Live with the locals in Yamashina-ku, conveniently only 12 minutes to Kyoto Station by taxi.
After an action packed day visiting the amazing Temples, gardens & tourist spots around Kyoto, you'll come home to relax on the terrace with the most stunning of Mountain views.
3 bedrooms, 2 tatami , 1 western , will sleep 4 very comfortably.
2nd level living room continues the Mountain views & Yamashina City lights as the sun sets over what is quintessentially, Kyoto-shi.
Large open plan living on the ground level is casual & comfortable. Reverse cycle air-conditioning keeps things cosy or cool.
Large, deep , tradition Japanese soaking tub in the wet room will have you feeling like you are in you own private bath house.

The entire house is available for you to relax and enjoy. The large living area on the ground level is an open space that combines relaxed lounge area and casual dining. The dining is Western table & chairs .
The house is a Japanese / Western combination to give you a hint of authentic Japanese living combined with Western for your comfort. Sitting on the floor is not so easy if you haven't done it all your life.

I live locally in Yamashina-ku and am on hand at all times should you need anything from how to work the wifi to local knowledge.
Yamashina-ku has many easy Mountain walks right at the door that I can suggest should a light hike through nature be something you'd enjoy.

my name is Sally. I am a mother of 3 great kids. Austin 17, Perry 14 and Astrid 11.
We are from the inner city suburb of Sydney called Surry Hills. Its a very cool place, busy and vibrant, but now are so very fortunate to live in Yamashina-ku, a very beautiful part of Kyoto-shi.
My kids are obsessed with all things Japanese, especially Manga.
They are learning to speak , read and write in Japanese at their new school here in Kyoto.
I am a Fashion Designer and for 25 years have had my own label, but now source Japanese Collectables for my online store, working from my home Studio here in Kyoto so I can be there all the time for the kids.
Becoming an Air Bnb host has been a life changing experience for us all. It's incredibly rewarding to be part of this great, Global community.
I LOVE what I do...
We try to live each day to it's full potential and eagerly seek and discover anything that will enhance our lives.
I look forward to you staying at one of my of my homes in Surry Hills, Sydney or
Yamashina-ku & Nakagyo, Kyoto-shi.
Each has it's unique & individual well as being beautifully decorated with my recent finds.
' Your home away from home.'
Many thanks, Sally.
