More than just a Guesthouse
In December 2020 Moon&Star guesthouse organised Nick and Iris’ Ghana tour. This as a bonus when they booked the 5-day Ashanti tour with us. Iris and Nick travelled with local transportation, they used tro tro, coaches, tuc tuc’s and an occasional taxi or Uber. Team Moon&Star made their itinerary, booked their accommodations, arranged a few tourguides and provided an E-book that contained all the details about their 4-week trip. They made a video that gives a nice impression of their amazing journey in Ghana.
Moon&Star could easily be a NGO in Ghana and the guesthouse would be a part of that Non profit organisation. But Asabere, Moon&Star’s co owner and me decided to opt against that. Many of our guest are asking me why, since we are volunteering ourselves, we support local projects and we honor many sponsor requests.
In our opinion one doesn’T HAVE TO START AN NGO TO BE A SOCIALLY CONSCIOUS BUSINESS.
“It’s a beautiful place, very cosy and gorgeous food.
A perfect place to relax, explore and near a village you’ll love.”
“Moon and star guesthouse is a beautiful place in Ghana. The staff and the owner Patricia are great. The accomodation is clean and it is a joy to sit outside. The service is very good.
Patries knows a lot of Ghana and all its beautiful places. She helps with planning trips and a lot more.
Our stay was great, thanks!”
