This property is managed by Vacasa. Our experience with Vacasa was very poor.

The condo unit itself pleased us. It was comfortable, clean, and well-appointed. The online pictures are accurate. As noted in reviews it, the condo building itself is old (1970s?) and shows a lot of wear - but that did not affect us much. Note that the cost of this condo becomes quite high after numerous fees are eventually tacked on to the advertised base price.

Our problems centered on the unprofessional conduct of Vacasa management. For several days leading up to our arrival, our attempts at reaching management were consistently ignored. We needed help, and got nothing, despite numerous attempts using emails (unanswered), online chat sessions (no response), and phone calls (lengthy voicemail hold, with eventual disconnect).

Online advice at VRBO says: "when the management repeatedly fails to respond to you, consider cancelling your trip". Despite this sound advice, we launched our trip anyway, acting only on faith.

A couple hours before our actual arrival at the condo (after we stepped off the jet in Anchorage), I was contacted by a local Vacasa representative in Girdwood, who reached out to ask me for a favor ("Will you please leave the condo so we can do some maintenance?"). From that point on, after we were finally able to reach a real person on site, I received the prompt help and the level of service we should have received all along.

We are easy-going folks who are generally easy to please. But in this instance, given the overall poor service, the frustration, and ineptness we experienced, combined with the relatively high cost of the condo, my advice to customers is to seek a rental unit elsewhere. There are plenty of other options in Girdwood that are not managed by Vacasa.
Manager response:
Hi Kurt, we appreciate that you took the time to share your review. We apologize for any delay in communication. We are actively adding to our team so that we are able to better assist our guests. We hope to have the opportunity to impress you in the future.

We found the unit itself very clean, convenient to skiing, dining and walking. Very quiet ! Perfect for our needs and the owner was very responsive when we had a problem finding the lockbox.
Thanks for the wonderful weekend, we are well rested ! Suggest saying the lockbox is located in the right stairwell as you're facing the building as that is how most people will see it initially.

Well stocked, clean and great location

Good location! This condo was clean and well appointed. Good kitchen, even for 7 people to share. Netflix on the TV, nice warm gas fireplace, and some Christmas lights! Easy to ski in with fresh snow on the road... 5 minute walk up the hill to ski from Sitzmark. Would stay here again.

Really nice and quiet place to have a family get away,

This is a well-kept condo. It is pretty close to the slope, and is quiet.

Even though the apartment was clean and in good condition, one of the bathroom was only 3/4th, but listed as full bath. Also this bathroom had a problem with commode and made us not use this bathroom entirely.
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us! Most websites do not accommodate listings for 3/4 baths, so we do list it as a full. Please view the pictures to help get a better feel for what you will be renting. The toilet has been checked. We hope to see you again!

Nice place to stay .. very comfortable and clean.
Would highly recommend. Great Location.

We stayed here for a family vacation, and it was perfect for us. We stayed here for 3 nights before making the trip to Seward, and it worked out fabulously. The location is very close to Alyeska Resort (within walking distance of a mile or so?) . The kitchen suited us perfectly for making meals, so we didn't have to eat out as much. And the living room was a nice place to crash after an active day of hiking and sightseeing. In the master bedroom, we could hear the creek running, so it made for nice, relaxing evenings. There were blinds in all the rooms but nothing that blocked out the light, which made it kind of hard to fall asleep so close to the summer solstice. However, we participated in so many activities throughout the day that it didn't take long to fall asleep, This will definitely become our "go-to" place for extended stays in the Anchorage area! We loved it.

Well organized.

Good location and plenty of space for the price.
Shelby S. Mar 2019
Great place with gas fireplace, perfect for the after-slope wind down. 5-10 minute walk to the slopes makes for convenient access.
Lori G. Jan 2019
Great location and clean condo
Gary M. Jan 2019
It really felt quite comfortable and had a lot of charm. Great photo's of Turnagain arm as well. It was very quiet even with a lot of families living in the building. Hope to rebook someday.
Sherri M. Dec 2018
There was absolutely everything in the condo that we could’ve hoped for and then some, the location to the slopes was great, even the neighbors are friendly and nice. Highly recommend it!!

This home was very well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen and very clean sleeping quarters! We found a Safeway, but it looks more like a convenience store, right in downtown, just a short walk away from the home, and despite its appearance is VERY well equipped.

The condominium office is about a block and a half away and definitely recommend you stop there, per the check-in instructions, so as not to risk towing from the private parking lot.

The condo is very well placed for access to the mountainside, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, and every little thing I’d expect to find in a small town.
