Old Man Creek is a pair of stylish duplex chalet apartments in a quiet corner of Hirafu Village – beside a babbling creek – enjoying clear views of both the ski mountain and Mt Yotei. There aren’t many places that do this well, and in such style and spacious comfort. Watching thick powder snow fall outside with the ski hill lit up for night skiing in the distance, while you’re warm, skied out and full from dining on Japanese cuisine, is a feeling you won’t forget.

Western appliances in the kitchens and the latest entertainment options including satellite TV, wifi internet and private lounge will keep you entertained in Western comfort.

Both Old Man Creek apartments have five bedrooms, one sleeping 10, the other 12. One bedroom is on the ground floor, two are on the middle floor, and two master bedrooms share the top floor – one with ski hill views, one facing Mt Yotei.Both master bedrooms on the top floor have ensuites, while the two bedrooms on the middle floor share a large bathroom with Japanese ofuro bath. The bedroom downstairs also has an ensuite and is alongside the private lounge.

The kitchen, dining and living area is a spacious, high-ceiling open plan space, an excellent space for lounging around and enjoying finger foods or light snacks before venturing out for dinner. The views here are literally second to none. Not many places enjoy such clear views of both of Niseko’s major mountains – the ski hill Mt Annupuri, and the wild, snow-covered volcano Mt Yotei.

Old Man Creek
Location

SETTING / ATMOSPHERE

Old Man Creek is located in Izumikyo 1, a quiet enclave of generally big old and new chalets, all surrounded by mountains of deep powder snow. Old Man Creek is right on the edge of the village, meaning it enjoys unobstructed views towards the ski mountain.

LIFTS / TRANSPORT

The lifts are a long walk – probably 20 minutes, or just two or three minutes by 4WD, which comes supplied with this property. If you need to catch the free shuttle bus, it’s about three minutes walk down the road.

RESTAURANTS / BARS

There are two or three little cafes and restaurants in Izumikyo 1, five or six down the road in Izumikyo 2, and 10 minutes walk up the road, or two minutes by car or taxi into Hirafu Village and you’ve have your choice of dozens of the best restaurants you will ever have eaten at.
