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!

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.

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at this condo in Girdwood. The location was perfect. We lucked out and stayed during the Girdwood Forest Festival. It was in walking distance. There are many places near the condo that you can walk to including hiking trails, restaurants, places to bike, and a handy market. There a resort nearby with a tram that is fun to take to the top for amazing pictures. We had an amazing day booking a dog sledding trip with the Girdwood Dog company and met Nicolas Petit, who taught us all about the dogs if you are a dog lover. The location is great if you want to take a railroad day trip, drive to Whitter through the tunnel, visit the Alaska animal reserve, or take a drive down to Seward. The condo itself is extremely comfortable, has a well stocked kitchen, and an incredible jacuzzi bath tub. The owners were very helpful and friendly. I'd highly recommend staying at this condo! I would love to return.

Lovely area

  • 4 of 5

Girdwood was beautiful! The condo is an easy walk from a few restaurants and bars in the heart of a little mountain retreat. The condo is exactly as pictured in the photos. It is great for two people, possible 4 if you are planning on spending your time outside and not in the condo. The bathroom does have a sauna and whirlpool tub, but those are both located right next to the toilet so these options would not work well if you were traveling with friends and not very close family. For a couples weekend these amenities were wonderful! Also be prepared that the kitchen is fully stocked, but that means other than the fridge you won't have much storage room. There is a little grocery in the village so you won't have a need to over pack. If you are looking for a comfortable condo to use as your base for outdoor activities it is well set up for that! The property is nice and clean with a super comfy bed and as advertised the water was great!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great feedback. Yes Girdwood is a great place to enjoy the outdoors! We love our time there and the many trails near by. Good point about food storage, I usually use the closet across from the kitchen for that. The cozy condo is definitely more suited for a couple or a family with small children I agree. We typically do not see many inquires for four adults since it's a one bedroom. We hope your travels bring you back to our beautiful state again. Cheers

When Can We Come Back?

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place with the plan to explore the areas surrounding Girdwood, but have the condo as our home base for our stay. It was perfect! Dee and Sean were both very responsive and helpful whenever we had any questions, which honestly were not many. They had so many helpful instructions once we got into their place that we didn't really have any questions on how to access anything that we needed. The time of our visit was wonderful as well. We were able to do a lot of hiking (Flat Top Mountain in Anchorage, Bird Ridge - which was AMAZING but difficult, Winner Creek Trail and Exit Glacier/Harding Ice Field in Seward). The weather was great...didn't rain once! Girdwood is a very cute town and fairly quiet. We would recommend this place to anyone! :) Thanks for a wonderful place for our amazing vacation!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

I rented this wonderful condo for a staycation for my kids and I. My boys were able to walk to the mountain to ski and I enjoyed a relaxing day in the spa at the nearby resort.

The condo was stocked with everything you could possibly need for a wonderful vacation. Thank you so much to Sean and Dee for offering this condo!
