Did not meet our expectations

  • 1 of 5

We were glad we reserved this house for only two nights. After our arrival we discovered a very poor selection of TV stations due mainly that it was only available through internet ROCU and only one national network was available. The next morning there was no internet connection at all for the duration of our stay. The water is extremely bad and could not even be used for tooth brushing as it tasted terrible. The list of rules were far more restrictive than any other vrbo we have stayed in, and the cleaning costs were exorbitant(we left the place cleaner than when we arrived.) It was obvious to me that the owners are only interested in maximizing profits on a shodily constructed house. We definitely would never stay at this house again.

We had a great visit in Wasilla, My sons Wedding was Beautiful. And we would defiantly stay in your home again.

Beautiful place all the comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

We went out exploring everyday but came back and relaxed, leisurely dinners and enjoying sitting on the back deck and it was definitely a week of lots of laughs! We hope to come back again.

Good for the price. Warm and comportable

  • 4 of 5

The house was good for the price. There were a few problems with the house.

The microwave would not work 95% of the time.

The hot water is way too hot. The temperature was measured at 165-168 degrees F. A young child could be scalded by the hot water easily especially if the water is also turned on elsewhere in the home.

The shower faucets can not be turned to control the volume of water exiting the shower head.

This makes it difficult getting into the shower and not getting water all over the place while trying to adjust the water temperature.

The front door could only be opened part way due to the floor interference with opening the door.

We could not find a broom to sweep up the pine needles on the porch and stairs so they would not be carried into the house.

The garbage can outside was completely full when we arrived at he home.

overall good experience

  • 3 of 5

Nice, clean log home with plenty of room to sleep our group of 10. Although the immediate neighbors next door were very friendly,

the rest of the neighborhood, not so much. Many unleashed dogs and one lady questioning us on who we were and advising us to stay close to the property. (in a threatening manner almost) So unfortunately we did not feel comfortable going on walks in the area. This was not too big of an issue, because we were gone much of the time exploring beautiful Alaska! But we do feel this is important for future occupants to be aware of.

If you like hiking, we strongly recommend hiking Flat Top Mountain in Anchorage and if going to Seward hiking up Exit Glacier. We loved our glacier cruise out of Whittier ...used the company Philips Tours. Absolutely beautiful and amazing to see all the glaciers, even saw some calving. Alaska does not disappoint!

Wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at Sparky's in Wasilla very much. Having a large living room/kitchen area was super important to us and the kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed using the gas barbeque grill, and there were plenty of beds and bathrooms. Most important to us was that the cabin was super clean:) Communication with owners was good and we would love to stay there again if we go to Wasilla in the future!
