Gustav’s Hideaway is huge three-storey property designed for two-families to holiday in at the same time. It packs a lot in between its four walls, ensuring this really is somewhere you can get away from it all. Along with 4 bedrooms it comes with a media room, big deck off the living area, outdoor jacuzzi, and even a small quiet office space. This secluded stay includes lots of entertainment room and ensures your group has fun on and off the slopes.

A garage car port ensures that dedicated powder fiends can park with no issue (parking can be a huge problem with metres of snow falling!) and drive out to chase the best snow each day. Lower Hirafu is full of hidden treasures – little izakayas, tasty restaurant retreats and even a club or two to keep you entertained without needing to hit the main streets up above.

Sleeps: 12 guests (12 max)

The custom furniture and décor of the house is unique in Niseko, playing with a range of bright colours across the property and some very funky furnishings. I suppose you could say it’s a fun luxury as opposed to the standard luxury of much of the rest of Niseko’s upmarket properties (not that there’s anything wrong with that!) If you’re with a group of friends, you’re guaranteed to get some great social media snaps in this one!

The living and dining room on the top floor cleverly segregates the different areas of the room, while retaining a sociable open plan format. The kitchen comes with everything needed to cook a meal to rival local restaurants (theoretically). The dining table seats 12, while the lounge suites around the TV can seat another half a dozen bodies.

Gustav’s Hideaway has four bedrooms and sleeps up to 12 people. There are three bedrooms with twin or double bed configurations, and one bunk room sleeping six people in three generously sized bunks. The chalet has four bathrooms, one of them en suite to the master bedroom. You’ll love the different colours and materials used in each bathroom – especially the forest wallpaper themed bathroom on the top floor!

Electronic entertainment is well catered for with free wifi interenet, a large flat screen TV in the main living area and media room, with satellite channels, Apple TV and a DVD library.

The property comes with a large ski storage and drying room, as well as laundry with washer and dryer. There is parking for two cars.

Gustav’s Hideaway


Gustav’s Hideaway is located in the quiet lower end of Lower Hirafu Village. While it may not have centre-of-town convenience, that’s not really what you want in a hideaway is it? Instead of the high-rise jungle of Upper Hirafu, enjoy looking at the gorgeously designed pensions, log cabins and standalone houses in your neighbourhood.

With its location at the bottom of Hirafu, it’s one of the closest properties in Niseko to Mt Yotei, giving it window-frame filling views of Mt Fuji’s little brother. But Gustav’s Hideaway isn’t a one-trick pony on the view front – from the other side of the property you have views up the ski mountain, which are beautifully lit up at night. Awesome.


It’s probably a 15-minute walk to the closest lift, although the stop for the free shuttle bus is just en easy five-minute walk away. This bus can take you to any lift, ski school, gear hire shop, restaurant or bar in the village up until 9pm.
With a covered car port at your disposal it may be worth investing in a rental for your stay – that way you can pick and choose between ski slopes based on the day’s conditions, or take the kids out to one of many exciting local destinations a short drive (but a long bus ride) away.


Having said that, there is still quite a lot going on in the lower village. Find one of the oldest traditional open-air onsens less than 10 minutes’ walk away. Izakayas and bars abound if you know where to look, and the nearest cafe inside the Haven building is closer than the main street. Stock up on groceries on your first day and apart from skiing you almost needn’t leave Gustav’s Hideaway at all!

    Fantastic chalet in Niseko. It’s perfect for large groups looking for somewhere quiet in Hirafu.
