Me and my friend Elisa stayed at Laurel's place for two nights, it was a lovely experience.
The location is super convenient and quiet, just 10 minutes walk from Ponto Cho and Downtown Kyoto. Public transport is close-by (bus stop just in front of the building, train station 5 mins walk).
The apartment is bright and airy, with a lovely patio overlooking Kyoto river and surrounding hills - always nice to enjoy such a view as you wake up or to chill-out after a long day.
Laurel and Shunji are perfect hosts: they made us feel comfortable and treated us all the time (Laurel was so kind as to prepare goodie bags - with the perfect travel kit). They were super informative, still they allowed us quiet and privacy.
We really enjoyed staying at their place and the time spent together chatting at breakfast or over a good cup of tea. Speaking of which - what a breakfast! The first day we tried Western and the second we had Japanese style (strongly recommended!). All freshly cooked and prepared for us.
This is the perfect place for those travellers who are willing to turn their holiday into an experience worth sharing.
Thanks Laurel and Shunji!
I took her house last Saturday with my family during our kyoto trip.
She and her husbund was very nice and friendly also considerate.
It would be unforgettable trip in my life. Her house had so nice view that was beyond description.
And she considered about how we feel and what we want constantly.
Besides she prepared something special gift for us.
And They offered good Japan style breakfast, special tea.
It was awesome. If you go to laurel's house I'm sure you wouldn't be regret.
P.S: Due to her considerate explain for trip we could had a good trip in kyoto. Thanks laurel, her husbund
It was a pleasure to have Laurel as my guest. Everything run smoothly. The communication was great and they took care of the apartment leaving it clean and tidy. I definitely recommend her!
Laurel is a really nice person! Extremely friendly and smiley, we had a lot of fun during the check in and looks like we were friend since long time!
Clean, polite and respectful we really recommend her!
Thank you so much Andrea & Mayumi! You sure made it easy to be smiling with your marvellous suite and great helpfulness. The only regret I have is that I didn't have a chance to get to know you both better! Maybe next visit to Kyoto?
Laurel and her partner is very nice people. And Laurel's mom is very beautiful. Welcome to my home. See u next time.
Laurel, Shunji and Maria are wonderful guests. They were quiet, considerate and took great care of our home. This was a quick visit to San Diego, as Laurel was presenting at a conference. We hope that Laurel and her family will return to enjoy all of the great sites San Diego has to offer.
Laurel and her relatives were a pleasure to host. Though they only spent one day with me, we did get to know each other and share a lot of common experiences and interests. They were all very clean and respectful of the property and I'd recommend her to any future host.
Laurel was an ideal guest with me. Friendly, courteous and easy to talk to. I enjoyed having her as a guest and she is welcome to stay anytime. I highly recommend for anyone considering hosting. Thank you!
Wonderful! Open, fun, intelligent and sincere. It was a short but intense and interesting hosting. Laurel is a new member of the family. She and her cohort Shunju were terrific guests; considerate, interactive and thoughtful. They were caring of us and the flat, took the time to read about me, the place, and the house needs and attended to those factors. They also took hold of the city and really enjoyed it which is great to see happen. I am awaiting their return. Anytime.
I have known Laurel for 3 years now from church and we currently sing in a gospel choir together. she is a very honest, smart, caring and respectful individual. she is very reliable and fun to hang out with.
I have known Laurel for over a year, including staying together in NYC and her hosting me in Montreal. She's kind, respectful, and responsible--great as a host or guest.
Laurel Hart is a good friend of mine. She is responsible and reliable; respectful and a caring individual; and follows through on her word. Laurel is a honest spirit full of an embrace for life.
She's welcomed me and friends whom she had not met before into her home on multiple occasions and hosted with grace and a smile. In addition to being a top-notch host, she is a communicative, joyous, and understanding guest.
