About Makiko Boyd
I grew up in Niigata, Japan. It is the place in Japan where skiing was introduced in 1911. My father was the ski instructor, and I started skiing when I was only 3 years old. The Hotel Alyeska was built and operated by Japanese company, I knew the name "ALYESKA", but never thought I would live in Alaska until I met my husband John. He grew up in Dublin, Ireland, and he never skied before, but he loved beautiful snowy Girdwood and found a house potential as a vacation rental.
Makiko Boyd purchased this House in 1997
Why Makiko Boyd chose Girdwood
My dream since high school was to own a B&B one day. We saw the open house sign 1997 on our drive to the hotel, and just took a look. The property had such special atmosphere with the sound of the creek so relaxing and calming! Build as a duplex, the two units are very private. They are connected by a breezeway and Hot tub area. We thought this property was the perfect place for our vacation home and for maybe running the B&B one day when we have more time.
What makes this House unique
The lovely sound of the creek is so relaxing- it creates a peaceful setting for your getaway. The ski slope, restaurant and hotel are all walking distance. There is also a soccer field across the street, that turns into a cross-country trail in the winter time. Great location!! Girdwood is the only resort for world class skiing in Alaska, and Glacier Creek Lodge is the perfect getaway!!

Wow! This place is perfect! The property is so beautiful and the perfect place to relax between Alaskan adventures! I would highly recommend the property to any friends and family visiting Alaska!
Versatile housing, great location
Great location, versatile housing for a group of families.
this was the perfect place for the gathering of multiple couples. the two properties connected by the breezeway, hot tub, and sauna was an amazing getaway for all! it allowed us to join together and have our own space simultaneously! the accommodations were clean and comfortable and cozy. directions and instructions allowed for ease of equipment and amenities. close and convenient to all that's offered in girdwood. (the only reason this isn't a 6****** star is due to the inconvenience and lack of more bathrooms, and the dated ovens/ranges...which resulted in a prime rib early eat! nothing we couldn't deal with or handle. just something for the owners to consider for future upgrades.) that being said, the owner was available via email/text and quick to respond when there was a question or a need. deposit was refunded quickly! we will book again no doubt about it! thanks for a perfect ring into the new year of 2019!!!
Beautiful setting with great views all around!
Great space for a big family gathering for the holidays. The two separate units let everyone have their space. The connecting hot tub and sauna room with skylights were a real treat. We’d definitely stay here again if we have a big group.
Beautiful place - just a little short on bathrooms
A group of 8 of us stayed at the combined properties and we found it to be excellent. Clean, spacious, well stocked, and amazing location. The only issue I would have with this great property is that there are only two showers and 3 toilets between the two places so if you have a lot of people I could see this getting tight but manageable. Otherwise we were blown away by this amazing property!
Good space for large group
Owner was good to communicate - quick responses.
Water View: We are on the water! Only one property like this in the Girdwood area.
