The studio is very cosy and comfortable, the bathroom is big compare to the hotel we used to stayed in Tokyo, I particularly love the interior design, it stores everything away in its closets, feels spacious and not cluttered with things.
Another great thing about this studio is the location, it's in the middle of the JR line and subway lines, so it's super convenient to travel the city, and the neighborhood is surrounded with supermarkets, convenient stores, restaurants, even a mall in the JR train station, walk around the Otsuka area and you will be surprised.
Nick and Erika also has been very helpful and thoughtful through out the whole period that we stayed, they attained to our needs even before the trip started.
All in all, it has been a wonderful experience stayed in Nick and Erika's place, we definitely recommend this place for everyone who wants to layback and enjoy your time in Tokyo.
Amazing once again. I first stay in March and now in May. It still the same. The location and room are great. Easy access to restaurant, shopping, transportation and grocery. I highly recommend this place.
Erika and Nick's apartment is absolutely brilliant! Clean, modern, VERY pretty and REALLY cozy. Not only is the surrounding area quiet and nice, but it's also VERY convenient in terms of getting food/snacks/drinks or, getting to the train station (both stations are literally 5-8 minutes away).
Also, getting back to the apartment is really easy! Both otsuka (the yamanote line, it has a really cute mini mall and the yamanote line will take you to anywhere you need to go) and shin-otsuka (marunouchi line), are the only stations that takes you to where the apartment is located! So it's really hard to get lost :'D
Erika was the one who kept in contact with me, and she REALLY helped me out, especially since I'm a first time airbnb user and it was my first time traveling alone! The pocket wifi was really handy too (INSTAGRAM AND SNAPCHATTT).
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Tokyo and would DEFINITELY stay in again! Thank you so much Erika and Nick!!!!!
Very nice and clean apartment with new furniture and equipments. Bath room is very comfortable with new electronic-control facilities. The apartment is located in a very good location, supermarkets and minimart are around. Approx 8 mins walk to both JR and metro stations.
Nick and Erika were very responsive and answered me all questions. Highly recommended and will go back again :)
This apartment was very comfortable, quiet and private. It's far enough away from the train stations that you don't get the noise and the bustle, but still close enough for them to be easily accessible.
The room had everything I needed, including an iron (apparently not that common!). The furniture is all pretty low to the ground, which may be a challenge if you're over 6 feet tall like me and are not used to having to travel that far down to take a seat. Other than that, it was perfect. Thanks for having me!
Thank you so much Nick and Erika. You made us feel so comfortable staying at your place.
The apartment was so beautiful, we had everything that we needed and it was so close to the train station. We will definately be coming back to Japan and hope to stay again.
All the best,
Oudom and Marinna (AUS)
Nick kept in very good contact with us and provided immediate feedback. The apartment was very enjoyable to stay in, clean, modern with excellent laundry, kitchen and storage facilities.
The Otsuka train station provided several places to buy food items, a good bakery and a variety of cooked produce was readily available.
The neighbourhood was away from the busy streets and tourist areas but easy to access from the Yamanote Line.
