You are invited to stay in our newly furnished 3 bedroom condo.
Located in the centre of this beautiful Island this condo is a perfect place to experience the Okinawa lifestyle and explore all the attractions Okinawa has to offer.
It is a perfect place to get away from the long cold winters in the Northern hemisphere.
It is located 15 miles from the airport and car rental is advised.
The condo is fully furnished and has an easy access with private elevator.
The design is comfortable American
It sleeps 2-6 people and is available for rentals longterm rentals as well .
We are a well travelled family and always interested in putting design ideas into our properties from 5 star hotel experiences.
My wife is from the area so we have a lot of support from our family to maintain our properties from a far distance
Marcel and Yoko de Reus purchased this condo in 2014
As we only use our property for when we visit family it is available for other like minded guests to enjoy Okinawan lifestyle in a family friendly atmosphere.
Stunning views over the ocean ,within an Okinawan harbour village.
It is located 5 minutes from the largest shopping Mall in Okinawa .
It has a private elevator for easy access.
Ample parking for 2-3 cars
We were impressed by the space the condo offered. We stayed in very tight condo in Tokyo before arrival and it was a nice surprise.
It also had two full bathrooms. We thought it only had one according to the VRBO information.
The condo is located in Awase near fishing port and fish market. We enjoyed local fresh fish.
The owner also introduced us to a local car rental company which has a best price in Okinawa.
Be sure to ask him about the car rental when booking the condo. Having a car in Okinawa is necessary to get around.
Overall we could enjoy one week vacation in Okinawa and we would choose this condo again.
Good place for a large family.
This clean and well maintained property is situated on the fifth floor of six in a block of apartments located in a typical Awase neighbourhood which, as independent travelers, my wife and I really appreciated as we like to blend in with, and live as, locals ourselves. It also comes with its own free car parking space which was a bonus as we'd hired a car to get around. There are some good restaurants nearby and we enjoyed the local Shabu-Shabu with the non English speaking hosts (just be prepared to gesture plenty and accept the help in 'cooking' they provide!). There was also a Korean restaurant (with its surprises) and a fish market restaurant serving half a fresh lobster set for 3000 yen, or £16.50 per person which was delicious, all within walking distance of the condo. Without doubt the mainstay of Okinawan cuisine is Soba and we found no bad versions, only good, better and best! We felt the best one was served at the restaurant by the large flea-market on the outskirts of Ginoza.
For chicken 'to die for' go to the man who serves grilled chicken skewers on the site of the large 24 hour recycle shop next to the Okinawa Athletics Park. He is not open everyday and only cooks on a night time we found, but honestly what that man can do with charcoal and chicken defies belief, I swear you will not taste better! (three chicken skewers, either salt or teriyaki with rice bowl and nori, 500 yen, £2.75, honestly!).
For things to do, there are too many to list here and of course what you will want to do will depend on the sort of holiday you enjoy and how much you want to spend. Okinawa is steeped in history, tradition, culture, music but its biggest and best feature are the people themselves, words cannot describe how peaceable, polite, friendly and generous they are, that and Okinawa's beauty are reasons why you should go and experience it for yourself.
This was our second visit to Okinawa and the second time we have stayed in Marcel's properties, selfishly, we would like to keep him and his properties our little secret but this would be unfair to Marcel. We would definitely consider Marcel's property first on another visit to Okinawa, and other locations, due to the accuracy of his descriptions, the ease of booking with him, his honesty and his rapid personal response to any queries we had. I've already recommended Marcel's lettings to a colleague at work, enough said! M&J UK
