Overview

About the property

One Bedroom, One Bath Sleeps family of four, 1 Block From Alyeska Resort

Spectacular space, comfortable decor with art from local Alaskan artists. One bedroom with a king size bed, one bath, couch pulls out into a queen sleeper and a day bed provided.

Comfortable for a family with two children.

The condo is only a short walk to skiing, mountain biking or hiking. No need to find parking, and on a busy day on the mountain its usually a shorter walk to the lift than from the resort general parking lot. View of Max's mountain and ski trails while relaxing from the couch or sitting on the deck. Condo is fully equipped, with gas fireplace, internet, cable, 52" plasma TV, Blu-Ray disc player, new appliances, microwave, pots and pans, dish wear, bake wear, coffee pot, crock pot, toaster, blender and all the utensils for a complete kitchen. Also includes a jacuzzi tub and 6 person sauna, heated floors in bath, kitchen & entry. Washer and dryer provided in this unit to keep packing light for your trip. The condo is a ground floor unit of a 4 unit building. Parking for two cars. Spacious private deck with bistro table and chairs for summer morning coffee or just relaxing in the evening with a cool drink after a day's adventure.

Truly, Girdwood is a spectacular, friendly laid back community with local artist and award winning chef's for some unique local dinning experiences.

About Dee Murphy

We are Dee & Sean Murphy and we purchased and renovated the condo in early 2014. We live in Anchorage and love Girdwood for a nice, quiet getaway during all seasons.

Dee Murphy purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dee Murphy chose Alaska

Within walking distance to the mountain, resturants and shops. Recently remodeled. View of the ski slopes from the living room.

Local hikes right from the condo and lots of other trails with in a short driving distance. The drive to Girdwood is on scenic byway that has incredible views of the Turnagain arm of the Cook Inlet on one side. On the other side, towering mountains and cliffs that on most days you can spot Mt. Sheep climbing about.

What makes this condo unique

Space is very cozy and furnished so that you feel right at home when you arrive. Fully equipped kitchen with all that you would need for a gourmet meal or just tossing something in the crockpot before a day of outdoor adventures. In floor heat in the kitchen and bathroom to keep your toes warm and also in the entryway to help dry out gear for your next outdoor adventure. Tastefully decorated with local art. Complete with W/D in this unit, so need to pack heavy!

Cozy & Quiet

  • 5 of 5

Cozy condo centrally located in Girdwood and perfect for exploring Portage Glacier and Whittier. Place is small but perfect for 2. We lived the electric fireplace. Kitchen is fully equipped with everything needed for meal prep. Bed was very comfortable. Nice place for a romantic getaway.

LOVED OUR STAY!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy we rented from Dee for our wedding in Girdwood! The condo was absolutely perfect, it was VERY clean (making me a happy bride), they were prompt with their communication, and overall easy to work with- receiving directions, code to get in, etc etc. I can not recommend this place enough! Thanks for the amazing stay!!

Wonderful - Relaxing - A perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

WYSIWYG fits perfectly here. What You See Is What You Get. AND MORE! Everything that you could need is here. Full kitchen stocked with all the utensils, pans, plates etc. Just stop at the grocery on the way in but if you forgot something, the mercantile in town has what you need.

Great restaurants in town. The views are spectacular and the public transportation up the hill and down is free. This transport takes you to some local trail heads as well as the lodge up the hill.

From the fireplace (gas) in the corner to the big screen cable ready TV the living room is extremely comfortable. The bath has a great tub/shower jacuzzi. AND the water pressure is huge. There is also a steam room though we never used it.

My wife and would come back to this home away from home in a heartbeat.

Thanks to Dee and Sean for being so accommodating to us.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so glad that you and your wife enjoyed your stay. Our goal is to make everyone feel like they want for nothing at our condo and that they will love being there as much as we do. Cheers!
