About Bob Giroux

Owners have lived in Alaska for over 40 years and are a semi-retired couple who travel expensively in the 'Lower 48' but continue to call Alaska 'home'. During the summer they enjoy spending time on the Kenai River fishing for Alaska salmon. During the fall they enjoy the Adirondacks in NY where they have a small cabin on the Ausable River. The winters are spent mainly in Florida avoiding the cold snowy weather they have enjoyed all those years. They maintain a small apartment over the garage at said property for when they are in Anchorage.

A GREAT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place that made a great vacation even better. We had everything we needed including a visit by 3 moose. The only things I wished for were bedroom TVs and a WiFi booster. I highly recommend this home and its owner.

Awesome Anchorage Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This place was incredible. If you are planning on staying in Anchorage, this is definitely the place to stay. The house is beautiful and EXACTLY how it looks in the pictures. The house was very clean and set back off the road in a secluded setting where you did not even know you had houses around you. We did day trips around Alaska and this was the perfect central area. I stay in many VRBO rentals and this ranks in the top of the class. Bob was great to deal with and was very helpful on places to eat and see.

Wedding/vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was for my son's wedding in Eagle River which was great & the reception was held at the Anchorage Museum. This house is elegant & beautifully arranged & fully equipped with everything from spices to toiletries! The bedrooms & bathrooms throughout the home were plenty for our family. We had 9 adults & couple of kids staying here. We had family from IN and IA that joined us for the wedding too. We had family & friends to join us for dinner & still had room. The arrangement of wildlife displayed in this place made us feel at home. Especially the bear because we are from The Bear Clan. My brother hunts a lot & enjoyed your caribou displayed. Everyone is giving "thumbs up" & will rent this lovely home again next time, if a large home is needed, on our next vacation. Thank you so much for making our stay comfortable!

Sincerely,

The Romancito Family

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 just spent 10 wonderful days at this rental. The home was spacious, clean, very pretty and situated in a beautiful setting. We lacked for nothing. Everyone had a comfy bed and plenty of space to spread out and play. We had a moose walk across our backyard one morning. Our host, Bob, gave us our space but was most accommodating when we needed something and very kind to all of family. We were close enough to the airport to make the back and forth runs easy, (our son is a pilot in Anchorage) but still feel nestled in the country. Thank you Bob for sharing your beautiful home with us. We take home very fond memories of our stay. We would definitely rent here again!

awesome home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week in June of 2014. It was an amazing stay. My daughter exclaimed as we drove up " OMG we have rented a mansion" HAHA. She proceed to take pics and post them for everyone to be envious.

The home was spacious and beautiful. We had 4 groups and this was much better then a hotel stay.

The location was great, easy to get to, selcuded.

We would definately stay here again and would recommend it for others.

The only draw back for us was we had lots of relatives in Anchorage that had little ones. We decided it was too stressful to have them come over as there are lots of breakable things.

Comfortable & roomy!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect pick for our family! So much room had plenty of towels & every room was comfortable! So recommend this house for your family! What a great home to have a family reunion, you have basically 3 livingrooms lotsa space & the atmosphere in the home is homey, private, and just very neat. Love all the Alaskan art and the décor all over, its a must see to appreciate. Big important thing is that it was very well kept up and very clean! Loved this place!!! Fit our family of 6 very well! But would fit a family of 12 easily! Nice, nice, nice!
