Overview

About the property

Mountain Views, 3 Bed, 2 Bath, 1670 Sf, Located In The Sunny Part Of Girdwood.

Built in 2006, this townhome offers all standard amenities to make your stay in Girdwood comfortable. Vaulted great room ceiling, granite counter tops, heated floors and mountain views highlight this clean and convenient location to use as your Alaskan base camp.

There is a community shuttle stop and bike path at the property, as well as a salmon stream across the street. Restaurants and a quick-mart are located a copule of blocks distant. Wildlife is often seen in the area, including moose and bears.

There are three bedrooms and four beds with two full bathrooms. The kitchen has all cooking necessities and modern appliances. There is a gas fireplace, deck, firepit, satellite TV, Internet and bug screens! Long hours of summer daylight are included at no extra charge.

We prefer to rent to people that are visiting Alaska and plan to use the property as a staging area to enjoy the sites. Because of the other tenants in the complex, we will not rent to people planning to host parties or events on the premises.

About owner/property manager

My husband and I built this four-plex in 2006. We rent three of the units to full-time residents and our unit to summer travelers. We exclusively use our unit in the winter to enjoy skiing at Mt. Alyeska. My husband has been on the Alyeska Ski Patrol for over 20 years and our children grew up skiing on the mountain.

owner/property manager purchased this townhome in 2006

Why owner/property manager chose Alaska

We chose this property because of the wonderful location. During the winter, our property gets a ton of sunlight compared to other properties next to the mountain. We also love how the property is adjacent to the bike trail and across the street from a salmon stream. It is also very close to restaurants and a very short drive to the base of the mountain.

What makes this townhome unique

We have two kids bikes for use and a fire pit with wood right off the back deck. The bike trail makes easy walking to all locations and for exercise. Girdwood is a great jumping off point to visit Whittier, Seward and Chugach National Forest and only a short drive to Anchorage.

Great townhome close to everything

  • 5 of 5

This three bedroom townhome was the perfect base for our Alaskan vacation. We were based in Girdwood for a family wedding at the Crow Creek Mine. It was just down the road so we were close by. It's location is great to be a base to head to other places to see the Kenai pennisula, Whittier, Seward, or many other beautiful places around. Even Anchorage is only about a 45 minute drive away. Communication was super easy with Patty -- she was only a text away!

The home had everything we needed. There was a welcome note waiting for us along with a list of their favorite places to eat and visit. They were spot on. We loved the coffee at The Grind, The Bake Shop and Alpine Bakery were both good. Couldn't miss with pizza at Coast Pizza for a slice or more gourmet at Chair 5. And the views from 7 Glaciers are not to be missed (tip -- book a reservation for dinner or drinks and your tram ride to the top to get to the restaurant/bar is free. If you choose not to eat/drink there, you still get the view or ride!) Didn't make it to Jack Sprat, but will get there on next go around as that is my brother's favorite place in Girdwood!

It had plenty of room for our family of four and everything was very comfortable. We even found travel mugs to use for on the road while we were sight seeing. After we checked out, Patty checked in one final time and wished us well on the rest of our travels in Alaska. She is a very attentive host -- we would definitely recommend her town-home to anyone wanting an easy, comfortable and home-like place to stay away from home!

THE Perfect Place for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I did a once in a lifetime vacation to Alaska with our grandson, son, and daughter-in-law. This home was perfect for us. Patty and Brett were so nice. They were just a phone call away if there was anything we needed. Since they are locals, they were a great resource for information and even helped us get booked with a last minute fishing option that would accept our grandson - most outfitters don't take younger than 7 yrs. I think we managed to take advantage of everything the house offered - including the fire pit off the deck and the small and easy to use gas grill. The grill was important because it was where we cooked our fish each night. Not that we caught any! - thank goodness for the market. :-)

Awesome Girdwood townhome

  • 5 of 5

What a great place in Girdwood! It's beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We arrived after having traveled for almost a week. We came in to a very clean and welcoming townhome. The owner had left us a wonderful welcome card with a basket of snacks. Whittier and the Alaska Wildlife Center. WONDERFUL place to stay!
