Always a wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at this property many times. It is our go-to place in Girdwood until we build our own mountainside retreat - which won't be nearly as extravagant! We love this property and we are never ready to leave. I am sure we will be back again soon!!!

Amazing slice of paradise in Alaska

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed at this beautiful modern home twice and can't wait to return again. Everything from the design of the home to it's location is perfect. Situated perfectly between Anchorage and the Kenai Peninsula you will have no shortage of things to do. The home itself is nestled in a beautiful forrest that gives the sense of privacy and peace yet still a short drive to the ski resort and restaurants. Inside you will find all the high end amenities available today and modern art throughout. Having traveled the world extensively I can unequivocally say this is our favorite location to visit.

It is the most stellar place imaginable

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we drove up and saw the land and the structure, I knew it would be perfection. The architecture, the art, the furnishings, and all of the extra comforts made this a dazzling (and comfortable) vacation stay. I actually called the architect to see if he will design something for our property in Seward. My oldest actually said,: "if a man ever asks you guys for my hand in marriage, tell him to forego the diamond engagement ring and instead get me a steam shower like the one here." I cannot emphasize enough what a gem this home is. Truly is Nirvana North. Thank you for opening it up to our family.

Stunning house and property...

  • 5 of 5

Three generations gathered for 6 days of Alyeska skiing. Multiple living areas, handsomely furnished, a high end kitchen and superb bathrooms, provided total comfort. Though Girdwood has lots of restaurants, we stayed in. Views within and without the home are more expansive, and beautiful, than in the pictures. The 'mudroom' off the garage is a showstopper! For those guests with young children the staircase is the main entertainment! You always know where they are. Sarah, the manager, is local and professional. We will come back to this luxury property.

Wonderful Family Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed over Christmas holiday and it was the perfect setting for our family. We really enjoyed the low key and private setting the house gave our family. The best part were all the separate rooms it provided for different activities. Two Living areas and a loft setting which was beautiful to sit at in the morning or evening. Provided plenty of room. Kitchen provided everything we needed. My brother did point out if our family grew in couples just the two bedroom might be challenging if there were more couples wanting privacy but for the beautiful house and setting it provided there's a trade off and most folks are flexible in that regard. Thank You Sarah for sharing your wonderful home; we had a lovely time.....we are already talking about booking for next Dec :-)

We love this home and the beautiful setting. Amenities and architecture make it a special escape.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time renting this home. The open plan and the private setting makes you not even want to leave. You can see Turnagain Arm through the trees and hear nearby Virgin Falls just outside your door. The architecture of the home is one of a kind and very flexible for a family. Sara makes everything super easy. We will definitely stay here next time we visit Girdwood.

Car: necessary

Girdwood is a year-round ski resort community in Alaska. It lies in a valley in the Chugach Mountains near the end of the Turnagain Arm of Cook Inlet, 36 miles (61 km) southeast of Anchorage proper.

It is surrounded by seven permanent glaciers. Summer activities include hiking, fishing , rafting and mountain biking but Girdwood is best known for winter skiing and snowboarding at Alyeska Resort on Mount Alyeska. Girdwood has the northernmost rain forest in the world. Many visiters choose to base their Alaskan vacation out of Girdwood because of it's small unique mountain side community.
