Beautiful view overlooking the ocean - one of the best views (been to Alaska four times). Very clean and quiet. Complimentary tea and coffee, oatmeal packs/snacks were a nice accommodation in addition to the full-sized fridge and washer/dryer. It's not directly in town which provided us with a more serene/quiet feel to our stay (have stayed at other rentals right downtown previously which were loud and right on the highway). Was nice to sit out on the deck and eat meals overlooking the ocean (grill is a bonus). This was our second stay at this location. Fold-out couch was a great addition to the queen bed. We plan to come again.
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.
