I stayed at Gakuto Villa with three of my friends in Feb 2015. We thoroughly enjoyed the stay. The house is, firstly, beautiful, it's well kept, very tidy, clean, great heating system, decent location (walkable to the lifts if you want to; about 7 mins in boots, but still walkable nonetheless), and has a good foyer landing area that allows...

We stayed here for 6 nights to go skiing at Hakuba Happo Ono ski fields and it was a great choice. We are a family of 5 and the two bedroom villa was perfect. It was warm (underfloor heating all throughout), modern and cosy with a lovely outlook from the lounge area and master bedroom downstairs. We were a little... More

We stayed here with our 2 kids (8&10) and can highly recommend it! Beautiful villa with lots of fresh snow to play in just outside our door. The wet room in the bathroom is just amazing! Lovely, friendly staff who were so helpful making reservations for dinner and taking us to The Big to stock up on groceries. The kitchen... More

The lady who is the manger of the property is outstanding. My husband, unfortunately, hurt himselfskiing on the first day, but the staff were very helpful and willing to... More

We loved our 5-night stay. Family with 2 girls 19 and 14. Modern Scandinavian styling; tiled bathrooms; huge bedrooms; stunning private views out over the snow to the trees from floor to ceiling windows in bedrooms and lounge. The windows can be left uncovered as there are no overlooking buildings. The kitchen was adequate for basic meals. Good washing machine... More

Gakuto Villas were a perfect place to stay for our family of 4. The kitchen and bathrooms functioned well with two teenage boys and whilst there was no specific drying the room, the main bathroom doubled as a drying room. The view from every window was spectacular and the bus stop at the front of the villas made access to... More

Excellent place to stay, cozy and clean, plenty of space for 6 of us. Friendly and helpful staff, especially Yuki who can speak fluent English and help contact Happo-one while one of us lost his wallet on the slope and luckily he got the wallet back! Thanks to her! The location of the house is a bit far from main... More

January 2015, family with two boys 18 and 16, perfect location for restaurants and the slopes and the staff could not have been more helpful. Stunning Villas, nice and warm, if you can get Villa 12 its the best, right at the end of the property nestled in the trees.

I stayed here with my family and enjoyed it very much. Overall excellent. Some points: - The villa was very warm with good floor heating, we were never cold - There were two comfortable bedrooms (one one each floor). One had a king bed, the other two singles. There is an extra bed in the closet, so you can sleep... More

Our family of 4 (2 kids, 13 and 12 years old) loved staying in Gakuto Villas at Chinese New Year 2015. Very convenient - every night we walked to local restaurants - great variety within 10 minute walk. Only 10 min walk to slopes. We usually had morning pick up around 9-9:15 which was easy (for Evergreen or Hakuba Snow... More
