About This Listing
This is one out of two similar rooms. Lovely rooms in the ground level of a new house Available for travellers from a single person up to groups of 12-14 persons.
This is not luxary, but do expect a nice standard house where you really feel at home. Price level like a hostel, but here you get much more and possibility use the kitchen and cook your own food.
For great comfort and privacy, there are two master bed rooms, each self contained with double bed, chair, closet, fan and toilet/bath room. Each room suits perfect two persons, but extra mattresses can be arranged for a little extra fee (or use your own sleeping matts if you have some). The two rooms have two separate listings on airbnb.
Pleese note that this is a simple room with no luxary facilities It means that - as most places in Ghana and Africa - sometimes there is light off. We have solar or battery lamps.
If you travel in a larger group, the house has a big hall and empty rooms, where extra mattresses can be arranged.
You have access to a living room with TV and well provided kitchen with a stove, fridge, blender to make fresh smoothies. You also have access to a nice terrasse where you can enjoy a drink or a healthy cup of moringa tea, and from here you can also watch the monkeys play in the trees in the early mornings.
There is also the possibility of using the host's labtop with internet connection, as long as you are ready to pay the credit yourselves.
Interaction with Guests
Kwesi, your host, is also staying in the house. He will help and guide you. But he is also a busy and hardworking young man.
The house is in a new residential area Green Hill, about 2 kilometers from the center of Cape Coast. You will find lots of trees and a nice breeze keeping the mosquitoes away.
You are close to town, but not in the middle of the noisy lively centre.
From the house there is easy access to town with taxis (both shared route taxis, which is the cheapest way, and 'drop-in' which your own hired taxi, which is still cheaper than a European bus ticket).
Minibus: The owner of the house has a minibus, which can be rented for tourist excursions in the area. On request, the driver takes you to Kakum National Park, exotic beach resorts, Elmina and Cape Coast castles, Monkey Forest Sanctory etc. Arrangements can be made when you arrive.
Other Things to Note
In case you wish to extend your stay or book for additional guests after you have checked in, you are very welcome to make such arrangement directly with Kwesi and pay directly to Kwesi.
Please be respectful to the house, when you leave the room, make sure to lock the doors and put off the fan and light.
And ofcause, clean up after using the shared spaces like kithchen, garden and living room.
Värdinnan och husvärden har jag absolut inga invändningar emot. Däremot så höll inte rummen den kvalitet som syns på bilden. Den enda natten vi sov där var mycket varm och påfrestande och iom att min fästmö lider av astma blev det överhuvudtaget ingen sömn för henne. Endast badrummet höll den förväntade kvaliteten. Rummen var dessutom väldigt spartanskt möblerade och priset därför alldeles för högt tom dyrare än det hus vi nu hyr i Cape Coast med gemensam swimmingpool.

Our stay in Greenhill was very nice. Kwesi and Joe are friendly host. The room was clean, quiet and cool. Kwesi showed us the nightlife of Cape Coast. The stay at Greenhill is very nice. Thanks for all.
We had an wonderful 3-day-stay at Kathrines house in Cape Coast. The house has a really nice flair and is spacy and comfortable (even more than the fotos allready show). We used the common kitchen much and could allways get help and advice from Kwesi, who was a wonderful host. It is a real good alternative to a hotelstay and preferable if you like to have space for living and cooking.
The accomodation turned out to not be exactly what we needed or wanted that night so we changed our mind and chose a different place to stay. But Kwesi was extremely helpful and kind, and communication with Kathrine has been very easy and friendly, so I can warmly recommend getting in touch with the two of them.
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay.
Kwesi (Kathrine's brother-in-law) was our kind and welcoming host. He had restaurants and beaches to recommend, all of which were great, and he even brought us out to listen to some great live music on a Friday night.
I highly recommend this place for a couple or group who would enjoy a quiet stay a short cab ride away from the center of Cape Coast.
Couldn't recommend this more. Very secure, excellent hospitality, friendly and comfortable setting only a short taxi ride from the centre of town. Extremely tranquil and great transport links to Accra and Takoradi, as well as Twifo Praso inland.
I will definitely be using this again,
Kathrine's hamlet in the Cape Coast region of Accra is private, serene, comfortable and inviting and very secure. The pictures are accurate though they can not capture the warm and welcoming feel of the house. Kwesi and Joe are the hosts and are very friendly and informative. They work close by so any emergency would be attended to ASAP though I did not have any. I initially booked the room for 3 days but could not leave the wonderful environment so I added 4 days. The bedroom was large with a huge bathroom and large closet space. The room had adequate lighting and the bonus was a solar reading lamp and a mosquito catching machine. Wonderful thoughtful touches! I also loved the linens on the bed which were so comfortable I slept through the monkey visitors.The electricity was on and the water flowed smoothly. The kitchen has all amenities you would need. I made some great meals with the addition of fresh lettuce, cabbage and tomatoes from Kwesi and Joe's organic backyard farm. (thank you again for yummy veggies) The house is located on a small hill with a provision store on the path. At the bottom of the hill you can easily access taxi or tro-tro to take you to market or castle or any (website hidden) was a fun city to explore with its small winding streets and the beaches along the coast are magnificent.
I was very impressed with Katherine's timely communication with me and Kwesi's punctuality in picking me up in a very nice large van.
I highly recommend this "FAB" house. I know I will definitely be revisiting this slice of paradise.
