About the property

I bedroom apartment in the heart of Girdwood town square.

Hello, my name is Sam. Welcome to my place. I live in the studio apartment part time and also live elsewhere around Alaska. I'm' happy to share my space with you and yours. The bedroom area has a new firm double size bed purchased January 2018. 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 and book cases secure). 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.

About Samantha Norman

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

Why Samantha Norman chose Girdwood

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Perfect Pet Friendly Girdwood Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed here for a long weekend during ski season and it was absolutely perfect for the two of us and the pup! Really cute place with a great homey feel and everything you would need for a short stay. Easy to keep clean even with a wet pup from playing in the snow. It is a quick drive to anywhere you'd want to go and any easy walk down the street to take the pup out. There is a yoga studio upstairs, but you'd barely notice except to hear people come in later in the morning (after 10 am I believe) which was not an issue at all. We would most certainly stay here again!

Tiny, cute, nice bed, good location. Early morning yoga class right over your head. :/

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute little place. There is a small table and three dining chairs, aside from that just one chair and a bed. I love Yoga, however I don't want to hear it at 7 am right over my head. Not very restfull. Nice covered porch, great central location, cute decor. Not great if you aren't ready to be up with the Yogis at 7 am.

Owner's Response: There are two to three classes at the studio per day otherwise your upstairs "neighbor" is empty. Only twice per week Tuesday and Thursday we have class that starts at 7:30-8:30 am. This is clearly listed in the listing info that the apartment is underneath the towns yoga studio. Sorry to hear it bothered you so much . Your neighbor has n the backside of the apartment is a very quiet couple that lives in the building year round. For a centrally located apartment most find is very convenient.

A great little house in a fantastic central location :)

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely cosy little home walking distance to many cafes, restaurants and bars. Sam was friendly and helpful and looked after us really well. The yoga studio above was also great. I did a class there which was very relaxing. The only issue was that it was a little noisy around 7.30am when the early yoga patrons were coming up the stairs which are right behind the bedroom. This didn't really bother us, I'm just mentioning it in this review in case others might be bothered by this.
