me if you need any help.
