Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay, everything was just as it said in the description. It was perfectly quiet, I'm sure it was my first stay in Anchorage that I did not 1 time hear a siren at night. Jake and Tara are very accommodating and helpful. I'm sure we will choose this again.

Although it is a basement apartment it was clean, dry and excellent accommodations.

  • 5 of 5

Windows had great shades for letting in and keeping out the daylight for a summer stay in Anchorage. Having the full kitchen, outdoor seating areas with a yard and comfortable living room made this apartment perfect for resting after exploring and hiking all day.

This stay far exceeded our exoectations! Our experience was great. The bed is the best. Apartment had everything we needed. We came to visit our daughter and son-in-law who are military and we were not far from base. Close to wonderful restaurants and activities. Tara and Jacob are kind and helpful hosts, we will definitely return as our family is there through 2018. Thank you Jacob and Tara

Cute apartment

  • 5 of 5

Cute, well furnished, well decorated, and clean apartment. The bed is very soft and surprisingly very comfortable. I usually wake up with a sore back, neck or hips when sleeping in a strange bed but I never did. I loved the walkin shower in the bathroom and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast and dinner (when we ate in). Even with how close it was to Chilkoot Charlie's it was very quiet. We stayed here a week and it was the perfect central location to everywhere we wanted to go. The bikes were great to borrow. I wish we had time to use them more. The appartment is very close to the bike path that runs along the water. I would definitely recommend going there. One recommendation is to bring your sleep mask if traveling in the summer when the sun is alway up, there are only blinds on the windows (only one of the windows in the bedroom also had a curtain). I've always been one to wake up with the sun (unlike my hubby) and I was glad I brought my mask. I would highly recommend this place if you are staying in Anchorage.

Highly recommend staying here!

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and clean. Close to many amenities and downtown Anchorage. Nice little fenced yard in the back was wonderful for my 2 little kids to run around and play. The owners are very accommodating and always available to answer any questions you may have.
