“Return visit says it all :)”
We came back for a second year in a row to stay at The Orchards. This time we had a split stay in Shimai and Kitsune. Both properties were awesome. Excellent amenities that work perfectly, nice furnishings and a well-heated house. The icing on the cake is the on-demand shuttle. Can't wait to go back a third time!
"The best in Niseko"
I hesitated writing this review because I don want too many people swamping the place:))). Really nice and well maintained chalets. We looked forward to returning home from skiing everyday. Perfect for groups who drive and are independent.
"The Orchards is ACE!"
We are a family of 6. We stayed at Matsu. What an amazing home for us to stay whilst on a wonderful winter holiday in Niseko. The rooms, the warmth the amenities are amazing within the home. From the heated floors to comfy beds to games for the kids and even a nespresso machine. Having the shuttle to take you to the slopes or dinner is brilliant.the only comment would be that the shuttle drivers are varied in the service and engagement. Some chat and assist with the gear which is great. Others are removed. Minor point. Overall a GREAT stay.
"Wonderful accommodation but better service!!!"
My Wife and five children stayed In the Hinoki. First, about the place. Very neat and clean and neatly furnished. House had enough utensils for cooking and well organised... The real benefit of the orchards, however, was the staff. From reservations to leaving they were terrific. The reservations staff was Super helpful and answered all my questions. They also were very helpful getting ski/snowboard rentals, lift tickets, and everything lined out for us prior to arrival. The staff was all Super helpful and professional while we were there. They were very accommodating to make sure we enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone. The shuttle to the lifts and downtown were Super wonderful. Definite recommend!!!!!!!
"Great apartment in Niseko"
Great location for skiing, transport and restaurants. The team at Akazora were really helpful and organized passes, equipment bookings, transfers, babysitting, grocery deliveries and great ideas on restaurants. Very welcoming place. Good internet.
