"Rustic" 45 square meter loft in one of Tokyo most sought after neighborhoods. South facing, floor to ceiling windows on to balcony. AMAZING sunlight, very quiet part of Naka Meguro, walking distance to Shibuya.

My place is close to restaurants and dining. You’ll love my place because of the ambiance, the neighborhood, the comfy bed, and the light. Good for couples and solo adventurers.

If this one is booked, check my profile for other flats:

Beatrice's flat is bright, clean and located in a great area. We enjoyed our stay with no hassles and loved the relative spaciousness there. This building is old, so the apartment isn't equipped with the usual fancy Japanese toilet, in case that matters to you. Also, there is no elevator, if going up 3 flights of stairs is a problem for you then don't stay here. Everything works well, but if you expect a fancy place to stay, this is not it. It is a nice place with character which we prefer! There are clear instructions for everything there for you, so you are well informed and not wondering about what to do. We stayed here with our 7 year old and recommend it to others with smaller kids!

Beatrice's loft is an amazing space in one of the cutest Tokyo neighbourhoods! My wife and I were thrilled to be able to spend our honeymoon at this loft. The apartment is a convenient and scenic walk away from Naka-Meguro and Shibuya stations, making it super easy to get around Tokyo (and even to outside Tokyo). The building is also a quiet and cozy retreat for the end of the day. There are also lots of handy items around, presumably left by previous guests, that add convenience to daily outings (iPhone battery pack, umbrellas, etc). Beatrice also provided us with plenty of information about living the apartment (how to use the bath, use the AC, separate recycling, etc), and lots of suggestions on how to get around, as well as where to visit in the neighbourhood. All in all, a super considerate host. We're already dreaming of our next trip back, and would be delighted to stay at Beatrice's loft again!

Beatrice is very organized and the apartment was just as described, with explicit instructions on how to use the water heater and all other equipment in the flat. The bed was very comfortable with nice linens and the view from the big windows is great over the Tokyo skyscape! The location is excellent for wandering the canal along the river, too, with lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants.

Great spot - the area is fabulous and once you climb the stairs the apartment is great - old school charm and quirky but very comfortable indeed - was a perfect stay and I’d come again

Beatrice outlined each step accurately. There seemed to be some confusion with the cab drivers anytime we had them input the address. I suggest getting dropped off near the coffee shop if there seems to be any confusion with the transportation. The listing was immaculate and the location was roughly 15-18 minute walk from the famous Shibuya Crossing. There is a main road walking distance from the listing that has plenty of shops, family marts, and eateries. I would definitely suggest this listing again to any of my friends. The biggest downside to this listing is that there was no easy access to the third floor so take that into account when lugging your luggage up the stairs. All in all, I would definitely recommend this listing.

Really enjoyed our stay at Beatrice’s place! Though you don’t meet her her communication is great and we loved her thorough recommendations and tips for the area. The location is great, nice and quiet but good accessibility to surrounding areas and heaps to explore. Loved the plants, natural light and balcony at the apartment. The only issue we had was the bed being slightly small for my partner, but you get used to that in Japan! Thanks again Beatrice :)
