Andrea was a wonderful host and gave us lots of local info that helped our short stay in Kyoto go more smoothly! The house is stunning and a really unique experience. 100% recommend. Shout out to the ducks in the river who we fed from the balcony!

Andrea and Mayumi's place is exactly what we hoped for; traditional interiors and a peaceful environment after visiting busy Tokyo. It is located a walk from the geisha district, close enough to go see but far away enough to escape the other tourists (ideal for us). Mayumi was amazingly helpful about the check in process and provided us with some bread and juice in the kitchen which we ate on the balcony for breakfast. Their book of reccomendations was super helpful on knowing where to go and what to do. Best place we have stayed at so far!

What a terrific place to stay in Kyoto. The location is perfect. Walking distance from so many of Kyoto's highlights, fabulous eateries and bars on your doorstep and just a short very easy bus ride from the station (15 minutes from stepping off the Bullet train to walking into the house). Andrea was there to greet us and rapidly took us around the property and oriented us in Kyoto with lots of recommendations. The kitchen was well stocked with coffee, tea, milk, orange juice, bread and noodles. The balcony is wonderful, overlooking a little river and the aircon provided all the heat we needed during our winter stay. The washing machine was also hugely appreciated and allowed us to re-pack with clean clothes at the end of our stay. My first airbnb experience... and what an experience. Many thanks.

My friends and I has a lovely stay in Kyoto. Our welcome by Andrea was brilliant. He let us check in early and spent time with us showing the apartment and then giving us some great advice and tips for what to do and see in Kyoto. The location of the apartment was ideal! We could either walk or jump on a bus to anywhere we wanted to go with ease. There are also lovely restaurants and bars near so we didn't have to venture far. The apartment itself is comfortable and the balcony was a nice feature to sit and watch the world go by.

Andrea & Mayumi User ProfileAndrea & Mayumi is a superhost.

We are Andrea and Mayumi! Australia and love for new experiences brought us together !
For six years we have traveled the world together sleeping in the most absurd and disparate place. In Italy we have managed tourist apartments for years and now that we moved to Kyoto , the birthplace of Mayumi , we would like to put at your disposal our experience to introduce you this fantastic city in the way it deserves.
Andrea: "Personally, I feel even more tourists resident. In my spare time , when I'm not busy studying the language , I love to lose myself and find myself on the banks of the Kamogawa river . " I think it has something magical that always manages to draw me in spite of everything . If you like sports or readers like myself, do not forget your sneakers or your readings , the banks of the Kamogawa are perfect for these practices ! Welcome revelers are also musicians and aspiring photographers . In short, Kamogawa is for everyone! "
In addition to welcome you upon your arrival , We will indicate places to see , shops or restaurants to eat and anything else you need !
We speak English Italian and Japanese . With the Spaniard we will arrange ! ;)
See you there!

Siamo Andrea e Mayumi! L’Australia e l’amore per le nuove esperienze ci ha fatti incontrare!
Per sei anni abbiamo girato il mondo assieme dormendo nei posti più assurdi e disparati. In Italia abbiamo gestito appartamenti turistici per anni ed ora che ci siamo trasferiti a Kyoto, città natale di Mayumi, vorremmo mettere al Vostro servizio la nostra esperienza per introdurVi questa fantastica città nella maniera in cui merita.
Andrea: “Personalmente mi sento ancora più turista che residente. Nel mio tempo libero, quando non sono impegnato a studiare la lingua, adoro perdermi e ritrovare me stesso lungo le sponde del fiume Kamogawa”. Penso che abbia un qualcosa di magico che riesce sempre ad attrarmi nonostante tutto. Se siete sportivi o lettori come il sottoscritto, non dimenticate le vostre scarpe da ginnastica o le vostre letture, le sponde del Kamogawa sono perfette per queste pratiche! Benvenuti siano anche suonatori festaioli e aspiranti fotografi. Insomma, Kamogawa è per tutti!”
Oltre ad accoglierVi al Vostro arrivo, Vi indicheremo posti da vedere, negozi o ristoranti in cui mangiare e qualsiasi altra cosa abbiate bisogno!
Parliamo Italiano Inglese e Giapponese. Con lo spagnolo ci si arrangia! ;)
Vi aspettiamo!
