Owners have lived in Alaska for over 40 years and are a semi-retired couple who travel expensively in the 'Lower 48' but continue to call Alaska 'home'. During the summer they enjoy spending time on the Kenai River fishing for Alaska salmon. During the fall they enjoy the Adirondacks in NY where they have a small cabin on the Ausable River. The winters are spent mainly in Florida avoiding the cold snowy weather they have enjoyed all those years. They maintain a small apartment over the garage at said property for when they are in Anchorage.
We rented this home to spend Thanksgiving with our 3 kids attending UAA. We wanted to be somewhere we could all stay together (We do not live in Anchorage) and I could cook! This home was truly a home away from home. There was plenty of space for our kids, their significant others and us (Mom and Dad). We loved staying here and will def rent this home again! The kitchen had everything I needed (and more), the side by side Fridge and Freezer was perfect for all the food storage! We decided to stay a couple more days (at the last minute) and the owners were great to work with! Beds were all super comfy...the whole house was super comfy!! We loved it!
This was so much better, and cheaper, than our gang getting hotel rooms. It's a beautiful home and very quiet. Loved being across from the zoo. Doesn't really take long to get anywhere in Anchorage so this was a great spot. Met the owner and was very pleasant. Bought groceries and had several meals here so saved money eating out. No problems at all while we were there. Wifi came in handy. If you have a large group I'd definetly stay here over the hotels.
The house is in excellent condition and as pictured but map location is incorrect but address is accurate. Across from Anchorage Zoo. Clean with all amenities needed. Owner answered all questions. Zoo was across main road for my grandkids. Close to shopping. Comfortably slept 11 with adequate bathrooms. Parking can accomodate four vehicles. WIFI. Secluded from road traffic. Excellent property recommend to anyone with large party needing place to stay.
We rented this house while we were in town for my son's wedding. We wanted a place where both sets of grandparents were able to stay with us as well as some visiting groomsmen. The house was perfect for what we needed. It was great to be able to all stay under one roof and not try to work out social settings from hotel rooms. The beds were ultra comfortable, and the bedrooms were so inviting; again, much better than a hotel would have been.
The house was big enough to host a couple small gatherings with the bride's family and with bridesmaids and groomsmen as well. The industrial sized freezer/refrigerator allowed us to stock up on food, and we hardly ate out at all while we visited. There were some toys for visiting children, and plenty of Alaska books and visitors guides provided to give us an idea of what to do when the wedding activities were over.
The only things I would check on before renting: the dishwasher and the grill. We ran one load through the dishwasher 3 times before we gave up and hand washed everything while we were there. Hand washing dishes is not something I do at home so I certainly wasn't thrilled to have to do it on our mini-vacation. We tried to cook brats on the grill one evening when it was fairly warm, but the grill is pretty run-down and we ended up moving them to the indoor grill instead.
I would definitely rent this home again as it was rally just so comfortable and inviting. Before renting, however, I would definitely make sure the dishwasher had been fixed or replaced. :)
We reserved many months in advance with Dawn, and were grateful to have that done. Our plans were all made for four couples, with one couple having to cancel at the last minute for medical reasons. So the six of us were rattling around in that big house. It would be a wonderful spot for a multi-generation family to stay while enjoying Anchorage- three living areas, two dining areas, and lots of beds.
We were unlucky enough to be there the night of the big storm in Anchorage. Owner Bob happened to be there that evening, staying in their apartment over the garage, and brought us a flashlight just in case the power went out. Sure enough, 10 PM, storm started and the power went out. The only one who really suffered was our CPAP user- no sleep for him. But the rest of us slept like babies and the power came on early the next morning.
While the property is not right in town, a rental car makes everything accessible easily. The listing is complete and well represented. The only thing I hadn't picked up on was that we wouldn't have the use of the garage. But that didn't present any problems for us.
It was a pleasure to stay in this lovely and well-furnished home.
