Marine's home is lovely, perfect for a weekend in Tokyo. It's really close to shimi katawaza station (the train goes right past the house!) and takes you directly into Shibuya. Marine is helpful and friendly.

Marine's place is a tiny self-contained house, two minutes from Shimo-Kitazawa station. Downstairs is open plan, artistic and very beautifully presented, Marine has payed great attention to detail. The bedroom I stayed in upstairs is lovely, and Marine offered me use of the kitchen, bathroom and the sitting area downstairs, so I felt very much at home. The train line is directly behind the house, which means that you can hear the trains go by, I personally didn't mind it at all, but if you're a light sleeper you might want to take this into consideration. Marine is a wonderful host, very warm and welcoming, helpful and reliable, and she answered all my questions. If you are looking for a very individual experience in Tokyo I can definitely recommend her place.

Marine is a great host, she welcomed me in to her lovely and cosy house and was always just a message away, answering every question or request. The house is really nicely designed, the air-con is powerful enough for those crazy Tokyo summer days and the rain shower is a treat. The train is running near by but I didn't mind the sound, I actually found it soothing. Shimo-Kitazawa is an awesome area with loads of cool shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, the house is located in a quiet side street so you don't hear and of the hustle and bustle when it's time to go to bed. The only thing I would improve is the check-in hours. Since I landed in the morning after an 11hr flight I could really do with putting my stuff down and getting refreshed quickly before starting my day. Otherwise, it's been an awesome stay. Thanks Marine!

Response from Marine:
Thank you for your stay in my place, Daniel. It would be difficult for early check in, especialy early in the morning time because of my work as I write on my listing and I informed you in advance. If you wanted early check in even though my information, you should look for other places. Anyway, I enjoyed sharing my space with you.

Marine’s place is an island of peaceful green in the frequently chaotic sea that is Tokyo. Shimokitazawa is a really hip neighborhood with lots of vintage shops and tasty, offbeat food, and her space is somehow just steps away from the main thoroughfare and train station and also quiet, cool, cozy and comfortable. Marine was a kind, clear host and I felt very welcome in her space. Anyone traveling to Tokyo who wants to see a different side of the city—or even just get away after a long day—I’d recommend her place. Thanks, Marine!

Marine's apartment is even lovelier in person! She was such a welcoming host and her home was truly a delight to stay in. Very well located with close proximity to plenty of shops & restaurants and just around the corner from the subway station. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in Tokyo!
