About Lisa May

My husband and I and our children love being in the beautiful outdoors of Alaska and we are constantly seeking new ways to enjoy Alaska. Our favorite things to do, are down hill and X-country ski, hike, mountain bike, raft the rivers of Alaska, camp and sea kayak.

Lisa May purchased this condo in 2008

Why Lisa May chose Alaska

My husband and I moved to Alaska many years ago. We have always had a great love of both downhill and X-country skiing. While raising our children in this beautiful state, we decided to purchase a ski condo so that we could pass onto the children our love of skiing. Alyeska/Girdwood is a truly beautiful, family friendly, outdoor adventure town!

What makes this condo unique

We love the friendly neighbors in our condo building, the proximity of the condo to the lifts, perfect for both adults and children, a truly ski in ski out location. We love that within just a few hundred feet we have access to some wonderful restaurants and a nearby grill/bar with live music. No need to drive anywhere! Coffee shop and bake shop are next door. We love taking our dog outside the condo to go for a x-country ski or walk on the lighted trail to the Alyeska Hotel and the surrounding trails.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for letting us enjoy your condo for the week!. We have really loved being able to ski in/ski out, just wish there had been more snow this year!

Love it!

Had a great time and close to the Sitzmark and Chairlift. Spacious and family friendly. Two full bathrooms after a day of Skiing comes in handy! Would rent again.

Clean, comfortable and convenient

Wonderful place to stay. Super easy if you have little ones. A little noisy but that comes with being in a condo. Loved our time there!

Spacious & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The condo had everything we needed and was clean. It is right in the middle of Girdwood and very short walk to restaurants The place is actually bigger than I expected and the bed and couches were very comfortable. We came for a wedding and stayed a few extra days to explore Whittier & Seward. We had a great time and would recommend this property!

Great Summertime location for seeing Alaska

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a terrific 5-day stay at this condo in mid-July. Everything was clean and neat. Lisa made sure we checked in OK and was there if we needed her (we didn't as everything was as described.) Girdwood is a great location to be away from the hustle/bustle of Anchorage but close enough if you want to get to some good Anchorage restaurants. Lots of trails in Girdwood and things to do/see are an easy drive. The condo is very relaxing after a day of hikes/sightseeing and I sincerely recommend it. Well-stocked with everything you would need in the kitchen. We would go back tomorrow if we could.

Great location, very clean and roomy.Good Value

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here from May 29th and checked out June 2, 2016. For our purpose, this location was perfect, easy drive from Anchorage(40 min), Portage Glacier and Whittier(no more than 30 min) and Seward (1.5 hrs) The unit is very spacious for the 4 of us, the extra outside sink was handy, the bathrooms are good size, the kitchen was roomy for 1 cook. You have all you'll need to cook. We stopped by Sams and Target before driving in and picked up some groceries and bathroom items. Lisa provided us with enough essentials that we just ended up leaving some supplies. Staying here definitely saved us some food money that we used for activities.to

If you get tired of the daylight, the curtains block it out effectively. There were so much to do around here that we hardly turned on the tv.

Whittier, it was nice to say that you drove the tunnel but unless you plan on hiking to have a good look of Portage Glacier, this was a quick in and out for us.

Portage Glacier Visitor area, visit before and after your hike to a glacier (I forgot name), Its the easiest hike and at least 1 hiur RT. Definitely worth the time.

Portage glacier cruise for 1 hr suited our family since we didn't want to do a long one.

Seward-we did one of the wild life cruise with a stop at the Fox island and buffet lunch. We thought this was a great cruise, probabaly because we watched a whale for about 30 min just blowing and turning. Again since my family does not like being out on a boat for a long time, the stop at Fox island for lunch worked out well. All you can eat salmon,prime rib, salad, very fresh and delicious steam veg and delicious (from scratch)mashed potatoes.

Back to this unit, we highly recommend this place for location, value, cleanliness and Lisa always responded quickly.Wish we had time to explore Girdwood. We will definitely go back and visit Alaska driving rather than cruising.
