About Michele Palatas
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 Rotti-Lab mix, Quinn. I enjoy meeting people from around the world who frequent the GuestHouse. I also have a dog-walking business, Bubba's Dog Walking.
Michele Palatas purchased this House in 2002
Why Michele Palatas chose Northeast Anchorage
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!

So cute and clean
Property was adorable, a lot bigger than I expected. Very clean as well. My husband and I checked in later in the evening and were welcomed with muffins! The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook with. Bed was so comfortable. Bathroom was lovely. We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much.

Best Family Vacation
We Loved meeting Michelle and Quinn! The home was perfect. We were so relaxed and felt so welcome. We will never forget our Forever friends. 💗⛰🐋
Dr Visits made more managable
The privacy fence, lilac trees & lovely, and well maintained gardens were very welcoming & cozy. The home itself was clean, cozy, and we had everything you could possibly need. As our visit included doctor visits for our elderly parents the comfortable surroundings were great for them to relax in between appointments. Thank you so much Michelle for your hospitality!
Thank you! Hope to have you return! Bring the kids and the dogs!
Traveled from Fairbanks to have surgery. It felt like it was my own home I was recovering in- every possible amentity was available. Michele is the perfect host- so sweet and accommodating! Thank you!
