  • Michigan friends have an awesome time!

    "three couples from Michiganspent 10 days here. the house was very nice clean and accommodating to making it feel just like home. The river was easy to get to and very nice that we did not have to fight the crowd to fish. we could fish at anytime and we are taking home over 250 pounds of fish! I would definitely recommend these accommodations!"

  • Great location in Seward

    "We certainly enjoyed our stay at Harbor Lights Condo. It is the perfect location in Seward, within walking distance to most everything, or just a short drive. It's fun being right in the harbor, my husband really enjoyed talking to all of the fisherman trying to catch Coho in the nearby stream. The morning views of the harbor and mountains were spectacular. The condo is clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. The kitchen is large and well-equipped and the gas grill convenient. The owners are on-sight and very helpful. As others have mentioned, the condo is three stories, so those that might have trouble negotiating stairs may want the heads up. Also, the upstairs bedroom has a large window type opening that overlooks the living room. There are shutters on the window, but sound does travel. It didn't bother us, but romantic getaways should consider themselves forewarned..lol."

  • Cozy stay

    "We rented the downstairs unit because our basketball team was staying upstairs. It was cozy and worked out great as we could leave the door open for the boys to go back and forth. Only problem we had was someone in another unit was locking the deadbolt on us, but we left a note and that solved it! Overall cozy and plenty of towels, blankets, etc. washer and dryer was convenient too. Owner also allowed us to have late checkout, which was great!"

Getting to Alaska Vacation Rentals

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

Worth, Atlanta, Seattle and San Francisco. From Canada, there are frequent flights from Vancouver and Toronto. Alaska is popular vacation destination for travelers from Europe and the Far East. There are regular commercial flights from Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and also Frankfurt in Germany. From Anchorage, you can get domestic flights to your destination.

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.
