About this listing

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 space

The Owl House is a brand new, 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.

The Owl House is perfect! Very central location with a beautiful outlook, super well appointed (heated floors, drying room) and spotless. We had 6 adults and the listing had room to spare- even with all our ski equipment. There are many great restaurants a short walk away and the staff was incredibly helpful with transport and great recommendations. 5 stars!

I highly recommend the Owl House. The house itself was immaculate, much larger than the pictures portrayed. There were 9 of us and we all fit quite comfortably. The service was terrific, all our airport transfers were arranged by Ally and her team and the staff continually bent over backwards to accomodate us. It was a pleasure staying there and we will certainly be returning customers.

Brand new modern house in the lower village peacefully nestled amongst the trees with views to Mt Yoeti. Lovely Onsen, well serviced during our stay and very comfortable and functional for a family. Close to a choice of traditional eateries from budget to high end, but book early many get snapped up quickly. Shuttle bus at stop 5 is needed to get to main Gondola and a flight of stairs to walk up to reach it. Local outdoor Onsens and spas centres located near by. Walkable up hill to the main street.

The Ow House is the go to place to stay in Niseko. My friends and I had a fantastic time. It is a big, new, fun house that is central and close to the ski shuttle bus. I would highly recommend.
