The Tara house was awesome! It's less than 2 years old and is a spacious property in Japanese standards. There are two bedrooms with Western beds that are very comfortable and a traditional tatami room if you want to go the futon route. The owner is easily accessible if you need him. It is a located a short walk from the station and a convenience store. There aren't a ton of places to eat right around there and some information on that would be helpful. Such a great stay!!
We are a family of 5, so our biggest challenge was finding a centrally located place to stay in Kyoto that could accommodate us all comfortably. Our host, Kazuya's apartment ticked all the boxes in what we were seeking. It isn't a very large apartment, but it was spacious enough with the soda bed downstairs and the very modern and intelligently designed kitchen and bathroom which made it very comfortable. We were close to the station which was 1 stop away from the central station, so getting to all the sights was easy.
Great house just right for our family of 6. Great location easy to access subway and all attractions. Very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend it to others. Neat neighborhood and great access to bike along the river.
Very new and clean house. Just nice for 6 people. Very good location. Easy access to train station and eateries. Near attractions too.
The place was excellent for a family, quiet, clean and 5 minute wake to train station. Two supermarkets in the nearby made shopping very easy. Very helpful host, everything we needed was provided. Greeting and thank you!
We were very glad to have chosen to stay in a house rather than a hotel - it was so much more convenient. Tara House is close to a railway station, one stop from Kyoto central station on the JR line and also on the Keihan line which transports you easily to major temples, shopping and eating districts. Getting around by train and even bus is simple. The house itself is quiet, clean and well kept, our host was available when needed. It was also easy to keep warm which was important as we had a few bitterly cold days,. Make sure you visit Tofukuji temple which is 10 minutes walk away and if you like Indian food and want a change from Japanese, try the restaurant Kathmandu about 5 mins walk from the house (near the station on the road to the temple). We were very happy with our choice of house.
