Tara and Jake made us feel welcome but were unobtrusive so the accommodation felt private. The studio was just as it was described, compact, very clean, with all the necessaries in the kitchen and we did not find it too noisy at all. The laundry room was a bonus especially to dry out clothes in the first rainy week. The sunny garden was the another bonus for the very hot second week! It was ideally situated to explore Alaska with links to different towns and there were enough stores locally for essentials. It was particularly useful to us as it was only a five minute walk to our sons, so we hope to stay again.

I've stayed at Tara's apartments several times for work trips now, and I hope she's always available when I come up in the future! Her apartments are clean, well-stocked and centrally located. There's off-street parking, cable, wifi, and everything you could possibly need for your trip. The decor is cute and comfortable, and she's always responsive and helpful (but not otherwise around, so the place feels like home away from home). Thanks Tara!

Tara and her husband were wonderful hosts and made time to accommodate us even while on the verge of delivering her baby! We really enjoyed our stay, it was cozy, clean and quiet. We would definitely return to this cute studio on our next visit to Anchorage.

The studio was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. During my extended stay (about 3 months) I was able to easily walk to the grocery store and pharmacy, restaurants, bars, and to the bus stop. My commute to downtown was easy and quick. Tara and Jake were lovely and were always available if I had questions about day trips or things to do in the neighborhood. This was the perfect apartment for me!

Tara's studio apartment underneath her shop is a nice and relaxing space in a popular location in Anchorage. You can't beat the location if you are actively seeking to go to shops and restaurants, but it may not be the right place for you if you are seeking complete quiet and solitude. It was perfect for me and I would love to stay there again. Communication with Tara is easy and everything is as described. Definitely a recommended location and listing in Anchorage.

Wish I could give 6 stars for value. The apartment was great. Close to bars and restaurants, clean, well furnished with all the cooking stuff you need. Even cable tv and Netflix and whatnot. I was worried about noise from the bar next door, but didn't even notice, even on the weekend.
