The rental space is the downstairs of my home through a shared entrance. There are two bedrooms that accommodate 4 guests. One bedroom has a queen sized bed and one bedroom has two twin sized beds. There is one large bathroom. There is a common room with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, electric tea kettle, paper plates, plastic utensils and seating. Washer and dryer available for use.
Downstairs of large single family home in East Anchorage which includes two bedrooms (one queen and two singles) I am a medical professional who has lived in Anchorage since 1969.
Part of the common room downstairs is gated off for my two large and friendly dogs to stay during the day when I am at work or gone. The upstairs is where I live and is my personal space. It is where the dogs are when I am at home. In the mornings I let the dogs out through the downstairs door off their gated space due to health issues of the dogs, and their ability to handle stairs. I sometimes have to access the laundry room as well during the day.
Children are welcome, but if they are afraid of dogs this might not be your best choice.
Residence is within walking distance of bus stops (Peoplemover), Kaladi Brothers Espresso, and Subway.
Extensive network of biking/running trails within 100 yards.
Sunny south facing deck with seating and a firepit to enjoy the long daylight hours.
Both moose and bears have been seen in the neighborhood.
There is no longer a hot tub available, but there is now a firepit in it's place.
