Why Mary Grogan chose Juneau

We love the area and the views that our house and apartment provide. Also, the convenience is great! Our home is easy to drive into and close to many different activities both in Juneau and Douglas. We can view the 4th of July fireworks from the front window and attend the Douglas 4th festivities with a short walk. Every 4th Sandy Beach is the venue for a fun celebration with many events and a parade. Gold Rush Days are also held there in June. This is a miner/lumberjack competition that we both really enjoy. There is a cafe and pub within 4 blocks and the premier live theatre in Alaska, Perseverance Theatre, is just down the street. It's also quick and easy to get to unbelievable hiking, skiing and fishing spots.

There are great views both in summer and winter. Summer brings boating! It's fun to see friends heading out for fishing or crabbing on their boats and the cruise ships navigating the water way. Winter brings scenes of falling snow and winter sun on the mountains across the channel.

Then there is the wildlife! It never gets old watching eagles, water fowl, whales, and orcas right out of your windows.

What makes this apartment unique

Close to downtown Juneau and Douglas but away from the crowds with fabulous views of the water and the mountains!

Best VRBO we've stayed in. Spectacular views, pristinely clean, perfect location. Miss it already!

  • 5 of 5

Best VRBO if not one of the best places my husband and I have ever stayed, hands down -- and we've traveled the world and have stayed in 4- and 5-star hotels! *Pristinely* clean, beautifully decorated, modern but cozy, perfectly organized, with every amenity you could need including a fully stocked kitchen with pantry items, washer and dryer, a grill, and even "Sitting Eagle Guest Suite" robes (cute touch). The best part, the spectacular views of Mt. Roberts, the Gastineau Channel, downtown Juneau and Mt. Juneau out the huge picture windows, all visible from the couch and from the perfectly situated hot tub on the lovely deck. Eagles flew by and rested in the trees right out front every day...awesome. We watched waterfalls form on the mountains, the fog and tides roll in and out, the cruise ships come and go, and the tram creep up and down the mountain...if we didn't have so many activities to do around Juneau, we could have stayed here all day, every day and never gotten bored! In fact, on one super stormy day, we did just that and didn't feel like we missed out on anything. And the (very clean) outdoor hot tub was such a perk after long, active days. The pictures don't do it justice -- they're accurate, but it's really that much better in person. The owners respected our privacy, and we never felt like we weren't totally alone. Everything was perfect so we didn't need any help while there, but leading up to our stay, Mary was super responsive and kind to answer some of our questions about getting around Juneau. To that point: we are big walkers, so we didn't wind up renting a car and didn't miss one. The public buses were super convenient and $2 a ride, and it was easy and quick to call a taxi for a ride from absolutely anywhere when needed, 24/7. It was our first time in Juneau and Alaska, and being over on Douglas didn't stop us from easily getting to all of our excursions and everything we wanted to see. On a nice day, it's a about a 2+ mile walk into town -- fully paved sidewalk all the way with a pretty view of the channel. It was SO nice to have some distance from all the tourists! Island Pub down the street is delicious, too. We were heartbroken to leave and hope Mary and Thom keep this suite open for guests for years to come so we can return! Thank you, Mary and Thom. We'll never forget our stay here and can't wait to be back in beautiful Juneau!

Charming, spacious, quiet, exceptional functional design and good location!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week in Sitting Eagle;  charming, spacious, quiet, exceptional functional design and good location ... 5-star all the way.  The kitchen has more counter space than in our own home!  Who expects to have a Kitchen Aid mixer and a baby chair, toys and portable crib available;  you will when checking in to this lovely apartment.  We were in town for the first birthday of a nephew and wonderfully surprised to be able to bake the celebration cake and entertain the family for an afternoon to relieve this from the parents.

The hot tub and private garden from which to view Mount Roberts, the coming and going of the cruise ships and lights of downtown is breathtaking! The weather only allowed us to bask in the morning sun in the garden, overlooking the channel with our coffee in hand one day - wish it could have been more!

Mary and Thom keep a meticulously clean apartment, a tailored keyless entry code and a rental/tourism guide which answers every question we may have had. This apartment was THE MOST comfortable and thoughtfully appointed accommodation we've stayed in yet! Being so close to downtown to explore things there, then skip over the bridge to the quiet of the island was a big advantage. A few blocks down the street is The Island Pub - one of our favorite places to eat.

If pushed to identify a down side, it would be the queen size bed when we are used to king ... minor when considering everything else Sitting Eagle offers. We were sorry to have to leave and plan to stay again!

Excellent place to stay while visiting Juneau

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this rental. Very convenient for visiting Juneau and heading out on a great hiking trails. The accommodation is clean, quiet, private, well stocked with conveniences, great views, and a very responsive owner. It far exceeds the description that is provided by the owner. To put this in perspective and to offer a reference point to the reader of this review, I typically only stay in 4 or 5 star accommodations. It is a bit more pricey than other VRBO rentals in Juneau, but it was well worth the daily room rate. If you are a hiker, make sure to take the Perseverance Trail
