    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    Our place is a renovated traditional Kyoto style 100 year-old townhouse called Kyo-machiya nestled in the central Kyoto - 2 min walk from Gojo subway station and Karasuma-Gojo bus stop, 10 min walk from JR Kyoto station. Despite the convenient location, the neighborhood is very quiet due to taller apartments that surround our property and the residential area that circles our place.

    The traditional Japanese houses do not have what others call 'bedrooms'. Instead, we have multi-functional rooms that can be used as dining room, bed room, guest room, tea room, etc. as futons can be easily folded and put away in the closet to maximize space usage. We have 4 rooms - 2 on the ground floor and 2 upstairs. We have a big air conditioner on the ground floor that cools the entire ground fl...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 27 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed in the house for one week in mid-July, during the Gion Festival. We wanted to feel an "authentic" Japanese home experience, and this house supplied it. Everything in the house is Japaneses with the exception of the toilet (a relief for my kids). Tatami mats, low table with cushions on the floor, sliding wooden walls, a beautiful folding screen. The house is well air-conditioned and very comfortable. Extremely clean and well supplied. The location is very good - one stop from Kyoto train station, about a 15 minute walk. About a 20 minute walk to the center of town. We barely used the subway. Food store and 7-11 5 minute walk away. The pictures on the website realistically reflect the house. We were 2 parents and our 3 adult children and 5 suitcases and 5 carry-ons and we had plenty of space. Also, directions are provided for all the appliances in English. more

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here with three adults, one teenager and two young children under 5. A traditional property, with modern comforts (Western toilet, shower etc). Location is convenient to Kyoto train, some smaller supermarkets. Finding it the first time was a little tricky but after that, so easy to get around the place. The owner is fabulously helpful, professional and it's a true holiday rental property (not a home where the owners move out when it's rented leaving their personal items in the house for you to contend with). Space was tight for 6 of us, however, that was when we were actually there at times we weren't just sleeping or getting ready to go out. If you had a family of four, it would be more than fine. No cot but they have futons so no problems of falling out and down. A great place to stay - we'd go back. more
