What a great place to stay! Max replied promptly to the email inquiry which made booking very easy. He collected us from the train station and even drove us down to an excellent local restaurant because it was raining.
The rooms were lovely with comfortable futons on traditional tatami and use of the other areas of the house as well. After visiting the island, we shopped in the local supermarket and made good use of the kitchen for dinner - a very pleasant change after many consecutive nights in restaurants.
Max's breakfasts have to be the absolute highlight. As most other reviewers have observed they are second to none!
Max is very knowledgeable about the area and shares his insights willingly. Great conversation, excellent food and a very welcoming environment. We highly recommend this property.
