This two bedroom apartment is spacious, comfortable and modern. and just 15 minutes drive into central Accra by private car or convenient taxi and bus services which stop outside the house. . Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and one bedroom has its own small private terrace where you can sit at night listening to the night calls of the animals. There is an indoor courtyard garden visible from most of the flat containing coconut and Papaye Trees. There are three terraces at the house, where you can sit for al-fresco wining and dining, relaxing or reading while admiring the breathtaking views over Accra below you. On a clear day you can even see the sea.

The apartment is very safe within a walled compound and a security man is on site. Good security at the apartment means it is is completely burglar proof.

The walks and vistas are amazing and you will learn a lot about the local community. Achimota Golf and Tema Golf courses are just a short drive away. There are many excellent restaurants and bars both withing walking distance and others easily reached by a short taxi ride.

The Greater Accra region

Aburi is apporx 1200 feet about sea level and has a cooler fresher climate than the rest of Ghana and Accra. Due to this there are hardly any mosquitos. The famous Botanical Gardens were planted during the colonial period and has plants from all over the world. There is the famous woodcarving market, where you can watch artisans at work and buy beautiful carvings much more cheaply than in Accra. There are numerous waterfalls to hike to in the local area. The beaches of Accra are within 45 minutes drive.


The famous Odwira Festival takes p lace in Aburi in early October . It is awash with color , pageantry and music. A must see. Also Ghanabike runs hikes and mountain bike tours across the mountains surrounding Aburi. You can hire cycles and equipment. There is a fantastic Golf course in Koforidua about 40 minutes drive across the mountains and also another in Accra and a third in Tema. All within 40 minutes drive.
