Fractionally owned luxury ski accommodation is now available in Niseko with the launch of Chalet Kitsune, which is managed by Taiga Real Estate & Project Management.
"Leading European ski resorts such as Verbier, St Anton, Zermatt and St Moritz offer fractionally owned private ski chalet accommodation with relaxed but sophisticated luxury, supported by live-in staff to attend to all guests requirements including cooking, cleaning and driving them to and from the ski slopes, bars and restaurants," says Keith Rodgers, President of Taiga Real Estate & Project Management.
"Although many people dream of owning a Niseko ski vacation property, most don't t use a ski vacation home often enough to justify the large expense and management issues of owning a luxury ski chalet.
"Fractional ownership provides the solution - by allowing 4-6 owners to own a legal share in the same property, enjoy an annual Niseko ski vacation in their own fully managed luxury ski chalet with a large group of family and friends, and pay only a fraction of the purchase costs and ongoing expenses.
"This means each owner gets exclusive use of the property for up to two weeks from December to February each winter. This is ideal as most people have work and school commitments that prevent them from using a ski vacation home for more than a couple of weeks each year," he says.
"Now is a great time to invest in Japan property with the yen exchange rate at levels not seen since 2008 and signs of growth starting to emerge in the Niseko property market," Rodgers says.
Kitsune is designed to be a chalet, a luxury boutique hotel, and a private residence all at once - mixing Swiss 'cabane' charm with Asian design.
It is the first fractional ownership offering of an exclusive private ski chalet in Niseko. It will provide each owner with 1/5th direct ownership share in the property and exclusive access for 8-10 nights each winter with room for up to 22 honoured guests.
The syndicate of owners will enjoy all the amenities they would expect from a fine hotel in the relaxed and intimate atmosphere of a fully managed, exclusive private chalet in an expansive 5380ft2/500m2 dwelling supported by two live- in staff providing VIP service for guests.The first step to own an affordable part of the Niseko luxury lifestyle is to visit www.chaletkitsune.com for more information or call Keith Rodgers on +81 (0)136 55 8022
