We have lived in Alaska for the past 23 years and fell in love with Girdwood the first time we visited this beautiful, scenic town many years ago. We lived in Germany for 3 years and Girdwood brings back wonderful memories of southern Germany. Spending time in Girdwood is a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. We love our home in Girdwood so much and hope you will enjoy it too!
S.G. purchased this House in 2015

Mother’s Day weekend with the family
Beautiful home, easy to work with...very enjoyable trip!
We were in town for a meeting. This house was perfect for our needs. Great house in a beautiful neighborhood. I highly recommend this house for your next stay.
Great spaces, beautiful details
This home is the epitome of Alaska living with an upscale twist. Every room is thoughtfully detailed and makes for an extremely comfirtable stay. The views of Alyeska are glorious! The property manager was welcoming and full of great information. This home is in a part of Girdwood I’d never explored.
My only thought was it is a shame to build this home so close to other homes. There was a lot of neighbor activity.
Delightful stay; spacious & cozy!
This is a must-stay vacation property! Beautiful interior and spacious layout. All appliances, furniture, and décor are made of superior quality materials and in excellent condition. All of the beds are very comfy and warm. Loved entertaining guests with the billiard table and amazing hot tub. The kitchen is off the charts! It's spacious and equipped with all appliances and utensils needed for many people to help cook a group meal. One of the highlights of our stay was for everyone to cook together and mingle & munch in the kitchen. For skiing/boarding, you will need to drive to the resort from this house, but it's only a 3-min drive with plenty of free parking. We will stay here again and recommend to others!
Our group take so a ski trip out west every year and this was one of the nicest houses we’ve ever rented. Very spacious, clean, well-appointed house with a spectacular view of the mountain, and close to everything. Hot tub and pool table were great for apres ski! Property manager was very attentive and friendly. I would definitely come back.
Fabulous for a Family of 10
The house was clean and very comfortable. The kids were originally disappointed that we would not be staying at the hotel this year and would not be able to swim in the pool. The hot tub made up for it. I liked have the space to relax after a day on the slopes and a big kitchen to cook breakfast and dinner for my crew. The garage was an unexpected bonus for loading and unloading all the ski gear. No complaints, the kids are already asking if we can go back next year.
