  • First time in Alaska

    "Fantastic place. Just what we needed for our stay in Anchorage with our family of 5 adults. Laura made us feel so welcome, with homemade banana bread and wonderful breakfast foods. In addition, she added so many other nice touches to make us feel very comfortable. We loved visiting with both her and her sweet dog, Luka, but felt the freedom to come and go. We loved being able prepare our dinner after buying our seafood at the local market. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone traveling to Anchorage. So much better than staying in a hotel."

  • Like staying in a ski house

    "If you stay in VRBO properties you know how much more fun and comfortable they can be. That is really true with this cozy house, where instead of views if the slopes you are next to a small air strip with planes parked below and the Cook Inlet in the distance. Out back, the dining view is to the local mountain range's O'Malley Peak and Flat Too. The furnishings are very relaxed and reflect the pilot owner's love of all things about flight! Don't stay in a Hotel or condo when you can stay here. And by the way if you come in the summer it's a short drive or brisk walk to Anchorage GC."

    "This was so much better, and cheaper, than our gang getting hotel rooms. It's a beautiful home and very quiet. Loved being across from the zoo. Doesn't really take long to get anywhere in Anchorage so this was a great spot. Met the owner and was very pleasant. Bought groceries and had several meals here so saved money eating out. No problems at all while we were there. Wifi came in handy. If you have a large group I'd definetly stay here over the hotels."

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.
