Welcome to Casa del Agave.
We are conveniently located 12 minutes from the airport and downtown. Casa del Agave is a great place to base yourself if you want to explore Anchorage and the surrounding areas.
We have 2 bedrooms (one bed in each) available that adjoin a private bath and den. The additional bedroom, right next to yours, is available for $25.00 extra which makes our space perfect for couples traveling together. To ensure your comfort and privacy this extra bedroom will only be rented to guests traveling together. Its just the two of us in a dog/cat free house.
The den is equipped with a 46-inch flat screen TV with DVD/Blu-ray, Wii, Amazon streaming, secure wireless internet and a selection of movies.
There is a microwave, refrigerator, coffee pot and tea kettle for your use. We provide your choice of a Kenai breakfast burrito (sausage and egg) or Bad Hunter (vegetarian) breakfast burrito, coffee and tea to get you started in the morning.
The den has a sliding glass door that opens on to a huge deck with lounge chairs to unwind at the end of a busy day.
I will always try to meet you when you first arrive at the house. You will have a code to the front door and can come and go as you please.
Interaction with Guests
Our house is essentially divided into two sections with the entrance being the only common area. You can choose to interact with us as much as you want or not at all.
We enjoy having chats with our guest over a cup of coffee or wine. We are available if guests would like suggestions about things to do and see.
If we don't have evening plans we often like sharing a casual meal.
There are many incredible scenic hiking and biking trails nearby. Downtown Anchorage also offers an array of different activities in summer and winter.
There is a bus stop a few blocks from our house.
No smoking and please leave your shoes at the door.
The place was awesome with a nice bedroom and a cozy living room with a television. The interior furbishing was special, and there were comfy beanbags as well. We had 4 people so 2 of us took the bed and the other 2 slept on the beanbags (there were blankets on them). Toiletries including towels were all provided for and there was a plate of welcome brownies that we enjoyed very much. Im definitely getting the recipe from her. Breakfast was provided to. We only stayed for a morning but we wished we could stay longer!
I had a very unexpected late arrival the day I was to check in. Dave kept in contact with me and and gave me clear and easy instuctions for getting into the house once I finally arrived. They were very flexible and understanding of my situation. The next day when I finally met them, if felt like I was visiting with old friends or family members I hadn't seen in many years. The area they have for guests is so comfortable, warm, and inviting! I wish I had a reason to stay here longer! Plus they have homemade breakfast burritos and a coffee/tea station which was great to have on the days of my early morning class! The neighborhood is quiet and close to major shopping areas and major roads. I wish I was super articulate and could write in a way that would convince everyone that this is the best place to stay in Anchorage with the nicest people!! Thanks Diane and Dave!!
I just stayed with Dave and Diane for the second time, and I can state emphatically that their place is lovely, clean and cozy. The rental area is private and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The bed is incredibly comfortable, as are the recliners in the den area. Dave and Diane are wonderfully welcoming and accommodating hosts. They stock the rental with extras, like breakfast burritos, homemade cookies, and gourmet coffee. Their place is a true bargain. I will be back!
They are really kind and friendly. Though we contacted them in a very short time ahead and arrived past midnight, they responded very fast and mailed us how to reach the house and their contact in case of problem.
The unit is very comfort with the two bedroom. The bed is most comfortable as I ever had, made us really relax after the long flight.
Dave also prepare burritos for breakfast in refrigerator. The utility of the coffee corner, bathroom was sufficient, had everything we could possibly need. Next time we would definitely stay here again, since this time was too short to explore here and Dave 's place made me feel like stay home in Alaska.
Warming welcome. They are very friendly and kind. The house is lovely, clean and convienent. I love it!
we arrived very late at might night, sorry for that. we met Diane, she's very kind person, nice to communicate. we didn't see Dave, but he was sending me many massage for make sure we have a nice stay. and their house rally nice condition, clean, cozy. thanks Diane&Dave
We are both professionals that have lived and worked and played in Alaska and Anchorage for most of our adult lives.
For the last several years we have traveled extensively and enjoyed staying with Air BnB host along with family homestays. It's been a positive experience for us and we decided to open up our home as well. We enjoy good coffee, sharing food with friends and an occasional glass of locally-brewed beer or wine. We have very good local knowledge to make your stay even more pleasurable. We love all that Alaska has to offer such as biking, hiking, rafting, camping and exploring different parts of this magnificent state.
