Stayed there from 13-21 Dec 2014 with the family and found the place very cozy, new and clean. We took the 2 bedder unit and it can easily accommodate 4 people. Cooking facilities were basic but enough to cook simple meals at home. Home came with floor heating and a washer/dryer for laundry and had 2 toilet/baths. We also had...

Thank you very much for staying with us! It's great to hear the feedback from you. Our location is between Kokusai slope and Sakka slope. The bus stop for Happo one and Hakuba 47 is just in front of our villas so it's very convenient even if you don't have a car! We are located in quiet and settled area...

We are a family of five with 3 boys under 12. The Vila was large and spacious, with huge comfy beds, beautiful Scandinavian design and a large functional dining and kitchen. All areas had lovely underfloor heating which was essential in the -4 weather. We came to Hakuba from 13 December to 20th December- this was before the shuttle buses...

We stayed at Gakuto Villas for 6 nights in February 2014. They are great for a family offering two bedrooms, plenty of space to spread out and lots of storage space for ski gear. The villas are clean, warm, attractive and comfortable, with a beautiful aspect - lots of light. Very well located in the heart of Hakuba. An easy...

Nicely designed, sleek modern Japanese cottages. Really comfortable and excellently appointed. Wifi, Skype phones, heated floors, cool bathrooms, nicely equipped kitchen (for breakfast cooking, at least) and really nice Scandanavian/Japanese feel to the place. Hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings. Views are not so great (unless you like rusty tractors), but a nice setting in the woods with the noise of the...

The two storey villa suited our family (2 adults and 2 boys) perfectly. Everything was new, clean and well-presented. The villas are located in the Wadano area, about a 5 minute drive from the Hakuba train station and a similar distance to the Happo area and ski gondola etc. Our host, Yokokawa-san, was amazing. He was always helpful, prompt and...

Really nice villas - some of the reviews here have the issues highlighted - it's very modern so the stairs are a fall hazard for children (can be mitigated with baby gates they have), and the downstairs room is massive, but does get hot and has a small-ish bed. Not a game breaker though. The furnishings are really modern, there...

We stayed at Gakuto for five nights and wish it could have been longer!

The whole place was extremely comfortable, and...

“We had Villa02, which received a bit of noise on the Saturday night with revelling skiiers heading home - perhaps the higher numbers, off the street, would not suffer this. But I only mention it for people who would prefer absolute quiet - we loved being so close to the bus stop!”
