My cute, cozy home has a hide-a-bed in the living room that I am offering to women traveling alone, on a budget. The home is on a quiet street, just 5-10 minutes walk to downtown or the grocery store. The bath is shared. You'll have access to the kitchen, back deck, etc.

The space

This was the first Airbnb listing in Sitka. It's a small house, but very cute. You will be sleeping on the hide-a-bed in the living room/kitchen area, and sharing the only bathroom. You will also have a place to change and leave your things in my 'office'. If you want to feel that you're staying with a friend, then this is the place for you. The only caveat: If you need to go to bed before about 9pm or sleep in past 8am, this may not be the best place for you.

Guest access

You will have the living room to yourself after 9 or 10 pm. You will have use of the kitchen and shared bath. In the summer, the back deck is a nice place to relax in the evening. No TV, but wireless Internet, and you can watch movies.

Interaction with guests

I'm happy to interact with guests as much as they like. From my four years experience, my guests are mostly professional women with whom I share some common interests. I may be working part time during your stay, but should otherwise be around, should you wish to have a dinner partner or glass of wine together.

Other things to note

Some breakfast foods will always be available and included in the price. You're welcome to use the kitchen and fix your own.

I do have two cats, Brie and Cheddar, that spend almost all of their time outdoors.

Sheila welcomed me like a long-lost friend. The fold-out couch bed was just right, everything was spotless, she made a great cup of coffee and offered other goodies in her fridge for breakfast. Even took me on a drive around Sitka, and offered to pick me up at the airport. The place was very convenient for me--I loved walking to town, which was quite close, and even walked right to the Russian cemetery from her house, which was fascinating. Very convenient for me, and it felt good to "discover" the little treasures of Sitka--historical sites, farmers market, a great massage therapist, the wonderful people--and then return to Sheila's sweet place for three nights. Would definitely recommend.

Sheila is delightful! The location of her lovely home is very close to downtown shopping and activities and she knows all the best hot spots to see and places to eat. I had the best time- I only wish I'd had more than one night at her home. Highly recommend!

I am now mostly 'retired', but sometimes work part-time. My Alaska career included ten years as founding director of a non-profit, director of the Chamber of Commerce, and staff for a state legislator. I also ran for State House during 2016. I decided to become an Airbnb host …
