Adepayɛ na means "a good thing is hard to find".
It's a spacious private 1 bedroom apartment in Osu; about 100m off the Oxford Street.
Your only stop for clean, modern and affordable accommodation in an upbeat neighbourhood in Accra.
My guests have complete access to the rooms and the compound.
Interaction with Guests
My guest will have the place all to him/herself though I am ready to interact whenever needed.
- About 80m from the house is the new Oxford Street Mall that house several renowned shops.
- The Republic Bar and Grill ((website hidden)) is also very close by.
One cannot visit Ghana without experiencing the night-life of Osu.
I can arrange for pick up service on request.
There are taxis and mini buses (Trotro) all around town.
( I am happy to give a tip or two on using public transport.)
Other Things to Note
NO Generator please.
No smoking in the rooms.
Doris and Chris were spectacular hosts and extraordinarily patient and helpful with a couple urgent things I had to take care of upon arrival.
The house was a great place to stay and in a central location in Osu with easy access to anything you could need (Food, taxis, mall, stores, beach,...).
Looking forward to my next trip to Ghana!
Doris and Chris were so helpful and caring people.
They welcomed our late check-in (around 11pm due to our flight schedule…) and also late check-out was arranged which was really helpful. And when we leave, they gave us a lift to where we could get a taxi easily and even Chris negotiated the price with a taxi driver.
The apartment was cozy and comfortable which located very central of Osu and close to bars and restaurants. (The Republic Bar & Grill is cool). The wifi network works really fast!!
We experienced power cuts sometimes during our 4 nights stay, but we prepared for it, so it wasn’t a big issue for us.
Over all, we did enjoy our stay at Doris’s!
I stayed at Doris' apartment for 5 days. She communicated well with me and her husband welcomed me after arriving in Accra. The apartment is clean and perfectly located next to Oxford street, Accra's main shopping drag and host to a wide range of restaurants and nightlife. I did not experience any of the power outages described below and the internet was super fast. Doris was always available upon a phone call if I had any questions. It's a bit noisy around sometimes, especially the cock next door woke me up a few times in the early hours but still at the price given it's an absolute bargain and highly recommended.
Doris and Chris were very helpful. Their place is in a great location, in the middle of everything, and it was clean. They gave precise instructions on how to use the amenities (e.g., A/C, Wifi, water heater, etc...) and I was happy with my stay.
Chris and Doris are such wonderful hosts! I can't say enough about their efforts to make us feel welcome and at home. Even after just having their first baby a few days before our arrival (congratulations again!), Chris came by several times with extra towels and to help solve problems. They are very friendly and very helpful with everything. The apartment is fine - the location is excellent, in the heart of Osu and close to the best things in Accra. The bed is small and not very comfortable, but the futon is just fine. One has to be aware and prepared for frequent and lengthy power outages - there is no generator, so no power means no water or AC, sometimes for half the day. But if you come prepared it's a great place to stay!
We had a great a stay at Doris' place. The location is ideal in Osu, the apartment is comfortable and the internet is terrific! Doris was a great host, always available. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed our two week stay with Doris in Osu. The apartment was spacious, clean, and comfortable. It was nice to be able to cook and have plenty of space during our long visit. It was also great to be a short walk from the many restaurants and shops in Osu.
As other guests have noted you should be prepared for power outages that happen in Accra. Bring flashlights and a bit of patience.
I am from Ghana and live in Accra.
I love photography and travelling. I am a technology education advocate for girls and women in Africa.
Take the next flight to Ghana and let's Photowalk together.
See ya soon!
