My fiance and I stayed with Mike on a recent house hunting trip to Juneau. Mike was very welcoming and helpful in sharing information about Juneau and helping us with our house search! We really enjoyed staying with him, the accommodations were great, very cozy and just what we needed for our trip. It was so great to stay with a local and get the lay of the land for our impending move! His place is in a great location with spectacular views of the channel and surrounding mountains. It was awesome to be able to use the kitchen to cook to save some money while we were in town. We would highly recommend staying with Mike for anyone visiting Juneau!
Mike was a wonderful host and a great guy! The house is amazing and sits on a hillside looking down at Gastineau Channel, very close to down town Juneau. He was extremely accommodating and I had an absolute blast with his kids as well. As I was there for a month, Mike went out of his way to invite me to local events and involve me in other recreational activities as well so I could really get to know the people and town of Juneau during my stay. I would highly recommend booking this listing if you are headed to Juneau!
Mike made me feel very welcome when I first arrived around 10pm on a Sunday. He is friendly, family focused, and his family is great and entertaining. I appreciate that Mike communicated with me about heating installations and gave me updates on what time people would be installing equipment. I loved having my own bathroom! Clean, beautiful house, and great company. I will definitely stay here again in the future, Mike is a great host and very accommodating.
Mike is a fantastic host. He's attentive, friendly, cool, and has a knack for holding great conversations with jet-lagged travelers. Some of his stories left my jaw on the floor. His home is really nice, the added touches being the private bathroom and gorgeous views from the back deck, and his great family. Downtown is a 20-minute walk, so you're connected to everything from his home. The house, and the company it keeps, are exactly what I look for in an ideal AirBnB. Overall, I had an awesome experience and will be calling Mike for a place to stay whenever I'm in town.
Mike and his family were thoughtful, friendly, and helpful. Their home is comfortable and in a grand setting. They were generous with their hospitality; we were happy visitors indeed! You park at the road level, and access the house via stairs and covered walkway. Their guest bedroom and adjacent bath is on the lower level of the house; the kitchen and living area upstairs on the main level. Excellent spot!
Great location with great view right on the water and close to downtown. Mike was very knowledgeable about the area and was a great host.
Had a great time. Very relaxing and in an ideal location on Douglas Island. Mike, his family, and friends were easy to be around and we were very comfortable.
