About the property

Our newly remodeled rental property is located just minutes by foot from the Anchorage Parkstrip, Museum, Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, the 5th Avenue Mall, ConocoPhillips Tower, and many other wonderful restaurants, shops, and businesses. Our property is located in a quiet and well established neighborhood and is near bus stops and main city arteries, making you a short car ride from all of Anchorage. Free street parking in front of property. We value comfort and quality and that is how we modeled our rentals. The Parkstrip includes tennis courts, a basketball court, baseball fields, open fields for soccer or yoga, areas to run/walk, a volleyball court, and an ice rink in the winter. Owners are true Alaskans that love the outdoors and will be happy to tell you fishing stories, as well as our favorite local eateries and attractions.

We can sometimes arrange a 3BR unit if booked in advance.

About The Owner

My husband and I grew up in all of the wonder and beauty of Alaska. We met while attending college in Anchorage. I loved salsa dancing. He pretended to love salsa dancing. The rest is history.

We are avid fly fishers and enjoy spending much of our summers camping and hiking with our two 'furbabies', Delilah and Steeler.

What makes this townhome unique

Location, location, location! This property is beautiful and could not be in a better location. Renters have the luxury of being in the heart of Downtown Anchorage while still being able to enjoy all of the things that attract people to visit Alaska. It's the best of both worlds!

Fabulous Property! Wonderful Hosts! Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Anchorage for business and normally use hotels. Glad we went out of our comfort zone and booked this property. It is conveniently located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to restaurants and coffee houses. The apartment was very well appointed, quite large, and offered everything we needed and more. We really appreciated how comfortable Tim and Lily made us feel and how willing they were to share their knowledge of the area. Especially liked the fishing stories! Nice people! So much so that we are hoping to reserve with them later this summer. This place was a great find and we would recommend it to anyone travelling to Anchorage.

We loved our stay in this rental.

  • 5 of 5

WOW! This was our 6th trip to the state and we had only stayed in hotels until now. This unit by far surpassed the accommodations of any high end hotel downtown. The unit is well appointed with comfortable beds, seating, linens and appliances. The space is larger than appears in the photographs and very roomy for four guests. The rental is in a quiet neighborhood 15 minuets walking distance to the heart of downtown Anchorage and easy access to the main roads going out of the city. The yard well groomed with a nice setting area th enjoy the endless days. Tim and Lily were gracious hosts and reflect the best of Alaskan hospitality. We will stay here on our next trip and yes I would reccommend this to a friend.

Very satisfied New Yorkers in Anchorage for Summer Solstice

We decided to rent this unit from Tim instead of a traditional hotel set up. We couldn't have been any happier w/the accommodations. It was within walking distance to shops and restaurants and the start of the Mayor's Midnight Sun Half Marathon, which was important to us since we didn't rent a car. Taxis were very easy to get and always came quickly. We rented bikes to take on the Coastal trail from Pablo's, we also had many good meals at Humpy's a local spot for good food and fun. The unit was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. We were able to enjoy some relaxation time in the backyard as well, as there were some lawn chairs for us to sit on. Alaska exceeded my expectations all around. I knew it was a beautiful state, but now I can recommend the visit to friends and family.. and I'd recommend they stay in this unit. Tim and Lily were very accommodating.

My family and I traveled to Alaska to fish this summer from Kansas. We spent one week on the Kenai Peninsula and then returned to Anchorage to this attractive downtown duplex VRBO. We had 3 nights to enjoy the sights and activities in the area - but we took full advantage of staying in the downtown area. We rented bikes on 4th Avenue and rode one afternoon on the Coastal Trail, had dinner at Simon & Seaforts, shopped at Sagaya Market daily for fresh pastries and coffee drinks (made to order), and just enjoyed being near the downtown Park Strip.

The VRBO was recently updated with new flooring and amenities - all very attractive and comfortable. Our teenage sons did not want to get out of bed one morning - the mattresses were just too comfortable!

Tim & Lily are kind and thoughtful hosts. When our phone call "dropped" on a few occasions upon arrival - they drove over to the property and introduced themselves and welcomed us to the area. I was born and spent 20 years living in Anchorage and I truly appreciated their warm Alaskan spirit of hospitality.

This is the unit we WILL return to rent in the future. The price is affordable and the value is well worth the investment. We whole-heartedly recommend this VRBO to families with teenagers, couples traveling together or perhaps a group of friends taking a trip together.

The photos posted on-line portray the unit nicely. The rental has a very clean presentation to it, and is larger in the family/living room and kitchen area than the pictures show. The flat screen TV is huge. We do not watch a lot of TV - so we didn't need that. But if you had time to watch a DVD together - it's a comfortable viewing area.

The owners were prompt in refunding our damage deposit after we returned home from our vacation. The details re: their policies are well defined in the rental agreement.

Thanks again for making our stay such a wonderful and memorable one! We appreciated the special personal touches upon our arrival - the chocolates in the bedrooms, the coffee to brew, and the bagels and cream cheese. You went over and above to welcome us. Best to you both.

A gem of a stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to have found this beautiful apartment with such comfortable beds and excellent Wi-Fi connection. I admit we waited too long to make a reservation for an Anchorage stay. We had no idea that vacation homes and hotels would be so difficult to find with most of them fully booked for our dates and those hotels that were not booked were charging around $400 a night. With a group of four, that was way over our budget. The owners, Lily and Tim, had just listed their place and we snapped it up after they quoted us such a reasonable rate. We didn’t want to extend our stupidity! Lily and Tim were patient with our questions and gave us lots of tips. Did I mention the location?! Wow! The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood in the downtown area. There was plenty of parking for our two rental cars. We were within walking distance of the large, Downtown Park Strip, where there were festivals and a race while we were there. We walked to many of the restaurants and shops recommended by the owners and we spent some time enjoying the Coastal Trail. Our group liked walking to the Sagaya City Market every morning for our coffees and pastries. It is a great apartment.
