Gakuto Villas Twin Bedroom with Sofa | Hakuba Valley

The Gakuto Villas is a small estate of twelve brand new wooden, two storey lodges, nestled in a small cul-de-sac amongst Hakuba Valley’s pristine woodland. Everything is nearby – rentals, restaurants, a shuttle stop to get you to local resorts, or Happo Ski Resort is a short five-minute walk away.

Wood finishes and simple, chic styling is present throughout each chalet. There are modern and stylish furnishings and airy spaces, each chalet is made light and airy by the steepled ceilings and skylights. Ample windows on each floor look out over the surrounding forests and help to bring nature indoors.

There is ski storage in the entrance way, a dedicated washer and dryer in the unit, a bedroom and a bathroom on each floor sleeping four adults as a basic setup. Two extra guests can stay for an extra charge: one fold-out bed can be placed in the upstairs second bedroom, while a second guest can sleep on the sofa bed in the living room.

Each Gakuto Villa has a kitchenette with a three-quarter sized fridge, microwave, a full host of appliances and utensils to help you cook during your stay. A uniquely styled wooden dining table seats up to four, while the sofa seats two more comfortably.

There is free high-speed WiFi throughout each lodge. The living room features a flat-screen TV with cable and satellite channels and a DVD player.

There is a parking lot with room for one car per lodge. While lodge hosts are not on-site during your stay, you can reach them with a quick phone call – they pick you up at the station, help you get to groceries, recommend restaurants and help with anything else you need.

    Very happy with our stay at Gakuto Villas, very modern accommodation with great facilities and very close to the slopes and restaurants. Staff at Gakuto were lovely and very helpful too. I really recommend this place and will happily visit again.

    My first visit to Hakuba. Stayed for 6nights in mid-Feb. Great location, nestled in nature and quiet. Was about less than 5mins ride from Hakuba main station to the villa. Villa is modern, clean, cozy with beautiful view into the surrounding forest and spacious enough to fit 4-6 adults easily. Washer/dryer was available.

    Easy access to ski slopes via free shuttle bus or short walk to nearest ski lift. Bus stop is just few steps away from the guest house.

    Staffs were incredibly friendly and accommodating, special thanks for helping me to find and arrange for ski lesson even when it came last minute!

    There are some nice restaurants nearby (recommended by staff) and would advise to book in advance. Cooking was another option as kitchen was equipped to cook simple meals. Gakuto provides free shuttle to the grocery store.

    Overall was an enjoyable and pleasant stay. One small housekeeping improvement that I can suggest was replenishing coffee capsules in the villa as there aren’t many cafes nearby to get coffee in the morning.

    Would definitely return. Highly recommend.
