Why Mary Grogan chose Alaska

We love the area and the views that our house and apartment provide. Also, the convenience is great! Our home is easy to drive into and close to many different activities both in Juneau and Douglas. We can view the 4th of July fireworks from the front window and attend the Douglas 4th festivities with a short walk. Every 4th Sandy Beach is the venue for a fun celebration with many events and a parade. Gold Rush Days are also held there in June. This is a miner/lumberjack competition that we both really enjoy. There is a cafe and pub within 4 blocks and the premier live theatre in Alaska, Perseverance Theatre, is just down the street. It's also quick and easy to get to unbelievable hiking, skiing and fishing spots.

There are great views both in summer and winter. Summer brings boating! It's fun to see friends heading out for fishing or crabbing on their boats and the cruise ships navigating the water way. Winter brings scenes of falling snow and winter sun on the mountains across the channel.

Then there is the wildlife! It never gets old watching eagles, water fowl, whales, and orcas right out of your windows.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to downtown Juneau and Douglas but away from the crowds with fabulous views of the water and the mountains!

Beautiful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We landed in Juneau and were happy to know we were able to check in early to the home. It was better than we could have imagined. Everything was stocked with soups, spices, etc. I honestly would tell anyone to stay there. Very clean Jacuzzi. Big Closets. Made our trip memorable with my aging mother,,,, lots of photos! Watching the cruise ships come in and the eagles landing on the roof below was spectacular!

Wonderful vacation lodging!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best lodgings we have ever rented for vacation! It is very comfortable, quiet, well-stocked, and tastefully decorated. Every detail is thought of, including bath robes, beach towels for the hot tub, Keurig coffee, comfortable bedding, plenty of towels.

The apartment is spacious and the picture windows give a breathtaking view. We saw many bald eagles fly by and perch in the trees. The hot tub was especially enjoyable. And the proximity to downtown Juneau was perfect; just away enough to feel out of town, but an easy jaunt into town. Just great!

Charming and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Came to enjoy some business and pleasure. The pleasure definitely being staying in this wonderful, charming suite. We enjoyed every minute of it. It was very comfortable and clean! Loved how it was decorated and having a new washer and dryer was a plus. It was fun getting up in the mornings and seeing the bald eagles flying around. Several mornings they were sitting in the pine trees off the back deck. One night we were even lucky to see the Northern Lights right off the back deck!! Very easy access to Juneau and enjoyed the sites of Douglas as well. Would totally recommend this suite and if we are ever back this way we would definitely stay again. Sorry that we checked out to stay in downtown Juneau for our business portion of the trip as this suite was better by far.

Best VRBO we've stayed in. Spectacular views, pristinely clean, perfect location. Miss it already!

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO if not one of the best places my husband and I have ever stayed, hands down -- and we've traveled the world and have stayed in 4- and 5-star hotels! *Pristinely* clean, beautifully decorated, modern but cozy, perfectly organized, with every amenity you could need including a fully stocked kitchen with pantry items, washer and dryer, a grill, and even "Sitting Eagle Guest Suite" robes (cute touch). The best part, the spectacular views of Mt. Roberts, the Gastineau Channel, downtown Juneau and Mt. Juneau out the huge picture windows, all visible from the couch and from the perfectly situated hot tub on the lovely deck. Eagles flew by and rested in the trees right out front every day...awesome. We watched waterfalls form on the mountains, the fog and tides roll in and out, the cruise ships come and go, and the tram creep up and down the mountain...if we didn't have so many activities to do around Juneau, we could have stayed here all day, every day and never gotten bored! In fact, on one super stormy day, we did just that and didn't feel like we missed out on anything. And the (very clean) outdoor hot tub was such a perk after long, active days. The pictures don't do it justice -- they're accurate, but it's really that much better in person. The owners respected our privacy, and we never felt like we weren't totally alone. Everything was perfect so we didn't need any help while there, but leading up to our stay, Mary was super responsive and kind to answer some of our questions about getting around Juneau. To that point: we are big walkers, so we didn't wind up renting a car and didn't miss one. The public buses were super convenient and $2 a ride, and it was easy and quick to call a taxi for a ride from absolutely anywhere when needed, 24/7. It was our first time in Juneau and Alaska, and being over on Douglas didn't stop us from easily getting to all of our excursions and everything we wanted to see. On a nice day, it's a about a 2+ mile walk into town -- fully paved sidewalk all the way with a pretty view of the channel. It was SO nice to have some distance from all the tourists! Island Pub down the street is delicious, too. We were heartbroken to leave and hope Mary and Thom keep this suite open for guests for years to come so we can return! Thank you, Mary and Thom. We'll never forget our stay here and can't wait to be back in beautiful Juneau!
