Awesome place to stay
Kathy was amazing to work with. The property was such a peaceful and relaxing place the 2 weeks we spent there. It was hard to say goodbye when the time came. I would give this property more than the 5 stars allowed.
David, it was such a pleasure having you stay with us! Thank you for the kind words!! Come back to Juneau next summer, we will be waiting for you and your lovely family!
From the early communication requesting property and rental information to booking, arrival and our enjoyable stay to checkout, every detail was perfectly handled. Kathy and Jag were awesome. They made sure all our needs were taken care of and questions about activities were answered.
The location was perfect for us, situated on the waterfront in a beautiful cove. Transportation to the town was easy. With Safeway and Costco less than fifteen minutes away, it was effortless to stock up on food for our ten day stay. The kitchen was well stocked with all the items we needed to prepare meals being provided. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. The best was that the kitchen, dining, family room and balcony all took advantage of a beautiful view of the cove where we enjoyed watching the eagles and dolphins.
If you are concerned about the location being out of town, don’t be. After exploring the area, we were glad we selected this location. It truly gives you the feeling you are in Alaska and it was nice to be away from the cruise ship crowds, yet close to the glaciers, lakes, hiking trails and fishing.
If you are looking for and awesome location and amenities with wonderful caring hosts look no further, this is the location for you.
Thank you Kathy and Jag for welcoming my family and making sure we enjoyed our stay.
We really enjoyed having you stay with us! You and your family will definitely get the "most miles logged award" I truly appreciate your honesty regarding needed upgrades. Hope your summer continues to be full of exploration and adventures!

Family Trip to Juneau
Great location and awesome house located far from the cruise crowd yet close enough to get any of the local interest points easily. We watched porpoise and eagles every day in the cove and spotted a pod of orca out in the bay. Kathy is a great host able to provide plenty of recommendations to keep you busy. My family of 5 fit easily and we needed nothing to make our own meals.
I can't recommend this house enough.
Thank you so much for your awesome review! Really enjoyed having you and all the girls stay with us! Hope you are having a great summer..... maybe see you in Key West someday!
Perfect stay in Juneau.
We absolutely loved our stay in Kathy's house. The location is fantastic, right at a little beach and so close to everything in the area. The house is beautiful, very clean and had everything we needed. We would love to come back for more Alaska adventures.
Susanne, thank you for the kind review. It was a pleasure to have you and your family here for your Juneau adventure! Please come visit us again, if you return to Alaska!
Beautiful home with spectacular view!
We spent a week enjoying this home and didn’t want to leave! The house was spacious and very clean - it comfortably fit our family of 6. The kitchen was stocked with all of the appliances, pots/pans you would need to cook a meal at home. Most of all, we loved waking up every day to the beautiful view of the ocean and our children loved playing on the beach. I hope to stay here again one day!
