Overview

Kyoto House Rental Photos and Description

A comfortable and cozy home in Kyoto! * CONVENIENT * QUIET * SAFE * WARM *

The concept of KiYOMiZU ViLLA is a home in Kyoto, Japan where you can enjoy all the amazing culture that Japan has to offer with all of the comforts of home.

The whole house was completely redesigned leaving, of course maintaining the original structure and architecture. When renovating, we discovered a beautiful ceiling with fantastic beams hidden behind years and years of plaster. The original 'tsuchi-kabe' earthen walls were also preserved and still exist, though they cannot be seen because the house has been fully insulated. There is a heated floor in the living and dining room. All of the windows are triple paned and there is a beautiful safe, new kitchen and bath available to you.

There are 2 bedrooms (separately accessible) upstairs with a skylight in the stairway for a little more natural light.

Amenities include a 70inch 4K ultraHD TV connected to a PlayStation3 and AppleTV. There are some games, bluerays & DVDs as well a selection of music for you to enjoy.

The living room has massive windows with nice blinds in front to let in lighting from outside or give you privacy when you need. All the windows are triple-paned to give you that extra bit of quiet. Enjoy sitting on the sofas while you enjoy your morning coffee from the Nespresso Coffee machine.

The neighbourhood is extremely safe and the neighbours are just sweet. The location of the house is just right. It is within walking distance to a plethora of tourist spots as well as local Japanese hangouts. You'll find temples, shrines, parks, restaurants, bars and shopping all nearby. It is also easily accessible via Bus, Train, Taxi or rickshaw driver.

KiYOMiZU Villa is located 5 mins away from Miyagawa-cho, one of the 5 Geisha districts in Kyoto. You can see Maiko-sans walking on the nearby streets daily.

Come and enjoy your stay in Kyoto in 5 Star luxury at KiYOMiZU Villa.

About Ken

I grew up in Canada, went to school in Boston and have spent the last 15 years of my life in Kyoto. I fell in love with this city, its temples, shrines and festivals within my first few years here and do believe that I I will be spending the rest of my life in this beautiful and magical city.

Ken purchased this house in 2013

Why Ken chose Kyoto

This house is very close to Gion and Kiyomizu temple, the inspiration for the name. Within minutes of this house, you can find Maiko & Geisha wandering the street, restaurants, bars, temples and shrines. This house is in a wonderful area with amazing neighbours around the house. The house is easily accessible in a quiet and safe neighbourhood.

What makes this house unique

The house was built from ground up yet keeping the original structure. Insulation, triple paned glass, heated floors, high speed internet and the ultimate in comfort and amazing attention to detail were the inspiration for this house. When you're on vacation in another country, why not treat yourself to a wee bit of luxury when you come back from spending a day out sightseeing.

The comforts of 5 STAR luxury in traditional settings.

Great place, great location,

  • 5 of 5
I actually live in Kyoto and I booked this place for my parents. I knew the location was good, as I wanted somewhere they could check out some sights, and also be close to home for a rest. The actual house was brilliant. Very comfortable for them; great TV, kitchen, showers etc, and heated floors( something that really makes a difference). They loved Kyoto, and I have no doubt the comfort they enjoyed here added to that.

Beautiful house/neighborhd, English-speaking host

  • 5 of 5
As the first visitors to this beautifully remodeled old-style Japanese home, we recommend it without reservations. It's got all new appliances and a very usable living space downstairs, along with tatami rooms and nice, thick futons upstairs. The host speaks English perfectly and answered many questions for us during our stay, even dropping by to bring us things we needed. The home is in a lovely narrow alley full of similar wooden homes and has no traffic noise. Despite that, it's just a minute's walk from a main street of town and not far from Kiyomizu Temple, a common sight-seeing destination, and the Gion geisha neighborhood for great nightlife. It's an easy walk to several bus stops, a bike rental store, a river which has paths alongside and runs all through the city, and even a grocery store. The kitchen has enough pans and utensils to prepare a simple meal and has a full-sized refrigerator and freezer, stove, microwave and Nespresso coffee maker. We loved our week's stay in this home-away-from-home and hope you do, too!

KiYOMiZU ViLLA is just pure comfort. Make this your base when you arrive in Kyoto. The house located in an old, sweet neighborhood down a tiny street off the main road. The neighbors are sweet, old and very friendly. The house is a 15 min walk to downtown Kyoto. Kiyomizu temple is literally just up the street (about 1 km away) as are a dozen other attractions including shrines, parks, museums, temples and hiking spots.

There are of course, a plethora of dining options as well as many bars all within walking distance.

Notes:
The house was rebuilt from ground up leaving only the beautiful frame, roof and support beams. The house is completely insulated and all of the windows have been replaced with beautiful triple paned windows for year round energy efficiency and peace and quiet for you and the neighbours. The new stairway is quite safe. It is now wider and less steep. The bath area and toilet are quite modern. The kitchen is more than functional and offers a safe IH stove for your cooking needs. There are air conditioners and heaters throughout and the floor in the living room is heated. Kyoto is famous for its gruelling summers and harshly cold winters. Kyoto homes are even more famous for their lack of comfortability. KiYOMiZU Villa offers you a Japanese home with all of the luxuries of western living.
