Juneau Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2 - 4

Relax and enjoy Juneau in our Sitting Eagle Guest Suite, a renovated, open concept apartment located on Douglas Island across the bridge from Juneau. The guest suite features captivating views of Mount Roberts and Gastineau Channel, with its own semi-private garden with a deck and hot tub just right for enjoying our Alaskan scenery. Large windows fill the apartment with light and provide interesting views as the cruise ships, float planes, and wild life come and go.

Alaska's capital city is packed with outdoor activities for the adventurous and the not so adventurous. Zip lines, whale watching, fishing, hiking, boating, float plane rides, helicopter sight seeing, kayaking, river rafting - the list goes on and on, all only minutes away from our comfortable apartment.

We are conveniently located near the small town of Douglas, so that in a few minutes you can be walking on the beach or stopping by the Pub for a tasty bite or a pint of award winning Alaskan beer. Our location makes it easy to enjoy Douglas Island or downtown Juneau after your day of adventure and fun in the Last Frontier. It also provides a great place to rest and relax.

Sitting Eagle Guest Suite is a great place to stay whether you're in Juneau for business or pleasure. The suite has all the comforts of home along with the views of Alaska. A well equipped kitchen, spa like bath with heated floor, and comfortable furnishings help you enjoy your stay in Juneau. A full size washer and dryer are also provided, so pack light.

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!

Beautiful home away from home in Juneau, AK

  • 5 of 5

We recently attended our niece's wedding in Juneau and stayed at this property for five nights. The property was wonderful, beautifully appointed with everything we could possibly need! It was very clean and quiet and we enjoyed the hot tub overlooking the channel almost every night. We wanted to have a barbecue on the sunny deck but ran out of time, so we'll save that for our next trip. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a home away from home on their adventures!

Perfect for our Needs

  • 5 of 5

Sitting Eagle Guest Suite on Douglas Island was perfect for our trip. Our daughter lives in Juneau and the guest suite was roomy enough that we were able to entertain her and her friends during our week-long stay. The kitchen was equipped as well as cooking at home, the washer and dryer was definitely a plus and plenty of towels were provided for our entire stay, as well as additional beach towels for the spa or the beach. Everything was immaculately clean, the property was easy to find and we loved being able to sit outside for coffee in the morning or dinner in the evening. Being able to walk to the Island Pub for pizza and salad was also nice. Mary and Thom were available if there was anything we needed. Since our focus was spending time with our daughter, we took several hikes as her work schedule allowed. We didn't really do any of the usual tourist things as this was not our first trip. While in Juneau, we visited the Hangar several times, Flight Deck for Alaskan Raspberry Wheat and people watching, and had a lovely fine dining experience at SALT our last night. But our best evening may have been grilling steaks in the backyard with our daughter and her friends. I think we have found our new Home Away from Home!!

We had a beautiful stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed for an entire week here and there are no complaints! The guest suite was super clean and very comfortable with all modern appliances. The kitchen was well stocked and we had plenty of bathroom and cleaning supplies for the week. We cooked pretty much every night and enjoyed every minute of relaxing at the guest suite. The jacuzzi was such a nice treat for our end of the day adventures. It was our home away from home and we felt so comfortable here. The view from the guest suite is amazing in itself. There were times in the morning when my boyfriend and I just sat with our coffee and looked out admiring the beauty of the mountains. Lots of eagles and ravens passing by! I can honestly say that this is by far the best VRBO I have ever booked. Mary and her husband take pride in their little suite and you can clearly see that. We are already talking about visiting again and to whoever wants to come visit and check out Juneau we will definitely be recommending this place to stay. The location is really nice because Douglas sits away from the downtown area so its nice and quiet and the drive to town is so close. This was a nice couple's getaway for sure! We are looking forward to coming back again soon!

We rented this cute 1 bedroom for visiting family. It was super clean and very nicely decorated. For us it was a convenient location for our family activities happening in downtown Douglas. The view is spectacular and it's close to several hiking spots. Thanks!

Wonderfully Relaxing & Perfectly Prepared!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific place to stay, with everything you'll need for a relaxing stay! The hot tub and heated bathroom tiles were a hit with our family! Cannot beat the amazing mountain view on a nice Juneau day! While stepping out of the hot tub, I even got to watch a porcupine waddle by!
