Meguro House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 7 guests

Private and exclusive. Designed by the owner/architect, the house is located in the sought-after residential area of Ebisu/Meguro. Family-friendly in terms of layout, spaciousness, and location. Open and airy with natural lights and colors throughout, the house is a beautiful expression of clean minimalism with modern yet warm aesthetic.

Walk within minutes to Westin Hotel (an airport Limousine Bus stop to/from airports), subway stations (Ebisu Station and Meguro Station with multiple subway lines, including JR Yamanote Line directly to popular designations without transfers), 6 supermarkets, convenience stores, , Ebisu Garden Place, and Mitsukoshi Department Store (with an upscale food market on the B2 level) . Just one stop to Shibuya and four stops to Shinjuku on JR Yamanote Line. Area map with recommendations to neighborhood places will be provided.

The house is constructed with reinforced concrete in 2009 for our family. Enjoy all three floors of spacious living space, with two full baths on separate levels for complete privacy (and no more queuing for the bathroom while on vacation!). A truly modern, wonderfully appointed house in the heart of Tokyo! Perfect for families looking for a little luxury and with good design in mind! :)

About Lillian

We moved to Tokyo a few years ago from the U.S.. Being an architect, we decided to build our own house there with a layout and atmosphere that best suit our life style by combining the western style with Japanese elements.

Lillian purchased this house in 2009

Why Lillian chose Japan

We absolutely love the location and this lovely neighborhood. Unlike most typical central Tokyo houses, we have a unique lot with openness and sunlight from all directions. We designed and built our home just over in 2009 and it has been immaculately maintained. The house has been published in several architectural/ interior magazines and has won an architectural design award. Due to our move, we are pleased to offer it to travelers visiting Tokyo.

What makes this house unique

Other than the superb location, we enjoyed the light-filled spaces throughout the house with modern yet warm ambiance. The Meguro River nearby is a very popular cherry blossom destination with spectacular view of the sakura trees along the river. Strolling or jogging along the canal is another activity to enjoy. We especially love the convenience of walking to Ebisu Garden Place with the spacious ground for kids to run around and for family dining with endless choices. Meguro Station area offers more local/traditional food and atmosphere. You can also walk to the trendy Nakameguro/Daikanyama area within 15-20 minutes. Transportation from and to the airports is extremely easy as you can walk to Westin Hotel (a limousine bus stop) at Ebisu Garden Place in 5 minutes from the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had such a wonderful time staying at your beautiful home, it met our every need, and was even more lovely than the photos conveyed.

We would certainly love to stay again and would recommend it to any one coming to visit Tokyo.

Domo Arigato.

Great place for our family of 5. Nice location between meguro and ebisu stations. Also very close to the Westin hotel shuttle bus to and from Narita airport. Would definitely recommend this house for a stay in Tokyo.

Beautiful Mita House

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at The Mita House a few weeks ago. It was so perfect for us (family of 4 with two young children) and even wanted to extend our stay! The house is absolutely beautiful and is located in the center of Tokyo close to Ebisu and Meguro station which is very convenient but in a quiet residential area. There are lots of great restaurants and shops around the house and we were able to get everything we need for our two-week stay. I highly recommend "Ponga", a Japanese BBQ restaurant close to Meguro Station, and take-out/delivery from an Indian Restaurant called Tandoor. The owner (Lilian and Vincent) was always prompt when we had questions and need something which was wonderful. We can't wait to come back next year!!!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Could not have been a better experience from booking through our stay! Lillian was extremely accommodating, especially since it it was a last minute booking. She immediately responded to every question and detail. I agree with all comments from previous posts. We loved the quiet, classy neighborhood, away from the crowded areas of Tokyo, but yet extremely accessible to both Ebisu and Meguro Stations. Very spacious, modern, clean. Favorite nearby area is Daikanyama. We will be recommending Lillian and Vincent's Beautiful Mita to all who want the perfect place in Tokyo. Thank you for our wonderful stay!

Beautiful modern house in upmarket part of Tokyo

  • 4 of 5

Our host Vincent met us at his home, which he himself designed, and we kept in contact throughout our stay. We were wowed by the stunning design aesthetic of this bright, ultra modern, open plan house over 3 floors. There was another apartment above with separate access. The fixtures and fittings were to a high standard. Because of its open plan design the acoustics are quite hard. The kitchen was modern and well equipped, and we cooked breakfast at home. There were toilets and showers on the upper and lower levels which was convenient for our group of 6. The bathroom access upstairs was designed with a family in mind so there was some lack of privacy. Japan's waste separation is different from Europe so we would have appreciated a bit more info on recycling and separation of waste, what's burnable/non burnable; and also a bin for cardboard/paper. We used the washing machine to wash clothes, but the dryer cycle didn't work for us. Overall this house was comfortable and met our needs.

The location was quiet yet very convenient to supermarkets, bars and the Meguro and Ebisu subway stations and we enjoyed exploring the local area. On our first night we had a tasty meal at Blacows Kuroge Wagyou burger house in Ebisu and on our last night a fantastic Tonkatsu dinner at Tonki, a famous and popular local restaurant. Expect waiting times at both restaurants. We stumbled across the amazing bar Dana in Mita Meguro, which must be the smallest bar in Tokyo and that became our local.

Sensational!!! Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This property looked amazing when booking it online so we had high expectations. When we arrived we were blown away! It was simply beautiful and everything we expected plus much more.

The location is ideal with only a short walk (5mins) to Meguro station. It is a beautiful, safe and peaceful neighbourhood. There is everything you need close by either at the conscience stores, wine shop, meguro/ebisu station or supermarkets. There are a lot of great places to eat in Meguro also. Favourit was a yakiniku restaurant just near the station.

We spent almost two weeks in the house and will definitely return.
