About Bob Giroux

Owners have lived in Alaska for over 40 years and are a semi-retired couple who travel expensively in the 'Lower 48' but continue to call Alaska 'home'. During the summer they enjoy spending time on the Kenai River fishing for Alaska salmon. During the fall they enjoy the Adirondacks in NY where they have a small cabin on the Ausable River. The winters are spent mainly in Florida avoiding the cold snowy weather they have enjoyed all those years. They maintain a small apartment over the garage at said property for when they are in Anchorage.

Large home, perfect for a stay with extended family

  • 4 of 5

Homey and comfortable are good words to describe this large home. Five adults and one infant had ample space in this home. The home was very clean. The decor is a little dated but the home is very well taken care of. My mother, who has mobility issues, stayed with us. The home offered a two step entry into the house and a downstairs bedroom, bath, and family room. The downstairs does have single steps into the living rooms and kitchen areas.

The owner should highlight ease of accessibility for elderly travelers. Finding a home with few stairs is very hard to find in Anchorage. If you are traveling with an elderly family member this home is a good option.

We did see a moose walking up the driveway while we were there. The home is very convenient to anything in Anchorage. The zoo is across the street!

Outstanding house rental fir a crowd

We had a wonderful time. My brother had a momentous life event and my spouse, parents, and 4 kids came to celebrate. The house accomodated us easily and was well stocked with equipment for cooking, laundry, and lots of common space.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My big family of 8 stayed at the beautiful home for our family vacation this Christmas and it was wonderful! We had an amazing time. Was very spacious and had enough room for the 8 of us to enjoy our home without being on top of eachother. Was very clean, beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you need. We had fun family game nights, movie nights and a holiday party with our local friends and family. Great for entertaining. The owners of the home are quick to respond and very accommodating. So happy we chose this home for our family. Made our vacation just perfect!

We will definitely stay here again if we visit Alaska again😀

The house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The rental of this house made our vacation. It was spacious for our family to relax and enjoy and not be tripping over each other. It was easy to find and well equipped with whatever we needed. We will rent again for our next trip to the Anchorage area.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

Everything we expected and more. The house is easy to find and easy to get around town, even in the snow and ice. The house was very warm during our entire stay, even though the outside temps were well below freezing the entire time. The house worked perfectly for us.

Everything was exactly as described and in most cases, even better. The three living areas made entertaining very easy (we had a small wedding party there one night for 20 local people) and the kitchen and two dining areas worked out great. The bedrooms were all well appointed with comfortable beds and great linens. We had a small family dinner for 12 from both families in the wedding and it was very easy to sit and visit with one another, most people opting for the main living room with the outstanding rock fireplace. I was very surprised that the furnishings were so well appointed, many appearing to be antiques and all representing the quality and sturdiness of Alaska. All of my son's friends and our new extended family were all impressed with the house. I have rented houses via VRBO from Florida to Hawaii (literally) and I have never been so impressed with a property as this one.

We were also very fortunate that the owner Bob was in town during our stay. We had 4-5 inches of snow each of the first 2 nights were there and Bob used his Bobcat to clear the entire parking area each day as well as pack down the drive to the main road. I cannot say enough good things about the property and Bob, easily the best experience I have had with vacation rentals, ever !
