I want to thank-you as well for the wonderful time we were able to share in your house! Everything was there and in great condition. The room with the kitchen in it absolutely fit the bill for me! I really needed the time on my own time to time! Everybody was impressed that your house was as lovely as it looked in the photos! Thank - you so very much for your kindness.

Alaska trip

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this house in July. WOW! It's amazing. The house it self is beautiful, and there are some fantastic views as well. Mark and Shoman are wonderful to work with. We had the trip of a lifetime, and this house was a great part of it. It's super convenient to the mountains and the highway, and also nice and quiet. This house has everything you will need for a wonderful time. We would love to come back some time.

Fabulous weekend w/great steamroom!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place, with a lot of nice touches like beatiful teas and dishware. A steam after a day skiing was the family favourite. The owner was very friendly, but not at all intrusive.

fabulous ski weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5


My family and I had a marvelous weekend staying in your lovely "asian motif" suite. It was elegant, cozy and well stocked. After skiing all day we really enjoyed the steam bath and comfortable living room. Thank you for your flexibility and for being so friendly. We will recommend this to our friends .

All the best,

Wonderful Host, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I spent part of our time at this house in Girdwood during our recent Alaska vacation. Mark and Shoman were wonderful hosts during our stay.

This house was spacious for our family of 9 with ample room to spare. The location was great as it was centrally located for many day trips including Anchorage, Seward, Portage Glacier and Whittier. The picturisque Alyeska Ski resort as well as the Seward Highway are minutes away from this home as well.

Mark and Shoman have taken a lot of effort to immaculately decorate the house in an Asian theme. The traditional wooden Japanese tub, Steam bath and various curios around the house added to the wonderful experience.

While Girdwood has a functioning town center, our host rightfully recommended that we stock up our groceries in Anchorage. I would definitely come back here for our next Alaska trip. In the meantime, Mark and Shoman are welcome to our home in Texas as well.

Nice hostess, tasteful and comfortable house, beautiful views of the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We have rented the lodge and both adjacent apartments for a small wedding for three days. The house was very clean, kitchen well stocked, delicious variety of teas for guests use, steam shower and traditional wooden Japanese bath tub was a great way to relax after the wedding. Owners were very accommodating, friendly and accessible by phone during our stay there.

We have all had great times, this house worth every penny!

Fantastic location and incredible hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with 3 other couples, traveled to Girdwood and stayed for a week. Even weeks before we arrived Shoman and Mark were always available to answer all our questions. The location was fantastic in relation to all the activities we wanted to do in Anchorage and the entire Kenai peninsula. The home was very very comfortable for all 8 of us, and the steam shower and Japanese soaking tub were a huge hit with everyone after a long day of fun. From our windows we were able to see Mount Alyeska and all the hang gliders floating down. Shoman was so wonderful in making us feel welcome 'like family', and her stories and knowledge of the area added to our enjoyment. Most of our breakfasts were enjoyed on the deck surrounded by huge mountains and greenery. We ate most dinners out and all were large portions and tasted incredible. You must go to the Double Musky Inn for dinner but get there real early because they fill up quickly. I would recommend this house to anyone---from a couple to a large group. Thanks again Shoman and Mark for making our stay even more memorable.
