In summer the deck is a great place to sit out or enjoy a barbeque. The location is secluded and exclusive, yet only a 3 minute drive to both Annupuri and Niseko Village Ski Resorts (a car or the use of a taxi is recommended in winter as walking along the roads at night can be dangerous). It is possible to walk to Annupuri or Niseko Village Ski resorts in winter and then ski back to the house from Annupuri. The walk takes about 12-15 minutes, but we do not recommend you ski back unless you are an accomplished boarder/skier and are well familiar with the (off-piste) route.

We rented this awesome house for a week in January. Everything about this rental and the surrounding area was fantastic. Needless to say the powder was epic and that was topped by great food and wonderful onsens nearby.

Bedrooms and functional rooms are very well setup, giving independent space when needed while serving also big group needs. Wonderful kitchen and open area! Love the design and quality. No doubt it's a premium chalet with very reasonable rate. I regret paying for a 2-bedroom...More

About the neighborhood
Niseko is Japan's premium international ski resort and the house is a 3 minute drive from two of the four Niseko resorts: Annupuri and Niseko Village. It is also 5 minutes to Moiwa, 15 minute to Hirafu (Ace and Gondola) and a 25 minutes to Hanazono. Highlights - Powder snow: an average of 15 meters of fresh and dry powder falls here every year. You have to experience it to believe it. - Fantastic back-country skiing: Niseko offers lift access to some of the most extensive and fun off-piste skiing in Japan - Restaurants: there are numerous high quality Japanese and International restaurants in the area (several with one or more Michelin stars) for all tastes and budgets. Our favorites are Del Sole Pizzeria and Raku-ichi (traditional hand-made soba noodles and kaiseki dinner),...
Getting around
Getting around We recommend hiring a car with winter tires, preferably a 4WD. If you plan to rent in Niseko, we can recommend some rental companies - just ask us. We will provide a shuttle to the Annupuri Ski Resort in the mornings when the lifts open, and occasionally to an onsen in the evenings. You will be responsible for arranging your own transportation otherwise. It is possible to walk up to Annupuri Gondola (approx 13 mins) or down to Niseko Village (approx. 15 mins) but take care if you walk along the road at night as it can be slippery and dangerous. With the right level of skill and equipment it's possible to ski back to the house, but make sure you don't take any unnecessary risks, or trespass on other people's property.
