Even before we punched in the combination to the door lock, we could tell that this place was going to be nice. A beautiful lantern hung above the hand-engraved house name plaque, "Ju Ichi An". We stepped in, and as each of our family members removed shoes, put on house slippers and stepped up into the house, each exclaimed, "Wow!" The house has three large bedrooms, one downstairs with beds for us grandparents who chose not to climb the step stairs to sleep on the tatami floor. Our grandsons and their parents enjoyed the two upstairs rooms. The dining table was great for breakfasts and planning the next day's adventures. The toilet had a heated seat and warm water wash. The bath room had a shower as well as a deep bronze soaking tub. While another toilet would have been helpful, with sink, toilet, and bath separated, it worked out fine. The clothes washer and balcony clothes hanging poles allowed us to refresh our wardrobes. While the kitchen was very narrow, it was excellently furnished, the appliances worked well, and the beautiful tansu contained beautiful dinner ware. The place felt clean and was very comfortable, The house was very traditionally Japanese but having Wifi, instant hot water, and heaters in every room made it feel very modern. Ken, a representative for the owner stopped by to check on things. We would gladly return to this house.

“If you want to experience authentic Kyoto, it doesn't get better than this”

We went to Kyoto for 6 days in mid May and I am so thankful that we decided to book this particular house. We traveled as a couple with our adventurous 6 year old daughter. The house is perfectly situated in Kyoto and we were able to walk to almost all the sites that we wanted to see. We even walked to the Kyoto train station one day (took about an hour). BTW having a GPS map of Kyoto was a must for us!
The neighborhood that this house is in is very quiet and charming with a fantastic supermarket just up the road with some of the freshest seafood I've seen. The home itself was perfect for us and we enjoyed having our own space to retreat to at the end of a busy day. The kitchen was very usable, although comically narrow. This house was more than enough for the 3 of us and although would sleep 8 comfortably the living space for 8 people would be quite tight.
We had one issue come up during our stay that the owner, Avi addressed immediately. Avi was also extremely helpful with recommending a couple hikes that allowed us to get out in the nearby forest for some truly amazing days.
Without a doubt I would recommend this rental house for anyone wanting to get a true taste of like in Kyoto. Thank you Avi and to your staff for providing us with a most memorable stay in beautiful Kyoto!
(If this location is not what your looking for check out Avi's other rental homes in the nearby area)
