I moved to Alaska from Los Angeles in 1998 to work in the Arctic. Deadhorse, Alaska on the edge of the Beaufort Sea was my base of operations for four and a half years. WesternGeco, the company I worked for then sent me down on the Kenai peninsula for six months, where I lived in a cabin on the Moose River in Sterling. Then I decided it was time to buy a house in Anchorage. I purchased a duplex and turned half into a fully furnished GuestHouse where I now live with my chocolate Lab, Gunner. I enjoy meeting people from around the world who frequent the GuestHouse. I also have a dogwalking business, Bubbas Dog Walking.

Michele Palatas purchased this house in 2002

Anchorage is a great base for exploring the wild wonderful place called Alaska! It is a gorgeous drive south on the Seward Highway heading down to Girdwood, Seward, Homer, Hope, Coopers Landing and places in between on the Kenai Peninsula. There is much to see and much to do, especially in the great outdoors! Anchorage offers great restaurants, shopping, museums, citywide trails for biking, hiking, skiing....mountains for snowboarding, downhill, snowmachining and dogsledding........heading north to Denali, Fairbanks, the arctic brings unimaginable wonders to see and experience!

The location of this house rental was minutes from the full marathon start line...which was perfect! We enjoyed the accomodations thoroughly...fresh coffee, laundry facility and gracious hostess who helped us with figuring out how to use the DVD player! This is the ideal way to travel to Alaska since the prices can be extreme. It was very neat and clean when we arrived. We highly recommend it!

What brought me to Anchorage was family and your guest cottage was just perfect for us. It felt like home where we could be comfortable and enjoy ourselves. Home cooked meals when we wanted and some great local restaurant food worked out perfectly. Our favorite spot was probably the pizza from Moose's Tooth. The guest house was also a great spot to travel from. We were able to explore downtown Anchorage and venture out to the Alyeska area. The coastal road heading out there was probably some of the most breathtaking views that I have ever encountered.

Thank you for the warm welcoming feeling and your friendship while we were staying with you. It was just the right combination of privacy and company. I would recommend this property without reservation to anyone traveling to the Anchorage area.
Owner's Response: It was wonderful to meet you and share some moments, and it was such a pleasure to share in your joyful reunion with your son!
Thank you for your kind words and being such an endearing house guest!
Looking forward to having you return to Duben Place!
Best wishes, Michele.

Thank you for the quiet and comfort of your lovely home. We enjoyed our family time in the cool rainy weather of Anchorage (a nice change from the hot, dry desert of Arizona) and Duben Place was a convenient and efficient headquarters......May God bless you as you use your gift of hospitality to bless others.

You provided everything we could possibly have needed. Especially appreciated the effort you made to decorate with Alaskan art and lots of color.
We enjoyed meeting you and your pets.
This was the perfect spot for our "reunion, vacations and gave us opportunity to gather family".
Thank you for the beautiful roses!
