"We have rented many holiday homes over the years, all over the world (in the United States, Europe, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom and many more) and this holiday rental is without a doubt THE BEST rental we have ever experienced!
The chalet itself is just brilliant, it has a real cosy feel to it (but it’s plenty big enough) and it has all the mod cons you would expect (great wifi, cable TV, a really well equipped kitchen with a fantastic new oven, a big dishwasher, huge shower and huge bathtub with plentiful hot water and the added bonus of your own laundry room with a big washing machine and dryer) but it feels more like a ‘home away from home’ instead of the usual sterile, sometimes bare rental apartments you often get.
The furnishings are both modern, super comfy and very user friendly plus the design is great! The beds are the most comfortable we have ever slept in (they have those wonderful memory foam mattresses)!
The big log burning fireplace is just priceless in the winter, making it the ‘picture perfect Alaskan winter retreat’
The outdoor hot tub is about as good as it gets, it’s a late model one which is big and deep and it’s kept pristine clean - there really is nothing better than soaking in it after a big day of skiing or trekking!
The host just is lovely and will help you out with just about anything you could think of, we found nothing was ever too much trouble for her and as she lives close by she’s always on hand to help if you need anything which is great but you have total privacy at all times. So many ‘little extras’ are included with this place it really makes it a fantastic deal!
We could not recommend this place enough, in summer or in winter, we absolutely loved it and can’t wait to go back! I viewed just about every rental in Girdwood prior to selecting this rental (as we were staying for quite a while over the winter) and we couldn’t have made a better decision! I also had a good look around while we were here and nothing compared - this is THE PLACE to stay in Girdwood for sure!
