The home was as advertised, nicely appointed and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything in the home was amenable and views are fantastic. Having the sauna and hot tub were nice after a long day out hiking, kayaking, or boating. It was perfectly located for our needs. Carolyn was very helpful in answering our Juneau vacation questions and was easy to communicate with. We would stay there again for sure and really appreciate Carolyn's hospitality.
Carolyn and her house were terrific. There was plenty of space for two couples plus 5 kids, and it could have accommodated more. The living room has a majestic view looking over Gastineau Channel, complete with soaring bald eagles. The kitchen is very nice, and easy to work in and use.
Moreover, Carolyn was very responsive and clearly cared about our comfort and happiness.
Our extended family stayed simultaneously in the house immediately next door, owned by the Mosers, so I'll say here what I also said in my review of that lovely home: The house is only a short distance from the Juneau-Douglas bridge, making it perfectly positioned to get to any and everything in Juneau within minutes, yet giving us an ideal home base with a terrific view.
The look of the neighborhood is not snooty, high-falutin'. The homes are nice and upscale, but they have a comfortable lived-in quality, with pick-ups and boats in driveways. The friend of a friend who works for the state and lives farther north on Douglas Island in a more remote region warned us when he drove past before we arrived that there is a radio tower very close by and visible, no doubt, from the windows. Yes, there is, but we hardly noticed it, and it did nothing to detract from the gorgeous view and our awesome time. In fact, the tower is a draw for bald eagles, so we spent plenty of time just gazing over at the cross bars where multiple eagles would routinely perch. In short, it's a very livable, lovely spot and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there.
We would heartily recommend Carolyn and her home to anyone.
