控えめに言っても、最高のステーションです。 高台から見渡す唐津湾のオーシャンビュー、ホストの方の手作りの思わず息を飲むイルミネーション、ハンモック、そしてブランコ... どれを取っても最高の非日常体験でした。 日中は、歩いて坂道を下ると美しいブーゲンビリアのハウスを愉しむこともできます。 高台に位置する閑静な完全プライベート空間でありながら、車で5分圏内に、唐津の海の幸が揃った「おさかな村」や、何でも取り揃えられるミスターマックスやその他スーパーもあり、買い物回りも非常に便利でした。 誰かに教えたいけど、教えたくないような気持ちになる秘密基地的な空感。必ずまた訪れたい最高のステーションでした。 心優しく、素敵な場所を使わせていただいたホスト様に頃から感謝です。
