Birchwood - Chalet interior

About The Chalet

Birchwood - The entrance

Named for the grove of birch trees it overlooks, this stylish mountain chalet blends the best of both worlds - a serene, back-to-nature setting; with all the facilities of Niseko Village Ski Resort – often referred to as the Aspen of Japan – just minutes away.

With its sleek black façade and contemporary cubist design, Birchwood is the epitome of modern Japanese architectural design. Minimalist interiors provide a sophisticated yet supremely relaxing living space, with three spacious bedrooms, which comfortably sleep six. The open-plan living area is the heart and soul of Birchwood, with expansive picture windows framing views of Mount Yotei and the beautiful forest that skirts the property. Whether travelling with friends or family, this warm and cosy communal space is ideal for sharing a hearty meal around the dining table, or sinking into a sofa and putting your feet up after a memorable day outdoors.

An immaculate modern kitchen is equipped with everything you need to cook up a feast, and our partner Niseko Gourmet can help with provisioning, meal deliveries and bespoke private dining experiences. With so many great dining options close by, you may be tempted to eat out. Niseko Village and Hirafu Village are justly famed for their variety of dining options, après ski scene and cosmopolitan vibe.

Niseko is indeed a snowy Shangri-la, but once the snow melts, Birchwood’s surrounding countryside blazes with colour and the mountain trails open for hiking and biking. Enjoy the sunshine and glorious views, as you play a round of golf at the award-winning Niseko Village Golf Club, or treat the family to a fun day at Pure – a nature activity centre with the longest zip line in Japan.

No matter the season, Birchwood is an inspired choice for those wishing to enjoy a luxury chalet in a natural setting, away from the hustle and bustle.

    One of the best Airbnbs we have stayed at. The house is beautiful, spacious, clean and modern. Easy checkin/entry, the house was professionally cleaned every other day, the kitchen was stocked with almost everything you needed and the Elite Havens management team was super responsive, plus we loved that they provided a complimentary shuttle to and from town. The house was perfectly located for us as we snowboarded/skied at Niseko and Rusutsu. It’s also just a 5 minute drive to the center of Hirafu, so extremely convenient and great if you do want to stay in a more peaceful environment, yet close to the center. This place was perfect.

    Thank you so much for sending us here as well as arranging the logistics Rochil. Very helpful!! @Elite Havens Niseko @Rochi! We had an amazing stay at Andrew’s house. Much better than we expected in the following aspects: 1. Elite Haven's Rochil helped us with pre-arrival logistics and helped us book all tickets, rentals as well as commute tickets. Super responsive 2. Shuttle between Birchwood and resorts - this is so much more convenient than renting your own car and driving yourself for a 6-person group. They always arrive on time and pick us up at most of the spots between 8am-6pm. They even had exceptions for us post 6pm when we had trouble booking taxis. Very sweet and friendly ground team. 3. The house is super NEW with good quality facilities. It was really stylish as well as AMAZING view!!! They have almost everything from dish washer, coffee machine, laundry etc 4. House keeping everyday - this is the first airbnb place I have ever stayed that offers house keeping everyday which makes the place clean and tidy. In all, we had a good stay and will definitely recommend others to stay here. It made my first Niseko trip wonderful.

    Great house with Amazing french windows in the living room and the dining room - facing the outside view. It also has the coziest kitchen. It's surrounded by wood and snow - which contribute to a beautiful snowy landscape. The most important thing is everyone in Elite Havens is quite cheerful and charming. We had a memorable time in Birchwood.

    It is our greatest pleasure to be the first guest. The house is so lovely with a great view - both mountains and forest view (though no leaves). We spent great nights in living room - the floor is warm and Apple TV brought us fun and enjoyment. All the facilities are new and high quality. Enjoyed everything in the house - Andrew's welcome also appreciated. Shall visit again.
