vacation rental description

The Girdwood Suite Retreat has some very unique and special features: The house is located on 0.6 acres surrounded by old growth forest and is one of the largest parcels of land close to the base of the resort. The home was constructed in 2001 by EECC, one of the top custom home builders in Alaska. It is a 3000 square foot house designed to be open and comfortable. - It has one of the largest private outdoor decks(1000SQF) in Girdwood with a covered hot tub with a view of the Alyeska tram and the ski resort.

The features of the house include four bedrooms - 1 king, 4 queens and 1 single located in the walk-in master closet, full size front load washer/dryer and fully equipped kitchen.

In addition to the house, we have an 800 square foot Cabin with full kitchen, bathroom with shower, 2 queen beds and a click-clack futon.

The combination of the house and cabin make a total of 8 sleeping areas that accommodate 16 people (two per bed) comfortably.

Girdwood is the ideal base-camp for your Alaska vacation, centrally located to some of the best fishing in Alaska and only 20 miles north of Whittier and Portage, the launching point for glacier and marine tours and Prince William Sound. Your hosts, Bill and Sue Connell

traveler reviews for this girdwood house rental

Beautiful house, wonderful vacation!

Review submitted: March 25, 2014   Date of arrival: March 15, 2014

We had 16 people who fit comfortably in this beautiful home. It was a wonderful getaway, close to awesome skiing! The house provided every amenity we needed from cooking utensils to plenty of towels. The hot tub and the deck fireplace were evening favorites!!

Comforts of Home Spacious Living

Review submitted: March 25, 2014   Date of arrival: March 15, 2014

Our family traveled to Anchorage from Fairbanks for our very first "staycation" with two of our good friends and their families for spring break. We had a total of 16 in our party, 10 kids ranging in age from 3-13, 7 of them boys! I was concerned with how comfortable we would all actually find ourselves with such large numbers, but the spaciousness of the house was more than enough to accommodate for our active bunch! The one thing I will say about the stand alone cabin is it is probably geared more towards a family with older kids. The space was very cute and cozy, but with the loft sleeping area, I wasn't as comfortable with my 3, 5, and 7 year old having to go up and down the pull down ladders. The kitchen was fully equipped with a very nice propane stove and all the pots, crockpots, dishes you would need to feed three families. (Bring griddles if you plan on making big breakfasts and Tupperware for storing leftovers) The washer and dryer came in handy, as well as the extra dryer in the garage for drying your wet gear. We used the hot tub quite a bit, and Bill was very kind to come over and fill it up with more water a couple of times as our kids seemed to think it was a play pool instead of a relaxing spot for grown ups to sit. The wifi was a bit spotty and the cable went out mid-week, but Sue was very accommodating and came over a couple of times to reset the router, and was very gracious about us maxing out their data usage with streaming videos. Overall, the space was perfect for all of us and made for fun meals together, hilarious game nights, and wonderful memories. I would definitely recommend Girdwood Suite Retreat to our friends and look forward to another trip there in the future.

Excellent Location, Great Home

Review submitted: December 9, 2013   Date of arrival: December 6, 2013

We rented this house to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was very spacious and accomodating for our party of 6, and our 5-month old baby. We enjoyed being so close to Alyeska to ski and Moose Meadows to XC ski. The kitchen comes fully stocked with everything you need to throw a party. The hot tub was perfect for relaxing after a hard day of skiing. Owners were very helpful and management company were prompt for check-in/checkout.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks Melissa - we appreciate your comments and look forward to your next visit to the Girdwood Suite Retreat.
