Description

The Space

Help to make your stay in Tokyo unforgettable at surely one of the best homes available on Airbnb in the city. 5 stories of stunning light-filled modern accommodation located in a tranquil setting just minutes away from the charming Azabu Juban area.

The house was designed and built in 2008. We used a leading Japanese designer / architect Baqueratta. They have created a beautiful house full of light and with a feeling of space. It has 4 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 8 people in fine style. There are two bathrooms including an en-suite bathroom for the main bedroom. The open plan living, kitchen, dining room is amazing. High ceilings with large windows allowing an abundance of light while providing total privacy. It is a great place to cook and relax or have us provide you with meals prepared in the kitchen by a local chef.

There is also a roof balcony with grass and a BBQ area. Take in the local scenery while relaxing in this central Tokyo sanctuary.

Floor configuration is as follows:
1F (note: 1F in Japan = ground floor): garage, entrance hall, traditional Japanese style tatami room, interior courtyard garden. The tatami room sleeps two Japanese style on comfortable single futons laid out on the floor
2F: 1 x twin with 2 x single beds, 1 x double (bed size w160 x l180), WC, main bathroom with bath and rain shower.
3F: open plan sitting room / dining room / kitchen
4F: master bedroom suite featuring a beautiful Cocoon model bed from German bed company Ruf Betten (160x180) + ensuite shower room

Make your stay in Tokyo unforgettable by staying in one of the city's most stylish residences.

Interaction with Guests

You will have the place to yourselves and we will not bother you unless you need us. That said, we live in the immediate neighbourhood and are but a telephone / e-mail away for 24/7 support and any help you might need.

The Neighborhood

With approaching 40 million in the greater Tokyo area this is the world's big daddy city and can be very confusing. Central Tokyo comprises 23 wards. We are in the central Minato-ward, which is high end residential, home to many embassies, some of the city's best eating and drinking and key tourist attractions such as Tokyo Tower. The house is in the Minami Azabu neighbourhood behind the South Korean embassy. The immediate surroundings of the house are very tranquil but the bustling and very popular Azabu Juban shopping street is just 5 mins walk away. This shopping street retains some old world charm while being located right next to Roppongi Hills and other large developments. Up the hill from the house you have the lovely Aruisagawa Park and there are also a number of nearby temples and shrines and the house is well located for Tokyo's more famous attractions. So you have peace and tranquility when you need it whilst also being surrounded by plenty of shops and nice restaurants: an ideal base from which to explore Tokyo. We'll give you a personalised guidebook with some our favourite local recommendations when you book with us. We are also happy to show you around.

Getting Around

The nearest subway station is Azabu Juban on the Namboku and Oedo lines, 1km / a 10 minute walk away. There are also plenty of local buses and taxis are never hard to come by. Full information will be provided upon booking.

Other Things to Note

If you are celebrating a special occasion and would like to make your stay extra special we can organise a luxury celebration package: Nicolai Bergman flower creations, chilled bottle of champagne waiting your arrival, a range of bath products, a welcome to Tokyo goody box and fridge stocked with delicious things to eat and drink and a wine / sake seminar and tasting at wine bar Parabola. Please contact us for further details and pricing.

We can also offer a concierge service to help you get around this wonderful but at times confusing city and assist with restaurant / tour bookings. Just ask in advance.

Minato, Japan · Member since January 2014

I have been living in Tokyo since 2001. After a career with PwC I am now running my own wine bar in the centre of the city. 15 years is a long time but Tokyo is simply the best city in the world, a real treasure trove of exciting things to see, taste and do. I look forward to welcoming you here and introducing some of my favourite places. In the picture the Dawson family with wife Junko, son Alexander and daughter Rika. (Third daughter Ellie was sleeping.)
