  • Gilles and his wife couldn't have been nicer, very welcoming, helped us with all our requests. They went above and beyond to make our stay easy and comfortable. The flat was ideal, great location quiet but minutes away from busy and and trendy shimokita. Thanks again

  • Lovely host, charming apartment in quiet, green village-like environment close to the station and only a 15 minute train ride to Shibuya. A real oasis in Tokyo. Highly recommended for those who want to be close to the action but still values peace and quiet.

  • Gilles and Mayumi's apartment is a gem in Tokyo! They both are very kind and Mayumi showed us the apartment and gave us tips on travelling around. It is a great place where you could experience the local lifestyle and close to Shibuya. Their bikes are great to explore nearby attractions too.

  • Gilles was very helpful, meeting us late at night in the pouring rain to show us into our apartment, even though we booked very last minute after being let down by another AirBNB member and having quite the day from hell, with missing our train, missing our flight, and then finding our flight at been delayed! The apartment is situated in a fantastic location, a quiet residential area, with a village community feel to it, just a few minutes walk to the station, and 10 minutes train ride to Shibuya! 7- Eleven next to the station too. The apartment as everything you could need, even some extra's like an electric guitar and keyboard, for a musical night in! Bicycles also provided, which we didn't really use, as wasn't there very long, but had we stayed longer, we would have made good use of them. Nice bikes, well maintained. Merci beaucoup Gilles & Co.

  • The apartment is in a fantastic spot, you get both a local village experience and very easy access to Shimokitazawa and Shibuya, two of the best areas of Tokyo. The hosts provide portable wi-fi which is very handy, as are the numerous guides and maps.

    Though we didnt't get to meet Gilles and Mayumi in person, Gilles was very helpful, providing constant assistance through AirBnB's inbox.

    Overall a lovely stay in a brilliant area, highly recommended.

  • Great appartment in an excellent location of Tokyo! We couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Tokyo. The appartment is perfectly equipped, super clean, bright and has a nice little balcony. There is a pocket wifi which is very convenient.

    We were surprised that the great neighbourhood (Shimokitazawa in walking distance) was not mentioned in Lonely planet, as Shimokita was definitely our favourite neighbourhood in Tokyo. (However, the more well known central locations Shibuya and Shinjuku are just a few stops away).

    Last but not least Gilles and Mayumi are very nice and helpful hosts always willing to assist in any problem or question you might have.

    Overall we highly recommend this flat to anyone visiting Tokyo.

  • First of all, Gilles and Mayumi are amazing people. They are very kind and friendly, and we immediately felt very comfortable with them. We couldn't have asked for better hosts! We could tell they really cared about us having a great experience while in Tokyo.

    This flat is tucked away in a beautiful, serene neighbourhood, very close to a convenience store, grocery store, several awesome cafes and restaurants, a post office, and a park. The nearest train station is maybe a 5-10 minute walk (a lovely walk, too). Then it's maybe 10 more minutes on the train straight to Shibuya! It's really the best of both worlds :) The flat was furnished with everything we needed, even things we didn't know we needed (pocket wifi was a godsend). Staying in the flat gave us a good idea of what it is like to actually LIVE in Tokyo for two weeks. Very cool! :)

    We really couldn't have imagined a better experience! Thanks so much Gilles and Mayumi, for making our trip truly magical <3

    Response from Gilles,Mayumi,Taiki:

    Glad you enjoyed and happy to know your trip was a great one.You are both young talented friendly people.

  • this flat was very well equiped and arranged, with a small kitchen providing everything you need. The small balcony was very appreciated, for morning breakfast or evening dinner. It was very quiet and we could rest properly during this week.

    The neighborhood is great ! like a village, (email hidden) from Shibuya or Shinjuku. I really loved the special athmosphere in this place, and enjoyed walking in the streets after a full day of walking in other busy areas in Tokyo. I would definitely go again.
    the pocket wifi was very useful! great device, Gilles !

  • We love this flat!! I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Tokyo. It's a great quiet neighbourhood very close to the amazing Shimokitazawa. The apartment was surprisingly big, very well layout and extremely clean. We stayed for seven days and it really felt like home.

    The host was very helpful and replied quickly to any questions I had. The flat was a little hard to find but Gilles met us and then explained every detail of the apartment. It was a perfect Airbnb experience. I would stay there again.

  • Gilles was extremely friendly and helpful and communicated well through the Airbnb site. The appartment was well equipped for all our needs, with basic but good cooking facilities. It is in a lovely quiet part of Tokyo but very easy to get into the centre by train and nice to come home to after busy days. It is only 15 mins walk to Shimokitazawa where we found good coffee (with soy even!) and a delicious vegetarian restaurant. The appartment comes with a portable pocket wifi which was absolutely fantastic for getting around. I would deffinitely stay there again.
