A cozy and attractive spot!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to the Douglas Guest House very much. It is well-appointed and very comfortable. The nearby hikes were fun and Douglas can boast some great pizza. A binder with info about the house systems (internet, TV, etc) would be a help, but the owners and neighbors were very kind.

Studio with enough space to accommodate a family of four...

  • 5 of 5

We spent 7 full days in Juneau, getting to know the area and enjoying everything that SE Alaska has to offer. The Douglas Guest House was our home base. We had everything that we needed to cook our own meals, sleep comfortably (we are a family of 4), wash our clothes when needed, etc. If we return to Juneau, I would not hesitate to book again. The amenities are fantastic, and the price was very reasonable. We felt very comfortable in our home away from home, and we enjoyed our stay in Juneau very much!

Tranquility.

  • 5 of 5

This was a first time for me in Juneau, let alone Alaska. But it was a trip back home for my wife after being gone for 23 years. After looking around I found this diamond in the rough on VRBO. The owners are fast to respond and very accommodating. When I received the check in instructions it had everything I needed to know and more. Plus the washer and dryer were an added perk and helped out during our stay.

It is a studio, but feels much bigger than it sounds. It slept my wife and I and our 5 year old daughter very comfortably. My daughter loved the pull out trundle and we still had room for 1 more person on the day bed. The location of the Studio is perfect after a long day of being out and about in the city, visiting the Glacier or going out on the boat looking for Humpback Whales which we did see and they are amazing. There is a partial view of the Gastineau Channel, but the best part was a great nights sleep. The room is cozy and has everything you need to feel like you are at home. The kitchen has everything for cooking and a full sized refrigerator. It worked perfect for us.

Now back to the night sleeping. Nothing like a window open and listening to nature or the sounds of a distant ships horn in the morning. I slept the best I have in awhile. I met the neighbors when we were coming and going during the day and they are the most friendly folks I have met while on vacation. This studio is located on a cul-de-sac and has hiking trails leading from the house. It was our own piece of tranquility. My wife was glad to be home again, where she grew up and to show us the sites and sounds of Juneau. Best part of the trip was the smile on her face and my daughter running on Sandy Beach when the tide was out.

Another fun part is this Studio is walking distance to Sandy beach, but remember its uphill coming back, but a fun and relaxing walk it is. We went over the July 4th week and so many activities and so many cruise ships, but nothing was overly crowded at all. We could see the fireworks from Sandy Beach. I will stay here again in the future. If my daughter has any say it would be tomorrow.

As your looking at the pictures on VRBO of the Studio, it definitely doesn't do it justice as it is a lot more inviting and has a warm feeling to it. Enjoy as it was our piece of tranquility and I hope it is yours also.

Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in early November with our two dogs while waiting for her to have our first child. The "Homeaway" app that goes along with this property provides any info you could ever need. NOT that you would need anything as this place has everything your house has, even a Keurig! We were in Juneau on a budget so we cooked our own meals and the house had everything we needed, even a grill on the covered porch. The location was nice and private and the neighbors pleasant. All around great place to stay!

Quiet, cozy get away

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed at the Douglas Guest House in August this year. Although it is a studio apartment, there was enough room for the four of us to spread out. It was helpful that we were out exploring Juneau most of the day. The apartment is on Douglas Island, a short drive across the Gastineau Channel from Juneau. This was not a problem for us as we rented a car during our stay. The apartment was clean and had enough linens for all the beds and for bathing. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware which made it easy to cook breakfast and dinner. The apartment is located close to the ruins of the Treadwell Gold Mine and we enjoyed visiting the area. If we return to Juneau we would definitely stay there again.
