Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Clean, comfortable beds. House has beautiful view and unfortunately could not sit outside on the outdoor setting due to bugs. Not the owners fault but Pack bug spray, mosquitoes were Bad. Good location to base oneself for touring the area.

Close enough to town, but far enough to feel away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. We were amazed at how short the trip was from the airport and how quiet and tranquil it was when we arrived. Shannon was there to greet us, even providing a bottle of wine for our anniversary. The unit was well equipped with everything needed and the beds were actually quite comfortable. The wall of windows overlooking the city and mountain bring in a lot of sunshine and an awesome view even if it's raining :) Very roomy for 2 couples or small family. If we come back to the area, this will be the first place we look to stay. Thanks for everything!

Awesome Place! Feels New and Clean.

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend in Fairbanks during the ice carving competition and this place was perfect! We are a couple with a 7 month old and the place had plenty of amenities and the space. Love the fact this place sits outside of the city area and has an amazing view of Fairbanks. Only 13 min drive from airport. Also a nice place to park our big SUV away from the house to not bother the owners was a plus. We will stay again when we visit Fairbanks.

Amazing Property with Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic and offered stunning views from above Fairbanks onto the city below. In addition, it wasn't drowned by city light so, if the conditions were right, it would have been perfect for viewing the Northern Lights. Unfortunately for us, it was a little too cloudy on our visit. But we were treated to a gorgeous sunrise in the morning.

The property is modern with all the amenities you would need in the kitchen (spices, oil, cooking supplies, etc. for anyone inclined to cook their own meals), bathroom (towels, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, etc.), a TV with tons of channels, comfortable beds, and fast Internet. It is also close to downtown Fairbanks and a few great restaurants and bars.

Shannon was also very friendly and helpful and responded to all of our questions, even suggesting places for us to eat on Thanksgiving. Thanks for the great stay, hope to see you again!

Peaceful, immaculate, in the country

  • 5 of 5

Private, with great valley views. Very comfortable for 1 or 2 couples/children. Exceptionally clean. Smells/looks new! Close to airport. Shannon stayed in touch during reservation process. If ever back in Fairbanks would rent in a heartbeat. Wonderful AK community. Recommending to family.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a 7-day stay at this property and highly recommend it to anyone visiting the Fairbanks area. The apartment is modern and very well maintained. We all enjoyed the impressive view from the windows and very nice patio area in front. Both bedrooms are nicely done with comfortable beds. Shannon was very helpful although the instructions are so well done we only needed to check in once before the trip and then follow the instructions. Wifi was adequate for web surfing and email. The location is very convenient to the airport and downtown. The house is on a non-paved street but it is well maintained. This apartment was a much better option for our family compared to hotels.
