Very nice house with all the amenities you would want.

Location is excellent. In the woods but close to Anchorage and next to Potter's Marsh where we went daily to see Bald Eagles, Moose and Salmon. Thanks Vicki!

Great location for Anchorage day trips

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son, daughter, and I had the best time in Anchorage for the first half of our AK adventures--what a great home and location for making base camp as we set out to see southern Alaska. Very true to the VRBO description, the house is in a very private neighborhood in the southern part of Anchorage, and that was perfect for trips to Seward, Girdwood, and downtown, and it was so close to Flattop Mtn, too. Didn't see any wildlife in the yard, but expected to each day, and saw plenty when we were out. Very convenient to grocery, which saved us plenty on eating out, and the house was well-appointed with all we need--very nicely decorated; great kitchen, bedrooms, and deck with grill. Can't thank you enough, Vicki for a fantastic stay! Brian & Brenda D.

New Year's in Anchoarge

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved everything about our stay in Anchorage, and this home was the perfect base for everything we wanted to do. First, let me say that the home is beautiful! It was clean, well stocked, and had great beds with comfy pillows and bedding. The heater worked great which was key in 0 degree weather, and the hosts Tom and Vicki were wonderful. One of the best things for sure is the location. The home feels like your in the middle of the woods, which you kind of are, but you are also close to everything you need in the city. The views from the house were breath-taking, and we were actually able to see the Northern Lights from the backyard! We were able to easily get to Girdwood for Skiing and snow-mobiling, and up to Palmer for a sleigh ride. We will definitely be back soon to enjoy a summer vacation, and couldn't imagine staying anywhere else! Thanks for everything!

Gorgeous home nestled in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Stunning, beautiful, great location with wonderful view. Gorgeous secluded home with posh amenities.

Well worth the money. The owner went out of her way to accommodate our very late arrival and make everything comfortable. Great base from which to explore the surrounding areas, from Seward to Talkeepna. We couldn't have been happier staying at this home.
