Our hosts were great and made us feel welcome. Both Cristina and Steve have a wealth of knowledge of the area and the local music scene. We enjoyed our stay and it was a bonus to meet the other guest.
Really enjoyed our stay, nice location, accommodations, breakfast materials, private refrig, and the rest! Steve and Christina are interesting and engaging... we will be back, thanks!
Our stay with Steve and Cristina was great! It is a nice location and downstairs suite! The hosts were interesting and engaging!! Lots of local information, dvd entertainment, and breakfast groceries were provided! We will be back!!
Stayed there for 4 nights with my mom and 6 month old baby. Cristina and Steve were extremely prompt and helpful. The place is neat and spacious. It is within walking distance to the Mendenhall glacier and quite a few cool hiking trails. Cupboards and fridge were well stocked with breakfast items and kitchen is well equipped. Thank you for such a pleasant experience.
Great experience staying with Christina and Steve. They were both very knowledgeable about things to do in the area and were both very nice. House was cozy, beds were comfortable, everything we needed was available. No complaints, I recommend staying here.
We arrived on Christmas Day and there were no rentals, restaurants or grocery shops open. What's worse, our luggages were missing. Cristina and Steve were so helpful that they not only offered food but also many rides to the airport. Steve also brought us to the glacier park for a hike. Many thanks!
