        Tropical modernist house w/ most GENEROUS host”

        The host 有さん(Ari san), truly kind. The environment is perfectly relaxed and feels like a distant uncle's house. Location very good to explore south end of Okinawa.

        有さん is among, if not the most generous and kind host I've encountered in 10 years traveling in Asia. In his own words, "if you are happy, I'm happy", something you would feel for your loved one, came true the next few days i spent there. Actually traveling alone, with no plan, Ari san effortlessly made me feel welcomed and i greatly enjoyed Okinawa because of him. The house has everything you will need. Just enjoy your time in Okinawa, then head back "home" and relax with Ari and the other guests. The views from the house at sunset are "super amazing" indeed. Great location to scout for southern Okinawan wonder beaches. Just remember to use plenty of sunscreen... Ouch.. I highly recommend going there. See for yourself. You will have gained a friend by the end of it. Keeping company to our host are two furry companions, so relaxed, they will accept your caress like they were Ari's. すばらしかった!

        Great Hospitality, Great Sea View, Great Stay”

        Not far from Itoman Bus terminal, Cute Cats, Great Sea View

        The place is nowhere near train station so Ari san had managed to pick us up from airport (w/h only little expenses), introduced us the most delicious Okinawa Ramen, drove us to Okinawa World, and made us the fresh vegetable side dish. The place is perfect for those who love to enjoy great sea view, rent the car (since the place is not in downtown so it'll be hard to catch taxi or take trains), love cats (he has 2 most lovely cats in the world)and looking for relaxing Japanese style room in countryside area.

My room had sea view which is an excellent place to look at the sunset. There is a rooftop where I chatted and looked at the stars with the host.
