What Past Guests Are Saying
We stayed here last year with a couple of friends and it is truely a wonderful property. The owners have spent time fitting it out with all the mod cons and cozy funishings that any snow bunny would love and want. It is warm and cozy and a great place to entertaine friends if you have a group of you up there.
The bedrooms and bathrooms and all perfect. The location is so close to the bus stop and the onsen is fantastic.
The staff that Manager the property are outstanding and certainly treat everyone like Vip's, it adds that extra touch of class to an already outstanding property.
I will most certainly be back soon :-)
Outstandingly presented ski accommodation
We stayed at Gouka Lodge 'Bondi' early in 2011, it was brilliant. The house is so comfortably set out. It is located about 50m flat walk (which is very important in the slippery snow somedays) to the free bus shuttle stop that takes you right to the gondola to start your days skiing. At the end of the day the town's Onsen (natural hot springs) is an easy 100m walk down the street.
The house has beds for 8 and 3 bathrooms so there is never any need to be waiting too long. There are all the comforts of home here and more, internet, gas fireplace, a fully appointed kitchen any chef would love to cook in, cozy lounge, and the heated room that separates the front door from the inside ensures you stay nice and warm inside as people come and go.
The staff that look after you treat you like Vip's. We would love to get back up here one day. It would really suit two families easily.
Beautiful and comfortable
I stayed at Gouka lodge last year and loved it. It is homely and comfortable whils being excellently presented. The layout of the lodge is perfect for a ski holiday. The position is great in the lower village with great access to shuttle buses to get around the villiage, very close to the an Onsen and great acess to all the bars. Throughly enjoyed my stay there and would stay again.
Beautiful home in a fabulous location
I was lucky enough to stay at Gouka Lodge in 2011 and I really enjoyed my stay.
The location is great in the lower village away from the crowds but very close to the local free shuttle. A short walk to the onsen, Yukiro.
The house was quite spacious and was equipped with everything you needed. As a keen cook I enjoyed the set up of the kitchen, which had everything you needed.
GemĂĽtliche Lodge zum WohlfĂĽhlen
Gauka Lodge liegt im unteren Teil von Hirafu etwas abseits der Massen. Hier ist der japanische Flair. Zum Onsen sind es nur 2min zu FuĂź. Genauso sind viele kleine japanische Restaurants und Kneipen zu FuĂź erreichbar. Die Lodge ist super eingerichtet. Es hat reichlich Platz. Service und Betreuung vor Ort waren sehr gut.
Response from Peter Philip - 09/21/2012
Thank you Christian and we look forward to welcoming you back to Gouka Lodge soon.
For our English speaking customers, the following is a translation of Christian's review:
Gouka Lodge is located in the lower part of Hirafu, away from the crowds. Here is the Japanese flair. The Onsen is just 2 min walk and many small Japanese restaurants and pubs are within walking distance. The lodge is superbly furnished. It has plenty of space. Service and support on site were very good.
