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.

The space

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.

Guest access

Guests have access to the downstairs bedrooms, bathroom, common room, laundry room, parking in the driveway, and the front deck.

There is a propane firepit on the front deck. Please ask for instructions if you are interested in using it.

I also have three adult bikes (they are old)and two helmets for use if requested. Use at your own risk.

Interaction with guests

As much as they like.

Other things to note

I love doing this. I've met the most awesome people from all over the world. I try to go above and beyond so that each guests trip to Alaska is the best that it can be.

Please take into account that there are two large dogs on site and that there is no real cooking area for guests.

We enjoyed our stay in Shellys house. The bed was very comfortable and a very nice shower room was much appreciated. We were grateful also to be offered a lift downtown on our last morning and enjoyed the chat on the way to the Ulu factory.

Really nice staying in Shelly's home. She is a lovely lady and I enjoyed her company, although we only spent a short time together. Her house and the accommodation is as described by other guests and you are easily made to feel at home. The bed is super and the shower was perfect. The bus system (close by) is poor (lack of buses) but if you time it right you can be downtown in 35 minutes. However a car is really the best option, as there is very little to do close by. I would by more than happy to return.

Shelly's house is pretty cute. The space for Airbnb guests is super comfortable and organized. The only negative thing is that there was a strong smell of pee the last day where the dogs stay. The dogs are super friendly and full of love.

Response from Shelly:
Adriana. I'm sorry about the pee smell. When I got home I couldn't find a mess, or smell anything so I'm not sure where it was coming from. There have been previous comments regarding occasional pet smells so I've been focusing on mopping the hardwood floors, and shampooing the carpets. I apologize for that detracting from your visit here. I know the dogs loved all the attention that you gave them.

Shelly's place was spacious and clean and in a quite neighborhood. We have one floor to ourselves. She gave us a lot good recommendations. The dogs are separated from us. They barked when we first arrived but got very quite the second day. There is a little smells of the dogs but we got used to it very quick. Overall, it was a great experience.

Response from Shelly:
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and got comfortable with the dogs. I apologize for the dog smell. It is something I have been working on eliminating with carpet shampooing and steam cleaning the laminate. I hope the rest of your trip went well.
