                            My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at this property for a week while giving our daughter and her boyfriend a grand tour of Central Japan. We were excited about being able to "show off" some conveniently-located near major destinations, without the clamor and clutter of city lodgings. Located in a secure tower of luxury condominiums on a small island, the property is a short walk from the monorail station. The residence consists of a large living area, kitchen, two western-style bedrooms and one large Japanese style bedroom, one and a half bathrooms, and a full laundry room. It also has all modern amenities that you would expect from home, like a large refrigerator, television, and quality furnishings. Returning to this place after daily excursions was like coming home--that is, if your home is a luxurious, clean, and quiet condominium. Our daughter and her boyfriend are major foodies, so they especially appreciated being a short train ride from the Osaka and Kobe night scenes. My wife and I love the Japanese history and heritage, so we appreciated being a short train ride from Kyoto, Nara, and Hiroshima. One of the many highlights made possible by the convenient location, we took a day trip to Nara, stopped for a Hanshin Tigers game on the way home, and the kids still had time to hit the Osaka night scene before catching the last train home. I highly recommend this property, and hope to be able to stay there again.

                            The flat was clean and welcoming. We were there as the weather was turning colder and the heating and bedding was excellent. Very near to numerous good restaurants, Japanese and Western. Convenient to Osaka and Kobe. We would definitely stay again - highly recommended.

                            This place is WONDERFUL! Visiting Kansai with several friends last year, we wanted to stay in a place that would give us the 'feel' of a local community, not the usual foreigner experience of hostels or cramped hotels. We were lucky to find this place: big, spacious, sunny, and tucked away in a great location - a charming community with all the amenities, beautiful views of Kobe, and easy access to Osaka and Kyoto. The place is enormous, and not just by Japanese standards. The bathroom, carpets, and tatami flooring all look brand-new. There is a huge Japanese bathtub. The kitchen is big and includes all the cooking utensils. Bedding and beds are all there for use, couches, heaters, coolers, washing machine....you name it: it all there. The pictures don't really do justice to how nice the place is. Its really amazing that the owners are so open and generous with all the 'extras'. It would be ideal for a family, but also for a group of friends who would never find a single place this big in hotels in Japan. On that note, the owners are great - extremely helpful in offering up suggestions about where to visit in the area and how to navigate Japan. I relied on them to help me figure out where to eat and what to see. Extremely lovely people (as is the neighbor across the way who is there to 'troubleshoot' if any big issues arise). Overall, this place is highly recommended. It would simply be a shame to stay in a cramped, ageing Japanese hotel for the same price.

                            Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, age 55+, families with teenagers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.
