Mike was very accommodating as we arrived rather late and he was able to provide us with a power cord for a small portable cooler that was in our vehicle. The bed and shower were good and the views were awesome. We were busy while we were in Juneau and so had very little time to connect however Mike and his son made us feel welcome during our stay.
Mike et sa famille sont extrêmement sympathiques et très accueillants. Superbe maison, propreté impeccable, possibilité de se servir de la cuisine qui est très bien équipée.
Le logement se trouve au calme, et à proximité de Juneau (moins de 5 minutes en voiture).
Chambre confortable avec salle de bain adjacente.
Mikes place was great! I didn't actually get to meet Mike in person, but staying at his place was wonderful. Spacious, full of light. Close to downtown. I felt like I was at home. The swing in the house was awesome. I hosted a girls night while I was there and it was wonderful. It was the perfect place to entertain. Mike was kind and welcoming. The view was awesome! And the best part? Cork city. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
What a great house! Definitely a nice and quiet place to stay in Juneau. We were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves and it really made our short stay in Juneau!
Our experience at Mike's house was great. Mike was not there when we stayed but he ensured we were taken care of by his friend who greeted us. He checked up on us as well to ensure that we were having a great experience. We stayed three nights at Mike's and it is a great location. You may be across the bridge but you are so close to downtown you will not even feel it.
Mike has a wonderful home with a beautiful view. It's within walking distance to town and I enjoyed my stay. Mike provided great communication and made sure we felt welcome. I would be happy to recommend his home to others.
Mike is an amazing host. Just met him for a few minutes to check in because he had to go on a trip himself, but he explained everything necessary, left emergency contacts and notes how to operate things in his house. You will find everything you may need here and feel like being at home. In this house you see in every detail that there lives a family where everybody takes care of each other. Mike, above all, you seem to be a really awesome dad for your children.
