About Owner

Eve grew up right here on the block, and in fact, much of her family still lives in the Vista Way neighborhood, with her mom still located just a few acres away! She loves reading, music, camping, riding snow mobiles and tries to make time for travel, going to live theatre, and Sunday drives.

Owner purchased this House in 2012

Why Owner chose Ester

My brother designed and built this house. I feel like I have a dream kitchen, and take a lot of pride in my brother's tile work throughout the house. We hope you can come and enjoy the space, the comfort, and the privacy available at Vista Valley Guest House, just a gorgeous 15 minute drive from Fairbanks.

                                                          Large home in gorgeous setting

                                                          Cathy P.

                                                          Our group of 9 adults (from 4 different families) had plenty of room in this large home in a gorgeous setting. Having three full bathrooms was especially nice with our varied group. The big and well-equipped kitchen made cooking together fun, although the table and matching chairs only seated 5 people and made dinnertime pretty crowded (hence the 4 instead of 5 star rating). We were grateful for the 4 extra folding chairs provided upon request (but couldn’t use the round folding table because there was not enough room to add it anywhere except in the living room).

                                                          The setting is beautiful, and with only a minor glitch with the part suggesting using GPS for the very beginning step, the directions to the location worked well. We were utterly delighted with the “resident” moose, who spent most of the weekend right outside the windows munching on young tree shoots!

                                                          Wi-fi worked perfectly. Communication with hosts was fine, and we were very grateful to have our checkout time extended when we asked.

                                                          Ideal to see the aurora from the house

                                                          Kazumi H.

                                                          I spent shooting the aurora with very comfortable facilities.

                                                          Ideal to see the aurora from the house and wonderful landscape.

                                                          Great location and owner

                                                          John C.

                                                          Spent thanksgiving weekend with 5 adults at this house. Great location outside the city only 15 minutes to town. Very quiet and saw the northern lights from our deck. House had a great kitchen and sitting area to relax The owner is fabulous very responsive and great to work with. This property is highly recommended.

                                                          Beautiful view. The home was better then what we were expecting.

                                                          Vasco V.

                                                          From the view to the heated kitchen floors this place was everything we wanted for a weekend stay for the 6 of us.

                                                          It is very nice and clean

                                                          Jen W.

                                                          It is very nice and clean.

                                                          Brenda B.Illinois

                                                          We enjoyed our stay. It is remote enough to be perfectly quiet and close enough to Fairbanks to be in the city in minutes. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and baths. Beautiful view from the big front porch. We would definitely stay here again.
