About the property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3 adults)

Mountain side - close to the base and chair lifts this executive style studio condo with room to sleep comfortably up to three adults or family of four with small children, with a bunk bed (1 double bed, 1 single bed, 1 pull out trundle bed) and a comfortable couch, is your perfect rest stop. Snuggle up with family or friends and enjoy the views of the lighted mountain in front of the floor to ceiling brick wood burning fireplace or listen to the bubbling creek just outside your door. Perfect ambiance after a long ski day in the winter or a day of adventure in the summer. Completely refurbished with all new furniture and fixtures.

Alaska is known for its dramatic landscapes and incredible wildlife viewing opportunities and endless adventures! Our condo is centrally located in Girdwood—making us the perfect base camp for your summer or winter adventures. Whether you are traveling to Alaska via cruise, tour group or own your own, staying in Girdwood makes perfect sense.

Summer fun not to miss in or around Girdwood while you visit...

Hike the North Face Trail which starts right from the Alyeska Resort. For the more active, hike the trail up and rest on the way down by catching a complimentary scenic tram ride. For the rest of us, get a ticket for the scenic tram and take the North Face trail down at your own pace. Sea Kayaking in Prince William Sound - Just 25 miles from Alyeska and separated by a 2.5 mile one-way tunnel, Whittier is the gateway to Prince William Sound. Once a popular port of call, and a former military facility, glacier and wildlife cruises and kayaking tours depart from Whittier daily in the summer season. The Alaska Railroad also makes a stop in Whittier. Mix action and adventures with a jet-boat outing on Six Mile. This activity is perfect for families of all ages. Or for more adventure on the river take the raft tour and ride the Class IV & V rapids through the canyons of Six Mile. Take in a glacier and wildlife viewing cruise in Seward, just two hours from Alyeska. A charming coastal community and gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park and the Resurrection Bay, Seward bustles in the summer with a historic downtown. The Alaska Sealife Center is a must-visit. Alaska’s only public aquarium and ocean wildlife rescue center, the Sealife Center allows visitors close encounters with puffins, octopus, sea lions and other sealife.

Take a scenic helicopter ride and truly explore the vastness of the majestic Chugach Mountain Range. A variety of flight-seeing adventures are available, find one that fits your schedule and budget.

Winter adventures should include getting the most out of the mountain – take a lesson with a pro at the Mountain Learning Center. Whether you are new to skiing or snowboarding, or advanced and looking to up your game, the instructors at the Mountain Learning Center can turn just another day on the slopes into extraordinary fun. Dog sled with an authentic Iditarod team and explore the area. The guided tour includes presentation on the history of dog sledding in Alaska while you interact with your musher’s adventures on the trail. Visit the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts and peruse (and purchase!) works from local artists. Learn to ice climb with professional mountaineers and see glaciers and other ice formations up close. Join Chugach Powder Guides for a full day of heli or snow cat skiing in the amazing back country of the Chugach Mountain Range. The expert guides provide back country safety instruction and gear, and knowledge about the terrain, to ensure the best skiing and riding for their guests. Snowmobile through a winter wonderland of snow-filled meadows with endless scenic views. Perfect for kids and adults of all abilities, these snowmobile tours provide a group outing designed with multi-generational families in mind. Or just relax with signature treatment or service at The Spa at Alyeska. You deserve it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherry,



Thank you so much for fitting us in to stay the extra night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo. It is so comfy and clean. After a month in our truck camper traveling through and exploring Alaska, finding your condo gave us a few days of space to relax and regroup for the rest of our travels.



Thanks Again!

Great feel- everything you need in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

The condo was well maintained and everything it promised to be. Cozy yet spacious with comfortable furniture and beds and a great movie selection! The deep tub and adequate supply of hot water made for a relaxing soak after a day on the slopes.

Perfect Location and Exceptional Comfort

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal if you are planning a trip to Aleyska in the winter. It is in view of the Big Bear lift and from the door only a five minute walk to lift 4(Ted Stevens Express) . Also, it is close to countless hiking trails and scenic locations with close proximity to the Seward highway so would be great for summer travel. Girdwood has everything you need there in town and offers a free bus that has a stop about a hundred yards from the condo. The condo was clean and very comfortable with everything you would expect or need for your stay. During my stay the apartment building was very quiet and had a friendly atmosphere. The parking was abundant but with the parking pass there is only one available parking pass. This was no issue for me but if you were bringing additional cars you may need to make other arrangements because it seems like the towing is strictly enforced. Overall I had a great time and will rent again if I revisit.

Perfect

Beds were all very comfortable, plenty of space, and very nice bathroom. 5 minute walk to the mountain was nice. Having a full kitchen was awesome and the place was very clean. Would definitely recommend.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we needed for our ski vacation. Super close to the ski hill and bus stop to take you to town if you need anything. The owner was quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. The place was very clean on arrival and had everything we needed. The beds are memory foam which were a little soft for us, but that's personal preference. There are a few small things that could be repaired, but they didn't affect our stay. Thanks for the great place to stay in for our vacation!

Perfect location and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The location was in walking distance to the slope, restaurants, and the Glacier Valley Transit stop which was so convenient for getting around Girdwood. The unit was cozy and comfortable and had everything needed! Definitely will stay again!

While visiting Girdwood here are some ideas of activities. Ride the scenic tram to the top of Mt. Alyeska and capture the panoramic views of Turnagain Arm, surrounding mountains and “hanging” glaciers. For the active, hike the new North Face Trail to the Upper Tram Terminal and catch a complimentary ride down on the tram. Explore the floral and fauna of North America’s northern most rainforest on a hike on the Winner Creek Trail. Take a trip out to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center just ten minutes south down the Seward highway to see moose, bears, caribou, bison, musk ox and much more! Take a helicopter ride up to a glacier high in the mountains and dog sled with an authentic Iditarod team. See the valley surrounding Alyeska Resort from the skies with a tandem paragliding outing paired with a certified paraglider. Choose from a variety of full-day cruise adventures in Prince William Sound (Whittier) just 15 minutes south of Girdwood or Resurrection Bay (Seward) 2 hours away.
