About Amber Babcock

I live in Anchorage, just 45 minutes away from the condo. I love flying around Alaska in our Cessna's (floats and wheels) and traveling. I am the manager, maintenance person, bookkeeper, web developer and housekeeper of this unit - so please let me know if you need anything or see anything out of place which needs fixing or could be improved.

Amber Babcock purchased this condo in 2008

Why Amber Babcock chose Alaska

We bought this condo as our family ski condo and wanted to allow other people to use the property in our absence to enjoy beautiful Girdwood.

LOVED this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our two kids (1 and 3) in June 2014. Gorgeous home in a gorgeous location. The condo was fully equipped (great kitchen for cooking our breakfast and nightly meals), washer and dryer, satellite TV, huge windows in the living room with a gorgeous view. I have nothing bad to say about this condo. It was very close to the resort, although it was summer so we were not participating in snow sports. It is also a very convenient location if you have to go into Anchorage, as my husband did for work. Finally, it is a great location for local sightseeing and outdoor activities. We cannot wait to go back!

Excellent condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to stay. The pictures are spot on. Location is very close to the slopes and chairlift. Owner was very responsive and helpful. Property was clean and meer our expectations. We would definitely recommend to friends, if we are in the area again would definitely stay there! Seven Glaciers restaurant at Alyeska resort is phenomenal!!! Pricey, but excellent food and staff. Lots of hiking trails in the area (went in summer). Beautiful drive to Anchorage, Seward or Kenai. Upside, the condo is well stocked, (from previous renters, I think), downside, the condo is well stocked (no room for our stuff). I wish there was a dresser in the bedroom, but we just used the shelves in the closet. My only advice, check in before going to the store, you might not need to shop. Love that there is a mudroom entrance so we can keep the great wood floors clean. Plenty of parking right outside the door.

We found the accomodations at Alpenglow to be among the nicest we found in Alaska. We found everything we needed and more. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and the notebook about what was available in the community was invaluable. Everything in the condo was clean and well-maintained. We would definitely recommend this property to friends. It is a short drive from Anchorage and provides great access to the Kenai Peninsula.

Lovely Condo in Girdwood!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this beautifully appointed condo. While the steady, cold rain curtailed most of our activities, the warmth and comfort of the Alpenglow more than made up for it. While I was very impressed with the state-of-the-art kitchen, my husband was thrilled with the huge, flat screen tv and amazing sound system. And we both appreciated the sauna when we came in chilled to the bone after our Portage Glacier cruise in the driving rain! The lovely condo turned what could have been a miserable two days into a relaxing respite from the vacation whirl. We hope to return again when the weather is better; there are many hikes to be taken in the area.

Just Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our (too short) summer visit to Girdwood was highlighted by our stay in this condo. The pictures made it look lovely, but even they didn't do it justice. There were just two of us, and I thought it was the perfect size. The remodel of this home was very well done - even the appliances in the kitchen were top notch (ahh, that stove...). It's in a great location - almost right at the base of the mountain by Chair 4, and a leisurely stroll from Alyeska Resort. Girdwood in the summer was beautiful and a great place for hiking and berry picking. I look forward to staying here in the winter and utilizing the fantastic sauna that is in the condo! Oh, and if you do go, make sure you take a look at Amber's book (on their shelf) chronicling the Alpenglow condo renovation - quite a "before and after" masterpiece!

Awesome Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

The condo is new, the materials used in the upgrade are top notch. This condo is SO nice! Amber adds all these little things that made the stay with our kids great. The beds are so comfortable, the TV's nice, and the fire place was inviting after a long day of riding the slopes! We had a great 4 days, even our teenage girls had fun. The walk to the day lodge takes seconds, and the whole experience was very memorable! Thanks again, and we will be beck next spring break!
