I stayed here with my family and enjoyed it very much. Overall excellent. Some points: - The villa was very warm with good floor heating, we were never cold - There were two comfortable bedrooms (one one each floor). One had a king bed, the other two singles. There is an extra bed in the closet, so you can sleep...

Our family of 4 (2 kids, 13 and 12 years old) loved staying in Gakuto Villas at Chinese New Year 2015. Very convenient - every night we walked to local restaurants - great variety within 10 minute walk. Only 10 min walk to slopes. We usually had morning pick up around 9-9:15 which was easy (for Evergreen or Hakuba Snow...

Located in picturesque Wadano, Gakuto Villas were pretty much perfect. The villas are modern, with excellent underfloor heating, and comfortably furnished. The small kitchen is basic, but adequate. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. My only criticism would be the lack of a dedicated drying room. There's plenty of dedicated storage space for skis etc in the foyer, but that...

Everything you need on a ski break .. Highly recommended! The location and service are excellent and quite a picturesque setting. Close to the slopes and amenities and in the old Olympic Village. Also has a good pickup service to and from the bus stop.

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...

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.

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 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...

“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!”
