We were 6 people traveling together. (4 Females and 2 Males, rent-a-car plan, 2 rooms for 2 nights) The owners are very friendly, patient and thoughtful. They gave a detailed introduction(dining info/scenic spots) to the neigbourhood and Yakushima, helped us reserve the morning/lunch bento for Jomon Sugi Trip on the next day, and even rearranged the room layout (4 females+2...

The owners of this seaside cottage are absolutely two of the nicest and most hospitable people I have EVER met anywhere in the world. They went so far out of their way to make sure that my April 2014 visit to Yakushima was the best that it could possibly be. I took the bus to their cottage from the port... More

The seaside cottage is just half minute walk next to the bus station, though the island is a lot more accessible if you rent a car. The cottage is 2 mins bus ride from Toroki waterfall, 10 mins bus ride from JR hotel Hotspring, 15 ride from Yadomari Onsen. To go to the shiratani-unsuikyo and yakusugi land, you will have... More

We went to Yakushima with almost no Japanese skills but had no problems as the owners were lovely and patient with us. The cottage was well prepared and the fresh flowers every day was a lovely touch.

La pareja que regenta las casitas son increibles, atentos, educados y muy serviciales. Nos recibieron con un coctel y un zumo y se sentaron con nosotros para darnos informacion de la isla. Al llegar de las excursiones la mujer nos traia un zumo y algo de picar. Agradable entorno. Relax absoluto. Casa limpia. La decoran con flores de su jardin... More

They were always ready and willing to help us with any questions we had. Great resources provided with all the information you would need to make the most of... More

We spent 3 nights here during a trip in late June, and had a great experience at Mori no Fairy. The owners are so kind, and went out of their way to provide information, maps, etc. in a mixture of English and Japanese. Very comfortable and cozy room with a great view of the ocean from the back deck. The... More

The owners helped us make reservations and plan out our 10 day stay at yakushima. Our flight was cancelled due to rain and the owners took us back in right away! They even gave us an extra hour for check out so we could sleep in after a very long day! I would definitely recommend this wonderful hotel to anyone... More

We really enjoyed our time in Yakushima, getting to rent a car and see some nature (must go on mountain hikes and run ins with deer and monkeys!). The cottage was so well kept and the hosts very sweet and welcoming. Getting to have the delicious breakfast on the deck looking out on the ocean was such a nice contrast... More
