Gouka is a stylish four-bedroom chalet centrally located in Hirafu's middle village. With large windows and warm wooden flooring, it is an inviting space that offers to cocoon you within its embrace. Particularly well suited for families traveling together, the chalet has two generous master bedrooms and two guest bedrooms. A cosy lounge kept warm by a gas and stone fireplace, extends into the dining area seating eight and a large open-plan kitchen, making it a great meeting place after the day's adventures.

With daily housekeeping services from Monday to Saturday, you can sit back and relax. Cook up a storm in the kitchen or head out to one of Hirafu's many bars and restaurants nearby, dining options are aplenty. The chalet's enviable central location makes it easy to wander about but if you prefer, an on-call driver is at your service.

    The Elite Havens group that runs this property does a spectacular job. They will give you rides anywhere in Hirafu during business hours, and make sure you get in and out of town with ease. Daniel was especially great! The staff in general were very accommodating and helpful. I would stay here again.

    Great space for a group - warm and spacious. Elite Havens concierge and shuttle service at Niseko was a wonderful bonus when booking this house. Not too far from the restaurants. Also some great spots a couple blocks away.

    Gouka cottage is a fantastic place for a large group of people! Elite Havens transportation service was absolutely amazing giving you pick up and drop off options to the local hills. They also helped with rentals and provided plenty of information on the area. Plenty of breakfast things were provided to get us going and ready for the slopes.
