We stayed at Nike Guest House, owned by Chief Nike Davies-Okundaye, Nigeria’s internationally known and renowned female designer and artist. The Guest House offers an oasis of tranquility in its beautiful garden, where sculptures live side by side with a 70 year old turtoise couple.
The interior of the house and rooms are filled with paintings and works of art. A mere three hours after leaving this small paradise we were back to the hustle and bustle of Lagos.
