This house is amazing for couple of friends or family. We stayed here 5 friends. Shimpei, the host, was extremely helpful and kind. He printed all the information about the house, Kyoto and the area in nicely organized folders! He even reserved a table for us when we couldn't communicate with a restaurant. Everything you need is in the house: laundry machine, coffee machine, automated cab request.. even a cell phone to make free calls in Japan! It's a beautiful house with a cute little backyard and tea room viewing the backyard.
The location was also great: Saiin station is about 3mins away, Kyoto station is 20mins away. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!
