Rental Homes

lodging in Juneau

When you’ll be in Juneau for a long time, you want to feel like you’re at home. Because of the way people come and go from Juneau for work, renting a home or apartment for a few months is not uncommon. You’ll have an easier time finding such accommodations in Juneau than you will in other areas. 

Benefits of Staying in a Rental Home

  • Larger living space, especially when traveling as a family
  • Furnished if you don’t plan to bring all your housewares and furniture with you to furnish an apartment or other long-term rental

Because home rentals tend to be longer-term, it’s challenging to put together a full list of rental homes. You might be better off working with a local realtor who offers rental services or searching on sites like Airbnb if you’re seeking a furnished home for rent. Just be sure you’re getting a good rental property by doing a thorough research and reading up on customer reviews.


You might find yourself passing through Juneau for one reason or another. If you’ll be here for a few months or even a year, an apartment might be the best choice for getting comfortable and storing your furniture and other housewares conveniently. 

Benefits of Staying in an Apartment

  • Plenty of space without long-term commitments
  • Lower deposit amounts compared to renting homes
  • Private space that’s yours long-term
  • Bring your own furnishings
  • Studio, one, two, or three-bedroom options available
  • Might have covered parking or a garage

Juneau Apartment Options

  • D&M Rentals: choose from a variety of apartment types and the amount of space you’ll need to accommodate your visitors
  • Sluice Box: kid and pet-friendly apartment that can host up to 4 guests with a kitchen, family room, living room, and washer and dryer

Other Options

There’s also a hostel in Juneau, which provides affordable rates but with limited privacy. This is only ideal if you plan to spend no time at the hostel. In fact, you aren’t even allowed inside from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. And although it is listed as a family-friendly place, you’ll just want to consider how comfortable and convenient it will be when traveling with children. As far as prices go, it’s extremely affordable for families traveling together.

If you’re looking for one of the best lodging options in Juneau, book your stay at Frontier Suites. We can take long-term reservations or even extend your reservations when you aren’t sure how long you’ll be in the area.
