About Paul and Darlene Kuriscak

When we travel, we have high expectations for accommodations and service, so as owner hosts we set high standards to assure our guests have the best stay for their dream vacations. With almost 100 five-star guest reviews, our guests can book with confidence.

When Darlene isn't managing our Anchorage rentals, she loves designing & creating handtatted SNOW LACE jewelry which she sells locally & online.

We hope your visit to Anchorage AK makes your dreams come true, too!

Paul and Darlene Kuriscak purchased this house in 1983

Why Paul and Darlene Kuriscak chose Anchorage

I purchased this home in Anchorage in the early 80's back when it sat on the outer edge of town bordering wilderness. Now it is situated in a safe, family-friendly residential neighborhood, but you still might happen to see one of our moose wandering the streets.

Centrally located within minutes of shopping, dining, recreation, UAA, hospitals and highway access. This duplex style ranch house called a zero-lot-line shares one wall with our long-time neighbor. The fenced backyard offers a safe place to bbq and let the kids play.

We offer easy and convenient coded access for late night check-in and PRIVACY. However, if you need anything we are only a phone call away.

Cleanliness and sanitation is a top priority so we do not allow pets to insure a sanitary and allergy-free environment for every guest.

We support our military. Ask about our military special.

What makes this house unique

Convenient central location close to hospitals and University UAA and highway access. 10-15 minutes to downtown or airport

This recently updated house, convenient to the airport and downtown, is centrally located for local attractions and excellent day trips south to the Kenai Peninsula and north to places like historical Talkeetna.

Located within minutes of miles of multi-use trails, BLM land, parks, recreation area, golf courses, water park, mini-golf, paint ball, shopping mall, grocery store, and dining.

A Nice, Homey Holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in this was an ideal place to stay for 8 nights! It is located in a very cozy, quiet neighborhood which was perfect for a family Christmas holiday yet close to shopping and restaurants.

The kitchen is well-appointed and we were able to prepare a feast and seat 10. The wifi and tv selection were reliable and simple to operate. Overall, we recommend this unit for anyone looking for a quiet, clean and comfy place to stay while in Anchorage.

Our stay in Anchorage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while we were in Anchorage and it was perfect. The owners were great and easy to contact. The house is located in a very quiet neighborhood and close to everything. It was exceptionally clean. We have used Home Away many times and this was by far the nicest home we have stayed in. Thank you Paul and Darlene.

Outstanding Visit

  • 5 of 5

This house worked well for the three of us visiting Anchorage. Well situated for the hiking activities we had planned. We saw 7 moose in Kincade Park right from the trail. You must drive to matanuska glacier, a must see! We went to Whittier for a glacier cruise and saw a humpback whale and visited the Wildlife Conservation Center in Portage. Seward was nice and Valdez was foggy but saw many water falls near that area. The house slept four adults comfortably and was very clean. Groceries and food are close and we had everything we needed if we cooked at the home. I would stay or recommend this home to others that are in the Anchorage area!

Perfect beautiful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 2 weeks and it was clear when you stepped in, the house was well maintained and very clean. The kitchen was stocked with all the basic supplies needed. We loved coming home in the evenings to comfortable beds and there is plenty of storage space in the closets. The lawn was well kept, you can tell the owners take care of their property. We even enjoyed a bbq in the backyard. The neighborhood is quiet and close to everything you would need. It is a lovely property and I would definitely recommend staying here. Thank you for the hospitality!

Very well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Our sons and their families stayed here for a week in July. They said it was clean and comfortable with lots to offer (larger washer/dryer; expanded TV channels; comfortable beds). Photos are accurate. The house is on a cul de sac so through traffic is minimal; but it was summertime and the long daylight hours prompt neighborhood activity well past some bedtimes -- that was the only drawback given the group included a young child and some light sleepers. A large fan or white noise phone app could have remedied. Other than that -- the place worked very well for the group.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback which is appreciated. The house is actually located at the end of a dead-end street not a cul-de-sac so there is no through traffic. We are sorry for some noise experienced during this July stay which in AK means midnight sun. The city's quiet hours are until 10 pm so if anyone experiences noise after that we would appreciate notification so that we can address it right away. We are always available by text or phone. We have added in a white-noise spa machine for light sleepers just in case because our goal is for each guest to enjoy their stay.
