Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

The space is downstairs in a fully finished basement that is completely separate from the couple that owns the house, and includes a dining room, a fully stocked kitchen, bathroom and living space. It's plenty big for two people and has literally everything you need. It's a great location as well being within 15 min probably of Fairbanks, but only if you have a car (I can't imagine anyone really doing much walking about in downtown Fairbanks when it's -20 outside). We did have a car so it was fine, and we were able to catch our only view of the Northern Lights just down the road. Our hosts Eric and Tina were very accommodating and offered suggestions and heads up that greatly improved our trip. We never met them in person (our doing not theirs), and they were great about communicating via text. The only downside I'd say is the lack of windows (there are two placed high up), but in the dead of winter that didn't make a huge difference anyway. We stayed over Christmas vacation and were very comfortable in the Arctic Fox Stay! Thank you Eric and Tina!

Search no farther! This has it all!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect location for my stay and Tina and Eric were exceptional hosts! The apartment has all the amenities you could ask for in a home away from home. It was very clean, very quiet, and very comfortable. The location was ideal for access to Fairbanks, military installations, and outdoor recreation activities - everything I was hoping for. A quiet, spacious setting. Tina and Eric are kind and gracious. They helped me find local activities and had tips for adventures near and far, as well as being solicitous of my comfort and well-being during my stay. I arrived later than expected because of a flight delay. Tina made sure there was coffee and juice in the apartment and she stayed up late to make sure I got in okay. She even set out a mug and tea for me! The apartment was clean with nice, modern furnishings. I simply cannot say enough about how wonderful my stay was, how nice the accommodations were, and how friendly the hosts! Book now - you won't regret it! I'd recommend it for anyone and plan to come back. I'd plan my trip around their availability. Five stars!

First Class Stay

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in many VRBO properties over the years and Tina and Eric's studio in North Pole is not only the quietest property I've been in, it's one of the nicest and Tina and Eric were the most accomodating host's I've stayed with. Since there were no reservations on either end of my visit, Tina let me ignore the usual check-in, check-out times. My first day here involved a doctors appointment in Fairbanks and the next morning, Tina was worried because she hadn't heard any noise from the studio so she texted to check on my well being! The interior of the studio looks like it was done by an interior decorator with top quality furnishings and is very cozy. The yard is beautiful (it's late summer here now so that will change with the seasons . . . snow season arrives soon!). Because it's a basement studio, there aren't many windows but that keeps the outside noise to a minimum. The steps down could be a problem for some individuals with knee problems so you need to be aware of that. However, all in all, this is a quality property and the first 5 star I've given to a VRBO. Thank you Tina and Eric! -Laurie

Exceptionally Inviting

  • 5 of 5

Studio apartment was very clean, comfortable, pleasant and quiet. No intrusion from owners. Completely furnished. There were just two of us but it could comfortably accommodate four. The 25 minute drive back and forth to family in Fairbanks was easy. I would highly recommend it to our family & friends visiting the area. Wanda U. Wisconsin

The quaint community of North Pole is located just 20 minutes from Fairbanks, where you will find plenty of summer and winter activities. The Arctic Fox Stay is ideally located in a quiet neighborhood, close to Fairbanks, 42 miles to Chena Hot Springs, close to Santa Claus House, and Chena Lakes Recreation Area. A well maintained bike path from the beginning of Badger Road to North Pole runs right by the Arctic Fox Stay. Bikes are available for free.
