Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chalet in Mid-Hillside - Above it All Chalet

850 Square Foot, 1 Bedroom Suite W. Private Entry-In House Situated On 2 Acres

This modern 1 bedroom 850 square foot suite is exceptional! Up to 4 people can relax in this newly updated space, which features vaulted ceilings, a double-sided gas fireplace, in floor heat, and granite surfaces throughout.

With a fully appointed kitchen you can relax in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine while preparing dinner, or enjoy a full breakfast and a cup of coffee in the morning without having to leave. There is also an outdoor BBQ grill and seating area.

The sofa features a queen size fold out bed that works great for 1 adult or two smaller children.

Fully furnished and very spacious, the bedroom includes king size bed, a 58' TV, and lots of large windows that allow for ample beautiful natural light. The bedroom ceilings are vaulted and give the room a very comfortable feel.

A walk in closet with a dresser, hangars, and full size washer and dryer make for easy management of all your clothing. There is an extra-large bathroom with double granite top vanities, a jetted tub, separate shower, and separate private toilet closet.

Situated on 2 acres, there is lots of outdoor space that you are welcome to use as well. In the summer months we have an outdoor fire pit for you, and fire wood should you decide to toast up a marshmallow or sit and watch the flames.

You will also find a private entrance, ample parking, and your own outdoor deck space. The private entrance also makes it easier for late or even very late check-ins.

This location is just minutes from many hiking trails that land you in some of the most picturesque locations you can imagine. It is also just minutes from great food, and shopping areas.

Above It All Chalet is simply that...Above it all in many ways. Located in one of Anchorage's premiere locations, it offers the best of all worlds. We have found it to be an excellent location to act as our home, and our home base for our own Alaskan adventures.

We are happy to accommodate late check-ins and sometimes early ones. And we can often accommodate a late check-out. Just let us know!!

About Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator

We are a typical family that moved to Alaska in 2005 seeking better life. We did exactly that. Alaska has provided us with countless opportunities to experience things we would never be able to in other states. We have been blessed to see incredible things all over the state. From wildlife viewing, to glacier hikes, we quickly grew to love this state. Our children and us have all fourished here and we would love to share our experiences. As both foodies, and lovers of the outdoors, Alsaka was the perfect fit for us. We hope you will find your nitch here as well!!

Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Michael Podolak-Owner/Operator chose Anchorage

It is all about location, accomodations, and the setting. While this property is private and situated perfectly for those that love the outdoors, we also feel it can accomodate those that simply like to relax as well. From here you can be to a beautiful glacier cruise, off shore fishing adventure, sea kayaking, and many other adventures within an hour. As we are located in South Anchorage, you can buzz downtown in 20 min, or you can get to beautiful girdwood for skiing, berry picking, or hiking in 30 minutes.

What makes this chalet unique

We feel it is unusual to find a place located in this area of South Anchorage Lower Hillside. With a more relaxed zoning we are able to have 2 acres and allow our guests to have their own fire pit area, and enjoy more outdoor space than most places in Anchorage. It is likely you will see moose on the property or maybe, even a black bear. From here you can easily get to the Kenai Peninsula for a fantastic adventure. Or, you can head north for stunning views of Mt. McKinley.

Highly recommend - This property is a great getaway with all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed our week at the lovely Above It All Chalet - Loved the country feel, yet close to all the conveniences of town! Everything was clean, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The Pictures are spot on! The kitchen was well appointed with everything we needed to cook or grill our meals. The bedroom was large and comfortable so we could lounge and take advantage of the double sided gas fireplace during the early October cool mornings and evenings. The shower is huge! We appreciated the jetted tub after our many hikes in the National Parks. The owner was very helpful in suggesting a few different things to do and there is a small library of literature that helps answer any questions about the area that you may have.

Couldn't have been nicer!

  • 5 of 5

The property was so nice. It was well equipped with everything needed to feel at home. The location was great for going south on Turnagainarm, Seward Highway, Anchorage or north. Michael was very friendly and helpful. Fresh flowers and snacks were an added bonus! I would highly recommend.

Perfect apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michael for letting us stay at your apartment. The apartment was great. We loved the large bath with the giant shower, as well as the very large bedroom and king size bed. The living area and kitchen we nicely stocked with coffee and snacks for our arrival. All in all the apartment was perfect.

The location is excellent. It's only twenty minute from the airport and the downtown museums. There are some great restaurants just one short exit up the highway. Everyday we drove to new sights. The apartment is only a few minutes from the major highway , Alaska 1.

This is the place you never thought you'd find ! Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful chalet for 11 days. It is the most comfortable, clean and most inviting place we've ever stayed in. It is in a quiet location, yet not too far from all the restaurants, grocery stores and malls. When we first arrived, the Podolak family had a variety of snacks ready for us as we hadn't stop to eat being anxious to see where we would be staying . The chalet has a well stocked kitchen, especially with spices . Every room is beautifully decorated and so inviting. We enjoyed the fine furnishing , especially the bed which was unbelievably comfortable after a fun day of seeing Alaska. The bathroom is very spacious with a most enjoyable spa tub and very large shower. The fireplaces are beautiful . It was especially helpful to have a washer and dryer with soap and supplies. The best part of our stay was meeting the Podolak family. They give you privacy to enjoy your visit but were so helpful when we visited with them about great restaurants in the area and directions to get to our destinations for the day. Michael took a lot of time giving us names of great places to eat and things to do and see. He even shared some salmon with us and showed us his special way of preparing it on the grill. It was Yummy!!! It is also beautifully landscaped for those relaxing evenings on the deck . What a view! If you're looking for that special place, look no further, this is it. From the first day to the last it was our home away from home!

This attached 1 bedroom,1 bath is exactly how it looks in the photos with one exception, it is much BIGGER in the bed and bathroom. And the surprise is it has a full walk in laundry room and closet that keeps all your belongings out of the main living areas!! It is a quaint, cozy , well stocked unit. Perfect for two!! We are already planning to stay there again when we return next year!!!! Thank you Michael

A great home base!

  • 5 of 5

What a great week we had at Above It All! It was very clean and comfortable. The bed was great, and it was a bonus to have a washer/dryer to use. The kitchen facilities were very clean and usable, we have no complaints. We spent the week exploring the great state of Alaska, and it was so nice to have a place to call "home" at the end of a tiring, fun day. The weather was not very cooperative while we there, but in spite of that, we had an amazing time exploring and we did have two days when the clouds moved out so we could get some great photos of the mountains. We even saw 3 moose, one right in the backyard! We would recommend this place to anyone.

Anchorage is the gateway to any outdoor Alaskan adventure you can imagine. Glacier viewing, hiking, skiing (both downhill and cross country), mountain biking, fishing (ocean and freshwater), kayaking, camping, and much, much more are all easily accessible from Above it All Chalet.

Not only the gateway to all Alaska's outdoor splendor, Anchorage is also the urban cultural hub of the state. You can spend your day hiking or fishing, and catch a Broadway production and enjoy fine dining in the evening!

Above it All Chalet is situated on a hillside approximately 20 minutes from downtown Anchorage. On 2 acres, our location lets you feel like you are leaving it all behind with all the conveniences of groceries, gas, and great restaurants only 5 minutes away!
