About Dan Abts

Dan and Kim have lived in Alaska since 2000 when they were lucky enough to have the Air Force station them in the Great Land. The first thing they did after buying their first home was to get a condo in Girdwood. They love to ski with their 3 children and watch them race in the Alyeska Ski Club. When not skiing they love to spend time in Girdwood, hiking, biking and enjoying outdoors.

Dan Abts purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dan Abts chose Girdwood

We bought and remodeled this condo to take advantage of the slopeside location, the spectacular views and the unique rooftop balcony. It provides the space and comfort needed for our family and all the ski gear that goes along with having a family of skiers.

What makes this condo unique

When the weather is nice, you can't find a better spot than the roof top balcony. The views of the surrounding Chugach Mountains will take your breath away!

If the weather isn't perfect you will still enjoy keeping warm by one of the fireplaces while gazing out the windows at the mountains. You are steps away from fabulous hiking, biking, skiing, dining and night life, so don't forget to get out and go experience Alaska.

Loved the condo and area so much that we hated to leave

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this condo and loved the location and convenience of it! It is a short walk to very good restaurants and the ski slopes. This condo was immaculately clean, neatly decorated and the kitchen was fully stocked. The Upstairs TV's did not have cable access, but you could stream Netflix if you had a laptop. That was not a problem for us at all, as we did not come to Alaska to watch TV in bed! We came for the sights and scenery all around!! There are so many beautiful trails and so much to do outdoors. Out of our week long stay, it got up to 75 1 day, and we used the fans and opened windows to keep it cool when we were there at night. It never got hot at all, and we never missed the AC. We plan to return to this condo in the winter for skiing/snow fun. I can only imagine how much fun this area is during the busy season!! For us, Girdwood is the perfect spot, since it is centrally located to everything we like to do!! I do not think you can find a better condo anywhere else in Girdwood!!

A beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed here and on both occasions I spent the better part of a month. The unit is close to great hiking and dining and most of the time it is a very quiet place to hang your hat and to base your trips out of. Also, Dan is always helpful and easy to contact with question.

Great location; Quality stay with nice amenities and views.

  • 4 of 5

I don't normally write reviews but in this case I am for those who are like me - you are hoping to get an inside scoop on whether this is the right place. When I travel I prefer 3 star and better so I was happy with this condo. It is located in a beautiful area with easy access to the Kenai Peninsula, Whittier, and Anchorage. The condo can easily fit a couple with 4 children or 6 adults (2 sharing a double bed in the master bedroom). The bathroom is nice with good shower pressure and all sleeping quarters are upstairs. There is a nice large TV and fireplace downstairs (although we never turned on the fireplace - Alaska is nice in July/August!) as well as a full kitchen. We all loved the large and comfortable sofa. We enjoyed the view off the downstairs balcony and even saw a mama bear with 3 cubs on our last day.

The only suggestion I have for the owners is to put a screen on the upstairs window because it was very warm at night and you don't want mosquitoes in the room. I imagine though that it is rare to have such warm evenings in Alaska so normally this is probably not a problem. This condo was perfect for our stay - a big thanks to the owners for making such a nice place affordable.

Owner's Response: Very Nice review! We agree, Girdwood is the best place to be in Alaska and it's the perfect home base for seeing the everything from the Kenai up to Talkeetna. And This Slopeside location makes it "The BEST" place to be in Girdwood. Thanks for the suggestion and the awesome review!

Sweet little condo with mountain views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed three nights in Dan's Alyeska condo and enjoyed it very much. The condo itself is updated with expansive views of the mountains from the living area on the main floor, the main bedroom on the second floor and, of course, the roof top terrace. It had a nice, well-equipped kitchen and comfortable living area. It also had a cute bedroom for kids, with bunk beds and a loft sleeping area, which we did not make use of. Things to note for future renters--the bedrooms are located up a sturdy spiral staircase, as is the only bathroom (with a whirlpool tub, I might add); the roof top terrace is also accessible through this level and is a large area shared with another condo.

The only negatives I can think of is that the exterior of the building looks a little worn, but I imagine the the winters there are pretty hard on the paint and decking. The one other thing was that the pay washer in the lowest floor of the building (one of the reasons why we stayed there, so that we could wash clothes on an extended vacation), has a "load sensing" feature that did not function properly. I put in 3/4 of a load of clothes and it only filled about 1/4 of the way that it should, leaving us to cart extra water down there to fill it up to the point where it wouldn't damage our clothes. That's something that should be brought to the attention of the maintenance people of the building.

Dan, our host, was very receptive and helpful with questions and prompt in sending us the information in how to access the building and condo. And the condo was very clean, something that's important to me. Overall, I would definitely recommend the Slopeside Condo if staying in the Girdwood/Anchorage area!

Perfect for Us

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our vacation staying at the Girdwood Slopeside Condo. To save money on food we stopped at Costco in Anchorage and stocked on on food. The kitchen at the condo is well stocked. The condo is right at the foot of a ski slope. During our stay we saw numerous black bears right from the balcony. Don't worry! These bears seem weary of humans. There is a wonderful comfortable pit-group couch in the living room to rest on after hiking all day. If you want to go on excursion for the day I recommend the 26 Glacier Cruise out of Whittier which is not too far away from the condo. The owner Dan was also very helpful answering any questions I had about the condo and about things to do in the area.

Owner's Response: Deborah, Dave, Thanks for the great review and the photos you sent of the bears walking through the parking lot next to the Bear Cub Quad chairlift. Glad you had a great time and I also recommend the 26 Glacier Tour out of Whittier AK. Hope you can come back again. dan

Girdwood is home to Alyeska Ski Resort and is a destination resort town. You can find adventure every day right in Girdwood. There's world class skiing in the winter and in the summer the number of potential activities escalates exponentially, from extreme down hill mountain biking to bore tide SUP and everything in between. Some of Alaska's Best Dinning experiences can be had in Girdwood. The Seven Glacier's at the top of tram offers 5 star gourmet food and spectacular Mt. Views. The Double Musky is Nationally recognized for it's Cajun cuisine and famous pepper steak. Our favorite place though, is Jack Sprat and it's right next door to the condo building. Within a short drive of Girdwood is Whittier Alaska gateway to Prince William Sound. There you can take epic glacier tours, salmon and halibut charters and even get in the water for SUP or kayaking. Don't forget to take a few hikes while in Girdwood. The Winner Creek trail is a must. The North Face trail is good if you're looking for a climb with a free tram ride back down. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, we will gladly share our secret spots.
