We booked this at almost the last minute (1-2 days out) for an early flight out of Anchorage the next day, and it was perfect! Conveniently located near the airport, welcoming reception (we appreciated the handwritten note and box of chocolates!), great for our party of five, nicely furnished, and very comfortable.
The host was amazingly responsive. we had a minor bathtub issue (which turned out to be user error) and they were right up to fix it despite the late time. and other than that they stayed out of our way and made sure we felt like it was our private apartment, with a separate entrance. it was perfect for our needs.
Samuel was a great host. We never saw them but the place was just as promised. IF you are a big walker, it's possible to walk downtown from this location. It's a bit of a hike but doable. Also, can walk (again a bit of a hike) to a great little diner for breakfast, The City Diner. Also in the 'hood is the Rustic Goat which is another restaurant well within walking distance. And, if you GEO-CACHE, there are lots of caches in the neighborhood!
Thanks Samuel for providing this rental. The location of a quiet neighborhood and its size is great for small group's stay. It would be nicer if it can be a bit bigger in size. Appreciate the welcome gift of the caramel chocolate. We like the kitchen so much that we have cooked at night but forgot our cooking oil, sauces and other condiments next morning.
Had an awesome time at Samuels little blue house. Everything was great. Was able to accommodate us even though we were a little over on how many would be staying. Great location and close to supermarket and downtown. The apartment was clean. Had pots and pans to cook so that was plus. Samuel, thank you again for your hospitality. Hope to one day make it back again. Thank you for everything!!
