  • 地點佳又乾淨,唯一美中不足的是我已告知住房人數為3大人2小孩,但你告知會準備足夠的被子,結果等我們到了後,看到只有2件被子,惾眼了,mail聯絡你却得不到回應,結果小孩感冒了,出遊心情都被打壞了。

    你好,在房间的介绍信息中,我们明确写着这个房间是不适合一家人住的。当你第一次用邮件联系我时我就告诉你,这个房间不适合小孩子住。但是让我感到惊奇的是,你还是直接预约了这个房间!因为事先我已经告诉你们,这个房间不适合你们了! 同时我也告诉你们,我们有其他的房间是适合你们这样有小孩子的房客。 还有最重要的一点,我们并没有收到你们发的“被褥不够”的邮件!如果我们有收到你们的邮件,我们一定会以最快的速度为你们准备被褥的!非常抱歉,这次给你们带来的不便和我们不能有一个很好的交谈!为此我们感到非常的抱歉!

  • This was a great little apartment in a fabulous location. You really couldn't get a better deal in Shibuya Tokyo. Of course it was a bit small (as expected in Tokyo) but didn't feel cramped. We loved this apartment and would definitely stay again!

    Thank you Laura. Yes that location is really good. Very convenient spot. Thanks again for choosing to stay.

  • This is a really nice Tokyo sized apartment. yes, it is small but it is functionnal and its location is just perfect near the Shibuya station which allowed us to easily go around Tokyo. Moreover, although Shibuya can be a really busy place, this apartment is in the quiet part of Shibuya, so it was really quiet.

    Response from Geoff & Jo:

    Hello Herve. Thank you, you summed it up exactly. That location has a great combination of peace and quiet...plus....it's so close to all the main sights of Shibuya. Happy you liked it!

    May 2014
  • Directions to the apartment were perfect. It is located off of Shibuya (a huge metro /train stop!), but still quiet. The place is clean with a comfy mattress. We didn't use the washing machine but it's great that they have it. The portable wireless router is a GODSEND for getting around Tokyo.

    We had one issue with hot water due to a small earthquake the day we got in but it was resolved the next day.

    Recommended place!

    Hi Kristina. Happy you liked that spot. And yes, so many guests like the portable WiFi.....comes in really handy.

    May 2014
  • Getting into contact with the hosts was easy and replies were quick and clear. The accommodation was nice and cosy. Location is very convenient as it was close to the station and main shops/restaurants, within walking distance. Cheap prices to stay for a week near the city.

    Response from Geoff & Jo:

    It was our pleasure having you as a guest Jess. Yes you're right. Ends up being a lot more comfortable and cheaper than a hotel. Happy you enjoyed it.

  • We loved our stay in this Shibuya apartment! Geoff & Jo were extremely helpful & responsive with all our enquiries. The location was amazing, only a few minutes walk to Shibuya Station with amazing food & shopping. The apartment was clean, modern & the portable wifi was great for getting around Tokyo. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

    Glad you enjoyed it Adam. Good to hear your time in Tokyo went well.

  • If you fancy a very pleasant and calm spot near the crazed epicentre of Shibuya (which I did) this is perfect. It's a very short walk to the crossing, station, shops, neon but you can escape it all to chill out. There's the four thousand restaurants of Shibuya close to hand but some very good ones in surprising places even closer, a minute from the apartment. The accommodation is modestly sized but extremely clean, well-arranged and comfortable. Geoff is a kind, superb source of information about all details of the area and travel arrangements and this was much appreciated on my first visit to Japan!

    Response from Geoff & Jo:

    You summed it up perfectly, thanks Chris! Exactly - short walk to everything, but nice and calm when you are in the apartment. Sounds like you had a great first time in Japan. Thanks for being such an open-minded guest.

  • Fantastic stay! Location is great, with central station Shibuya a few minutes walk. 24 hours Lawsons, Family Mart and 7/11 are just around the corner. The portable wifi provided by Geoff have been invaluable.

  • It was a very beautiful appartment in the right place.
    Near of shibuya and central of Tokyo, it was very practical for us.

    The packet wifi is perfect and useful. Good idea.
    The owner have a home manual very precise with all the information you need.

    I recommend !

    Thanks Francois. Glad you appreciated all the information we gave. Happy it came in useful. Thanks again.

  • This apartment was awesome! Wonderful location in a surprisingly quiet neighborhood given its proximity to Shibuya station (5 minutes walking). The building was very clean, and has an elevator (lugging a heavy suitcase up 5 flights of stairs after a long trip is not fun). Loved having the 24-hour Family Mart just down the street for last minute purchases before heading back after a long day exploring. Geoff & Jo were very quick to respond to my emails, and extremely friendly. The place was immaculate. Very clean and well stocked. It was nice being able to do a load of laundry, and having the mobile WiFi unit was perfect. The bed was also extremely comfortable. Next time I'm in Tokyo, I will definitely be staying here. Thanks Geoff & Jo!

    Response from Geoff & Jo:

    Wow Alex thanks so much for the great review! Yes exactly - that's the great thing, it's close to everything in Shibuya but when you are at the apartment it's nice and peaceful. Sure we'd be glad to have you stay again.
