NOTE **Although totally central, the neighborhood, building and neighboring tenants are quiet and respectful. In this way, this flat suits chilled out people who respect this vibe, wanting a quiet retreat away from the bustle of Tokyo. This is not a "party pad" and we encourage people who want to throw late night parties in the flat to search out other options. Different to a hotel, we prefer to rent to people who appreciate as if it was their own home, taking care of it in the same way.

**The flat pricing varies according to the number of people staying and the season. We set the flat pricing at great value for the central location against the cost of any small mediocre hotel. We can not offer reduced pricing on request. Nor can we open the schedule to match your desired date if the dates don't show as free. The accurate pricing and availability are reflected in the booking query.**

  • Ms. Yolanda was a great host. Promptly reply to all my emails. Gave us clear directions and orientation about the apartment. The pocket wifi was very helpful. Whatever you see in the photo that is exactly what the apartment looks like - clean & everything is working. I love my stay here, just outside the terrace there's one Sakura tree in its full bloom - very beautiful. The only downside is there's no elevator but Ms. Yolanda is very willing to help carry your luggage. The apartment is very accessible, very near to shibuya station, can visit Hachiko & experience the scramble crossing (it was fun!). You can find Disney store where you can buy tickets in advance if you have plans going to Disneyland or DisneySea. A lot of local food shops, near to 7/11, mcdonalds, Starbucks and of course our favorite Ichiran ( the best Ramen I've ever tasted and it's cheap).
    I would love to stay here again.

  • The apartment is easy to locate. It is at the center of everything you will need in a vacation - lots of convenience stores around, fastfood chains and local restaurants and the Shibuya subway station a few minutes away. The area is quiet and serene. There is even a Sakura tree outside the apartment.

    The room is spacious enough. It has a kitchen, dining room, bathroom and a bedroom good for four people. All the appliances have English instructions prepared by the host which makes it easier to use. There is a washing machine with detergent for quick laundry tasks. A pocket wifi is also lent which is very useful when checking emails/imessages, looking for directions and confirming reservations.

    The host, Yolanda, is very nice and helpful. Even before the trip, she makes sure everything is set.

    All in all, this is a highly recommended apartment.

  • Excellent on all accounts: the place is well equipped and comfortable, the location is ideal and Yolanda a simply fantastic hostess. The apartment is just 5 minutes walk from the New South Exit of the Shibuya Station, (beware, the station is blocks long, so take the trouble of finding the right exit); it is very convenient to Yoyogi Park, the Meiji Shrine, the Shinjuku Gardens, and of course just an evening's stroll to the awesome Shibuya crossing. If you holding a JR rail pass, you'll appreciate that that JR Yamanote Loop Line runs through Shibuya, and if you're coming from or going to Narita, the Narita Express runs from the New South Exit end of Shibuya station, super convenient.

    The apartment is nice; there is a grocery just around the corner, and cooking there was a pleasure. There are many many great looking restaurants nearby, but for economy, we were preparing our own meals. Here's a recommendation for eating out: take then Yamanote Line 3 stops to Shinjuku, take the West Exit; there's a section just a block away of narrow pedestrian streets lined with tiny, crowded grills, not to be missed.

    Everything about the interaction with Yolanda was great, from pre-arrival communication, meeting us on arrival, and checking in with us during the stay.

    Really enjoyed everything about our stay in Shibuya!

  • Yolanda was a wonderful hostess! She was accommodating to our schedule when our plane was late, provided us with a detailed explanation of how everything worked in the apartment, and provided everything we would need. The location is excellent also. I would recommend this apartment and Yolanda to anyone wanting to go to Tokyo.

  • Yolanda was a perfect host - always on time and willing to help when needed. apartment was ideal for our needs - we stayed 2 nights with our 9 month old in a port-a-cot. even though apartment is small there was plenty of room for out baby to crawl around. the traditional futon bed was very comfortable we had excellent night sleeps. also very clean! the stairs were difficult to climb with our pram and luggage so be aware of this if traveling with a lot of luggage. location great close to restaurants, family mart, train station and the famous shibuya shopping and crazy intersection! highly recommend the Indian curry place on the corner! thank-you Yolanda!

  • Yolanda was a great host, very responsive to emails and also she was understanding when we were delayed on our arrival. There was no lift in the apartment, but Yolanda helped us with our suitcases up/down the apartment, which was much appreciated! She also let us check out later which was great as we were leaving to go to the airport and it allowed us to do some last minute shopping!

    The flat was very spacious by Tokyo standard, very tidy and with comfortable beds (futons) and lovely modern decor. The pocket wifi was especially useful for getting around and sightseeing. Overall it was a lovely stay and we really enjoyed ourselves!!!

  • This is an older apartment building without elevators but it adds to the experience as you get to live the life of an average central Tokyo resident. There is plenty of room for 2 in this space, the location is convenient to shopping and the Shibuya station and all the restaurants, groceries and shopping you will ever require but tucked away enough to still be fairly quiet. Bedding provided is comfortable and everything was clean and tidy. The host was very helpful and communicative and I would have no hesitation renting this apartment again.

    March 2014
  • We had a great time staying at Yolanda's apartment. The location is perfect, very close to the train station and to the Shibuya shopping district. The apartment itself was very clean and tidy and the perfect size for 2 people. Yolanda was a great host, i will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Tokyo!

    March 2014
  • We had a wonderful, but unfortunately very short stay with Yolanda in Shibuya. It was exactly what we were looking for! Centrally located and within walking distance to lots of Tokyo's sights and activities. A lovely sized apartment for 2.

    Yolanda was lovely when we met her and very accommodating to our needs! We would definitely recommend staying with her!! I wish we could have stayed longer. Next time! Thank you.

    March 2014
  • Stayed at Yolanda's place for 3 nights and it was a great stay. Very cozy and quiet place. The apartment is about 10 minutes walk from Shibuya shopping district and 5 minutes walk from the narita express. Very convenient! The only down side is that the place does not have an elevator. We were there during winter season and our luggages were heavy and we need to drag our luggages up 4 levels. Yolanda is a great host, very responsive. She even helped us with our luggages despite them being very heavy.
