About Michele Palatas
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I moved to Alaska in 1998 to work in Deadhorse-Prudhoe Bay, in the Arctic on the Beaufort Sea. I quickly became enchanted with this beautiful place we call Alaska! If you love the outdoors, this is the place!
Michele Palatas purchased this House in 2002
Why Michele Palatas chose Fairview
I purchased this duplex in 2002 along with two more, and made four of the units, fully furnished guesthouses.You may rent 1217 Guesthouse and the Cottage (912285) and the Cabin (3584196) if you require more room. Since then I have had the pleasure of welcoming guests from all over the world to our city nestled between Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains.
What makes this House unique
The convenience of being near to downtown and midtown, the Seward Highway heading south and the Glenn Highway heading north, make this a perfect location to get out and experience Anchorage and nearby attractions. Built in 1951 to accommodate personnel at the first airstrip, Merrill Field, the guesthouse has been completely renovated in the past couple years.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Attention to detail remarkable
Michele has thought of everything - it felt like I was at home - rather than in someone else’s home. She is that on it with the way she has set up the scene.
Solid, comfy, quiet place close to everything in Anchorage. You won’t be disappointed.
absolutely fantastic little get away
My wife and I enjoyed our stay in this cozy little quiet home. We are already ready to book another stay. The home is nice and clean and the bed was very comfortable.Michele is so kind and helpful. We hope to come stay again soon!
Thank you for your stay! It was my pleasure having you at the Guesthouse!
I look forward to having you return to Anchorage Guesthouses when visiting Anchorage.
Stay was very nice. Had shampoos/body wash there. Even some bubble bath stuff that my wife used. Very easy to find. Definitely recommend parking on the street. If you park in the back you have to walk through other peoples yard to get to it.
Thank you for your five star review! It was my pleasure having you at the Guesthouse!
Central location is really convenant for doctors appointments. Michele was veary pleasant and acommodating to work with. Considering the short notice it worked out great. THANK YOU very much Jeff
Very comfortable home and conveniently located
First, Michele was easy to work with and accommodating. Her home is well equipped, modern and comfortable. She has plenty of dishes, storage containers for packing day trips, plenty of shampoo, conditioner and lotion stocked. There was laundry detergent for us to use. The bed was very comfortable. The house is only 15 minutes from the airport, less than ten minutes to downtown. The neighborhood was quiet. My wife and I were very happy with the accommodations for our October trip. I would certainly rent here again.
Thank you for your patronage! Thank you for your kind and generous review! And I hope that I may have the pleasure of your company again at one of my Anchorage Guest Houses!
Kind regards, Michele.
