“Great for our family of 4”
This was an excellent little apartment for us. Supermarket so close, and easy walk to transport links. Well presented inside. Thanks Bruce for the detailed info ahead of our stay. Loved Tokyo and want to return!
“Couldn't ask for anything better~”
My friend and I stayed in Bruce's apartment for 3 weeks in august this year. I can honestly say that we can't wait to deal with him again for our trip next year. As a host, we couldn't ask anything more from Bruce. Every piece of information we needed was given to us and we never felt hesitant to contact him if we needed help. The space itself was perfect in location! 5minute walk to Shibuya station. 2 minute walk to the bustling streets full of restaurants, bars and shopping to suit all tastes. We felt very lucky with this apartment. Knowing that we were so central to the majority of Tokyo, we felt at ease when dealing with what can be such a confusing metro system. I'm looking forward to dealing with Bruce's services in the future. Highly recommended!!
“A nice apartment to discover Tokyo”
We discovered a very pleasant little apartment in a quiet street with lots of small shops and local restaurants (we recommend the restaurant Unagi in front of the apartment). It is very well located just minutes from the metro. Bruce, the owner is friendly and efficient ... Everything went very well during the rental. The apartment is clean and properly equipped for two people. Also thank you to Bruce for the mobile internet which is very convenient in Tokyo.
Bruce was the best. We had a hectic evening and were very tired and confused by the time we got to Shibuya station. He talked us through it on the phone and we were able to make it to Shinsen Station to meet him. He helped us with our luggage and explained everything quickly and thoroughly so we could get some rest. The place was perfect for our little family (2 adults and 2 children). It was minutes from food, groceries and transportation. If we ever make it back to Japan, I will definitely rent with Bruce again.
“Meguro vs Greenwich Village = Meguro Win!!!”
I'll start by mentioning that we stayed in 3 different places during our stay in Tokyo..1st was this place, next was the Hotel Sunroute, and last The Hyatt Regency. One for quirkiness, another for middle of the road comfort and finally one for ultimate luxury, yet by far Bruce's place was our favorite. From the convenience of strolling around a neighborhood that has the coziness of regular earthy Japan, to the ultra stylish boutiques echoing of a Greenwich Village in a less hipster more literary-cool era, Meguro, and Bruce's little apartment, had us sold! Seriously, easy access to everywhere. Counter to common beliefs wifi was a problem at both hotels - but for Bruce's he provided a pocket wifi that proved invaluable, as we went far off the beaten path from thrift stores, punk rock shows, art boutiques, to beautiful shrines. We had Tokyo wired our first 4 days mainly because of choosing Bruce's place first. He was awesome, responsive, clear, and laid back quirky (Like Del Toro's character in Basquiat). The apartment is small but cozy with all the amenities we needed, very small bathroom- with a family mart next door or an upscale 7/11 20 yards the other way, open all night. A takeout sushi mart 10secs further along across from the best noodle/dumpling/all night,cozy counter/restaurant we've been to it's called "Chinese oodle estaurant" ( we've been to many from Cambodia to Taiwan to Bali, of which we are writing from right now).There is an Italian trattoria next door as well. If you make it off this street and north, try Golden Brown (the Stranglers, right!) a uniquely smart and artful beer and burger cafe , and next door to alaska for vegan treats and coffee and design savvy intuitive owners yet still not hipster more accessible and deep house, also a 10min stroll to Binx Mexican, awesome! We will be staying at at one of Bruce's bigger places or even this one in the future. Highly recommended, if you get, you get it, if you don't you don't!? Carrillo's

“Quaint accomodations in the heart of Shibuya”
My husband and our 8 years old son just returned from a weeklong visit to Japan and stayed in this quaint studio apartment. Located just a quick 10 minute walk to Shibuya station it was the perfect home base for our adventures around Tokyo and is a short ride to the Shinkansen station in Shinagawa where we took the train for a day trip to Kyoto. Bruce has created a warm and inviting space in the middle of it all that is close to many restaurants (Blue Cafe is great for breakfast). Visiting from Seattle we were pleased to also find a wine bar (Soyokaze) just a 50m walk as you exit the building to the left which specializes in Oregon Wines (we hope to convince the owner Keiji to expand to include Washington wines as well :)
“Cute apartment in a great location!”
We stayed for five nights in this apartment and had a wonderful time. The owner, Bruce, was able to meet us early and show us around. The space is small, but very cute and neatly organized. Everything just worked. We were able to prepare meals, wash clothes and the wi-fi was a lifesaver. The bed was comfy and the apartment was well stocked with towels and linen. But best of all is the location, on a street lined with bars, shops and restaurants just a few minutes walk from Shibuya. You won't run out of things to do, that's for sure!
“Small but Excellent”
Fantastic experience here. The place is small - one room with kitchen and dining area - and not for families with multiple kids or kids who expect privacy, but families with one (or perhaps even two) small children - not to mention couples or solo travelers - would find this ideal and great bang for the buck. We were perfectly comfortable with our five year-old. The place is well-appointed, comfortable, super-clean and recently renovated, with a balcony and an amazing location about five minutes' walk from all the action in Shibuya and the Shibuya Metro, great restaurants and grocery stores virtually around the corner. Awesome owner who is a great communicator and attentive host. Some persnickety travelers might be a little turned-off initially by the older building, but we didn't care one bit with the location, value, and all of the other benefits. Great experience and we will be back if ever in Tokyo again. Thanks Bruce!
“Great location + cozy interior”
Bruce prepared us a vacation home with more than just basic needs.Though a bit worn from the building exterior, the apartment itself has been nicely redone. Small but unbelievably clean, the apartment has an open kitchen loaded with cookware and tableware ready for a feast any time. One master bed in decent size with another mattress being able to slide out for up to four guests, we found it cozy to have good night sleep. Insulation of the house might not perform against the early March chill in Tokyo, a heater and heating blankets did work for us except taking a bit time to warm up. Location is superb for exploring the city. Located in a quaint alley, surrounded by charming small shops, the apartment is only a few minute walk from a subway station. Busy street leading to Shibuya station is just close by. We had great time from this trip and wouldn't do without a lodging location like this. I am more than glad to recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a satisfying budget staying.
“Awesome! Even in crisis!”
We arrived in Tokyo on Mar. 10th, 2011 and got settled in. The next day, plans changed. We spent a bit more time "at home" here than we expected to that week, and still enjoyed it, and the surrounding neighborhood immensely. Bruce made sure we were OK during the first few hours after the quake, and was immensely helpful, checking up on us a few times. We hope to come back!
