Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Architecturally designed house- a serene retreat in central Tokyo.

This penthouse contains living, dining, and kitchen on one floor, and an oversized bedroom on the top floor. Furnished with a comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom and an easy-to-operate sofa bed in the living room, the penthouse is able to accommodate four to five guests comfortably. It is equipped with an open kitchen/dining, a spacious full bathroom, and a powder room (with a toilet and a sink) nearby the living room. The outdoor deck adjacent to dining area brings in plenty of sunlight with lovely, open views.

The house was designed and built in 2009 by the owner/architect, with the aim of bringing an abundance of natural light in the city and using comfortable and neutral materials and colors throughout. Conveniently located in the Ebisu/Meguro area, you will find an array of shopping and dining choices as well as several supermarkets all within short walking distance from the house. Meguro Station is within 7-min walk and Ebisu within 11-minute, both with JR Yamanote Line and several Tokyo Metro subway lines with easy access to many popular destinations. Within a 5-minute walk to Ebisu Garden Place, you will find this shopping mall with a spacious plaza for children to play in and is the home of Yebisu Beer Museum. It houses Mitsukoshi department store offering international dining, bakeries, coffee shops and cafes, a book store, plus an upscale supermarket on the basement level with plenty of fresh groceries, delicatessen, Japanese and Western sweets, take out lunch boxes, and many more.

From both Narita and Haneda airports, the Airport Limousine bus stops at the Westin Hotel in Ebisu Garden Place, which is a 5-minute stroll to the house. The Narita Express train is another convenient option, which will take you to Shinagawa Station. The house is a 15-minute taxi ride from Shinagawa Station. The airport monorail from Haneda Airport stops at Hamamatsucho Station on the Yamanote Line, and you are able to transfer to Meguro Station or take a taxi from Hamamatsucho.

Please be informed that this is a uniquely designed house (rather than an apartment), thus you will be able to stay with complete privacy and comfort in a pleasant neighborhood in the heart of Tokyo.

Please note: There is an outside stairwell leading up to 3F. Sorry, no elevator.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks at the Mita Penthouse. It is situated on a quiet street, even though the surrounding area is bustling. We found it very convenient to access both the Meguro and Ebisu JR subways stations, the latter being a healthy 15-20" walk. We appreciated the two stories as it gave us extra space and privacy. The furnishings are comfortable; appliances reliable, useful. Lillian provides a very thorough instruction manual for the appliances, air conditioning, etc., as well as a number to call for an English-speaking taxi service. As others have mentioned, there are staircases both outside the unit and within, so renters should be prepared for stairs. Assuming this unit is available in the future, we would absolutely love to stay here again.

Thank you, Lillian.

Modern and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 14 year old son and I spent 3 nights at this lovely home in late May. Vangie met us at the flat and kindly showed us where to find extra supplies and how to use some of the appliances. The rental is in a quiet neighborhood, a short walk to both Meguro and Ebisu stations, a stop or two away from the hustle and bustle of Shibuya. The location of the flat makes for an excellent home base. The rental is spacious, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. We love eating out in Tokyo and the stairs both outside and inside kept us in good shape! My only complaint is that we didn't allow time in our schedule for a longer stay. I hope to stay here again next time we're in Tokyo!

An enjoyable week in a quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The bustle of Tokyo is closest to transit stations and key sights. This rental is in a residential enclave between the Meguro (I and N trains) and Ebisu stations, (H and JR Yamamote line), and walking distance to other trendy areas such as Nagameguro and Daikanyama. Ebisu has a large food hall underground that dazzles the mind, yet there are many more underground food markets in the city that are even more impressive.

The flat has everything you need for an enjoyable visit, with good air conditioning and heat, nice and sunny, and the stairs are not bad at all, two flights up to the unit, and another flight up to access the roomy bedroom. The week went by quickly, I could have stayed much longer and find Tokyo the most fascinating place I have ever visited.

Perfect Tokyo Home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at this beautiful modern apt. Lillian is an amazing host and is easy to communicate with. The home has all the amenities you could want and the location can't be beat. There are 2 different subway stations that you can use to get anyplace in Tokyo. Both are a 5-10 minute walk from the apt. In addition we loved the neighborhood, which has numerous supermarkets, convenience stores and restaurants. I would highly recommend this apt to my friends and family. A much better alternative to a hotel for a real Tokyo experience.

Excellent

This was a beautiful, spacious apartment with plenty of space for four adults. The apartment was immaculate, the appliances modern, and the location very convenient for getting around. We stayed four nights and enjoyed ourselves immensely. Thanks Vincent and Lillian!
