Thank you for leaving the house as you found it.
From the start, Barbara was so helpful and responded within hours, sometimes minutes, to any of my questions. She even provided lots of details of places to go and things to do, most of which we took her up on.
After a disastrous experience with our airline including massive delays and lost luggage, it was a breath of fresh air to walk into Barbara's immaculate house. We spent 10 nights & 11 days and rented the entire house and felt as though we were in our own home. We lacked toiletries the first few days (thanks to United) and she graciously had items to share. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome basket of fresh fruit, cookies and granola bars; not to mention champagne in the fridge. Although we don't drink, it was a nice gift for the wedding party we were a part of.
When traveling, it's always hard to eat healthier/homemade meals but her fantastic, gourmet kitchen was by far, a huge plus. We made almost every meal at home and was even able to host a dinner for the wedding party. Everything about our stay was spectacular. Abundant sunlight, comfortable bed, amazing kitchen and of course, a car helped a ton for all of our day trips.
As some reviews have mentioned, there isn't a TV, but really, who needs one? You're in Alaska, enjoy the outdoors and if you want to catch the news, there's an app for that. Or bring a laptop, wifi is readily available.
The ONLY thing that was more of an annoyance and in no way Barbara's fault was the early morning planes. Being close to the airport was a convenience, however, I'm a painfully light sleeper so every time a plane landed or took off, I woke up. The larger planes were fine but it was the smaller, Cessna planes that did me in.
But overall, what a fabulous experience and amazing host. You won't be disappointed if you stay. Our trip to Alaska was wonderful largely because of our amazing accommodations.
Barbara was a great host! She gave great recommendations about what to see and do during our stay there. The house is in a great location, less than 5 minutes away from the airport and downtown Anchorage. The beds are very comfortable, and the blinds in the rooms keep the Alaskan summer sun out. One thing some people may dislike is that there is no TV in the house, but that didn't matter to me since I didn't come to Alaska to watch TV. The internet at the house is very fast and worked well. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Anchorage.
We loved staying at Sweet Contemporary Anchorage Home during our stay in Alaska. All of our needs were met from a comfy place to rest our heads, an amazing place to cook, plenty of space for when we all needed our alone time, and a hot tub to hang out during the sunny night time hours (which was completed with a rainbow at 10pm at night when we were using it). The experience did not include a TV... which I didn't mind because who needs a TV when you're vacationing in Alaska... just an FYI to those needing to get their daily intake.
After each day out on our adventures, coming back to this place felt like home away from home.
This home is beautiful and clean. Delicious coffee, breads and fruit were provided for breakfast. Wine for a price was also available. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to use. Stackable washer and dryer were great. The neighborhood was basically quiet. Beds were comfortable! We slept so well! There is no TV so if keeping up with sports scores or news is important you may want to bring your own device. Wireless internet is provided. You will need a vehicle. There is nothing within walking distance.
