About Christine and Brian

We are the Kleinhenz family. We love living in Juneau and enjoying the outdoors. Hiking and fishing as a family are our favorite activities. We hope your stay with us will be comfortable and enjoyable. Please contact us if you have any questions. We would love to talk with you.

Christine and Brian purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Christine and Brian chose Juneau

This property provides some of the best views in town. The ocean is steps from the apartment and you can see downtown and the mountains along with the ever changing tides from the apartment. The house is close to downtown and lots of great hikes. It's the perfect combination of being away from it all and near it all at once.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is surrounded by wonderful gardens and a deck available for relaxing and enjoying the views. We have a fireplace to keep you warm at night and a sauna steps from the ocean at high tide. A bonfire pit with wood is ready for your use as well at the high tide mark. We use flowers from the yard to decorate the apartment and you will enjoy the local art on the walls.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I have owned and operated B&B's in Colorado for twenty years and I must commend Christine on the accommodations. She has though of everything to make our stay absolutely wonderful! Her decorating style is beautiful and so very cozy!"

Juneau Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at Tide Watcher... the location is fabulous... watching the tide roll in and out, eagles and gulls fishing, salmon jumping......... the apartment was really comfortable for three adults, and everything we needed was there, including a very friendly host with loaner fishing poles and a fish filet knife ! We tried really hard to pack the puppy in our luggage, but alas she would not fit...what a sweetie she is !

Owner's Response: Kathleen, thank you for the wonderful review. I'm so glad the space worked so well for you three. I wish I could have met you before you left! Brian told me that he had some really nice visits and that you were able to catch some fish from the yard. Good. So fun. And I hear Kaya puppy really liked you too. You will have to look us up again the next time you plan your Alaskan getaway. Sincerely, Christine

Beauty and comfort

  • 4 of 5

The setting is simply gorgeous. The views and access to the waterfront is like your own private park. The owners are upstairs and very helpful and responsive but not at all intrusive. Thoughtful touches included fresh bouquets from the property and a little basket of instant oatmeal and vitamin c packets. The kitchen was stocked so that we easily made our own halibut and salmon dinner. Four adults slept comfortably, the Murphy bed was left open for our 5 night stay and there was plenty of room. The bedroom was quiet and the master bed very comfortable. Black-out shade was used, with the night never really getting dark for our late June stay. I left off one star because access down the flight of outdoor stairs is an issue for older folks, like my Mom. Could use another hand rail. That said, my Mom LOVED this place! Car is a must. The drive to Juneau is minutes, and it was nice to be a bit away. Do not hesitate to rent this apartment for Juneau and surrounding area sightseeing or just relaxing.

Tide watcher vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome stay at your apartment. The views were amazing. Such a pretty setting The apartment was very well equipped and exceptionally clean. Your family is so nice and easy to work with. Thank you for making it available for people to rent. The only little suggestion would be for a hand towel holder closer to the bathroom sink but that's just a personal preference. Thanks again!! (Your puppy is adorable)

Juneau get away

  • 5 of 5

Wow!!!! What an amazing view! Cozy and comfortable updated vacation rental. We chose to get away from the hotels and motels, and definitely did not regret that choice. Everything we could have asked for in a place, plus comfortable indoor and outdoor space.

Tidewatcher Rental

  • 5 of 5

The views from the bedroom and front room are spectacular. Bonfires on the beach. Watching the Northern Lights while laying in bed. Nothing more fun then getting in a hot sauna after a days adventure around Juneau. We had such an amazing time during our stay. The Kleinhenz's are such a wonderful family. We felt right at home. The apartment is cute and clean with everything a person needs.

We love Tidewatcher!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Tidewatcher, and we couldn't have been happier! Christine and Brian and family are fabulous hosts and friends!! The apartment is spacious, cozy, and beautifully appointed… The view is amazing… And, the kitchen has everything you need from utensils to cook a full meal, to a basket of snacks. Our family of four stayed here quite comfortably… Our children would have happily stayed there forever! ;) I have, and will continue to recommend Tidewatcher to anyone i know who is visiting Juneau! Thank you, Christine and Brian, for making us feel at home while away from home!! :)
