You truly feel like a member of the community when you stay at the Splash House. Dane and his family treat you like one of their own and are responsive to any need you have. And if you get out for a surf, you could not ask for a better or more welcoming group in the line-up (Also some serious talent). We stayed in the surf apartment which is practically on the beach. We really felt at peace listening to the waves breaking at night and having the sun rise up from the ocean to greet us in the morning. Also shout out to Brave Surf shop down the street. Great place to grab gear, apparel or just stop for a visit.

Rented this place for a day with a group of four friends to have a BBQ party. We showed up to the place and another couple was also staying there. Even though there was only one table and few BBQ facilities outside, we were told that the couple would also be doing a BBQ, which was not informed in advance. Also we were not allowed to use kitchen and fridge at all although we had tons of food.... Since we felt there were too many rules at this place, we recommend that you read the listing details thoroughly in advance. (The owner seemed like a nice person though)

Dane and his beautiful family have the perfect setup at Splash on Hebara Beach! Direct oceanfront where you can check the surf from bed just by opening your eyes. Super easy to get to Katsuura by train from Tokyo makes it an easy add-on to any traveling surfer or non-surfer. Dane's quiver is available for rent and has a board for everyone. The tonkatsu restaurant is to die for and is only a 2 minute walk away. Aqua Palace onsen, in Katsuura, is the perfect way to end the day. Surf can get epic here with multiple spots within view from the deck. A car isn't really necessary unless you want to do some more exploring. Just don't forget your international drivers license. If Splash is full, contact Dane for other options. Amazing time and so stoked on returning to Splash one day!!!

Dane User ProfileDane is a superhost.

Born and raised in the south of England in a little village called Cranleigh and coming from a family of 13 children. I moved to Japan more than 16 years ago. After living for many years in the mountains skiing and snowboarding i moved back to Tokyo more than 10 years ago. This is where i met my wonderful wife Madoka (Japanese) and we started our family (Our Boys Rusty 10 Ralph 7)
Our love for the the ocean has always been strong & being the owner of it was only natural we finally moved out to our dream home a quiet little place right on the beach.
Since then i have been lucky enough to become a Team rider for Laird Stand Up Paddle Boards, airSUP, Slide Fins.
The ocean really is my home now & the way i support my family turning our home into a B&B was a very natural thing to do as we always had friends staying with us or surfers popping in to say hi.
We pride ourselves on our Location, good food & Great Times
Traveling so much on surf trips and photo shoots you really get to meet so many amazing people see different cultures and eat so much great food. giving that same experience to our guests really is satisfying.
Similar to what we feel about surfing the sport we feel about many things we do in life. "What we learn to do today, we will try to do better tomorrow and perfect in the future"
Surfing not a sport but a lifestyle.
