ALL 5-star guest reviews like this one:

" I have traveled around the world and stayed at many hotels and I must say this apartment is like nothing I've ever imagined. In a way it was better than many 5 star hotels I've been simply because these host has thought about everything single thing that will make their guests feel at home and comfortable. The level of comfort here is superb. There was nothing short or in need of( maybe a private butler?)..."

When we travel, we have high expectations for accommodations and service so as owner hosts we set high standards to assure our guests enjoy the best stay.

As a young boy, Paul was awed by a photo of Alaska's Mt. McKinley (Denali) and determined to visit Alaska. At age 17 his dream came true. Now after 40 plus years here working as a biologist, hunting and fishing this great land, Alaska's majestic scenery and amazing wildlife continue to awe him.

When Darlene isn't managing our Anchorage rentals, she loves designing & creating hand-tatted snow lace jewelry which she sells locally & online (Lacy Treasures Jewelry).

We hope we can help make your dream trip to Alaska come true, too!

Paul and Darlene purchased this apartment in 2014

Guestbook comments from the owner

"This place was seriously amazing. It was extremely easy to get there. To get inside, the keypad is right next to the door with physical keys. It makes it really convenient if you don't want to hang on to them you can just put them back in the box. It took about 3 seconds to get the keys. Once we walked inside it was beautiful, warm and felt like home. If you forgot anything like a blow dryer they have one for you. Forgot makeup remover pads? They got em. They even have little lunch bags for you to use! This place was well worth the price. When we make a trip back to anchorage we're definitely going to try to get this place again."

Wonderful inviting place to make your stay in Anchorage, AK. Most relaxing vacation we have had in 10 years. Very close to all shopping, airport, restaurants and other needed places to make your stay easier. Love the easy commute to train depot and highway access. We will be sharing this experience with many friends and family members. Highly recommending this as the place to stay while in Anchorage. Friendly couple who own and operate this establishment, nice location, extremely clean inside and out. Can not wait to travel to Alaska again!

Perfect, charming and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have asked for a better place in Anchorage to stay! Perfect, well maintained apartment with everything you need. Paul and Darlene were amazing hosts, they even cleared off our car when it snowed! We will definitely try to book this rental next time we are in town! Bonus points for an awesome collection of Alaska related books!

So Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this place. I found myself looking around at details of the rental looking for things that we could do in our own home. It was so cozy and beautifully done. It feels brand new and very high quality. Even my 15 year old son kept commenting on how nice it was. Will definitely be back!

Super clean, cozy, private and just the right amount of fancy.

  • 5 of 5

I'm honestly conflicted about this review; on the one hand we absolutely loved this place and had a wonderful time. On the other hand I'm hesitant to say just how great it was because I don't want everybody to fall in love with it and book it all up!

Paul and Darlene were great. They checked in with us via text a few times during our week stay to make sure everything was going well.

We loved this place so much! The private exterior entrance was great. We loved the convenience of the washer and dryer. The bed was spectacular! (It is a firm memory foam so it took some getting used to but then we loooooved it! Actually helped put my back back in over our stay.) The Tivo was fun. The whole place was super clean and just fancy enough that you felt pampered but not so fancy that we were uncomfortable. Very safe, quiet neighborhood too. And Paul plowed the snow that we got one day, so nice.

We loved this place. We live in Alaska and plan to come back to this little spot next year. Thanks to Paul and Darlene for all their care.
