Anchorage house description

This is a uniquely beautiful and comfortable 2-story home on a 2/3 acre secluded lot in a quiet neighborhood on Anchorage's hillside. If you are going to come all the way to Alaska for vacation, make sure you enjoy the beauty of it in the place you stay too!

This home is a custom-built 2000 sq ft house full of personal touches. It has tons of windows and natural light, and is full of custom tile, painting, and woodwork. (It is rare that visitors don't comment on how nice and comfortable it is.)
It is fully furnished and has 2 master bedrooms and 1 smaller room + 3 bathrooms that provide plenty of space for everyone. It sleeps 3-7 with 2 queen beds & 1 double bed + 1 twin-size bed available. This home feels remote as it is tucked into a wooded lot in a quiet neighborhood near the mountains and hillside parks. Yet, it is still very close to all the city amenities, so don't be surprised if you have wildlife such as moose walk right through the yard, even with the grocery store and shopping stores only a few miles away!

The home has an open living area with a TV, DVD player, BOSE stereo system, and an open and inviting fully furnished kitchen. There is high-speed WIFI throughout the house, and a west-facing deck with a gas BBQ to enjoy the afternoon & evening sun setting over the Alaska Range mountains. Each of the master bedrooms have their own custom bathrooms, and a third full bathroom can be used by all on the main floor.

With easy access to Minnesota Drive & the Seward Highway it is only 15 minutes from the airport, 20 minutes from downtown, walking distance to the zoo & park trails, 5 minutes from shopping and restaurants, and 10 minutes from the Chugach State Park trails.

                            Loved the property and location! In town for a family wedding, the house was a great base for a weeks stay. Our family that lives in Alaska also loved the house - it was a perfect house for us to have some great family time. We spent many evenings after the late night airports runs sitting at the breakfast bar sipping our favorite Alaska beer and getting caught up. Jennifer was great to work with and responded to email promptly. No problem getting to the house using Jennifer's directions and a GPS the first night- after that it was easy. It is located a little out of town in a very nice quite area. Saw a family of moose 2 different times just down the road! Everything you need is in the house. Washer and dryer made it easier to pack light! House was clean and inviting when we arrived. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need - only suggestion would be to get some newer pots and pans. Bedrooms were roomy and clean - bathrooms very modern. Would highly recommend this property to any type of group. It does fill up quickly so get your request in early!

                            We were four senior adults traveling together. This house is warm and inviting with all the comforts anyone might need. It was very clean and well-maintained. While it is off the beaten path, it is easily accessible. The setting gives one the feel of Alaska. We recommend it to others who may follow. Thank you Jennifer.

                            The owners were very responsive from our first inquiry throughout our stay; the house is charming; and the location convenient to downtown, Flattop Mountain, and the highway for daytrips.

                            Jennifer was very nice to work with and her home is one of a kind! Absolutely beautiful, clean and relaxing! I was so impressing with the house. I enjoyed EVERY single minute at this house and would highly recommend staying here to relax, be with family and friends and/or rest. The house is in a lovely, quiet neighborhood. It was so much more than I could ask for! Everything was clean and ready for our arrival. Trash bags, dish soap, laundry detergent, clean towels, clean sheets, extra pillows and sheets and towels, hand soap- everything was there!

                            We had a wonderful time staying at the house. Everything we needed was there. the house is in great shape and the beds were comfortable. The only bad thing I could say is there is hardly any storage for your clothes. No dressers. It might be worthwhile to pick up some small ones. Other than that, great. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Anchorage.

                            Great place to stay while in Anchorage. Nothing is more than 20 minutes away and in a lovely neighborhood on the hillside. Lots of space for an extended family of 6. Well stocked kitchen for those that want to cook with the grocery just down the street. Appliances were great and even the hair dryer was a nice surprise. Even the decor makes you feel like you are in a luxury Alaskan "cabin". The reservation and payment process was very easy. I highly recommended it.

                            I stayed at this home for 2 weeks in July with my husband and a friend of mine and her son. We attended a two week class in Anchorage and the home was perfect!! Nestled in a wooded neighborhood, the home is close to everything while providing such a peaceful retreat. Inside, the home is kept especially clean, which is really important to me, and it is beautifully decorated. The owner is wonderful and so helpful with answering questions. I call it a "home" because it was that comfortable to be staying in it for the two weeks. And seeing a mother moose with her baby on our street was so exciting to this Jersey girl! The location is perfect if you need to be in Anchorage but we also found it easy to travel both north and south. It is an easy day trip to Portage, Girdwood and even Seward. Going north, we made a day trip to the Matanuska Glacier, which to us was the highlight of the trip! There are also many other sites to see up north, but because of the classes we were unable to get there. I highly recommend this rental home and would stay there again, if I were heading to Alaska! Within Anchorage, the home i

                            This property was perfect for our party of six. Each couple had their own space and bath, plus the common areas were comfortable for visiting and planning our outings. We found the kitchen to be well-stocked and organized although we did not prepare any meals at the house. The owner quickly responded to my emails prior to our stay. In addition, there were clear instructions and expectations posted at the house and sent directly to me via email. The location worked for us because we made day trips to Whittier and downtown. However, it was a drive to the downtown shopping and restaurants. Our vacation started and ended in Anchorage, and we had already experienced staying downtown which was a nice way to begin the vacation. Ending our vacation in the house was very relaxing. We were able to enjoy Alaska during the day and watch the summer olympics in the evening.
