Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Salmon Creek - Mountainside Vacation Rental

1500 sq ft. 3 Bedrooms 2 Full Bath with Mountain and Ocean view

Centrally located in a friendly neighborhood mid-way between Downtown Juneau and the Mendenhall Valley, it is convenience with a view at an affordable price. A large deck, with great sun exposure, looks out over beautiful Gastineau Channel, Douglas Island and the majestic Chilkat Mountain Range. A home with 2 comfy queen beds, twin sized bunk beds and if needed a queen sized futon couch. Its a perfect place to rest after a busy day out and about.

Some things very nearby:

Just down the hill is Twin Lakes park. In addition to two small lakes, there are shelters, a playground and walking path. It's a pleasant place for a morning jog, mid-day outing or evening stroll. For more vigorous activity, hike up to the Salmon Creek Reservior and enjoy the peaceful sounds of birds and flowing water, takes about 2 hours. DIPAC, the local salmon hatchery is just around the corner (1.9 miles). There you can learn about the life cycle of salmon and view other local sea life. Watch returning salmon go up the fish ladder and perhaps spot a seal offering motivation. Enjoy a fresh grilled salmon dinner at the Salmon Bake, an outdoor eating experience with live entertainment, located on the bank of Salmon Creek (1.4 mi). Costco (1.7 mi) and Walmart (2.1 mi) are nearby grocery stores. For a quick snack or meal-to-go, the Breeze-In Bakery and Deli is a good choice (1.4 mi ).

About Merigwen Kawakami

Merigwen was moved to Juneau from California by her parents at the age of 6. Upon seeing the then muddy streets of downtown, she was less than impressed and started to cry. Forty-three years later, she is still here...raising her three children with her Japanese husband, Tom and thanking her parents for the beautiful place she calls home.

Merigwen Kawakami purchased this house in 2013

Why Merigwen Kawakami chose Juneau

This area of Juneau receives great sunlight from morning to night. No matter where you want to go, you are nearly there. It's easy access to bike paths and the city bus line. Best of all, I love the view of the Chilkat mountains.

Perfect for our people!

  • 4 of 5

Our visit to Juneau was delightful. With five adults, the accommodations were perfect! The kitchen was well supplied and the overall space was great. It took a bit of time to figure out the heater...a minor issue. Only one issue we all were in agreement on was that the living/family room sofa was uncomfortable and kept sliding apart. Overall, on our trip to eight different towns on the Inside Passage, this property was at the top of our list.

Owner's Response: Thank you considering the house to be the best place of your stay while touring Alaska and for your feedback. If it happens to you it can happen to others. I'll see about posting instructions for the monitor heater. Sorry about the couch slipping. Perhaps it wasn't pushed back correctly. It is a simple but different kind of design. I'll make up instructions for it also. Alaska is a beautiful place, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and the view.

Merigwen was very accommodating she even bought rugs for mud room on my mom's request! This is the second year we have stayed there and both times were great! I would recommend this place to anyone.

The house was very comfortable and in an excellent location. The deck provided wonderful views.

  • 3 of 5

The property provided a wonderful place for our family to stay. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fairly well supplied. We would have enjoyed more towels and kitchen linens and did run out of toilet paper. Perhaps these could be better stocked. Overall, we had a comfortable stay and would have no doubts about using the place again. Cleanliness and location were the best features. Give it a try--you won't be disappointed!

The house was clean, had plenty of room and had a great view

  • 4 of 5

great house in perfect location. The house was clean, with good sized bedrooms & closets. Living area was comfy; great views from the deck and bedrooms. Towels super soft. Hair dryers and toiletries supplied was a bonus. Merigwen was super friendly & helpful. Would stay there again.

I give this house 4.5 only because there were no screens on the windows so we could not keep windows open very long before the bugs brigade visited.

Owner's Response: Will work on finding screens to fit the windows. Screens will keep out mosquitoes but not no-see-ums. Will try to find another solution to help with that. Thanks for your feedback. It was great having you.

Clean, fits the idea of Alaska perfectly.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Juneau, the home was clean and comfortable, we happened to luck out and come when it was unusually warm like 80 degrees.

The house is not equipped for that kind of weather. So it was rather warm for sleeping the first couple nights ,screens on the windows would have helped, however there are small fans that help a little. but not to worry as would be expected it cooled down. On the flip side we only experience a couple days of rain therefore we got to enjoy the deck which became our favorite place to watch the eagles, and watch the tide come in and out truly amazing views and great location. The morning we were leaving there was a bear having breakfast on the salmon berries just 10 feet from our car, what a thrill to watch the black bear eat berries for awhile. Merigwen the owner was so willing to come late at night when we arrived to bring a pak and play for our grandson. She is very accommodating, we would love to come back sometime.

Owner's Response: I wondered if you had seen the bear. After you left, I came across its calling card on the lawn. Thanks for mentioning it, as it reinforces the importance of keeping garbage in the garage and the grill clean as bears do pass through the neighborhood. Will look for screens for the windows. It's been a warmer summer than usual so good to know what needs to be done for all types of weather. It was nice to meet you.

Just down the hill is a local park called Twin Lakes. In addition to two small lakes, there is a playground, shelters and walking path. It is a nice place for a morning jog, midday outing or evening stroll. For more vigorous activity, hike (or Mountain Bike) up to the Salmon Creek Reservior and enjoy the peaceful sounds of birds and flowing water. The hike is about 8 miles, 800 ft elevation. Takes about 2 hours. Also nearby is DIPAC, the local salmon hatchery (1.9 mi.). There you can learn about the life cycle of salmon and view other local sea life.
