“A memorable and superp stay in Furano”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2013

We booked the apartment on a special rate during the ski season and were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Close proximity to the kitanomine ski zone (10 min) and a short and cheap taxi into town makes this apartment very handy yet feels very secluded. The apartment only being 2 years old is in fantastic condition and is equipped with everything you could need. The 2 bedrooms are very large and the living space upstairs is very comfortable after a day on the slopes. We were pleasantly surprised by the apartment but our trip got even better thanks to the unconditional assistance and hospitality of the manager. He made us feel welcome and was willing to help us in any way possible. It truely made our stay an enjoyable experience. The only problem, not staying long enough!!! We hope to return in the near future as this resort is still yet to experience the aussie invasion like Niseko.

We spent a white Christmas in Furano - Fantastic. We received almost a daily dump of powder snow. Forest View is a short walk to the ski slopes; about 10 minutes by taxi ride (approx. 1200-1300 yen one-way) to central area (big supermarkets & JR Furano) - by foot it is approx. 30-40 minutes. Numerous cafes, restaurants like Chupka, Furano Delice, Kitchen Cafe & Pizza; as well as a 7/11 all within a 15 minute walk.
The apartments downstairs have 2 x large bedrooms, shower & bath, separate toilet; and upstairs is large living space with lounge, dining table as well as a kitchen (cook-top, microwave, bench-top grill - no oven, fridge,) - all you would need to cook and serve most meals; bring or buy your own food to stock the fridge. There is also a washer & dryer (in kitchen area) so you can have your clothes cleaned and dry before you head from your holidays.
Service by English speaking staff excellent (nearby at All About Furano Office - Petit Hotel Suzuran).

We were initially hesitant when we booked this as we have never stayed in an apartment in the many years of travelling due to high potential downside. But everyone was glad with the decision at the end of the trip. Here's why we loved it :

This apartment is extremely new and well-maintained and it is as good as the pictures suggest. We found out that this was built by a Australian family which explains the minimalistic Down Under vibes. The house owners are definitely very house proud owners as the place is even better equipped than my own home and the quality of utensils/cookware/equipment confirms that they chose items as if it were for their own stay.

Location is also great as it is within walking distance from the furano tourism office.

There are only 2watchouts : 1) there is only air conditioning in the second floor where the living/dining/kitchen is. Consequent to that we had to sleep with the windows open in the bedroom which will be disastrous for hotter summer days. So at least a ceiling fan would have been good. 2) there is only 1toilet and 1bathroom. So there is a need to queue to shower.

But despite these two watchouts, we will still choose to stay at Forest View again if we were to visit Furano.
