  • Fantastic property!!!

    "The Apple House is the ideal property for experiencing Kyoto and Japanese living. The home is traditional Japanese, cozy, clean, well maintained and located on a winding road that runs along a river. The home provides all your basics and then some for moving right in, without having to buy a lot of extras.The owner provided exceptional customer service from picking us up at the station to removing trash and changing the bedding during our 3 week stay. The buses and trains are convenient, as is access to a 7-11 store with English newspapers and an ATM that provides foreign currency exchange (not readily available in many parts of Japan.) We loved this home and would recommend it to anyone who wants an authentic Japanese living experience."

  • Delightful, spacious home away from home

    "We were a group of 8 women aged 30s to 60s & we absolutely loved this house. We had plenty of space, 3 western style single beds with the rest futons on tatami mats. All beds were warm & comfortable. House was very clean & had everything we needed. Wifi never failed. The bathroom & laundry facilities are outside the house proper at the back, but this didn't bother us at all. The separate vanity units with mirrors (2) was convenient for such a large group of women. Likewise, the separate toilets (2), were conveniently separate from each of the bathrooms. One bathroom has a bath with shower, while the other has a shower only. Plenty of hot water. There was also a separate urinal. There is a lovely private garden at the back, along with the tea room which we didn't use. Once we got our bearings, we found it in a convenient location for catching trains, including the little train to Arashiyama. There's a convenience store (Lawsons) just a block away, on the corner of the major street that runs into the city centre/shopping district. To get there, our taxi driver had to phone the owner for directions, despite us having the address (little street). So, I suggest guests keep all details very handy when trying to get to the house & for when you travel outside it. We took photos on our phone of the streets at the intersection where the Lawsons store is on the main street, & found these were immediately recognised by taxi drivers. The owner was always prompt in replying to any queries I had in making the booking. We had no issues at all during our stay & our entire group loved the house. Highly recommended."
