We stayed in this house for two weeks while attending conferences in eastern and western Tokyo. The location was ideal for us with close access (15-min walk) to train station and grocery stores. There are small, but amazing restaurants in close proximity as well, and Shibuya is just a few stops away. Staying in the house made us feel more like residents of Tokyo and it was a wonderful experience to blend in with the daily routines of the residents. The house itself is amazing. It is large with modern and up-scale appliances. Each room has its own AC unit, making it convenient to accommodate individual persons preferred temperature setting. The neighborhood is very quiet and definitely belong in the more up-scale category. The host is extremely helpful and very responsive.
All-in-all, we have an amazing experience at this house and plan on coming back each year if possible. Thank you Chieko!!!
Great place to stay for a large group, plenty of space, very comfy and modern. Near train & bus stops. Host is very helpful, always contactable and very responsive. Highly recommend.
My parents and their friends stayed in this house together for 2 weeks and had a wonderful experience. For Japan, this house was very spacious and the kitchen was good - well stocked with good appliances and an 8 seater dining table. The shower area was lovely - big and plenty of storage space. This host was extremely attentive and helpful and checked on us every step of the way. She even ordered something for the kitchen that was missing, and it was delivered within a day. The walk to the station was too long for my parents (aged 75 with some walking issues) but others would probably think its fine. In any case, we could flag down a taxi from around the corner and it only cost the flag fall fare (410yen) to get to the station each day. The polished wooden staircase without a hand rail (often the case in Japan) was a bit scary for my father who was recovering from a broken leg, but again, this might not bother many other people. It was okay for me, since I live in Japan and am used to it.
All in all, it was a great choice of accommodation for my family to be able to visit me, and stay in the comfort of an actual house, instead of a hotel. I definitely recommend this to others.
This place is just like it says. It is very spacious for Tokyo and perfect for larger families. It has a full kitchen, large bathroom and laundry facilities. It's a short walk to trains and so easy to get around. We had 3 adults and 7 children and there was plenty of space.
I loved my stay at this place! It was very close to the near by station and the neighborhood was very safe and quiet. Communication with hosts was very smooth and they care for us a lot. It is a very welcoming home and I could really tell that the owners take care of the house very well. All the rooms were very spacious, the kitchen was stunning and easy to use, the living room was very cozy and big, the shower room was very clean and tidy....and the list goes on. I definitely was very much satisfied with my stay. 100% recommend to anybody looking for a great time in Tokyo!
The house in Setagaya was clean, cozy, well-equipped and well-stocked. The bedrooms are a good size and comfortable. The big living/dining room was great for the family to gather and relax after a long day out and about. The kitchen has utensils and equipment that allowed us to cook dinner for 8-15 people easily. The bathroom is adequate and having the separate second toilet was handy for a big group like ours. Having only one shower/ bathroom required scheduling but worked out ok.
The house is located in a quiet neighborhood with a driving range nearby and grocery stores a short walk away. The closest metro is a bit farther but within an easy walk and is just a few stops from Shibuya.
Chieko was a gracious host attentive to our needs. The use of the bicycles were a big hit with my family. They were very good for exploring the neighborhood and bringing home groceries. Thank you, Chieko.
Our party of eight, two families of four from California, just finished a 5-night stay in Chieko's house in Setagaya. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house is just as impressive as the pictures indicate, what you see is what you get...and more. A 5-bedroom is a rare find anywhere in Tokyo and the size of the rooms, from the bedrooms to the common areas, made for a very comfortable stay. We were able to rest in fine fashion each night and recharge our batteries for more running around the many sights of Tokyo. With restaurants around the train stations (Sakurashinmachi on the Den-En Toshi Line and Kamimachi Station on the Setagaya Line), there were plenty of opportunities to eat (David's Ramen and Osoba Restaurant, very nice) or bring back food nearby supermarkets, the house is located nicely and equipped with plenty of dishware, etc. The entire house was very clean upon check-in, the furnishings in great condition and only top quality materials and appliances were used. Staying in the neighborhood allowed us to be around local Japanese as they went about their daily tasks, a rare glimpse that you can't get staying in hotels located in commercial areas. It's a great, quiet neighborhood, easy to get around on foot or bike (5 adult bikes and one kids bike available at the house). But the house and neighborhood are only part of the good story about the stay...from weeks before our visit and throughout our stay, Chieko was easily accessible and checked in on us by instant messaging (Line) to make sure we enjoyed our stay in the house and enjoyed Tokyo. She continued to offer help and assistance throughout our entire Japan stay. On our last day, at our request, she arranged for two taxis to pick us up to take us to Shibuya Station to catch the Narita Express train (NEX) to the airport. She spoke to the drivers via telephone to make sure we got dropped off in the right place (New South Gate is close to the NEX platform no.4). I would wholeheartedly recommend this home for a Tokyo stay and would not hesitate to return for a stay. Thanks, Chieko and Yulin!
