Hans Cottage is a holiday resort close to Kakum where a lot of birders base themselves to visit the national park. The actual resort is excellent for wildlife too- mainly opportunist species but there's also species like Orange Weaver, Giant Kingfisher and Black Crake that can be tricky to see elsewhere. 

Also the garden and permaculture type habitats within this nature friendly resort are great for butterflies.
