“Comfortable home for long stay in Accra”
Reviewed June 30, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

My husband, son, and I stayed for 12 days in November/December 2015. The home was comfortable and superbly clean. You should bring or purchase your own towels in Accra as the towels provided were not in great shape. The furniture was modern, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed to be comfortable (electric kettle, microwave, dishes, fridge and freezer). The maid Matilda was tremendously kind to us, did our laundry, and kept the home spotless. One bathroom in a bedroom had no door so that was awkward. The country's rolling power outages were a major inconvenience but that was not the owner's fault. There is a generator but as guests we had to pay for petrol to run the generator and the generator was quite loud when running. But, we were glad to have a generator at all. The distance to/from most stores, malls, the airport, University of Ghana etc was pretty hefty so catching a cab willing to drive us to and from the area (Adenta) was a challenge at times. Many cab drivers were unfamiliar with the area but carrying the portable wifi and using GPS to guide the driver helped. We always felt safe and any questions we had were addressed by Matilda. We would stay here again if distance from the places we wanted to visit weren't an issue. We highly recommend staying here. We love Ghana and look forward to returning!

Me and my friend stayed here between December 2015 and January 2016. It was such a beautiful place to stay and the caretaker was amazing, she was always available whenever we needed her. The only problem was the traffic and the place is abit far from town. apart from that I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful surroundings.

“Ivan Lodge ... The best of the best so far”

person found this review helpful

Upon all the bad experiences i have with my previous lodging places in Ghana, I finally find my full satisfaction with Ivan Lodge.

Starting with the owner Henry, I was amazed of this service at the first place which gave me the assurance that am at the right hand. His calmness, honestness and kindness.

The Lodge was extremely neat and in a very good quiet Environment. I have the most peaceful time ever since i started visiting Ghana 5 years ago annually. All the facilities are at their best place eg. Water, Electricity ( a Generator as a backup incase of Light off ) etc.

The care taker (Sister Matilda and her family) hmmm a wonderful woman with her respectful family... too humble and very caring. They always put things in place even before I thought of them. She is always there anytime i needed her. Thank you again Sister Matilda

Ivan Lodge will surely be the place you will like lodge during your stay in Ghana.

“far from accra”
Reviewed January 15, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

the place was clean and very well equipped. The maid provided us wlth all of our needs and was very friendly. However one of the rooms didn't have AC which made it very hot. The Wifi only worked for 2 days and then stopped working for the remaining 3 days that we stayed. The owner always responded to our messages. Next time we will prefer a location closer to Accra.

Great bungalow in a quiet location with good amenities and near airport and malls. Ideal for exploring surrounding areas with local taxi or bus. The owner Henry was very helpful and always available when needed. We had a great time in Accra and look forward too renting this property again on our next visit. Thanks again Henry for your help and support during our stay.
