Tom arrived in Juneau in 1977 and Debbie arrived three years later. They completed their new home along with the Alaska Northern Sands Suite and the Ocean View Room on the Auke Bay beach in August of 2005.
We were extremely fortunate to be able to build our home and the Alaska Northern Sands vacation rental on the Auke Bay beach. It is unique because of its spectacular views, proximate access to the Juneau International Airport, the Alaska Marine Highway ferry terminal, and shopping as well as the relative quite of the surrounding neighborhood.
Be sure to bring your binoculars for the best viewing of wildlife and the spectacular scenery! From your accommodations, the gazebo or on the beach you just might see, Eagles – regularly year round, right in front of your Suite; Salmon – regularly jumping in July & August; Orcas – occasionally in summer, usually in the distance; Humpback whales – occasionally in summer, sometimes as close as 100 yards off shore. And although rarely, we have even seen them breach in front of the house; Otters – occasionally year round; Seals – occasionally year round; Sea Lions - often in winter; Ducks – regularly in fall and winter; Deer – occasionally year round; Blue Herons– occasionally in summer. Enjoy the soothing sounds of the AKNS waterfall and pond from the Suite or the veranda. Walk down to the beach for some Alaska beachcombing. Or just relax and enjoy the view and the sounds of the ocean waves from our oceanfront gazebo.
Flightseeing tours, 10 minute drive to view the Mendenhall Glacier, with black bear viewing typically in August and early September.
