Fairbanks Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Best Vacation Rental in the Fairbanks Area - A Private Woods, Close to Town!

Perfect for the short term traveler, extended stays (over a month) are available, too. This beautiful newly remodeled, 750 sq.ft. one bedroom apartment has all new furnishings and better than hotel quality details. Private separate entrance on the ground floor. One bedroom with queen sized bed, all new bedding & new premium mattress. Apartment can accomodate up to 4 people, but it is best for single person, a couple, or a family. Free wi-fi Internet, flat panel TV with free cable, office/den in apartment with FAX/copier. Full bathroom includes washer & dryer, hair dryer, some toiletries.

It is conveniently located near the University of Alaska Fairbanks, (3 miles), and 8 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from shopping.

The view from the window is a mix of spruce, birch and aspen trees. Flower gardens, including iris and lilacs, and a vegetable garden are on the property. In the Summer, we are close to the botanical garden at UAF, and in the Winter, if the auroras are out, they are very likely to be seen right over our house, with no city light pollution to dilute them.

Les & Carol Smallwood, have been residents in Fairbanks, Alaska, for over 23 years. This home you'd be staying at has been built by Les. The year purchased just indicates the year we purchased the piece of land it sits on. Located among aspen and spruce trees, the apartment suite is on the lower lever and was just remodeled. We have two dogs and three cats, (all friendly and will not bother you), we love our location and privacy and hope you'll consider staying with us. We look forward to making your stay memorable.

Carol or Les Smallwood purchased this apartment in 1991

This piece of property is a total of 2.5 acres that was purchased by Les Smallwood in 1991, and then he began the process of clearing the woods and building the house you see today on it. We picked this part of town because it is near the University, doesn't have a lot of commercial business cluttering and hiding the natural beauty of the area, it is private and quiet, and it is still very close and convenient to everything in town. It is also located within the best schools' districts in the city, ensuring that our kids would go to the best public schools available.

Living with woods all around means privacy, and that you may get visits from the local moose. The air is fresh, and the water tastes good right out of the faucet, no filtering needed. If you are here in the Summer, the days are long and beautiful. In the Winter, the auroras are clear and strong, without any city light pollution.

Wonderful rental by people that really and truly care!

The Smallwoods are a great couple that operate this rental. The rental was cute, clean, and well appointed. It is located sufficiently out of town so that you can still feel like you are outside the city, but is still close enough to the airport to be convenient. My only regret was that my wife and I didn't have time to really relax and enjoy this rental as we overstuffed our itinerary. The hosts went out of their way to make sure that we had a great time and everything that we needed. They even left some locally caught Alaskan salmon in the freezer for us. This rental is perfect for vacation or business travelers as the the unit has an office as well. Thank you for everything!

Owner's Response: We are very glad you had a nice stay here! Thanks so much for your lovely review. Yes, we wish you could have stayed longer, it's hard to pack it all into only a few days. We'd love to have you as guests here again if you make a return trip to the area!

Wonderful christmas time

Not only was the apartment very comfortable and homey but Carol and Les made us feel welcomed and made our Christmas in Fairbanks very enjoyable. We had a great time and even saw a Moose right outside the kitchen window. Les was very knowledgeable about how to photograph the auroras and where to find the perfect viewing spot. Carol gave us a lot of information about local activities and excursions. Thank you for all your help Carol and Les.

Owner's Response: Thank you Pamela! You and Frank are welcome to come back and stay with us whenever you want to get that Wintery feeling again! Or come in a different time of year, we have great summers, too! We are so glad you saw some really nice auroras, and having the moose walk by outside the window must have really been a fun surprise! The aurora photos you took were very good, especially since it was a new subject for you.

Feels like home

My partner and I were so happy to spend ten weeks with Carol and her family staying in this warm and comfortable apartment. The apartment is well appointed and very comfortable - a full kitchen, TV area, bedroom and office space, bathroom and laundry. The photos that Carol has displayed are accurate and we too now have many photos of this cute little place. It backs onto a small woods and walking track where I spotted moose tracks and enjoyed many afternoon strolls. The property is well maintained and the owners are just delightful. In fact we do feel like we were hosted so well by this lovely family that it started to feel like home for us. We recommend this property to all of those spending time in Fairbanks - its well located close to the university. You will need a car as Fairbanks is very spread out and you will want to go to Chena Hot Springs and drives around the ares - keep your eyes peeled for moose! Thanks so much Carol and Les! We will see you next time we are in Alaska!
Owner's Response: Thanks very much for your beautiful review, Michelle and Amanda! We too also feel like you are friends whom we would love to visit when we ever make it to Australia! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and now have so many fun memories of Fairbanks. Our 'puppies' as you call them, miss their walks with you in the afternoon, I will try to add that in for them every day. Carol & Les & family

Nice comfortable Stay !

This apt was exactly as described , very well maintained. We had a very comfortable stay with easy access to all of Fairbanks. It was nice to get up and have coffee available after the long drive from Anchorage. Carol was very friendly and checked on our stay to make sure all was well. Didn't get a chance to meet Les but assume he is just as nice as Carol was. Apt has its own access with parking right in front of the door making it very easy to load and unload luggage. We travel every year and try to rent houses/ apts where ever we go I would recommend this to anyone looking for peace and quiet but with easy access to town.Better amenities than any hotel stay with plenty of room to move around without getting in each others way. Thank you for the stay we enjoyed Fairbanks and loved seeing the North Pole.

We are located near the University of Alaska Fairbanks, on the west side of town, only 8 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from shopping, yet still secluded, private wooded setting. In the Summer, we are very close to the botanical garden, and the UAF Large Animal Research station with musk ox and caribou, (reindeer). In the Winter, the auroras can be seen going right over our house!
