Above the Rocks Lower
Sitka, Alaska, United States 99835
“Above the Rocks Suite Lower” is a one bedroom, one bath, lower level rental that provides for one of the most picturesque and photographed views in all of Sitka. It will comfortably accommodate 3 adults with one double bed and a high end sofa-queen-sleeper with 4" foam/gel mattress, in the living room.
Named for the “Old Sitka Rocks,” which are actually seven small islands that are a magnet for bird life and marine mammals, this rental offers incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. Just gazing out your windows, it is a rare time that Bald Eagles are not soaring overhead, perched in the tall Sitka Spruce, or swooping low over the water in search of a meal. The Pelagic Cormorant and a variety of waterfowl and gulls are often seen on “the rocks” almost continuously. Marine mammals that frequent the rocks area include Humpback Whales, Sea Lions, and Sea Otters. The local commercial fishing boats either pass by or fish the area daily, adding to the relaxing "Sitka" experience.
Our “Above the Rocks” unit is located 1.7 miles from the Ferry Terminal and the spectacular Starrigavan recreation area, including some of the best hiking trails in Sitka. Also less than a mile South is the Halibut Point Recreation Beach, and the Harbor Mountain Road with it’s spectacular views and trails. Downtown is 7 minutes away, and the city bus stop is just at the bottom of the hill for those preferring not to rent a car.

This little apt was fabulous. Just far enough outside of town to feel secluded. Very clean and sweet and private. View of the water. Be sure to eat at Ludvigs. Reservations a must. Channel Club was excellent as well. Found some beautiful hikes and walks nearby. The Rocks was a peaceful serene place to come home to. Enjoy!
Great place to stay
We enjoyed our stay at Above the Rocks. Everything was nicely updated. Really liked the full size fridge since we were there almost a week. The view is great from the dining table. We liked the large great room space. A real bonus was the washer & dryer. We would definitely stay there again. It was a nice surprise to have a plate of lemon bread on the counter welcoming us.

Above the Rocks Lower Suite in Sitka, AK
This was my second time staying at this particular rental, and it was just as wonderful as my first visit. Excellent customer service, beautiful location with views, clean and welcoming, The full kitchen is a real bonus for lengthy stays, as is the washer/dryer. I would highly recommend finding vacation rentals through this company, and the "Above the Rocks - lower suite", is an ecellent choice.
Would definitely recommend
Wonderful rental property! I enjoyed my 4-night stay, and would highly recommend to others.
Very nice view
Very nice ocean view apartment, cozy. Nice people upstairs, very clean. I would stay here again.
On a 30 day journey to Alaska and back, this place ranks as the best accommodation and the best value received. The driveway was a challenge but proved no problem--I just gave more thought into leaving and arriving! Washer and dryer were a real plus and were used. Full kitchen allowed us to buy food, save some money, and prepare and have some of the best meals on the journey. Everything was clean, modern, and the view each morning and evening over the waters so much better than any motel!! Stay here and experiences in Sitka make this part of our trip worthy of a repeat.
Old Sitka Rocks
Lovely place, very quiet and clean. Great view across bay. Would have given a higher star rating except for the distance out to the place and the driveway up to the house - its very steep and dark. Hosts were great and very friendly. A wonderful place for those seeking a serene setting.
