Newly built for the 2015/16 season, the Owl House is a fresh take on traditional Niseko accommodation. With Mt Yotei views, three bedrooms, luxurious soaking tub and full kitchen facilities, The Owl House is your home away from home; only better.
The Owl House is a three bedroom ski chalet nestled amongst the trees in Lower Hirafu at the base of Mt Niseko-Annupuri. With Mt Yotei views from the lounge and the sound of the nearby creek, this house is a piece of mountain paradise. The house takes inspiration from one of the rarest birds in the world, the Hokkaido Owl. To the indigenous Ainu people of Hokkaido, this owl is the spiritual protector of the area.
The house accommodates up to eight people with flexible bed configurations to suit singles, couples, and families:
- master ensuite with king bed or twin singles;
- tatami mat room with twin futons;
- second bedroom with queen bed and the option of a fold down set of bunk beds.
Downstairs a Japanese-style wood panelled bathroom includes a soaking tub (ofuro) and a shower that can be used either standing or sitting as is traditional in Japan.
The modern kitchen is equipped with: a coffee machine, dishwasher, rice cooker, grill, hot plates and convection microwave oven.
There is a generous entry area and purpose built drying room making getting in and out of your gear a breeze.
The Owl House incorporates the latest thermal comfort and energy efficient technologies with super insulation, triple-glazed windows and energy recovery ventilation. A hybrid heat pump system powers the panel and floor heating while a drain water heat recovery and ground source heat pump minimise the environmental footprint of your hot showers and luxurious soaking tub sessions.
