My family enjoyed a wonderful stay at Kamigamo house. It was a beautiful place to spend the beginning of autumn in Kyoto. The home is extremely spacious with a well-equipped kitchen and all the other comforts of home (including outdoor space, which is especially helpful if you have kids). The owner is fantastic. At every turn she was responsive and thoughtful. She saw that everything was perfect for our stay, and we really appreciated these personal touches. My family loved the location as well. It is close to the bus and train, making it convenient to our favorite spots in town, while also being quiet and relaxing. At night my son loved hearing the sounds of deer in the nearby woods! We would be delighted to stay at this home during a future stay in Kyoto. Excellent Lycar 11/8/2019 11:04:00 PM
Spent nearly 5 weeks in this lovely house with my family and it was a great beginning to a year in Kyoto. Despite the intense heat (we came in August) the house was pleasant and the owner extremely helpful in terms of getting settled, using the facilities and the neighbourhood. Transport is relatively efficient but renters with kids may want to hire a car as it's a bit out of the way. The amenities were all fantastic and kitchen well stocked. Spacious enough for nearly 8 people if aircon functioning in all rooms during the summer months. A very lovely place Excellent caroline 10/7/2019 3:42:00 PM
