Downstairs of large single family home in East Anchorage which includes two bedrooms (one queen and two singles) I am a medical professional who has lived in Anchorage since 1969. I have two dogs which are kept separate from guests, unless the guests choose to interact with them. They are large, but very friendly.
Children are welcome.

Extensive network of biking/running trails within 100 yards.
Two daily bikes available for use.
Hot tub and kitchen available for use.
Sunny south facing deck with seating to enjoy the long daylight hours.
Both moose and bears have been seen in the neighborhood.
Guests are free to use the kitchen to cook. They can store food in the refrigerator.

Interaction with Guests
As much as they like.
I live in an older neighborhood, with a great view of the mountains. Nice walking/bike paths nearby. Good espresso about a quarter mile away.
There are several bus stops close by and guests can get some places, but it is not the best public transport system. Rental cars are the best option if you are here for more than a night. Otherwise a cab to/from the airport or train station usually is fine.
Other Things to Note
I love doing this. I've met the most awesome people from all over the world. I try to go above and beyond so that each guests trip to Alaska is the best that it can be.
Check in at 3pm. Check out at noon. Strict non-smoking policy. Please clean up if you use the kitchen. No eating/drinking on the carpet in the big bedroom downstairs.
Shelly is a very nice person, btw, it is very hard to tell that she got two daughters.....she looked so young with so many energies....House is blue quite and nice clean just as the picture showes. If you wanna come to anchorage , this house should be your wise choice, since it is just near a major road called Tudor. Thanks Shelly and his husband for their kind caring of taking dogs away every time, since my son kind of afraid of dogs, but he got be ok after one day staying. Totally, this is a nice experience of staying here.
Lovely home in lovely neighbourhood...very conveniently located
Had a nice time in Anchorage, which was mostly thanks to the great place Shelly had for us! The place was very clean and the dogs were extremely friendly as promised. The hot tub is fantastic after a long day of hiking. Shelly is a fantastic host as well! Although I didn't actually get to meet her this time around, she was very accommodating and answered all my questions that I had about the area. Would return here for sure.
Very nice and comfortable space. Lots of sleeping space. Cute and very clean home. Dogs were so mellow and hardly noticeable. Everything was great. Short drive with exact directions. Car rental is a must to see Anchorage and other areas. Great hostess!
We came to see the ceremonial start of the Iditarod. Our experience at Shelly's exceeded even our high expectations from reading others' reviews. The space is large, comfortable, and freshly decorated. The location is suburban and provides a good feel for a lot of what we saw of life in Anchorage. Shelly helped us meet all our trip goals while also treating our space as private.
This is what Airbnb is all about folks!
We really enjoyed staying at Shelly's home! Even though we didn't get to meet her (she was on a camping trip), she made sure to contact me about our arrival time and made sure we could welcome ourselves into her home. She also left us all the info we needed to make ourselves comfortable. Shelly's place is extremely convenient for those using Anchorage as a pit-stop -- it's only a 10 minute drive to the airport, and the best pizza place in town called Moose's Tooth Pizzeria is only a 5 minute drive away. Dogs are really cute and friendly as well :) Would definitely stay here again!
