Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Alaska - Vista Valley Guest House

4BR/3BA - Sleeps 4-10

The Vista Valley Guest house is a well-built home situated on an elite, wooded 6 acres overlooking a valley. The home is located right up the road from historic Ester, the Malemute Saloon, and the popular Ester Community Park with a summer playground, soccer field, and winter ice skating. It's just 10 minutes from the University of Alaska and 20 minutes to downtown Fairbanks and all the Golden Heart City has to offer.

The kitchen, with cherrywood cabinets, is amply equipped with all the tools you need to cook for a group. The BBQ on the deck is a great way to enjoy the Alaska summer and the wonderful nature views. Wake up to the aroma of incredible coffee with the Nespresso fully-automatic espresso machine. For coffee purists, we also provide a burr grinder and a traditional coffee machine.

Catch up on laundry while in Fairbanks. Vista Valley Guest House has a front-loading washer and dryer available for guests and the detergent is provided.

There are four bedrooms, a total of 2 queen beds, 2 full bed, a twin trundle, and an extra rollaway cot, so there will be plenty of room for parents, kids, grandparents, or a group of friends traveling together. We provide luxury linens and towels for each of the beds and the three full bathrooms.

The sitting room with soapstone wood stove invites you to curl up with a good book, and the living room has a flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and surround sound, with a small selection of DVD's provided. Fast wireless internet will keep you connected to family or friends while in Alaska. There is also some toys for young children available.

Relax and come enjoy the private elite getaway and beautiful view available at Vista Valley View Guest House!

Lodging Rates: $250/ night up to four people, $25 each additional person per night, plus 8% tax. Max 10 people. Cancellation policy: Cancellations or changes made within 30 days of arrival will be charged the full amount. Minimum two night stay.

About The Owner

Eve grew up right here on the block, and in fact, much of her family still lives in the Vista Way neighborhood, with her mom still located just a few acres away! She loves reading, music, camping, riding snow mobiles and tries to make time for travel, going to live theatre, and Sunday drives.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Alaska

My brother designed and built this house. I feel like I have a dream kitchen, and take a lot of pride in my brother's tile work throughout the house. We hope you can come and enjoy the space, the comfort, and the privacy available at Vista Valley Guest House, just a gorgeous 15 minute drive from Fairbanks.

The only place to stay in Fairbanks

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in July and it was great. Location is a little out of the city so you have no neighbors in view and have that out in the woods feel, however you are in the middle of Fairbanks in 10 minutes or less. Close to airport, restaurants, tours, activities. Fantastic deck and view. Lots of space in house and the internet is great and is all you need for service. Highly recommended, far far far superior to staying at a resort or hotel in the area.

A Large Home Well Equipped

  • 4 of 5

A well equipped home within close proximity to Fairbanks; i.e. 15 minutes. It is a large home with four bedrooms but keeping this in mind, there is only a small dining table which will seat four. Also the seating available in the living room is for four persons. The tall grass outside makes it impossible to sit outside; lots of mosquitoes. The washing machine was broken.

Exceptional home. Quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Beautiful house. Very convenient to Fairbanks. Very clean and comfortable and up to date. Very nice linens, beds, furniture. Very well stocked kitchen with expresso machine and other small appliances. Great mountain view. Did wish the check-out time was 11:00 AM like the big majority of the rental properties. Would highly recommend this property.

Peaceful and Accommodating

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this beautiful home in June 2016. We were in the Fairbanks area for a wedding. The hosts were very gracious in accommodating our wedding schedule and gave us early access to the home. The home had everything we could have wanted. Our family enjoyed sitting around the table playing games, from the game closet, in the evening. The home is situated above a tranquil vista of trees and valleys that was lovely to gaze out on in the early morning. We would definitely recommend this home to friends and family!

Exceptional experience! I would highly recommend this to anyone.

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at several VRBO properties over the past couple of years, at various locations. I've never had a complaint about any of them, but this property was exceptional. Eve and Erin were both very easy to communicate with and were very professional with a good measure of being laid back.

The thing that really set this apart for our family were the little details. The kitchen was well supplied. There was detergent for laundry. There is a grill, with a well supplied pantry with spices and such. Also, we have a 1 and a 2 year old, so the toys and books available were an incredible help during our stay!

The view is incredible. The pictures here don't do it complete justice in my opinion. The house is a very short, easy drive into Fairbanks, making location perfect in my opinion.

I hope to have the opportunity to stay here again in the future! I highly recommend it!

Very Nice

  • 5 of 5

Our group came up to view the aurora borealis. Accommodations were comfortable roomy and clean. The driveway had a great vantage point for the viewing of some very good aurora activity even seeing it from the living room couch. The location was far enough from the city lights but not to far to get to town easily.
