The appartment is ideally situated in the middle of the most interesting area and the view is very beautiful. It is also very well connected to all Kyoto, so it was really easy to reach everything. Around the apartment there are restaurants, shops, ATM, etc. The host holds a coffee close to the apartment where you can go and ask for advises. I recommend this appartment.
We had a wonderful experience in Kyoto. Jackie and Dia's appartment is in a perfect spot, close to nice shops and restaurants, surrounded by charming streets. It's cozy and neat, and offered everything we needed for a pleasant stay. The view is a plus, breathtaking at any time of the day. Jackie was so helpful all the time, from inquiries before booking til checking out. I would certainly recommend this place!
A++ great hosts and place
We had a great stay! Jackie and Dia made every effort to make our stay comfortable, with clear notes and directions for where things were, extra blankets and towels for when we had a third friend stay, and just overall being very helpful. The location is FANTASTIC: you are literally 10minutes from kiyomizu-dera, 5m walk from mamecha and a beautiful neighborhood full of small alleys and little shops, and then 10m from shijo street, one of the major shopping areas in Gion. The bus was super accessible, and the neighborhood was safe and clean. The apartment itself was wonderful, very neat and clean and the view from the balcony is just beautiful. Would love to stay here again!
Jackie & Dia, who I fondly refer to as the Samurai Sisters, are the best. This is my second time renting this apartment, this time for 2 months, so that says alot. The view is extraordinary and the location is just about perfect. Some evenings, I would sit on the balcony for an hour just gazing at Yasaka Pagoda or Kiyomizu dera or Kyoto Station and Tower. I am almost afraid to write a good review as it will then endanger my ability to rent it whenever I want.
Great location. Close to bike hire. Excellent view. Great cafe 'Full House' down the road.
Super petit appartement. Vue effectivement magique et imprenable. Tout le confort y était et en plein coeur du vieux Kyoto. A peine arrivés nous sommes tombés sur 2 geishas qui Partaient travailler...pour les restos ce n'est pas le meilleur quartier qui est un peu excentré mais pour vivre le beau KYOTO c'est l'endroit idéal!
