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.

We stayed at this beautiful and peaceful rental yet again!!! We have rented and stayed here for the past 3 years at least twice per summer. We keep renting again and again because it is such an amazing place to be. Property is so well maintained and so perfect for our family. We ALWAYS enjoy our stay.
Amazing Property in Juneau Alaska - Owner Erin Was Great to Work With
Erin's home was amazing - beautiful home and views! This property is an absolute must in Juneau! We had 3 couples and it was perfect with room to spare. The location is great - minutes to everything you want to do in Juneau. If we are ever back in Juneau this will be where we will stay again. Highly recommend this property! Thank you Erin for letting us share your home! It was great working with you!
Fabulous property and fabulous owners
Our annual family vacation at this property was outstanding. We are frequent VRBO users and have had many great experiences but this was in the top 2. While the property was great, the real joy was the owners. What I really loved was everything was very organized and they provided a ring binder that covered almost anything you needed to know. We had 2 small problems with the grill and internet and Ruben was there within the hour. On his second trip he found out that we had caught some Salmon that needed to be filleted and seeing our lack of progress did it for us, recommended a recipe and built the tin foil tray to grill with! I would rent this great property in a heart beat.
Third year running now of renting this property. Every year we just say Wow!!!! Beautiful location, awesome home, owners are excellent. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay with our grown kids, teen-age grandchildren, and 5 year old grandchild. Just perfect!!
Perfect Girlfriend Retreat
Seven longtime girlfriends (age 65+) gather every year to celebrate our friendship. This house was perfect for us. It was clean and spacious. And the views were spectacular! When not out enjoying the many activities Juneau has to offer, we spent hours around the dining room table and the cozy sitting area. Everything we could have wanted was provided. Thank you Erin!
I left a note in the welcome book, but to re emphasize, we, all 9 of us, really loved it. Especially for the view. There was a few repair problems that need attention before the next reservation of people arrive (things that were broken before we got there). We left it cleaner than it was found, but we had professional cleaners with us.
If we ever go to Alaska again, we will let you find a home for us!!!
