Do you ever wish that you owned a vacation home on an island, complete with beautiful beaches and mountains… Well, FamiliA, a B&B, cafe and bar is here to fulfill your wishes. At first glance, FamiliA, just a three minute walk from the beach, looks like an ordinary house. Once inside however, there’s a spacious cafe bar, guest rooms that were inspired by trips around the world, and a terrace where you can see the heavenly stars of Kozushima. Ideal for those looking to chill out, stay at FamiliA on your next island trip.
The guest rooms – where the world meets charming Kozushima
Each room at FamiliA has a distinct theme. From Morocco to Cuba, the interior design was inspired by memories of the owner’s travels across the world, as well as the natural beauty of Kozushima. Japan is included in the mix, and whichever room you end up with it’s sure to be a delight.
The guest rooms vary in size, and depending, can accommodate up to four people. There’s a total of six rooms available, and all are located on the second floor.
Relax with a cup of carefully curated coffee in the living room that doubles as cafe space
Breakfast is served on the ground floor, at the spacious living room that doubles as a cafe and bar. Included in the breakfast are cereals, breads, fruits, yogurt, fresh juices and milk.
Outside of breakfast hours, the space transforms into a cafe and bar. There’s a large selection of coffee to choose from, including the owner’s own special blend.
From 5pm, meals and alcohol are served. At Kozushima, there are only so many places open until 11pm, and very few restaurants and bars are open during low season. At the bar in FamiliA however, you can talk, drink and dine till late at night all year round.
Morning Buffet: 7am-9am
Restaurant and Bar: 5pm-11pm (Food: 6pm-9pm)
Gazing up at the stars from the terrace
The terrace at FamiliA, equipped with cozy chairs perfect for lounging, is perfect for gazing up at the starry night skies of Kozushima. Some days you can even see the Milky Way. But there’s more to see than just the stars – the moon is a beauty to look at from here too. It’s such a luxury to be able to relax and take in magical views of the sky without ever leaving your accommodation.
Well designed bathroom
The bathroom is thoughtfully designed with usability in mind. It has a wide sink area, spacious bathing area and a bathtub too – convenient for those with small children, or cold days when you want a nice warm bath.
In addition, FamiliA provides ample supplies of free amenities. Towels (bath towels, face towels), toothbrush, and hair dryer are provided.
There are two ports in Kozushima. Kozushima Port and Takowan bay. FamiliA is just five minutes by car and about eight minutes on foot from Kozushima port. From Takowan Bay, it’s about 10 minutes by car. While the latter is farther from town, FamiliA offers free pickup services so you needn’t worry if your ferry arrives at Takowan Bay.
For those that don’t rent a car or bicycle, there’s a bus stop near the accommodation, so getting around the island for sightseeing is easy. The closest stop to FamiliA is called “Can Do-mae”. From there, it’s about seven minutes on foot to get to the accommodation. That said, there are only about four buses running per day, so it’s best to keep an eye on the schedule.
