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 move 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 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 at 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 traveling with large groups of friends and family.

In 2013, we bought a cute duplex 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, 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 3-5 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

We love this property for many reasons: the location couldn't be better (both for travelers and longer-term guests); it has two cute but very different houses that are detached from one another (more privacy); it has been newly renovated yet has maintained some of it's original charm; the contemporary style gives the house that 'executive, clean and professional' feel; the fenced yard and landscaped lawn. We especially love that it's a great house for having an at-home barbecue int eh yard with friends or meeting up for dinner only minutes away.

Great Location, Very comfortable and nicely decorated home with private driveway, Fantastic Owners

  • 5 of 5

We found this home in a time of crisis - when we had to rush into Anchorage for my husband to have open heart surgery. I contacted the owners last-minute and received a prompt, very kind response. The home is a perfect location - convenient to both downtown and midtown Anchorage, and sits in a nice neighborhood. For us, it was extremely convenient having a private driveway that led directly into the house -- with no stairs. The house is laid out so that both bedrooms (which have king beds) have privacy, with a fully stocked kitchen (including gas stove!) and open living area in the middle. The unit also has its own washer and dryer, which was a tremendous help. The yard is fenced - perfect for children. The accommodations are nicely decorated and comfortable. This home - together with its outstanding owners - was a godsend for us.

Great little place in the heart of Alaska

  • 5 of 5

This little house has all the amenities you could want including a washer and dryer, that was a nice perk. Water pressure was amazing if you enjoy long showers. It is close to everything in Anchorage too.

This house is across the street from some great bike paths and near the center of Anchorage. I would recommend it for a stay in Anchorage.
