Arrived at 11pm at night, the night man Kassim carried my bags in and the owner and his wife were there to greet me.
No one bothers you and you can relax.
I enjoyed my stay at apartment 2. I arrived at 4 in the morning and Hans and his wife where there to greet me.
I will be back in November and hope to be able to stay again.
Great hosts, great location , everything I need in an apartment. Hopefully it will be available when I go back.
I travelled alone as I was attending a djembe drumming course. Firstly, ask Hans to send a taxi for you, rather than haggle at the airport. On arrival at Banjul, it is best to ask a porter to carry your luggage for you. Give them a £1 coin and they will get you through customs faster. The apartment is in same building as Freddys 777 restaurant, behind Coconut Residence. The compound has 2 separate apartments and you get your own key to the main gate. The apartments may look basic compared to European standards, but they are actually very good. I had A/C, TV, kitchenette, etc. Hans was kind enough to fill my fridge with complimentary cold drinks on arrival. Everything in the apartment worked, including the hot shower. When the electricity goes off, the solar kicks in and you always have light and water. Outside is a small local shop where I got milk, coffee etc. Freddy's is also a great restaurant. All in all, a great apartment. Hans is very helpful; I didn't see him during most of my stay as everything worked wonderfully. I loved the privacy and quietness. My friend, Papa, was able to visit regularly without being hassled by security etc. You will love this place. Just 10 minutes walk to the Strip.
Good place to stay for couple or with one kid, u use own gate, nobody disturb u, but is mistake on map-its not The Rock Garden but just behind Bar 777.
