About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment & 1 bath studio (Sleeps 4-6)

Alaska Northern Sands is located on the beach in Auke Bay. This premier rental offers high quality living with spectacular views and great ambiance. While private, it is centrally located with quick access to a wide variety of local activities and sights. We are located in a protected portion of the “Auke Bay banana belt”, where it rains only about half as much as it rains in downtown Juneau.

Your stay in the Penthouse Suite and/or the Ocean View Room also affords you direct and easy access to the beach as well as our beachfront gazebo.

The AKNS Penthouse Suite

The Alaska Northern Sands Suite is approximately 600 square feet. It is a fully furnished apartment with a completely outfitted kitchen. We also have a propane barbecue available for your use on the deck adjacent to your off-street parking area. The Suite has a separate bedroom with a queen bed. There is a full sized hide-a-bed in the living room. In the Suite’s bathroom there is a washer/dryer as well as an iron, ironing board and hair dryer. In addition to cable TV, wireless internet is available. A large covered deck with a table and chairs allows you to dine or relax just outside your front door, enjoying the surrounding ocean and garden views.

The AKNS OVR

The Ocean View Room is about 400 square feet, fully furnished with a queen bed. In addition, we can bring in a twin bed for a third guest. It has a chest of drawers, an armoire, cable TV, a small dining table with 2 chairs, a full sized refrigerator/freezer, and a microwave. Although there is no stove or oven there is an electric griddle along with cooking utensils, glassware, plates and silverware. The bathroom has a shower with a hair dryer. Wireless internet is available and as well as off-street parking. It has a beautiful view of the ocean and our gardens. It has its own entrance two floors below the Suite with easy access to the beach and the gazebo.

The Suite and Ocean View Room are typically booked together providing two couples or a family of 4 an economical way to stay in an outstanding location. However, in some cases the OVR may still be available if our guests only want the Suite. Please contact us if you only interested in the Ocean View Room.

Please note that we are a vacation rental, not a bed & breakfast or a hotel. Accordingly, we do not provide meals or daily maid service for either the Suite or the Ocean View Room.

Check-in time is normally 4:00 pm although we can often check in guests earlier if we have had enough time to clean after our prior guests have departed. Normal check-out time is 10:00 am.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Tom arrived in Juneau in 1977 and Debbie arrived three years later. They completed their new home along with the Alaska Northern Sands Suite and the Ocean View Room on the Auke Bay beach in August of 2005.

Why the Owner Chose Auke Bay, Juneau, AK, USA:
We were extremely fortunate to be able to build our home and the Alaska Northern Sands vacation rental on the Auke Bay beach. It is unique because of its spectacular views, proximate access to the Juneau International Airport, the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal, and shopping as well as the relative quite of the surrounding neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Be sure to bring your binoculars for the best viewing of wildlife and the spectacular scenery! From your accommodations, the gazebo or on the beach our guests frequently see eagles, seals, river otters and ducks. Seasonally they have seen humpback whales, orcas, sea lions, jumping salmon, blue herons, and occasionally the northern lights. Walk down to the beach for some Alaska beachcombing. Or just relax and enjoy the view and the sounds of the ocean waves from our beachfront gazebo.
