Wonderful stay! Perfect for those cruising from Yokohama.
First off - owners are wonderful people who work hard to make your stay as smooth & stress free as possible. Even though they speak & understand limited English, they are more than willing to message through a translation app so that you get the answers and info you need. The house is exceptionally clean and well stocked, with comfortable beds and great showers. The neighborhood was fun & safe, with shopping all around, including convenience stores and restaurants. The location was what 1st attracted us to this property, and we weren't disappointed. Walking distance from/to Kannai Station (about 10 minutes) and about a 30 minute walk to Osanbashi Cruise Terminal. But, to make it even more appealing to those cruising out of Yokohama (we were taking Princess), the owners provided transportation to the port in their personal van, taking 3 of us adults & the luggage for all 9 of us. They offered to make 2 trips to accommodate all of us, but our 20ish yr. olds chose to walk to the port. I wouldn't automatically expect this extra service since I know it depends on whether the husband is available, but for us it worked out and sure was above & beyond what was expected and very much appreciated. My only caution on this property would be the stairs you have to climb to get to the apartment. It is 2 flights of stairs, a bit steep, but nice & wide. Not a problem for younger people, but for those of us over 50, and after long days of exploring Tokyo, those steps proved to be a bit of a challenge. Not a deal breaker by any means, but just be prepared. All said, we loved our stay and really appreciated the care and attention to detail from the owners!
