Lovely cottage for two.

It's always a little difficult assessing what a rental home will be like just from photos over the internet, but in this instance the difference between reality and the photos favoured reality - photos just can't capture how well this machiya has been renovated, or what a lovely place it is to stay. Firstly, it's in a great location - very easy to walk to Kyoto station, and a number of bus routes [to the Silver Temple, Ohara and more] go from almost outside the front door. That said, it's actually down a tiny little side street, and so is very quiet and tucked away - really out of the hustle and bustle of things - very important for the baby's sleep! Very comfy beds; loved the bath, which we soaked in for hours each evening; thoughtful touches like tea and coffee provided. I appreciated things like the beautiful sinks - clearly made by artisan craftsmen - but the whole house feels very well crafted - traditional, but with all the mod cons. Appreciated the fact that the house was serviced whilst we were there, and that there was someone on hand to call if we had any questions or problems. We will definitely use this company's houses again if we return to Kyoto, though may go for two bedrooms next time as the baby gets older. I highly recommend if visiting Kyoto!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your heartfelt compliments. It means a lot to hear such kind and encouraging comments. We take great pride in the little details so it’s really rewarding when someone takes note of the craftsman’s touch or the extra amenities we offer. We look forward to your next visit and seeing how big the baby has grown! Take care. Warm regards.
