Photos and Description of this holiday condo in Girdwood - Alyeska South #201

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 adults)

Mountain side - close to the base and chair lifts this executive style studio condo with room to sleep comfortably up to four adults or family of five with small children with a bunk bed (1 double bed, 1 single bed, 1 pull out trundle bed) and a queen sofa sleeper is your perfect rest stop. Snuggle up with family or friends and enjoy the views of the lighted mountain in front of the floor to ceiling brick wood burning fireplace or listen to the bubbling creek just outside your door. Perfect ambiance after a long ski day in the winter or a day of adventure in the summer. Completely refurbished with all new furniture and fixtures.

Alaska is known for its dramatic landscapes and incredible wildlife viewing opportunities and endless adventures! Our condo is centrally located in Girdwood—making us the perfect base camp for your summer or winter adventures. Whether you are traveling to Alaska via cruise, tour group or own your own, staying in Girdwood makes perfect sense.

Summer fun not to miss in or around Girdwood while you visit...

Hike the North Face Trail which starts right from the Alyeska Resort. For the more active, hike the trail up and rest on the way down by catching a complimentary scenic tram ride. For the rest of us, get a ticket for the scenic tram and take the North Face trail down at your own pace. Sea Kayaking in Prince William Sound - Just 25 miles from Alyeska and separated by a 2.5 mile one-way tunnel, Whittier is the gateway to Prince William Sound. Once a popular port of call, and a former military facility, glacier and wildlife cruises and kayaking tours depart from Whittier daily in the summer season. The Alaska Railroad also makes a stop in Whittier. Mix action and adventures with a jet-boat outing on Six Mile. This activity is perfect for families of all ages. Or for more adventure on the river take the raft tour and ride the Class IV & V rapids through the canyons of Six Mile. Take in a glacier and wildlife viewing cruise in Seward, just two hours from Alyeska. A charming coastal community and gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park and the Resurrection Bay, Seward bustles in the summer with a historic downtown. The Alaska Sealife Center is a must-visit. Alaska’s only public aquarium and ocean wildlife rescue center, the Sealife Center allows visitors close encounters with puffins, octopus, sea lions and other sealife.

Take a scenic helicopter ride and truly explore the vastness of the majestic Chugach Mountain Range. A variety of flight-seeing adventures are available, find one that fits your schedule and budget.

Winter adventures should include getting the most out of the mountain – take a lesson with a pro at the Mountain Learning Center. Whether you are new to skiing or snowboarding, or advanced and looking to up your game, the instructors at the Mountain Learning Center can turn just another day on the slopes into extraordinary fun. Dog sled with an authentic Iditarod team and explore the area. The guided tour includes presentation on the history of dog sledding in Alaska while you interact with your musher’s adventures on the trail. Visit the Girdwood Center for Visual Arts and peruse (and purchase!) works from local artists. Learn to ice climb with professional mountaineers and see glaciers and other ice formations up close. Join Chugach Powder Guides for a full day of heli or snow cat skiing in the amazing back country of the Chugach Mountain Range. The expert guides provide back country safety instruction and gear, and knowledge about the terrain, to ensure the best skiing and riding for their guests. Snowmobile through a winter wonderland of snow-filled meadows with endless scenic views. Perfect for kids and adults of all abilities, these snowmobile tours provide a group outing designed with multi-generational families in mind. Or just relax with signature treatment or service at The Spa at Alyeska. You deserve it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherry,



Thank you so much for fitting us in to stay the extra night. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your condo. It is so comfy and clean. After a month in our truck camper traveling through and exploring Alaska, finding your condo gave us a few days of space to relax and regroup for the rest of our travels.



Thanks Again!

I was in girdwood for a wedding and this was perfect for what I needed which was my own private space separate from the rest of the wedding party. I did have a issue with being able to access room but I called the manager and he got it sorted out for me very quickly. Room was comfortable and clean. Some of the blankets could use replacing due to a sour smell that usually won't come out with washing. I found some blankets in the closet though that smelled clean so It wasn't a big deal. The hallway to the complex was very musty which is common for girdwood but this unit did not have that same musty smell. The room smelled clean. Wifi is pretty slow. Overall I really liked the place and would definitely use it again if needed.

Great location and nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Alaska and we would have spent more time here now having been there. Girdwood is a great location for Seward Hwy, Portgage, Anchorage and the Winner Creek Trail was awesome! The property was very nice. The kitchen was well appointed and the Jacuzzi tub was much needed.

Great vacation location

  • 5 of 5

Booked a week here as our base for part of our Alaska vacation. The location was wonderful - quiet, uncrowded, and close to amenities. We loved having the kitchen with all of the basics for making meals, the video collection for some down time, and the laundry facility for getting our clothes back in order.

Everything was comfortable, super clean and exactly as described; and we had no problem getting settled in. Billy was a wonderful host and quick to answer all of our questions and concerns. We would love to return someday and would most definitely recommend a stay here to a friend.

Quiet and Clean, but smelly

  • 3 of 5

This condo was very well kept. It was clean with up scale appliances and furniture. The Jacuzzi tub was a big plus! Loved having the fireplace (this was a big deciding factor, for me, when I chose my place to stay). However, the fireplace was not cleaned out or stocked with firewood. The poorest character, was that the whole building smelled lake stale mildew, and the beds smelled like chemicals. I had to keep the sliding glass door open a little, to keep the smell down. The listing was very accurate about this condo and it's location and attractions. Although very clean, and I did enjoy my stay, I could not stay here again, due to sensitivity to odors.

While visiting Girdwood here are some ideas of activities. Ride the scenic tram to the top of Mt. Alyeska and capture the panoramic views of Turnagain Arm, surrounding mountains and “hanging” glaciers. For the active, hike the new North Face Trail to the Upper Tram Terminal and catch a complimentary ride down on the tram. Explore the floral and fauna of North America’s northern most rainforest on a hike on the Winner Creek Trail. Take a trip out to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center just ten minutes south down the Seward highway to see moose, bears, caribou, bison, musk ox and much more! Take a helicopter ride up to a glacier high in the mountains and dog sled with an authentic Iditarod team. See the valley surrounding Alyeska Resort from the skies with a tandem paragliding outing paired with a certified paraglider. Choose from a variety of full-day cruise adventures in Prince William Sound (Whittier) just 15 minutes south of Girdwood or Resurrection Bay (Seward) 2 hours away.
