About Erin

I am a lifelong Alaskan. I was born in Juneau and raised between here and Sitka. I love to travel, camp, hike, ski, snowmobile and photograph my hometown. In 2011, my husband and I started renting vacation homes in Juneau to help travelers experience their family vacation surrounded by beauty, the comforts of home, and lots of space to spread out.

Erin purchased this house in 2013

Why Erin chose West Juneau

When this property became available, I wanted to create another incredible home for locals and visitors to enjoy as their personal retreat.

What makes this house unique

My favorite attributes of this property are the gorgeous interior wood work, the awe-inspiring views, and the close proximity to local shopping, restaurants, and attractions.

Right behind the house is the trailhead to the Treadwell Ditch trail and the Dan Moller trail. These are used in Summer for hiking, and it Winter for cross country skiing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The house was perfect for our stay. Comfortable, convenient, nicely decorated, and with modern amenities included- BBQ grill, hot tub, etc. The view is unbeatable! To top it off, the landlord was nice and made the accommodations easy. I highly recommend this house to vacationers in Juneau!"

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this home for the past four years. We couldn't say enough good about the home. It is just the perfect place to be when you are in Juneau! The owners are quick to respond with any questions or issues that may arise. If you are looking for a comfortable; well laid out; clean; and charming place to spend your Alaska vacation look no further! You will not regret your experience.

Beautiful home with a beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

This home very comfortably housed our 3 generational family of eight. The kitchen was up to the standards of my gourmet chef son-in-law. The home is on Douglas Island, just over the bridge from downtown Juneau. We enjoyed the quiet neighborhood and the spectacular view of Juneau with cruise ships coming and going. All in all, a home that comfortably accommodates groups.

Stunning views and wildlife viewing

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for seven family members coming to Juneau for a family reunion. It was absolutely stunning....even for us Juneauites! That hot tub they have has the best view of any hot tub ever! And it was a never ending source of entertainment, watching ships and planes come in, spotting goats on the mountain, watching eagles soar, seeing deer all around the property. It helped that the weather was gorgeous their whole stay but I know seven Texans who had THE BEST vacation of their lives (their words) and this rental was a big part of that!

Beautiful Alaskan experience with a view

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed gathering with family and friends in this gorgeous home. It was clean, and very comfortable. Living room had comfortable chairs to sit in and beds were comfortable. The view was beautiful and provided a great backdrop to great conversation. We felt safe, and happy to have family here. I'd recommend this unit.
