Awesome In Every Regard - We'll be Back!
Everything about the house, the location, and our interaction with the owner (Matthew) was truly awesome. Matthew was extremely responsive during the booking process and very accommodating with a few upfront special request we had. On our departure day we had the pleasure of meeting him in person (as he was working on the property) and it was refreshing to learn about how committed he was to making sure that renters were happy and to hear about any feedback we might have to make the experience better. Unfortunately we had little to offer as the house, amenities, layout, and location were all perfect. The great room and kitchen are meticulously updated and perfectly arranged for a large group entertaining and or multiple families to enjoy their stay in Girdwood - as was the case with our group. The four bedrooms easily accommodated our group of three couples and a foursome of teenage boys (without anyone having to sleep on the couch and / or the floor). Despite the large group and the varied age groups - everyone was beyond comfortable and a side note is that the bathroom arrangement was ideal and worked out just fine. Overall location to was optimal as well; in that skiers could easily walk to the mountain and non-skiers were centrally located to everything else. The house, driveway, and large deck(s) are very private and the overall setting very tranquil on a large lot and forest-like setting. My family has been renting houses and condos in Girdwood for over two decades and I can honestly say that this property is by far the best, hitting five stars in every department, that we have yet to come across. Only regret is that once 'the secret is out' on Matthew's and Lise's house is that it will be booked the next time we want to stay. Enjoy your stay! Don Meahan
Wow, thank you Don for the kind words. It was a pleasure meeting and hosting you and your family. You are always welcome here, terrific guests!
