Recent Alaska reviews

  • No need to shop around - would easily go back again

    "My wife and I visited Girdwood with my parents and had a fantastic stay here. The host was extremely accommodating to our late night arrival, and helped answer questions we had about Alaska before we arrived, and even further on our trip. They were a great resource, and it felt so good to be traveling a long ways, but have someone on the other end helping answer last minute questions and curiosities. They also made fantastic recommendations on great places to eat, shop, hike, etc. Inside we found probably the cleanest, most organized rental I've ever stayed in. The place was so quaint, with beautiful woodwork, books, games, DVDs, a compete kitchen, coffees and muffins for breakfast, and a gorgeous walk-out patio within an earshot of a small creek that runs only about 10 yards away. I could have sat there for days. My folks took the bedroom that was very spacious with two closets, and my wife and I took the pull-out sofa which worked just fine and was even already made up for our late night arrival (thank you again). We had plenty of room for bags and gear. There’s even a small coat-rack/shoe/boot area outside the apartment door in a foyer area to put clothes after a wet day of hiking. The property itself is on a small street, so there was very little traffic, very little noise, just pure quiet. The location is also walkable to a few restaurants and stores for food/drinks (about a half mile) and some great hiking trails with trailheads near the resort only being a little over a mile away. Easily walkable. It was a great way to start our trip, and we all agreed that we could have easily stayed longer to just sit and enjoy the apartment as much as we enjoyed hiking and touring throughout Girdwood and the surrounding area. We would gladly go back the next time we come to town."

  • Greatest Experience

    "We had the most wonderful time here. Mostly due to Rocky's homey condo and his gracious help and kindness. He made sure we were well provided for and had info on all kinds of things to do in Alaska. We had originally rented a car but canceled since we found no need for it. Visitors center was a block away. Short taxi to Fred Myer got us our groceries (condo was already well stocked and very homey!) Transportation to zoo, cruises,, etc., was just outside the front door and tour office just out the front door! Great places to eat and just walk to with a great jazz band at one of the Sat/Sun festivals just outside the door. Condo was clean, safe and well maintained. Our trip would have been a great trip but Rocky's help and genuine hospitality was the icing on the cake. Sorry he doesn't have more condos to rent out. He was a very big part of our trip and hope to stay in touch with him. Let him know if he's ever around our place, please let us know. Would be honored to have him as our GUEST!"

  • Great cottage in the woods - convenient to fishing and sight-seeing

    "This was the perfect place for us to stay in Alaska. The cottage is clean and perfect for a couple. It has everything you need to do some cooking. If you want to eat out, you really need to go to Wasilla. We recommend the local guide, Mike Coughlin. We caught so many rainbow trout in 2 days, we lost count. The cottage is right on Willow Creek and if you like solitude, this is the place for you. It is also convenient to lots of sightseeing: We rode to the Independence Gold Mine through Wasilla. We heard the Hatcher's Pass road through Willow is a little difficult to drive. Denali is about 2 1/2 hours away. We did not make the drive, but we had an amazing view from Willow on the Parks Highway. Some other drives we made were to Mr. Alyeska and the Turnaround Arm - also amazing and then to the Matunuska Glacier. The only thing I missed at the cottage was no Wi-Fi, but the Willow library is convenient."

  • Fantastic Kenai River House

    "Our stay at the house was fantastic. The house is beautiful and right on the river. The owners live next door and were very gracious hosts making sure we had everything we needed and even helped us with fishing tips that resulted in a nice catch of salmon!"
