About Lisa May

My husband and I and our children love being in the beautiful outdoors of Alaska and we are constantly seeking new ways to enjoy Alaska. Our favorite things to do, are down hill and X-country ski, hike, mountain bike, raft the rivers of Alaska, camp and sea kayak.

Lisa May purchased this condo in 2008

Why Lisa May chose Girdwood

My husband and I moved to Alaska many years ago. We have always had a great love of both downhill and X-country skiing. While raising our children in this beautiful state, we decided to purchase a ski condo so that we could pass onto the children our love of skiing. Alyeska/Girdwood is a truly beautiful, family friendly, outdoor adventure town!

What makes this condo unique

We love the friendly neighbors in our condo building, the proximity of the condo to the lifts, perfect for both adults and children, a truly ski in ski out location. We love that within just a few hundred feet we have access to some wonderful restaurants and a nearby grill/bar with live music. No need to drive anywhere! Coffee shop and bake shop are next door. We love taking our dog outside the condo to go for a x-country ski or walk on the lighted trail to the Alyeska Hotel and the surrounding trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us enjoy your condo for the week!. We have really loved being able to ski in/ski out, just wish there had been more snow this year!

Great Location with kids

  • 4 of 5

Excellent location that is why we have stayed here two years in a row. Condo is in desperate need of an update through out. We bought a new skillet since the same old warped skillet was still there from the previous year. The condo is very clean and the linens always smell very nice and fresh

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear another guest loves our location on the mountain! As far as the comment that the condo is in desperate need of an update through-out: We recently purchased the stainless steel oven and dishwasher, a new Cuisinart coffee-maker and a 7 speed Oster blender, along with 1.5 year old furnishings through out our condo, including couch, beds, mattresses, futon and carpet that is fresh looking and very clean and only 3 years old. We have the best housekeeper ever and she keeps the place clean and tidy! If we were to update the cabinets in the kitchen and redo counter tops this cost would substantially increase the amount we would have to charge our guests. By not putting in new cabinetry, counter tops we make it more affordable to stay at our condo. As far as the pans go: you can find the pans we purchased in the fall 2014 located underneath the oven in a drawer. Three cooking pans of a variety of sizes, plus a large Dutch oven. Perhaps the housekeeper moves it around or another guest, but when I checked on the condo after it was cleaned, everything was in place. We always give a nice discount to our returning guests!

Summer Fun at Alyeska

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent four days in this nice Girdwood condo in August of 2014. We arrived at the end of the day, after a ten hour wildlife cruise in Seward. Lots to do here during the summer. We hiked, biked, took an additional Glacier cruise in Whittier- just 45 minutes away- and just relaxed, watching hang gliders drift down from the mountain tops to the valley below. Fantastic scenery everywhere. I imagine it is a perfect location for skiing in the winter, with lifts right outside the door. Decent restaurants and a medium sized general store downtown (walking distance) for times when we ate in. The kitchen was well equipped and the entire place was spotless. The flexible floor plan allows groups or families to sub-divide this condo into two halves with privacy between both sides- although it was not necessarry for us to choose this option. An excellent getaway to a beautiful ski resort... during the middle of the summer!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Didn't have to use our car all weekend. Ski hill & great restaurants right there in walking distance. Owner was friendly and quick to respond to questions. Place had everything we needed. Not the most updated condo (the price reflects that) but clean & comfortable. I prefer a good rate over granite and hardwoods. Did have a nice flat screen and wifi. Hope to stay there again in the future.

Girdwood for the skiing

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, convenient, safe, clean and does what its says on the tin.

When it snows you walk out the door onto skis.

When its time to go down town you walk 100 yards and take the shuttle

If you have a car you park by the entrance to the condos

Ski hire is 200 yards away

Ski tickets are 300 yards away

Apres ski cam be 100 yards away

Never had such a helpful owner in 40 years of travel

Can't help for the summer but this location is a secret to keep from British travellers; its too good to share.

and the apartment is comfortable, clean, warm and well established. This accommodation is what you make of it. Don't get the idea its 5 star, its a home from home and that's better.

Its so good you don't even mind watching US television !

Great Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our start to the holidays here. This place is in just the right location. Our sons spent time on slopes, right outside the door. My husband and I enjoyed the cross country ski trails near by. Restaurants are right outside the door as well, although we ate most meals in.

The unit is spacious and we found everything we needed in the well-stocked kitchen. The Wi-fi and flat screen TV were certainly icing on the cake. We kicked back and relaxed at night playing games that we had brought and watching movies. We then realized the owner also stocked games and movies. Nice touch! The owner was responsive to our questions when we first arrived, and that made all the difference as well.

Thank you for the great accommodations!

April Powder at Alyeska!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time in your ski-in ski-out condo at Alyeska. The unit had more than enough space for a family of four (with two teenage boys!). We cooked every night in the kitchen, which had everything we needed. And we had fresh powder to enjoy by day, despite it being mid-April. We'd love to stay there again in the future!
