great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this house very much. The location was perfect for us since we used it as our base for the first 3 nights of our trip so we could take day trip out in many different directions and not have to pack up & move each morning. We found Girdwood to be a nice quite town.The house had everything that we needed to be comfortable.

Very comfortable, nice location, and updated kitchen

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for the reasons stated in review title. I requested an iron and ironing board the week before we arrived and both were waiting for us . Really appreciated. Spacious and enjoyed the deck. Every room had at least one window with a screen which was great touch.

Gave it four stars because the loft was quite warm and ceiling fan up there did not affect the sleeping area. Perhaps a portable standing fan coud be added.

Would definitely recommend. Very good value.

Comfy Home

  • 4 of 5

This property is generous in space and amenities that have the comfort of guests in mind. The availability of household basics such as coffee filters, detergent, dish soap, kitchen cleaning supplies etc. virtually eliminate the need to buy (and waste) these items as we often have had to for other rentals. The kitchenware is not only complete but also up to date - you are not getting burned out, beat up hand-me-down pots and pans here. The same can be said of the towels and bedsheets, which, to me, is even more important than the kitchenware. We were also pleasantly surprised by the small store of puzzles and games that kept us busy with our 4 year old when we were indoors.The cottage itself is simple and rustic, typical of the area. It is a no-frills abode but is well appointed and more than functional. It is better than the pictures show. The space is divided into three levels with the first and third floors having the bedrooms and the second floor being the kitchen and living room area. This is ideal for parents who are inclined to enjoy a degree of separation (or privacy as the case may be) from their older children but may present a bit of a challenge for those with younger kids like ours who we were not comfortable leaving to sleep alone on the first floor. It is convenient to the center of Girdwood and the Alyeska Resort for activities and a great base for day trips to Whittier, Portage Glacier and towns further South (Seward, Kenai, Homer). The property's owner was very responsive and helpful which is always a plus. Overall, a great find and a great place to stay.

Girdwood Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was very well appointed. The kitchen arrangement and a great grill made cooking for a group easy. My wife loved the upstairs bed. She thought it was so comfortable she took two naps while we were here! She is normally not a napper. The property was kid friendly and walkable to the playground by kids 5 and older. The location is perfect walking access to restaurants and businesses near the "Chair 4" part of Alyeska resort such as Jack Sprats, Sitzmark and La Bodega as well as businesses in "new" Girdwood.
