“Nice Area”

It was very easy to book this property. Emily was prompt, friendly and accommodating from the start. She was very nice to provide letters of recommendation for our visa applications. Overall, the property was beautiful and the neighborhood felt safe. There was a nice mixture of vacation homes and small vendors mixed together in a large estate. Food shopping is in walking distance and restaurants are just a short taxi ride away. I would recommend Safeway Coldroom near the police station. Approximately 6-8 cedi. The airport transfer was on time and the driver, Ata, helped us to get acquainted with our surroundings. The staff was very nice. Naomi and Ebeneezer were there to assist us whenever we needed something.
There were just a couple things that we were disappointed to find. First, don't expect to have regularly wifi. If you have to have wifi then you might consider another place. The wifi was pay as you go. It took three days to get it then it would only work sporadically. My sister is taking online classes and missed two major assignments. Next, the bathrooms are not what we expected. Just to be clear, the house is lovely, but we were turned off by the fact that the shower head in the master bathroom on the second floor was not attached to a base. Also, there was not shower curtain. We had to squat to bathe. In the second (shared) bathroom, the shower head was in good condition but the drain was slow. Also, the toilet seat had a stain that we were unable to remove with disinfectant. Last, the overall cleanliness of the second floor could have been a lot better. There were dust bunnies everywhere. Our beds did not have flat/top sheets. I requested another sheet and was given a fitted sheet to cover me while I slept. Also, we were expecting to be able to use the outdoor grill but it did not arrive until the day before we left.

TIPS: bring hangers, towels, sheet sets (full size) and toilet seat covers or disinfectant spray if you are using the second floor. Wifi only works on the entry level and was not reliable.

I would stay here again but next time I would come prepared.

“Nice Staff and Big Home”

I enjoyed my stay. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The only concern for me was the lack of air conditioning in the kitchen and living room areas. I have no real complaints. The owner was very pleasant and professional. Vivian, Andy, and the owner made my state comfortable. I hope to stay at Tilly's Villa in the near future.

Tillys Villa is in one word an excellent vacation rental. A home away from home. The staff was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed at all times. I highly recommend Tillys for your vacation lodging in Accra. We were extremely impressed with the services we received (WIFI /warm water / satellite TV/AC). There was more than enough room for our kids to play both inside and out in the yard. My kids (1 and 4 yrs.) had a blast having their breakfast outside every morning where after they played in the yard and climbed the trees. Excellent. Our next stay in Accra will again be at Tillys Villa..

“A diamond in the heart at Accra, Ghana!”
Reviewed 23 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We could not have chosen a better place to stay! The villa is huge with very comfortable and beautifully decorated bedrooms with bathrooms and balconies contained within! If you are American, you will be happy to know that Tilly's Villa has hot water, wireless Internet access, cooking facilities, and a huge front yard that is great for tanning, playing sports, or just chilling! The villa is gated (and not that it needs to be because the neighborhood is very safe, and the neighbors are very friendly and helpful with directions), the grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and the villa staff are very helpful and kind. I had a small birthday party while there, and my friends (who live in the Accra region) were absolutely astounded at the beauty of the villa). The owner, Emelia Larbi, was very helpful in booking the facility. She returns calls and emails, provides her personal cell phone number, and calls you while there to ensure everything is going smoothly. Tilly's is located in the heart of Accra, so there are a million things to do! We highly recommend Tilly's Villa, and will be staying there again when we return next year!
