Spacious private deck with bistro table and chairs for summer morning coffee or just relaxing in the evening with a cool drink after a day's adventure. Grill also provided for BBQ's or grilling the day's catch from one of the near by salmon steams located within a 15 min scenic drive north or south of Girdwood.

About Dee Murphy

We are Dee & Sean Murphy and we purchased and renovated the condo in early 2014. We live in Anchorage and love Girdwood for a nice, quiet getaway during all seasons.

Dee Murphy purchased this condo in 2014

Why Dee Murphy chose Alaska

Within walking distance to the mountain, resturants and shops. Recently remodeled. View of the ski slopes from the living room.

Local hikes right from the condo and lots of other trails with in a short driving distance. The drive to Girdwood is on scenic byway that has incredible views of the Turnagain arm of the Cook Inlet on one side. On the other side, towering mountains and cliffs that on most days you can spot Mt. Sheep climbing about.

What makes this condo unique

Space is very cozy and has been recently remodeled and furnished so that you feel right at home when you arrive. Fully equipped kitchen with all that you would need for a gourmet meal or just tossing something in the crockpot before a day of outdoor adventures. In floor heat in the kitchen and bathroom to keep your toes warm and also in the entryway to help dry out gear for your next outdoor adventure. Tastefully decorated with local art. Complete with W/D in this unit, so need to pack heavy!

Perfect for our spring break family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed for a great spring break family vacation! We could cook great meals with the fully outfitted kitchen, we were able to do laundry, the kids enjoyed the jacuzzi tub, the tv (we don't have one at home) and cozy fireplace, and the proximity to skiing at Alyeska was perfect- an easy walk, even carrying our gear. I loved the library collection and coffee! Clean and lovely place and we enjoyed the stay very much!

Fantastic, well appointed condo.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, clean, well appointed VRBO within walking distance of the base of Alyeska. Dee included all the extras one could hope for when traveling, truly making this a home away from home. To me, it's the little things, like the welcoming bottle of wine, the availability of spices, tea, hot chocolate and sugar in the cupboard, and a few granola bars welcoming me after a long day of travel, that make this place shine. These extra touches made this the perfect place to land in Girdwood. The condo is just as it is advertised, with a very comfortable king sized bed, great bedding, and a bonus, the sauna off the bathroom. Everything was clean, quiet and cozy. I hope to stay here every time I am lucky enough to return to Girdwood. Thank you Dee and Sean!

perfect rental steps from the mountain

  • 5 of 5

we couldn't have asked for a better location and rental for our skiing trip, just steps from the day lodge and a view of max's out the back door. the kitchen had just about every essential you can think of, and the drinks, coffee and wine dee left was a wonderful surprise. the place is very well maintained while also cozy which provides you with the perfect home away from home for your vacation. dee was a pleasure with the back and forth of questions/concerns and didn't hesitate to accommodate any request. we wouldn't hesitate to book here again, in fact i'm not sure we'd want to stay anywhere else.

Excellent Clean & Well Maintained Palace for Adventure Seeking Couple

  • 5 of 5

The home was wonderful. It was in the perfect location, right in the middle of Girdwood with easy access to every venue around. Walking distance too. The condo itself is a no brainer to purchase for a long weekend or even a week like we did. The inside is clean, large and modern with local flares and designs throughout. Coming from NY we wanted to have a luxurious stay and have access to household items that we were not able to travel with. It was overall very tastefully decorated and catered to any traveler’s needs. The spa and Jacuzzi tub were a huge plus after hiking up and down the mountains every day. The owners were very accommodating and very fast with responding to our questions, even during our stay. I highly recommend this home to anybody who is traveling to the area.
