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.

Full size washer and dryer in separate in-home laundry room.

Full size kitchen, fully equipped.

Separate dining room seats 6.

Private fenced backyard with BBQ grill, firepit, and table and chairs.

Plenty of off-street parking right at the front door.

ALL linens are washed including blankets after every guest.

You might even spot our occasional neighborhood moose (see photos).

Family friendly with portable crib, stroller, and high chair.

Very well maintained

  • 4 of 5

Our sons and their families stayed here for a week in July. They said it was clean and comfortable with lots to offer (larger washer/dryer; expanded TV channels; comfortable beds). Photos are accurate. The house is on a cul de sac so through traffic is minimal; but it was summertime and the long daylight hours prompt neighborhood activity well past some bedtimes -- that was the only drawback given the group included a young child and some light sleepers. A large fan or white noise phone app could have remedied. Other than that -- the place worked very well for the group.

This is a great place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great unit. Everything is super new, very clean, very comfortable. I loved the location, close enough to get around town easily, but also far enough into the neighborhood to be extra quiet. Also, it is super private. The owners were great and very helpful throughout the process. My wife seriously took notes about decoration and design so we could do some of the same things in our home (loved the tile flooring in the bathroom and kitchen). We definitely plan to look here first for all of our future trips to Anchorage.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you found the house to be quiet, private, clean, comfortable and convenient which is what we look for when we travel, too. We look forward to having great guests like you come again!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four recently stayed here for our trip to Alaska. The house was great! Super CLEAN, that's a top priority for us. Its not big or flashy, but It certainly had everything we needed. There was a cooler which we used for a day trip, there were plentiful towels, a few games, which the kids played, and laundry facilities, which allowed us to pack lighter. The bedrooms were a nice size with ample closet space (and hangers)for storing our baggage. Staying in the house was so much more enjoyable than being crammed into a hotel room, and by far a more affordable choice. The owners checked in with us via email during our stay, and were very prompt in responding to our questions. We would gladly stay here again.

Great house to stay in

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and comfortable. Very well equipped kitchen. Gas grill in the back yard was greatly appreciated.

Occasional noise from neighbors, but generally very quiet.

Would use again!

Owner's Response: Thank you! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and would stay again. I'm sorry you experienced occasional noise which we are remedying with additional privacy to the yard. With this unusually warm summer and open windows, even at our own home we are getting more noise since everyone is outside.

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.
