La Passione is an old house which we have refurbished in style with loving care. It has been brought back to life using simple and natural materials: wood window sills, parquet flooring, tatami, beautiful fabrics from Okinawa and mainland Japan. Sleeps 8/10 (beds and futons). Stairs only. Free high speed WIFI. We have two free parking spaces. 10 mins walk to Kokusai-dori and 15 min Kenchomae monorail station. Check-in by appointment. No TV

The space

The building has 2 floors (European counting, 3 US counting). The rooms are on the 1 st and 2nd floor (European counting or 2nd and 3rd floor US counting). The ground floor has an Italian and European feel.

On the first floor the two rooms both have an en-suite bathrooms. The rooms have western beds and the materials and colors used give a distinctive Asian and Japanese touch.

The second floor has two tatami rooms, one Ryukyu and the other Japanese tatami, with 2 futons each. Guests staying on this floor share the bathroom and toilet. The roof terrace is a place to relax.

Each room has a small balcony, a minibar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, and a hair dryer. The bathrooms have showers with a large head. As in the Japanese fashion we kindly ask guests to remove their shoes: we do provide room slippers.

Last but not least there is a roof garden to enjoy the early evening breeze with a view of the rooftops of the neighbourhood.

The ground floor area is arranged as a cafe'. We serve Italian food Monday to Fridays. During the week'ends the ground floor turns into a dining room and lounge with carpets and one sopha.

We also have futons for 2 extra guests.

Fast WIFI is accessible throughout the building.

The house is perfect. It is tidy, cozy and convenient. Francesca is so nice. She brings lots of food and fruits for us and we didn't finish them before we leave. We do enjoy her house very much.

Francesca is very responsive in regards of answering my question. Since she has emergency to go back to home town, her husband Hiroto-san was the one who greet us when we first arrive. He is a very nice guy who wait for us on the road since we rent a van and don't know the way to his house. The house looks fantastic as it's a 4 storys house, G/F the kitchen and living room, 1/F two bed rooms with two single beds in each room and 2/F two bed rooms with tatami. The root top is great for enjoying the sky with full of stars at night. Hiroto was so nice that he baked some organic bread for us as breakfast for the second day. I will definitely recommend this house to my friends who will visit Okinawa. Thank you very much for your hospitality! :)

Francesca is a very nice host, she tried her best to accommodate our requests and was very helpful since the our booking and until the end of our trip. We are honoured to be the first guests in the house. The house is of very convenient location, within short walking distance to the shopping area. It is also very clean and tidy. It has four bedrooms plus 3 toilets which is very convenient for our family of 8. Francesca also cooked us Italian style breakfast in the morning, which was very nice to have. The ground level of the house is with table and chair only setting, similar to a restaurant, there is no living room with TV, which maybe a concern for some families, who would like to relax on the couch after the end of the day to enjoy family time. We really enjoyed our time in Naha, and had a very pleasant first experience with this airbnb booking.

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.
