  • Great Property!!


    I can’t say enough good things about the property or Deb & John the owners. They are both awesome! The property is exactly as advertised on VRBO along with the accuracy of all the pictures. The property is relatively new and very well maintained. Close to town if needed along with grocery stores, shopping etc. but far enough away to enjoy the silence also. The perfect get away for coming to explore Alaska! I would definitely rent this home again for future stays.

  • Private and quiet


    This place is great! If you wanna get away from the city but still be close enough to get to town easily this is it. There's a restaurant and corner store half a mile up the road and a grocery store a little further up. It's on a road basically by itself, no traffic. Very quiet and private, definitely a plus over staying at a busy hotel.The house itself is amazing and cozy. Everything looks great, alot of attention went into details. Access to washer/dryer is a big plus. The hot tubs hot, and the garden is nice to look out to. And theres a fully stocked kitchen. Debbie was a great host and if I ever get the opportunity to come back up I'll definitely be looking here. Thanks for the great stay!

  • Amazing House!


    We had an amazing stay in this beautiful home. The owner was super accommodating, we traveled with our 1 year old and the owner had a pack and play and high chair waiting for us. Thanks again for an amazing stay.

  • Extremely satisfied with my stay!


    The house was very nice and exactly as presented in the photos. The location is very quiet and in a fairly private area. I definitely made the right decision booking here rather than at a hotel in the area.
