We stayed in Fubuki 3 for a week during CNY (Feb 2015). The booking process was very efficient and Pippa was extremely helpful in providing help booking things beyond the property itself, including van hire and transfer from Sapporo. All this was handled swiftly and all panned out as expected on arrival. A very smooth experience all in all. The property itself was very clean, tasteful and comfortable. We were extremely happy to have it cleaned every day and it proved a wonderful location for our group of 10 to base ourselves in during our trip. I'd recommend the property to any group of this size and we are already considering return visit.
Really nothing to fault about this great apartment. Particularly enjoyed the lit up view of the surrounding trees at night, when sitting in the spacious living room. Location is very close to the lifts and shops, but just about far away enough to be very quiet.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone!
We were a group of 9 adults and 7 children. The kids' ages ranged from just under 2 years to 11 years. We stayed in the Fubuki 1 and 2.
Very speedy communication by Pippa, the owner. A response was never more than a few hours away. She was efficient ( booked all our transfers and gave good advice as to which restaurants would best suit our large noisy group), and accommodating ( automatically offering the placement of sail-cloths to cover the staircase railings to protect the little ones). She also worried on our behalf that the houses might be a little overcrowded, and let us know prior to booking ( they weren't; the split levels work very well at spreading everyone out, although it did help that 7 people in our group weighed less than 30kg each).
During the trip:
Although situated in the lower village, John, the property manager, and his team provided excellent transport service, dropping all of us off at the ski lifts each morning, and picking us up by the end of the day. They stayed with us as we stumbled through the ski rental collection process, and were kind in their patience while dealing with the chaoticness of travel in a big group. They were never more than a phone call away, and having this 'concierge' service made this much more than just a home rental. Should one decide to walk, Yukoro onsen, Rin izakaya and Momiji-zaka street were all a 5 minute walk away.
The homes themselves were fully equipped and nothing short of wonderful. Finishings were high quality, and almost everything we needed was thoughtfully provided. We were able to cook rice, blend smoothies and make pancakes. Highchairs for the toddlers were kindly provided for. It was a true home away from home. In-house catering and food drop-off provided by Tess and her team were executed perfectly and well appreciated after a long day on the slopes.
We will definitely be back!
Stayed in Fubuki 3 in January this year. We stayed with another family with small children and we all fit in very comfortably.All ammenities such as soaps, shampoo etc are included.
Beautiful modern townhome with quality finishings. Modern large kitchen. Beautiful views to the birch forest which the townhome backs onto.
Close to restaurants such as the Barn and the village onsen - worth a visit!
Great concierge service from John who organises pick ups and drop offs to the slopes every day...especially good if you are travelling with little kids like we were!
We loved Niseko's powder ! Ski school is good and night skiing is fantastic. We even had three bluebird days in a row ! Thoroughly recommend.
Fubuki Townhouses are an excellent place to base yourself whilst holidaying in Hirafu. Located in a handy position in the lower village within an easy walk to pretty much the whole village, Fubuki ticked all our boxes. The layout over 3 floors made it easy for the family to spread out and have your own space whilst not on the slopes. The kitchen and cooking facilities were excellent and the lounge and dining area very comfortable. Having 3 bedrooms with their own bathrooms make life easy - no sharing! The transport to the ski lifts each day was handy and the townhouse was decked out with everything you needed. Loved it and have already booked for next year.
