This would be a great place if Touru-san took care of some very important details: bugs, mold, and security. The house itself is very special, and the location is quaint and beautiful, but make sure you have a car since it's far away from any restaurants, grocery stores or most points of interest. It feels like staying in a Japanese grandma's house (in a good way), with adorable tatami rooms, shoji doors, and the sugar cane "music" nearby. BUT within a few moments of walking in the house I already had some mite bites on my leg; we later saw lots of other venomous bugs who made our stay uncomfortable. Moreover, some of those bug "friends" came back with us to Naha and we now, for the first time, have a mite infestation in our apartment. Also, while staying in the house, we suddenly developed terrible nose/throat congestion, and there was a big visible patch of mold on the ceiling which we attribute that to. (Every time we went out of the house we felt fine.) When we arrived at Touru's house, we met his aunt, who just told us to leave the house doors unlocked (we weren't given a key), so we felt a bit uncomfortable every time we were out leaving our laptops and other valuable items inside. This seems like a very easy thing to resolve, and I don't understand why we weren't given a key to lock the front door. The nice points of the house are that the kitchen is very well-equipped, so we could cook a delicious dinner. The rooms were spacious and comfortable and there were towels and futons prepared for us. The setting was so beautiful and relaxed. A breathtaking beach with crystal blue water and colorful fish was really close by (about a 7-10 minute drive). We had no contact with Touru-san (who apparently now lives in Nagoya) during our stay, nor his aunt after the first meeting, so I can't comment one way or the other on his/her demeanor as hosts. If Touru-san works on the aforementioned things, it will be a lovely place to stay. Ganbatte.
