We arrived about 2:00 am and were exhausted. The owner had made arrangements for us to get into the house easily and when we walked in... WOW! The view was incredible! It was an exciting start to our large family's (8 of us) vacation. When we awoke the next day, we had a view of Mt. McKinley in all its glory. Having lived in Alaska many years ago, we knew that was a treat.
The house is as it is pictured only nicer. Nice finishes, great appliances, plenty of seating, and well-stocked kitchen. Bedding was comfortable and plentiful. The biggest bonus was the full-size freezer in the garage where we were able to freeze our 176 lbs of halibut filets!
I was concerned about the location being out of the way, but instead found it to be quite convenient. We were able to find everything we needed within a 10 minute drive from the house. Being in South Anchorage was a good central location for all of our north and south destinations. Having the "home base" turned out to be a good plan, allowing us to only pack what we needed for day trips.
Justin (the owner) was very accessible by email or phone for my questions both before the trip and during our stay.
If we are ever able to make a return trip to Alaska, this house will be our first booking! We all highly recommend it to anyone wishing to have a home away from home while vacationing.
