Our party of 4 thoroughly enjoyed this place. The owners stock the apartment with everything you would need for cooking, eating, sleeping, ... making you feel at home and your stay enjoyable. There were coffee and tea bags, honey, salt and pepper, even a small bottle of oil so we could fry eggs for breakfast, sandwich bags, toaster, pots and pans, utensils, cups, plates, silverware, tissue boxes, scotch tape, scissors, you name it, ... so you don't have to go buy all these when you only need them for a short stay. They was even a yoga mat left there. Since Japanese stores have such tempting arrays of pastry and sweet and I couldn't resist them, I had full intention of using the mat to exercise. However, we were out sightseeing from morning till night so I didn't get a chance to. There were also quite a few Japanese DVDs on the shelves in the living room. Unfortunately, I don't know Japanese so couldn't watch them, not that I had time to. There is also a small washer in the apartment, no dryer but cloth pins for hanging up clothes to dry.
This place is also very convenient. It's only 10-min walk from Nishi-ogikubo station, which is on a JR line and only a few stops from Shinjuku station. The JR tourist pass as well as 1-day pass for 750 Yen cover these stations. There is a supermaket - Seiyu - at Nishi-ogikubo station, and a Lawson 100-yen store on the way from the station to the apartment. The Lawson store sells sweet potatoes grilled on hot stones for 100 yen each. Being a sweet potato lover, I always got one whenever I stopped at Lawson to buy water and snacks for our day trips. After we left Tokyo and this place, I kept checking every Lawson store I saw but didn't see any other which sells sweet potatoes like this.
My friends luggage was picked up by some careless traveler when we had a layover in Shanghai airport. The luggage was returned to Air China the next day and Air China was supposed to deliver it to us at the apartment. One day after another, my friends kept trying to get in touch with Air China or Narita airport to find out when their luggage would be delivered. Lionel went out of his way to help them get in touch with somebody. After they were given the runaround from one person to the next, Lionel spent a long time on the phone on their behalf. He let my friends use his phone number so Air China could call him, since our phone numbers don't work in Japan. The luggage was finally delivered before we left. So thankful for Lionel's help!

The 4 of us stayed at this apartment from the 24/4/15 to 9/5/15. The apartment is very clean and provides plenty of ammenities. Very suitable for a small group and much more spacious than what was expected. There is a golf driving range at the back of the apartment but you don't get any noise from it and it's quite fun to take a swing at! It is about 17 minutes from Shinjuku but there are great shopping places in kichijoji and Ogikubo which is both one station over. It is a short walk from the station and has plent of food sources in the surrounds. Lionel and Namika were incredibly helpful and accomodating. Easy to communicate with and 100% accessible if we had any questions. We're ally enjoyed our stay and can not say enough nice things about the apartment and the families in the complex. Thank you for having us! Would highly recommend to all my friends!
We stayed for a total of 15 days and 14 nights, the property is very cosy and very clean and provides more than enough for all your needs! Lionel and Namika and their family were incredibly helpful and easy to communicate with and were highly accessible when we needed them. The unit is 15 minutes from Shinjuku but kichioji and ogikubo were amazing shopping places so it's definitely a gem. There is a driving range out the back but you don't hear the noise at all and it's quite fun when you have a swing!! We can't say enough nice things about this place and the family who lives in the complex. Thank you so much for your help and providing us with a nice place to stay while we were on holiday. Would highly recommend for small groups!
Stayed here for a couple weeks during Christmas and New Year holiday with a couple friends. Lionel was very responsive to my emails leading up to my stay, and made sure I had everything I needed. I was arriving much earlier than my scheduled check-in time and he was happy to accomodate. The apartment is clean and relatively new with all essential appliances and amenities. He let us borrow a pocket-wifi for internet that we could take with us around town. Having the washing machine much more convenient than I had anticipated. On the last day he even gave my friends and I a ride to the station with all of our luggage! Amazingly generous!
The apartment is about a 5 minute walk to the station with many interesting shops and cafes along the way, as well as several convenience stores open 24 hours. Very easy to get anywhere around Tokyo from the station (Nishiogikubo). Very safe neighborhood with a nursery school/senior center right across the street.
Can't wait to stay here again next year! I will be telling my friends and family about this place also. Thanks Lionel!
The unit was much larger than we expected and very comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, the shower was great and the apartment was clean and comfortable.
The neighbourhood is terrific with lots of restaurants of different types (Japanese and western options), shops and markets. A short walk to the train station will take you anywhere you need to go.
The owners are onsite and very helpful. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others.
