Great location for authentic and wonderful machiya with many comforts of home (washer/dryer, iron, microwave, portable wifi, umbrellas, etc). Great ongoing communication with property manager. A couple differences from online listing (no TV, additional Kyoto daily tax required) but overall great experience and would definitely love to stay again!!
The hosts had thought of everything. A wonderful experience.
Ten days in Kyoto
Overall, we were very happy with the house. There was plenty of space for all 5 of us. The location of the house was ideally located to get around Kyoto and subways. The only comment was that the upstairs bathroom sink was leaking and really could not be used although the owner tried to fix it by using tape. It was fun getting hot can coffee from the vending machine across the house.
Beautiful house fully equipped and located centrally within walking distance to Kyoto station.
The host was excellent and provided comprehensive information on how to get to the house and to get in and the requirements as temporary residents in Japan. The house is beautifully decorated and well equipped with crockery, glasses, cutlery. We had a problem with WiFi and rang the company who agreed to send someone over but we managed to resolve it ourselves once we found the router. The only issue is limited space to hang your clothes with only one rack for hanging in one of the bedrooms. There were 6 of us and there was just enough space to sit round the dining table. We only found out that the table could be extended on the last evening. We did not cook but the facilities were there if required.
The location is central and you can walk to Kyoto station for trains and main bus station. Around the station area are numerous food outlets and a local bar 5 minutes walk from the house met our need for craft beers. The day ticket for buses at 600 yens was well worth it for city hopping. The house also had numerous leaflets on places to visit. We would definitely come back again and recommend this house to friends/family
