New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2014 -- New Yorker Adrienne Cooke has always dreamt of opening a bed and breakfast in Ghana, West Africa. She has finally found the perfect spot for her dream --The Black Star Bed and Breakfast in Accra, Ghana, West Africa is a four bedroom home ready to become a quiet African retreat.
Cooke says she fell in love with the community on her frequent visits to Accra. Not only does she want to fulfill her dream of becoming a successful business she wants to create a Bed and Breakfast that supports local community. “The bed and breakfast will also help the local economy as I plan to use the service of several local small businesses and shop at the local markets for food,” says Cooke
In order to move forward with the next step of her dream, Cooke needs to fill the bed and breakfast with furniture, while also updating the plumbing and air conditioning. She is raising funding on indiegogo.com and will use monies raised to outfit the bed and breakfast with beds for each room, various furniture (side tables, etc.), four AC units (and installation labor) a refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven, a kitchen table and chairs, living room furniture, and dining room furniture and more.
She is asking for help to realize her dream but not without offering something in return to contributors who nake from eight to 70 dollar donations. Contributors will receive a variety of handmade jewelry or baskets from Africa depending on their donation choice. Ghana wood masks, Krobo Bead brackelets, Maasi bead bracelets and Ghana Bolga Baskets made by Fair Trade artisans are some of the perks available to contributors.
Conveniently located in a residential neighborhood, the house has four bedrooms with their own private bathrooms. There is a separate dining room. The guesthouse features a living room and garden available for guests to relax, read a book, watch television or meditate. Black Star Bed and Breakfast is within walking distance to Spintex Road, a 15 minute taxi ride to Ghana Mall and a 25 minute drive to Kotoka International airport.
