Great home in a quiet neighborhood feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

Marcy and Ryan were great hosts. It is a fantastic little set up in a quiet neighborhood and great location. The place is fully stocked with everything you would need. It was especially nice to have some fresh coffee sitting on the counter. The only thing you need to bring is your sense of adventure Anchorage is a great place with so many things to do nearby. Try to take a drive to Potters Marsh, you can drive a little further to the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center. On the way back to Anchorage look for the belugas in the waters of Turnagain Arm.

Thanks again guys for making our trip the best!

Super clean and comfy!! Pictures DO NOT do this place justice!

  • 5 of 5

I travel monthly and always use rental sites like VRBO for my accommodations. That being said, this was the cleanest by far and one of the most comfortable places I have ever stayed. The owners are also very nice and accommodating. The entire place, as well patio and jacuzzi space, are much larger than the pictures lead on. The neighborhood is very peaceful and beautiful, surrounded with large tress and little traffic noise. I had relatives renting in Anchorage at the same time as I (we were there for a wedding) and this area was much more beautiful and quiet than other areas of Anchorage despite it's proximity to the airport. I highly recommend this rental! It definitely will stay on my favorites list because I am not done with Alaska yet!

Great home base

  • 4 of 5

Myself, my husband and my father-in-law came to Alaska for a wedding. We spent a week exploring from Homer and Seward to DeNali and this place was perfect. We had comfortable beds and a hot tub to relax sore muscles. The house was clean in a quiet neighborhood in a price range we could afford. The washer and dryer was a plus. We would stay there again if we ever make the trek to Alaska again.

Affordable and clean

  • 3 of 5

We were initially put off with having to make arrangements to get the key upon arrival. (We had been used to other homeowners using keypads and key lockboxes to make it easy.) Once we finally met up with the owner, it was somewhat exhausting listening to the list of things we had to do...such as: making sure the fridge door was closed all the way, making sure the shower door closed entirely, adding chemicals to the hot tub if we used it, reminded us not to lose the key as the previous renters lost the key. We were even offered to buy some discount movie thing at a cheap rate. After a long drive, we just wanted to come in and rest.

Once we unloaded our bags and went and made a spare key for the owners, which we were not reimbursed for, we were finally able to relax. We found the home clean and well stocked with toiletries and kitchenware. The furniture was comfortable and the beds very comfortable. It has easy access to Kincaid Park, as well as all kinds of shopping and the airport. I would recommend this affordable place.

Owner's Response: We apologize (owners Marcy and Ryan) for the way that you were greeted on your first day of stay with us. Making your stay as comfortable as possible is our first priority. Some of the instructions of course could have been glossed over, but overall they were given to make your time spent in our rental more comfortable. We are looking into posting instructions around the place especially regarding the hot tub. Maintenance of that is of the utmost importance for the health of all who come to enjoy it. We try our best to give our renters the most private and relaxing stay, so we keep the small and easy maintenance to you. We are always looking for ways to improve our client's stay here, so I thank you for your constructive criticism. I (Marcy) personally did not know that you weren't reimbursed for the key, that you graciously offered to make for us. We'd like to ensure you are reimbursed for it. I'll be in contact with you regarding arrangement for reimbursement. Thank you for your review! We hope you'll decide to stay with us in the future.
