About Paul and Darlene Kuriscak


TOP-rated Anchorage Vacation / Corporate Rentals

We have over 100 five-star reviews for our house and apartment rentals!

Members of Anchorage Convention & Visitors Bureau DBA Visit Anchorage

When we travel, we have high expectations for accommodations and service. As owner hosts we set high standards to assure our guests enjoy their stay.

As a young boy, Paul was awed by a photo of Alaska's Mt. McKinley (Denali) and determined to visit Alaska. At age 17 his dream came true. Now after 40 plus years here working as a biologist, hunting and fishing this great land, Alaska's majestic scenery and amazing wildlife continue to awe him.

When Darlene isn't managing our Anchorage rentals, she loves designing & creating hand-tatted lace jewelry which she sells locally & online (Lacy Treasures Jewelry).

We hope we can help make your dream trip to Alaska come true, too!

Paul and Darlene Kuriscak purchased this house in 1983

If you are planning on visiting the Anchorage area and are looking for the perfect place to stay, you've found it here. The house is so warm and inviting! Very well appointed and spotless. I felt like I was in my kitchen at home. The street is nestled in a quiet, residential neighborhood and is close to all things Anchorage and beyond! We will be staying there again. Thank you Paul and Darlene!

We loved our stay at this 2 bedroom! Paul and Darlene are the perfect owners. The property is kept in immaculate shape. The kitchen is better stocked than my own! We were so cozy inside and the location is great. A perfect place to call home while you're in Anchorage. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Fort Collins, CO

Beautiful clean comfortable quiet property. It was very well maintained and fully stocked

  • 5 of 5

The owner even came to rake leaves on a Saturday. Linens were fresh and clean smelling on the comfy beds. Kitchen had everything you need. The home was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Located at the end of a quiet cul va sac, ample parking with a long driveway which was especially nice for us as we met with several home health care providers in the non stressed location and they felt safe parking their cars there. It's a family well maintained neighborhood. The overstuffed soft couch provided a warm inviting space to end the day. Lots of dishes, dinner wares, pots, pans, dish towels, bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths. Easy clean up was achieved with a large capacity washer/ dryer, brooms, swifter, and vacuum with attachments. You will certainly want to leave this home in the same condition you found it in. We were also able to enjoy a certain privacy outdoors in the fenced backyard. The grass looked like a velvety carpet. We needed to extend our trip twice and Darlene & Paul sent us links quickly and efficiently so we were able to take care of our business here. All in all we had the perfect stay.

Beautiful and Charming

  • 5 of 5

We visited Alaska for the first time and loved the home with all of the amenities. My husband and I were extremely pleased with Darlene's list of suggested places to visit and dine. The owners were very quick to respond to any of our inquiries, including those related to points of interest. The home is in a great location and a quiet neighborhood. Someday we would love to visit Alaska again and when we do, this home will be our "home away from home." Thank you, Darlene & Paul for allowing us to stay at your charming vacation rental.
