AMAZING!!! I cannot recommend this place enough. This family is so kind, so welcoming, so helpful, so lovely...
We did not have a rental car (which is fine for a few nights, but if we had stayed longer it would have been nice to have our own vehicle to explore the island, in fact, we plan on returning for a longer time with a car so that we can see all this beautiful island has to offer). Since we were without transportation, they offered to pick us up from the airport, and on the way home we stopped at a grocery store so that we could get snacks/wine/sake.
We spent one of our days at the beach near the house and were literally the only people there the entire day. Absolute paradise. On another day, Masato drove us to his favorite snorkel spot, which was one of the most fantastic reefs I've ever seen.
Each morning we were greeted with an outstanding breakfast. Masato is an excellent cook, and the food he makes is presented in the most delightful way. We opted for dinner on one of the 3 nights of our stay, and it was fabulous.
The wooden house is gorgeous and expertly crafted, fitted with modern touches and chic design elements.
We can't wait to return, I only hope we can get a reservation, because once word gets out about how wonderful the experience is here, everyone will want to come visit!
