With a great location just off Spur Road and fast, reliable internet, our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. The room is light and has a double bed, AC, wardrobe, and full length mirror. The shower has hot running water. We're a 15 minute walk from Lumley Beach, supermarkets, and good restaurants, and our place has been security reviewed. You’ll be accompanied at home by friendly Sierra Leonean staff, who will be happy to help you learn Krio and any errands.
“I booked Amanda’s place because I was completely new to Freetown and traveling by myself (and also AC!!!). This turned out to be a great decision, because not only was the room great, so was the company! I was conducting preliminary research so would spend most of the day hustling around town to my interviews, and come back to the house to cold water, air conditioning in the room I stayed in, dinner leftovers, and fun and interesting conversation with the several students and resident ecologist who stay in the house, who were nice enough to include me in several beach excursions. The location was perfect, central enough that I could get places without too much effort, but removed from the chaos of the main roads. The housekeeper did a super nice job with laundry. I also had a couple snafus (I forgot malaria prophylactics and had a visa issue), which the household members and Amanda’s contacts helped me sort out (such a relief when you don’t know a place). I would highly recommend this stay, and have not seen any others comparable for the value in Freetown!”
My place is close to the beach. You’ll love it because it is a colonial style open plan house. It is light, bright and airy, with a large outdoor veranda. It has running water, constant electricity and internet. We have a modern kitchen and the room comes with an ensuite bathroom. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers.
Private ensuite room in peaceful, natural light filled three bedroom flat. Fantastic location off Signal Hill Road. *You must have a profile photo of yourself. No incognito mode here.
“The first and probably most amazing feature of Haja’s place is the incredible view. I didn’t see many better my whole time in Freetown. Once you drag yourself away from the verandah it is possible to enjoy the enormous interior that has been decorated to give a cosy feel despite the space, the restaurant quality kitchen and the comfy bed. Haja wasn’t in the country at the time I visited so unfortunately we didn’t get to meet but she was very responsive in her communications. The staff in the compound were also very helpful and kind. I would absolutely recommend Haja’s place (in fact I already did to a colleague!). An additional note; Freetown is very hilly and the streets are often not paved and can be muddy. So while you are close to Wilkinson and Spur roads there is quite a lot of hill in between of you wanted to walk. But this is completely worth it for the fantastic view and quiet sanctuary this apartment provides. There is also not transport right out the front of the compound, you would have to walk a little to the junction to find something usually, but this is no problem as you can utilise the local ride sharing app or even better get the number of a reliable keke driver and they will come right to your door. Enjoy your stay in Freetown at Haja’s place.”
