Baw Baw Sansou is a well-designed modern chalet just 50m from Hirafu Ground Zero – ie the traffic lights in the centre of the village. While it’s in the centre of all the action, you’ll be surprised to walk through the building to find it backs onto forest land, making it feel like a peaceful, private sanctuary. With timber exterior and stylish modern design, it even LOOKS good from the outside when you come home for the day.
Built in 2008 by Hokkaido Tracks, one of Niseko’s premier modern developers, it’s been cleverly designed for Niseko ski resort holidays. From the front door “genkan” entrance where you leave your boots through to the bedrooms, there’s plenty of space for storage and places to hang your jackets and scarves, leaving plenty of space inside for you to feel relaxed and uncluttered.
Complete with contemporary modern furnishings, the open-plan living and dining areas soak up natural light from the large windows, creating an excellent atmosphere to unwind and relax with friends or family at the end of a day in the snow. The kitchen is full equipped with European appliances including dishwasher, making preparing food and cleaning up a breeze (if you ever need to in this culinary hotspot!).
This is a private townhouse, and can comfortably accommodate up to 8 people.
Baw Baw Sansou sleeps up to eight people in its 3 bedrooms. Each bedroom can be configured with either a queen bed or twin singles, and one bedroom also has a bunk bed.
There are two bathrooms – one on the ground floor living level, and one upstairs alongside the bedroom.
The house comes with wireless internet, satellite TV and a DVD player. There’s a ski locker at the door that doubles as a drying room and laundry with washer and dryer. There is a car parking space for one car.
Surf & Other Activities
Baw Baw Sansou is located in the perfect location. While you often hear that term thrown around, here it’s actually a very accurate description! As mentioned previously, it’s just 50m down from the very centre of town. Here there is a choice of a dozen restaurants and cafes; the famous Seicomart convenience store where you can get fresh food, snacks, alcohol and a whole lot more; as well as the activity bookings centre Explore Niseko.
And most important of all – the ski lifts. Just 100m from the traffic lights is the family lift. Beginners can spend their day here, and more advanced skiers and snowboarders can jump on the lift to get further up the hill. If you want to get first tracks up high though, you’re either going to need to walk about 500m uphill, or jump on the free shuttle bus. Ok, so maybe it’s not the PERFECT location, but for the quality and value of the accommodation and a free ride to the lifts, it’s pretty damn close!
