About the Property
Charming historical 1950's building across the street from the Hilton Hotel
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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Across the street from the Hilton Hotel. In the heart of downtown Anchorage.
Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Downtown, Anchorage, AK, USA:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
