Unclean house, host is not responsive but good location

  • 2 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights.

We checked-in in the evening and found out that the house was not clean. There were unwashed used glasses in the kitchen sink, a half eaten chocolate on the kitchen counter, and an unfinished icecream in the deep freezer. The floor in the house was dusty. The bed linens were not clean as well.

We tried to reach Henry (host) couple of times, but could not reach him. Even left him a text and a Voice mail. He did not respond back. On the next day, got in touch with the neighbor who connected us with Henry. He told us to keep a note in the house of list of things that are not clean, and he will have someone come and clean it up. Nobody showed up! I wish the app alowed me to post few photos of the house.

On a positive note, the house is situated at a nice, convenient location - Hardly 30 min from Seward

The nearby lake is calm and beautiful.

Quick suggestion to the host, please make sure the house is cleaned up before the guest arrives and please try to be courteous about any requests the guest would make.

Cozy Home

  • 5 of 5

Moose Pass isn't an obvious choice for most people to stay - since its midway between Seward and Anchorage. But that's the only reason why we stayed here. And Henry's place was exactly what our family of 5 needed. The house has a fully-operational kitchen, which was a big help since there aren't many restaurants in the area plus my dad has food allergies, so we could cook while we stayed here. The surrounding area is pretty nice too - for a walk or an evening stroll, if you have the time :) Thanks to Henry for sharing his wonderful home with us.

Moose Pass

  • 5 of 5

Henry was an amazing host...he was so helpful and a pleasure to talk with! We really enjoyed our stay and in fact extended a third night! Seward and Moose Pass are beautiful areas...a great place to stay if you don't mind traveling between the two places ....which we did't because the short drive is so beautiful. I would highly recommend staying at Moose Pass ....Henry always responded quickly and always made you feel at home.

Strategic location for visits to Seward, very cozy and relaxing cabin, with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is truly nice. Situated on a hill with dense woods, it gives you a feeling of being in the wild a lot more than the photos suggest. The owners probably see a lot of bears and moose. The lawn was picture perfect (we stayed in July), with wood provided for the fire pit. The cabin is very cozy and functional, with wooden interior and all amenities. The owner (Henry) has given every thought to make you welcome. There was bottled water in the fridge, cooking necessities, even two bear sprays for safer hiking. We had a truly enjoyable time. Would stay there anytime, and would recommend it to all my friends.
