Spacious getaway for family and friends in the heart of Girdwood
We have lived in Alaska for the past 27 years and fell in love with Girdwood the first time we visited this beautiful, scenic town many years ago. We lived in Germany for 3 years and Girdwood brings back wonderful memories of southern Germany. Spending time in Girdwood is a great way to renew our love of the mountains, and we thoroughly enjoy hiking and fishing in the summer, and skiing in the winter. We love our home in Girdwood so much and hope you will enjoy it too!
S.G. purchased this House in 2015
Why S.G. chose Girdwood
We instantly fell in love with this scenic town of 2,000 people on the edge of the Chugach Mountains with its spectacular outdoor activity options including hiking, skiing, fishing, and more.

Great house and laid out well.
This will be a two part review, one for the owners and second for the property.
I will not recommend this property to anybody. The owners were easy to contact at first, but when the “issue” arose, not so much so. Upon checkin Shawn was still cleaning the house, and advised us it will be a few before he was done. After he finished he did a walk through of the house, and advised us about the “landmines” in the yard which was from the neighborhood dogs. The yard hard not been maintained, and come to find out either had the hot tub. After one use the Hot tub was filthy.... and obviously not cleaned. The rule book is massive and includes no noise after 10PM. The property is so close to other homes, there is no privacy at all, the windows have a great view of other houses, any noise travels greatly. 5 days after check out the owners made false claims about or stay, and tried to scam us out of $200 from our security deposit. One reason was from a “noise complaint” from a neighbor early Saturday night/ Sunday morning. The cause of this noise complaint came from us unloading our wedding stuff into the house after our wedding in Girdwood, oh and also a car alarm going off. These houses are so close together that our voices asking for help in the driveway caused this complaint. The second complaint was a false statement about finding beer cans around the hot tub, which was completely false and unfounded. The third complaint was about garbage bags in the garage, to which were placed where asked. VRBO looked at these claims, and verified them to be false. I will not recommend this place to anybody, and will urge caution about booking this place if there will be any noise, or larger groups. Luckily we were able to recover the $200 that we almost got scammed out of.
Clean and modern
Our family and guest each enjoyed their own bedroom and had a very comfortable stay. Shawn met us even though we arrived late and provided insights and guidance on the house and details on the use of appliances, hot tub etc.. A good location. This is in a neighborhood with relatively small lots, so be aware that it is not remote or private. Nicely appointed kitchen with most everything we could want for cooking. Viking stove nice appliances. Windows opened and closed easily. Pool table was nice and we relaxed in the bright family room with the Alyeksa mountain streaming thru the wide windows. Easy to recommend.
