Mr Miyatake the housekeeper is a sincere and humble person who tries his best to help in whatever you may need. You get the feeling the whole house is yours if you take both the Sakura and Momiji rooms. The car park is up a narrow sloping road which is difficult if the car is big and allows only traffic in one direction at a time.

Mr. Satoshi's house located in a very quite and peaceful neighbourhood near Oji station, convenient to travel to Osaka and Nara. Mr. Satoshi is a thoughtful man, provided useful advice and shared some travel stories. The house is newly refurbished with modern facilities, the two guest rooms are traditional Japanese style, private, comfortable and enough space for 2~3 person. Highly recommended.

Mr Satoshi's house is really nicer than the pictures you see from his profile. Big, comfortable, and really relaxing with a nice view from its window. Mr Satoshi is a nice and easy going guy, the kind of host that will make your stay enjoyable! The only thing I don't like about him is that he failed to scare me in the morning when I was going down from my room( he hide beside the staircase but I saw his shadow on the floor). I caught him so I expect a small discount when I visit him again. Mr Satoshi please mark my words

Satoshi was the perfect host. It is definitely one of the best that anyone can ask for in a stay in Japan. He is truly hospitable and helpful in every aspect, his apartment is also one of the nicer and newly renovated yet preserving aspects of a Japanese-styled home. First of all, Satoshi would, where possible, drive you from the station when you first arrive, if he couldn't make it, his housekeeper would bring you through a short train ride and walk to the apartment. Essentially, you would not be lost trying to find the way on your very first day. Even on our last day, he offered to drive us to the station again. The best anyone can hope for. Secondly, Satoshi's apartment has pretty much every amenity you would need in a home, be they TV, refrigerator, hot bath, necessities and everything else, you name it, I have reason to believe he has it. If it helps, his Wi-Fi is the fastest out of the several Airbnb apartments I have tried. Near the apartment are also several restaurants and Supermarkets just less than 10 minutes walk away. Thirdly, Satoshi provides recommendation and has information on the go-to places in Nara, also having tourist brochures and pamphlets, saving you the time or effort to go to a nearest Nara Tourist Information Centre. He even offered to drive us to Horyuji, one of the attractions in Nara. Next, Satoshi provides paid services such as preparing breakfast (Japanese or Western style), washing of laundry and night snack. The quality of his breakfast is no lesser than a hotel breakfast. Please do give it a try if you have the chance! Finally, our stay in his apartment is delightfully pleasing, we took a picture with him and hoped that others would give his apartment a try if you want to have an excellent one in Nara. I would rather stay in his apartment than in a hotel and would wish I had more days I could stay in his place.

Our experience staying with Mr Satoshi and Mr Bamboo was very good. Mr Satoshi offered to pick us up from train station but it was not necessary as we drove. We got lost as we did not know how to key in the exact address in the GPS, so Mr Satoshi was kind enough to meet us at a nearby school so we can follow behind his car. The carpark is spacious and right next to his house and it is free! They took good care of us. The weather suddenly turned very cold, but they provided heated blankets on the futon, so we were very comfortable. He made sure the water heater was working when we showered. The room, toilet and common areas are all very clean and organised. The towels are replaced every day and 2 bottles of mineral water are provided each day. The breakfast was very good and filling too. They helped us with whatever we requested for. There are eating places and convenient stores just 5 minutes walk away. Around the Oji area, there are shopping malls and more eating options available. Mr Satoshi helped us with the GPS so we can safely drive out and be able to find our way back. For those who intend to drive around, Mr Satoshi's house is a convenient base to drive to Yoshino, Osaka and Kyoto all within 1-2 hours drive. On the day we were checking out, Mr Bamboo bought us a local dessert called "dango" as a treat. He was very thoughtful and helped us check to make sure we did not leave behind any items and sent us all the way until we drove out from the carpark. The room is spacious for 2 persons and is equipped with all the necessary items like TV, mini-fridge, hangers, sitting area, vanity table. Overall, we felt very comfortable and well taken care of. 主人招待得很周到,尽量为我们提供所需的物品和资料,无微不至。如果是自驾旅行,这里到吉野,大坂,京都都很方便,一至两小时的驾驶,就到达。而且,主人提供免费停车,停车场就在屋旁。这里附近有餐馆和便利店,王子地区也有购物商场,更多的餐厅可选择。

The listing given on Satoshi san's profile was accurate and the pictures shown were good representation of the lovely house Satoshi san has. For the price charged, it is really cheap to be able to stay in a traditional Japanese home accompanied with tatami mats and futons. The entire experience has been nothing short of pleasant.
