Recent Alaska reviews

  • Great Location with kids

    "Excellent location that is why we have stayed here two years in a row. Condo is in desperate need of an update through out. We bought a new skillet since the same old warped skillet was still there from the previous year. The condo is very clean and the linens always smell very nice and fresh"

  • Great Christmas in Anchorage

    "We stayed 9 days and were impressed at the well-stocked condo. There were five of us and we were quite comfortable. Loved that we could cook, do laundry, play games, pappa and grandson could watch football in living room or bedroom-"Yeh". The condo was convenient for getting to the places we wanted to go, and it had everything we needed. Had a great Christmas in Alaska. Would definitely stay again."

  • WE LOVE ANCHOR INN BY THE SEA

    "We have been visiting Ketchikan once or twice a year for nine years. Anchor Inn by the Sea is our favorite place to stay. The views are spectacular, the grounds are beautiful, the accommodations comfortable and well stocked, pride of ownership is evident in each well appointed apartment, and the owners, Mary and Greg give us just the right amount of attention to make each stay enjoyable and memorable. Views from the kitchen table and the porch include fishing boats of all sizes and types, passenger ferries, cruise ships, cargo barges, local skiffs, and kayakers. Float planes fly to and from fishing camps and other destinations. Marine life includes humpback whales, orcas, porpoises and salmon. We have seen eagles fishing and watched ravens, mink and other wildlife. Sunsets are stunning."

  • Fabulous place to stay

    "We stayed here for 3 nights and just loved our stay. Very roomy and spotlessly clean. Enjoyed pool table and excellent all round facilities. Weather was very kind to us so loved sitting out on the deck. We saw 4 hump back whales in the bay and lots of humming birds and eagles. Hosts are very helpful. We would definitely recommend this rental as 5 star accomodation"

Getting to Alaska Vacation Rentals

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage.

Sometimes if the area you are visiting is more remote, you will need to travel by seaplane or ferry to get there. The road and rail network in Alaska is limited by the rugged glacial terrain but still provides good access to most major towns and tourist attractions. Alaska is a destination where it is helpful to have some time to spare. The landscapes are so beautiful that it is sometimes worth taking the time to enjoy rather than rushing from place to place.

In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels. Wherever you go, you will want to take your camera with you to capture the action and great scenery. Some of the great winter attractions are the Northern Lights and the Aurora Borealis.

There are several places in Alaska where you can go whitewater rafting on grade IV and V rapids. Be prepared for the ride of your life on the churning white waters. For paddlers, there are many kayaking opportunities. You can also test your skills in the white waters or opt for something a little more leisurely up the fjords or along the coast. In season, you can experience amazing whale, dolphin and orca sightings and get up close to these magnificent creatures of the sea. There are endless hiking opportunities in Alaska. Serious mountaineers travel to Alaska each year to conquer Denali which is North America’s tallest peak.
