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 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.

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.

We absolutely LOVED our stay at the Owl House! My family and I (5 in total) spend a week here for the skiing season. The house was very new, comfortable, spacious, warm and clean. It had everything you needed and more; from towels, hair dryers, wifi, a Nespresso machine, rice cooker, to even an apple TV, just to name a few! The location was also perfect - very close to the free shuttle bus that takes you to the Gondola in Hirafu (the main area) and walking distance to the shops and restaurants. There wasn't anything we could fault about this lovely place! Finally, what made our stay so enjoyable and unique was the incredibly helpful team of hosts looking after us. Our flights into Sapporo got cancelled due to bad weather, and the hosts were unbelievably supportive and resourceful in coming up with ways of getting to Niseko. If you had any questions or concerns they were just a phone call away. We are very grateful and highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic time at owl house, place was beautiful and clean (we had people come in to clear the place every 3rd day!). Guys were easy to get in touch with and even left a mobile phone for us so we can contact them directly. Location is fantastic (walking distance to bars and restaurants) and is surrounded by beautiful scenery. I would deft recommend to others and will come back to stay.

This was the most beautiful and well located property. Oh host was very helpful. The property had everything and more that you could think of. We were absolutely stoked with the Owl house. In fact we liked it so much we extended our stay for another two days. I will be recommending this place to all of my friends and family and will be booking it again the next time we come to Niseko.
