What we like about this property

This seaside summer home unites the two distinct aesthetic elements of east and west and emphasizes the connection between the indoor and outdoor living spaces. We love the zen simplicity and the similarities to traditional American cottages. 

Description

Located just a few steps from the shore in the peaceful seaside town of Hayama, this unique beach home was designed by native architect Vincent Yueh whose primary inspiration is that the design should cultivate and emphasize the experience between people and the natural environment. Constructed primarily of wood and concrete, the site is comprised of two main buildings with an interesting fusion of traditional Japanese simplicity and elements of rustic barn structures. 

Anchored by interior courtyards that create and promote a continuous indoor outdoor flow, the house is spread over three levels and inter-connected by wooden decks that gives the sense of being onboard a boat.

The interiors are relaxing and casual and bring together the simplicity of Japanese design with natural materials and a neutral color palette as well as carefully selected furnishing and decor to enhance the design. The extensive use of full length folding doors makes seemless transitions to the exterior spaces with the kitchen and dining areas fully opening out to the courtyard. With three bedrooms and three baths the home is spacious and can sleep up to six. 

The stylish and elegant design achieves a sense of harmony and balance in a tranquil and relaxing escape. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, housekeeping, laundry facilities and parking.

AROUND

Located along the northern shores of Sagami Bay, in the Miura District, Hayama-Ishiki is a popular seaside resort town but remains a relatively peaceful and intimate destination. Just an hour’s drive from central Tokyo and half an hour from Yokohama city, the nearby coastal towns of Kamakura, Yokosuka, and Zushi are all within a short drive. The house is near to the Imperial Villa and the Shiosai Japanese Garden, as well as the Kanagawa Museum of Modern Art and just a short walk to Ishiki beach where Mt. Fuji can be observed on a clear day.

    We spent three nights at this lovely house over a long weekend and I wish we could have stayed a lot longer.

    The house is beautifully maintained, clean, spacious and has a calming feel about it. The house allowed for great family time as well as quiet areas if you felt you wanted a bit of time to yourself. Lilian and Vincent were extremely responsive to queries and offered helpful suggestions on things to see and do locally.

    The house is a perfect location to explore the surrounding area and was an easy drive from Tokyo. I would definitely choose to stay here again.

    “Open” is the key word. Open kitchen, open rooms, open space. With no barriers between inside and out, you can fully enjoy the sun, the weather and the seaside location.

    The property is fantastic, the owners are helpful with just the right amount of interaction, and Hayama has that slow, laid back vibe just like a beach town should. (Not to mention the gastronomic gems I’m going to keep to myself.)

    The Seaside House exceeded our expectations. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we extended our stay another night (thankfully there was availability). Lilian was extremely welcoming and made herself available to answer all of our questions and provided us with information about the beaches and other surroundings. The house itself was spotless, modern and packed with elements of surprise. It was well designed with many Scandinavian touches, so we felt right at home. We took full advantage of the indoor Japanese wooden tub, which was my favorite part. It was also nice to open the house up using the folding glass doors, to make the place feel as if there were no boundaries with nature. A truly stunning property!

    We had a fantastic time!
    Seaside House is a beautiful, quiet and very relaxing place. The house is an masterpiece of architecture, so well designed and very comfortable. Located in the best area with lots to do and explore. Many thanks to Lilian and Vincent for your hospitality. We will definitely return again!
