Interaction with Guests

I'll greet you, make sure you are comfortable, respect your privacy and stay out of your way, unless you need some advice on touring Anchorage, or just want to chat. You're renting the guest room and guest bathroom, but feel free to use the living room, dining area and kitchen. My bedroom and bathroom are in the back, and that door will be locked when I am out.

The Neighborhood

Carrs/Safeway is two blocks away and open 24/7. Downtown is an easy walk, 5 or 6 blocks. The Anchorage Athletic Club is nearby. They offer a 12-day guest membership for $20. Cordova Street, just one block away, becomes the racecourse for the Fur Rondy sled dog races and the ceremonial start of the Iditarod. The Chester Valley sports complex and access to the Chester Creek trail are a few blocks south. The upscale Fifth Avenue Mall is within walking distance and we have ZERO sales tax in Anchorage.

Getting Around

Taxi from the airport costs about $20. I can also arrange an airport pick-up for you. The PeopleMover bus stop is one block away. The 13 bus heads downtown OR outbound to the all the major medical centers and UAA. The inbound bus will take you to the downtown transit center where you can transfer to other lines. I also have bikes available for you to rent.

Other Things to Note

We have two saunas in the building. Anchorage has a vast system of bike trails that double as cross-country ski trails in the snowy months. Access to the Chester Creek trail is just a few blocks away. I have a massage table that I can set up and make available to you.
