Cozy and clean

  • 5 of 5

This house is such a great find with a tucked away feeling. Beds are very comfortable with lots of pillows and extra blankets if needed. The bathroom is bright and clean with a nice assortment of shampoos and conditioner if you happened to forget your own like I did. Fluffy towels too. The kitchen is nicely stocked as well- nice heavy coffee cups and plenty of dinnerware. Ice melt and shovel by front door if needed. Very cozy, very quiet, a great little get away!! I would definitely stay here again!!! Recommended to all!!!

Absolutely Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay in Paul & Darlene's "home away from home." We were visiting Anchorage from Fairbanks with an 18-month old and having the second bedroom and comfortable home layout made being in a strange place so much easier! The amenities in the home were above and beyond, the location was quiet and yet close to all major activities & nice restaurants, and the neighborhood area was safe for my husband to run 10-12 miles a day! Darlene checked in on us prior to our arrival, the day of our arrival, and the day of checkout. So attentive and sweet! We hope that this home is available the next time we decide to make a trip to Anchorage!

My family came here for my son's senior trip. There were 4 of us and this was by far the BEST vrbo experience we've ever had! The house was IMMACULATE, it was in a quiet, peaceful neighborhood, and it was stocked with everything you could possibly need. It truly felt like home! The owners were wonderful to work with, and even sent periodic texts to check on us and make sure we were enjoying our stay. You couldn't ask for better customer service. They made our first trip to Alaska an amazing experience overall!
