I am a mom and a wife first.
I love traveling, going places that I haven't see before.

Lissa's place was perfect for us as a launching point to explore Tokyo and Yokohama. Very cozy, with helpful printed instructions on all the Japanese gadgets, and a full kitchen, which we used for cooking our breakfasts. Situated conveniently near Yokohama Station, it's an easy connection to the center of Tokyo, or other points in the region.
All went according to plan on arrival. We were met by the Apron Service lady with the key.
Apartment is very well located near Yokohama station and has a sunny aspect. Would recommend some updates such as lounge room blinds to be fixed and maybe a better shower. We experienced quite a few power blackouts. Wifi Internet is available but sometimes intermittent.
Contact with Lissa a bit delayed due she lives in USA and different time zone.
Overall the location was our major plus so we enjoyed our stay.
Was very impressed with the welcome we received and Mori-san helped us with everything we needed. Apartment is well located walking distance to the main Yokohama Train station and all the shopping you need. Quiet great neighborhood. Internet is a plus and washing machine. Everything you need for a short or long stay.
Lissa was very helpful and communicated with us for everything we needed. Will be our first choice if available next time in Yokohama.
We stayed at Lissa's apartment for a moth and had a great stay. It's a short walk from Yokohama station, very convenient and comfortable. As people mentioned, the apartment is nice and quiet and has most amenities you need. Our 10 months old son enjoyed to be on the spacious (as Japanese standard) terrace with green, crawling on the tatami room (he even took his first steps there:)! We really felt at home and would love to stay again when we go back to Yokohama.
Great apartment in a quite locale yet close to Yokohama station. There is a wide variety of shops and restaurants in the area. The apartment has a spacious living area and bathroom with a great balcony. The futons were comfortable and a memorable experience. The apartment met all our needs.
We loved Lissa's place. A great location near the Yokohama station on the 10th floor of a very quiet apartment. Includes all the amenities you need. The futons are very comfortable and we loved the big bath tub. Lots of interesting shops around but the Yokohama station has all you need and more from food shops, souvenirs, clothing, you name it. Our only problem was our internet didn't connect but I don't think it is necessarily the problem of the apartment but maybe our provider. (Canada) Lissa was more than helpful and available by e-mail at all times to help us with this. The only place we were able to get on line was at a nearby American hotel. We loved staying here and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Lissa
I stayed at Lissa's place for 6 nights to attend a business meeting. It was great - comfortable, cozy, and quiet. It is conveniently located near the Yokohama station. People who helped me check-in and -out are very helpful.
Our stay was easy, comfortable and pleasant. This apartment is like home away from home. Everything was accessible from affordable restaurants, fresh food ( fresh sushi, sashimi, beef, chicken, veggies, dairy etc.) coffee shops...nothing beats this location from Yokohama station. The apartment was big compared to most hotels in Japan. You can cook when you want to or can easily eat out anywhere in the area. Internet was good. I was able to use FaceTime easily to the US and speak with my family. I will surely come back here again the next time I visit Yokohama. Thank you Lissa for sharing your home to us. It was such a wonderful two weeks of ramen training :). Til the next spring!
My family and I enjoyed a week in this apartment, and it's probably the best accommodation we've stayed in while in Japan. It is absolutely fully self contained to the extent that the kitchen is well stocked with all the little things that you'd really rather not buy. The washing machine and balcony on which to dry clothes allowed a comfortable stay. The apartment has heating, a nice big furo and all you need to sleep comfortably. Very importantly, it has a fast, reliable wifi connection that made life so much easier. In terms of location, it could not be more convenient - few minutes walk from Yokohama station and all the shops you could ever need. It was spotlessly clean. Dealing with the host was an absolute pleasure too. All communications were clear and quick. We'll definitely be back.
Another great week-long stay in Yokohama.
And lucky to be there during Cherry-Blossom Season!
Staying a Lissa's is like coming home. It was my third time and even my VERY late arrival at Haneda did not cause a problem. Since I am a returnee, she left the key for me at the condo. I let myself in sometime around midnight . . .
I remembered to turn on the water-heater and the refrigerator.
See my previous reviews for why I love this place.
If any of you want to experience the cherry-blossom season next year, I have a recommendation: take the Keihin-Kyuko (KQ) train south from Yokohama Station to Gumyogi Station (sixth station from Yokohama). Cross the tracks and go downhill through the shopping district and AMASS picnic supplies.
Keep going downhill until you hit the river and the cherry trees that line it. Big, mature, fully blooming trees. Turn left and look for a good spot under the trees and eat your food. You can remain up on the street level or go down to the banks of the gently flowing water. If you do not enjoy this, you are not human.
You will need to walk off the picnic. Walk north (northeast) along the river in the general direction back towards Yokohama. The river will be lined with staggering rows of cherry-blossom-heavy branches draping over the river. There are many temporary refreshment and entertainment stands along the way. It's even more fun (and pretty) at night, when all is lit up. Go as far as Koganecho (about a kilometer), where the KQ Station is just across the river. Then you can take the train back to Yokohama (three stops).
Yokohama and its miles of waterfront is so much more accessible than Tokyo and has an easier feel for what makes Japan so special for visitors. The Japanese people are such great hosts. I always feel welcome.
Thank you Lissa for your special hospitality.
Always a pleasure to host Lissa
Great person!! Excellent communication, will always have her back.
