It was lovely staying in Francesca's place. The house is nicely renovated (good mixture of Okinawa and western interior,) very clean and comfortable. Francesca is a friendly, cheerful and caring host who also runs a little Italian lunch place for local people using a part of the house during weekdays (too bad we could not taste it since we stayed in the weekend.) We flew into Naha from Miyakojima island, stayed there for just one night and flew out to the next destination very next day this time but we would love to stay in her place longer next time when we visit Naha!! Highly recommended!

Francesca´s place offered me what I need it. A nice place near the airport to relax, work on until my next plane. The cultural fusion between tatamis and Mediterranean make it a special place. It gives you the opportunity of experience a new culture, holding the good things of the European / Mediterranean culture (Coffee, Good oil, hospitality). 5 stars place, like those that makes you continue using AirBnb.

The room is quite far away from the monorail station, yet the taxi fare is affordable. The room is clean and well-arranged. It was a pleasant experience, particularly the breakfast is tasty (esp. apple pie!!). We were happy to meet other travelers in La Passione, so we recommend the hostel to those who want to meet friends from other countries.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I am please you enjoyed meeting other people. It is what I hoped guests would do :) We are improving the website with a map indicating bus stops as well. However the taxi is the best and the most convenient way to get tot he house from the airport.

Lively and enthusiast, I love being with people and learning from them. I have travelled extensively and exploring places is one of my favourite pastimes. I read and watch movies with great pleasure, alternating serious topics to delightful escapades. I like my food, though unfortuantely I am allergic to gluten and dairy.
