Places to see and things to do include:

  • Snow Monkey Onsen

  • 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!

  • 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...
