  • 5 of 5

It's a bit embarrassing to award such a high star-rating, but my wife and I just finished a three-week stay in this apartment and loved it. The unit (404) is quiet and well-located, with a great canal view. This is the top floor of a four-story apartment building that combines short-term rentals and permanent residents. There are many neighborhood attractions, and the area isn't teeming with tourists. The apartment is also spacious by Japanese standards, with a kitchen that we used regularly. Ana is a knowledgeable and helpful host, always available via a cell phone provided in the unit. The only minor negative is the need to climb a steep staircase to the fifth-floor bedroom/terrace; we got used to this quickly but think less-fit tenants would find it troublesome.

Wonderful stay with wonderful people. The Heien residence team was available whenever we needed help and advise. The personal concierge Mrs. Anna Roses is delightful, welcoming, forth coming with recommendations for sights, restaurants and travel arrangements. The apartment is bright, comfortable, well equipped and spotless. The location is prefect. We enjoyed every minute there. Thanks again, we will be back!
