My Unforgettable HomeAway experience
I guess for those who have read my blog before; you know that I don’t really prefer sharing house with strangers during my stay mainly because I don’t like to share the toilet with other people. Also, I guess for girls it’s really dangerous if you have to share your homestay with another man or a group of men.
Not until I experienced HomeAway, I just can’t not share this vacation rental site with you guys. It is more private and you can enjoy the whole space with your family or your friends. This makes the whole experience more fun and enjoyable. I’m so happy that HomeAway listed and collaborated with Setouchi because it makes the whole booking process much easier with everything written nicely on their website.
Why? Because most of the private houses / apartments in suburbs of Japan are really hard to book. Either it’s all in Japanese or they don’t even provide online booking system. So it’s really hard for us book them ourselves since most of us can’t communicate in Japanese language at all. lol. Thank you HomeAway for making it happen by connecting everything in one place.
Our HomeAways in Setouchi
The 3 listings we stayed during our trip were just amazing! No words can express my whole new experience staying in Setouchi. It was lovely and I felt at home. The owner of the house prepared breakfast for us every morning and took care of us like his own family. The breakfast was so yummy and I miss it now :'( Never thought the breakfast was included in our stay but this is why it melted my heart lol.
Another important note that I would love to share with you guys is…
All of our stays were surrounded by many nice local restaurants which serve great food and their locations are convenient for sightseeing in Uchiko Town.
The first historic listing is an over 100 years old house that was newly renovated in Uchiko-town, Ehime prefecture.
You will be surprised that the entire second floor of this house belonged to us and it has a super huge living area which can fit up to 6 persons (best choice to travel with a group of family or friends). Also, we enjoyed our breakfast with a nice garden view which was located on the first floor. BTW, There’s also a cafe on the first floor!!
We even got a super-huge space for us to chill.
The garden was beautiful.
This is the first floor where we get served our daily breakfast… Look at the whole interior!! Mad Love!
Both the second and third stay had a beautiful courtyard right in front of the Japanese-style room. We even spotted a surprise guest, Mr.Raccoon which came to the courtyard and said hello to us! Overwhelmed with the amount of surprise that I received everyday during our trip. ahahahah!
