We came by rental car with a japanese GPS (which we could not really operate). With a rough idea of the location and the picture of the building it did not take us long to find it (some narrow streets off the mainroad). The appartment was as described and fully met our expectations. Parking lot and keybox easy to find and no problems with getting into the appartment. We found everything we needed and the area is quiet. By car its a good location to easily reach Naha within 10-15 minutes. Without a car it takes a 30 minutes walk or about 600 yen to reach the next monorail station.

Reminded us of university days and having roomates! The bedroom has A.C. which is great. We were jet lagged, the unit is small and so we were worried about disturbing the tenants there. Having access to bath towels would have been nice.

I will not recommended and we will not come back there!
