We booked the house to have an opportunity to stay at the beach in tranquil surroundings. That is exactly what we found after arriving. The setting is very “bounty like ”and indeed right at the beach. The outside of the house looks wonderful, and you have the beach at your feet. Fisher boats coming in in the morning and afternoon and the village people come by to sell bananas. Exactly what we were looking for. But we do have some comments though about the inside of the house. There are 4 bedrooms, 2 doubles and 2 singles and 3 bathrooms. We used only one room and basically the house was too big for the 2 of us. It can however only rented out as one unit, because of the layout of the rooms. If you are with a large party it might be the perfect place. We stayed in the room on the seaside which looked like it was the coolest one in the house with a breeze coming in and with a van above the bed we thought it would make us sleep at night. However, the breeze is gone at night and the van stopped because off a power cut (very common in Ghana). It made sleeping in the house very difficult. So be aware of the fact that you are adjust to sleeping in hot circumstances (which we were not) Also we found the matrasses not that clean and our sheets were made of polyester (which we changed with sheets from another bed, because it had cotton sheets on it). Also towels looked very worn down. Overall I would rate this accommodation as budget.
We had a good time though because of the caretaker Joe. He was wonderful, he went with us to the market in Elmina and we bought fresh fish which he cooked for us in the evening. ( I honestly could not have cooked in the heat in the kitchen) With anything you might need he will be able to give you a hand ( taxi, beer, shopping etc.) we enjoyed his company and learned a lot about the Ghanaian way of life. I you do not want to cook at the house or do not want to spend time with Joe, you can go to the Koh Sa beachresort only 500m then you can have some wonderful meals there as well.
Overall we had a good stay.
Un petit coin de paradis : une maison, vaste et bien aménagée, avec grand jardin planté de cocotiers et accès direct à la plage !
Un peu difficile à trouver : suivre Ko Sa resort, après Elmina et dans le village prendre le dernier chemin à droite.
Nous conseillons d'arriver avec ses produits de base (huile, café etc) car les ressources locales en épicirie sont lacunaires
We stayed for 2 nights in Melvin’s beach home - it was very peaceful and calm. Perfect to have a restful couple of days in preparation before heading to a festival in Dzita.
7 of us stayed and had a wonderful time with the help of Emmanuel who helped us familiarise ourselves with the neighbourhood and plan days trips to Kakum and Elmina/Cape Coast.
The setting was idyllic with hammocks to laze in overlooking the beach and we ate at a restaurant at Kosa down the beach front one night and cooked on the stove provided the next!
It was all so relaxing - we have a lot to thank for Emmanuel. Excellent hospitality!
