About Us

Savannah Beach Guesthouse is an ecotourism destination.

aboutus_picIn 2002, I made my first trip to Ghana to teach etching classes at The Cross Cultural Collaborative. I fell in love with the ocean, sandy beaches, relaxed life style, friendliness of the Ghanaians, and the natural traditional, building materials. A year later in 2004, I bought land and started building.

Our grounds have abundant native plants, watered with gray water from the sinks and showers. The thatch roofs are beautiful and also cool. Walls are adobe. The floors are wood or hand made tiles from the coastal city of Winneba. Bamboo is used extensively for furniture, gates, railings, even walls. Bedspreads are African hand woven. Our fare is vegetarian with both Ghanaian and Western dishes.

We believe in ecotourism. We recycle as much as possible. The bread seller comes by with whole wheat bread every morning at 7:30, and the vegetable seller most afternoons. When we to go to the market we bring our own cloth bags. We work to save the endangered sea turtles that come to our beaches to lay their eggs.

Savannah Beach Guesthouse is quiet and shaded. Our aim is to provide creature comforts as well local color of African traditions. Culture drumming and dancing are available. The beach is for sunning, swimming, and watching the fishermen with their nets and hand carved and painted canoes.
