The property was amazing! It has all of the comforts of home located in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here!! The location can't be beat. We were a few minutes away from everything worth doing in Girdwood. The home itself is very well appointed. The linens are great. We cooked and baked in the kitchen without any issues. We would love to return here in the future.

Nothing like it

  • 5 of 5

From the second the house appears on the gravel road leading up to it you will pinch yourself and say This is perfect and how did they ever build a place like this up here ? The pictures on the internet cannot possibly do a home like this justice as not only is the home incredible but the surrounding forested land equally so To add to the welcoming Sarah greets you walks you through the house and shows you all the how to operate everything and I mean everything From a sauna to a hot tub to the fireplaces a TV with some 200 channels all functional in this isolated location

The house is named Nirvana North by the owners After this stay if they exist I am sure going to try and find their Nirvana South East and West and hopefully rent those places too

Hidden oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This stunning property is deigned with luxury and surrounded by nature. Upstairs room felt like a magical tree house that I never wanted to leave. It was so easy to spend the time inside or step outside for hiking; easy to get to Anchorage and the trails all around are so beautiful. Sarah was great to work with and was an invaluable resource for all things in Girdwood. Thank you very much!

Always a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this property many times. It is our go-to place in Girdwood until we build our own mountainside retreat - which won't be nearly as extravagant! We love this property and we are never ready to leave. I am sure we will be back again soon!!!

Amazing slice of paradise in Alaska

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at this beautiful modern home twice and can't wait to return again. Everything from the design of the home to it's location is perfect. Situated perfectly between Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula you will have no shortage of things to do. The home itself is nestled in a beautiful forrest that gives the sense of privacy and peace yet still a short drive to the ski resort and restaurants. Inside you will find all the high end amenities available today and modern art throughout. Having traveled the world extensively I can unequivocally say this is our favorite location to visit.

Girdwood is a year-round ski resort community in Alaska. It lies in a valley in the Chugach Mountains near the end of the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet, 36 miles (61 km) southeast of Anchorage proper.

It is surrounded by seven permanent glaciers. Summer activities include hiking, fishing , rafting and mountain biking but Girdwood is best known for winter skiing and snowboarding at Alyeska Resort on Mount Alyeska. Girdwood has the northernmost rain forest in the world. Many visiters choose to base their Alaskan vacation out of Girdwood because of it's small unique mountain side community.
