You can also enjoy the ocean view from the living-dining room, kitchen (even when you are cooking) and bedrooms.
In the morning, you can wake up on the beds listening to birds chirping and looking down the park and the ocean, in the day time you can take a walk in a large, beautiful park (free) or ride a sight-seeing car or the park, and at clear night you can watch the star-lit sky and romantic town lights in a quiet atmosphere.
The apartment faces south so at full moon nights you can watch the moon rising above mountains and sets in the sea.

There are no supermarkets within a walking distance but we will take you to a supermarket on the day you arrive if you don't have a car.
A secret, local beach good for snorkeling is a 5-min walk if you take a short cut. (not recommendable for children or after dark)
Bise, one of the few places where the original scenery of Okinawa is still kept, is right next to Emerald Beach.
There are diving shops near our apartment and they will give you a ride to the shop.
Even though our place is convenient enough, if your purpose of traveling is shopping, eating out or having a night out, it is NOT for you. However, if you prefer a slow time walking along the seashore or watching the sunset in the park, our place is YOURS.
