We (four of us) stayed here in Sept for 4 nights. Absolutely love it.
Start with a very easy, prompt booking via email communications with owner who is very good with English.
Prompt in the check in, and very detailed with useful maps.
Clean, comfortable, everything in kitchen for cooking, bus stop within 1 minute walk, a big supermarket - good for buying food if you like to cook your meals or breakfast. I think the supermarket has some 'specials' at night about 8pm (they closed at 10pm).
All good here as there is nothing negative to share except .... there is an uneven brick or concrete at the turning point off main street pathway, into the side street before reaching home. At night without much lighting here, this uneven brick can be a little dangerous.
There is also a bus to GION. Food / cafe nearby - not too fancy for us as we either eat in or dine around GION.
Will recommend anyone who is looking for a clean, comfortable, quiet place to stay in Kyoto.More
