“Perfect location and had everything we needed”
Reviewed April 16, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed in this cottage for five nights in April, three adults and three teenagers. House was as it looked in pictures and was equipped with everything we needed. The day we arrived it was snowing and was very cold outside, the heating in the house was awesome. Neil who managed our booking was great and extremely helpful, let is in at 2am on a very chilly morning, and kept in contact with us during our stay ensuring we were all good. He also organised our ski rental which was quick and tireless.

Leading up to our arrival Neil also offered lots of adviice on how to get around and the to and from Hakuba during April as this is low season and most transport services stop. This meant we were well prepared and had car rental , transfers etc already organised before our arrival.

The Internet in the house was second to none and the amount of movies available on the Apple TV ensured it kept our teenagers very content after a long day on the slopes. The house is walking distance to many restaurants and whilst they were not all open every night during our stay, we had no problems finding a great place to eat. There are several grocery/convenience stores in Hakuba that have everything you need should you prefer to dine in, the kitchen is very well equipped and has a massive amount of fridge/freezer space.

Bathroom was large and very clean with a seperate toilet. Shower area also doubles as a drying room for your wet snow gear. The shower itself was amazing and was the perfect end on a cold day. There is also a seperate washer/dryer which was very handy and easy to understand and use thanks to the instructions left.

I would definitely stay at this cottage again, or if travelling with a smaller or larger group another cottage through the same Management as they were so easy to deal with. The pricing was fair and the service above and beyond expectation.

“FABULOUS HOMESTAY IN HAKUBA!”
Reviewed January 17, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We are 3 adults and 3 children mainly new skiers. we contacted Neil before our trip who gave us invaluable advice on ski rental, lift passes and ski school. Neil also gave us advice on how to get from Haneda to Hakuba (used Cho Taxi). The house is wonderful. In a beautiful part of the valley; close to the main street in echo-land. The house was warm and very clean. the kitchen is really well stocked. Neil met us at the house and took us shopping and around town to orientate us. The shower room is fantastic and the bedrooms are lovely. lots of towels and shampoo etc. House is very warm, great wifi and apple TV etc. Neil took us to the bus station at the end of our trip. We will return!

“Absolutely outstanding in every way.”

Best decision ever to choose this rental. Neil went above and beyond for us from picking us up and dropping us off from the bus stop, organizing lift tickets and gear rental and even shopping for groceries. The house itself was cosy and warm, very welcoming and beautifully funished.
here are your top 10 reasons to book this property.
1. overall service and help from Neil himself, what a nice guy to deal with.
2. supermarket runs every second day with Midori who helped us find all food items as well as shoes, gloves ect..
3. five minute walk to great restaurants
4. very pretty location and bus stop to ski fields in the same street as the house
5.Nespresso machine for great morning coffee
6. washing /dryer combination
7. awesome shower after long days out
8. TV had heaps of recorded shows to watch and DVD player
9. space in the bathroom for drying snow gear ready for next day
10. free Wi Fi - handy for so many reasons
Proximity to ski fields and the amount of snow, especially powder snow makes Hakuba a dream spot and this property in Echoland will get you to Hakuba 47, Gyoru or Happo one very easy.
Don't hesitate at all, you have made the right decision, just book it!
Thankyou again Neil, we had a very memorable vacation.

“Great Stay - Again !”
Reviewed March 18, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Stayed at the cottage for 8 days with a family of 4, including 2 children aged 5 and 7. Everyone had a fantastic time. The house is located in a quiet area but with great bus connections to all the main Hakuba ski areas. The bus stops are across the street from the house. Shopping and restaurant options are all walking distance and the owner organizes grocery trips several times a week to help get supplies back from larger supermarkets. The cottage itself is well laid out with all the required equipment. This is our 2nd stay...and hopefully not the last.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had the best time staying at Hakuba Yukimatsu Cottages. Neil the host was so helpful, from picking us up at the bus station, to helping us book and collect our ski gear, and even providing a hairdryer one night when we needed one. Neil and his assistant Midori were so friendly, they gave plenty of useful advice on the area, where to eat and drink, and even took us on trips to the supermarket. Nothing was too much trouble and this made all the difference to our stay. The cottage itself had everything you could ask for, was cozy and stylish, had full amenities and was in a great location - just a short walk from the main street. We will definitely be back next year!

“Just brilliant ”
Reviewed March 4, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have had a fantastic time staying in this property. It's comfortable, clean, spacious and has everything you need. Walk into town and bus stops to ski fields outside the door.
What makes this property extra special is the genuine care of the host, Neil. From picking us up from the bus, organising ski equipment, shopping trips, tours and other assistance, nothing is too much trouble. Thank you for a wonderful time

“Cosy cottage , short walk to Echo Land.”
Reviewed March 2, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Neil was very accommodating with showing us around the area and explaining what to do, where to go to get the most out of a great Hakuba Ski holiday.
The cottage was very neat and tidy having a recent complete renovation. Shower and bath were brilliant (very important after a big day on the slopes) and whilst winding down after an action packed day, the Apple TV had a great range of western movies and TV shows to choose from.
Highly Recommended.
Liam
