Stayed two nights here and loved it! Even though the weather was not the nicest on the first day, the location is just perfect for beach hopping on the island so we went from beach to beach in the rain. On the second day, we got up early in the morning to go surfing with fransesco! The spot he chose was splendid and he gave me a good introduction on surf basics. He is very helpful and kind and has a lot of tips on where to go eat & what to do. If you are planning a trip to okinawa, staying with him is probably the best choice you can make since you can easily discover both sides of the island from his place and if you are into surfing, it doesn't get any better than being driven to a beach, getting all the equipment and a surf instructor for the same price. Staying with him, you will basically have one level to yourselves which was also nice smile emoticon all in all, I really enjoyed my stay with Francesco and his wife on Okinawa! Thank you!
