About Bjorn Bork

I grew up in Homer Alaska, my wife is from Berlin. We share a passion for skiing, snowboarding hiking fresh air and the outdoors. I moved to Girdwood in 2007 and have enjoyed the fun ski town vibe that Girdwood offers.

Bjorn Bork purchased this condo in 2009

Why Bjorn Bork chose Girdwood

I am the original owner of this condo. It was purchased brand new in 2009. Since then this condo has been our home until we converted it into a vacation rental in 2015. I chose Girwood/Alyeska because it is one of the major ski/snowboard destinations in North America. Known for steep slopes, 650 inches of snow on average (978" in 2011-2012) and access to some amazing backcountry in the Chugiak range.

What makes this condo unique

Great central location in the Girdwood town square. 1 minute drive to the Alyeska Ski Resort. Plush towels, heated garage, mountain views, quiet neighbors, immaculately clean, fresh air, Alaskan wildlife.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We made a very good decision to make our first stop on our first trip to Alaska in Girdwood in The Hightower Suite. The suite suited our needs for eight enjoyable days. The quaint little town of Girdwood has a number of restaurants for it's size and we ate at four of them which were all very different and very good. Things to do close by are Crow Creek Mine, Alyeska Resort in the ski area and the Alaska Conservation Center. About 1 hour & 30 minutes away is Seward and further down the road from Girdwood is Homer which is about 3hours and 30 minutes which we made a over nite.

The owner double booked the condo on our first night so we had to find a motel at 2am which was not easy and was expensive. The condo's microwave didn't work and the threads on the caps for the air mattresses were stripped so, needless to say, it was uncomfortable.

We loved the location though.

Owner's Response: Sorry, there needs to be some clarification added to this review. This guest was not "double booked" on the first night. It is impossible to double book using VRBO. The calendar system automatically blocks in the dates that you have paid for. The VRBO calendar will then not allow another guest to pay for the dates that are already reserved. This guest somehow thought it was all right to try and check in 15 hours prior to the normal check in time at 4pm on the date of arrival. She showed up 2AM the night before her check in date without paying for it!!! It is a two bedroom condo with advertised sleeping for 6 people. Bed space is two in each bedroom with room for two more on the sofas in the living room. They claimed to be a party of 6 during booking but they showed up with 8 people hence the use of the extra air mattress which had been left there by previous guests. The air mattress is something extra that I have left for a convenience, not an advertised sleeping space. The microwave was also promptly replaced with a brand new one shortly after their stay!

What a find! Centrally located, quiet, spacious, and with every feature one could ever want. Clean and nicely furnished. Kitchen well stocked (including oils and spices), plenty of linen, and even a movie collection! Didn't want to write a review so that it would be available for us alone! Thanks!!

Our stay at The Hightower Suite exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! The condo was clean, had all the amenities we needed and the beds were very comfortable. We even saw a bear strolling through the parking lot! We took the tram up Mt. Alyeska and had lunch and the next day went to Whittier. Overall, our Girdwood stay was fun and relaxing.
