GIRDWOOD COZY OASIS CLOSE TO LIFTS

Girdwood Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 adults)

Mountain side - close to the base and chair lifts this executive style studio condo with room to sleep comfortably up to four adults or family of five with small children with a bunk bed (1 double bed, 1 single bed, 1 pull out trundle bed) and a queen sofa sleeper is your perfect rest stop. Snuggle up with family or friends and enjoy the views of the lighted mountain in front of the floor to ceiling brick wood burning fireplace or listen to the bubbling creek just outside your door. Perfect ambiance after a long ski day in the winter or a day of adventure in the summer. Completely refurbished with all new furniture and fixtures.

Alaska is known for its dramatic landscapes and incredible wildlife viewing opportunities and endless adventures! Our condo is centrally located in Girdwood—making us the perfect base camp for your summer or winter adventures. Whether you are traveling to Alaska via cruise, tour group or own your own, staying in Girdwood makes perfect sense.

Summer fun not to miss in or around Girdwood while you visit...

Hike the North Face Trail which starts right from the Alyeska Resort. For the more active, hike the trail up and rest on the way down by catching a complimentary scenic tram ride. For the rest of us, get a ticket for the scenic tram and take the North Face trail down at your own pace. Sea Kayaking in Prince William Sound - Just 25 miles from Alyeska and separated by a 2.5 mile one-way tunnel, Whittier is the gateway to Prince William Sound. Once a popular port of call, and a former military facility, glacier and wildlife cruises and kayaking tours depart from Whittier daily in the summer season. The Alaska Railroad also makes a stop in Whittier. Mix action and adventures with a jet-boat outing on Six Mile. This activity is perfect for families of all ages. Or for more adventure on the river take the raft tour and ride the Class IV & V rapids through the canyons of Six Mile. Take in a glacier and wildlife viewing cruise in Seward, just two hours from Alyeska. A charming coastal community and gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park and the Resurrection Bay, Seward bustles in the summer with a historic downtown. The Alaska Sealife Center is a must-visit. Alaska’s only public aquarium and ocean wildlife rescue center, the Sealife Center allows visitors close encounters with puffins, octopus, sea lions and other sealife.

Take a scenic helicopter ride and truly explore the vastness of the majestic Chugach Mountain Range. A variety of flight-seeing adventures are available, find one that fits your schedule and budget.

Winter adventures should include getting the most out of the mountain – take a lesson with a pro at the Mountain Learning Center. Whether you are new to skiing or snowboarding, or advanced and looking to up your game, the instructors at the Mountain Learning Center can turn just another day on the slopes into extraordinary fun. Dog sled with an authentic Iditarod team and explore the area. The guided tour includes presentation on the history of dog sledding in Alaska while you interact with your musher’s adventures on the trail. Visit the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts and peruse (and purchase!) works from local artists. Learn to ice climb with professional mountaineers and see glaciers and other ice formations up close. Join Chugach Powder Guides for a full day of heli or snow cat skiing in the amazing back country of the Chugach Mountain Range. The expert guides provide back country safety instruction and gear, and knowledge about the terrain, to ensure the best skiing and riding for their guests. Snowmobile through a winter wonderland of snow-filled meadows with endless scenic views. Perfect for kids and adults of all abilities, these snowmobile tours provide a group outing designed with multi-generational families in mind. Or just relax with signature treatment or service at The Spa at Alyeska. You deserve it!

Sherry,



Thank you so much for fitting us in to stay the extra night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo. It is so comfy and clean. After a month in our truck camper traveling through and exploring Alaska, finding your condo gave us a few days of space to relax and regroup for the rest of our travels.



Thanks Again!

title says it all-cozy oasis

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at Girdwood. Owners were very quick to respond to our request and provided excellent directions to the property. Outside of building is a little worn from the weather but once inside the condo was superb, very clean and anything one could want was available. Full kitchen, fireplace, nice bath and a cozy, comfortable bed. Be sure not to bump your head on the lower bunk! Looks exactly as the photos describe. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable accommodation. Laundry just down the hall and at $1 a load, a bargain. Be sure to ride the tram up Mt Alyeska, views are amazing. Numerous hiking areas throughout. Also take the short drive to Whittier thru the 2 mi tunnel built in WWII , the 26 glacier tour and also make a short drive to Seward and the wildlife conservation center along the Seward highway.

Cozy stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a couple days of rain/ drizzle but we still could sit on the small deck watch clouds and rain pass by. This place makes a good home base for trips to the local trails during the summer months. Great area to stay in the summer and we are sure a winter stay would great with the lift close by.

Cozy condo

This condo is warm and cozy. Description says 2 baths but only has one. In a great location for easy walks to Alyeska resort, lifts, and park. We loved the bakery and Jack Spratts restaurant. Both are right up the street. Our family would rent this cozy condo again in the future.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I checked in late Monday evening and there was a small slip up, however Sherry (the owner) was more than fair when checking us in. She was extremely nice and went out of her way to help us. After that, things were great! The condo is very nice, with everything you could need, as if it were your own home. The tempurpedic mattress on the bottom bunk felt amazing after a long day of hiking, and the bathroom was a very good size, with a nice jetted tub. This was a great place to stay and the location was great as well. All within walking distance. We didn't want to leave, but plan on being back next year, as this was the best vacation either of us had been on!

Great find!

Owner was very communicative and made my stay as easy as if it were my own place. Condo was very charming and tub has jets so it was quite the bonus after hiking around all day. Walking distance to restaurants and a short drive from anything in Girdwood. Will definitely stay here again.

Great communication from the owners. They gave us all the information we needed and more. Everything was clean and as described. The kitchen and bathroom were very nice and updated. The mattress was super comfy too! It’s within walking distance of the Alyeska resort/ hiking trails and some great food spots. Great place to stay if visiting Girdwood, Anchorage, or Seward. Couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks!!
