I'm an American, living in Osaka, Japan, engaged to a wonderful Chinese girl. We both really love travelling, dogs, and food (especially street food.)

We had a great stay in the apartment. It's location is great, just off the main shopping st with plenty of shops and restaurants within a few mins walk. The place was nice and clean and Jesse very helpful. The portable wifi was also a nice touch.
Jesse was a very welcoming and helpful host. He definitely knows Kyoto and can recommend places to eat, drink and visit. We went out for beers and dinner the last night I was in Kyoto and had a blast.
The place is exactly like it appears in the photos - it has a kitchen, bathroom and shower on the first floor, bedroom on the second floor and living room on the third floor. I think I was the first visitor there so it was freshly (website hidden) heaters keep it warm in the winter (I was there in February). I think the only issue is that it's a bit inconvenient to go up and down stairs to get between the bedroom and bathroom, but it's not a major issue.
It's about a 30-minute walk (or two train stops) from Gion and pretty central to getting around by bus or train to the best shrines. Perfect for a single visitor or couple, and can be turned into a two bedroom if needed, though for larger parties I think Jesse has a 3-bedroom that's more spacious.
Jesse was very helpful during our trip to Kyoto. The house is super cozy with a large comfortable area and a fantastic location which have easy access to subway and bus station that were one street across from the house.
The house has loads of space to hold up more than 6 ppl and it was a great arrangement for Jesse with setting up futon and advice for traveling around the city.
We could not ask for a better place for us to stay which make our trip much wonderful.
Lee all have a good time and I am pretty sure will visit the place and Jesse again in the future. Totally recommend jesse and his place to everyone.
We really enjoyed our stay in Jesse's house which located in a quiet and nice neighbourhood. The house is grand and clean, just as the pictures in the profile. The location is perfect, 5 minutes walk to Shijo Station 3 minutes to bus stop. The host left us some tour guides and restaurant recommendation. The house made our stay in Kyoto perfect, thanks a lot, Mr. and Mrs. Schlaud.
Jesse was very helpful leading up to and during our stay at Kyoto. He recommended some great restaurants, interesting bars and local attractions. The house was quite large and comfortable, however it was a little cold (we visited in January) the heaters in the bedrooms were great, but some of the communal areas were a little nippy! In saying that, we had a really good time and totally recommend Jesse and his place.
Jesse was extremely helpful during our short stay at Kyoto. A really lovely cozy 2 storey home at a fantastic location, easy access from the Shijo and Karasuma stations. A 7 Eleven store is only a stone throw away. Our party of seven stayed at his place comfortably.
Jesse and his beautiful wife proved that he was the best host! At the very last minute, he accepted a tight booking for us came into town last minute. They were met with open arms and the apartment was all set up and spotless. We came here to sign an important business deal and found the living area, with the numerous sofas, ideal for us to make our business associates welcome. The apartment is literally above the station, and is right in the heart of the action. We could all go out and enjoy Kyoto Omiya and Shijo Street's many delicious eateries, and not have to worry about getting back. We had all amenities, so we really didn't need to bring anything other than our clothes. I would not hesitate to book one of Jesse's apartments!
방은 꽤 아담하고 깔끔합니다.
필요한 기구 (헤어드라이어, 전자레인지 등)는 거의 다 있구요
이층 침대는 4명이서 자기에 충분한 크기입니다.
설명도 자세해서 찾아가는데 아무 문제 없었습니다.
역에서의 거리도 꽤 가깝구요
Jesse was an excellent host, quick with responses while we negotiated the deal, providing a wealth of information to help us plan our trip and making time to be at the house to greet our arrival and offer loads of really good advice on what to prioritise seeing and doing (including some great ideas that we hadn't heard of before and telling us EXACTLY where to go for successful Geisha spotting). His clear and accurate directions to the house were also appreciated with our heavy luggage!
The house was decadent for only 5 of us, with loads of space in the 3 big bedrooms (which could easily sleep 12 people between the combination of futons and Western beds available) and a separate dining room and cosy comfy lounge. All the furnishings are new and modern, charmingly contrasting the traditional home.
We could not have asked for a better location, just off the main road, walking distance to main sights and easily able to get anywhere with subway and rail options on our doorstep.
Jesse and his fiancee, now wife! were here for their wedding so kept quite busy. I met them upon arrival. Nice couple. Communication with Jesse was very smooth and easy.
Great guests. Highly recommended.
