About Dan Abts
Dan and Kim have lived in Alaska since 2000 when they were lucky enough to have the Air Force station them in the Great Land. The first thing they did after buying their first home was to get a condo in Girdwood. They love to ski with their 3 children and watch them race in the Alyeska Ski Club. When not skiing they love to spend time in Girdwood, hiking, biking and enjoying outdoors.
Dan Abts purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Dan Abts chose Anchorage
We bought and remodeled this condo to take advantage of the slopeside location, the spectacular views and the unique rooftop balcony. It provides the space and comfort needed for our family and all the ski gear that goes along with having a family of skiers.
What makes this Condo unique
When the weather is nice, you can't find a better spot than the roof top balcony. The views of the surrounding Chugach Mountains will take your breath away! If the weather isn't perfect you will still enjoy keeping warm by one of the fireplaces while gazing out the windows at the mountains. You are steps away from fabulous hiking, biking, skiing, dining and night life, so don't forget to get out and go experience Alaska.

We very much enjoyed our stay! The condominium is in very good condition and clean! We had everything we needed in terms of amenities including the fans (we had some warm weather). This was my first Home Away stay and it was simple with very good directions on locating the condominium and the key access. We loved the close proximity to the mountain and the Bake Shop! The roof-top deck was also a plus to enjoy the fresh mountain air and sunshine. I just wish we could have stayed longer! Next time!
This condo was a fantastic place to stay for our weekend in Girdwood. The place was clean and had everything we needed and then some, including a few rams as the weather was WARM!!! Have to imagine it would be the ideal place to stay in the winter for ski season with perfect views of the resort and a chair lift right out the back door. Not too far a walk from restaurants, the mercantile, and Jack Sprats is right out the side door. Dan and Kim were accommodating and easy to work with and we will definitely look to stay again when we get back to Alaska. Did my pass up on this condo if it’s available.
We loved Girdwood!
We absolutely loved our stay in Girdwood! This property was amazing as were Dan and Kim. The location is perfect within walking distance to restaurants, shops and hikes in the area.
Lovely on the inside
This unit was perfect for my friend and I. We stayed here in October, which is off season, so it was quiet. The home is nicely appointed. Beds are big and super comfortable. No bathroom on the lower level, which did not bother us, but took some getting used to. Full kitchen, great location. Don't let the outside of the building discourage you. The building itself does not reflect the lovely, haven inside.
Glad you enjoyed Girdwood in October. We think it's one of the best times to be in Girdwood with the Fall Colors, and still nice weather for hiking biking and hanging out at the local spots, without the crowds.
We recently stayed at this property and found it a perfect location for our Alaska adventure. It was close enough to Anchorage for biking and sight-seeing/shopping. The drive from the airport was beautiful, easy to catch train in Girdwood to visit Seward, and lovely local restaurants. Dan suggested some activities in the area, several of which we tried and enjoyed. The condo was clean, comfortable, and well furnished. Can't wait return sometime and explore more of this beautiful state.
We agree it's a great spot to make for your home base while exploring AK. Even if you don't go anywhere you are already in the perferct location.
What a treat! We arrived late at night and slept so great in the very comfortable king bed! Opening the shades in the morning to the beautiful view! Coffee on the roof deck...wonderful way to start our trip. Kitchen had supplies, fridge had some basics and nicely decorated! I’d stay again in a heartbeat.
Nice, Glad you had an excellent stay. It's always spectacular to just look out the window or to get out on the balcony. Never get tired of it. Hope you can make it back again...
Girdwood is home to Alyeska Ski Resort and is a destination resort town. You can find adventure every day right in Girdwood. There's world class skiing in the winter and in the summer the number of potential activities escalates exponentially, from extreme down hill mountain biking to bore tide SUP and everything in between. Some of Alaska's Best Dinning experiences can be had in Girdwood. The Seven Glacier's at the top of tram offers 5 star gourmet food and spectacular Mt. Views. The Double Musky is Nationally recognized for it's Cajun cuisine and famous pepper steak. Our favorite place though, is Jack Sprat and it's right next door to the condo building. Within a short drive of Girdwood is Whittier Alaska gateway to Prince William Sound. There you can take epic glacier tours, salmon and halibut charters and even get in the water for SUP or kayaking. Don't forget to take a few hikes while in Girdwood. The Winner Creek trail is a must. The North Face trail is good if you're looking for a climb with a free tram ride back down. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, we will gladly share our secret spots.
