Kyoto House Rental

Kyoto | Other

Offering private accommodation right in the heart of Kyoto, a self-catering holiday-home gives you the independence and flexibility for a genuinely relaxing city break. Mostly located in the Ginkaku-ji neighbourhood close to the Philosophers' Path, & in the Gion district, the options range from cosy couples’ retreats to spacious, family-friendly houses.

You can stay for just a few nights or settle in for a couple of weeks, allowing you to enjoy your holiday in your own time. Most properties are just a bus-ride from the city centre, providing easy access to the sights and attractions and a dizzying choice of places to eat. One of our ‘Travel Angels’ will give you the full tour before leaving you to explore your home-from-home, though they’ll stay on-call 24-hours a day should you want help or advice.

Each property is immaculately presented with fully-equipped kitchens at your fingertips, beautifully made beds and fresh towels in spotless bathrooms. Depending on your preference, you can opt for somewhere with traditional Japanese features such as futons, tatami flooring and shoji screen doors, or choose a more Western feel with large dining tables, plush sofas and elevated beds.

If you’re looking for outdoor space, some feature private gardens and roof terraces for soaking up the sun; if a convenient location is your priority, you can stay right in the centre without it costing the earth.  Whatever option you choose, you can be sure of uninterrupted time within your own, self-contained haven – pure bliss!
