BUSUA

Busua Bliss: a sustainable home for creatives. To reload and play.

Busua Bliss is probably one of Matt’s wildest projects. It's a stilt house, (hand)made out of wood, at a 5 minute walk from the village Busua, Ghana. During the construction of this creative retreat, Matt put sustainability as priority to stay in tune with the beautiful surroundings. The home aims to have a low impact on nature, so energy comes from the sun. Water comes from rain. 

 

The home can be rented entirely or by floor. On every floor you’ll find a queen size bed. Additional beds are possible. 

The minimum period to rent is a week, but be assured that you’ll want to stay longer. 

The garden is an oasis of about 2000 square meters. And with a bit of luck, the pineapples and passion fruits can be tasted during your stay.

 

Upon your arrival, Danny will walk you through. On the bottom floor of the house you feel literally like you are bathing in the green. 

Top floor has a canopy view. The panoramic views over the green and the frontal ocean and village view from the terrace, will make you stay for ever.

 

Bookings are open to anyone who wants to reload or create. Whether that be music, writing, visual art, theater, surfing or chilling… this creative retreat is your place to be.

See you soonest.

Why Busua?

Through his work for KAPOW, Matt helped manage the music career of Kwame MULZz: an artist, producer and social worker from Ghana, living in Ghent, Belgium. Always hungry for new experiences, Matt didn’t hesitate when he got invited to visit Kwame’s homeland Ghana. To promote his music, but also to get to know his family. At some point Kwame told Matt there is a surf village called Busua. The perfect place to reload and play. Naturally, he had to go and check it out.

 

The culture, nature, surf, food and above all: the people of Busua, inspired Matt to start maybe his most epic project so far. After creating all kinds of playgrounds across the world, he thought it was time to build one for himself. With the intention of creating a home for his future, he met up with Tarra Architect’s office from Ghent, Belgium and a team of local craftsmen to start working on the blueprints. 

 

The concept slowly got its shape and ‘Busua Bliss’ was born. Using only natural materials and pure manpower, Matt tries to stay in tune with the beautiful surroundings of Busua. 

 

However, this wouldn’t be a Mistah Matt project if he didn’t want to involve creative talents. 

 

Although the house is intentionally built for Matt to maybe go live there one day, he first wants to share the experience with fellow creatives.
