  • We spent just over a week in Hakuba and would highly recommend this villa. We stayed in a large one bed villa with a bright spacious bedroom upstairs, well equipped kitchen downstairs with a comfortable living space. The wifi was excellent and we used their apple tv to stream movies.We also had the use of bikes and a car while we were there. The bikes were great for exploring locally and the car for shopping and getting to nearby trailheads. Paul and Kanako were excellent hosts. They picked us up from the train station when we arrived and gave us lots of tips on the local area...

  • From the moment we booked to our sensational stay in Hukuba, Paul and Kanako were fantastic hosts offering amazing advice, helping us around town and to the ski resorts. The cabins were lovely and great to return to after a day out on the slopes. It was great to be able to relax, watch Netflix and cook a meal in the self contained villas...

  • Literally was the perfect stay. We anticipated it would be because of all the good things we'd heard about this place prior to our stay and we weren't disappointed. The communication from both Paul and Kanako from the second we booked was excellent...

  • Kanako, Paul and their awesome instructor son, were great hosts. Very friendly and helpful in every way. The villa was more than we expected it to be. Fully equipped, spacious and very comfortable. Great location with easy access to shops and supermarket. Friends who view our pix were very impressed. Balls Deep Inn will top our list if we ever visit Hakuba again!!
