Staying at Mike's place was perfect for our stay in Juneau. It was central, clean and comfortable. We were able to explore Juneau and its environs with a great home base! Thanks for everything, Mike!
Mike was a great host -it was a stressful trip for me and I am so grateful that Mike's place was a relaxing happy place. His directions were spot on, the home was clean and comfortable with a bed and bath for me. For sure I will stay there next time I go to Juneau -I tried several hotels in Juneau and Mikes place wins hands down.
Excellent surroundings and accommodations. Easy to reach from bridge and enjoy the scenery. The 3 children are a joy to visit with and so athletic. Mike takes good care of everything. Prepare to use a taxi from either airport or ferry boat. Enjoy the long walks to town
Very welcoming host, who made us feel at home and kindly gave us a lift on a rainy evening and gave a great dinner recomendation. Roomy bedroom with private bathroom. Thanks for a great stay in Juneau, Andy and Elisabeth, Isle of Man.
We stayed 3 nights in Mikes wonderful House and can only say, that this is a great place to stay if visiting Juneau: The house is in a great location away from all the busy huge cruiseships, but its very easy to get downtown (walking 5min and then a short busride). Mike is a most sympathetic host, quick replying, helpful and very uncomplocated. His children are very nice and friendly! We highly recommend them!
