Ayikoo Beach House Ghana
Mid March I had the privilege to stay in the beach house for a few days. What a wonderful attractive house, what a beautiful garden and the beach and the sea a few meters away. The house had everything a person can imagine for a comfortable stay. The previous revieuw mentions the word 'spooky'. If this means the same as atmospheric, full of character and fully equipped, then I agree : )The friendly and helpful staff ensured safety, nice company and privacy when needed. Never before have I been with my feet in sea in the middle of the night. Never before in Ghana have I seen a beach so clean. There is enough to do in the area around the beach house. But that is not necessary at all. Just being, enjoying, it was allowed, it went automatically. From the bottom of my heart I can recommend Ayikoo beachhouse to everyone. To anyone who loves nature, the sea, but also comfort and wants to get away from stress, crowds and obligations. It was only three days, enough to be able to enter the hustle and bustle of Accra with full energy.
