We were looking for a romantic, private getaway on the water at a reasonable price on short notice. At Takahashi we got that and so much more. We were greeted by Elaine the owner, who made us feel like old friends. All your stress melts as soon as you walk through the gates - the gorgeous landscaping and incredible views are all yours, blocked off from the outside world by beautiful bamboo fences. We stayed in the Umi suite, which was perfect. All the details that Elaine managed to include were perfect. The Kimonos which we wore constantly and wanted to take home, the private hot tub with tiki lights for nighttime use, the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, rainwater shower head, custom handmade soaps, ipod dock, gas fireplace, exquisite sheets. There's more but those were the highlights for me.
We were sad to leave, and we will be returning for sure.
