Guest Review:

" 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?)..."

About Paul and Darlene


TOP-rated Anchorage Vacation / Corporate Rentals

Our 5-star reviews tell it all.

See our 2-bedroom House rental VRBO #410816 (similar rates). Sleeps 6.

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!

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."

  • 5 of 5

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!

A highlight of our visit!

  • 5 of 5

We had a long flight and a very early morning check-in; so, we were very appreciative of the ease with which were were able to settle in to a very clean, comfortable, very nicely appointed one-bedroom apartment. There were snacks for us that helped to mitigate the fact that we had missed a couple of meals on this travel day. The setting for this rental is great -- right across the road from beautiful Campbell Lake in a very nice neighborhood. Darlene and Paul had thought of everything to make their rental the perfect home for travelers. We were really happy to have a washer and dryer. We lived in Alaska for three years and were back to visit relatives living just 3 miles away. We consider our good fortune in finding this rental to be one of the highlights of our trip. It was perfect!

This is the perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, clean, and beautiful place to stay for your trip to Anchorage, this is it! The bed is incredibly comfortable and the blinds cover the bedroom windows fully--with the addition of the black out curtains, it was a perfect set-up for a great night's sleep (especially when you are off time zones!). We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Darlene and Paul were so welcoming and she had everything you could need. The washer/dryer was fantastic and the whole place was just beautiful. If we come back to see the Northern Lights, we'll be back here to stay! :) Thank you, Darlene and Paul!

Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

I was in town for 10 days for my brother's graduation and loved having this wonderful place to stay at night. It was very easy to find and in a quiet neighborhood. SUPER cozy and clean with any of the necessities you may need for your stay. The owners are very responsive too! I have recommended this place to my family who live in Anchorage as a place to consider when they have out-of-town guests in the future. I will definitely book this place my next trip!
