“Awesome place!”
Reviewed 7 September 2010

I am definitely go back there again and again! Izu shimoda has become my 3rd home and staying Tabi Tabi is feel like returning back to home. Angela & Yasu are very cool and lovely owners. Tabi-Tabi is very clean. Easy to go to the beach, they have bicycles that can be borrowed, walking distance to Convenience's stores, surf/body boarding shop's ( Real Surf) and great restaurant called Surf Cafe. Awesome food and very reasonable prices. Try their Brownies!!!!!

Tabi-Tabi aslo have chilled area at the back for BBQs or sleeping in the Hammocks for naps after one day playing in the beautiful white beaches closed by.

Thanks, Fizz from Machida! By the way, the brownie place is called "South Cafe" (not surf cafe but it definitely has a surfer's vibe). Their banana bread with ice-cream is also yum!

Angela and Yasu are the very cool owner of this charming freshly opened guest house "surf style". They both speak english and in Japan that is definitively a plus and they are helpful and cool. The japanese style rooms are clean and with air conditioning, the kitchen for the guests is handy. They provide with free Wifi and computer and bicycles! Izu peninsula is a fantastic land full of charm with amazing scenery and beaches, as well as famous Onsens. Very close from the town of Shimoda, it is easy to get to by bus or taxi. The japanese surf style of the area is fab. Definitively a region to discover to relax on super safe japanese beaches.
