About Donna Evans

My husband and I moved along with our three daughters to Alaska in 1991. This move was to be a two-year adventure, with every intent of moving back to the Lower 48. Twenty-five years later we continue to call Girdwood, Alaska our home, as well as our favorite place on earth. We are long distance motorcycle riders and welcome bikers. You will enjoy the convenience of access to a power washer, compressed air and a lift. We have ridden the ALCAN several times - let us help you plan an amazing ride!

Donna Evans purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Donna Evans chose Girdwood

Our first 14 years in Alaska found us living in Anchorage; however, we traveled to Girdwood most weekends for either skiing or hiking and fell in love with the fresh air, beautiful mountain vistas and overall serenity. We bought this property in 1996 as a true 'fixer-upper'! Many years later, along with lots of elbow grease, we have created a home we are eager to share with you.

What makes this apartment unique

AMAZING FRESH AIR and MOUNTAIN VIEWS right out the front door.

Highest Marks

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 3 days in this centrally located, immaculate apartment with wonderful views of the mountain from both the living room and bedroom. Jim and Donna gave us insider's information relating to the best restaurants and activities in their area. It is amazing having native Alaskan's, who are not in the tourist industry, providing valuable information. This made our trip. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood. Loved the Netflix on the large TV. Highest marks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of our apartment. I agree with you on the wonderful views and perfect location. You two were an inspiration to Jim and me, as we loved your, "get out there and do it!" attitude. Hope to see you back in beautiful, quiet Girdwood! Cheers, Donna

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Donna and Jim's place in Girdwood. The apartment is spacious and very cozy and comfortable. We ate out all the time, but would have enjoyed cooking in the amazing and fully equipped kitchen. Our Alaskan vacation ended on a high note thanks to our gracious hosts and the unbelievably beautiful setting in Girdwood/ Alyeska. We hope to go back there real soon!

Immaculate. Convenient location. Alyeska view.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Donna was a great host, right next door but not intrusive. Great location not far from Anchorage, Whittier, Seward. Also, easy walk to local restaurants, convenient access to walk/bike trails. Beautiful views of Mt. Alyeska from the living room. We were happy to see the request to remove shoes since we do that at home. It was extremely clean, comfortable, quiet. As we were visiting during the time of the midnight sun, room darkening drapes worked great! Getting sleep was important since we were in Alaska to run a half marathon in Anchorage. The kitchen was well-equipped. Highly recommend! As mentioned in some other comments, the only caveat is for anyone who has mobility issues since you need to climb stairs to get to the apartment.

Owner's Response: I am so happy the apartment provided a convenient "home away from home" during your visit to Girdwood and its central location was beneficial. I am especially happy Mother Nature provided lovely weather for the wedding.
