About Michele Palatas
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, I moved to Alaska in 1998 to work in Deadhorse-Prudhoe Bay, in the Arctic on the Beaufort Sea. I quickly became enchanted with this beautiful place we call Alaska! If you love the outdoors, this is the place!
Michele Palatas purchased this House in 2002
Why Michele Palatas chose Fairview
I purchased this duplex in 2002 along with two more, and made four of the units, fully furnished guesthouses.You may rent 1217 Guesthouse and the Cottage (912285) and the Cabin (3584196) if you require more room. Since then I have had the pleasure of welcoming guests from all over the world to our city nestled between Cook Inlet and the Chugach Mountains.
What makes this House unique
The convenience of being near to downtown and midtown, the Seward Highway heading south and the Glenn Highway heading north, make this a perfect location to get out and experience Anchorage and nearby attractions. Built in 1951 to accommodate personnel at the first airstrip, Merrill Field, the guesthouse has been completely renovated in the past couple years.

Cleanliness and quiet neighbors
The property was perfect for our 6 day trip. It was clean and had the necessities for what we were looking for. Michele is easy to work with and super friendly! It's in a great central location for looking to hike and have the city there too. Check out Seward, it's worth the drive. We would definitely stay here again should we be in Anchorage. Next time we're checking out SE AK! Thanks again Michele!
1217 Medra, Anchorage, AK
What a lovely place to stay in Anchorage - part of a real neighborhood: families, neighbors, a school a couple of blocks away. The house was so clean, so thoughtfully set up. I had everything I needed, plus good suggestions for shopping and eating out. Should I come to Alaska again, I know where I want to stay.
Thank you so much for the lovely review! It was certainly my pleasure having you at the Guesthouse! I look forward to accommodating you again when returning to Anchorage!
Warm regards, Michele.
Very nice home away from home
This is exactly what we were looking for! Extremely clean, well appointed, great location close to downtown, shopping & restaurants. Having a little kitchen was a plus, the high-efficiency washer & dryer was a big plus. Being dog friendly came in handy as friends who visited us had a dog. You can tell great care was taken in furnishing this little house because it was filled with many extras that made our stay so much more comfortable. Thank you Michele!
Thank you for your stay and your lovely review! It was my pleasure having you and your family at the 1217 Guesthouse!
Warm regards, Michele.
