  • “Great Apartment, Great Owner/ Manager and Great Location!”

    "Being from Seattle and booking an apartment in Israel, naturally we were skeptical to book an apartment so far away and out of the Country. Working with Dor made all the difference in the world. Dor was very accommodating and removed any fears we had about the online reservation. The apartment was wonderful and very comfortable for our 2 week stay. 3 bedroom and 3 bathrooms a large kitchen, dining room, living room with flat screen tv and so much more. The location of the apartment was wonderful too. We walked to the Old City and the shook several times. If you like sushi, Sushi Rechavia is about a block away. This was a very memorable trip and well worth it. Thank you Dor for all your hospitality!!!"

  • Fantastic Property

    "With 48 fantastic reviews already on this property, we were confident it was going to be good. We were not disappointed in any way, it really was as good as the previous reviewers said. The location is fabulous - tucked away in a quiet lane just below our favourite part of Kyoto. The area around Kiyomizu Dera was packed with tourists and school groups, but the house was a peaceful refuge a short walk away. Also a short walk from the taxi stand (for a family of 4 it was almost as cheap to use taxis as buses) and bus stop, so really easy to get to other parts of a Kyoto. The house is beautiful Japanese style with all modern comforts and really well equipped. The queen bed is firm by western standards (futon on tatami base) but we found it to be really comfortable. The kids loved their tatami room with futons on the floor. Great to have a Japanese style bathroom with a deep tub for a soak and a washing machine/dryer (there is a great little outdoor area where you can dry your clothes easily, so we didn't need the dryer). We had a couple of really wet days and the 4 umbrellas provided were much appreciated. This is a great property but the best thing of all is Acco's hospitality. Acco speaks perfect English and it was lovely to be able to have a real conversation with a Japanese person. She met us at the taxi stand and walked with us to the house, then spent considerable time explaining everything in the house and giving us lots of tips on the best places to visit. At the end of our stay she walked back to the taxi stand with us and arranged a taxi at would fit our ever expanding bags! This was a superb home for us and our teenage kids in Kyoto - the only complaint is that 5 nights was not long enough. Would love to return and would definitely stay in Acco's house again."

  • Perfect Location. Quiet Neighborhood

    "My two sons and I stayed in this apartment for a 10-night stay. It was the perfect location for us, since the subway/train station was close by. We had plenty of space for the three of us. Nakano has a grocery store, which we shopped at daily. It's just a few blocks from the apartment, and you pass it on your way to/from the subway station. One thing to keep in mind is that Nakano is not a tourist spot. We did have a bit of trouble when it came to dining in some of the local restaurants. Two of them turned us away. Not sure if it was the language barrier or if we indeed required a reservation. We should have asked our host, Makoto, for a few more dining suggestions while in that area. Speaking of Makoto, he was an absolute pleasure. From the moment we reserved the room, until our departure, he provided us with much information and assistance. Make sure you understand the trash sorting before your host departs. It can be confusing. I would definitely stay there again. It was our home away from home."

Thailand Travel Tips

Getting to Thailand

Thailand has good air connections with other cities in Southeast Asia and around the globe. The main airport is in Bangkok and several domestic airports provide access to other regions. Bangkok International Airport hosts a wide variety of international airlines from around the world on regularly scheduled commercial flights. There is a good road and rail network but it is extremely congested in the cities. Driving is not recommended for foreigners. Instead, take a taxi or arrange a private transfer between the airports and your vacation homes. In many of the tourists areas, it quite easy to get around by bicycle. There are many local companies that hire bikes. If you are traveling to the islands, boat transfers can be easily arranged to hop from one island to another.

Activities and Attractions near Thailand

Thailand is a destination that appeals to people with a wide range of interests. It is a destination that is probably best known for its beautiful beaches and calm turquoise waters. Sun lovers and beach enthusiasts can spend their days lazing in the sun. Beach bars and restaurants provide refreshments and entertainment late into the night. Scuba divers can enjoy some spectacular coral reefs. Many are shallow enough to enjoy snorkeling and the water is warm enough to swim for hours. Boating excursions take you to uninhabited islands where you can explore caves and rainforests. There are towering walls for rock climbing and a number of trekking trails.

On land, Thailand is known for its excellent golf courses, affordable shopping and tasty cuisine. There are numerous golf courses along the coast which are highly ranted. Anywhere in Thailand, you can browse the street markets, spend some time haggling with the stall owners, and find yourself some excellent bargains. If you enjoy nature and trekking, the highland area near Chang Mai is the place to go. Here, you can experience rural Thailand at its best. Tall lush forests, towering mountain peaks and quaint villages tucked in among rice paddies and agricultural fields. For those who enjoy a bit of pampering, you can book yourself a treatment in one of the many spas. Thai massage is famous the world over and it is a wonderful way to relax on your vacation.

Best Time of Year to Visit Thailand Villas

In general, Thailand has a warm tropical climate that varies only moderately between the different regions. Temperatures are hot all year and humidity can get extreme during the summer months. For this reason, most travelers choose to visit during the cooler winter months. For the highland and central areas, November to March are generally considered the best times to travel. For the islands, such as Koh Samui, June through September is the favored time to visit.

Things to Remember When Traveling in Thailand

Thailand is a relatively inexpensive destination which means that if you plan carefully you can really stretch your travel budget. Take time to research the various destinations and decide what activities you want to do on your vacation. In that way, you can minimize the time spent traveling between destinations and instead enjoy all the sights that Thailand has to offer. When getting taxis and tuk tuks, agree on a price before you leave; otherwise, you find yourself paying a higher price when you get to your destination. Scooters and bicycles can be hired to get around but driving in the more built-up areas does sometimes require nerves of steel. The roads tend to be a chaotic mixture of vehicles, bicycles, scooters and pedestrians.
