Pat's Place is a secluded, waterfront home featuring some of Alaska's most extraordinary views.
The home comes with a car, conditions apply. The home is located about 10 miles from shopping, restaurants, and the airport, and about 20 miles from down town Juneau. The Master Bedroom has a King Platform bed, and a private bathroom, and private balcony over looking the cove and woods. Their are two additional bedrooms upstairs that share a common bath. The first bedroom has one queen bed and balcony with panoramic views that overlooks the ocean and distant mountains. The second bedroom has two single twin beds plus a sleeping loft with a full size air mattress. In addition their is also a full Kitchen, Dinning area, Living and Family room, plus a half bath with washer & dryer.
The home also comes with a gas BBQ, fire pit, two Kayaks, and 7 seat SUV. (2002 Ford Explorer), for stays of 6 or more nights. You will receive the car full of gas and it is expected to be returned full. A 25 cent per mile usage fee will be charged at the end your stay. In the winter with snow and ice on the ground it may be necessary to park on the street, and walk down the steps to the house (96 covered steps) If your elderly or in poor health, going up the steps could be a challenge. A new driveway has been added, that will take you all the down to the house, but it is fairly steep, and requires a 4 wheel drive vehicle which the Ford Explorer is. The upper driveway is also somewhat steep and should only be handled slowly and in reverse into it, since it's very tight to try and turn around at the bottom of that driveway. The upper driveway will save you about 30 steps to the top. You will be briefed further on the driveways after your arrival. After you park the car at the house, at the bottom of the hill, simply walk behind the house and enter through main entrance, at the side of the house. Do not enter the house through the door at the Master Bedroom.
Activities while in Juneau, include, wildlife viewing, hunting, fishing, whale watching, hiking, kayaking, Glacier & Historical tours, Flight seeing (Plane or Helicopter), & boating,
A great home for family reunions, weddings, girl/guy getaways, hunting/fishing trips, honeymoon, anniversary, graduation, holiday/birthday celebration, and extended stay housing.

About Pat Coyle
I was born at a very young age, the result of unprotected sex. I'm the only son with eight sisters and we grew up in a house with one bathroom, that's how I learned how to dance. Being an only son did have some advantages, I got my own bedroom, the living room. You might think sleeping on the couch as less than ideal, be it did prepare me well for married life. My parents are Irish, and right off the boat, making me 100% FBI, Full Blooded Irishman. We grew up in the Philadelphia area where they speak English with a Sylvester Stallone accent. When I was 14, I ran away from home, and without even committing a crime, my parents promptly joined the Witness Protection Program. I admit, I was no child Prodigy, but I did graduate in the top 85% of my High School class. Nobody thought I would do that good. I'm sometimes embarrassed to say I went to Penn State, with all the scandals, but I have to admit, college was seven of the best years of my life. I just wished I'd a finished. After college I joined the Navy, those were my Officer & Gentleman days. Although some might dispute the Gentleman part. My main career in life was as a pilot for the US Customs Service. It consisted mostly of chasing Drug Smugglers and Money Laundries around around the world. I used to always say, 'A good day on my job, is usually a bad day for someone else'. After 28 years of Federal Service I retired from Uncle Sam in 07, and promised my folks I would never run away again. I soon found myself in the Caribbean flying Seaplanes and Helicopters, and those were my Jimmy Buffett days. With a hot passion to live in Alaska and fly the bush I moved to Sitka in 09 and had a real cool job flying in SE Alaska. I moved to Juneau in 2011 and got the most primo job, flying Lear Jets for an Air Ambulance company. I do hope you enjoy my profile and realize it's not all true, and perhaps we will meet face to face in the future.
Pat Coyle purchased this House in 2014
Why Pat Coyle chose Juneau Borough
I recently purchased this property with the thought of making some big home improvements. I'd like to install an inclined elevator to go up and down the hill and a floating dock for a boat and possible a floatplane. Needless to say both of these items are extremely expensive and one way to help off set the cost is put the house on VRBO. So come on up and check it out. I'd love to meet you.
What makes this House unique
I'd have to say the two most unique features of this waterfront house are are the beautiful panoramic views and the total isolation. Whether it's fishing, hunting, hiking, mountain climbing, kayaking, or just plain relaxing this location has it all. Even when the weather is bad you will feel relaxed and on vacation in this home

Everything we hoped and more!
We loved our stay at Pat's house! The house was plenty of room for all of us women and was a perfect get away from our daily lives. Pat's house is a place i know all my employee's will hold dear to their hearts, because this is where we connected as a "family", instead of just co-workers. We have training in Juneau once a year and we hope to rent from Pat again. The house was beautiful, the scenery was beautiful and the location was perfect! We even liked the stairs!! lol
Truly lovely stay!
We booked a stay at Pat's Place for a family vacation that included my brother, his 2 children (18-20 y.o.) and S.O. and my husband and me. So, 6 full-sized people who don't always live together. The house was perfect - the master is on the first floor, allowing my husband and me a separate space and my brother's family took the second floor, with a separate bath. The view is so beautiful, there was a stream running through the property, the drive to Juneau is easy and the stay was fantastic. Pat could not have been nicer, meeting us at the airport to give us a quick tour through town and orientation at the house. The house is very comfortable and easily accommodated 6 of us. To know: there's no Wi-Fi or cable at the house, but we got decent cell service for checking email. On the flip side, you can use the excuse that you don't get Wi-Fi to not have to check work emails... For super-connected people in tech, we didn't miss cable or Wi-Fi and Pat has a nice selection of videos. Bring a couple of games, put down your screens and enjoy a breath. Pat also keeps the wood well stocked and the wood stove was awesome. Lots of nice touches and all the comforts of home. We highly recommend Pat's Place!
Our stay at Pat's Place was peaceful and idyllic. The waterfront views provided hours watching fish jump, eagles soar, a humpback whale cruise past, and a pod of porpoises playing in the cove. The house was immaculate when we arrived. The five in our party had plenty of room to spread out and not feel cramped. Pat is a gracious and attentive host and warmly welcomed us into his home. Being able to use Pat's Explorer was great - we had freedom to roam and it was a great bargain compared to a rental. We lucked out on the weather the week we were there - 70s and sunny! Highly recommend Pat's Place!! We would go back again.
These guys were wonderful. I really hope they come back again
Beautiful, Rustic, Private
What a wonderful place to relax, recharge yourself and enjoy the beauty of Juneau.
You guys were great. Would love to have you back anytime
This an amazing place. The house is beautiful and the surrounding area has amazing views.
There were six of us in our group. The house was roomy enough for everyone. The views from the decks were spectacular. We saw whales, otters and seals almost everyday. Bald eagles were everywhere. We fished right off the rocks in front of the cabin. It was a wonderful trip. Having access to a vehicle made it so easy for us to come and go as we pleased. The host was helpful and gave us tips for sightseeing and fishing. We all want to go back next year, we will definitely be staying at Pat's Place. I love Juneau, and this is most definitely the place to stay!
Extraordinary, Beautiful, and Amazing!
My daughter and I stayed at Pats Place 9/12-9/20 and we were in heaven! The home is clean, spacious, comfortable, and well-stocked with all the necessities. Amazing views of the waterfall, rainforest, ocean, and mountains! Pat was out of town and spoke with my daughter and she said he was so nice and helpful. Beth, his friend and housekeeper picked us up at the airport and she was so nice and gracious. She carried my luggage down the many steps. By the way, we enjoyed the many steps because it was so beautiful going up and down. We loved them lit up at night. I would recommend this home for a fabulous Juneau vacation. In fact, my sister and her family are going to stay in Pat's home next year. My husband couldn't make the trip and he was very jealous :-) and we are going to go back so he can kayak, fish, hike, use the fire pit, and hike to the Ice Caves. We were so grateful to use Pat's SUV and we explored Juneau and did many activities and tours. We did the helicopter tour and landed on the icefield on Herbert glacier. We walked on the icefield and it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We went to St. Theresa's Shrine and it was peaceful and beautiful. We walked around downtown and did the Tramway and hiked up at the top. It was breathtaking! We went to the State Museum and that was wonderful. We toured the salmon hatchery and loved it. We went to the Mendenhall Glacier and walked to nugget Falls and it was a powerful experience. We went on the Whale Watch Tour and it was so nice just to go out in the boat and see the scenery. We passed Admiralty Island where a lot of bears live and had 2 Humpback whales play around the boat and one jumped out of the water and another surfaced right next to the boat. It was amazing! We drove the 48 mile Glacier Highway North and South and there are wonderful hiking trails that we tried out. We carried bear spray just in case we ran into a brown bear Yikes but thankfully we did not :-) There is a beautiful State Park north of Pat"s home where you can see Glacier Bay National Park in the distance and the Lynn Canal runs through the park and it was incredible. There was a black bear with her cub that went down to the canal and we were so amazed! We joked that we were in a National Geographic documentary. We did the rainforest tour which was fabulous and ate at the Salmon bake which was really neat. We didn't cook and ate at fabulous restaurants. Thank you Pat! We had a memorable and extraordinary vacation!
Without a doubt the biggest tourist attraction in Juneau is the Mendenhall Glacier. An easy drive, it is centrally located between the house and downtown, Most tours are self guided and can last anywhere from two hours to two days. Their is a Park Service facility there and can answer most questions you have about the Glacier and the surrounding area. Not seeing the Glacier while in Juneau is like not seeing the Eiffel Tower when in Paris. Juneau and all of SE Alaska is know for it's world class fishing. Some of the best salmon and halibut fishing is just a few feet off our shores. Charter fishing boats are just a few miles away in Auke Bay, (6 miles) and also downtown. You can cook your catch on your outdoor grill and if your very successful, ship home the rest. Of course an Alaska fishing license is required. Whale watching is also very popular, but no need to charter a boat since the whales are constantly breaching within view of the back deck. Another popular attraction are helicopter tours of the Glacier, where they fly you up to the top of a Glacier and you land and walk around. Their are 4 local helicopter operators and one is bound to meet any specialized needs. Bring your camera on this trip, cause it's sure to be breathtaking. If you make a day trip to the city plan on a trip up the Mt Roberts Tram. Not only will the view at the top be breathtaking but their are occasional shows and a fabulous restaurant to eat in while enjoying the panoramic views. Another popular downtown tour is the old mine. Juneau got it's start as a gold mining town and it's what put Juneau on the map. Highly recommend at least a day trip to the city for shopping, restaurants, and tours
