Dan and Grechen Stockel are the proprietors of Katlian Street Suites. Our family (me, husband, two kids in their 20s) stayed in the 2BR/2 bath [shower, no tub/s] condo happily for 4 (sunny) days - washing clothes, walking next door to delish Ludvig's Bistro (make reservations!), hiking, sea kayaking, etc. Dan picked us up at the airport (about a mile away) upon arrival and took us to the ferry (about a 15 minute drive) for the departure to Juneau, after making sure we filled our water bottles from the local spring. We left not only with a sense of gratitude for the hospitality but for the comfort and cleanliness and spaciousness of the well situated condo. We scored some smoked salmon/salmon jerky/salmon-anything from the seafood business Dan runs below the condo, too. Early on, as I was cobbling the trip together and talking it through with him, he made the suggestion that we spend that one day we had up for grabs in Sitka rather than Juneau. Got that one right! (We did spend one afternoon/overnight in Juneau and that was plenty. In addition to the cute stuff/gold rush vibe architecture, it's got the deadening architecture of state buildings along with a gazillion cruise ships to make it a place good for a few hours. (State Museum is worth it.) Plus, it's r e a l l y spread out. Sitka is really compact.) The condo is right in Tlingit town, across from a busy working harbor. And it has a balcony. It was fun and functional. And Dan and Grechen were fresh and easy to work with - not crusty or greedy or burnt out.
