Retaining the warm and quaint features of the traditional home, Tonbo House has been lovingly renovated with modern appliances, and newly furnished to offer a moving experience to feel the fusion of the traditional and modern atmosphere.
It can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people (8+2). It has 4 x two person bedrooms plus a traditional upstairs tatami area that has two futon mattresses.
The entry way opens into a lobby area, where you are immediately given a glimpse the traditional structure of the building, with amazing 200-year-old oak beams. After this area you enter into a spacious open plan living dining area and an open kitchen.
The stylish bright red kitchen has modern appliances with an IH stove top, grill, microwave, advanced oven, fridge freezer and all the kitchen utensils you will need.
There is a large open plan living/dining area with plenty of sofa space for everyone to relax around the wood burning stove, or seated around delicious meals, on the spacious 3 meter long dining table.
