    In Anchorage area for a family wedding.

    We loved the location of this property. Very convenient to highway, grocery store. House was very clean and comfortable. It was nice knowing the owners were right next door and were available if we needed anything but we also had complete privacy and never saw them after our initial check in with Jay. Loved the back patio and front porch. Beds were very comfortable and the towels were large and luxurious. Would definitely stay here again.

    First trip to Alaska

    This was a nice house to stay in. Very clean and plenty of space. We made many day trips and it was nice to have a home base where we could come back and enjoy the evenings.

    Comfortable and Clean Place to Stay

    Beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were clean and roomy. Lots of closet space. Nice living area. Kitchen had the basic needs. Loved the hardwood floors. Nice backyard space with fire table. Jay and Sonia were very helpful. Loved that they were next door in case we had a question. Simple rules. Easy checking and check out procedures. Made our ten day stay so enjoyable.

    Nice property.

    Communication with owners and rental process was great. Nice property that was better stocked (paper products, cleaners, toiletries, etc.) than other rentals we’ve used.

    1st Time in AK from the Sister Lower 48!

    It was our first time visiting Alaska and instantly knew we wanted to stay in a VRBO vs a hotel so that we could comfortably unwind after the day’s activities. Being from Hawai’i, we searched for properties that had a full kitchen, access to a grill and a fireplace. The fireplace because those don’t exist in Hawai’i! Our search found Sonia & Jay’s lovely abode. It surpassed all our expectations! The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath allowed the 4 of us to be comfortable and then some. Their home can sleep 10! Check-in, the stay and check-out was seamless. Although they live right next door, they are as hands on and/off as you would like. We bothered them to bring out the grill to cook Easter dinner, which they did promptly! Best plus was using the in-house washer/dryer to do all our laundry before heading back home. Best plus plus was all the artwork that Sonia painted herself that are displayed on every room. Mahalo Sonia and Jay for sharing your home with us!

    Wonderful Experience

    This house was a perfect base for our bucket-list trip to Alaska. The hosts were extremely helpful with notes on things in the house as well as suggestions for activities and restaurants nearby in Anchorage. Everything was clean and nicely decorated - a great home away from home!

    Beautiful

    This was such a nice place, in a nice neighborhood. Very clean and comfortable. Thanks for allowing our group of teens make themselves at home! They really enjoyed their stay.
