Our B&B is an unpretentious, simple and comfortable hide-away for those seeking rest, relaxation, peace and quiet in unspoiled nature. We are on solar energy and try to have as little an impact as possible on our natural surroundings. As we are a new B&B (we just opened in February 2017!) we are still in the process of growing our own vegetable and fruit garden. We call our B&B "The Tree House" even though, in literal terms, we are not a tree house. It is a wood-frame, 3 story home, on stilts.
“After spending a week in Accra I was looking for a tranquil retreat away from the city to unwind and re-center before flying back to the UK. When looking for somewhere to stay, I was swayed by the beautiful pictures (friends were envious when I showed them) and amazing reviews. I booked 4 months ahead of my stay but Yao’s & Aaj’s communication with me from the onset was friendly, professional and very accommodating, I knew from then I had made the right choice. The beautiful idyllic setting of the Tree House served up relaxation and tranquility in abundance. I love the outdoors and nature, so I really felt at home here in among the natural surroundings. There is everything to love about the Tree House, the picturesque rustic and tranquil setting, the amazing views, the serenity and most importantly the exceptional hospitality from my hosts. Yao and Aaj are one of the most friendly and hospitable airbnb hosts that I have encountered. In-fact from the onset it felt like I was staying with family/friends, I was welcomed by the family with open arms and spent a lot of my time relaxing, conversing and sharing delicious morning/evening meals and snacks with the family on their beautiful inviting open terrace with its beautiful decor and abundance of potted plants wherever you turned (hand grown by green fingered Aaj), creating an extension of the tranquil idyllic grounds. We had so much to talk about and some interesting conversations. Yao is very knowledgable about Ghanain culture and history, he was engaging on all topics and a visionary which I could relate to and which enabled our conversations to flow naturally. Aaj and I had so much in common, it was like we were kindred spirits. Like myself Aaj is a extremely talented and creative soul with a lot of creative vision, we spent so much time comparing ideas and suggestions. Home cooks meals were plentiful and more importantly flavoursome and prepared with love by both Yao and Aaj (Yao’s Chicken and Omelette are worth the wait, and as an avid baker, I adored Aaj’s freshly baked chocolate bannana cake). I would have loved to have eaten much more especially hearing of Aaj’s amazing Ghanain speciality dishes, but I restricted myself due to a delicate stomach as a result of a meal I ate whilst in Accra. (One of many reasons i’ll be back is too sample Aaj's food) The tranquility extends to the guest house with its rustic charm infused with african decor throughout, it was truly a relaxing environment home away from home. I had the entire house to myself and the top floor room with charming room and ensuite shower which opens onto the stunning wrap around terrace. When I first arrived I was literally in awe, the view from the terrace was breathtaking you are literally surrounded by a 360 degree view of trees, lush greenary and view of the mountains (even though it was slightly masked by haze for by Hamanatt season, on a clear day i’m told you can see the skyline from Accra/Tema) I only stayed 2 nights but I managed to do the two main things on my list with the help of my hosts who kindly accompanied me first to Aburi Botanical Park passing first through Aburi town so I could see its history, reminiscent of its colonial past and its development. Yao’s engaging friend who has experience in botany and agriculture also came along and was very relaxed, pleasant and informative. Then off to Aburi craft market; although as it was a Sunday early afternoon, it was surprisingly quiet and most of the shops were closed but I still managed to grab a few nice gifts. I appreciate Yao’s patience whilst I looked around and Aaj especially, helping me haggle the prices to get some good bargains (as a designer i’m can be a bit lenient when i see the craftsmanship gone into the pieces, I need to embrace my Ghanaian bartering side:). We also had a delicious meal at Hillburi Lodge part of the resort with its breathtaking views. Although I spent quite a bit of time with the family, I did take in some quiet relaxing moments on the guest terrace, it was such a tranquil experience laying on the hammock and being soothed by the sounds of crickets as I read my book (well tried, the hammock gently rocks you to sleep). I cannot recommend the Tree House enough for a tranquil stopover and Aaj and Yao as lovely hosts. Their two boys Ian and William were so lovely, well mannered and utterly adorable, they just got on with things unfazed as they would normally helping to set the table, prepare the room etc I really did feel welcome and can’t thank you enough for my short but very sweet stay. I so look forward to the ideas we discussed coming to fruition in addition to you developing the experiences you already provide, as the Tree House and it’s location really lends itself well to different activities. I will definitely be back end of the year, this will be my go to place from now on whenever I visit Ghana and want a tranquil escape, not to mention I will coming back to visit two genuine people I now class as friends/family :)”

“Oasis is an understatement. Nana’s home is more beautiful in person than in pictures. The best part of our stay was the lovely Cynthia. Cynthia helps with keeping the place tidy, and making breakfast. She even helped me to catch a cab and get a sim for my phone. She lives close by and she is so sweet. She even made breakfast for us on her days off and shared her secret pesto recipe with us - thank you Cynthia!!! Nana’s home is everything. Beautiful, sunny, airy, charming, the artwork all over the home is enlightening. The plants and beautiful garden bring so much life and light into her home. Trust me you won’t want to leave. Nana was so accommodating and responsive. I was allowed to check in super early ... and Nana checked on me to make sure I arrived safely. The AC and WiFi worked perfectly. Her home is spotless and so chic and well designed. She even gave us Christmas presents !!! There is security onsite so I felt super safe. Catching an Uber to and from the location was very easy because of a nearby landmark. The best jollof is nearby at Kanzo Restaurant - delicious. I have no complaints I really loved the space and the only thing I would do different is rent Nana’s entire place rather than just rent a room in her place. Thank you Nana and see you again soon :-)”

“I was so lucky to call this place my home and oasis in Accra for the last 2 weeks! Nana was very responsive before arrival and everything was taken care of perfectly. The room I stayed in looked even lovelier than the pictures show. It’s hard to believe but the truth! :) AC and fridge were quite convenient! Sarah, the housekeeper, served a wonderful Breakfast (with coffee, fruits, toast and jam) on the patio - very nice since you get to enjoy a little breeze in hot and humid Accra. The trees surrounding the house are home to many birds, there is no need to set an alarm in the morning, just be woken up by the sound of the birds singing... apart from that I have had wonderful conversations with Nana and her son and we updated each other about what’s going on in Accra! Nana is very much into arts and crafts, cultural events and she has numerous recommendations for good restaurants and bars! The house is situated in the airport Residential Area in a nice neighborhood where you can find restaurants, cafés, yoga studios, a very good supermarket, atm, etc... I hope to come back to Accra one day and will definitely stay with Nana again!”
