About Lillian - Mita Residence/Penthouse
We moved to Tokyo a few years ago from the U.S.. Being an architect, we decided to build our own house there with a layout and atmosphere that best suit our life style by combining the western style with Japanese elements.
Lillian - Mita Residence/Penthouse purchased this House in 2009
Why Lillian - Mita Residence/Penthouse chose Meguro
We absolutely love the location and this lovely neighborhood. Unlike most typical central Tokyo houses, we have a unique lot with openness and sunlight from all directions. We designed and built our home just over in 2009 and it has been immaculately maintained. The house has been published in several architectural/ interior magazines and has won an architectural design award. Due to our move, we are pleased to offer it to travelers visiting Tokyo.
What makes this House unique
Other than the superb location, we enjoyed the light-filled spaces throughout the house with modern yet warm ambiance. The Meguro River nearby is a very popular cherry blossom destination with spectacular view of the sakura trees along the river. Strolling or jogging along the canal is another activity to enjoy. We especially love the convenience of walking to Ebisu Garden Place with the spacious ground for kids to run around and for family dining with endless choices. Meguro Station area offers more local/traditional food and atmosphere. You can also walk to the trendy Nakameguro/Daikanyama area within 15-20 minutes. Transportation from and to the airports is extremely easy as you can walk to Westin Hotel (a limousine bus stop) at Ebisu Garden Place in 5 minutes from the house.
Local Services & Businesses
Ideal vacation home
This was a lovely place to stay in while visiting Tokyo. It was clean, well located near the train, quiet and serene. Everything worked well, and the owners were very responsive before and during the trip. We would definitely choose this home again if we return to Tokyo.
Modern house in Tokyo
We had a great time at Lillian’s house. The house is modern, with lots of natural light coming in, very clean and is situated in a very quiet neighborhood, yet close to the subway station, good restaurants and grocery stores. Everyone in our party, including my 93 yr old father-in-law, loved it! I would definitely stay there again in my next trip to Tokyo.
Perfect house in perfect location with perfect host
If you have the privilege of staying in Lillian’s beautiful house in Meguro you will be forever thankful.
My family and I were grateful for...
1. Lillian (the host). Lillian goes out of her way to be helpful prior to and during your stay at her place. She replies to emails with great efficiency. She is very personable. Lillian provides the most helpful information prior to your arrival to ensure that your stay is as pleasant as possible.
2. The house is designed with a simple elegance in mind. It is beautiful.
3. The location was wonderful - not in the midst of the bright lights of Tokyo but not too far away either (especially by the JR Line). Meguro is surprisingly close to Shibuya and Shinjuku.
The house is well equipped with the latest technologies. It was immaculately clean upon our arrival.
Perfect house in perfect location with perfect host.
Modern residence. Quiet part of town. Good food and shopping within walking distance.
A short walk from two JR train stations and subway lines made getting here and away very easy. The house is super clean and very comfortable. We were a group of 3 couples and found the space suited us quite well. We would stay here again and would recommend this neighborhood for travelers looking to get away from crowds.
Great host and accomodation
This home provided a comfortable stay for our group of seven adults during our trip to Tokyo. It was very clean, and located in a convenient location (about 10 minute walk from Meguro Station, and had a 24-hour convenience store up the street). The host was quick to respond to questions during our stay and even gave a list of recommendations of nearby restaurants prior to our trip.
I would recommend this home if you are planning to stay in Tokyo. Thanks Lillian!
comfortable, well positioned home in Tokyo
We are a family of 7 adults who spent 3 nights in this beautiful home in Tokyo. Communication with owners was excellent, and check in and check out of the house was excellent. The owners have provided extensive instructions for using all of the appliances in the house including the air conditioning system. This made it extremely easy for us (and is a feature missing in most vacation rentals). The owners also provided good maps and instructions for reaching the house in English and in Japanese for use with taxis. The house is 10 minutes walk from a JR/subway stop and also a large complex with grocery and other shopping. The owners provided dish soap, clothing detergent, shampoo and body wash. There's lots of hot water and the air conditioning worked very well. Kitchen is beautiful, but could use some more glasses and cutlery. The bedding supplied was good - note that 2 of our party slept on futons in the tatami room. Everything worked very well. The house was very clean upon arrival. I recommend this house especially if you have a large number of people. We all enjoyed our stay in the house and would rent it again.
