500 Days of Summer B&B

From the Host

We always welcome guests that are looking for something like a cozy home rather than a clean and perfectly put together hotel. Try walking around the small alleys in Jeju as much as you can. There may be times when you think there isn’t a pathway, but when you keep walking, a pathway appears, and the stonewall houses continue. The scenery is something quite different to other areas in Korea. Later, if you revisit this area, just stop by here for a cup of coffee, even if you are not a paying guest at our house. We welcome you!


 

A happy memory in Jeju with a special B&B brings a smile to your face


‘Wow! A brunch this good can’t be free, right?”
The brunch at “500 Days of Summer” was much better than expected. The neatly plated spread, including fresh salad, grilled sausage & vegies, scrambled eggs and Italian bread, is waiting for guests in a tidy little garden. The brunch is always carefully prepared by the host. It is definitely true that one of the very many reasons why travelers revisit here is because of this sincere and warmhearted brunch!

Jeoji-ri village, where “500 Days of Summer B&B” is located, is a quiet and peaceful place with a delicate mix of art and cozy atmosphere. This attracts many renowned painters and writers, not only from Korea but also from neighboring countries like China and Japan, giving them a perfect environment to create new pieces. It’s equally fascinating to wander around “Artist’s village in Jeoji”, where you, also, might be inspired by the charmingly built artists’ houses. As you walk through the village, you have a chance to appreciate great artworks at the “Jeju Museum of Modern Art”. So it’s a place just for artlovers? Not at all! Gotjawal Forest, which is a forest in the temperate zone that is considered exotic even by global standards, is a treat for the artistic and nature lover alike.


So where did the name come from? “We named the B&B after the movie “500 Days of Summer” with a hope that this place could also be a happy memory for our guests when they recall their trip to Jeju, especially after getting back to the daily grind.” The name came to mind suddenly but brought a happy smile to their faces, so it seemed like the perfect choice!

The host couple used to have a treadmill life in Seoul, just like everybody else, but one day the husband could not help but retire much earlier than expected. For a while, the couple pondered what to do for their future, but made a bold decision to move to Jeju Island. No wonder they chose Jeju as their second home though, since they traveled to there so often whenever they just wanted get away from it all.

On Jeju Island, especially in Jeoji-ri village, time passes slowly, unlike a city life where every second is precious. Initially, it was difficult for the couple to adapt. However, she finally found her own way of enjoying a new life, starting to learn how to catch seafood like Haenyeo (women divers) at “Hansupul Haenyeo School” and mingle with the village elders. And husband? He worked in every corner of the B&B, including planting palm trees and fruit trees in a small garden for family travelers. Now they understand how to fully enjoy all the beauty and calmness of an island difficult to describe in mere words, and hope their guests will do so as well during their stay on Jeju.

   Host's recommendation

 


If you want to enjoy a lazy morning near the B&B, I would like to recommend you to take an easy, breezy stroll along the path inside the Artist’s village in Jeoji. For a one day tour, a slow drive along the coastal road will be a good choice. Please do not rely on a navigation device or app, since it only shows the main road to a certain destination. The first place you will come across along the coastal road will be Suwolbong Peak, which is considered the number one place for sunset viewing, and one of the most important geological features on Jeju. And just a little further on is a picturesque oreum, ‘Songaksan’. Then, if you keep driving towards the south enjoying the scenery of the west, you will arrive at Jungmun Tourist Complex. Here, park your car near the Jeju CS Hotel, and walk for a while following the Jeju Olle ribbons. Your last destination, “Jusangjeolli Cliff in Daepodong”, will be waiting for you.

 


 

   Shared cafe & pub "Insari"

 


Recently, the host remodeled a shared café at the B&B to a casual pub for the guests’ convenience, since almost all nearby restaurants close at around 8 pm. The pub, called ‘Insari’ (‘being a good companion to loneliness’ in Jeju dialect), where your breakfast is served, opens from 6 pm to 10 pm. Your free breakfast will be prepared here as well.
