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. Location: 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. Apartments: 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. More:... 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. More

Legassi Gardens embodies Ghana’s golden beauty, tradition and community. A lush canopy of trees keeps the property cool and fresh. Flowers and fruits brighten the compound and chickens, puppies and kittens skirt under foot. Despite the often oppressive heat and humidity of Accra, Pokuase’s hillside...More

About the neighborhood
Escape the crowds and concrete chaos of central Accra! We are located in an emerging and pleasant residential / business area in the hilly suburbs of Accra (our Stockbroker belt...!) where you will live amongst and meet with local people, as well as other tourists! Find us on a hill at Pokuase Junction/ACP Estates Junction, a few minutes’ walk up from the shops and stalls of our junction, and from the main road (Accra to Kumasi motorway), where local buses and taxis can take you into Achimota (with the largest bus terminal in Ghana), Circle, Madina/Haatso, via Kwabenya road, Lapaz and Kaneshie or central Accra; and going the other way- deep into the rural areas, past Nsawam, Aburi and beyond...The new motorway has reduced travel times miraculously, so that Circle is now less than 20 minu...
