Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

Whether you are looking to get out for an adventure or to get away from it all, this is the place. Our space has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, with a spacious living room in between. The balcony faces the spectacular sunset; early risers, view the sunrise over the scenery with coffee on the balcony.

From the balcony, there is excellent room for star-gazing under the clear night sky!

The room was very clean and larger than I expected. There is a super market which takes a two-minute walk from the house. The gas burner was available so my parents was able to buy something and cook whenever they want. The location of the house was not close to the center of Tachikawa city. But the railway was convinent if you want to go Shinjuku. Moreover, it was very quiet in the evening and my parents always slept well during the stay. The host was always reachable. During our stay, he installed a wired internet access with Wifi available.

This will be really long, as this may have been my worst Airbnb experience, yet. I've used four Airbnb apartments for my latest stay in Japan. I've stayed in Fukuoka, two apartments in Osaka, and one in Tokyo, which was this apartment. My nine days stay in Tokyo was full of disappointments as the apartment was too far from the city (ex. Shibuya, etc.). It's basically out of nowhere. We're a family of four, and we needed to pay 370 yen from Musashi Sunagawa to Takadanobaba, and then transfer to the Yamanote Line which is about 170 yen. Funny because that's just for a single trip. Fortunately, we had the JR pass, but that's just for the JR lines, Yamanote included. Since his apartment is near the Seibu line, we had no choice but to pay 370 yen per person every time we're heading to the city, and back. It was such a mistake to choose his place. I advice you not to be tricked by its low price since at the end, you'll have to pay for the expensive train fare too. If it’s just 140 yen, it’s fine. But his place is obviously out of nowhere, that’s why the fare is too high. Most importantly, the host is VERY rude. Other guests may have had a good stay because first, they may not be heading to the city everyday, and second they chose not to complain about anything to Don. But I'm telling you, he doesn't solve the problems addressed to him. The wi-fi didn't work properly. It worked after five days, but was still very slow. I've read other reviews, and was successful to find some people complaining about his wi-fi too. He said he called the internet provider, but even after I said that it still doesn't work, he stopped replying. About his other amenities, there were no enough paper towels (he only provided four sheets lol) since he failed to provide us a rag for cleaning the table, no toothbrush provided just like other Airbnb apartments, and no broom or sweeper to clean the floor. He also provided super cheap shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap which have caused us intense dandruff, and skin allergies. We went to the doctor, and the doctor said that it's indeed caused by a harsh product. Next, the laundry detergent, and fabric softener which he refused to provide us even though he had a washing machine. Funny because there were empty bottles of Ariel laundry detergent, and another brand of fabric conditioner left behind the washing machine. Thus, he gladly provided for the others while he failed to do it to us. He said that it's because previous guests had different preferences, which is ridiculous because he provided us those shampoo, conditioner, and bath soap which ruined our scalp, and skin. Stop providing cheap amenities then! Not because the price of your place is ‘cheap', you're allowed to give us harsh, and cheap products. And now, since it has come...

Response from Donald:
It's unfortunate Joanne chose to leave such a dishonest review. It seems it is retaliatory for holding her accountable for missing towels, a damaged wall, and pots burned beyond repair. She spoke about slow wifi, but leaves out there were 4 guests streaming and downloading movies from 4 different laptops. She is correct, there is no broom because there's a vacuum cleaner. There were plenty of extra sponges and rags, but Joanne made no attempts to clean. Our cleaner reported human waste left in the toilet, sanitary napkins in the bed, shower, and kitchen sink. Our place is far from the city, however, we state this in the description and also the map clearly reflects this. I'm not quite sure how she determines our products are cheap, but I won't even engage that remark. I only encourage guests to read ALL our reviews, so they may get a more accurate picture of our hosting history.

The listing was quite accurate. Upon arrival we found that the host expects everyone staying there to know and be able to read Japanese which we do not, so we're unable to use many amenities as there were no directions available like it said would be provided. Its safe to say that the host has many of these units listed and doesn't know what is in each unit, as we were told things would be provided that weren't. If you know Japanese I would suggest this place, very close to the station and a grocery store.
