Property description

Swiss Efficiency Accommodations - Alaskan Friendliness and a Touch of home.

Your Swiss Efficiency hosts, Verena and Rudi, originally from Central Switzerland and Germany's Black Forest, welcome world travelers to our attractive, contemporary Studio apartments accommodations. We are fluent in English, Swiss, and German, and also speak moderate French and Italian.

The Swiss Efficiency apartments consist of:
Garden Suite with queen size bed and private shower bath.
Mt.View Suite with queen size & twin size futon bed and private full bath.
You can add a twin size air mattress to either of these Suites for an additional person. We also do offer a baby crib for infants.
Both Suites are on the the garden level of our home.

We also have a private bedroom with queen size bed and full bath upstairs, which we rent in connection with the Suites at a reasonable rate.
The apartments are the ideal arrangement for short or long stays in Anchorage, either for business or family visits. We are conveniently located close to restaurants, stores, bike trails, and city parks. EACH OF THESE CAN BE BOOKED BY SEPARATELY. Kitchenette in the Garden Suite and Mt.View Suite.

Our rates are based on a nightly stay. We do offer last minute rates for up to 20% discount and up to 30% longer stay discounts are always guaranteed.

Very attractive, monthly winter rates from September 16 - May 14 (sliding scale rate depends on the length of stay of up to 8 months).

Keywords: Efficiency Apartments in a quiet neighborhood with private entrance and all the amenities of home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Verena and Rudi enjoy the interaction with people from near and far. Verena being an avid traveler herself loves to talk about her and the guests travel. Verena grew up in a small town in Switzerland and therefore enjoys gardening, flowers and a house full of plants.

Why the Owner Chose Sand Lake, Anchorage, AK, USA:
We always had personal company from the USA and from Europe mainly. When we built our new home in 2001/2002, we decided to open our home to the tourists, as there always seems to be a shortage of reasonable accommodations in Anchorage during the summer months.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
We are conveniently located approx. 5 miles from the Airport, the perfect location for late arrivals by air. We are also only minutes away from highway access south and north, as well as convenient to parks, businesses, shopping, trails, universities and hospitals. Our Suites are the ideal arrangement for the discriminating traveler or for the need to travel to Anchorage for medical reasons, temporary work, or whatever the need to travel to Anchorage might be.
