We are a family with two young children and stayed here at Kelly and Ryoko Itoh's place and could not have been happier. The house was clean, large, nicely decorated and a home away from home! We arrived to find fresh flowers and fruit, which was so nice after a long trip from DC. Ryoko went out of her way to help us with great suggestions for places to go and things to do, and even helped us get reservations at an onsen, which was a perfect little getaway. The kids really enjoyed having their own room and space to play with their toys, and having a well stocked kitchen and a washer/dryer made the trip run smoothly and effortlessly. I would HIGHLY recommend this house for rental, as the hosts can not be beat, the location is amazing (walking distance to grocery, restaurants, JR, Metro and parks), and the home feels so cozy and sweet. Thank you so much for making our trip so pleasant and memorable!!
