I travelled with my spouse and 2 friends end Feb to Hakuba for 6-days ski holidays. From the website pictures it wasn't very attractive but we were in a short notice trip so not much place available. We ended up booked the Cats Villa Birman (villa #4, the Cats Villa has 4 units), it has 3 bed rooms (1 suite on second floor with living room & kitchen, 2 bed rooms on first floor) equip with one on-suite bath/toilet, one guest toilet on second floor and one bath room with laundry area and an additional toilet on the first floor. To my pleasant surprise, the rooms are spacious and equipment are very new. Heated floor with heated unit in every room. The window looks out to the mountain (between Kokusai and Sakka lifts so can walk to ski. Since we have rented a car so we rather drive to the lift directly which gave us more flexibility. It is so much better than renting a hotel room if you are there with friends!! We booked off-peak rate (after Feb 23) at JPY65000 per night (only thing is Black Bear will pass along the credit card fee for credit card payment, be aware). The property is not difficult to find and Desmond was kind enough to guide us at road junction on our arrival.
