House owner(?) was very very kind and gave me the perfect information before I get there. That's why I found the house very easily. And village was very calm as well. AND!!! Room condition and everything was perfect for us. We are 7 people and we just stayed 1 night but we thought that if we have some more days, we should stay here little bit longer!!!
I definiately come back again when I go to Osaka!!!! Wait for me, owner-san~~~~~ See you then again!
The location of the apartment is convenient to JR and subway station but there're three spots of serious leakage in one double room(one on top of the bed, one on top of the sofa bed and the other one on top of the floor between bed and sofa bed) which makes the whole double room unable to use and the problem was not fixed during our stay. I saw this issue before on other previous reviews but landlord promised that the problem was fixed already. When we first discovered the leakage problem, only one spot and the landlord agrees to refund 20%. But later on, 2 other leakage spots appear(at mid night when the 2/F tenants are using bathroom I guess) and create more issues such as polluted my roommate's clothes and personal stuff, but the landlord refused to give more compensation because they have settled this dispute by 20% refund already. I may not choose to stay in this house again when I visit Osaka next time because the leakage issue may happen again.
We apologize about the leak again. We had it fixed before by a professional twice and could not have foreseen that there would be another problem. We have since done another complete check with another professional and have changed all the pipes which the professionals told us will prevent this from happening again. We are surprised to see this review because we understood you were happy with the refund that you requested.
It was great staying in this place as it had everything we need (and more). The apartment is spacious and very close to train stations. I would recommend this if you intend to stay in Osaka with a group, especially with your family. Definitely A+++ in our book! We'd love to stay here again.
Très décevant !
Points positifs :
Excellent contact, réponses rapides.
Il a été très facile de trouver l'appartement grâce aux indications précises des propriétaires.
Appartement à 2 pas d une station de métro ( ligne principale à 2 stations des quartiers animés d Osaka ).
Wifi de très bonne qualité !
Points Négatifs :
- Appartement en très mauvais état et extrêmement sale même après un ménage effectué le lendemain de notre arrivée à ma demande. Salle de bain dans un état lamentable. Draps tachés, troués et complètement froissés. Store cassé rendant le salon aveugle... etc
- Quartier pas terrible.
- Un soi disant sauna sur le toit terrasse servant malheureusement de debarras .
... Entre autre !
Désolé pour Chris et Ayano qui semblent faire de leur mieux mais les gens qu ils emploient pour gérer leurs biens ne font pas du bon boulot. Je n y reviendrai pas !
Very disappointing !
Positive points :
Very good communication. Fast answers.
It was easy to find the flat thanks to hosts' very precise indications.
Accomodation situated near subway station ( main line 2 stations away from Osaka most animated areas).
Super fast Wifi !
Negative points :
Accommodation in a very poor state and extremely dirty even after a second cleaning done the day after arrival on my demand. Bathroom in a bad state must be renovated.
Bed linen had holes were stained and completely wrinkled.
The flat was very dark as roller blind was broken in the living room...etc
The roof on which the "sauna" is is unfortunately used to store various old stuffs and furniture.
... Amongst others !
Sorry for Chris and Ayano who seem to do their best but their caretakers don't seem to do a good job there. They should go and check to protect their investment. pretty sure I won't come back !
Location is very convenient. Few mins away from JR and Subway. Places also not bad just that a bit dirty. Floor a bit sticky so we have to mop them on the 1st day. Not sure how to operate the microwave. The rest are good esp locations.
We are sorry Sally about the floor and the microwave. We place booklets on how to use the appliances but sometimes they lost. We wish you would have let us know and we could have sent you the instructions or dropped by. Also we would have come to clean the floor. We hope overall that your enjoyed your stay!
We were in a group of 9paxs. The house was big enough to fit all of us comfortably. It's just 10min walk away from train station. Owner was helpful when we had questions. Recommended!
