We stayed in the 2-bedder room for 2 nights. The room is clean and has a balcony. Amenities such as shampoo, shower gel,hair blower, kettle, toothbrush and toothpaste, etc, are...

This place call themselves hotel but it is more like guesthouse. You stay at the owner's house upstairs and eat in the small restaurant downstairs. Only 2 rooms here, one western style and one Japanese style. Very comfortable like home. All amenities are like 4-stat hotels. Owner lady speaks good English. She will take care of you with breakfast. I...

Very nice guesthouse. Big room with all you need. A nice bathroom. The area is quiet. You need to have a car to go there and to visit the area. The best thing are the owners who are very nice and they will serve you an awesome breakfast.

Stay here if you possibly can, the room was lovely (we had the Japanese style room), our hosts were great and very helpful and kind, and the food was amazing. Cute dogs too. Good location close to the aquarium and the bus stop to Naha if you're not driving. Highly recommended!

If you wish to stay in a home away from home, this would be the perfect place. Right from the beginning when my fiance and I were welcomed by the lady of the house, we were warmly greeted and made to feel right at home. She is a chatty lady who gave us tips on places to visit around Okinawa...
