Snowman Apartments

A Madarao lifestyle investment

The dream child of Dan and Andy of Snowball Chalet...

Snowman Apartments is a boutique new development at Madarao Mountain Resort and is a perfect lifestyle investment if you are looking to own ski property in Japan.

An easy 2-hour trip from Tokyo, Snowman Apartments sets the standard for luxury accommodation. Dan and Andy have followed the same core philosophy of Snowball Chalet. What would we like to live in? The answer is simple...

It should have a Japanese aesthetic and western comfort. It needs a designer fireplace, perfect lighting, a bath on the deck, views of the mountains, crazy comfy beds, cozy couches, quality fixtures and fittings and Japanese features and fascinations everywhere. It should be warm and welcoming with all the practical things that make for a perfect ski holiday... fully-featured kitchen, washing and drying machine, dishwasher, heater, firewood stacked to the ceiling, quality bathroom products, blisteringly fast internet and a record player and incredible record collection with rich tones from speakers that are 30 years old (because they don't make 'em like they used to).

We can't wait to move in and welcome our new neighbours. Will it be you?

A new development in the heart of the Japanese Alps

The countdown to construction...

With designs complete, the builders on board and the timeline down pat, we are so pleased construction has started. The first stage will be completed in October and will be ready for the first guests in the winter season 2022/23

There are just 4 apartments left for sale and with a growing list of interest for the remaining apartments, you should get in touch if this unique investment opportunity appeals.

With excellent returns and a set and forget investment the only decision that really matters is what dates will you have your own holiday in Snowman Apartments?
