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!"

Amazing Property in Juneau Alaska - Owner Erin Was Great to Work With

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect Girlfriend Retreat

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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!!!
