Stayed for a week with family. Half our group skied; half did not (the older ones). Not often the case a property can cater to both groups. The skiers were ferried up to wherever they wanted to start on the mountain, and picked up as well when they finished skiing. The non skiers enjoyed the under 5 minute walk to the Vale/Shiki/Ezo/Lawsons etc as well as just staying home in the very cozy flat. Right across was Shiki which has Green Farm cafe for breakfast, a great deli plus gourmet restaurants Kamimura and Kitchen. The rooms were also really quiet- couldn't hear traffic, snow clearing or teenagers dressing up in snow gear! The property had a driver and car available to bring some us to the next towns (more food adventuring and food shopping) and any further restaurants we wanted to try (walking in the cold and snow was a bit much for some members of the group). One minor issue was that while the ski room was really convenient, the actual storage capacity of the ski lockers felt really cramped given the number in our party. Minor issue though, we'll definitely be back.

This was our second stay at Kozue and we were here for 6 nights from January 28 to February 3, 2017! Once again, we left Kozue in awe. From all the Nisade properties that I have stayed in the past 10 years, this winter 2016-2017 Kozue team is on a mission to outperform. Everything about the apartment is the same as our February 2016 stay from the abundance of luxury technology with excellent sound proofing to under-floor heating in living, bedroom and bathroom with direct elevator access. Prior to the trip, Andy Yu from Reservations made sure that my requests from previous years are replicated and he also coordinated with Housekeeping and Front Desk prior to arrival. I am truly grateful to Andy for his excellent memory and follow-up! What truly stands out this season is the Kozue concierge team this winter! From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by Cliff and lovely Anna. During our stay, Cliff went above and beyond with all our transfer requests. He is always a phone call away to drive us anywhere in Hirafu and also unlimited rides to Kutchan. He is very helpful, punctual, positive and made sure that there is always someone who will pick us up within 5 minutes after the transfer request was made. This is also the benefit for guests of Kozue, Terrazze, and Hakuchōzan who has access to a fleet of Nisade vans to take care of all your transfer needs. It was so convenient and especially during the snow storm that we encountered in late January! We were also very grateful that Cliff took the initiative to wait for us while we collected our snowboards from Rhythm and he also returned our snowboards at the end of our stay. Anna is very friendly and took the initiative to call us every morning to check on our transfer needs for the day. Sam is equally delightful driving us from one destination to another and he recommended us various cafes that were truly delightful. Thank you so much for making our stay heavenly! It’s the perfect haven in Niseko and we are so happy we are coming back to Kozue this winter 2017-2018!

This was our first visit to Niseko and Kozue made it an experience to remember. Prior to our arrival to departing niseko, everything was organised and we were well taken care off. Cliff was so helpful in every aspect from taking us (and our skis) right to the lift and picking us from any location throughout the day. When it was out of hours, we could call upon the Vale to handle our transportation. Anna and Sam also stood out as they were so helpful and friendly. They help organise ski lessons, restaurant bookings, airport transfers and lift passes. One small minor negative was that there was no safe in the room but we were allowed to keep valuables with the reception. All in all, it was a fantastic stay (made by the team) and we would definitely be back!

We stayed here not knowing what to expect but I couldn't have been more happier with how everything went. Our apartment was very cozy with a fireplace and comfortable living area. The staff was amazing! Cliff the concierge made sure we had a ride everywhere we went. They even carried our equipment to the lifts! Sam helped us out as well driving all the way Hanazono even for just one run then returning our equipment for us afterwards. Anna was also very helpful and sweet. We have come to niseko once a year for the past three years and this was by far my favorite place so far. Will definitely be back

We have been spending winter in various properties in Niseko for the past 10 years and we have a strong preference for apartments located only in Upper Hirafu. Hence, it’s been difficult to outperform Suiboku and Vale (where we have been staying for the past few years) whose level of luxury and location has been unmatched. Initially, my husband and I were concerned about Kozue’s distance to the restaurants and ski lifts (Kozue is located in Middle Hirafu). However, we left Kozue in awe. This property exceeded our expectations and outperformed! Apartment: The living room is modern, spacious with pristine birch trees views. There is an abundance of luxury technology with excellent sound proofing, under-floor heating in living, bedroom and bathroom and direct elevator access. The abundance of hot water supply at Kozue is something we are extremely happy about too. Concierge & Guest Services: I have to say that Nisade truly triumph in their human capital. From the moment we walked in to when we left, the dedicated concierge & guest services team went above and beyond. I had the chance to speak to almost everyone on the team and was really impressed with each and every member of the Nisade’s team I have interacted with. Prior to the trip, Andy, Peiying, Hien and Karyn from Guest Services and Kozue’s Front Desk made sure that everything is in order. Upon arrival, we were greeted by lovely Kathleen. During our stay, we have access to our Kozue’s concierge cellphone and we are incredibly grateful to Dan who is always a phone call away to drive us from one destination to another (Note: Unlimited rides everywhere including Kutchan). Dan is also very pleasant, positive, and very punctual with all our last minute transfer requests and gave us some great tips on dining and shopping too! In the event that he is unable to arrange the transfer himself, he made sure that Conor from Terrazze or another concierge from the Vale will complete the transfer in a timely manner. They are all equally friendly and efficient! It is also worth noting that Jeremy & Dan recommended some low-key authentic local restaurants that was so good that we made it part of return visit dining list! Clearly, Nisade sets very high expectations here. Their ability to employ a diverse group of young, passionate employees from various countries coupled with their thorough training truly sets them apart in Niseko! Thank you so much, Kozue! It was an amazing Chinese New Year holiday for us!

It was a delight to stay in this new apartment. For two people it is spacious, modern, well equipped and most comfortable. Staff were friendly, efficient, professional and very helpful. Concierge Jeremy was usually on hand to chauffeur us through the snow to nearby places, and provided excellent suggestions for eating places. Karyn, Jeremy and the rest of the Kozue team provided outstanding service for a most comfortable stay in snow country.
