Wonderful place To stay
The guesthouse is a beautiful traditional house, I felt like I was in a period drama, It was magical. The owner, Tomo-san is the nicest person ever, he was really kind To us and helped us a lot. The breakfast was both beautifully presentd and really delicious as well, never eaten such Taiyaki before. We had a trully wonderful stay, I strongly recommend Voneten guesthouse if You visit Oshima Island.

Live in a fairy-tale Japanese house
The owner of the house was incredibly helpful and hosptiable from the very beginning, even organizing a rental car and making dinner reservations for me. The house itself is a picture-book Japanese house with tatami mats, sliding doors, futons, house shrine, etc. in top condition and combined with modern tech sound system and Apple TV. Plus, there is a lighthouse on a hill not 10 minutes from the house where you can watch the stars, island and ocean from on clear nights. I felt perfectly at home and would highly recommend this both for lone travellers as well as groups.

Beautiful and serene.
The owner was incredibly helpful and made delicious breakfast Taiyaki. I wish we could have stayed longer.

best host ever
Tomo is the best host you could possibly wish for. I cheekily asked if he would pick me up from the port, he not only agreed but drove me all around the island showing me the sights. He even took me with his family to the best sushi bar in japan! The guest house is Japanese style and beautiful. Home cooked breakfast was divine featuring his famous fish pancakes. Cannot recommend this place enough! !
