A SLOPE SIDE APARTMENT BY ALYESKA RESORT. PRIVATE, AFFORDABLE

Girdwood Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

A Slope Side Apartment is an economical alternative to Hotels, condos and B&B's. This private apartment has all the comforts and amenities to make yourself at home in an Alaskan mountain setting. With a separate entrance on the first floor, this unit has one bedroom with a queen and single bed and the couch/futon pulls out to another double bed in the living room. There is a washer and dryer in the unit and soap is provided. It is in a perfect location to walk to the restaurants and shops nearby, yet the street is very quiet and away from any traffic. A biking/walking trail is located two minutes from your door.

A Slope Side Apartment is located in Girdwood, just 35 miles south of Anchorage (50 mins. from Anchorage International Airport). Travelling down on the very scenic Seward Highway, you will enjoy specatular scenery and arrive to the friendly feeling of this small town in the forest. This area is considered the northern most expanse of the Pacific temperate rain forest. The lush mountains in the summer receive more than 600 inches of snow in the winter. Hanging glaciers surround the valley, connecting to the massive ice feilds of Prince William Sound. Bears, moose, dall sheep, mountain goats, eagles and other wildife is often seen in the area and right in town. Girdwood's small community is 'Alaska' and well worth the drive out of Anchorage.

Ken & Thalia moved to Alaska in 1989 from the New England area. Ken has been running an eco-adventure guiding service called Wilkinson Expeditions. He's a trained photographer and naturalist and has guided private groups in Alaska and other locations since 1995.Thalia is an elementary school art teacher and runs a summer art camp for kids in Girdwood We both like gardening, there is a green house on location and together we built the wood fired sauna in the back yard.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

We fell in love with Alaska. We bought the house in Girdwood because of the outstanding scenery and recreational opportunities nearby. It is not far from Anchorage and the drive is one of the most scenic drives in the country. We see alot of wildlife in the area and back yard and the photo opportunities are endless. Girdwood is a small town surrounded by hundreds of square miles of National and State Forest. With less than 1500 people when we moved here, now approximately 2200, it is very friendly with a strong community spirit. We both like winter and skiing and this small town offers the Alyeska Ski Resort, many cross country trails and lots of snow.

A slope side apartment is a lovely convenient place to stay near the mountain. We went up to see a band playing the weekend. It is super close to the Sitz/slopes...which is a plus because you can walk/ski everywhere! The owners are super friendly. There are plenty of places to walk the dogs.
Plus: dog friendly
Negative: Truly only sleeps 5 (at the most...unless you bring an air mattress!)

This apartment was perfect for our stay, and we will consider it again in the future! Ken was easy to work with in setting up the reservation, getting us directions, and giving us extra hints about the weather, our stay, etc. I loved how close to the resort this apartment is (about two blocks walking) and plenty of parking. Also, it has a great 'mud room' to hang all your wet outdoor clothes and boots, and not have to look at it again till morning. As much as we love staying at the hotel, this is a better option b/c of the washer/dryer, mudroom, and more private setting to our Alyeska getaway! Thanks Ken!

The door was unlocked and the key was on the table. We turned up the heat a bit and felt lucky to find such a well equipped reasonable rental near the center of Alyeska. It was very well stocked with supplies---coffee, tea, paper supplies, first aid, books, brochures for local attractions and it seemed like we were in a private wood though there really were other dwellings nearby. Several friends stopped by and it was easy to find with the distinctive puffin on the front. We would definitely rent again if we were in the area.
