Two people stayed for two months. All went well! Great location for experiencing real life in Kobe and getting into town - bike or train.

This place was well prepared and neat when we arrived. It is very close to great coffee, food, and conveniences. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone looking for simple but complete accommodation in a small Japanese household setting.

The place was simple but met our needs. Host was very good with his communication. Couldn't have asked for a better value.

For a family who wishes to bond and get away from technology will find this place a good choice. No tv, radio and no wifi. Very clean but lacking heated flooring for those visiting during winter. However if anybody still requires a wifi but didn't get it from the airport, could still get it from Sannomiya station area and head to Labi store located in Central Plaza and buy the prepaid internet access from NTT Docomo for 3000 yen good for 15 days or other prepaid plans.

We have lived in Kobe for many years and really love it. We have apartments that are usually occupied by short term tenants, but on the advice of a friend, we thought it might be perfect to open them up to airbnb.
We are hikers, and 20 years ago I decided to start climbing the one hundred famous mountains of Japan - and I am part way there - but it is taking much longer than I thought.
