The Gardenvilla Shirahama is an extremely lovely, clean and well-maintained property with awesome private open-air onsen facilities, stunning views over the sea and the kindest owners. Would definitely return.

We just spent two nights, in early March, at the Gardenvilla Shirahama in the Western/Japanese style room, which is spacious and in beautiful condition. The view from our room was stunning. The bathroom is on the smaller side, but we did not mind at all because the lovely outdoor onsen (which you can reserve to use only with your family)... More

Beautiful located hotel. The rooms with ocean view are very small and simple, but that doesn´t metter. The service is very personal. Good breakfast and fresh fish in the evening. Nice private outdoor onsen. I really could recommend this hotel to everybody who is looking for a cozy accommodation with private atmosphere and not for a 5* luxury hotel.

Had a great experience here. Stayed here for a family trip and was pleasantly surprised. The family that runs the place speaks English. The service was excellent and very personal. The ocean view rooms had some stellar views. I opted out of the breakfast, but family members that had it said it was amazing. The private bathhouse added to the... More

Our family of 3 had a great time at the Garden Villa Shirahama. As other reviewers have stated, the villa is quaint, cozy and in a beautiful location. We were there for the June super moon and the views of the moon from the outdoor private onsen were spectacular. The owners; a father and daughter were warm and friendly. They... More

My wife and I stayed here in the beginning of May as a short get away from Tokyo before the mad rush of Golden week. One of our staff is from Shimoda and recommended the villa not just for the hotel, but because the owners are really wonderful people. She was right. The villa in quaint and very "at home".... More

This place is beautiful and cozy. Love the onsen with sea view and relaxing lounge. The owner speaks very good English. The room price is not expensive. The lounge is equipped with free hot drink, small pool table, and board game.

We made a short stop at Gardenvilla Hotel before heading to Tokyo. The staff were incredibly warm and friendly and even offered to pick us up and take us back to the train station during our stay. They speak excellent English and were really helpful. The Location of this hotel is perfect, overlooking the ocean and only a 5 minute... More

We stayed in several places whilst touring Japan on Honeymoon this year, and have to say that Garden Villa hotel really stood out as the most relaxing, memorable accommodation. The owners were very helpful and went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. Most of the staff speak good English. It is set above a small beach... More
