Hello, my name is Sam. Welcome to my place. I recently (summer 2016) remodeled my 1 bedroom apartment in girdwood town square! I live in the apartment part time and also live elsewhere around Alaska. I'm' happy to share my space with you and yours. The bedroom n has a new firm queen size bed. There is a full bathroom. The kitchen is fully stocked with many herbs and spices. This apartment is conveniently located underneath the town's yoga studio. Public shuttle service stop is across the street from the post office to take you anywhere you may need to go in the glacier valley. Skiing, hiking, biking are all accessible right outside the front door. Multiple restaurants near by and a delicious coffee shop next door. There are also two playgrounds near by for the kids and the house is very child friendly (outlets are covered). Dogs are welcome upon approval for an additional deposit. If you have dog allergies this may not be the best place for you. My husband and I and our two dogs live here part time. The place is very clean but if you are highly sensitive I would hate for you to suffer while you were here.
I live part time in the property as well and own the Girdwood Yoga and Wellness Shack. The studio opened in the fall of 2014. I have lived in Alaska for most of my life. I have traveled the world and seen many things but there is not much in my opinion that compares to the beauty that can be found in my home state of Alaska.
Samantha Norman purchased this apartment in 2013
This property is a perfect mixture of personal and business. It is a triplex. One unit is rented out longterm, upstairs is the studio, and this rental is my part time home.
You will be walking distance to everything that gird wood has to offer and if you don't feel like walking you can take the shuttle the runs on a regular schedule and drops you off and pick you up right across the street. Come to escape and practice healing your body and mind while you are here.
This spot is super convenient as it is in the middle of downtown Girdwood and a quick drive to the ski hill. Sam was a great host and the cute apartment was just what we needed. Being next to a yoga studio is a great benefit as well! Definitely consider this place for your next trip to Girdwood.
This is the second time I've stayed at one of Sam's rentals and it has been awesome both times. The space is super clean, adorably decorated, and very cozy. Myself, my husband, and our roommate stayed this last time and we felt we had plenty of room. There's ample storage, a kitchen with everything you'll need (we stayed in and cooked some of our meals), comfy beds (main bed and airo bed) and a system for dealing with wet gear. Sam's place is especially nice because it's within walking distance to everything (coffee shop next door, grocery store across the street, restaurants nearby, and of course the Yoga studio!) but it is still very quiet and "away from it all". This spot really is perfect for a cozy retreat that gives you access to fine dining, awesome hiking trails and ski slopes, but also allows you to burrow in and read a book with a delicious cup of tea. Stay at Sam's and you're sure to enjoy your vacation.
My stay in girdwood exceeded my expectations .. I had the best time and thanks to Sam for such a tranquil and beautiful place!! my stay in Alaska will always be one of the biggest highlights of my life.. I would definitely go back and would stay at the yoga shack again ..!!❤️👍𣐼
Girdwood is a wonderful little town nestled in the Chugach Mountains. This place is perfect for people who want to get outside and enjoy all that Alaska is about. Situated on Alaska Hwy 1 - Scenic Seward Highway will take your breath away by how beautiful it is. Only about 45 mins from Anchorage and about 30 mins from entering the Kenai Peninsula. There is beauty everywhere you turn, this location is prime for Alaska explorers. The town itself has enough to make your stay easy. There are a few restaurants for both breakfast and dinner, with a pub located in walking distance. This is also a grocery store located down the street if you'd like to cook your own food while staying at this lovely home. And the post office is right across the street if you may need it. There are many trails in close distance, that all you have to do it bring your rain coat (just in case, usually a little sprinkle, nothing lasted more than 10 minutes while we were there), and enjoy the day.
Now about the place! The listing is accurate and well worth the stay. When you walk into the studio you are welcomed with a home like feel. Everything was up to date, clean, and ready for your stay. All the amenities are available for you: Full kitchen with two large windows were you can get a view of the mountains. The kitchen includes: many utensils for cooking, a stove, refrigerator, kitchen table, and even a few games and books to enjoy about the Alaskan people and much more. The bed is tucked away behind a wall so you can still have some privacy with an open floor plan, which we loved. Samantha makes sure you are well taken care of. When you arrive she will set you right up with everything you need for your stay. There is even a yoga studio within the house for anyone who may want to take some classes. There is also an extra blow-up mattress under the bed if you made need it. There is also a full bathroom with bath, hand, and face towels which I found comforting because there is no greater relief than being able to sit in a warm bath after day hiking; I'm sure its very beneficial for winter skiers as well! I would definitely recommend this home to other friends, family, and any other adventurous travelers I may meet on my travels that want to make it up to Alaska and have a memorable time!
The apartment was clean and comfortable with just the right amount of amenities for a peaceful weekend. I enjoyed two wonderful yoga classes at the attached studio. The location is convenient, next to great coffee and the Merc, and only a short walk away from several restaurants. Good hiking trails nearby. I highly recommend it if you are looking for simple, affordable accommodations and don't want a lot of technology around (no TV, microwave, or internet access - although the coffee shop next door has WiFi). The right size for one person or a couple.
Woah! I cannot say enough positive things about Sam and her place. It was just what we needed for a weekend away from Anchorage. The space is cozy, clean, warm, and comfortable. And it got some nice sunlight, which was nice to wake up to in the morning. The space fit three adults very comfortably. We could walk to all of our favorite spots from Sam's place. I am looking forward to staying here and practicing at the yoga shack again. What loving energy this place has to offer! Thank you Sam!
