About Lisa May

My husband and I and our children love being in the beautiful outdoors of Alaska and we are constantly seeking new ways to enjoy Alaska. Our favorite things to do, are down hill and X-country ski, hike, mountain bike, raft the rivers of Alaska, camp and sea kayak.

Lisa May purchased this condo in 2008

Why Lisa May chose Alaska

My husband and I moved to Alaska many years ago. We have always had a great love of both downhill and X-country skiing. While raising our children in this beautiful state, we decided to purchase a ski condo so that we could pass onto the children our love of skiing. Alyeska/Girdwood is a truly beautiful, family friendly, outdoor adventure town!

What makes this condo unique

We love the friendly neighbors in our condo building, the proximity of the condo to the lifts, perfect for both adults and children, a truly ski in ski out location. We love that within just a few hundred feet we have access to some wonderful restaurants and a nearby grill/bar with live music. No need to drive anywhere! Coffee shop and bake shop are next door. We love taking our dog outside the condo to go for a x-country ski or walk on the lighted trail to the Alyeska Hotel and the surrounding trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us enjoy your condo for the week!. We have really loved being able to ski in/ski out, just wish there had been more snow this year!

Great location, very clean and roomy.Good Value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from May 29th and checked out June 2, 2016. For our purpose, this location was perfect, easy drive from Anchorage(40 min), Portage Glacier and Whittier(no more than 30 min) and Seward (1.5 hrs) The unit is very spacious for the 4 of us, the extra outside sink was handy, the bathrooms are good size, the kitchen was roomy for 1 cook. You have all you'll need to cook. We stopped by Sams and Target before driving in and picked up some groceries and bathroom items. Lisa provided us with enough essentials that we just ended up leaving some supplies. Staying here definitely saved us some food money that we used for activities.to

If you get tired of the daylight, the curtains block it out effectively. There were so much to do around here that we hardly turned on the tv.

Whittier, it was nice to say that you drove the tunnel but unless you plan on hiking to have a good look of Portage Glacier, this was a quick in and out for us.

Portage Glacier Visitor area, visit before and after your hike to a glacier (I forgot name), Its the easiest hike and at least 1 hiur RT. Definitely worth the time.

Portage glacier cruise for 1 hr suited our family since we didn't want to do a long one.

Seward-we did one of the wild life cruise with a stop at the Fox island and buffet lunch. We thought this was a great cruise, probabaly because we watched a whale for about 30 min just blowing and turning. Again since my family does not like being out on a boat for a long time, the stop at Fox island for lunch worked out well. All you can eat salmon,prime rib, salad, very fresh and delicious steam veg and delicious (from scratch)mashed potatoes.

Back to this unit, we highly recommend this place for location, value, cleanliness and Lisa always responded quickly.Wish we had time to explore Girdwood. We will definitely go back and visit Alaska driving rather than cruising.

Fantastic Condo in Girdwood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Lisa's condo for four nights and it was wonderful! The decor and the amenities were very nice and the beds were amazingly comfortable.

The wi-fi was easy to connect to and fast, the couch was super cozy, and having the full kitchen was so handy. I REALLY loved the centralized location!

The only drawback was that they were doing a lot of construction right in front of the condo and started up every morning about 7 am, but that (of course) is totally out of the homeowner's hands. I only mention it because if you are booking soon, you might want to throw a pair of earplugs into your bag if you plan on sleeping in.

I would highly recommend this condo for anyone's stay in Girdwood!

Excellent location, very nice inside, has everything you think you would ever need.

  • 4 of 5

It's a great condo, ski-in ski-out(when there's snow). Plenty of room for 4 people and all of your gear. Nice amenities and very clean.

The only reason it's not 5 stars -- the neighbors. The upstairs tenants sounded like they wore their ski boots all day and night. SUPER LOUD, to the point that things were shaking in our condo. Also, it smelled like the neighbors across the hall stored mass amounts of curry in the walls. The entire 4 days, it was almost unbearably strong in the hallway. Luckily the inside of the condo didn't smell like that.

Otherwise, the condo was EXCELLENT.

Great accommodations for Skiing at Alyeska Resort

  • 5 of 5

This place is great! Our family of 4, including a 3 year old and 5 year old, stayed here for 4 days and and a relaxing and enjoyable time. The listing was as described. Two bedrooms with one queen in one room, and a queen an futon in another room, plus a large couch provided plenty of space to relax. The building a bit older, but this condo has been updated nicely with a stocked kitchen with plenty of good cooking equipment. It is always nice to be able to use leftover pantry items and other food or cleaning items from previous renters. Of course you always end up buying more of these goods than you can use so it is good to be able to use up what is left and avoid buying more than you need.

The condo was clean, and the owner was very helpful when we arrived a couple hours earlier than check in time. I would recommend this place to friends and family, and would love to stay again if we find ourselves in the area again. We had a great two days on the slopes, and our kids got their first experience skiing as well.
