The Different Types of Vacation Homes in Accra

In Ghana, tourism is an important contributor to the country’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  It is fourth after gold, cocoa and foreign remittances. Tourism’s significant contribution can be attributed to the stable political climate, good weather conditions throughout the year and the natural tourist attractions which attract both foreign and local tourists.

Popular tourist sites in Accra include the beaches – Labadi, Kokrobite, Teshie – monumental structures, and architecture, making Ghana an exciting destination.

The tourism sector has reached its peak because of the important role and contribution being played by the real estate sector. Here are the different homes available in Accra for tourists and people on vacation.

Guest Houses

Guest houses are an affordable type of lodging, similar to hotels, which provide bed and breakfast to their occupants. Depending on the amount of money a vacationer wishes to spend on accommodation, there are guest houses in Accra they can afford. Guest houses are built in different styles and can be found in almost all neighbourhoods in the city. They can be built as apartments, cottages, “single room self-contained”, or a compound house.

Guest houses provide different facilities and services depending on the amount a tourist is willing to spend. The price is also linked to the location of these houses. Popular Ghanaian Guest Houses include SSNIT Guest House, and Villa Victoria in Accra.

Serviced Apartments

A number of real estate companies in Accra provide accommodation for people taking vacations or looking to use these properties for a short period of time. These apartments have beds, kitchens, and washrooms ready-to-be-used. Serviced apartments can be found everywhere in the capital, especially in the upmarket neighbourhoods of Cantonments, Spintex and Osu in Accra.

Serviced Villas

Like the apartments, serviced villas are also ready-to-be-occupied structures, but offer more space than apartments. They come with beds and other furniture, kitchens and even utensils. There are a number of these being managed by the real estate companies in Accra. Popular serviced houses and villas are found in East Legon, Adjiringanor and Spintex.

When selecting vacation homes, look out for the location of these properties, which type of amenities and services are being provided, and the price for the space.
