HARMONY INDEED!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 (6 adults & 2 kids) stayed for 5 nights in Oct 2017. Despite being off season for this famous ski town, the fall foliage was glorious…a nature lover’s paradise! Since the house comes with the use of a van, it was easy driving around to enjoy the sights ($5 international driver’s license). The famous "Milk Kobo" is a short 5 min walk from the house and is a complex of quaint shops and restaurants. You must enjoy the famous Hokkaido ice cream and the most delicious cheese tarts, fresh from the oven! There is even a small veggie farmer's market and since the house has a FAB kitchen, you can enjoy the wonderful produce, something that’s difficult to do in a hotel room.

This SPOTLESSLY CLEAN house is well laid out with 3 SPACIOUS bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The upstairs bedroom is the largest, so my brother and his family of 4 slept there, with 2 futon mattresses on the floor, next to the bed. Coming from Hawaii, we especially enjoyed the wood burning stove! There is even a fancy wine cooler so you can stock up on wine and sake for your stay! Fujimi is an excellent cook and you can arrange for her to prepare a meal for you. She prepared sashimi platters, sushi, a meat/potato dish, grilled fish and a mushroom hotpot. It was an incredible amount of food so come hungry! The house is managed by Fujimi and Tom, who live in the house on the adjacent lot and they are happy to make recommendations and assist you with reservations AND they speak English!!!

One last thing regarding transportation to/from Niseko. During peak winter seasons, transport companies provide New Chitose Airport (CTS) and Sapporo bus options. These are NOT local buses, but instead, are tour buses specifically for skiier/snowboarders traveling with luggage and gear. Since we visited during an off peak season, I hired a private JUMBO van through GO HOKKAIDO tour, which is tour company designed for English speaking guests, so emails were fast and efficient. The van was perfect for our family of 8, even with large suitcases. Without luggage, the vehicle would sit 9 passengers + driver. On our day of checkout, we hired the same van for a 6 hour sightseeing charter before delivering us to the CTS airport, where I recommend you allow an extra 1-2 hour there because the shopping and dining options are incredible! All in all, the HARMONY HOUSE was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend staying there. Mahalo Tom & Fujimi-san!!!

loved the house. loved the service even more.

  • 5 of 5

The Harmony House is a fantastic find. It was very roomy for two couples and could have easily fit 3 couples. The house is immaculate and the service (provided by Fujimi and Tom) is unmatched. Be sure to order at least one meal from Fujimi. She prepared one of the best meals we had in Japan. The house itself is a few minutes away from Annupuri and Niseko Village,, and it's so convenient to drive to using the van that comes with the house rental. Resutsu is a nice drive and about 35 minutes away. We can't wait to return to the Harmony House.

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

With all the great reviews, this house exceeded our high expectations! Cameras can't quite capture the quality of the house and the amazing view from the house. It was super clean and extremely well-equipped. The van provided was a blessing, making all our destinations only minutes away. Fujimi and Tom were such thoughtful and caring hosts. I highly recommend the scrumptious meals prepared by Fujimi, as well as Tom's wine collection which was excellent. Staying at Harmony House was most definitely the highlight of our trip to Niseko!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Harmony house was everything as advertised! Comfy and clean. With all the amenities you need. Fujimi and Tom are very helpful and responsive. They only live few hundred feet away, so they can respond to your needs quickly. Highly recommend! Tip, go for Fujimi's set dinner cooked right in the house, our best meal during our trip!

ELEGANT HOME AMONGST THE TREES

  • 5 of 5

An elegant home amongst the trees that lives up to its promise of being a forest haven yet so close to everything. This new house is very well appointed, comfortable and impeccably maintained. Enjoyed the ambience of the fireplace, the well equipped kitchen with walk in pantry and the spacious bedrooms with plush carpets and comfortable beds. Ski lifts are only 5 minutes away by car (available as part of the rental agreement) and several excellent restaurants. The hosts are friendly, informative and polite. Would definitely recommend this home as one of the best places to stay in the area.
