Car: Recommended

The house is located near the corner of Baseline and Stapley/Cooper Road, with quick and easy access to highway 60, which allows easy access to all parts of town (highway 60 intersects with highway 10 and highway 101, and both of those allow easy access to highway 202). Guests have especially appreciated the location.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I'm a Snowbird Wannabee from Southeast Alaska!

Why the Owner Chose Gilbert:
I love the sun but I live and work in gorgeous, but rainy, Southeast Alaska. The vacation home is a great place for me to relax and get great sun. Also, there is great shopping close by, some within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I have a busy lifestyle, and look forward to downtime in a relaxing setting. I love to relax in the sun by the pool with a good book, and I enjoy shopping and eating in good restaurants. The house is located closest to highway 60, but also close to the 101 and the 202. I have all I need here at my vacation home!
