We apologize to you, for not writing this review longer ago and that we are doing this barely now.
But we really want to let everyone know how wonderful we felt during the time we spent at your cottage. From the first moment we found your place it was dreamy for us.
Where else could you feel peaceful and free if not as close as possible to the nature.
We realize that if we were to book a hotel or some more centered place, wouldn't have been able to experience everything we did.
We wouldn't find out that in Kyoto's mornings people love jogging or exercising on the sides of the river.
That at the noon they enjoy relaxing or taking a nap on a bench at the shadow of a tree and even under the bridges listening to the murmur of the river.
And when the night falls romance surrounds you from all the places.
Couples are being intimate and share their love at the relaxing sound of students musical instruments, that are practicing each day for becoming better.
Other groups giggling while they're playing with fireworks. Everyone says " hello" to you with open heart and gladness in their voices.
We really felt magnificent during our stay in Kyoto at your place. We are grateful to you for giving us the chance to experience this moments.
Do we recommend your place !? We definitely do ! We've been telling all our friends and all the people we know, about how beautiful the time in Kyoto was for us. How cozy we felt at your place and how wonderful it was that you could just get outside, sit on the side of the river and interact with the nature. No cars, no traffic noises, just pure serenity .
Thank you Yuko and Mike for your hospitality and please forgive us for not interacting with you as much as your other guests, but as you have noticed we were always outside from the morning until night exploring Kyoto and surroundings. Thank you for your help every time we needed, and for the maps you provided in the room, they were many times helpful. Also for providing us with the bikes . It made it so easy for us to make it quick for seeing the shows of the Tanabata festival, to visit Kyoto and some of the temples ( are still many left to be seen) .
We hope to see you again and we would love to Visit Kyoto sometime in the spring, since Kamo river looks amazing with all the bloomed trees.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much, and we are always very happy and grateful when someone has a good time in our city. You pointed out the most important points for us about living in this beautiful area as well. It is indeed something special to be so near to everything but at the same time, to have the sound of the river as you drift off to sleep.
We want to offer our guests the best of both worlds: privacy and comfort, with all the support you need to enjoy your time here.
And the people walking dogs, having picnics, and jogging down the riverside are right outside the door! If you happen to be an early riser it is a wonderful place to be for your morning stroll. Also the shops are just walking distance down past the first bridge. It was a pleasure to share our knowledge and information about the highlights of Kyoto with you, and certainly would love to see you again sometime.
Happy travels and all the best with everything!
