Unfortunately the little chicken…

Unfortunately the little chicken who fall out of the air was not roasted.
The goshawks who are circulating above the site, taking advantage of the hot wind climbing our hill, stole a young chicken somewhere.
But is was too heavy and he, or she, have to let it fall.
Of course the goshawk came after the chicken but our new little dog called Hill, chased the bird away. Before Hill could take care of it, Joseph, one of our gardenmen, safed the chicken and put it in the rabbiot-hutch, together with 5 beautiful rabbits, from which I am afraid that they will not have the eternal live.
Anyway, a dog, a chicken and 5 rabbits are the last acquisitions.
They are not avoiding the good progress we made with the total project.
Carpenters, painters, plumbers and tylers are finishing their jobs.
The pool is ready, just the water is missing, as well as the lounge and the restaurant with the bar.
Also the gardens fully growned. Beautiful to see how fast the palm- an other trees and the hedges of the Ficus Benjamin, are growing. Plenty of avogados, papayas, mangos etc
When we open in 6 mounth the guests can enjoy and relax in our well maintained gardens.
And of course our own house/studio was ready and the whole 4 weeks we have been in Ghana we could enjoy the benefits of an own house .
Everybody did and is doing a good job under the inspiring leadership of Emmanuell, who is going to be father in January.
Regards, Frenkel de Greeuw, Emmanuel Parker Wright, Fir Tiebout

Boa tarde, from a sunny…

Boa tarde, from a sunny and warm Portugal with pictures of my last trip to Ghana two weeks ago.
We are really satisfied about the progress of the project. Of course it can be faster, but all three of us want to give our creativity free. That means that sometimes things have to be changed or adapt. For the mirrors we made now a wooden frame on which the mirrors are fixed and behind the mirror, around the frame, there is LED lights coming. That means extra sockets etc.
Please look at the pictures and we hope that you are as enthousiastic as we are. Also the workers are very proud on their project.
Depending our liquidity we are going to buy now the beds, kitchen equipment, lightning, chairs and tables etc.
As it goes like we hope it must be possible to open at the end of this year.
We hope you enjoy the pictures.
With kindest regards,
Frenkel de Greeuw

City of Dreams

Ghana trip apil 2016

Goog morning .

Last week we returned  from Ghana. Enclosed are some pictures of the hotel. It certainly making progress with the tyler, plumber, painters, carpenters, electricians etc. The rainseason is starting now so we bought the last plants and trees we needed.
Because the planning is that before the next rainseason in oktober/november the hotel will be open.
During this trip our container from China arrived with shist tyles for the lounge, restaurant and terrace of the swimmingpoll. The same day the tyler started with the floor in the lounge, very nice. In the container were also the glass mosaiktyles for the swimmingpool and the complete swimmingpoolequipment.
The other great event was the wedding from Emmanuel, our friend and partner in Ghana with 500 guests. A lovelyday from which I will try to send some pictures as well.

Have a nice day, Fir and Frenkel

My trip to Ghana january 2016

Me mo wu aha, or good afternoon in Fanti (the local language)

Please find enclosed some pictures of the last developments. Although not everybody is coming when he said to come, but still we are satisfied about the progress.
The reception is almost ready, all the rooms have been painted, the bathrooms are ready.
For the restaurant and lounge we are waiting for the tyles which are on their way from China, as well as the glass-mozaik swimmingpooltyles.
Now we are looking for lightning, beds and furniture for the rooms. The wardrooms it the rooms will be open with place for a desk , hanging clothes, shelves, mirror, minibar and safingbox. Like more things , different from the usual wardrobes.
The people from the WIFI and satalit TV will start within 4 weeks.
Some of the pictures are from workers. One of the boys was so proud on his bike that I have to take a picture of him. Other pictures are of a wedding of one of our carpinters.
The project still is a challenge and we think we can open in september/oktober this year.
On the 10th of march we will go back, also because our friend and manager Emmanuel is going to marry on the 12 03.
Medassi (Thank you), Fir Tiebout

It is always exciting….

It is always exciting to go to our hotelproject in Elmina in Ghana. Not only to see the progress of the project but also for the decisions we have to made for the finishing. When you look at the enclosed pictures you can see that the structures of all the buildings are ready.
The four blocks with, each, four rooms are plastered inside and outside, like the lounge, the restaurant, the residence, storages, reception and segurity. And not to forget the large infinity swimmingpool with a separated childrenpool. The electricians put the finishing touches to the electricity, wifi, TV satellite, telephone for the rooms, exterior lightning etc

All these separated buildings are situated like a compound, all with seaview. Because the hotel is build on a hill from about 50 meters high , there is always a light brise and there are hardly any mosquitos. And that all by a avarage daily temperature of 28 degrees and the beach at 250 metres.

The building is running very well, all thanks to Emmanuel, our Ghanees partner. He speaks the language , literally and figuratively and knows how to deal and motivate the workers. There are no severe problems.

So we wnet home with a good feeling and hope to go back at the end of May.

Fir and Frenkel
