Delightful, spacious home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of 8 women aged 30s to 60s & we absolutely loved this house. We had plenty of space, 3 western style single beds with the rest futons on tatami mats. All beds were warm & comfortable. House was very clean & had everything we needed. Wifi never failed. The bathroom & laundry facilities are outside the house proper at the back, but this didn't bother us at all. The separate vanity units with mirrors (2) was convenient for such a large group of women. Likewise, the separate toilets (2), were conveniently separate from each of the bathrooms. One bathroom has a bath with shower, while the other has a shower only. Plenty of hot water. There was also a separate urinal. There is a lovely private garden at the back, along with the tea room which we didn't use. Once we got our bearings, we found it in a convenient location for catching trains, including the little train to Arashiyama. There's a convenience store (Lawsons) just a block away, on the corner of the major street that runs into the city centre/shopping district. To get there, our taxi driver had to phone the owner for directions, despite us having the address (little street). So, I suggest guests keep all details very handy when trying to get to the house & for when you travel outside it. We took photos on our phone of the streets at the intersection where the Lawsons store is on the main street, & found these were immediately recognised by taxi drivers. The owner was always prompt in replying to any queries I had in making the booking. We had no issues at all during our stay & our entire group loved the house. Highly recommended.

Good location and lots of space

  • 5 of 5
The location is very convenient (5-7 mins walk to 2 train stations). The Machiya is very big, so definitely enough for 4-6 pax. It was well equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and all necessary amenities. The many bathrooms and vanities were great. However, the bathrooms being outside the main Machiya was tricky....just run!

Mimi was very responsive with all my enquiries. There was a slight problem during check-in...which we really couldn't tell if we were told ahead of time! The cleaners couldn't clean the place properly due to some plumbing issues but Mimi was fantastic. She emailed, called and sms-ed to alert us of this issue. We dropped our bags and the cleaners then did a thorough clean up.

I definitely will recommend this Machiya for a family or a group of 4-7 pax. As I write this review, I have already contacted the owner for my next trip.

Comfortable, Traditional and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely traditional Japanese Machiya to rent when you stay in Kyoto. We were 7 people and our group included teenagers. The 2 bathrooms are fantastic with plenty of hot water and showering/bathing every morning was a great start to the day. The kitchen has everything you need. The beds both Japanese style and western are comfortable. Renting this house was easy as Mimi is helpful and friendly. The house is centrally located and the station is only a short walk away. A fantastic find!

A lovely week-end in a charming Kyoto Machiya

  • 5 of 5
Spent 2 nights with a group of 7 friends (almost all Japanese residents) and had great time in this charming traditional Machiya. Very spacious, well equiped, good location in a lively neighborhood with easy access to city center, very nice and beautiful little garden, excellent and confortable sleeping arrangements, definitely a place to come back. Was not in charge of organizing this week-end but understand the owner has been very nice and accomodating, just like this home :)
