About this listing
Small, but beautiful condo in the heart of downtown Anchorage, Alaska. This condo is across the street from the famed Tony Knowles Coastal Trail and located just a few blocks from great shops and restaurants. It is also an easy walking distance from the Alaska Railroad Depot, the starting place of many great Alaskan destinations.
The neighborhood, known as "Bootlegger's Cove" is extremely quiet and the views of Mt. Susitna (Sleeping Lady) are spectacular, not to mention the 20+ hours of daylight in the summer months.
The bus stop for public transport is located approximately 2 blocks from the unit, with the main bus depot a 10 minute walk away.
I do have a bicycle available for your use if you wish. The trail can be accessed approximately 4-5 blocks from the unit and winds throughout Anchorage from Far North Bicentennial Park (with single track access to the Chugach Mountain hiking/biking/skiing areas) to Kincaid Park (maintained by the Nordic Ski Club).
The coin operated laundry facility is right across the breezeway, but rarely used on weekdays. Tenants are asked to keep the area clean and remove laundry promptly when finished.
You will have one designated parking space, and there are other spaces located adjacent to the unit that are city owned, but free to the public as long as your car is not parked in the same spot for over 48 hours without being moved.
Interaction with Guests
I am a teacher and travel during the summer, so I will more than likely not be here to greet you. My next-door neighbor, however, will be both managing and cleaning the condo during my absence, and she will be able to answer any questions you may have or provide you with any necessary supplies that may be running low.
Other Things to Note
In order to comply with local laws, a 12% bed tax has already been added into the daily rental fee.
This is a very quiet neighborhood. My neighbors are wonderful....a true community. We abide by the municipal codes for noise levels - 9:30 P.M. -9:00 A.M are the quiet hours, but for summertime in Alaska most people are willing to bend the rules a bit.
No smoking is permitted in my unit. Guests who do smoke are asked to do so away from the complex, especially if there are open windows.
