Andrea and Mayumi have a lovely home, and they were extremely helpful in giving us information about what to see and do in Kyoto. The location is great, and the flat has everything you need whilst also giving a taste of a traditional Japanese home - I would definitely stay there again!
I stayed at this apartment for 2 weeks in August, and I loved it. Andrea & Mayumi provided excellent, kind, and reliable service, and when I arrived they greeted me, and shared some maps and sightseeing recommendations for my stay, including how to get to many of the temples, shrines, and important places to visit.
The apartment looks just like the photos -- I slept well, and I enjoyed the balcony overlooking the canal and Kiyamachi Street. From the apartment, I could easily walk to local restaurants, shops, the Kamo River, and - for convenience I could also walk to the grocery store and 7-11 (great for ATM machine for travelers!). I traveled solo and felt very safe during the day and at night. This apartment is upstairs on the second floor, and has good natural light from the windows. The wi-fi and washing machine at the apartment were really helpful for me.
For sightseeing and shopping, I could walk to the bus stop, several train/subway stations, and I also walked to the famous Kiyomizudera Temple, Kodaiji Temple, and many more. I could also walk easily to the fabulous department stores and shops at Shijo-Kawaramachi intersection.
Andrea and Mayumi responded quickly when I had a few questions during my stay, and they even gave me recommendations for restaurants that I enjoyed. They were always helpful and kind... great people. I felt at home here and I highly recommend this apartment. I wish I was still there!
