Legassi Gardens Apartments and Vegan cafe is in Pokuase, which is a lively part of Accra, with lots of local shopping, bars and 'hangouts' called 'spots', and convenient for getting around town.

We have views of the Kwabenya hills, and benefit from the local 'forest reserve' at Pokuase, giving us cooler than central Accra temperatures, reasonable rain fall, and at least the feeling that we have 'cleaner' air!

Ideal for the adventurous tourist, intern, volunteer or avid business person looking to tap into the heartbeat of local life. Pokuase is an area where you can just jump on a trotro and blend in. We are around 10 minutes from St Johns, Achimota, close to the shopping and bars of Kwabenya, around ACP area, 20 minutes from Accra Mall or the new West Hills Mall, by car.

We are uniquely placed just on the outskirts of Accra, on a hill just off the Achimota (N6) motorway in a quiet hillside residential area, just up from the lively retail shopping zones in and around Pokuase. We are also accessible from either ACP or Pokuase Junction, and enjoy fast road links to different parts of central Accra.

Accommodation

The apartments are set in over 1 acre of trees, flowers and some pretty weeds...

Our apartments are completely self-contained with 2 reasonable sized bedrooms, set in our garden compound, with table tennis, an on-site Convenience Store and Vegan Cafe.

Each apartment accommodates up to four persons, with big discounts for long stay students or volunteers. There is a special discount rate for single occupants, and they can enjoy the luxury of having a spare bedroom for use as an office/study/ or recording studio (as in the case of at least one previous guest).

Payments are made only monthly in advance. This arrangement is based on trust, and has worked well so far. This suits working guests, students on a monthly allowance, or retired guests on a pension.

The apartments are regularly refurbished (usually after each long stay occupant), tiled throughout, and tastefully furnished with local furniture-fabrics-art work.

The kitchen has a table top cooker, fridge and cooking pots and utensils

The sitting room has seating for at least 4 persons, with dining facilities, television and fans

The bedrooms have either a double bed, single beds or bunk beds, wardrobe and drawers, with fan

The bathroom has a shower, toilet and face basin

The patio overlooks the garden and cafe, with seating and small table, and a shoe rack; and there is a private door for entrance into 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.

We are also just over a 'flower wall' and see to your maintenance needs, help you make arrangements as requested, answer any pressing questions, or are available for a chat from time to time.

Prices

The rent (always negotiable) is inclusive of your bills:

-electricity, water, gas

-cleaning, washing, gardening, security (although 'tipping' is standard)

-full maintenance services

-off street parking

-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

Tours and special services

On request, we help to organize tours for guests, either with our local escort or with registered tour guides, knowledgeable about the history, culture and spiritual life of the country. From our location you can take day tours to many different areas, including Aburi, Koforidua, Nsawam, Tema, Cape Coast and more. We also arrange volunteer packages for interested guests with local charities and organisations.

Legassi Gardens gives you a base from which it is easy to move around, if you want to travel and see the sites of Ghana or even the sub-region. We can offer special 'low occupancy' rates for travelers who intend to spend only a few nights per week at the apartment.

For business travelers, we can provide additional services that make your stay with us effective and convenient for business purposes, including arranging a car, secretarial services, an interpreter, and general business pointers. Not to mention, an early breakfast.

Contact us to negotiate a deal.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This was a gem of a place! Beautifully decorated, very very clean, tasteful. Was a relief to get back here after day sightseeing. And found it easy to get around, walked down to junction then jumped on one of the buses that seemed to come every few minutes.

The food was amazing, so fresh and healthy. Am not a vegetarian but loved the food anyway. The staff were great! Very efficient, reliable, kept the place very clean, gardens were lovely.

Meant to stay for one night, but stayed for over a week! When I come back to complete my research I will definitely stay here again, they offered me a good discount. Just had such a brilliant time. Thanks!

I stayed in Legassi Gardens for two months and it was fantastic. The place is owned by Nana Kwame Gayle, who is a very personable gentlemen. He would come by to check on me if he hadn't seen me in a few days. When I became ill, he came by with tea and remedies that absolutely made me feel 100% better. Madame Gayle was also very friendly, her willingness to engage made me feel very welcome.

The staff at the Gardens are incredible. I spent more time with Agyiengo, the guide, then with anybody else during my first three weeks. He was very patient with me and had wonderful suggestions about places to go. I would not have been able to learn how to navigate the public transport without Agyiengo. He even accompanied me to a reggae concert on the beach. Agyiengo was a great friend and an incredible resource, I will miss him very much.

The cooks, Lawson and Moses, are very reliable and open to modifications to the meals. Jozef is very thorough and punctual about cleaning the room and doing laundry.

The place is safe, I left my computer out in the living room all day, often without even locking my door. The bed is very comfortable and the staff changes the sheets often. My accommodations had a large living room, with two bed rooms and a spacious bathroom, all of which were cleaned twice weekly.

The grounds are beautiful. Coming back from the city to the serenity of the hotel was always a relief. I wholeheartedly recommend Legassi Gardens for anybody looking for a quiet place to stay just outside of Accra for any period of time.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I hate to give a poor review to nice people, but in the end, I can't give great ratings for "effort". When I booked this place, its location was grossly misrepresented. On many booking sites it was pinned in the Accra city center. This could never be so far from the truth. Had I known just how far out it was, i'd have never booked. Between the normal public transport woes and road construction, it literally took me 3 hours to make it to the city center. The only way I would rank this a good location is if you do not plan on doing anything inside Accra, even then though, the ongoing construction on the major roads surrounding the area don't even make it good for a jumping-off point now or anytime in the near future. I realize road construction is not the fault of the guest house. Misrepresentation and lack of offering solutions is. The rooms themselves are sufficient and clean. The food is excellent and reasonable. The people are very nice. I found it hugely overpriced for what it was though and it's location and with similar places in the region.
