Alaska adventure

  • 5 of 5

Our hosts Cherie and Darryl were fantastic!. Their knowledge of things to do and local history was very helpful. They went the extra mile to accommodate us and to make our stay pleasant and memorable. The apartment had all the amenities we needed and was very clean and comfortable. We would recommend this accommodation to any of our friends from the Lower 48.

What a relief - home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

As the Regional Director of a company with facilities in Anchorage, my corporate team was housed in Cherie's apartments, homes, and suites. It was extremely important for my team to be well taken care of while under the added stress of being away from their homes for various time frames; some short, others months at a time. After having been booked into hotels which were less than stellar –picture worn carpets; noisy housekeeping outside paper thin doors in the early morning hours; groups of teens running up and down hallways; cigarette smoked drenched rooms and poor service- we went on a mad search for better accommodations. This proved to be difficult in Anchorage’s tourist season. Fortunately, we found our Haven. Each of the apartments is truly a home away from home. The beautiful apartments were extremely clean and well kept. They had plenty of room and anything you could possibly need. The gardens are truly stunning with fountains and ponds with plenty of seating to read a book under the Midnight Sun.

The owner of the apartment went out of her way to ensure we were all very well taken care of. The owner even drove us to places where we were able to see moose, bear, and whales. Whatever we needed, we just needed to ask and it would magically appear. There is no better place in Anchorage where you can stay and feel like you are at home. If you are looking for a top notch place to stay that is clean, safe and where you are catered to, then this is your place! My team has been so happy here that we extended our stays for months and would not hesitate to recommend all of the properties. Each apartment has their own 'personality' but all are comfortable and beautiful.

Lovely, Comfortable Home with Marvelous Garden

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet respite and lovely hospitality look no further than Cherie's home in central Anchorage. Her place is conveniently located as a perfect jumping off point for Anchorage, Seward, and points beyond. Appointed like a funky boutique hotel, you won't be with the disappointed with the plush, comfortable bedding, the classic European-style bath, or the comfortable sitting area perfect for decompressing. This basement-level apartment has a full kitchen and a private entrance for guests. Strolling through her beautiful gardens gives you an immediate sense of whimsy and authenticity. This is the real deal, folks. If you want to stay with a family who lives in and loves everything Alaska, this us the perfect place for you to stay.

Highly Recommend this Beautiful Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Alaska was amazing! Cherie made our stay one of the best and comfortable stays we've ever had while traveling. I travel a lot and so it is very relaxing to have a quiet and homey place to stay after business. We felt right at home and had no worries about what to expect during our stay.

I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to Alaska! Cherie and Darryl were willing to go out of their way to make sure that our stay was perfect! We booked this apartment a few months before arriving in Anchorage. Cherie was extremely helpful in sending us tips and recommendations with what to do between and after our business meetings. She was amazingly patient with all of my questions. I've stayed in many other vacation rentals but none have offered the time and attention to our needs as much as Cherie gave.

We were happily surprised to find breakfast items in the fridge when we arrived on a red-eye flight, making it unnecessary to run to the grocery store right away. The apartment was very comfortable. We looked forward to a good night's sleep in the luxurious King-size bed with scrumptious, soft linen and enough pillows to make my husband, who has back issues, comfortable. It was a treat to have fresh lavender and mint on the pillows.

The kitchen had everything we needed to make full meals. We especially liked coming into the gate, brushing against the enormous pots of mint and herbs. and enjoying the gorgeous flowers and white lights. We felt comfortable and safe.

I don't think our trip would have been half as nice as it was without Cherie's help. The listing description and photos didn't do the apartment justice. The home was immaculate and quiet.

Cherie and her husband, Darryl, have lived in Alaska for a long time so they know of great places to travel within your time frames. We even saw a moose roaming in front of the house gate!

Our security deposit was returned promptly.

I would highly recommend this apartment.

Spacious, Clean, and Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My Fiance and I stayed with Cherie during our trip to Alaska. We were in Anchorage for a few days and the place was very accommodating. Cherie provided us with great tips on where to go in Alaska and what to do. The apartment was clean and well decorated. The king size bed was a lively retreat after a long day out exploring Anchorage. The front garden is absolutely beautiful and it was nice to be able to sit out there in the evening. I would definitely recommend staying here for any travels in the Anchorage area.

Frustrated Traveler - Would not recommend

Frustrated Traveler - Would not recommend

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Would not recommend due to last minute changes, poor communication, no reimbursement. I booked with Cherie after reading all the prior reviews; was traveling alone to visit my daughter in the Wrangell-St. Elias Mountains and had never been to Alaska before. Needed two days (8/27 & 28th) in Anchorage and then again (9/1/2016) prior to flight home. Looked for the personal touch and had great, timely communication as we set things up - I looked to support private vs corporate housing. Final arrangements included flight info, agreed payment, and shuttle to/from airport (3 times); Cherie indicated it was "no problem" when inquiry was made or would have planned on cabs. On day of arrival, sometime during my flight, I received a text owners decided to "get away " as other guests had cancelled. Assured someone would pick me up at the airport, I agreed to continue with plans, and gave payment in full to driver as instructed along with hefty tip to be used for agreed upon transport to and from airport for each day as discussed. Tipped driver separately. When I walked into the no windows basement located below the owners home, I found a note from the owner telling me they would not be providing transportation, "should call a cab early" for movement. Location is in a residential area outside of Anchorage and I realized it would not work for me, but it was now late, I traveled 12+ hours and stayed one night first night too frustrated to discuss. I did not sleep well hearing someone walking just above the bedroom. Contacted Cherie next morning to try to work something out, was told it was too early, please do not communicate/ask help of the friend (who was staying in the house, something I learned as I attempted to leave). Owner agreed to email me once she was back in Anchorage. Super frustrated as I was locked in, missed the first cab as there was no available way to exit. Had to knock on door of home to ask to get out - this is when I saw original driver who had all my payment (cash was arrangement). Cherie could have easily worked something out prior to me leaving residence as I requested but took attitude of not wanting to deal with matter. At this time I am out for 2 nights and the airport travel money . I have kept trying to contact (10 days) and still have not heard a word. Owner has phone, email, and mailing address This did not ruin my trip to Alaska but it certainly set me back

Owner's Response: You said our property was "lovely", that our friend was so nice picking you up from the airport, and you appreciated all the help we gave you. For you to leave a negative review with blatant lies to a family who treated you so kindly and then not pay them is beyond words. Karma will take care of the rest.
