I am a Swedish American businessman. I fell in love with Dakar when I first visited, about 5 years ago. When I got the rare opportunity to buy prime land in Ngor I decided to build a home where I can retire in the future. Meanwhile I will rent it and I will spend time with my friends and family whenever we like to be in West Africa, for leisure or for business.
'Residence d' Ange' is an international gentleman's home in Dakar.
Here I can enjoy lazy days on my own, reading on my 4th floor sun terrace, working out in my own private gym, taking long walks on the beach in the morning and the evening, having fresh croissants and fruit for breakfast and fresh seafood for lunch and dinner. I can also live my professional life in my home office with WIFI internet and international cable TV.
Here I can invite my business friends to fly in direct from Europe and the US for private talks. When they want to entertain there is a wide selection of fine dining and night spots only minutes away from my house.
Here I can invite my hunting and explorer friends to have a base between their expeditions to various historical, wild life and nature sites; inland or on the ocean. Airport and harbor, only minutes away.
Here I can house my social friends for fun days, cocktail parties and dinners at home or going out.
My children and grand children already loves it, since they can roam around in the big house and I can still have my privacy.... we can venture out to the beaches during the day, enjoy the facilities at the near by international hotels (chauffeured in my Mercedes, 7 passengers, station wagon) and have any kind of food for dinner, including home cooked by the chef or catered to the house.
And at last the very best: Dakar is a people friendly, beautiful part of Africa with endless opportunities. Sunny 25-30C with a constant breeze from the Atlantic Ocean.....

Residence d'Ange is a uniquely relaxing place in, the otherwise very busy city of Dakar, for international life style in close proximity to African traditional life.
We took environment very much in consideration during construction. We used appliances that fulfill the highest US environmental standard 2012, solar heated warm water and low energy light bulbs. We air conditioned only the 2 living rooms and the master suite (fans and the refreshing breeze from the ocean will take care of the rest). And we installed the latest/cleanest version of generator, military grade, for reliability.
European, US, Senegalese management.
Staff available 24 h (3-4 during day and 2 during night).
Car service, chef and catering available.
If you consider staying in Dakar in comfort and style, Residence d'Ange is the place.....
