Thank you, Don, for bringing a little bit of Martha's Vineyard and the C19th sailing days to the magical mysteries of Yap in the Western Pacific. So comfortable, peaceful and relaxing. I can't wait to return.

This is a little cabin that has been expanded into the best little hotel we've seen anywhere in a long time. Every room has a waterfront balcony and it's next door to the Manta Ray Bay Hotel/Yap Divers and the MWUM Ship Restaurant, which has the best food on the island. Right at the center of the goings on in...

This lovely, very small Inn (6 rooms) is directly on the water, with a small deck overlooking unobstructed views of the harbor. The rooms are spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with handcrafted woodwork and thoughtful built-in features similar to a ship's cabin. The overall atmosphere is similar to an antique mansion, but with all the modern amenities. AC is excellent...

The wonderful, personal service began when Jay picked us up at the airport and did not stop until he dropped us back off there 10 days later. The rooms were very clean and extremely well attended to. We would leave to for breakfast in the morning and they were freshly prepared before we returned. We spent time on the patio...

I fell in love with this place instantly from the moment I walked up the path to the front door! Absolute 1920s charm and the decor and soft flowing music just took you back to another world. Your balcony is over the water - literally. The bed so comfortable. And the staff utterly wonderful - I hate to call them...

We spent three days diving in Yap and loved this little Inn to come home to after a long day of diving. The staff is so attentive and welcoming. They called us by our names and always asked us if there was anything they could help us with during our stay. The rooms are comfortable, but small. The king sized...

Such a delightful little inn & a nice change from "resort" hotels on these Pacific islands. Staff so nice & accommodating. We loved our sweet room & felt like we were stepping back in time to the colonial era in the islands. Very well done! Five stars for doing things right...not because it is so luxurious.

I have stayed to O keefe water front Inn twice during business trips in Yap. This is the perfect place to stay for several days on this island so remote from home. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the wooden rooms are cozy and feel good, just on the water front where you can enjoy your breakfast looking at...

A wonderful Inn with lovely rooms located right on the water and within walking distance of all attractions. The Inn boasts all of the amenities you could ask for including the only hotel with television in the rooms. The staff are helpful and will guarantee that your experience on the island meets all of your expectations!

Just got back from four days on Yap for four days for an event. Stayed at hotel four nights. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to services. It is a quaint structure on the waterfront with all five rooms facing the sea. Rooms are well equipped with mini refrigerator, cable TV, and wifi. They have wood floors and...
