Charming historical 1950's building across the street from the Hilton Hotel
Cozy, modern clean studio with a full kitchen (granite counter tops) and plenty of room for your clothes. The closet is quite large. King size bed, and a loveseat in the main room. Large shower, hardwood flooring, flat screen TV with cable and internet.
The location just does not get much better than this. Walking distance to everything great about Downtown Anchorage. You just will not need a car. (If you have a car, you can arrange parking though "Easy Park" in the "Chinook" lot, which is right next door to the building) You can walk down to the train station, or right next door to the Saturday Market. The Iditarod race starts on 4th avenue, just one block up. Fur Rondy Carnival is next door. Get your morning espresso just steps out the main lobby door. There is also a sushi restaurant just steps out of the main lobby.
The unit is small (387 square feet) but if you like the freedom to cook some of your own meals, the kitchen has everything you need. It is perfect for two people.
This charming old (security) building is home to unit owners who have lived in the building for many years. They take pride in ownership, and respect 'quiet time' in the building. Exterior doors lock at 7:00PM, (so you will need to keep your security key with you) and parties do not really work in this building, so that means everybody gets a peaceful night's sleep, and everybody wakes up happy in the morning (grin) .
Breakfast is served on weekends at F Street Station, they have the most wonderful Eggs Benedict, and you can walk there in two minutes, if you do not feel like cooking your own breakfast.
Should you like to see the outside of the building, please just look on Google Maps and hit the "street view" option, so you can take in the whole, wonderful street. The address is 525 W 3rd Ave, and the building is green. Sadly, there is not much of a view, from our unit, we are next door to a building that blocks it, for the most part, but you can see part of the Ship Creek area, and you can walk to the action in minutes.
We hope you enjoy it, as we do.

About Carrie Sandvik
We live in Eagle River, just about 13 miles from Anchorage. We love to travel, and when we do, we prefer to stay in a place that has a kitchen, because we prefer to make our own breakfast, and enjoy an entire pot of coffee before we leave to go enjoy the daily activities of vacation. We bought this unit so that we, ourselves, could enjoy the city. We have had a great time finding furnishings, and artwork to make this unit feel cozy. We are still looking for fun items to decorate the place, so if you see changes in the pictures, you will know we just found something new that we liked better. We are new at this, but we have tried to stock the place with all needed items. If we missed something, we hope our guests will let us know, so we can do better. We hope our guests will enjoy staying here, as much as we do.

Why Carrie Sandvik chose Downtown
Why this property? Well, we just love this old historical building. We adore the residents who occupy this place, and the pride that the owners take in this charming old place. We love everything about downtown Anchorage and enjoy our own weekends going out to downtown events. We love being walking distance to everything, unless I am wearing heels or it is really cold. In that case, we call a taxi to take us the short distances we are going. There is usually a taxi directly across the street at the Hilton Hotel, and they are more than happy to drive just a few blocks.
What makes this Apartment unique
There is a tour planning business in the building, on the street level and they keep very late hours. We have not visited the shop, but we walk past it often, and it is open late. There is a gift shop in the Hilton Hotel, selling small necessities and personal hygiene supplies, snacks and soft drinks. It is quite convenient being so close.

Nice efficient apartment within walking distance to everything. Carrie was super responsive.
Great fun at Iditarod and run with the reindeer!
Thanks so much! Please come back and stay in the condo again.
Very nice apartment had everything we needed
Carrie was very nice , we had a great trip . The spot is located in walking distance to almost anything .
Comfort & Convenience
What a wonderful place to stay for our Anchorage visit, no regrets. This place was convenient to everything in town and, since Anchorage isn't that large, it's easily accessible to all other areas. A few minutes and you're out of town. The comfort of the mattress was really a great addition to the comfort of the accommodations. The host is kind, informative and accessible. When/if we come back we will try to stay here again. The shower takes 6.3 minutes to warm up, plan on it; this should be an added bonus to everyone... slow down. 😊
Great property, great studio, located in the heart of downtown in a secure building.
This studio was perfect! Modern furnishings, very clean, comfortable, the bed was nice and comfy, so were the linens, well stocked kitchen for basic cooking, had everything I needed to make for a comfortable, enjoyable stay.
It is a secure building located right in the heart of downtown. Easy walking to food, coffee, shopping...
The train station is nearby, so it woke me a few times but its not bad.
Carrie was great as well, quick to reply, easy to communicate with and helpful.
I would highly recommend staying here and I will definitely be going back to rent this again.
Perfect for our stay in Anchorage.
This studio is perfectly located within walking distance of many of Anchorage's attractions. The owner was quick to help when we had questions. The space is well designed, easy to use and served us well.
Thank you Carrie.
Lovely Condo Great Value
The condo was spotlessly clean and had everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Location was great with everything within walking distance including the downtown attractions, shopping, tour buses and the train station. The weekend market was just next door. Comfortable bed and a huge walkin closet.
