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.
Great Place! Peggy's apartment was very clean and comfortable, with a well stocked kitchen. We so appreciate Peggy giving up her home to visitors. We came to Anchorage to visit our son, who took us all around the city, and we can definitely say this is one of the better neighborhoods, so close to all downtown attractions and trails. A very quiet and beautiful neighborhood, right on the Cook Inlet. We would definitively enjoy staying here in the future. We would recommend this property to all Anchorage visitors.
This was the perfect place to end our 3-week Alaskan Adventure. Two nights here, right near the Coastal Bike Trail and the outskirts of downtown, were so nice and very comfortable. Great decorating in all the rooms + a complete kitchen.
Peggy's place was exactly what we were looking for. It was centrally located and within walking distance to loads of restaurants. We were also able to walk to Avis car rental, the train station and the grocery store. The apartment was clean and tidy and stocked with anything we could have asked for. We were able to enjoy breakfast in both mornings as we had access to a full kitchen. We will definitely stay here again if we make our way back to Anchorage.
The condo is close to downtown and you can see the ocean from the main window. The facility is super clean and nicely decorated. Peggy responded quickly.
Peggy was very communicative ahead of time and had plenty of information available in binders at her space. It was also very clean. It's only a short walk out of the neighborhood and into a busier section where there are plenty of restaurants, shops, bike rental shops, and busses available. Great location especially for those who don't have a car with them.
The host was very helpful and friendly, even from afar, and the place was just as described. Cozy and clean and very functional for plopping down for a day of relaxing after travelling. Thanks.
Overall it was a wonderful experience. Everything in the listing was 100% accurate and there were even more amenities than described. Picking up the key (at the apt. Door) a piece of cake. There were helpful and useful written details regarding everything to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The apt. is in a lovely area, close to the water and downtown Anchorage. the Hostess was more than gracious!
About the Host, Peggy
I am a veteran teacher and have been in Alaska since 1969. Although I love Alaska and all it has to offer, I want the freedom to be able to travel during the summer months, as well as the winter and spring breaks and would like to know that my little place is well taken care of while I am away. I will return the favor if I stay in your home.
I'm new to this site, but have had many friends who have had great experiences with Airbnb.
