Outstanding hospitality
2 recent guests complimented Erica for outstanding hospitality.
Conveniently located in Rusutsu village, a 3 minute walk to the bus & 5 minute drive to some of the best powder in the world. Newly renovated and furnished. Fantastic for self catering families and small groups who want all the comfort of home.

The space
This house is located on the edge of the traditional village of Rusutsu and just a 5 minute local bus ride to the ski resort.
Completely renovated and furnished in 2015, we set this house up for our two families to have a 'snow home' in Japan.
There are 4 private bedrooms, an extra not-so-private room, 2 living rooms, a full kitchen, 2 bathrooms, storage shed and garden.
On the main floor you'll find a large entrance area where you can store boots, skis, snowboards.
Main Living Space - comfy sitting for for 10 people around a big dining table. There is a fire place with racks to dry your gear.
We set up the kitchen to cater to our big families, and you will have no trouble finding what you need to prepare a great meal. There are shops near by, and groceries are easy to grab.
There are two bedrooms on the main floor, each with a double bed.
There is a full bathroom on the main floor as well, with the toilet, sink and bath/shower all contained in separate rooms - making it easy to share among several people.
Upstairs there are two private bedrooms.
The bunk room has a double bed, a single bed, and our bunk beds which we have futons for. The kids love sleeping here. The room also functions as another lounge area.
There is a single bed tucked in an alcove in the hallway. Its warm and has a beautiful view.
There is a brand new, full bathroom upstairs, with traditional style Japanese bath and shower areas.
The upstairs family room is our 'kid zone'. We set it up with low seating and a traditional kotatsu table. This means, the coffee table has a built in heater underneath, and a fleecy blanket that slips under the table top to provide a skirt. Its the ultimate place to flop down and watch a movie with warm toes and hot chocolate.
There is also a traditional tatami room upstairs with 2 single beds.

Where you’ll be

Rusutsu-mura, Abuta-gun, Hokkaidō, Japan

Rusutsu is an incredible ski hill. Over 14 meters of annual powder and tons of terrain. It is the largest single resort in Hokkaido and sees far fewer tourists than Niseko which means less time waiting in lines and much more fresh powder.

Our house is located is the center of Rusutsu town very close to a SPAR convenience store and small local restaurant and large fresh produce market - 'Michinoeki 230 Rusutsu'
All are just a few minutes walk as well as the town post office and the local bus stop. The town bus runs once per hour during the ski season and delivers you to the ski hill in about five minutes for under $3 (2.5km away). You can also take the bus all the way to Kutchan to explore more shopping and dining options.

The lift tickets at Rusutsu resort are very affordable - usually under $50 USD.

Our house is a three minute walk to the local bus stop which takes you to the resort in under five minutes. The bus runs at 9am daily and again at noon and returns a few times through the afternoon and evening.

Winters in Bali, summer in Millarville, Alberta, Canada. Usually have spare rooms while in Bali and always have a pool. Very relaxed and always up for hanging out with new interesting people. Love discussing wild business ideas (especially ones that make the world a better place). Limited skills at either but always up for a game of tennis or a trip to some begginerish surf spots.
