Built four years ago on a hillside in the Palmlands Estate development of Sekondi, Paradise Guesthouse offers visitors unparalleled views of the Atlantic and Sekondi Harbour, the historic sixteenth-century Fort William, and the surrounding verdant countryside. Its unique, elevated position amid towering eucalyptus and palm trees makes for an ornithologist's dream.

The five bedroom house is centred within an expansive garden that includes a wide variety of tropical flowers and plant life. These grounds are maintained year-round to ensure that their splendour is showcased through every season. On a personal note (and I consider myself well travelled) the view from the porch is simply the most beautiful view in the world. Kick back on the oversized chairs sipping Star Beer or fresh coconut juice and watching butterflies pollinate before an African sunset!

An enourmous kitchen with modern amenities, two refridgerators and a deep freezer (and adjoining clothes washer and dryer) enable guests to self-cater. A very large living room is equipped with a TV, DVD player, and CD stereo, as well as a sofa and armchairs, and two dining areas. There is an even a complete bar with counter for evening entertainment. Facilities consist of two bathrooms (each with hot shower) in the house, as well as an external cottage that includes two bathrooms, and finally an outdoor bamboo shower in the garden.

Of particular significance are the generator (in case of occasional power-cuts) and built-in water reservoir. Two on-site staff ensure a pleasant, care-free stay.
