5/5 Excellent

This was a perfect stay for our Kyoto experience. Loved Kyoto and Neneko House..thank you Nobu!
A very easy process and great communication from Nobu!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful, traditional-style home
This is a beautiful house in the traditional Japanese style, with modern amenities. It is close to a few bus stops, so it is easy to get out into the city. Some parts are a bit narrow; my taller family members bumped their heads a few times. The owner was prompt and helpful with communications, and met us at the property to show us the house. We only stayed for a few days, but it was very nice.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy Home
We spent 3 nights at Nobu’s home and it was fabulous. The house is on a quiet side street. There is a grocery store nearby with a lot of options. There are also several bus stops within a 2 minute walk and a subway station a little further down the road (about 8-10 minutes walk). The house itself is charming and has everything you could need. The futon beds are comfortable if a little firm, but better than most. We did a little bit of cooking (just using toaster over and microwave) and it went well. There were 3 adults in our group staying here and we loved it.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful--would definitely stay here again!
Nobu's Neneko House near the Handicraft Center was just perfect for our family of four--2 adults and 2 teenagers. Inside the house, we lacked nothing--everything was there--even a washing machine!--and all was immaculate. The AC and WiFi worked perfectly. We didn't cook, but everything was provided should you want to prepare your meals there. Everything was as described; we were impressed. Location: great location! within walking distance of bus stops, train station, delicious restaurants, convenience stores, grocery stores, and famous Kyoto sites, such as the Heian shrine. Very easy to get a taxi from that location as well. Nobu: Nobu was great! Initial email communication was flawless. He then met us at Neneko House to orient us--he was thorough and friendly and answered all of our questions. He gave us a map and pointed out key places such as grocery stores, bus stops, restaurants, etc. In summary, we had a beautiful stay at Neneko House in Kyoto, and we would most definitely stay here again on our next visit to Kyoto. Thank you, Nobu, for your hospitality and wonderful machiya!

4/5 Good

Enjoyable stay in Kyoto
Hi Nobuya, Really nice location and four of us stayed in your townhouse for two days. Very compact, yet we all had our space and enjoyed the conveniences. Would do it again. Thanks, Lawrence
