Overview

About the property

Beautiful Inside, Close To Coastal Trail, Shopping Mall And 2 Miles To Downtown

The house is all new inside and absolutely gorgeous. When I say everything is new, that includes the walls, triple pane windows, doors, toilets, cabinets, trim, flooring and the

furniture. This also includes all the linens, dishes, and everything. The house is in a great neighborhood and is very quiet. The house has huge windows and you will feel close to nature when you see the 30' pine tree out front or see the cute squirrel running across the fence line in the back. Pick some fresh apples from the trees in late August once they are ripe. Bake a fresh pie or apple crumble. Raspberry bushes also along the back fence.

The house is a bi-level house with 9 stairs going to the front door. The upstairs is 1400 sqft. The downstairs is finished. It has 2 more bedrooms and another full bathroom. There are 15 steps going downstairs. The living area is bigger than the upstairs kitchen/living room area. It has a big 55" TV three full size couches. There is a dining room table that seats 6 and in the far corner there is a queen bed to eliminate the use of the blowup mattress. But if it is needed there is still plenty of room.

The coastal trail is close by for a morning jog or afternoon walk. Shopping is only .25 miles away and downtown is only 2 miles away. It is a straight shot on the Seward Hwy which is right there. Moose's Tooth pizza is Anchorage's best pizza and is only 1 mile away. Amazing pizza and home brewed beer.

Downtown has many things to offer. Shopping, sightseeing, bike rentals, coastal trail and even fishing. Many restaurants and bars to eat delicious food. Renting bikes from downtown is great way to check out the coastal trail. You will sometimes see moose as well.

The end of May and into June is a great time to hit ship creek, right down town and reel up a king salmon. Throw on some chest waders or boots and grab a fishing pole. Don't forget to get a fishing license and be very careful of the tide. The mud and the tide can be dangerous so talk to the locals before venturing out into the stream.

Chilkoot Charlie's is the infamous bar for Anchorage. It is about 1.5 from the house and it usually has a band on one side and a dj on the other. One bar is called the birdhouse which has a slanted bar with many stories regarding the original Birdhouse and full of pranks.

Total of 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. Upstairs, room 1 has a queen bed and a twin bed, room 2 has a king bed, and room 3 has a king bed. 2 bathrooms upstairs. Downstairs, room 4 has a king bed and room 5 has 2 queen beds. 1 queen bed in open area downstairs and a queen size blowup mattresses if needed. 1 bathroom downstairs.

*** SAVE MONEY WITH COUPONS****

I have also purchased several coupon books that offers many discounts on many tourist attractions and over 300 restaurants. Most of them are buy one get one free. So if you decide to take a trip on the Alaska Railroad to Seward and back and a ticket is $170 they will give you one ticket free. The major coupons I will give out one, for every three nights books. The book will be left at the house for your use for any of the restaurant ones or other activities. It could definitely save you a couple hundreds of dollars.

About Jan Durrington

I was in the hotel industry for about 10 years and my dream was to own a B&B when I was younger. I always loved helping the guests plan day trips and when they came back glowing and with awesome pictures, a great adventure, or of wildlife and the natural beauty of Alaska always made me smile.

Jan Durrington purchased this house in 2014

Why Jan Durrington chose Anchorage

This property was ready for some TLC. We spent a couple of years and blood, sweat and tears to make this house beautiful. This was an experience of a life time to remodel and make things so nice for our guests.

What makes this house unique

Great location and very easy to get to where ever you need to go. It is a quiet neighborhood and a couple blocks from Anchorage's coastal trail. This trail is great for walking, jogging, rollerblading, skate skiing, and biking. Be sure to pack some bug spray because the mosquitoes can get bad in some areas.

I have also purchased several coupon books that offers many discounts on many tourist attractions and over 300 restaurants. Most of them are buy one get one free. So if you decide to take a trip on the Alaska Railroad to Seward and back and a ticket is $170 they will give you one ticket free. The major coupons I will give out one, for every three nights books.

We had a wonderful 8 days. 12 people lived comfortably in Jane's home and she was an accommodating and personable hostess. Neither she nor the home could have been better.

First of all the renter Jan is great. Perfect communication and friendly. The house was clean and spacious. We could walk to Fed Meyer and a great Pizza place among many other spots. There was a nice backyard with a bbq. no issues with neighbors. The house was a very nice start to our vacation.

Thanks,

Beautiful modern home! So well maintained! 10 min to down town 10 min to airport!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to anchorage, we could not have have asked for a better home this house totally maximized our anchorage experience. This was a 6bedroom 1 was still being renovated home has been beautifully remodeled. 2 living rooms, 3 bathrooms, great stocked kitchen with large table. Back yard is perfect lots of privacy and big enough for the kids to run around and pick apples and berries that were growing. All rooms had queens or king beds showers were stock with soaps/shampoos towels. Jan was kind enough to purchase a UFC fight for us on a late notice. Owners were very accommodating and respectful! I 100% recommend this big beautiful home to anyone visiting Anchorage! Thank you so much for extending your home to us!

What a huge home for a large family or two! Lots of space to stretch out. This home was so nice & the location was perfectly close to downtown Anchorage. Jan has kept it up so nicely. We had a one year old grandson along w/us & there were even toys for him to play with! Loved our stay!
