Alaska Little Bear Vacation Rental is a year round, fully furnished 2 story townhouse accommodation in a country suburban setting, in Chugiak, Alaska. Chugiak is centrally located: 15 minutes to Anchorage, 15 minutes to Palmer-Wasilla and 5 minutes to Eagle River.
Upstairs we have 3 bedrooms and a full bath. One bedroom has a king size bed, one has a full size and one has bunk-beds: 1 full and 1 twin. On the main floor is the living room with sleeper-sofa, loveseat and fireplace, a half-bath, private laundry area, full kitchen with dishwasher, a back deck with patio set and BBQ. The fenced in back yard has a border garden where the hosts are always adding or changing plants to improve your viewing pleasure.
Our family of four, including 2 teens stayed in this property and found it to be very comfortable. It is larger than it looks in the pictures. The beds were all comfortable. The property was spotless with plenty of towels and blankets.
The owner was very easy to work with and even had freshly baked bread and homemade jam in the unit when we arrived!
Do check what is in the unit prior to shopping. We found fishing equipment, coolers, bear spray in the hall closet and quite a
few grocery staples in the kitchen.
While the unit is half of a duplex, we hardly knew the owner was there.
It is located in a residential neighborhood about 30 minutes north of ANC airport. The nearest grocery, walmart, restaurants etc was 5 minutes away in Eagle River.
We would definately recommend this property, especially for those on a budget.
Great location just off the Parks Hwy. Easy on/off the highway made travel a snap.
Stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the central location - still within 20 minutes of downtown Anchorage, minutes to Eagle River, lots of access to fishing locations, and 2.5 hour drive to Kenai peninsula.
Cindy the owner was very nice and easy to deal with. Listing was exactly as stated and the floor space was larger than the pictures show which was amazing!
Cindy even baked a fresh loaf of homemade bread and rhubarb-raspberry jam ready for our arrival.
Wireless internet, laundry and cable TV made the house feel just like home.
The owners have a very cute small dog that loves to come over and play since the backyard is shared.
The back yard is beautiful and is very well kept up.
If it weren't for the pesky mosquitos during the heat wave, we would have loved to dine outside on the deck of their cute patio furniture.
Enjoyed our 10 day stay more than the last one two years ago. There were 7 of us this time with the new toddler. The fenced in yard is great for the children.Clean,well cared for property with washer and dryer and close to everything. Thanks again Cyndi for the wonderful accomodations and we'll definitely see you again on our next trip to Alaska. Tom,Marge Andy,Leah,Lainey,Marlee and Attigun Benz
Big 3 bedroom 1 and a half bath house outside Anchorage in a great location! House is attached to the owners property but you wouldn't know they were even there. Kitchen, W/D, lots of living space and wifi; what else could you need in a well kept house? This was my second stay at this property and will stay here again!
Would recommend this house . It is in a quiet neighborhood not far from the freeway. The house looks exactly as the pictures show. Very clean, roomy and the beds are comfortable. We stayed 3 nights and loved it. Has it's own private patio and BQ. The owners do live on the property and are very friendly and helpful. If you want the perfect location for a rental this is it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay here. The home was comfortable, cozy, and the host was very hospitable. During our stay here, we used the home like a "base camp," where it was located within close proximity to many area attractions. In fact, Cyndi was very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions for nearby sightseeing, shopping, and other resources. The home was easy to find and, again, offered easy access to many attractions.
One of the conveniences Cyndi offered my family was a portable crib (pack 'n play) so that we didn't have to worry about packing ours for the flight north. This was a generous consideration. She even went out and bought bedding for the crib so our 14-month old would be comfortable, too. Thanks, Cyndi!
The ammenities really made our stay comfortable, too. Having laundry services in the home was a HUGE benefit, especially where we were planning on going fishing. This convenience prevented us from packing fishy clothes for our return home. Also, the back-yard BBQ was nice for our fresh catch, and also to prepare a mid-week steak.
We highly recommend this home for any visitors to the Anchorage, or even Wasilla, area and would definitly consider returning should we choose to tour the Anchorage area again. I feel that this is the best consideration for a review - whether the guest would consider returning. And we'd return without hesitation! Thanks, Cyndi, for making our trip to Alaska memorable and comfortable!
For our family and our nature of travel, there were NO negatives with our stay. This home suited our needs PERFECTLY! Thanks, again.
