GREAT STAY IN OUTER KYOTO

  • 5 of 5
This place was great! It was our third trip to Kyoto and our first staying somewhere other than a hotel. Worth it.

Firstly, the communication with Hiro, the manager, was excellent. He was able to help us out in not time at all if there was any sort of problem. Not that we really had any. And Toshi, the owner, was just so awesome. Greeting us with a huge smile in his Kombi-van at the station and then giving us a quick tour of the area surrounding the apartment. Then so happy to see us and hear of our travel tales while we were staying there, as he picked us up once again to then see us off at the station.

The apartment itself was nestled away in such a beautiful and quite neighborhood. Very easy to get to the shops, about 5-10 minute walk. There is a pharmacy, supermarket and a couple of 24hr convenience stores, all within reasonably close vicinity to each other.

The apartment is quite spacious for those that are used to hotels. Going by other places that I have stayed throughout Japan this place is huge. As the pictures show, there is one bedroom with a double bed, one with two single beds, and a tatami room with two mattresses. For those traveling in the cooler times of year, there is adequate heating via a gas heater. One thing that was a blessing was a washer-dryer. No need to hang clothes outside!

For those that are expecting to get around on a JR West rail pass, just be aware that the closest train station is not JR. The closest JR station is Saga-arashiyama.

Unfortunately, I didn't to spend much time in the area. I would have really enjoyed seeing Toshi's cultural property and some of the temples off the beaten path.

I would stay here again. It was a great apartment, Hiro and Toshi were great to deal with. I would certainly recommend this place to just about anyone.

RELAXING STAY IN WESTERN KYOTO

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing week in this comfortable condo on the western outskirts of Kyoto.

Toshi picked us up from Arashiyama station in his VW combi van and showed us round the area, and we enjoyed looking through his ancestral home later on in our stay. The condo is in quiet, friendly neighbourhood and has everything you need. The beds are quite firm but the quilts so light and warm. It was handy having a computer, and a phone to contact Hiro if we needed to. Easy walking distance to a large supermarket and the train station (only 20 minutes into centre of Kyoto).

We went for walks through the local neighbourhood and along the wooded hillsides and visited temples which were very peaceful and uncrowded. Lots of walking in Arashiyama and central Kyoto, and did a day trip to Nara - loved the deer wandering through the park. Train travel everywhere was very easy as the stations had their names in English as well, and there was always someone who would offer to help if you looked a little lost or were not sure how to use the ticket machines.

The JR Haruka limited express to and from Kansai Airport was excellent and combined with an Icoca card which you can use in Osaka and Kyoto, very good value.

We loved our stay here - hope we can come back one day!

KYOTO WEST CONDOMINIUM

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this condo for 3 weeks and it has been a really nice experience. The place is very quite and confortable, and Hiro and Toshie were very helpful. It is in the west side of the city, normally less known, but very convenient to travel to the city centre and east side, and, above all, to know some magical places in this side, for example, Kokereda temple, at walking distance, and, for us, the most beatifull temple in Kyoto (¡¡), or the bambu forest in the back of the house we I went to jogging.

We were travelling with our two little daughters and thet got friends in neighbourhood. We really recommend the place!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We’re happy to hear that you and your family had such a wonderful time. Kokedera or moss temple is truly breathtaking, but not a lot of people know of it, despite it being a world heritage site. Kyoto has so many hidden places of interest to visit. We hope that you come back soon to explore more of the city and to say hi to your friends.

WONDERFUL HOME, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
What can I say, this house came with everything we needed: great location, more than enough space for 7 of us, wonderful owner, nice neighbors, and peace and quiet. Originally, I was worried that this house would be too far from the main attractions in Kyoto, but as it turned out, it was in the best location possible. Away from the busy city, my family got to experience the quieter side of Kyoto and we really appreciated that after long days out sightseeing. This location came with some very nice surprises that included hidden temples right down the street that the general public must not be too aware of because we had them all to ourselves. The temple of bamboo was the hightlight of my trip to Japan. Never have I been to a more magical place. Also, Arashiyama is only a short distance away and it was spectacular. The home itself was very nice and had every ammenity that we could possibly need including wonderful shampoo and body wash. The owner was very helpful and nice and we loved being picked up in his VW vintage van. We had a wonderful stay and when I come back to Kyoto, I would most definitely stay at this house again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying at Kyoto West Condo. We always enjoy welcoming guests and sharing with them rare glimpses of authentic Kyoto that are often overlooked in most mainstream tour guidebooks. I’m happy to hear that you had a really great time, and I have to say the temple of bamboos is also a personal favorite of mine. We look forward to welcoming you again on your next visit to Kyoto and will be sure to pick you up in the VW vintage van, of course!! Happy Holidays!

A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY.

  • 5 of 5
From start to end, this was the ideal place for us.

I stayed at the Kyoto West Condo with my family of four adults, and even though we were mentally prepared for cramped quarters given the nature of Japanese living, we never had space issues. The house could easily take another two adults with regards to bedding. Everything was clean.

The house includes free access to the internet via a laptop and use of a mobile phone for contacting management. A washing machine meant we didn't have to go to coin laundromats and the television was a great way to unwind after a long day. Anything else we needed or wanted was in walking range, and public transport via the train system was cheap and convenient. Bicycles were provided for us to get around if need be.

The neighbourhood is quiet, and the neighbours are nice people who are used to foreigners coming and going. You are sure to get a greeting every time you pass them on the street. The house is on a hill, so I probably wouldn't reccommend it for guests with disabilities.

Toshi and Hiro were wonderful to us, very understanding and flexible whenever something didn't quite go as planned. They also take the time to help with any details of your stay that you might be unsure of. Although we arrived very late at the nearest station after our flight into Japan, Toshi came to pick us up with a smile and Hiro was very warm and welcoming. If you don't speak Japanese, English is okay. Toshi presented us on arrival with a folder of instructions on how to use utilities and local places of interest, all in English.

Toshi's cultural property is amazing, and a very unique experience. To be honest, I can't think of anywhere else we would have had this opportunity, it was the highlight of our trip.

We had a great time in Kyoto, and this is largely because of our stress-free stay at Kyoto West Condo. This was my best experience by far with Japanese landlords as a frequent traveler to Japan.
