We have stayed in some very nice VRBO homes, and this is by far the nicest one yet. Just finished up 6 nights and our family loved it. Our three girls (12, 9, and 8) had a great time, they spent hours down at the beach in the tide pools and on the one rainy day we had they hit the fooseball and ping pong tables set up in the garage (you could eat off the garage floor it's that clean).
The owners have done a great job and there isn't one thing this house lacks. Great view, well appointed home, stocked with everything you could ever need, with beds that would make you think you were at the a 5 star hotel. Don't go to the grocery store until you check in, the house is that well stocked with food.
For dinner try Bar Harbor in town for fine dining, for great burgers hit the Marina at Knudsen Cove. Southeast Sea Kayaks does a great job on a day trip out to Misty Fjords Monument and the Zip Line's south of town were a hit with the kids. If you have kids check out the Lumberjack Show in town, they also do a 1 hr log rolling class for kids on Tuesday and Wednsday afternoons for $7 bucks which the girls couldn't get enough of (it can get cold in the pool so wetsuits are a plus for this). If you are an Alaska resident be sure to mention it with all the tour operators as the give significant discounts for Alaskan's.
