About Us

Come and discover the charm and authenticity of our establishment...

The hotel is ideally located in the middle of a 6 km beach in a very quiet place where you can be lulled by the singing of birds and the soothing sound of the waves.

The Hotel offers 6 exclusive king-size bedrooms and 3 double single bedrooms with private decks, ocean views, TV with cd player, a large private pool with a well-stocked bar, ocean views, and a private beach. The endless, fine white sand beach is about 150 metres (600 feet) by foot. The beautiful Atlantic ocean is generally warm and calm.

The main house sits under an impressive grass roof structure that covers the lobby, restaurant, the outdoor dining area and business office (with free 4 g wifi connection). The large ocean view terrace around the long pool offers ample room for sunbathing and relaxing.

Our hotel is located in the village of Batokunku – a small village by the Atlantic coast, about a fifteen-minute drive south of the touristic center with many restaurants, bars and shopping opportunities. The capital of Banjul is approx. 35 km (21 miles) away and the international airport about 30 km (19 miles). Our hotel offers free and individual transport to and from the airport.

The hotel opened its doors on November 1st, 2013.


The White Horse Residence features six rooms in bungalows situated in the lush manicured gardens, one private bedroom in the main house with pool views and a separate house with two bedrooms and ocean views. Each exclusive room has direct ocean views, features king size beds with private bathrooms and European appliances, private decks, ocean views, a CD/DVD player and tv, minibar and a safe. Satellite TV (incl. BBC and ARD) is available in the main house. The rooms are serviced daily. All rooms are equipped with fans, air conditioners are not useful in this area as the nights are cool.

Restaurant and Bar

The Restaurant offers delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. It is beautifully set above the guest house’s pool and has stunning ocean views – best enjoyed at sunset.

The cook and his staff prepare a wonderful selection of fresh local dishes – a mix of both European and local specialties that change daily – for “local” prices. We will do our best to accommodate individual requests.

Swimming Pool, Gardens and Massages

The swimming pool is ideally situated in the center of the estate with a panoramic view of the sea and the vegetation. The sunset over the sea is right in front of the pool, it’s an everyday sight. The bar and the restaurant are located around the swimming pool. Sundeck, umbrellas and towels are at your disposal. The landscaped garden with sea view is also very pleasant with our coconut trees, lemon trees, mango trees and solom trees…

The Gambia

The Gambia, officially the Republic of The Gambia, is a country in Western Africa that is almost entirely surrounded by Senegall with the exception of its western coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It is the smallest country within mainland Africa. The Gambia is situated on both sides of the lower reaches of the Gambia River, the nation's namesake, which flows through the centre of The Gambia and empties into the Atlantic Ocean. It has an area of 10,689 square kilometres (4,127 sq mi) with a population of 1,857,181 as of the April 2013 census. Banjul is the Gambian capital and the largest cities are Serekunda and Brikama.

The Gambia shares historical roots with many other West African nations in the slave trade, which was the key factor in the placing and keeping of a colony on the Gambia River, first by the Portuguese, during which era it was known as A Gâmbia. Later, on 25 May 1765, The Gambia was made a part of the British Empire when the government formally assumed control, establishing the Province of Senegambia. In 1965, The Gambia gained independence under the leadership of Dawda Jawara, who ruled until Yahya Jammeh seized power in a bloodless 1994 coup. Adama Barrow became The Gambia's third president in January 2017, after defeating Jammeh in the December 2016 elections.] Jammeh initially accepted the results, then refused to accept them, which triggered a constitutional crisis and military intervention by the Economic Community of West African States, resulting in his exile.

The Gambia's economy is dominated by farming, fishing and, especially, tourism.

Key features

Our Boutique Hotel is for Sale in The Gambia, West Africa.

A five bedroom, five bath luxury villa, the exceptionally private and lush Estate overlooks one of West Africa’s most amazing beaches.

Located in the most sought after coastal development area of The Gambia, the property features five buildings, a grand hall with tall vaulted ceilings, a large kitchen, a three-car garage/carport, lush tropical gardens and a private saltwater pool surrounded by expansive ocean-view deck.

The distinctly private lot of 17.000 sqm (4.3 acres) sits well above sea level, bordering a protected nature reserve and deserted beach.

The property's tropical gardens hold a number of beautiful mango and coconut trees, all kinds of beautiful flowers as well as beautifully groomed lawns that measure a total of 6.000 sqm (1.5 acres).

The grounds are surrounded by a 2 metre (6.7 ft) brick wall.

The property and buildings were designed and constructed by the owners from Germany -a designer and an engineer.

Construction took 2 years and was completed in 2004.

The estate has been kept in immaculate condition.

The main house of 250 sqm (2,700 sq ft) features two large master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a grand hall with 7.5 m (25ft) vaulted ceilings, an open fireplace and a large deck overlooking the pool, an office/library, a fully equipped kitchen, utility room and a guest bathroom.

The residence is fully furnished with European appliances, porcelain amenities as well as locally made furniture of high standard.

Solid mahogany timber was used extensively in the building and furniture construction.

The buildings' typical African design grass roofs are reinforced with a second layer of corrugated steel panels to create a balanced climate throughout the building.

The estate's construction standards are truly unmatched in the country.

The guest house is tucked away from the main house, situated in the beautiful gardens.

It measures 80sqm (860 sqft) and contains two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms of design equal to the main house.

The manager's house is approx. 30 m (93 ft) off the north side from the main house. The 95 sqm (1000 sq ft) contain one living room with an open kitchen and one bedroom with en-suite bathroom.
