I hope you had a wonderful weekend! As promised, here is an official tour of our new Okinawan rental (as seen through my iPhone). The front door is to the left. All of the houses here have cabinets in the foyer for your shoes. The cabinets and trim on walls are a really light mint. The wall color is a warm white which can look a little pink with the sunlight. This color combination is consistent throughout the house. Coming from the foyer, the staircase is on your right and the main living/dining/kitchen is straight ahead as one big, open space. The yard out back is one of the reason’s we chose this house. We needed a good spot for the dog.
When you walk upstairs, a long, bright hallway greets you. The first door on the left is a second bath. The next door is the master bedroom. The door on the right is our daughter’s’ room and the one at the end of the hall is our son’s.
The upstair’s bath looks just like the downstair’s minus the washer and dryer.Our daughter’s room is small with a window and two large closets. Our son is enjoying the walk out balcony this time (our daughter had one in the last house). The master bedroom is huge! We have never had a large bedroom or closet so we are super excited. My office might end up in there. The unit hanging on the wall is an ac, heater, and dehumidifier. We have one of those in each room. I hear they will be a life savor at preventing mold and staying cool in the hot, hot, hot summers.
So far the only thing we miss is a dishwasher (although our 9 yr old is a pretty good replacement) and westernized curtain rods/curtains. All of the windows and sliding doors have the pinch-pleated rods with little plastic hooks. However, I’m enjoying shopping for new curtains. lol
The upside is our bright beautiful home with ocean views located a few blocks from the beach. We are also still in the city so there are many restaurants and shops near by.
That’s it for today!
I will be sharing house updates, rental tips, and Island life soon.
