Cozy Ski Condo at Base of Mt. Alyeska in Girdwood, Alaska
About John Fisher
We purchased this condo a couple of years ago as a way for our family to enjoy the ski slopes during the cold Alaska winters. In the summer time we are out busy fishing and hunting so we love to let other folk use our cozy condo while it is not in use.
John Fisher purchased this Condo in 2016

Fantastic location, cozy getaway, a welcoming town
I cannot say enough things about this place! Cozy, clean, and stocked with kitchen amenities for the independent traveler. We were a couple who got married while staying in Girdwood and we're absolutely pleased with the condo and it's privacy. Check-in and check-out was a breeze, and the locals were super helpful and nice with giving us advice on where to eat, where to shop, and where to just have an outdoor adventure! Would absolutely stay here again!
Great little condo, perfect location
This is a great little condo! We stayed here for a week and were very pleased with the condition of the condo and the way it was stocked with kitchen supplies. We were able to prepare many of our own meals, which saved on dining out expenses. The location is perfect for exploring Girdwood as well as making day trips to Seward and up to Anchorage and beyond. This was our base of operations for day excursions hiking, sea kayaking, glacier climbing, and more. Highly recommended!
every thing is here
great host,location,comfortable,clean.would stay again.went for wedding 4 day stay great bargain
Exactly as advertised
We really enjoyed our stay at John's property. The kitchen was well stocked and the bed was comfortable. The location was beautiful - right at the base of the mountain. While there was a slightly unpleasant smell in the hallway of the building, the owner has no control over that and the condo itself was perfect for our needs. We would stay there again.
Centrally located easy to get around
The condo is located smack dab in the middle of access to all things Alyeska. It's a short hike to the Alyeska resort, but it's also within a minute or two walk to many other ski/bike lifts. If you are a skier/snow boarder or biker it's a perfect location for access to the mountain. Most mountain stuff is walkable and if it's not, the shuttle stop is right there to drive you around.
The condo is a studio, but it's pretty spacious. They have places to rest your skis and poles and even enough space for a bike.
We arent actually bikers or skiers though. We did some hiking and many restaurants are within walking distance too. It was a good central location for us to bounce between Anchorage without staying in Anchorage, and made the trip to Seward a shorter day trip drive.
The condo was clean and the bed was comfortable (which is important for me since I have a bad back, I'm including this for fellow back pain suffers). They had a lot of kitchenware (although we didn't use the kitchen half as much as we thought we might once we discovered The Picnic Club restaurant... which is really tasty).
The only con I really have is the building is kind of old and I'm sure it gets a lot of wear and tear from skii/biking equipment coming in and out, but the hall going to the condo made me feel like I was in one of my old apartment or dorm buildings and initially didn't look very inviting and smelled like whatever everyone in the building was cooking. The condo also had a smell to it couldn't place my finger on, which may have been a cleaner or something. I'm real sensitive to smell, though; I don't think my husband was as bothered by it.
The condo itself was good. John is very nice and was very helpful. He left a ton of brochures and a binder with house rules (that are pretty reasonable) which made it easy to look up stuff in the area.
I'd stay here again :)
Amber was a great guest and is welcome back at anytime! It really is a pleasure to deal with good people who are great to work with. I highly recommend Amber for any future HomeAway bookings.
