Clean, comfy beds, and felt like home away. Easy to find and close to the city but in a neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely recommend. The modern washer and dryer were a God send since we had been roughing it in Denali. We were traveling with 4 adults and two kids- perfect for us. The only thing that got cozy was the one bathroom but they put a makeup mirror in the study so the ladies could get ready outside the bathroom.

The house is very nice and provided a great place close to the university where my daughter was attending a violin camp.

Definitely a Fairbanks Gem!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean, comfortable, simple yet up to date home! It was a perfect choice for our stay in Fairbanks while attending our son's wedding. Within 10 minutes of all venues! I enjoy cooking and did a fair amount while visiting. I would have loved a few non teflon pans, however, what was available in the kitchen worked fine! Thanks for providing us with a wonderful home away from home.

Comfortable and Quiet Location

  • 4 of 5

Very nice single family home. Nicely decorated and clean. Updated kitchen and bath. Small deck on the side of the house. Only issue was the bathroom shower head - quite high, difficult to move and the shower pressure was not great, but it was OK. House is located in a quiet residential area. I would recommend this location.

Comfortable, inviting home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It was conveniently located near the airport. The owners were very responsive to our needs. The house decor was inviting and comfortable. The house was very clean and as described. Best of all, we could see the aurora from our front yard.
