About this listing
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 two bedrooms (one bed in each) available that adjoin a private bath and den. The additional bedroom, right next to yours, is available for an additional $25.00/nt. This makes the space perfect for couples or families 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 video, 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 (egg and potato) 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. The guest area is downstairs, on the ground floor. We live upstairs. 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.
My family and I had a wonderful stay. Dave was very welcoming and helpful (didn't get a chance to meet Diana), and I enjoyed hearing about all the concerts that he goes to. The place was super clean and had nice amenities. There were four of us, and we had more than enough towels. I didn't end up taking any, but there were also books and free goodies that were offered. There were also some basic kitchen items and appliances that were there for our use to make coffee/tea that was provided and heat up food as needed. We did have some of their homemade burritos and cookies, and they were delicious! The location of the place is close to the center with a car. Overall, the space felt private and was very comfortable.
The space was very much as depicted, clean nicely appointed, a very comfortable space, ...with very thoughtful provisions in the den (coffee, tea, hotpot, coffee pot, microwave, knife cutting board, paper plates glasses coffee cups and utensils for a light snack)
den is dedicated space, but is open to the entryway (does not have a door)
Diane and Dave are great. They made themselves available with my hectic schedule. Everything was set up for my midnight arrival. Super comfortable bed and cozy den with oversized recliners. Perfect place to relax after my flight into Anchorage. The homemade cookies were a perfect midnight snack. I was in Alaska for the weekend and wasn't sure whether or not I'd be driving back to Anchorage the night before I left or the morning of. Dave and Diane allowed me to keep in contact so I could book their place in case I came back early. I ended up staying there on my last night in Alaska and it was a wonderful end to a beautiful vacation. Thanks so much for welcoming me into your home and for being such gracious hosts. Great first time airbnb experience. You've set the bar high.
这是我第一次在airbnb上订房，结果让我和家人都很惊喜。Dave的房子离ANC 机场大约十几分钟的车程，也很容易找到。到达前我已经和Dave取得联系，Dave 已经在家等着我们。他是一个很和善和乐于交流的人，在阿拉斯加的旅行上也给了我们很多有用的建议，参观阿拉斯加野生动物保护中心就是他给我们的提议，在那里的体验给我们，特别是我儿子是一个大惊喜，Dave给我们的优惠券还可以免去了一张成人门票。
房间以及所有配套都是在一楼，看得出Diane & Dave 在保证房客的私密性上颇费了些心思，所有的布置都很贴心，感觉像回到家一样方便。给人难忘回忆的是那个大大的后花园，一大片草坪和几把躺椅就给旅途带来了不一样的体验，很放松、惬意。
Diane and Dave offer a lovely homely place in a quiet neighbourhood but not far from central Anchorage. They are lovely and very welcoming hosts who make you feel very comfortable. I cannot think of a better place to stay. Everything is exactly as described in the ad and I can only recommend them.
My husband and I stayed here for one-night on our way north to Denali, and we thought the place was so comfortable and nicely furnished and decorated. Think fascinating classic rock framed memorabilia and 2 plush recliners! Dave and his daughter Holly were great hosts, and we were sorry to have missed meeting the real brains behind the unit, Diane, who was river rafting for 2 weeks.
Our family voted this place as the best among all the places we stayed during our 8-day trip in Alaska. The bedrooms and the living room look much better than the photos on the Website. We all have a good sleep at night. Dave and Diane are well organized and nice to us. They really attend to details, providing everything we need. We can make some easy cooking using the boiler and microwave in the living room. The place is only 12 mins drive to the airport and 7 mins to a big shopping center. BTW, the couple are music fans. Really cool!
About the Host, 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.
