My best friend and I reserved this air bnb for our first stay in Tokyo. Despite Shelley's good reviews, unfortunately we did not have the best experience with this host. Before our arrival, she made us feel uncomfortable by asking us personal questions about our age and occupatio…

Response from Shelley:
A bit slanted review. Rio, who booked the room, was told by myself that I am concerned about noise being caused in the neighbourhood, which all of my guests are informed of. I was assured that she and her friend were coming for the culture and food. I also clearly communicated that I live in the house and need to know who is coming. I question all guests as to what they want to do in Tokyo to make sure they are coming to the right area and to ensure they won't incur large taxi fares in getting home at night, are in the right area they want to be in and I try to find a fit with other guests living in the house at the same time. I was lied to about the occupation of the girls and it was embarrassing to have to apologise to my neighbours for someone's behaviour that was staying in my house. Rio was not apologetic about her behaviour and the inconvenience, and loss of sleep, she caused others. Other guests in the house also complained to me of her behaviour. All in all, it was quite an unpleasant experience which I will ensure will not happen again - to my guests, my neighbours and myself. My review of Rio was certainly not advising others to host her.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to start our travels in Japan. Shelley's place was cozy and comfortable, and she had great recommendations on where we should eat, sightsee, and travel next.

Shelley's place is an excellent home base in Tokyo. The neighborhood is very cute and lively, but the house itself is located on a quiet residential street. It's a very short walk to a lot of great restaurants, bars, and the subway (a convenient ride to anywhere else in Tokyo!) S…

I absolutely loved everything about Shelley's place. It's in the quiet residential area, close to train station (approximately 10 minutes walk) and many local restaurants and convenience stores around. It's only 1 stop from Shibuya station (not JR line tho). Shelley will answer a…
