About This Listing
A clean and private guesthouse, backed against the mountains in Anchorage. Simple, quiet and comfortable, it offers a large living space and bedroom with private bath, kitchenette and a separate driveway and entrance.
The guesthouse was renovated in 2013. It features a private driveway and entrance, an elegant layout while attached to an older home where the owner lives. It is cleaned and restocked between guests.
Note: On main listing, Airbnb advertises the lowest prices available on the calendar, so be sure to verify rates for the specific days when booking in advance.
The setting couldn't be more Alaskan. It is nestled in a south Anchorage neighborhood, where natural mossy landscapes, old knotty trees, wild fiddle-head ferns and the occasional wild animal can be found.
It feels like country here, but it's tucked away in the city so you still have immediate access to everything you need for dining out, entertainment, relaxation.

- Complementary wi-fi (wireless internet) and streaming movies.
- Professional cleaning prior to every check in
stocked with clean sheets, blankets and towels.

Interaction with Guests
While the owner lives downstairs, the guesthouse provides complete privacy and requires no shared spaces or rooms. The owner is usually nearby and available to answer questions and help if needed, and available via phone.
The houses are far apart in a fairly wooded neighborhood, each on an acre or more of land that has been homesteaded since the 1950's. It is quiet and one of the friendliest neighborhoods in Anchorage.
Its about three minutes drive from grocery and drug stores, restaurants, zoo, shops, and it is easy to access both highways that lead out of town. The public bus does not service our street, so your own transportation is preferable. A taxi is about $25 from the airport, and takes about 15 minutes.
Other Things to Note
Pricing: I have no hidden fees. I do offer a discounted winter rate, and an intermediate rate in spring and fall because Alaska has less tourism during those months. Airbnb displays the lowest rate availble, so if you are booking for a time in the future or a different season, the price may be different. Be sure to check the prices you are quoted before finalizing your payment on any listing. The guesthouse has a country-like appeal.
The guesthouse is in a low-density residential area of Anchorage. If you are looking for something in the city center, check out my other listing called "Immaculate! Midtown Charmer" - I also have a new 2-bedroom listing available near the airport. It will be available for long stays and month-to-month. Check out the links on my profile
Practice common courtesy.
• Communicate - let me know if you have any special needs or how I can make your stay more enjoyable. Let me know if you will be checking in late or if you have any travel troubles and need to change your plans. I am pretty laid back and flexible to change.
• You can smoke outside on the deck, but do not smoke inside.
• Remove shoes in the house. The guesthouse is upstairs and the floors are wood. Need I say more?
• Clean up after yourself. I don't charge a cleaning fee unless I have to work overtime to pick up your mess.
• We reserve 10 pm and 9 am for quiet time. There are permanent residents who have to go to bed and get up early.
• If you break anything, let me know.
• Check out is at 11 am.
This place is much bigger than we expected from the photos. It was plenty spacious when our UAA college kids dropped by for a few hours to visit us with some of their friends. Driving directions were accurate and it was easy to find; eateries and shopping ten minutes away (by car) and downtown Anchorage about 15 minutes by car. The windows provide bright and sunny light.
Jerami foi muito simpático e prestativo, se colocando à disposição caso precise de alguma coisa. O apartamento é muito espaçoso e limpo, idêntico às fotos do anúncio. O bairro é afastado o suficiente para ser tranquilo e silencioso, porém fica próximo das principais vias de acesso e comércio. Certamente me hospedaria novamente com Jerami e recomendo a todos que forem à Anchorage.
Jerami was a great host - very accommodating and easy to contact. The space was very comfortable and - most importantly for me - quiet :)
I'm a light sleeper and I need a quiet place to sleep. This place was perfect for that.
The home had everything I needed during my stay and I'll certainly stay there again.
The experience was as advertised. Although the place wasn't yet cleaned from previous tenants due to unforseen circumstances, Jerami let me know he would be over right after work to pick it up. The location was ideal and away from the noise of city life, yet only a five minute drive from town amenities. There is a good chance I will return in the future.
Just like what it is in the photos. Jerami is a very nice person. Almost everything needed will be provided.
Jerami was a great host! The accommodations were just as described and we had everything we needed for a perfect stay. Great location, close to everything, yet far enough away from the hubbub of downtown to be secluded and private. We'd definitely stay here again. Also, he had an excellent selection of reading material.

About the Host, Jerami
Jerami is a lifelong Alaskan mutt, with a Native Alaskan, Russian, European and Neanderthal ancestry. Much of his non-native family came to Alaska many years ago to trap, mine, fish and later, pioneer the bush pilot era.
From 1998 to 2002, Jerami served in the military, then came back to Alaska to work for the government for two years before going back to school at the University of Alaska. Jerami is a natural in the outdoors and worked as a fly-out fishing guide to pay his way through college from (phone number hidden). He earned a degree in public communications and journalism and learned that quiet guys can party and make friends too. But realizing writers are often destined to modest living, he turned to other means to supplement his income. Revitalizing homes and structures has been a perfect hobby (and hopefully) an investment for him, especially with unrealized childhood aspirations of becoming an architect. With a great love for travel, providing comfortable accommodations for international guests keeps him entertained between adventures. And ironically, he got a job working for a construction company...as a technical writer.
So he works a 8-5, renovates and manages properties. In his spare time, he cooks and brews, hikes and bikes, sail and travels, reads and writes, and dreams and does. He loves the outdoors, but loves the smell and sound of an old city all the same. For the time being, he lives at home with his girlfriend, a dog Isla and a cat Maisie. His girlfriend is an avid reader whose main goal in life is to put Jerami in his place when he tries acting smart (or not so smart).
The pets like to eat, sleep and chase mice. They have quite the life - as do the guests, however brief their stay at Jerami's might be.
