Home base for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything it advertises. It's in a quiet, safe neighborhood with easy access to the main highway, two great grocery stores and the Chester Creek Trail. We were 3 couples and 4 singles in our family group, so the 7 bedrooms were perfect for us. We had plenty of space to play board games, congregate and cook together. The kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of glasses, dishes and nice pots and pans and two large refrigerators upstairs. A second kitchen and living area comprise the back two bedrooms downstairs. Laundry machines are in both areas. We very much enjoyed having a great home base to explore from.

Perfect home for extended family time in Alaska!!! Daughter's wedding!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything we needed. Plenty of room for everything and everyone. We really enjoyed the gas grills for having a Halibut feast for friends and family! Kitchen, big dining area and porch deck was great! I would recommend the house to any family vacationing together. Many sites, walks, hikes, stores, restaurants close!!!!! Our wedding was at the Alaska Native Heritage Center and this home was only 15 minutes away!!

House was clean, beds comfy and plenty of kitchen equipment,dishes, and utensils to be better than a home away from home!!

Reeda was always readily available to answer any questions or concerns before and during our stay. NO REGRETS in booking the Palmer House!!!!

A great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

13 of my siblings and their spouses stayed with me and my wife for a period of 5 nights/6 days. We absolutely loved the house. Very clean and well maintained. Saturday morning all of us had to get ready for a wedding in just a few hours. There was no line-up waiting for showers, makeup, etc. as the house has 4 bathrooms located throughout both floors. Even though our stay was for almost a week, most of us packed "light" as we knew there were two sets of clothes washers and dryers and they were used frequently. It was nice to arrive back home with a smaller suitcase packed with clean clothes. One of the siblings packed a box of laundry pods and that worked for all of us. It was also wonderful that there were three refrigerators, two on one floor, one on the lower floor, as we pretty much had one of the units dedicated to refreshments. There is a large grocery/liquor store which we actually walked to (about 10 blocks?) the first time and then just took a rental car the other times. Alaska does not have to be that expensive if you purchase some groceries and eat at "home" a couple of times a day. The kitchens (one on each floor) had more than enough of the place settings, silver ware, cups etc., plus 2 coffee makers and 2 grills. 14 of us could gather around the dining table for games, and there was also a 2nd dining table if you needed it.

The location is in a very "nice" neighborhood and the people living around our area were friendly and helpful about giving advice on good places to eat or things to do. The house is less than 3 blocks from a "green belt"...a wooded trail that is perfect for biking or walking. The same trail goes throughout the city of Anchorage and is connected to the Tony Knowles Coastal Trail, which is a must-do activity. We saw moose along the trail less than 10 walking minutes from the house. If you rent this house, I would strongly recommend renting some bicycles (there are rental places all over Anchorage) during your stay, if you enjoy easy biking. The trails are well maintained and wonderful to ride along.

We rented one car for all 15 of us and used a combination of ferrying people and taxis (it's easy to arrange pickups from the house). There is plenty of room to park off of the street for multiple cars.

The owner communicated regularly in the time leading up to our stay. The keypad lock worked great for all of us coming and going at different times. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat, my siblings would concur.

This house is exactly what we thought it would be and large enough for my whole family. We had one very small problem which was immediately handled by the onsite manager and we really appreciated it. We rented all 7 bedrooms and felt close to everything. We also appreciated the fact that the owner has 2 large dining room tables which sit 20 people!! Often VRBO's with a lot of rooms don't have this. This was the perfect place for my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary after our cruise that landed in Seward. THANK YOU REEDA!!

This house was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This house suited our needs perfectly.

It was easy to find, it was located out of the city but close enough for us to get to and the trail provided a relaxing walk for those of us that wanted to take a stroll.

We were 14 adults and we had plenty of room with some to spare.

The living and kitchen area was great for us to congregate in.

Great for our extended family

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home for our extended family to stay in when our daughter got married. 3 families + our 2 boys + 1 wedding guest all stayed here for nearly a week. Couldn't have asked for a better place for all these people to be. They loved it! Reeda was very helpful prior to our visit. I would strongly recommend this home to others for large groups.
