The neighbourhood is a quite residential area. It's a short drive from the buzzing parts of Accra such as East Legon and Airport Residential. It's also moments from the tranquil Aburi mountains.
The property is easily accessible with the local taxi station just across the road.
Guests are welcome to smoke but not indoors.
You are more than welcome to have guests visit you at the property but your guests cannot stay overnight (past 23:00 hours) if you and guests exceed 5 people (except with our agreement).
Maa Abena is very welcoming and easy to get on with.
The location offers good access to almost anywhere one would want to go in Accra.
I enjoyed my stay and would consider staying at the home of delight on my next trip.
Home of Delight.
Apartment looked pretty much how it does in the photos. Bathrooms are a little tight but both rooms have one so fair enough.
The apartment is secure and you will feel safe.
Maa Abena was every bit as warm and welcoming as I thought she would be. Anything at all that you need just ask and she will endeavour to help you.
The local people that Maa Abena knows are very friendly and helpful. Good people.
If you take your time to look around locally, Pantang is actually quite a nice place, lots of development, restaurants, hotels etc..
Despite confirming and reconfirming on more than 2 occasions that a working generator would be available to us over the duration of our stay. On 2 separate occasions we had 'lights out' and on both times we were told they had to call somebody to get it all up and running. On the second occurance I was pretty cheesed off, so after a fair wait she did get it working. But I am disappointed that she didn't think to hold true to her word and fix it prior to our arrival. It was late, we had been to the beach, sand everywhere and we all had to sit in the dark in the heat waiting for light to take a shower..
On one occasion in the middle of the night, whilst sleeping, our bed made a creaking noise and then fell apart. The carpenter was called to fix it
the next morning and it was implied that we should pay for it!!! We did not.
The apartment unfortunately is NOT where google maps says it is. In Fact it is at least an hour out of central Accra, taxi fare is between 30-50GH to town or you could take 2/3 trotros (local minibus like buses). As we didn't have a car it made the cost increase very much for us.
My last comment/s is not so much a Con as an observation but the apartment didn't have any multisurface cleaner for the bathrooms or kitchen and 1 thin towel per 2 people, lastly not even handsoap in the guest toilet much less any others.
I hope you find this useful.
Maa Abena's hospitality was so impressive. While being for 8days, we had one bed making and laundry service.
Home of Delight was just as it's name. it little far from town from but very nice environment, the rooms are spacious and very nice kitchen. Maa Abena is a very sociable host.
About the Host, Maa Abena & Leon Aryee
I returned to Ghana in 1994 after living and working in London for over a decade. Being back in the Ghanaian sun is lovely and the people are too. The food, the beaches, the culture, the bars, restaurants are all simply amazing.
If this is your first or second time visiting Ghana, we are sure to make your visit a relaxed and memorable one. Likewise, if you're Ghanaian and returning to Ghana on holiday or business.
Our guest house is family run and managed by my son and I. I live in a separate property on site and have staff at hand to tend to your needs.
