Alaska--the Most Picturesque Place on Planet Earth

Bedrooms 2
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 31 nights


About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Alaska has been one of the greatest experiences that we have had in the great out-of-doors adventure. We love to fish, hunt, camp, backpack, walk, boating, biking and many other amenities that Alaska offers that are within minutes of our property. We would love to accommodate you at Roosevelt Center, Inc.

Our property is fully equipped for our guest. The property resides on little over an acre of land which is unique for the Anchorage area. Laundry facilities are located on the property for your convenience.

From the South side (balcony side) of the property is a large greenbelt with a shallow creek 'Fish Creek' drainage that runs through it and a short lighted walking/bike path. On the North side of the property or front is a large yard with sitting areas, parking areas, and a municipal park directly in front of the property -- just across the street.

The apartment is large (approximately 1200 square feet) with lots of open space in the dining/living/kitchen areas. The bedrooms are nice and spacious.

The community is an older well developed neighborhood mostly consisting of apartment buildings and some single family homes. We take great pride in our property and our summer flower garden are absolutely gorgeous. Please inquire concerning availability. Our calendar is not always accurate due to cancellations and postings.

About Roosevelt Center Inc

We both grew up in the South with a love for the out-of-doors and a natural environment. Alaska exceeded our expectation of the real definition of 'A Natural Out-of-Doors Environment'. It is our paradise on earth and our home for a lifetime. We both are pretty crafty with our hands, we love to build, fix, and make things better in and out of doors. We love to fish, hunt, walk, ride 4-wheelers, plant gardens (and watch the fruits of our labor produce) backpack, motorcycling, bicycling, cook outs, most of all we love people. We are so similar but very different which makes for a pretty cool pair. We both have contributed close to 60 years between the two of us in support of our armed forces at home and abroad. We are pretty diverse in that we are world travelers and have lived around the United States and abroad. We have raised very successful children here in Alaska and we love the splendid beauty of nature that Alaska offers. Please let us share our experience of Alaska with you via home away from home accommodation.

Roosevelt Center Inc purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Roosevelt Center Inc chose Anchorage

The property is centrally located to almost everything to include downtown Anchorage, hospitals, clinics within minutes by bus, car, or taxi. Many amenities are within walking distance.

What makes this apartment unique

You can relax inside, on your balcony, in the yard or at the park which is almost in our front yard. You can cook inside or outside. You can fish at nearby lakes and streams and bring your catch home and put it on the barbecue grills available for your use. You can even serve your meals on the yard or at the park. We are very close to hospitals and clinics. It is a short walk to nearby restaurants, strip malls, movie theatre. Our apartment is just like living with the amenities of home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Tom and Mary,

Thank you both so much. We got your note. We felt that your place was perfect and provided for all our needs. We were happy to find Gwennies and Fiori to eat at --- and the bus stop nearby to go downtown. We were pleased with the apartment especially how clean it was and comfortable, including the beds. My husband loved the TV. We will think of you next time on our visit. We are off to seward to some outside adventures. Take care and we wish you all the best.

Thanks Again!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. We were very comfortable and would definitely choose to stay here for many years to come. The rooms were great size and it was furnished well for our needs. the pool table was a big hit with my husband and brother. My 1 year old son could wander around and out onto the balcony with no problems and we felt that he was safe. We were allowed to check in even tho our flight got in around 2 am and able to check out when our flight left at 12:20 am. Staff was amazing, very helpful and very nice. It was the best place we have ever stayed in and theres no way we would stay anywhere else on our future summer trips!

Happy with our stay(s) here!

  • 5 of 5

Our company has used this rental for our physician, who has worked a couple of temporary assignments in the area. He has expressed how much he enjoys the stay here, how comfortable his stay has been both times, and how great the owners are! Personally, I know they have been wonderful to work with! We know how important their housing is, in determining how much they like, or don't like, their assignment. It's not always easy when we are not there in person to see the place first hand, and happy when we find places like this, that we know we can trust!

Great place to stay at reasonable rates.

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this apartment was very comfortable and relaxing. The apartment was very nicely decorated, cozy and clean. Mary and Tom were very nice and extremely helpful. They were very prompt in providing us with all our needs. They were also very flexible with Check In and Checkout time as well.

For families with kids this is a great place to stay as there is a big backyard and a park where kids can play and a great alternative to Hotel. The location is great as well as its very close to the airport as well as the main city.

Thank you Mary and Tom for making our stay so comfortable!

We truly hope you will come again and again. Now you can request the right apartment for you.
