Why Mary Grogan chose Douglas

We love the area and the views that our house and apartment provide. Also, the convenience is great! Our home is easy to drive into and close to many different activities both in Juneau and Douglas. We can view the 4th of July fireworks from the front window and attend the Douglas 4th festivities with a short walk. Every 4th Sandy Beach is the venue for a fun celebration with many events and a parade. Gold Rush Days are also held there in June. This is a miner/lumberjack competition that we both really enjoy. There is a cafe and pub within 4 blocks and the premier live theatre in Alaska, Perseverance Theatre, is just down the street. It's also quick and easy to get to unbelievable hiking, skiing and fishing spots.

There are great views both in summer and winter. Summer brings boating! It's fun to see friends heading out for fishing or crabbing on their boats and the cruise ships navigating the water way. Winter brings scenes of falling snow and winter sun on the mountains across the channel.

Then there is the wildlife! It never gets old watching eagles, water fowl, whales, and orcas right out of your windows.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to downtown Juneau and Douglas but away from the crowds with fabulous views of the water and the mountains!

The best rental we've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

The views and the hot tub were AMAZING. The place is so well stocked. Everything we could possibly need was there, and it was all very clean and comfortable. The owners were easy to communicate with. We've stayed at many rental properties, and this was the best we've seen!

Lovely Channel View Suite

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sitting Eagle Guest Suite for one week. The Suite is in a wonderful, quiet location, with a beautiful view of the Channel. It is well-appointed with excellent amenities. The property was immaculate, comfortable, and charming. It was the perfect place to return home to each day after exploring the sites of Juneau and surrounding areas. We will definitely stay again when returning to Juneau!

Peaceful, relaxing home on Douglas Island

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a 10-day visit to Juneau with two friends, we all loved it! We prefer to get groceries and cook most of our own meals, so the very well-equipped kitchen and outdoor grill were great to have. We each had our own sleeping space: queen bed and single Aerobed in the bedroom and a fold-out double bed in the couch (much more comfortable after our host provided a mattress topper on our second day). We made daily use of the hot tub on the deck. The washer/dryer came in very handy after hiking many of the local trails, and we didn't need to pack a lot of extra clothes. The place is very quiet, nicely and simply decorated, and we never once even turned on the TV (with Netflix), preferring instead to just enjoy the views of the mountains and Gastineau Channel that fill the large picture windows in the living room, the ships and small craft going back and forth, and the eagles cruising by and sometimes alighting in the trees. Douglas Island is *the* place to stay when visiting Juneau, quiet and laid-back, free of all the hustle-and-bustle of the downtown area when the cruise ships disgorge their thousands of passengers. A couple nice pubs/restaurants, a nice sandy beach, and hiking trails are in walking distance as well. This was my first visit to Alaska and it won't be my last; and if/when I return to Juneau I will definitely stay here again.

Impressive, comfortable and well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

The view acrossed the Gastineau Channel at Juneau is impressive! The unit was extremely comfortable in every way. Every detail has been addressed. If we needed something such as a cooking implement or measuring cup we found it. It is immediately obvious that Mary has put an incredible amount of thought into every aspect of this wonderful property!
