The space

This duplex is located in the heart of Anchorage. Located less than 15 minutes from anywhere in town, this duplex has 2 bedrooms, 1 car garage, sleeps 5 comfortably and has a great yard for BBQ and lounging. The neighborhood is very friendly and fun. This house is located near parks, trails and an elementary school. Family and pet friendly, kept professionally clean at all times and owner is easy to get in touch with at any time!

Wireless Internet, Dish Network DVR, Full Kitchen, Heated Garage, Fenced Yard, Wood Burning Fireplace

I am not at the location so I will only be interacting as necessary for logistics.

Family Friendly neighborhood, right next to an elementary school with a large playground and Campbell Creek with a newly reconstructed playground as well.

There is public transit but I would always recommend renting a vehicle to get around as things are spaced out quite a bit in Alaska.

Guest access

Free Wifi, Garage, Dish Network, TV and DVD/Blu Ray Player in Bedroom 1 and living room.

Interaction with guests

I usually communicate VIA Text/Phone Call/Airbnb and usually do not see my clients in person as it is a vacation rental property and most of my guests prefer the private "home" feeling and privacy.

Other things to note

Dogs are allowed, there is a pet fee for additional cleaning after move out.
Stays over 30 nights require larger cleaning fees

We ask that you respect the house rules of the home that you book. Violations of house rules can result in additional charges or termination of the booking. We understand that as a guest you have common sense and are courteous enough to follow these rules but as a business we have to ensure that policies, restrictions and challenges are made clear. Please review these policies prior to booking.

If you are traveling as part of a large party, we do have rentals that are attached or near one another. The Big Big House is a 12 Bedroom Home that we have separated into 6 different “units.” Request more than one of these units to accommodate your larger groups. We work with military, construction and business crews, medical crews, churches, traveling groups and more. The Big Big House can accommodate up to 35 person groups. The Midnight Skye Duplex, Aurora Skye, and Northern Aurora Duplexes can all also handle larger parties between 8-12 guests. Northern Aurora and Aurora Skye and are one lot from one another so a total of 4 units within walking distance of each other. Please contact us if you need help in accommodating a larger party. It is recommended that larger parties book well in advance, as our properties get scattered bookings for summer beginning in February/March and we normally take longer term rentals between October and April.

Rates/Fees
All rates are subject to change without notice. Rates will be confirmed at time of booking. Rates are subject to the city bed tax of 12% unless the stay is 30 plus days.

Occupancy/Additional Guests

We require the names of all individuals occupying the premises during your stay. Any additional occupancy by additional persons, beyond the specified maximum as listed below, could result in the forfeiture of our security deposit and/or early termination of your rental period, without refund of rental fees paid. No guests are permitted at our homes, other than the number specified in your rental agreement, without prior approval. In general, you can have up to two additional day guests, in addition to the maximum occupancy of the house, with prior approval, without charge. Occasionally, we will permit a few more day guests, but only with prior approval. (Please contact the owner of the property for approval.) Occupancy for each house is strict and absolutely no additional overnight guests are permitted. If additional overnight guests, or more than the approved day guests, are discovered, we will terminate the booking without refund. If we make the discovery after the booking is over, we will assess a $100 per night fee.

Non-Smoking Policy

All of our properties are NON-SMOKING. We do not permit smoking on the premises. We want our properties to stay clean and smoke free so this policy is highly enforced. Smokers must step 15 FT minimum away from the property in order to smoke and must properly dispose of their buttes. If this rule is violated or any evidence of smoking is found on the property and wasn’t reported from a previous stay, your booking will be terminated immediately and you will lose your entire security deposit and be banned from future rentals.

Quiet Hours

Our houses are located in very quiet areas and we ask that you respect the tranquility of our area. It is a violation of your rental agreement and of county ordinances to disturb neighbors with loud noise. If we get a complaint, we will call you or come to the house. If the noise persists, we will terminate the booking without refund. Some neighbors may simply call the police rather than contacting us. We ask that you observe the quiet hours of between 10PM and 8AM, each day of your visit. This request allows for the “quiet enjoyment” of other guests near the property.

Trash

When you leave your rental, please remove all food (except condiments/spices), place all trash in the trash cans, and make sure the trash cans are placed in the appropriate place per the check-out sheet in your rental. The trash pick-up day or dumpsters is noted on the check-out list in your property binder. If trash pick-up occurs during your booking, you must put the trash cans out the evening before the pick-up day. Sorry, the City of Anchorage does not have recycling pick-up service at this time.

Cleaning
Cleaning fees serve as a basic move out cleaning with dusting, re-making beds and wiping surfaces. Long Term (over 30 days) guests are expected to maintain the home during their stay in order to avoid incurring additional cleaning charges. If cleanings are to take longer than 3 hours after move out, additional charges will apply at a rate of $45 per hour with a minimum charge of $45. Stays over thirty days require twice the original cleaning fee amount. Additional fees may apply for late check out if same day move-ins are delayed as a result of additional cleaning.

Basic cleaning fee does NOT include:
- Items not completed on the check-out list
- Cleaning of putting away
- Re-arranging furniture/putting it back to its original location
- Deep scrubbing of any surfaces or stain removal
- Carpet cleaning
- Daily/weekly bed making or touch up cleanings

I unexpectedly had to get my appendix taken out in Anchorage and needed last minute accommodation, Skye's house was the only thing available. It was terrible value, and I wouldn't recommend it to fellow travelers. Skye's home is in a residential neighborhood with lots of trashy neighbors, junk all over. I worried about parking my van outside. The home itself wasn't clean, though my reservation included a $125 cleaning fee before I arrived. For that kind of money I expect it to be *spotless* and looking in any of the drawers, the windowsills, the baseboards or the closets made it clear it wasn't a clean house. It was barely acceptable enough I didn't leave immediately. It smelled clean, but it was obvious that $125 cleaning fee was a ripoff plane and simple. My reservation ended up being $150/day, and I would have much rather spent that on a clean hotel where my socks wouldn't turn black walking across the floors and I could be sure the towels and linens were clean. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who can avoid it.

Response from Skye:
This is the first time anybody has ever complained about my pricing and I have had this unit for 8 years and typical summer rates are 205 per night plus tax, which is still below hotel (without kitchen) prices.... so you even got a discount. For two bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a heated garage, stainless steel appliances, fireplace, and a 2 person cleaning crew that spends 3 hours on site every cleaning to make sure the home is ready for the next guests, $150 per night is a STEAL. A studio hotel in anchorage is over 200 per night. If anybody is looking to spend less than that, I suggest you please enjoy your over priced, undersized hotel room without a kitchen or direct parking spot. you had no specific complaints when I asked what was dirty so that I could correct it, so I would say that this review was uncalled for and not helpful at all.

The home was clean, and easily accessible. It was stocked with towels and extra bedding if needed. There were so several places to park and it was nice having a spot to park in the garage. The location was within minutes to stores and dining. The beds were super comfortable and although we didn't use the kitchen, it was stocked with everything we needed to cook.

The house was nice and comfortable. The only thing was it was very close to neighbors, and if the blinds were opened it felt like neighbors could look right in.
