About Rebecca Meyers

Hello, we're Roy and Rebecca. We are both life-long Alaskans who were raised in a remote town in Bush Alaska, accessible only by plane. We moved to Anchorage in 2006 to expand our careers, and when we also found our dream house (2 minutes away from our vacation rental). We enjoy camping, hiking, biking and exploring new trails around Anchorage with our two dogs. Yoga is another a favorite pastime (okay, maybe more for Rebecca :), and Anchorage has some great yoga studios. We love both cooking and dining out, and are always visiting Anchorage's new restaurants, fun coffee shops, and farmer's markets. We travel as often as we can!

We both stay busy with jobs we love, Roy is a safety specialist and Rebecca owns her own skin care business, but we always make time for fun.

In our travels across the US and world, we have enjoyed the ease and comfort of staying in personally-owned vacation rentals, especially when we travel with large groups of friends and family.

In 2013 we bought a cute duplex right near downtown Anchorage, and turned it into Eagle Vacation Rentals. We have had such a fun time meeting people from all over the world, and are so excited when guests get to explore our beautiful state.

We hope you enjoy Alaska as much as we do.

Why Rebecca Meyers chose Fairview

We loved this property immediately. Our home (and Rebecca's business) is just 2 minutes away from this property, and we absolutely love this area of Anchorage! It is close to everything fun & important, and is so conveniently located...we wouldn't live anywhere else. We thought others might agree. Whether you're in the mood for fine dining, movie-watching, shopping, bar hoping, or a leisurely walk on the coastal trail, everything is about 5 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

We loved this property for many reasons: the location couldn't be better; it has two cute but very different houses that are detached from one another (more privacy); it was newly renovated yet maintained some of it's original charm; the contemporary style which gives the house that 'executive, clean, and professional' feel; the fenced yard and landscaped lawn. We also love all the windows, which allow lots of natural light in if desired. We especially love that it's a great house for having an at-home barbecue in the yard with friends or meeting up with friends for dinner only minutes away.

Fantastic experience

  • 5 of 5

This little place was absolutely perfect. It is very close to everything. And Rebecca was an absolute angel. I dont think it was more that 10 minutes after contacting her about the availability when she responded. This was a last minute emergency trip for me as I had a family member going into the hospital. And her quick response made a very stressful situation much easier to handle. The little cottage was more than I needed but not knowing if other family would need to stay a day or two I decided to rent it even though it was a 2 bedroom. I had everything I could possibly need for my 10 day stay including a washer and dryer. Every single time I contacted Rebecca she would respond so quickly. When it snowed she quickly made sure someone came and plowed the driveway. And when needing extra garbage bags her dear husband brought them right over and also shoveled and extra wide path from the driveway to the door for me. I highly recommend this cute place. You will not be disappointed. I would certainly stay again if it is available on my next trip. Moments from downtown and also moments away from any shopping you might need. It was also in a very quiet area even though it’s directly across from an arena where numerous events are held. I never heard any noice from an event . I can only say it felt like home.

Functional, accessible apartment

  • 5 of 5

Don't be fooled by first impressions. The best thing about this apartment. It functions. Very nice kitchen Nice comfy beds (could use thicker comforters) but hey, nothing is perfect. Downtown 3-4 min by car. Great grocery shopping at Fred Myers 3 min away. The parking place was a plus. Would stay here again

Cute, Quiet, Clean & Great location

  • 5 of 5

Three adults stayed in this rental very comfortably. The inside was very clean and felt like home. We were attending an event at the Sullivan Arena and it couldn't have been more convenient to come and go since it was just across a parking lot. The beds were comfortable, having Wi-Fi was nice and also having a washer/dryer in the rental was fantastic. The owner was very responsive and friendly. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Great home base in Anchorage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had a nice stay here! It was great to have two bedrooms and the kitchen is really nice, with plenty of storage. I always love to have a washer and dryer on vacation too. Rebecca has done an excellent job making sure all the comforts of home are there. Laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, trash bags, lotion, shampoo and conditioner! I've stayed in some rental units that do not supply these things and the fact that they are here is so nice. There were chairs for sitting outside too. We didn't use the grill but it was in good shape. Love those Alaskan summers! Thank you, Rebecca for a lovely stay! And thank you for being so quick to bring over the extra sheets for the twin beds.

Fresh, Fully-Furnished, Family Size Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I had contacted to owner at the last minute to see if the property was available and she responded immediately. I have a family of 6 and we were coming to Anchorage for the weekend and needed somewhere with enough space to accommodate all of us comfortably. within an hour of contact I had the place reserved and instructions in hand. We liked the area, which is downtown and directly across fro the Sullivan arena. Upon arrival we noticed that the apartment had it's own driveway and fenced in back yard which made it feel more like we were home. The apartment itself was bigger than I had anticipated, very clean, well stocked with amenities and linen, and super cozy! We will definitely inquire about this property again in the future. Thank you soo much Rebecca!

Car: recommended

This property has the perfect location: directly across the street from the biggest sports arena in the city (Sullivan Arena), you are within walking distance from concerts, hockey games, and many of Anchorage's marathons. A 2 minute walk connects you to one of Anchorage's most beautiful walking trails, which famously goes from one end of the city to the other. Valley of the Moon Park is just minutes away, great for children and barbecue parties. In the summertime, you are a block and a half away from one of our most popular farmer's markets for lots delicious, fresh, locally grown veggies and other local offerings.

With downtown Anchorage just a 3-5 minute drive away, you have quick and easy access to the 5th Avenue Mall, many local shops and popular restaurants, the PAC (Performing Arts Center), the Anchorage Museum, and of course, Anchorage's bustling nightlife.

There is also a Fred Meyer grocery store 5 minutes away which has everything you might need.

The Sears Mall is also 3-5 minutes away, with shopping, a great food court, and one of our favorite coffee shops, Steam Dot.

The central location of this house is perfect and convenient for anyone visiting Anchorage.
