3泊4日で利用させて頂きました。 到着し、とても感じの良いご主人様に色々案内をして頂きました 初日はバーベキューをしたくお聞きした所、丁寧にお店の情報はやり方等を教わり片付けは一切しなくて良いと言われ申し訳なく思いながらもそのままにさせて頂きました。 バルコニーからの砂浜や石垣市内、竹富島の景色は今までのオーシャンビューのホテルよりはるかに良いです。 屋上では星空がとても綺麗に見えて流星も見ることが出来ました。 3日目はシュノーケリングをしたくお聞きした所 全てを無料で貸して頂きビーチ情報等も細かく教えて頂きました。 その通りの事をしたら全てが最高でした。 お部屋はとても清潔で全て揃っていて何もかもが驚きと感動でした 出掛けないでずっと家に居たいと思える場所で ハッキリ言って帰りたくなくなります。 次はもっと滞在したいと思います。 ありがとうございました。

おもてなしが、とても素晴らしかったです。 オーナーさんが、バーベキューの火をおこして下さったので、とても助かりました。使用した後も、コンロの後始末まで、して下さいました。 オーシャンフロントなので、海の眺めは最高だし、自分達だけで屋上も使えるので、夜は満天の星空を堪能しました。 部屋にCDや、オセロ、サッカーゲームなどもあり、楽しめました。 石垣島に来たら、こちらをぜひ、おすすめします。

1泊の利用でしたが、到着時間の連絡もしていなかったのにも関わらず 車の音ででしょうか、車を駐車する時に、オーナー様のお迎えがあった事には驚きでした。また、建物の利用時の説明も丁寧にしていただきました。 建物室内は広々と私ら2人で泊まるには贅沢な環境で、いい思い出となり本当に良かったです。ありがとうございました。

設備は必要なもの全て揃ってて何一つ不自由しません。部屋も清潔でとてもリラックスできました。 特にテラスと屋上バルコニーはオーシャンビューでただただ素晴らしい!!夜は屋上で星をみながら語りました。 オーナーさんも話しやすく良い方で好印象。 本当にわたしの人生の中で特別なひとときになりました。また利用します。
