Excellent, Comfortable, and Amazing Private Room!!

I have a private loft on the 3rd floor of my house with door and lock in my 3 bedroom house available. It's pretty big and comfortable. Nice room for a couple as it has a bit bigger bed (semi-double). It has nice views of the city and lots of sunlight. It is possible to put 1 extra futon in here and have 2 sleeping surfaces if you are 2 friends or need it. I will give you a set of keys for the house and room so you can come and go as you please. There is no curfew.

Conveniently near ROPPONGI and central SHIBUYA, Ebisu is easily accessed by the JR Yamanote (the main Tokyo Train Loop) and Hibiya lines via Ebisu Station. Together with the trendy neighboring communities of Daikanyama and Hiroo, it has boutiques, vintage stores and patisseries all within easy walking distance from Ebisu station. Therefore, Ebisu is one of the most expensive places to live in in Tokyo. You will be closer to almost everything here. Just think of the money you will save in train fare, taxi fare, and the extra time you will have to be enjoying TOKYO.

EBISU: Upscale neighborhood home to Ebisu Garden Place which includes The Beer Museum Yebisu and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography!!
Ebisu Station is surrounded by restaurants and lively at night.
Footnik (Soccer), What the Dickens (Live Music), and Red Dragon ( Foreign Food) are popular in the area.

FREE: in-house Wi-Fi, bedding, towels, and basic toiletries provided. You are free to use the washing machine, living room, and kitchen as well. There is bicycle or motorbike parking included if needed. I may have an extra bicycle I can rent you too if you are interested.

Big SHOWER Room with bathtub and separate Toilet room.
Bathroom SINK w/ big MIRROR.
HAIRDRYER and IRON available.
A/C and HEATER in every room.

ALSO, I have 2 other bedrooms in this house if you need to accommodate 4-7 people. I usually live here but I often travel as well. Please email if you would like to rent out 2 bedrooms at the same time and we can build it into 1 reservation. It is also possible to rent out the whole!! I have a separate listing for this.

LISTINGS: I have about 15 units/apartments around the city on Airbnb so check "my other listings" too please!!

I'm okay with it ( but of course they need to go home the next day :) i want you to enjoy your stay here!! I know this is a much more comfortable stay than a hostel and definitely cheaper than a regular hotel but with basically the same amenities.


Check-in: Times are flexible but YOU must request by email an early check-in (before 4pm). You can always drop your bags off early. Late check-in is always available.
Check-out: 12 NOON. You can leave your bags in the living room and come back later for them if needs be.

Availability: My caledar is basically ALWAYS UP-TO-DATE no matter what this website says. For your convenience, there is no need to ask me if it is available. Also, last-minute bookings are usually no problem. Typically, the first paid reservation will get the apartment/room. A short introduction of yourself is always nice.

Train Information: Train timetables are on 2 websites: Hyperdia or Jorudan Trains in Japan. All the info you need is there! There is also an Airport Limousine Bus (not expensive) that has direct service from Narita and Haneda airports to the Westin Hotel very near my house. All 3 have English websites.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Our first airbnb (out of 5) for our 3 week Japan trip - it was a good first week and highly recommended due to easy access (to the staton, places to eat) simple and fair rules. Will was very lovely, laid back and accommodating to our questions and requests. The house is clean, all facilities available and convenience stores nearby too. :)

    June 2014
  • Highly recommend. I never got the opportunity to meet with Will, however he returned my messages quickly and was always helpful with any questions I had. The detailed directions provided with pictures were easy to follow from the Westin Hotel. Apartment is located in a safe quiet area which is walking distance to most things in the city.

    April 2014
  • Will has a nice house just outside the centre of Ebisu in a safe Japanese/European neighborhood that is good value to stay and just a 10 minute walk from the train station.
    The house was clean, safe for your valuables, easy to find, near some nice restaurants and away from the craziness of there center of town.... this is somewhere i will stay again!
    The loft room is nice and comfortable and the best of all the rooms for size.
    I recommend this listing.

    March 2014
  • Cozy space in a cool neighborhood. If you're planning to spend most of your time in Tokyo out and about, this is great place to crash at the end of the day. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Will, but he was very easy to work with and we got into the apartment just fine. Would love to stay again.

    September 2013
  • It was awesome! Such a comfy room and bed! It was very clean!!!!

    Will responded so quickly when I needed a room the same day I arrived to Tokyo! He was also very helpful and informative about getting around the city! He's been there for five years so he knows what he's talking about!

    Also, I traveled alone so he invited me to the beach and to explore the nightlife with him and his friends! It was so much fun!!!

    July 2013
  • I had a great time staying here! With Will's directions, the place was very easy to find, and it was in a great location that was so convenient to get everywhere I wanted to go in the city. The room itself was very comfortable and homey, and I would definitely stay again if I can make it back to Tokyo. Many thanks, Will!

    June 2013
  • Great area, great place, quiet and convenient.

    May 2013
  • Will was helpful and friendly. His directions were great. The place was clean and I really liked the upstairs view. I met some other nice guests while staying here which was really fun.

    Also, I love a clean towel and there was one waiting for me.

    April 2013
  • Will was extremely friendly and made us feel really at home the moment we stepped into his house. We really liked Ebisu and exploring the surrounding areas, we found some great restaurants in Daikanyama about 15 mins away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would defiantly recommend it.

    April 2013
  • We had an amazing trip in Japan and spent 3 nights at Will’s place.

    The room is larger than it looks in the photos. It’s lovely and bright with an exceptionally comfy bed.

    The apartment overall including the toilet and shower was very clean, and the shower pressure was AMAZING! Again the bathroom is larger than it appears in the photos.

    Will’s home is about 15 mins walk from the train platform including getting out of the station itself which is quite large. It was nice and sunny so we didn’t mind the walk – though with heavy cases it seemed further.

    We were out site seeing a lot of the time, so though we didn’t spend much time with him – I can say Will was very sweet and laid back.

    A comfortable and pleasant stay.

I love Tokyo. This place is just indescribably cool. You can stay up all night and find whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only that, I have never felt unsafe here no matter where I was. I guess you will just have to come here and find out for yourself about how awesome this city is!! I have been in Tokyo about 7 years now and there is so much to do that you can never get bored. Also, it's not as expensive as everyone might think. There are definitely cheap places around to eat and drink!!! And ALL the restaurants here are delicious. You don't need a recommendation really as it any place you walk into will be good. I love sports of any kind, keeping busy, and laughing. I also really enjoying spending time with my friends. We eat out, drink, dance, play billiards, darts, and sing karaoke. I love meeting new people too. Nothing like sharing some good stories from around the globe. I am not fluent in Japanese but I'm getting better and usually can get what is needed on my own. I like to enjoy life and live in the moment so I'm pretty easygoing. I am a full time airbnb host. I now have over 30 listings and just love it! I am really getting into this Airbnb thing so I am keeping pretty busy but I will do my best to help you with what you need. Any questions? Any at all, feel free to ask. Finally, It is my goal that people have an awesome, relaxed, and stress free vacation so I hope you choose to stay with me!! I may be easygoing but I am serious about business and relationships. I will make sure that your accommodation here is comfortable and you have what you need. I do have a support network here to help me as well. I now have over 25 places to choose from in all parts of the city so check them out and let me know which place you like best! You can view all of them from my profile page by clicking on 'View all listings' blue button in the lower left hand corner. Hope to hear from you soon!!
