"Balmoral" is a unique multi leveled Spanish Style Villa set atop a hillside, with panoramic views of the Sagami Bay. The top floor, (which is on street level!) houses the huge high ceilings of the living room, is many leveled and also has the Dining room and kitchen.
The entry level has your guest room, (that consists of a double bed + two folding beds, if necessary). On the same floor is also the hosts private bedroom and study. A bathroom and another toilet, are located on the lower floor.
*Please note that the guest room is your only own room. There are 2 separate toilets. The Livingroom, Dining, Kitchen and Bathroom are for common use.

You are not allowed to cook!
I do not recommend my place to the guest who does not like dogs and/or has allergenic problems from dogs. If you stay for more than two nights I would rather you to explore/walk around Izu than just staying all day in the house.
Do not make noise and/or speak loudly in the house.
Please make sure that you are staying at someone's private house, Comon spaces such as living and dining rooms are closed at 11pm as well as private bath.
It would be great help if you could remove pillow cases and a bed sheet when you leave.
Please use the dining area for eating meals.
The kitchen and the washing machine are my private ones, but I am always happy to help, so please let me know if you need any help for those use.
Thanks for your cooperation!!

I was born and grew up in Tokyo. I bought the house, Balmoral, located in South Atami Green Hills in 2011. It was built in 1968. I am the fourth owner and named it "Balmoral" as I had lived in Sydney, Australia for a long time and often visited Balmoral Beach and loved it. E.T is my adorable companion and partner coming from Sydney in August 2014.
One of the past owners, a professional photographer extended the building by adding his photo studio (currently living room) and an outdoor swimming pool.
I really enjoy cooking and with the incredible panoramic views from the kitchen, you can experience every single season and change of mood. I never get tired of it.
Please come and escape from the hustle and bustle of your busy life and pamper yourself at Balmoral. Join me in celebrating the great nature here!
It is definitely worth staying at Balmoral. It has a unique atmosphere.
