Glasshouse stands in a league of it’s own. A 5 bedroom split-level home that comfortably sleeps 12, it is perfect for large families or groups of friends. Set way down in lower Hirafu, it is far enough from the hustle and bustle of the main village, yet still conveniently located.
Not coincidentally named, Glasshouse offers amazing, uninterrupted views of Mount Yotei from the comfort of the lounge room through its floor-to-ceiling windows. Featuring all the little luxuries you need, there is even a concierge on hand to transport you to and from the slopes or your favourite restaurant.
The secluded location offers ultimate privacy for relaxing in the outdoor Jacuzzi or lounging in front of the lounge’s open fireplace. Featuring all the little luxuries you need, you can even arrange to have someone cook up the ultimate Japanese feast all in the comfort of your own holiday house.
