Alaska Northern Sands

Alaska Northern Sands is located on the beach in Auke Bay.  This premier rental offers high quality living with spectacular views and great ambiance. While private, it is centrally located with quick access to a wide variety of local activities and sights. We are located in a protected portion of the “Auke Bay banana belt”, where it rains only about half as much as it rains in downtown Juneau.

Your stay in the Penthouse Suite and/or the Ocean View Room also affords you direct and easy access to the beach as well as our beachfront gazebo.

The AKNS Penthouse Suite

The Alaska Northern Sands Suite is approximately 600 square feet.  It is a fully furnished apartment with a completely outfitted kitchen.  We also have a propane barbecue available for your use on the deck adjacent to your off-street parking area. The Suite has a separate bedroom with a queen bed.  There is a full sized hide-a-bed in the living room.  In the Suite’s bathroom there is a washer/dryer as well as an iron, ironing board and hair dryer.  In addition to cable TV, wireless internet is available.  A large covered deck with a table and chairs allows you to dine or relax just outside your front door, enjoying the surrounding ocean and garden views.


The Ocean View Room is about 400 square feet, fully furnished with a queen bed.  In addition, we can bring in a twin bed for a third guest. It has a chest of drawers, an armoire, cable TV, a small dining table with 2 chairs, a full sized refrigerator/freezer, and a microwave.  Although there is no stove or oven there is an electric griddle along with cooking utensils, glassware, plates and silverware.  The bathroom has a shower with a hair dryer.  Wireless internet is available and as well as off-street parking.  It has a beautiful view of the ocean and our gardens.  It has its own entrance two floors below the Suite with easy access to the beach and the gazebo.

The Suite and Ocean View Room are typically booked together providing two couples or a family of 4 an economical way to stay in an outstanding location.  However, in some cases the OVR may still be available if our guests only want the Suite.  Please contact us if you only interested in the Ocean View Room.

Please note that we are a vacation rental, not a bed & breakfast or a hotel. Accordingly, we do not provide meals or daily maid service for either the Suite or the Ocean View Room.

Check-in time is normally 4:00 pm although we can often check in guests earlier if we have had enough time to clean after our prior guests have departed. Normal check-out time is 10:00 am.
