Retreat wabi-sabi is expanding! We have added Coya Cottage to our accommodation options in the very popular Kisami area of Shimoda. Coya means “small house” but it’s big enough for families and larger groups who prefer a bit more privacy. Coya Cottage is a Japanese style cottage that was built over 40 years ago. We have revamped and refreshed the entire building inside and out but worked hard to retain it’s very quaint Showa Style. There are 2 tatami rooms so couples or kids can have their own rooms. There is a large dining kitchen with seating for 5 plus a very cute retro baby chair in case you have a little one. We have managed to save the original tama-ishi retro tiling in the bathroom. The cottage has a Japanese style engawa, a small deck where you can laze around on zabuton cushion or have a freshly brewed morning coffee. There is parking for 2 cars right next to the building. Coya Cottage rental house is in the lush green valley called Kisane, behind Kisami Ohama Beach, less than 5 minute walk from the sea. We are on a private road so there is no through traffic or road noise. Listening to an orchestra of crickets is sure to calm any restless sleeper. This vacation home has everything you need in the kitchen along with complimentary coffee and tea, organic toiletries in the bathroom, as well as fresh linen, towels, yukata (Japanese cotton robes), original maps with personalized recommendations. Rental surfboards, bicycles, snorkels, body-boards, and so much more! We hope you will come and check out our latest creative space. Check out our website to book direct!
