About Paul and Darlene Kuriscak

At age 8 or 9, I saw a magazine photo of Alaska's Mt. McKinley and at that time I determined to come to Alaska which I did at age 17 and been here 40 years. I love this great land and all it has to offer with its majestic scenery and amazing wildlife.

Paul and Darlene Kuriscak purchased this house in 1983

Why Paul and Darlene Kuriscak chose Anchorage

I purchased this home in Anchorage, Alaska, when it was new. Back then, it sat on the edge of town and now it is situated in a safe, quiet residential area where you might see our neighborhood moose.

This duplex style ranch house shares a wall with our neighbor who has lived there for many, many years and so we can assure a QUIET stay.

We offer easy and convenient coded access for late night check-in and PRIVACY. However, if you need anything we are only a phone call away.

Cleanliness and sanitation is a top priority for us so we launder everything including mattress protectors and blankets after EVERY guest. We do not allow pets to insure a sanitary and allergy-free environment.

Family friendly.

We support our military. Ask about our military special.

What makes this house unique

Convenient central location close to hospitals and University UAA and highway access. 10-15 minutes to downtown or airport

Quiet dead-end residential street location

Duplex ranch-style house (zero lot line) with bright modern open plan concept with its own in-home laundry room. We have a quiet neighbor who has been there almost as long as we have owned it.

It is a fully equipped house situated at the end of a quiet residential street with off-street parking right at the front door and a private fenced backyard, BBQ grill, firepit, table and chairs.

All on one level with only 2 steps to the front porch and easy coded deadbolt access for arrival at any time of day or night.

This recently updated house, convenient to the airport and downtown, is centrally located for local attractions and excellent day trips south to the Kenai Peninsula and north to places like historical Talkeetna.

Located within minutes of miles of multi-use trails, BLM land, parks, recreation area, golf courses, water park, mini-golf, paint ball, shopping mall, grocery store, and dining.

A 48 inch TV with 100-channel cable and a DVD player provides entertainment.

High speed Wi-Fi internet

Sleeps up to 6 with 2 queen bedrooms and a queen LazyBoy sleeper sofa with innerspring mattress in the living area.

Excellent Anchorage rental home

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights here while in Anchorage. The home was very clean and comfortable. The south east anchorage location is vey close to many restaurants and coffee shops as well as the local trailheads into the Chugach mountains. Paul and Darlene were very quick to respond to requests and inquires. This is home makes an excellent base camp for adventures in Anchorage.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Darlenes little two bedroom home is clean, semi modern and tastefully decorated. Best of all, it's cozy and comfortable, like a second home away from home. It is close to the city transit, restaurants, and grocery stores. It's quiet and surrounded by friendly neighbors. I would definitely recommend it to family and friends to rent from Paul and Darlene.

Clean, quiet & comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were in town from a bush community in Alaska, looking to relax and take advantage of the conveniences in Anchorage. We are both a little germ-phobic, and were thrilled to find the home spotlessly clean as advertised. We didn't hear a peep from the neighbors, and were able to relax as if we were in our own home. Everything we needed was within a 15 minute drive. We definitely plan on staying here again, and would recommend it to friends. The owners responded to inquiries within five minutes, which is exceptional for any accommodation.

Owner's Response: We appreciate a clean, quiet, and comfy place when we travel, so we work hard to ensure the same for our guests. We are thankful for guests like these who leave everything so nice! Looking forward to hosting these guests again.

Great Location, Cozy and Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

We rented this unit for one month in order to be in Anchorage for the birth of our granddaughter. We were there for Thanksgiving through Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed staying in this unit. The location was perfect - close to our son's and also within walking distance for groceries or restaurants. We have rented through VRBO many times and this was hands down the cleanest rental we have stayed in. The unit is exactly as the pictures and description describe it. The beds and pillows were super comfortable, the kitchen was well furnished with dishes and appliances and convenient full size washer and dryer. When we had trouble trying to figure out the Blu-Ray player, Paul came right over and helped us solve the problem. We would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to our family and friends! And we also saw a moose just up the road! Thanks Darlene and Paul!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a 10 day vacation. The house was very clean and in a quiet neighborhood. You'll find soft cozy sheets, a hot shower, efficient washer and dryer and all the kitchen supplies you'll need. In between hikes and exploring we enjoyed relaxing in this home. The curtains were also great for getting rest in the ever present summer sun. Paul and Darlene are excellent hosts, checking in to make sure we were settled in the rental. We highly recommend staying here for anyone that wants a comfy place close to everything.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was very user friendly! Clean, functional, quiet neighbors. Will keep you in mind when we are in town again! My teenage daughter loved this over a hotel.
