About Theresa Abbas
We have lived in different areas of Alaska for the past 17 years. We are a very active family that loves to travel and explore. We love camping, boating and doing anything active in this incredibly beautiful country we live in. We truly enjoy meeting new people and are always excited to help travelers enjoy the most of Juneau.
Theresa Abbas purchased this House in 2008
Why Theresa Abbas chose Juneau
We built this vacation rental in this area so others could experience the quiet, peaceful and beautiful surrounds that we see every day.
What makes this House unique
Hillside Haven Guest Suite offers a relaxing get away in the Auke Bay area of Juneau. It has an enclosed steam shower with a two person whirlpool tub, full kitchen, an amazing view of Auke Nu Cove, a huge bedroom and radiant in floor heat. We are close enough that you can walk to the Alaska Marine Highway Terminal or Auke Bay recreational area. The suite is in a separate building with your own private entrance.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Very clean, comfortable and a great location.
Great week in Juneau at the Relaxing Hillside Haven!
Great location between the city and the wilderness...just minutes to the glacier! The view is nice/relaxing but limited by trees and there is not a lot of outdoor cooking/living space. But, we were not a the house that much anyway (and there is a beautiful picnic areas just down the road).
Very quiet and peaceful property with a really nice host family! They were out of town (out on their boat) a lot during our stay, but it was enjoyable getting to meet them on a brief stop at home.
They are starting a home improvement project/addition soon...timber and equipment in the drive in preparation of the project.
The drive is very steep, but not an issue with our AWD rental.
We did not happen to see any wildlife at the house, but our visit to Juneau did result in seeing 15 bears and countless whales! What a week!
We would highly recommend this property, especially for couples looking to cook/eat a few meals at home during their stay! The best sleep I've had in years! And, the landscaping is beautiful!
By the way, you can easily walk to the Ferry Terminal and the shower is fantastic (as long as you do not have any limitations that would keep you from using the step stool to get in and out)!
Thanks for sharing your home Theresa!
We had a great time in Juneau. It was relaxing coming come to the house every night for a week.
The kids enjoyed hiking in the national park behind their property and walking down to the beach just down the road. It was quiet, clean, and relaxing! It was great being able to do laundry!
COULDN’T BE MORE PERFECT!
Hillside Haven and the Abbas family were perfect hosts, and the guest apartment they built was an ideal location for celebrating our 35th anniversary to escape the Texas summer heat for the stunning beauty of Juneau. The view from the living room and breakfast area was an inlet of the bay, where we could watch boats, gulls and the tide. Another window gave us a stunning view of the forest. There are some natural trails and creeks running through their property, which backs up to the Tongass National Forest. Theresa’s hospitality was superb, and when she and Tommy went fishing one morning and caught a huge halibut, they shared the meat with us for that evening’s dinner. Theresa also hand-gathers seaweed from islands in the vicinity, and makes seasonings and snacks from it. I bought some to take home, it was absolutely delicious (and very nutritious). The apartment is beautifully-appointed with nice furnishings and luxurious bedding and towels. The rainforest shower already has us making plans for remodeling our bathroom at home!
Short drive to SO MUCH
We were in the area for the week to visit our daughter who lives in downtown Juneau and were looking for somewhere outside of town to stay. Well, what we found was perfect! Turn left and you're a short drive to civilization. Turn right and you're "out the road" . Great place for couples who are looking for a taste of real Alaska. It's close to some much....Saint Theresa's, Mendenhall Glacier Park, The Docks, Auke Bay...the list goes on and on. And the food (the food and coffee from Gonzo AK, the fish and chips at the Sandbar and Grill, the coffee and the WATER. Such a magical place.
Theresa and Tommy have a beautiful place. We slept great, eat great and had a wonderful time!
Gracious host. Clean and comfortable.
Close to ferry dock and marina.
Located in beautiful Auke Bay, Hillside Haven is 1 mile from the Auke Bay (Don Statter) Marina, 4 miles from the airport and 13 miles from downtown. Away from the cruise ship crowds of downtown, Auke Bay offers a peaceful relaxed setting with breathtaking views and boundless outdoor opportunities.
