A great get away location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable. A perfect location for us as we day-tripped within the area. Jaci was a breeze to work with and we loved the area. Girdwood is a fun, funky little town.

Most Excellent Girdwood Condo!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property to stay at for a skiing vacation in Girdwood. Clean, secure, easy check-in and out, walking distance to lifts, and well appointed. Save money buying groceries in Anchorage - you have a full kitchen to cook in including a crock pot. Walk back for lunch each day if you want to. Great size for a single or couple with a kid but I would not try and put 4 people in there. It is a little exposed meaning if you have the blinds up or are enjoying the deck anyone walking or driving by will be able to see into the unit; not a big deal for me but maybe for some people they would prefer more privacy. I will likely book this property again.

Great Place to Stay in Girdwood

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and well-supplied studio condo in Girdwood. It really has it all: great location with easy access to shops, well-supplied (even provides hand cream, shampoo and conditioner, spices in the kitchen, etc.). All products are top notch quality (no mini unheard of products!). The unit is well-kept and in A-1 shape on arrival. The entry to the unit provided a little confusion for us initially (the entry will not work until check-in time and it doesn't allow for daylight savings time--meaning your entry on daylight saving time is an hour later than specified in the agreeement), but the owner was available online and on a cell phone to help us through the process. I would certainly recommend renting this unit. It was a great experience!

Owner's Response: So happy you enjoyed your stay and you folks were great guests! Yes, the day light savings time can be a head scratcher even though this was explained in the emailed entry instructions it is easily misunderstood, I even forgot until we talked through it (Spring forward). Thanks again!

Ski Condo That Works in the Summer Too

  • 5 of 5

For a bucket list trip you hope everything comes together. That starts with finding the right place to stay. And we did that with this Girdwood condo. In a convenient location, close to Anchorage but nicely away from the beaten path, it was an ideal base for our many planned day trips up and down the peninsula. The condo was adequately sized for the two of us and had a simple, homey feel. We ate a lot of meals in and were appreciative of the well equipped kitchen. Had a bit of road construction in the area during our visit, but where isn't that going on these days. Biggest challenge was figuring out how to navigate the locking devices on the dumpsters. Kept the bears out, but us too. Thanks to Jaci who was gracious in helping make our stay comfortable. Love to return again some day.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! I also noticed the bear warning sign on the garbage dumpster after your stay and had to ask for help from a tourist to get the lid open the lever was so little maybe 1/2" x 3" and hard to see in the front middle just beneath the lid/bar, I kept trying to pull the lever on the left side which was meant to hold the lid open.
