Please note we are closed due to C19 from March 25 until its safe to reopen as the safety of our staff and guests come 1st. We thank you for your understanding and hope you and your family stay safe during these unusual days. Update: Nagano Prefecture has requested we remain closed until May 6, we will make a further assessment based on their advice after that date.
Please note if you are coming to Hakuba to party hard we are not the place for you. You will be much better off staying up in Echoland or Wadano etc where the looser bars are that have the biggest nights.
But if you are a family and small group who wants to come and experience the amazing Hakuba Valley as we do our stylish new apartments with great mountain views is just the place for you. We are located very close to major transport hubs (train and bus), shuttle buses to the resorts leave very close by and you are just minutes walk to some of Hakuba's best restaurants and onsens which a frequented by locals and visitors alike. If on one night or so you feel like a bigger night out, Echoland is a short 10 min taxi trip away.
The beautiful mountain views from the open plan kitchen, dining and living areas help you relax when not on the mountain and all apartments come with western style kitchens including an oven and all you need to cook for your group. The apartments are fully equipped with everything you need for a great stay including a washing machine and drier and your comfort after a day on the mountain has been our priority when designing these. With underfloor heating and double glazed windows the environmental footprint of our builds has been another key priority.
You will find everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There is a large flat screen TV and Netflix is set up for those nights you just want to chill with a movie or catch up on your favourite series. If you prefer to listen to your own music there is a nice JCB bluetooth speaker and we also have Monopoly, Uno and Jenga, with some interesting books from our personal library should you prefer to read. On the walls you will find indigenous art from Australia and images from local photographers. Needless to say, the apartments are also fully equipped with WiFi.
If you are here to enjoy your snow sports in winter or green season activities such as hiking and mountain biking and/or want a place ideal for families we are perfectly located being a 3 minute walk from the Hakuba Train Station and its bus stop. This area has a wide range of restaurants with English menus and we are happy to provide recommendations. It is only a 5 minute walk to the supermarket if you want to cook and a short taxi ride to Echoland if you want a latish night out. (Please note some of the ammenities such as the garden and bbq are only available during the summer).
With 9 resorts close at hand staying central is the key and the shuttles to most resorts are a very short walk away. Although we suggest to get the most from your stay hiring a car is a great option and we can help with that and one car park is provided onsite free of charge, but you may need to help dig your car out on those big mornings!
Please check our policies and conditions prior to booking and note that like all accommodation of this type in Hakuba a security deposit will be taken at the time of booking and we will return that to you in cash at check out.
