  • Sister's Reunion June 2014

    "This was the perfect place for our sister's vacation reunion. The house was spotless and very well stocked with everything we needed. It was so fun to sit outside by the firepit (even when it was raining and misty). Carson was an excellent host and we hope to see him again when we have another reunion in Anchorage."

  • Business CEO

    "I rented this condo while in Anchorage working for the Department of Health. We found the condo to be a perfect fit for our group. We had more than ample space to work, with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the location as we were no more than 10 minutes from any part of the city we need to be at. The beds were very comfortable, and the kitchen had everything we needed and the condo was nicely decorate. We had only 1 small issue in locating the wireless pass code, 1 phone call and the issue was resolved in 30 second! We found the owners extremely pleasant and eager to make our time in Anchorage all that it could be. We will look for this house again when in Anchorage!"

  • Greatest Experience

    "We had the most wonderful time here. Mostly due to Rocky's homey condo and his gracious help and kindness. He made sure we were well provided for and had info on all kinds of things to do in Alaska. We had originally rented a car but canceled since we found no need for it. Visitors center was a block away. Short taxi to Fred Myer got us our groceries (condo was already well stocked and very homey!) Transportation to zoo, cruises,, etc., was just outside the front door and tour office just out the front door! Great places to eat and just walk to with a great jazz band at one of the Sat/Sun festivals just outside the door. Condo was clean, safe and well maintained. Our trip would have been a great trip but Rocky's help and genuine hospitality was the icing on the cake. Sorry he doesn't have more condos to rent out. He was a very big part of our trip and hope to stay in touch with him. Let him know if he's ever around our place, please let us know. Would be honored to have him as our GUEST!"

  • Alaska Wedding

    "We had a great time. The house was the best way to go a bit bigger than we needed. We were not sure who would be coming out for the wedding. But we had space to put them up. The house made it easy we could just sit and talk about old time and meet the new I laws :-) you just can't do this in a hotel. The rooms were clean & large enough living room/kitchen where the best hang out ares. I will be doing this again thanks to all?"

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.

When planning what to take home as souvenirs or gifts, consider the beautiful handmade local clothing and toys, charming gold nugget jewelry and hand-carved ivory or jade. There is obviously a wide variety of animal skins and fur as well as seal oil candles. You may like some of the beautiful woven baskets, made from local beach grass or bark.
