  • Description


    We are Japanese.
    Our house is in Ibaraki prefecture.
    1 hour 30 minutes by car from Narita airport.
    It is an hour and a half drive from Tokyo Station.

    We are Nomad worker.

    Very private beachfront home! 100 square meter living room, 2 bedroom, incredible 180 degree view of ocean and amazing sunrises!! One of a kind!!
    The garden has a pool and BBQ area.
    The house is surrounded by fields.
    Vegetables such as sweet potatoes and radish are grown in the fields.
    It is very quiet because there is no other house around 1km.
    The morning wakes up with the sound of waves and the sound of birds.

    The owner's hobbies are DIY, fishing and tennis.
    This year, we are focusing on gardening.
    I am also very interested in interior design.
    The name of the partner is Mami.
    Mami is very bright and hard worker.
    Together with the owner, we help build the house.

    I have a question.

    -How do you want to spend in our house?

    -What do you like?

    -Do you have any questions or requests?

    I want to hear a lot of your opinions.

    Our house is a very relaxing place.
    We are very friendly and ready to welcome you like a family.

    We are happy if we can have a good time with laughter:)
