A passport is a basic right that every citizen is entitled to. Any Ghanaian citizen can go through the passport…
We all dream of having that cozy and exotic home which reminds us of the majestic places strewn around the world – a home that would get jaws dropping, eyes glued and hearts freezing for a little moment. One with a perfect location, caught between the traffic of a busy street and the imposing colonial edifice built by the Danes and affectionately called the Osu Castle, the former seat of government. Yes, your guess is right, this home is right here in Accra, Ghana!
The property, which captivates the hearts of many in and around Osu (including The Culture Trip who named it the best boutique hotel in Accra), is located near the Christianborg Hotel, behind Koala Shopping Center. The landscape is just amazing, to say the least, with flowers and shrubs that project the serenity and beauty of nature, while the building itself has undergone some renovations to modernize it.
Thinking of lounging in the sun while enjoying the view of nature? This is exactly what this home offers, with a pool situated in the middle of the compound to cool you off. Approaching the entrance of the hall are two trumpet-like objects hanging on the walls. On the right side of the entrance door is an antique grandfather’s clock, believed to have emanated during the colonial days. On the whole, the exterior of this home is reminiscent of colonial/post-independence times.
The home contains a single room, a hall, kitchen and bathroom. The hall is a perfect indoor relaxation centre, with leather sofa to massage your body and DSTV to entertain you with. Thinking of where to execute your work? A spacious lampstand is situated next to the window, with a bright lamp on top. The kitchen is fitted with every gadget you will need for cooking, plus enough storage space to keep your kitchenware.
A cozy bed sits in the middle of the bedroom, facing a chest of drawers and wardrobe to store all your valuable belongings.
This is the brainchild of Olma Colonial Suite, a real estate developer that is looking at providing luxurious homes for Ghanaians at home, the diaspora and all foreign nationals. General Manager of Olma Colonial Suite, Hamoude Quartey, offered more insight into their services.
“Olma is not only dedicated at providing luxurious homes for our cherished customers, we are also interested in their well-being. We know that a majority of our customers are very busy people and cannot afford to take time out to do shopping. As such, we provide breakfast, grocery deliveries and information to eateries and popular hangouts within this vicinity.”
Osu is home to a variety of popular hangouts and a growing number of apartments and houses. The Oxford Street, the busiest street in West Africa, serves mostly commercial purposes, with a variety of services on offer. Areas around Oxford Street contain colonial-built homes, indigenous ones by the Ga community and others constructed by real estate developers and private individuals.
