We also have a private bedroom with queen size bed and full bath upstairs, which we rent in connection with the Suites at a reasonable rate.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Verena and Rudi enjoy the interaction with people from near and far. Verena being an avid traveler herself loves to talk about her and the guests travel. Verena grew up in a small town in Switzerland and therefore enjoys gardening, flowers and a house full of plants.

              Why the Owner Chose Anchorage:
              We always had personal company from the USA and from Europe mainly. When we built our new home in 2001/2002, we decided to open our home to the tourists, as there always seems to be a shortage of reasonable accommodations in Anchorage during the summer months.

              The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
              We are conveniently located approx. 5 miles from the Airport, the perfect location for late arrivals by air. We are also only minutes away from highway access south and north, as well as convenient to parks, businesses, shopping, trails, universities and hospitals. Our Suites are the ideal arrangement for the discriminating traveler or for the need to travel to Anchorage for medical reasons, temporary work, or whatever the need to travel to Anchorage might be.
