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 snow 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!

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.

Excellent Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family traveled to Alaska to meet our first granddaughter. We had our father in law with us so we needed a 2 bedroom. I searched for a place to stay other than a hotel. I came across Paul and Darlene's place and the decision was made to stay there just based on their pictures. The house was amazing, the accommodations were perfect, the house was well appointed. We had a wonderful stay in Alaska, after long days of visiting with family and sight seeing it was great to know we had a beautiful home to come back to. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was like being in my own kitchen, we had everything we needed. The house was spotless! The house is so warm and cozy. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a place to stay to seriously consider staying here, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Paul and Darlene for making our time in Alaska just that much better.
