About this listing
Welcome to our lovely abode, located in one of Anchorage's most desirable and convenient neighborhoods! The available room is separate from the main living space and features its own bathroom, queen sized bed, queen futon, wifi, TV, and more!
Our home is in a long established residential neighborhood and has the unique feature of being located on 2 corners, so we have only one next door neighbor. Very quiet!
Private with plenty of room to chill out! The bedroom, bathroom, and coffee/tea prep area are on the first floor of our split level. Our bedroom and the main living space are upstairs, so everyone gets plenty of privacy and room to relax. The space features a queen sized pillow-top bed and a futon that can be made into a comfortable queen for additional guests. There is a flat screen TV with a Wii for movie streaming, and access to our powerful wifi. In the room we have a small bureau and closet space available, and our laundry room is just down the hall. There is a nook outside the bathroom with a coffee maker and tea kettle. It's stocked with coffee, tea, creamer, and more. If you'll be hanging out for a while, in the room there are loads of board games, a little library, and a record player with a sweet collection of tunes.
For the convenience of our guests, you may arrange to drop off your bags and pick up the key prior to your actual check-in if you would like. Just let us know what works for you, and we'll figure it out! Guests are welcome to enjoy our yard or use our small home gym. We have a cozy retro kitchen upstairs and we can always make a little room in the fridge for your goodies.
Interaction with Guests
We like getting to know our guests, but we also enjoy our privacy. We imagine the feeling for our visitors is much the same - and so we have designed the space almost like its own apartment where there is room to hang out & relax - not just a place to sleep.
We are within walking distance of several excellent restaurants - such as Anchorage's favorite pizza pub, Moose's Tooth (not to be missed!!!). We are also located just one block from the city's extensive trail system, which is used year round for walking & biking and becomes groomed ski trails in the winter. We are only a 5 minute drive from downtown, 10-15 minutes to the airport, and our location makes it easy to hop on or off the Seward Highway to head North (Talkeetna, Denali, Fairbanks) or South (Seward, Kenai, Homer).
There is plenty of on-street parking right in front of our house. The People Mover bus has several stops in each direction, just a 5 minute walk from the house. Also, getting around via cab is easy & inexpensive due to our central location.
Other Things to Note
If you're not into pets, our place may not be for you. Our dogs love visitors and our cat takes a bit to warm up... but once they know you, they'll fall in love and want to run away with you! Bailey & Penelope can go out back in the fenced yard anytime, and Jack the cat is free to go in & out the front or back. Being a beagle, Bailey will take whatever chance she can to follow her nose - so please be aware of closing the door firmly behind you, latching the gate, and so on. We'd hate to lose our little runaway. We have a doggy gate that keeps the pups upstairs, but they love popping downstairs for a visit when our guests are up for it.
We keep the house locked at night, so please follow suit and also make sure the door is locked when coming & going. Also, because the latch is funky it needs a little extra push or pull (listen for the click) when closing, or it will swing open on its own. Please keep food out of the dogs' reach when you're not around - feel free to store it in our kitchen. A little people food snack is fine, but we don't want them scarfing down your dozen donuts. No smoking inside, but it's a-ok outside. Otherwise, we just ask that you abide by the Golden Rule and use your common sense!
