Overview

About the property

850 Square Foot, 1 Bedroom Suite W. Private Entry-In House Situated On 2 Acres

This modern 1 bedroom 850 square foot suite is exceptional! Up to 4 people can relax in this newly updated space, which features vaulted ceilings, a double-sided gas fireplace, in floor heat, and granite surfaces throughout.

With a fully appointed kitchen you can relax in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine while preparing dinner, or enjoy a full breakfast and a cup of coffee in the morning without having to leave. There is also an outdoor BBQ grill and seating area.

The sofa features a queen size fold out bed that works great for 1 adult or two smaller children.

Fully furnished and very spacious, the bedroom includes king size bed, a 58' TV, and lots of large windows that allow for ample beautiful natural light. The bedroom ceilings are vaulted and give the room a very comfortable feel.

A walk in closet with a dresser, hangars, and full size washer and dryer make for easy management of all your clothing. There is an extra-large bathroom with double granite top vanities, a jetted tub, separate shower, and separate private toilet closet.

Situated on 2 acres, there is lots of outdoor space that you are welcome to use as well. In the summer months we have an outdoor fire pit for you, and fire wood should you decide to toast up a marshmallow or sit and watch the flames.

You will also find a private entrance, ample parking, and your own outdoor deck space. The private entrance also makes it easier for late or even very late check-ins.

This location is just minutes from many hiking trails that land you in some of the most picturesque locations you can imagine. It is also just minutes from great food, and shopping areas.

Above It All Chalet is simply that...Above it all in many ways. Located in one of Anchorage's premiere locations, it offers the best of all worlds. We have found it to be an excellent location to act as our home, and our home base for our own Alaskan adventures.

We are happy to accommodate late check-ins and sometimes early ones. And we can often accommodate a late check-out. Just let us know!!

About Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator

We are a typical family that moved to Alaska in 2005 seeking better life. We did exactly that. Alaska has provided us with countless opportunities to experience things we would never be able to in other states. We have been blessed to see incredible things all over the state. From wildlife viewing, to glacier hikes, we quickly grew to love this state. Our children and us have all fourished here and we would love to share our experiences. As both foodies, and lovers of the outdoors, Alsaka was the perfect fit for us. We hope you will find your nitch here as well!!

Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator chose Anchorage

It is all about location, accomodations, and the setting. While this property is private and situated perfectly for those that love the outdoors, we also feel it can accomodate those that simply like to relax as well. From here you can be to a beautiful glacier cruise, off shore fishing adventure, sea kayaking, and many other adventures within an hour. As we are located in South Anchorage, you can buzz downtown in 20 min, or you can get to beautiful girdwood for skiing, berry picking, or hiking in 30 minutes.

What makes this chalet unique

We feel it is unusual to find a place located in this area of South Anchorage Lower Hillside. With a more relaxed zoning we are able to have 2 acres and allow our guests to have their own fire pit area, and enjoy more outdoor space than most places in Anchorage. It is likely you will see moose on the property or maybe, even a black bear. From here you can easily get to the Kenai Peninsula for a fantastic adventure. Or, you can head north for stunning views of Mt. McKinley.

It is a beautiful place that was very impressive. Well maintained and super clean.

  • 5 of 5

It was so easy to stay there. The way Mike has the keyless entry makes its super easy to check in. You have a private entrance where you don't feel like you are intruding on the owners. Having the deck to sit on and the use of a grill was like being at home. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials to cook with. The Keurig and coffee was very much appreciated. The linens and towels were fresh and having the washer and dryer was a bonus! We slept terrific in the king size bed and loved the high end bathroom complete with beautiful shower and soaker tub. All the natural light through the many windows was terrific. The communication between Mike and us was fabulous. He is super easy to work with. We highly recommend staying here and we will definitely stay with him again.

The Perfect Place!

  • 5 of 5

Above It All Chalet was the perfect place. The Apartment was absolutely beautiful. Modern, comfortable and lacking absolutely nothing!! It's location was also perfect. Just far enough from the city to give you quiet comfort but within 15 minutes of everything Anchorage has to offer. The owners have thought of everything and made the whole experience so easy. Without a doubt, it was a great place to use as home base for our Alaskan Vacation.

Warm & Cozy Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovey stay at the Above It All Chalet!

The Chalet has everything you need to make you feel like you are at home. Michael provided so many extras that made you feel so welcome and made the stay in Alaska so stress free, he was also very accommodating to our needs and was very helpful with our questions.

The chalet was beautiful and so cozy that it made it hard to want to leave to return home. I can't wait to visit Alaska again and stay at the Above It All Chalet.

Thank you so much!! We will hopefully be returning to enjoy a stay in the summer months.

Cozy with breathtaking Winter Wonderland Views

  • 5 of 5

This cozy beautiful getaway is a perfect retreat. Having all the elements needed for an absolute true feeling of

"Home Away" with all the convenience of home. Clean tidy and just perfect in every way.

The location alone adds to making all worries just slip away and enjoy.

Alaska snow is the purest white and with more sparkles, my eyes have ever seen.

This Charming Chalet and host family were awesome!

Very kind and provided us with directions and sites to see.

We highly recommend this Chalet as your next destination of fun.

We enjoyed Cabelas, hitting the parks and or dining at Snow City. Or simply staying in by the cozy fireplace!

No doubt, we definitely hope to be on a return flight soon.

The folks in Alaska are so kind and you get a clear sense of community and electric energy all around.

Happy travels and to making memories! 😊򒭄️

Thanks Mike and Angie!!

Anchorage is the gateway to any outdoor Alaskan adventure you can imagine. Glacier viewing, hiking, skiing (both downhill and cross country), mountain biking, fishing (ocean and freshwater), kayaking, camping, and much, much more are all easily accessible from Above it All Chalet.

Not only the gateway to all Alaska's outdoor splendor, Anchorage is also the urban cultural hub of the state. You can spend your day hiking or fishing, and catch a Broadway production and enjoy fine dining in the evening!

Above it All Chalet is situated on a hillside approximately 20 minutes from downtown Anchorage. On 2 acres, our location lets you feel like you are leaving it all behind with all the conveniences of groceries, gas, and great restaurants only 5 minutes away!
