Above the Rocks Suite Upper
Sitka, Alaska, United States 99835
“Above the Rocks Suite Upper” is a two bedroom, one bath, upper level rental that provides for one of the most picturesque and photographed views in all of Sitka. It will comfortably accommodate 5 guests with one double bed and one single over double bunk bed.
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.

Nice, Clean, Comfortable!
We absolutely loved staying at Above the Rocks rental for 2 weeks. The apartment was very nice, well stocked, clean and comfortable. The view was amazing and from our own living room we saw several humpback whales, sea lions, seals, sea otters and even a sitka deer on the first island across from us. The sun set right in front of the rental and we saw the prettiest skies! Everything about this stay was great and even had a laundry room to do clothes! I cant thank you enough for this special vacation. It was peaceful, safe and we had adventures without even having to leave the rental! It was our third year renting from you and I assure you there will be many more!! Thanks for everything Christine!
Thank you, Judy! Looking forward to having you back!
Beautiful view! Everything was perfect, thank you!
