Hokkaido, known for its gorgeous alpine weather, relatively close geographical distance, and copious amounts of powder snow thatâ€™s perfect for winter sports has drawn many visitors from around the world.
In fact, so popular is the area with visitors that various communities and luxury properties have sprung up in recent years, catering to those looking for holiday homes â€“ a base to truly call their own and hit the slopes from. Enter Odin Properties, a design-focused developer that recently launched Odin Hills, a 16-hectare â€œprivate residential luxury villageâ€â€˜ in Hanazono, Niseko.
Owning a piece of property in Odin Hills puts you in an exclusive enclave, complete with a master plan that includes unrestricted views of Mount Yotei and protected forest lands; as well as a nearby onsen and clubhouse with modern amenities and services.
Currently, the Odin Hills showroom has just opened, where interested parties can peruse the master plan and view the residential properties â€“Â a proposed cluster of timber-clad chalets featuring clean Scandanavian design and sustainable technologies. In line with modern, mindful living, the village will also be replete with bike trials, yoga outposts, and various forms of eco-friendly transport for residences.
Buyers and investors will also automatically become members of the Odin Hills Owners Club (OHOC) â€“ where personalised service gets taken to the next level far beyond simply owning a holiday home. Membership means much of the administrative burdens that come with owning a house will be taken care of. OHOC will take care of building management and maintenance, from snow clearance to taxes so you can turn up for your ski holiday worry-free.
In town? The club provides a dedicated concierge service where a dedicated team will arrange for transport, ski passes, and even dining recommendations with bookings.
For those looking to rent out their property, OHOC also provides rental management and marketing servicesÂ â€“ so all youâ€™ve got to do is to put in the investment.
