As you enter this unique, historic home you will discover a level of gracious, artisan living that encourages creativity and relaxation. Original art, spacious rooms and oversized windows invite you to enjoy your own unique approach to vacation life. Enjoy dramatic views that take in the Juneau-Douglas Channel, Sandy Beach and the quaint towns of Douglas and Juneau. This 2200 square foot home was built in 1914 and has been carefully renovated into a spacious, modern home, we call the Fleek House.
Hand finished original Douglas Fir floors hint at times past and offer a rich golden hue underfoot throughout the main living areas. The Fleek House features in-floor heat which is gentle on the body and reduces dust in the home. The home is framed with clear fir timbers and features hard wood flooring throughout, so people with allergies can more easily enjoy the home.
The Fleek House offers 3 bedrooms each with one bed that can accommodate one or two adults for a total of up to 6 people. The home also has an upstairs toy/book nook area that is open to the hallway and does not have a door. This nook has a loveseat that opens into a twin mattress. Two floor sleeping mats can also be placed into this toy/book nook but it makes for a tight fit. We require an additional guest fee of $10 per night for more than 7 guests and we limit the home's total occupancy to 10. We have three blow up beds on site for extra guests.
A hand built entertainment center houses a large TV and wifi router in the living room. Comfy furniture and warm throws invite you to snuggle in and enjoy the view, or catch a Netflix show on TV. (Apple TV is available with a Fleek House Netflix account.)
The kitchen offers granite counters, custom maple cabinets and an eat-in bar with seating for four. The appliances are stainless steel and include a double electric oven and a gas range top, a dishwasher, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer. Gather meal inspiration from the cookbook collection and prepare an Alaskan meal fit for kings and queens. A custom built steel and wood dining table can seat up to 12 guests with an additional 4 at the bar and 2 at the breakfast table.
The Fleek House has a full laundry/mud room with high efficiency washer and dryer on the main floor.
Relax and unwind in the oversized master suite on the main floor. A spacious bathroom features a walk-in tiled shower, double vanities, a separate commode room and a walk-in closet.
Climb the stairs to discover 2 bedrooms, one with a queen sized bed and one with a full sized bed. There is also a bonus /toy nook with a loveseat that opens into a twin bed. A full bathroom with a tub is available to upstairs guests.
The Fleek House is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the small town of Douglas. You can walk from the house to a really great dining and cocktail experience at the Island Pub which is only 3 blocks away. Or enjoy one of the many award-winning Alaskan Brewery beers at Louie's Douglas Inn Bar, also only 3 blocks away. If you are a walker, this home offers several easy walking loops from .25 mile to over 3 miles in length. In fact, historic downtown Juneau is only three miles away if you really want to stretch your legs!
There are two off-street parking spaces in the driveway off of E Street for the Fleek House.
We are not able to offer in-home smoking options. For those able to smoke outside and properly dispose of cigarette butts, this home might still offer a lovely accommodation.
