Mixed feelings about Girdwood Chalet
Submitted: July 9, 2012
Stayed: June 2012
My family and I (6 people) stayed at the Girdwood Chalet for three nights in June 2012. We received lots of helpful information about Girdwood and Anchorage from the owner prior to our arrival. It seemed like we had made a very wise choice until we walked upstairs. We have several tall people in our family and they could not stand upright in the upstairs shower. Also the loft bedroom was cramped and my brother-in-law and nephew moved the bed out of the cramped space and slept in the loft bed the three nights of our stay. Upon leaving AK, we received emails and a video from the owner saying we had broken the loft bed beyond repair and we would not receive our deposit back. We were unaware of any damage to the bed when we left the property. It is too bad this happened because we enjoyed our stayed although the property was not the best fit for us. This was our first experience with VRBO and at this time, I am apprehensive about using VRBO in the future.
Owner's Response: Our home is a 2 bedroom chalet, with a sleeping loft. We do not make any representations the loft area is a bedroom. The loft has a queen size bed, side table, and a large chair and comfortably sleeps 2 adults without any need for furniture to be moved. As mentioned in the listing, the upstairs has a small bathroom with a sink, toilet, and small shower. The downstairs bathroom is more suitable for taller guests, as the ceiling of the upstairs bathroom is angled. We are more than happy to answer any specific questions or provide additional photos of our home if requested. We look forward to welcoming you to Alaska!
