It's simple room, but tidy! Even though simple, but still have wifi, let u Connect to the world! The most attractive me is their meals, excellent !

They served meals and that was about it; everything else was pretty much self-serve. The room was basic, just big enough to fit 2 people, definitely too small for 3 guests, and there was nothing besides a toilet and a sink, not even hot water. There was no service, basically laying our bedding over tatami and keeping the room clean... More

We enjoyed our 3-night stay here at Manmaru. The guest house is running by a family of four.The room is not big but clean. The mini Kaiseki style dinner and breakfast are excellent. It is only 150 steps away from beach. My wife and I walked to beach every morning before breakfast to enjoy the sunrise and quietness of the... More

Manmaru is a charming guest house, with pretty garden (with hammock) and sea views. Staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke quite good English. The rooms were adequate and towels, soaps, etc were provided. The bath house was lovely. There is an area attached to the main building with kettle, showers, laundry,etc although we didn't find it straight away.... More

Hi, thanks for having us in your guesthouse! Really love the view there! A pity we didn't get to walk the 180 steps to the seaside to see the sea. The service was awesome, the owners did whatever they could to help us in anyway and that included calling the rental car for us, checking the bus schedules and even... More

Lovely location. Simple rooms nice to listen to the sound of the waves as you sleep. Almost like camping cabins in the layout and facilities but spacious enough. Maybe a little expensive for what you get eg no towels etc. Very friendly and helpful with arrangements including arranging the hire car via email with us which was difficult for us... More
