Fantastic place and true to the pictures. Extremely convenient 10mins slow walk to Kyoto station. Just 2mins to a seven-eleven and 4mins to a Lawsons. Check-in is very easy and the staff came by for the checking-in procedures. The phone in the house is extremely handy to get assistance from the company, especially for booking of taxis which is just 600yen to the station. It was raining so it cost us about 1600yen to kiyomizu dera. The washing machine with dryer is such a godsend in this weather. This is definitely in our top 3, if not the top, amongst all our airbnb experiences! Thanks for hosting this lovely property on airbnb!

We spend some super nice days in this fantastic house. The house is beautifully decorated: a great combination of Japanese tradition and modern comfort. The host was very nice and helpful. From the Kyoto station it is only a 5 minute walk to the house (and due to the clear instructions easy to find). Good location too! I would love to go there again.

A very good experience, the house is very clean, very comfortable, very good location, the distance is only seven or eight minutes walk from JR Kyoto Station, there are a lot of convenience stores, and very quiet. A layer of Washroom greenhouse function is very practical. The overall feeling is very good.
