“Extremly friendly hosts, oasis, second family, great accomodation”

We arrived with my wife to Hose Siriboe on April 22nd and planned to stay there for 14 weeks. Due to some circumstances we stayed there for 4 weeks. And we are most grateful and very happy to have had the chance to stay in House Siriboe.

First contact was very friendly. On the day of our arrival, Birgit and John picked us up on the airport. Next morning a delicious breakfast was served on the top veranda with a nice cool breeze in our hair :)

We stayed at House Siriboe with a baby. Birgit was always around to help us in case we needed anything. She provided a sim card for the telephone and a taxi driver who was at our service during the whole time of our stay which was extremely helpful. She also took us to the beach and to the shopping centre nearby. She was very polite and discrete. In case we needed privacy no one disturbed us. Her husband John is a very positive man, full of energy and humour. Also her helpers Patience and Bright are two very nice people, always happy and smiling. All in all we felt like we came to our family they showed extraordinary hospitality.

Otherwise the property is huge, surrounded by a high wall. When you step inside the property you feel like you stepped into an oasis in the middle of Africa :) The apartment we stayed in was huge, with 3 bedrooms a kitchen, two bathrooms and a dining room. We cooked mostly by ourselves. Birgit served us lunch when we needed it. Needles to say it was delicious. We had some problems with lights out, but in the evening time the generator was always on. Internet was stable and fast. No problems using Skype.

Although it was hot as Africa should be, the position of the house is on the top of the hill and in the evening with a fan on, you can sleep without any problems. No AC needed.

We liked everything about our stay in Accra with such nice hosts and would recommend it to anyone, especially families. You really feel at home there.

John and Birgit are wonderful host. They made our first visit to Ghana spectacular. Their home beautiful and welcoming. Everything was very clean even though we were there during harmattan. My sister and I stayed for one month. My sister came down with Malaria and Birgit and Bright were so very helpful, get us to the hospital, and calling in favors from the Doctor. We had several meal prepared by our host and they were great. Besides the electricity and internet going up and down (not the fault of our host) the stay was perfect. The generator was on when the electricity was down but they could not do anything about the internet. Taxi stand was a few steps away and the trotro to the mall cost less than $2.00 round trip. I don't believe I could find better accommodations in all of Ghana. It felt like home. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport too.

“Good value: quiet and comfortable”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

When it comes to accomodation, I look for three things: a quiet place in a good location that isn't too expensive. The Holiday House Siriboe is quiet and very comfortable for the price in Accra. The internet was fast and reasonable. We opted to make our own meals; the apartment had everything we needed. There is a Shoprite supermarket not too far away, and the nearby shops have everything that you might need day to day. I now understand the comments about the road. We were fortunate to find taxis into town and back. It took a bit longer, but if you stay in central Accra, you are going to pay more than double, you're not going to have as much space, and you'll still need to spend money on taxis to take you around. Most of all, Birgit and John are the best hosts. If you know Ghanaians and Germans, you know that both are renowned for their hospitality. Just imagine when they join forces!

“Quiet stay, good facilities and close to beaches”

person found this review helpful

I stayed at Birgit and John's holiday home for one week in November. The house is located in a very quiet area on the top of a hill, far from the chaos of downtown Accra. As we were busy during the day in the city, the quiet surrounding and the large green garden was the perfect place to relax at night. Not only the apartment itself was great - very nicely furnished and access to internet - but so were Birgit and John. They are fantastic hosts who will make your stay at their place even more pleasant. Birgit was always available if we needed any help, such as with arranging transport, and her food - breakfast and dinner - was the best we had in Ghana. There are nice beaches close to Mc Carthy Hill and the recently opened shopping mall close to the house is a good place to have a nice coffee. I will definitely recommend it to anyone. The only downsides are the road to the house, which is in horrible condition, and the lack of restaurants/bars in the area.

“Perfect place to get in touch with Ghana”

In February 2014 it was the first time I visited Ghana. My room was big, bright and very clean and the kitchen as well. A beautiful garden and a roof-deck with an awesome panorama invited to relax. Every morning I was surprised by Birgit´s very tasty, fresh and diversified breakfast which included everything from Ghanaian fruits over pancakes to scrambled eggs. Moreover I had some Ghanaian delicacies for dinner. Furthermore family Siriboe answered every single of my questions. And a plenty of questions rise up if you visit Africa as a person who is just familiar with the western world. The taxi station next to the house is perfect to reach every destination in town and the beach shortly. Taking everything into account the stay at house Siriboe made my holiday the most pleasant and impressive holiday I have ever had and there is no doubt that I will come back again.

I enjoyed my stay at the apartment. The people were really nice, internet and wifi were working and fast. The apartment is close to the center of accra, taxi's always in front.

I also enjoyed the hospitality and care we got from the Manager and the owners of the apartment. My stay in Ghana was fun. I can say Me Ko Ghana!!!

Our guest Ebuka made a good review of his stay in our house, everything was positive. Unfortunately , he used the adjective "awesome", describing the holidays. It is a contradiction and it does not reflect the review he has given.
