Girdwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located in beautiful Girdwood, Alaska, The Alyeska House is the perfect place from which to base your Alaskan adventure.

Do you want to see and experience the 'real' Alaska, without hordes of people accompanying your every move? Are you interested in hiking, biking, fishing, kayaking, dog sledding and/or white water rafting? Do you want to set your own itinerary, based around things that you and your companions are interested in? If you answered yes to any of these questions then The Alyeska House in Girdwood is just what you've been looking for.

Arguably the finest rental property in Girdwood, The Alyeska House has everything you'd expect from a top end vacation rental. Two gas fireplaces, a hot tub on the front balcony, an enormous commercial styled kitchen, a master bed and bathroom complete with cable television and a walk in steam shower set The Vail House apart from other Girdwood properties.

In addition to the amenities offered at The Alyeska House, we also offer assistance in planning and booking your vacation. We know arranging a trip to Alaska is no small undertaking and are ready and willing to help. Our reservation manager, Luke, has years of experience living and working throughout south central Alaska. He can help with all facets of your vacation planning and is happy to offer friendly advice on what can and can't be missed on your trip.

Girdwood's location near Anchorage and very near the Kenai Peninsula make it a premium destination from which to base your Alaskan adventure. Whittier, the gateway to Prince William Sound, is located a mere 20 miles south of Girdwood and offers great day cruises with lots of glaciers, guided kayak trips and kayak rentals, water taxis and fishing charters. Within a hours drive of Girdwood you can find flight seeing trips (heli and fixed wing), fishing charters, amazing hiking and biking trails, class 5 white water, world class kayaking and awesome wildlife viewing. The world renowned Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center is just a fifteen minute drive from the Alyeska House and offers up close views of brown and black bears, musk oxen, moose, caribou, and elk, among others.

The Alyeska House is located in a quiet neighborhood near the base of Mount Alyeska. An undeveloped meadow sits across Vail Drive to the south, and views of Max's and Alyeska Mountains can be seen to the north. Contact us today for more information on the house or planning your Alaskan vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"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.

Girdwood is an adventurers dream come true. Nowhere else in the country or world does there exist such awe inspiring scenery and access to outdoor adventure. Located in the heart of Alaska's famed Chugach Mountain Range, Girdwood is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts 12 months of the year. 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.

PERFECT PLACE FOR LARGE GROUP FOR GROOMS OUT OF TOWN FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
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!

I WOULD ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND THIS HOUSE TO ANYONE!

  • 5 of 5
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.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
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.

AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
our family is from Michigan and this house was a great get away. The nights were spent on the balcony with beautiful views. My son thoroughly enjoyed the loft and was able to look out over a mountain. We hiked Alyeska and saw bears right on the trail!

LOVED THE HOUSE, LOVED ALASKA

  • 5 of 5
We had never been to Alaska before. Coming from Hawaii, we are used to beautiful scenery and interesting wildlife, but Alaska blew us away. We say 2 moose walking at the airport when we landed and that was just the beginning. We had originally planned to stay at the Alyeska House 3 nights, but Luke was able to stretch our stay to 5 nights with very little notice. We loved Girdwood - so many neat trails, waterfalls and glaciers to explore. The house itself was very nice - modern but very comfortable. My family especially enjoyed the back yard. It took some doing to get used to the late late late sunshine, but we we able to adjust and the black out blinds at the house helped. We'd recommend this house for anyone wanting to spend some time at a home away from home. Thanks so much and we hope you come visit us on the Big Island!
