About the Homestay
Modern, three-storey house in a quiet, traditional neighbourhood just four minutes' walk from both Tengachaya Station (Nankai Line and Sakaisuji Line) and the historical Kita Tengachaya Tram Station (Hankai Line) . All of the key sites are accessible from here and we are a direct train ride from Kansai Airport. Restaurants, supermarkets, shops and other facilities are all within five minutes' walk. We provide complimentary tea, coffee and toast with jam and other spreads. I’m sure you’ll have a great experience at my place and I’m looking forward to meeting you!

About the Area
Tengachaya Station is a hub of activity night and day but as soon as you move away from the station, things quieten down. We are 320 meters from the station, so only 4 minutes way on foot but in a quiet zone. There are dozens of shops and restaurants within walking distance and prices here are cheaper than Namba and Umeda. Tengachaya has been a residential area for over 400 years, and you can see evidence of this long history all around our neighbourhood. Come and see, you'll love it!

Craig and Ana were such lovely hosts! Very welcoming and responsive, and had some nice suggestions for places to visit. Their home was clean and comfortable, and they were available in the evenings to chat. Really enjoyed my stay with them and would definitely like to stay again if I’m ever in Osaka again in the future!
I had a really great time at Ana's and Craig's house. It was located in a really convenient area (only three to four minutes to the station) and I felt really welcomed. We often talked in the evening, ate together in the morning and I got a lot of recommendations what to do or where to eat in the area and in Osaka generally. They're really nice people and I hope we see each other again.
If I'll go to Osaka again I'd really like to stay with them again!
Many greetings to them!!

Ana and Craig are such wonderful hosts – we greatly enjoyed their company and our only regret was not staying longer. Their home is beautiful, clean, and very comfortable. Its location makes it very convenient to get around in Osaka and to visit Kyoto, Nara, and Kobe as well, once you make it out of the local area which is so lovely! Ana was so helpful from day 1 helping us settle in and providing directions. We absolutely loved our trip in Japan and are so thankful to Ana and Craig for sharing their home and a piece of Osaka; we look forward to visiting again :)
Wir wurden sehr herzlich aufgenommen, und wir haben uns sofort zu Hause gefühlt.
Ana und Craig sind hervorragende Gastgeber.
Unser Zimmer war deutlich größer als erwartet und sehr gut eingerichtet.
Da weder Ana, noch Craig Japaner sind, aber schon lange in Japan leben, konnten sie uns wertvolle Informationen für unsere Reise in Japan geben.
Our stay at Ana's home was absolutely P.E.R.F.E.C.T! Ana and Craig are really wonderful and kind! The house is amazing and the decoration is really nice. The room is clean and very cute with the balcony! The most beautiful homestay of our travel! This place is more than a homestay, it's a true experience! We shared really nice moments with Ana and Craig!
An experience that went above and beyond my expectations. Ana is a wonderful host who is very compassionate and helpful. Whether you've been to Japan before, or visiting for your first time, this is probably our best option in terms of homestay. I've thanked her many times, but I will thank her again in this review. Great atmosphere, clean home, and fantastic people.
This was my favorite so far, Craig, Ana and Praja were all great hosts. They treated us like family to the point that I didn't want to leave. They gave us many great recommendations that were easily accessible. We wish we could have been with them for a longer period. I would highly suggest staying with them if you get the opportunity. ❤
I had such an amazing stay at Ana and Craig's home, not only they made me feel so welcomed they gave me loads of tips on places to visit, transportation and places to eat. Their home was beautifully decorated and I instantly felt it was a home from home. If you're thinking of staying in Osaka hands down I would highly recommend staying with Ana and Craig.
Ana & Greg were great homestay, we really enjoyed interacting with them. If you plan to go to Osaka, we recommand them as Home Stay. Good location, near the subway station & the supermarket.
Ana et Greg sont des personnes très agréables, tout simplement formidables. Ils font tout pour nous faciliter notre intégration, et la maison est top. Au niveau de la chambre, elle est géniale, pas de bruit. La salle de bains-douche est parfaite. La maison est proche du métro. Je recommande ces hôtes que vous apprécierez prochainement lors d'une visite sur Osaka et sa région.
