Great charm and character! We loved our stay, the place was well equipped, comfortable and cozy, full of personal touches. The location was so nice, little restaurants, a relaxing area away from all the bustle but super quick and easy to get to main stations. Gilles was really helpful and accommodating and quick to be in touch whenever we had questions!

It's very close to the station and there are two lines to go to Shibuya and Shinjuku, which it's very nice. The place it's small but cozy, the stairs are very steep (as mentioned in the description), the neighborhood it's really quiet and neighbors are nice.

Loved our stay at Gilles, Mayumi and Taiki's house! Very tidy and cute place. The closest station is Meidaimae station and while it was not a JR line it is very close to Shinjuku so it is inexpensive. It is also a main station so all trains stop there. The flat is very close to the station and there are plenty of shops to buy groceries and some nice ramen. There is also a very cute antique store close by which we would definitely recommend. Gilles sent us a very handy pdf before hand which provided all the information we needed and he stayed in very good contact with us. It was so nice to be able to retreat to this comfortable and beautiful house after the hectic Tokyo streets. Thank you so much for our stay. Lauren and Paul xxxx

Gilles and Mayumi are fantastic hosts. When making the booking they were very thoughtful, accommodating and flexible for the dates we needed to stay. The studio itself is a living art piece and conveniently located in the quiet neighborhood of Matsubara which is within walking distance to the hip and fashionable suburb of Shimokitazawa or otherwise to a choice of train stations, giving easy access to Shibuya or Shinjuku and beyond. Basecamp studios are super clean and maintained daily. The many common areas are forever interesting, inviting and cleverly thought out, definitely designed with chilling out in mind. The kitchen is functional, tidy and well equipped. I like to cook so was very happy to have it this option available. The rooms are spacious with plenty of space for storage. There is a train line that runs at the back of the house, but depending on which room you are in it can be easy to fade into the background. Overall, my partner and I loved the place and the time we had with Gilles and Mayumi. I would not hesitate to recommend staying there and in fact would be the 1st place I would look for if going back to Tokyo.

We had a great stay! Giles was very responsive and came to pick us up from the neighbourhood train station. He was also checking in every few days if everything was ok, which was nice. The home was accurate as described, the stairs are steep and the house is quite small, but it is cozy and enough room for 2-3 people. The bedroom was warm once the heater was running, and bed and pillows were very comfortable. For the extra person sleeping in the living room, the heating is slightly more challenging as it's a bigger space, but overall we all had good nights' sleep! The neighbourhood is peaceful, close to the station and location-wise it's only 10 minutes to Shibuya or Shinjuku with express trains. I recommend this lodging and I certainly wouldn't mind to stay there again!

This was an absolutely lovely home to stay in, in an amazing location. Just out of the busy areas but not so far to make it difficult to get to. Gilles was very helpful and responded to any questions we had very quickly, he also checked in to see that we were enjoying our stay and made us feel very welcome. Can't recommend this airbnb enough!

This was our first AirBnb experience and Gilles and Mayumi really made us feel at home. From helpful hints about restaurants to making us tea in the morning, these guys are great hosts and real sweethearts. The house was not as small as we were expecting from my previous experience with cheap Japanese hotels, so I was pleasantly suprised. The house was clean, and tastefully decorated. Thanks for letting us stay with you GIlles and Mayumi!
