Australian/Thai . As an owner of this property , I welcome guests from all over the world,
The apartment was great—cheery, clean and roomy. We loved the neighborhood. Just a walk across the red bridge and we were in Asakusa, our favorite neighborhood in Tokyo.
All our meals were made in the apartment. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook our food.
Our four-night stay at Retro Tokyo, before we left Japan at the end of our glorious trip, was a perfect send-off.
Clean and all self sufficient, 10 minutes to Asakusa station. Flexible host and a great communicator. What more can I ask for.
Bumped into a couple of neighbors and they are so nice and helpful. Everyone is friendly!
The Tokyo Sytree is within a nice 20 minutes walk. The Tokyo bananas are a must to buy for your friend and families at home.
One big thing i don;t see anyone mentioning about this apartment is that the train station a couple of minutes walk from the apartment whisk you directly to Narita at a significantly cheap price.
Had a wonderful time. The apartment was exactly as described. The location was perfect. Ben, Marek and Miyuki were very gracious and helpful. Highly recommend this place.
Nice room, 5 mins walk to Toei Asakusa or Ginza line station. Wake up to a view of SkyTree. What more can I ask for!!
Our family (including kids aged 3 and 5) had an amazing stay at Retro Tokyo. The hosts, Ben and Miyuki, have thought of everything and have really taken all the extra little steps to make a stay in this apartment comfortable and enjoyable.
The apartment is not very big but the space is cleverly used and we felt very comfortable there. There is a washing machine and clothes rack, TV, DVD player and a thoughtful collection of DVDs, some books and magazines and even colouring books and crayons for the kids. The kitchen is well equipped and there were some condiments for our use in the fridge when we arrived.
Retro Tokyo is also in a great location. We walked to the Sky Tree through interesting neighbourhoods; we were across the bridge from a great shopping and eating district in Asakusa; and the apartment is across the road from a convenience store and bakery.
We would recommend this as a great place to stay and would not hesitate to stay here again if we are lucky enough to return to Tokyo.
My family and I had a very comfortable week at the Retro Modern Apt in Central Tokyo. It was extremely convenient to lots of great Tokyo sightseeing spots. Ben and his staff tried very hard to make sure we were comfortable and were friendly and easily accessible
We had a little problem with the internet but they got right on it and it was fixed quickly.
This is the second of Ben's properties I stayed in and again, I would highly recommend him for an easy, convenient and comfortable "home away from home."
We really enjoyed a lovely week at the Elegant Kyoto Townhouse in Gion. There was plenty of room for us to spread out, and it was very convenient to Kyoto station. I highly recommend it. A very nice home.
Really, really loved our stay in this gorgeous laneway house. Couldn't fault it. Neighbourhood made it _ not touristed, felt like we were immersed in the real Japan. House was very comfortable_ we'll head back again, next time for a much longer stay. Easy communication with Ben; loads of great hints on where to go when we arrived; and lovely local neighbours.
Nice Villa, clean, full of amenities and friendly staffs. Ben is know how to please his guess. I highly recommend Ben's villas.
Thank you for making our holiday perfect! :)
This is hardly the case, but the villa looked better than in the pictures. My friends and I stayed at Ben's villa very comfortably. The outdoor showers allow you to take a bath under the stars, while the pool area is great to just hang out over a couple of beers. Cooking facilities were available and Gede was a great host, taking care of anything we might need help with such as transport or refilling drinking water. The location could be better, but given how wonderful the villa is, my friends and I agree that it was all worth the traveling. Would definitely recommend this lovely place!
We loved having Ben and his family stay with us at villa Tully.
Ben booked the villa for his mother and her friends. All went smoothly, no pb at all.
I would be very happy to host them again.
We only got to know Ben & his family on their arrival day but we can say that they are very friendly & open-minded. Especially his 2 kids & the cat are lovely!!
I've known Ben for almost 15 years and can happily recommend his places to anyone. Ben is a world traveller in style and his beautiful house in Bali reflects his personality. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend his house to anyone traveling to Bali with friends and families alike.
