  • Patti & Steve from AZ

    "This was our 1st trip to AK and I have to say that Allan & Larry made us feel as if we were family! The condo is in a great location, it's quiet, clean & safe! We stayed for 2 weeks and left the condo empty for about 4 days while we explored AK and had no issues at all. We will visit AK again and we'll be calling Allan & Larry! :-)"

  • A definite "home away from home"

    "This was our first time ever visiting Alaska. We travelled to visit our son serving at Ft. Richardson and we wanted a place that we could call "home" for the week. It far exceeded our expectations! What a wonderful and loved home! Tom has gone to great lengths to make this a place that people would want to come back to, we certainly will call him if we return in the future! Thanks Tom!"

  • comfortable home away from home for the marathon

    "We stayed at Jill's rental for a week. It was a comfortable home away from home while we were in town to run the Mayor's midnight sun marathon. We had 5 adults in our party and found the rental spacious for all of us. The house was conveniently location for the marathon as well as for a central base for day trips from Anchorage. Only negative was short showers to have enough hot water for all 5 of us. We started to stagger times in the shower and that worked out fine. Jill greeted us at the rental and gave us goid recommendations for dinner and places to see. She startex our stay out nicely. I Would stay there again if I find myself in Anchorage again. Thanks Jill."

Anchorage Travel Tips

Stay in the Heart of the Wilderness at Anchorage Vacation Rentals

Anchorage, with its international airport, is the perfect place to serve as a base for an Alaskan vacation. As the modern world continually eats into the world’s wilderness areas, Alaska has managed to find a balance between the modern and wilderness. Because of this, there is no place quite like this anywhere on earth. Anchorage cabins are found around the 21st century city, in the heart of the wilderness.

Breathe in Clean Fresh air at Anchorage Cabins

Alaska is all about the great outdoors. Visitors to Anchorage vacation rentals come here for the experiences of real outdoor life. Many visitors find the variety of watersports a great part of their vacation. Don’t choose between racing down the river, clinging to the raft as it bounces through the rapids, or a leisurely paddle down a silent stretch of water surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of the wilderness while you search for otters. Do both! Then take a kayak out and go in search of the local Puffins. Whether you are a die-hard fisherman or have yet to try, pick up a rod and head out. Fishermen here throw back ones that elsewhere would get place of honor on the wall. There is over 34,000 miles of coast and endless rivers and lakes to try. The two main catches here are king salmon and halibut. Catching dinner is so much more fun than buying it at the grocery store.

From mild to wild, the skiing and hiking trails are designed to suit anyone. Gentle walks through the forests to mountain hikes where the reward is the stunning views, there is something for all. There area around Anchorage also has a wide variety of biking trails. There is also the unique experience of glacier hiking.

Watch how the Bears Fish, Then try it Yourself

Other than the year-round outdoor activities, visitors flock here to see sights unlike anywhere else. And there are a variety of once-in-a-lifetime trips to be made here. For a close up look at Alaska’s uniqueness, visitors should take a cruise to see the glaciers and wildlife. Getting up close to the towers of ice is a unique experience. One of the best ways to really understand the beauty of the environment is to fly over it. For locals, it can be an everyday occurrence but for visitors, it is a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

No one should leave Alaska without coming face to face with a bear. Appreciate these huge, wild creatures in their own habitat at Denali National Park. Or take a specific trip and go bear-viewing at Brooks River Falls and watch the bears fish. That really is an incredible sight. Enjoy the thrill of dog sledding and take the chance to race through the forests, tucked into a sled pulled by beautiful Huskies. What a uniquely Alaskan experience is available close to Anchorage cabins.
