The long summer days provide almost 18 full hours of bright sunshine during and around Summer Solstice, giving visitors ample opportunity to enjoy Alaska's wonders.
The Alyeska House is located in a quiet part of Girdwood with a large back yard and spectacular views of meadows and the valley's surrounding mountains. Several restaurants, small shops and The Alyeska Resort are within a 5 minute drive of the house.
"Thanks so much to Luke for helping us during our time in Girdwood. We were planning our first trip to Alaska and found his advice to be honest and extremely helpful. If you've never been to Alaska, we would recommend booking your first trip today! There's really no other place like it in the country or the whole world. We couldn't have been more happy with our decision to stay at the vail house. It was perfect for us and we would certainly come back if possible in the future. The quiet neighborhood has lots of wildlife - our first night there we saw two moose and a porcupine perusing the neighborhood. Thanks again and we hope to return in the future." Roger and Gerry.
It was a wonderful stay in December for our family in the Alyeska House. We all came from the lower 48 and Italy for our son's wedding in December. The house was well equipped and the accommodations were first class! The kitchen was a gathering place during meal preparations and was spacious enough for all 10 of us. The house is in a great location and a very quiet neighborhood! We enjoyed the views of the ski area. Thank you, Jodi and Tom for opening your beautiful home to us.
The Alyeska house made our week in Girdwood even more pleasurable. It was perfect for our entire family, was within walking distance of just about everything we wanted to do, and had a floor plan that allowed us to interact together and also have some quiet private time when needed. I would highly recommend this lovely home to anyone wanting above average accomodations in a beautiful private setting. We had an outstanding stay. Thanks to Jodi and Tom for allowing us to share there beautiful home.
We have visited Girdwood at least 6 times before this visit. This visit was special as our son was getting married in Girdwood and we had family coming up from the lower 48. We also needed a place to host the rehearsal dinner. The kitchen is great - lots of dishes, glasses, etc. The caterers were impressed. The sleeping arrangements were wonderful for 3 couples and 4 individuals. The house is beautiful, the views are breathtaking from the living room. We had a couple of small issues, but the owner was on them immediately. The owner is very easy to work with - we would definitely recommend this house! Thanks, Jody!
This property was easy to rent, fully stocked and the owners easy to contact with questions. The kitchen was large and well equipped. The hot tub was a bonus and required little attention. I would not hesitate to rent this property again.
Wonderful! We were so pleased with the space within the home, the colors, decor, placement of the rooms and quite honestly, it was stocked well. We mini vacation in Girdwood each year and are in high hopes to come back to this home next year. Thank you Jody for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home.
