Very quiet and safe area. This apartment is located in the area mixed with luxurious and local vibes in Tokyo.
Surrounded by tons of small nice restaurants, you can enjoy the busy Tokyo by day, can come back to quiet room for the night! There are lots of expats living here in the area. So friendly place for tourists !
Some of my guests stay over 1 month and I believe this shows the quality of my apartment and the environment ;)
I am happy to answer any questions you have about my place or the area!
I am reachable by emails and calls and I like that from the guests as well.
It is very basic but No smoking and No big parties please. Otherwise, if you leave it clean, I have no other complaints :)
Was here for 5 days, Great place, Good location, super clean, quiet and easy instructions. Would stay here again.
Size is fine (1DK) for two, which is decent in Tokyo (especially Ebisu!)
Akane wasn't in Tokyo but super helpful and responded to my late bookin (booked for the next day) within 30 seconds! Thanks!
Akane's lovely apartment was the perfect place to finish our month long visit to Japan! An easy walk from Hiro-o station (if you don't have a lot of luggage like we did!) and plenty of places to eat, buy groceries, or pick up a snack. There is a wonderful bakery less than two blocks away for a quiet breakfast (one of the best lattes I had in Japan) and for those willing to walk a bit more, there is a municipal garden with a beautiful pond and numerous paths to explore.
The apartment is very clean and you can enjoy a bath at the end of a long day of visiting the sites (remember to shower first, then bathe). We did not use the kitchen (too many family reunion dinners to attend) but everything needed to cook at home is available...including a coffee machine that looks like it came out of the workshops that built Star Wars androids. The apartment is very quiet and secure.
But, the best part is working with Akane! We exchanged numerous messages, many just to keep in touch with our hectic schedule. Due to an unforeseen power outage, we had some trouble with hot water and wifi. Akane responded to our needs quickly and efficiently (even though she was in a different country/time zone), including a video call to walk us through the various buttons/dials to turn on. You would not get that personal attention at most hotels, let alone a rental.
I highly recommend this wonderful apartment and fantastic hostess.
Akane was not at home herself, actually nobody was :) but things were arranged perfectly. It was easy to get the key and communications with her through Airbnb were fast and accurate. Appartment was cosy and modern, would recommend a stay to anyone. Maximun for 3 persons I would say.
It was the second time for my husband and me to stay at Akane's place for 4 nights. We enjoyed staying at her place which is convenient, quiet and comfortable. We were impressed that she prepared a gift for us. She is a great host.
Akane's place was great for our group of 3! Her apartment has a main room that has the living room + kitchen, a bathroom w/ a in-unit washer, and then a bedroom room off the main room with a Japanese futon (think American futon sans the frame). My bf and I stayed in the bedroom and his brother stayed in the living room. There were lots of mattress pads in the closet for extra cushion.
The apartment was a ~9min walk to the Ebisu station, which was very convenient. There were also LOTS of cool bars and restaurants we found while walking to and from the station. There were also a few convenience stores on the way so we usually grabbed some breakfast sandwiches and coffee at those in the morning before starting our sight seeing each day.
Akane was one of the most responsive hosts I've ever had the pleasure of staying with! She wasn't even in Japan at that time and still responded in just a few hours to any questions we had. Really appreciated that. Would stay at her place again!
We enjoyed a very convenient 5-night stay in the apartment of Akane. For us it was the quite spot to recover in busy Tokio. You can reach all parts of the city easily and plunge well rested into the largest metropole on our planet. Communication with Akane was great, she is very responsive and helpful.
