Convenient, Clean and Quiet
The property was convenient to the airport, offered off street parking, was very clean and had everything we needed. There's also a great park a short walk up the street, and a pond nearby where you can watch the float planes take off and land! We stayed for three nights at the beginning of our Alaska trip.
Craig’s unit was clean and ready for our stay. It was so nice having a place to spread out rather than staying in a hotel room. Thank you Craig
Thanks for booking with us!
Great place to stay in Anchorage
Good central location, everything I needed, great price.
Thanks for the Great Review!
Clean and great location
My wife and I stayed here for a week with our 3 daughters age 13, 16, and 18. Check in was a breeze, all was very clean and owner text back answers with any questions we had right away. Location was just a short drive from airport. We had different places to eat close by. I was very happy that we did not get a hotel room for our stay. It was great to be in a house when we got done with our day trips. I would stay here again with no concerns. Thanks again Craig. Mitch & Family
Thanks for the great review!
The neighborhood is not as expected and the condo is surrounded by asphalt no grass.
The property is not air conditioned and there are no screens on the bulk of the windows, with the two screens actually in a window being broken. The unit was 90 degrees inside with no airflow. The toilet is filled with hot water and the handle broke off when trying to flush. The toilet fill tank had black mold in it. When we contacted the property owner about the issues approximately 30 minutes after he left the condo to inform his of the issues, he stated he was out of town and had been drinking and would come fix things in the morning. He also stated that we just needed to open the windows to cool things down and we needed to just reach into the tank to flush the toilet because it worked if we did that. When I told him I was concerned about bugs, birds or bats getting in through the open windows without screens he stated there aren’t bugs in Anchorage. He said he’d only come back if the toilet would t flush anything down otherwise he be there in the morning. We couldn’t stay there due to the heat and to suggest we stick our hands in a toilet tank to flush it is completely unacceptable. We had six in our group and due to the conditions we made hotel reservations and notified him we were leaving g. After doing so he said he was headed to the property and bringing fans and going to fix the toilet and would have fans done in the mid j g. We do t know if this actually was repaired because we had left. But, it was Interesting how fast he returned according to his texts to me since he was supposedly out of town and had been drinking. I just wonder how he had time to get the fans and supplies to fix the toilet considering the timeline and his statements. i would say beware of renting from him as the property was uninhabitable for us under this conditions. Other than that the inside of the unit was nice and would have been a nice stay had there been screens, fans and the toilet working and/ or knowing the issues he had already made sure there were screens, fans and responded appropriately about the issue with the toilet. He refused to refund us our money and we had to co tact VRBO which isn’t readily available to find a link on how to contact them. The VRBO rep was very helpful but, she was still unable to get him to refund our money. The case is being elevated to a review department and we are waiting for their decision.
Well first i would like to say this is by far the worst review I have ever received in 10 years of being a host. Please read previous reviews...more than 50. At time of check in Alaska was breaking temperature records in the 80's but only for a few days.
Alaska Homes do not have Air Conditioning...we are more worried about heaters. Then the toilet handle broke...geez I'm really sorry about that! I was 30 Minutes away when she called...I offered to come in that night but she said they would be fine until morning and the toilet flushed by pulling the broken handle and was working...i said OK call me if you need me tonight...she said OK...then the next message was she and her party left and went somewhere else....i did drive in that night to repair the handle....which i should have just done in the first place...my bad! I did refund her the deposit and the cleaning fee..i tried to work with her but she was very unforgiving...you can also read reviews from my other properties vrbo.com/176887 and also vrbo.com/663783 and you will see my name Craig as being very attentive and helpful...nearly 200 reviews to see with average rating of 4.8 and 4.9 out of 5.0...she does say the place is nice and it is with years of happy stays...please consider the unusual circumstances when reading this... Thank You Craig
Solstice in Anchorage
Property was as as advertised. Worked perfectly for our group of 3. We did rent a car, as there is so much to do and see in Anchorage. Cute restaurant (Rustic Goat) just a short walk from condo. Very easy to access the Tony Knowles running trail - (we ran it a few times). Owner was very responsive. Would recommend this property to others.
