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.
Everything was as advertised and when we arrived Mike was there to welcome us and walked us around the house to explain how everything worked and ease us in. During the time we were there Mike made us feel like we were part of the family with his very relaxed demeanour. It was great sitting upstairs having breakfast and looking out through the trees to the water, very relaxing indeed. Having access to the kitchen and laundry were a big plus for us. We walked into Juneau easily and enjoyed the views of the city from the bridge. Would stay with Mike again if we returned.
Mike was extremely welcoming and helpful, and even came to the port to pick us up when our flight was cancelled and we arrived later than expected. He has a beautiful home in lovely wooded surroundings, and we appreciated the comfortable bedroom after an exhausting day. Highly recommended host.
