Womderful views, very nice home

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well appointed house with beautiful vistas.

The access is easy and well thought out. It has a gas grill and full kitchen.

Nice furnishings and helpful property manager.

Girdwood/ Alyeska is far more beautiful than I could have imagined, this house certainly helped to make the most of that scenic opportunity.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, well appointed, and met our needs (7 adults) very well. Close to, or within driving distance of, many attractions.

Wonderful, updated home with great views!

  • 5 of 5

This home has plenty of sleeping accommodations, great kitchen and outside grill. Close to everything Girdwood, with easy access back to AK1 ( Seward Highway).

It was perfect for our wedding guest who shared the home. Plentbof bathrooms and places to either be together or take a break from each other.

Watching the tram go up to the Seven Glaciers was a nightly bit of entertainment. We did see a momma bear and 2 cubs cross the street, which was also very exciting.

The kitchen was wonderfully stocked with all the one might need to cook with. The fridge and pantry had plenty of leftovers too from prior guests.

Fantastic week in a wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful week! Our group was three couples, and three kids- 18, 15 and 7. There was room for all of us to have some personal space, a great open concept kitchen/ living/ dining room and three full bathrooms (one on each floor of the home). The home was perfect for our group.

We did lots of cooking, and the kitchen was well stocked- both with plates/ glasses & pots/ pans- and also with random pantry items- which we didn't expect! There were even both a charcoal and gas grill for us to choose from- and a fire ring in the back yard which we bought wood for and roasted marshmallows- the kids were thrilled!

The home is in great condition, lovingly cared for, and beautifully decorated. The sheets and towels were good quality and the beds were all comfortable. The owners Steve and Elle were responsive and very helpful. I can't recommend this home highly enough and would rent it again. Thank you for a wonderful family retreat!

Fantastic! Exceeded our expectations in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented Steve and Elle's home to stay in to attend a wedding in the Girdwood area and we all loved staying in their lovely home! It was furnished and decorated beautifully, had very comfortable mattresses in each bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen and every amenity we could imagine wanting.
