“beautiful house”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

the house is beautiful. the building is combine with modern and traditional design.
facility is new. it was close with Keihan railway station, but only problem is, there have no direct train connect to Kyoto station. we have to walk to subway station or keihan station to change railway to kyoto station( JR LIne).

overall, this house is comfortable and nice to stay. for sure next time we will stay here again.

“A taste of Japanese living”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Really enjoyed our stay in K's villa. Two families with 4 children between us - gave us the flexibility to put the children to bed and enjoy a glass of wine!
Beautifully decorated, felt very "Japanese" and the futons were surprisingly comfortable. Good location and nice view of the river from the upstairs bedroom.

“Our Second Time -- Still Perfect !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is my second stay at this wonderful K's Villa Kamogawa-an. Just one word -still perfect.

I've made an intensive search for Machiya (traditional japanese townhouse) in Kyoto for my family vacation, and this is by far the best Kyoto Machiya in terms of value for money and view of the river. You can't get any better than this for the price you'd pay for.

I can go on and on about how my family love this Machiya, but to make it short -- here are just some of them.

-elegant design of the Machiya and the garden
-wonderful view of the Kamo River
-nice facilities : cypress bathtub, heated floor, dish washer, complete set of kitchenware
-beautiful art works and furnitures throughout the Machiya
-free bicycles - we all love riding the bicycles along the river.

Thank you K's Villa for our wonderful time.

“PERFECT place for a small group in Kyoto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Stayed in Kyoto with wife/daughter (12), brother and mother.

This was my brother and mother's first trip to Japan... and we wanted to give them a more traditional experience without paying too much.

They (and we) loved K's. A very traditional, high-quality feel/vibe with the things we modern folks need today (free wifi/laundry).

Pros:
- Short walk to train/subway stop for access all around Kyoto
- Not too far from Kyoto station
- Discount for breakfast buffet at Zen Cafe (500 yen per person)
- Gorgeous view of the river
- Plenty of space upstairs for we five (mom in own room on single; brother in own room on mat). Wife, daughter and I in the master space upstairs (daughter slept in the window alcove behind a curtain by choice)
- Nifty coffee (to hand grind) in the morning along with tea
- Four free bikes for getting about

Of note the weather was so nice the last night that we just walked back from the restaurant district along the water.

Cons:
- There is only one shower/sink and one toilet (separate spaces). We're used to this, but it does require some planning for getting everyone out the door.

I could not imagine staying anywhere else if we went back to Kyoto!

Liked best: Overall feel of the spot
