  • Villa Z was cozy and well appointed with everything we needed for our 6 day stay (including Netflix for the kids!) The car is a huge bonus and gave us the opportunity to explore a number of resorts within and beyond the Hakuba Valley and made dining out, shopping and our visit to the Onsen easy. Tony is the perfect host - wonderfully accommodating and focused on ensuring you have a great stay. We were grateful for the orientation tour and bus drop off. Highly recommended!

  • Tony was absolutely the perfect host, this accommodation totally exceeded our expectation and nothing was ever too much. Tony went over and above to accommodate our family and we could not have asked for a better host. I was a little unsure about the the villa accommodating us and our 2 teenage sons but it was absolutely fine - we have already booked our trip for 2020!! Having the car was a complete game changer and allowed us to ski all of the slopes with ease.

  • Tony is an awesome host! He showed us around, gave us awesome tips on what to do and where to eat. Having the van made everything so easily accessible and the Villa was epic!
