Set over three floors and with approximately 400 square metres to play with, Zekkei is utterly spectacular. And, secluded as it is right down the bottom of Hirafu village, the privacy it affords - not to mention the unobstructed views of Mount Yotei - encourage it's aura of exclusivity. Very few other properties in Niseko come close.  

The interior is absolutely stunning, featuring vaulted ceilings and vast picture windows overlooking the snow-covered, rice terraced valley and Mt Yotei beyond. The open living/dining area is characterised by the traditional use of Canadian wooden beams blended with modern and sleek interior furnishings with heated timber floor. The oversized handmade Siberian elm wood dining table, white marble fire place and huge lounges are perfectly set up for entertaining. From early morning, the sun streams into the spacious interior, flooding this fabulous chalet with warmth and light. It is also Niseko´s first private home to be fully heated by environmentally conscious geothermal heating and there are also three Japanese Hinoki bathtubs for your own private onsen experience.

This house comes with complimentary use of rental 4WD van - a valid driving license from your home country is required.

In a privilaged position at the very bottom of Lower Hifaru village. From here the slope drops away, affording those spectacular views. To walk up to the centre of the main village would take five minutes, but you do pass several restaurants and bars en route. To walk to the shuttle bus stop is just two minutes, but do remember that you have your own 4WD vehicle which comes with the property.

An indicative per night cost for five bedroom Zekkei during the lowest season would be circa ¥162,000 (£940), rising to circa ¥375,000 (£2,175) per night during the peak periods. A complimentary 4WD vehicle is included for rentals until the end of March.
