"Big Table Stuga." Private-entry, garden-level studio, below the living area of our home. On a cul-de-sac in West Anchorage. Fridge, microwave and light breakfast. We treasure young children, gardens, bees, a 3 legged dog, stories and coffee.
Comfortable, private-entry, garden-level studio apartment below the living area of our home. (You will hear sounds of movement, family with children from above. House is quieter between 8pm - 8am). It is tucked in a neighborhood with easy access to the city. In the studio space there is a queen size (brand name American Leather) sofa bed, a twin size pull-out ottoman, also available is an air mattress and pack and play (crib). Small refrigerator, microwave and hot water pot; coffee, tea, oatmeal with toppings, fruit and sweet bread in the studio. Read by the gas stove, study, work, have coffee, campfires (s'mores), BBQ, borrow our bikes, enjoy the yard, slides and buoy swing for kids. Great to use as home base for those having adventures, meetings, conferences, shopping and appointments in and around the city. Also the perfect place if you're just needing to stop over before or after landing at the airport.
You have private use of the studio. There is a separate entrance for guests to come and go. There is a 4.4 cu ft refrigerator, microwave and hot water pot in the studio for your use. Light breakfast provided in studio. Washer & dryer, BBQ, bikes, campfire with s'mores may be available upon request.
Interazione con gli ospiti
Most of the time we are close to home and will be available for assistance and travel tips if desired. If we are away we will make plans for a substitute host to be available. We are up for conversation and sharing of stories as much as you are interested, and as time allows.
Altre cose da evidenziare
We are a professional family with 15 years of living experience in Anchorage. We have 3 young children , a dog (who has never set foot in the studio) and we are beekeepers. Bees are kept in a "bee yard" behind the house. You will hear sounds of an active family as the studio is on the lower level of our home. We respect your privacy and wishes for a wonderful stay. We enjoy hosting and often have friends from out-of-town who make the studio their home-way-from-home.
The Yes-es: Please enjoy your time, sit by the garden, enjoy a fire (with prior permission-due to possible fire bans by the city), eat inside or outside, BBQ, watch a movie, don a bee suit to participate in a hive inspection, borrow a bike...and park along the outside of the cul-de-sac.
The No-s: Please no smoking, no pets, no partying (but do enjoy a glass). No additional overnight guests.
(The studio space can fit 4 people. It will be crowded if that is 4 adults, but manageable. The only exception we will make to the rule of 4 guests is to allow one additional child. So there can only be a 5th person if it's a young child. Thank you.
We ask that you kindly clean-up after yourself; because we like to keep it clean for all of our guests!
Quiet Time: 10:00pm - 8:00am
We are an active family with children, a dog, bees, and someday maybe chickens?!
