The only downside. Checkin and check out. Wish it could be hour earlier and hour later!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your response. Appreciate the review! Glad you wished you could stay longer. When we don't have people staying back to back, I certainly try to work with the check in / check out times. When it's busy in the summer this definitely becomes tough sometimes. Hope to see you again. Chris

Comfy Place to Stay along Turnagain Arm

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed one night at Chris's condo in Girdwood as we began our self-driven tour of the Kenai Peninsula. It was exactly what we wanted. Comfortable seating arrangement in the living area and comfortable beds. Chris's unit is very nicely outfitted, and had little extras like some coffee pods for the Keurig and dish detergent for cleaning up before we left. Although the condo is not in a 5-star resort, it is in an excellent location. We were close to the Alyeska tram which runs up the mountain. We also got a very good breakfast to go at the Bake Shop across the way and ate it in the condo as everyone was getting ready for the day. Chris was easy to work with; highly recommend! Every thing went smoothly, and access to the unit and parking were no problem. Thanks for sharing your place with us, Chris!

Owner's Response: Thanks! I love walking over to the bake shop myself for Breakfast. The "Farmer's" is definitely my favorite. The cinnamon rolls are crazy good too. So glad you enjoyed your stay!

Convenient, comfortable stay in Girdwood.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a great place to stay in Girdwood. It is conveniently located next to the mountain, restaurants, bike path, and is on the shuttle route. It is spacious and was very quiet when we were there. We enjoyed the sauna in the common room, especially since we had it all to ourselves. Definitely would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Yes, many times I've had that sauna to myself. Very underutilized which is perfect. So glad you enjoyed your stay.
