Why Beverly Grogan chose Turnagain

Our home is located historic Turnagain neighborhood. Located a two minute walk from the coastal trail with views of Mt. Denali, Foraker, Susitna and Hunter. It is just three quarter mile to beautiful Westchester Lagoon which maintains duck, bird and fish habitat. It is an easy walk on the trail to downtown. Heading the other direction on the coastal trail, one might see moose in the woods and beautiful views and sandy beach at Pt. Woronzof.

What makes this studio unique

Close to airport, bus, coastal trail, and downtown makes this setting convenient. With a private entrance and off street parking, it still has the homey feeling being an upstairs studio within a home. It has all the comforts and conveniences of home, i.e., internet, cable tv, and washer/dryer. There are beautiful Alaskana pictures on the wall with a growing library of Alaskan books and videos available. It is also a money saver because you can entertain yourself and cook at home!

Very comfortable and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great communication before my arrival and I received a warm welcome once there. I loved the location and was pleased to find it was so close to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail!

I had everything I needed and will definitely stay again on future visits!

Owner's Response: Matt and Ashley were great guests. So quiet, I hardly knew they were home. Took good care of the place, and left lots of extra goodies for next guests. Thank you Ashley for your lovey handmade gift. Would welcome you two back again anytime.

very nice apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice apartment (nicely appointed, gets a lot of natural light) on a quiet residential street but very close to a main road so convenient for getting to other places quickly. Also a very short walk to a particularly nice section of the coastal trail. And the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this unit and would definitely rent it again if I'm lucky enough to come back to Anchorage.
