Verena's home was absolutely lovely, spacious, well appointed, lovely clean bathroom & spacious bed

  • 5 of 5

Verena greeted us with smiles and conversation, her house presented as a very attractive destination. We had a lovely suite that was spacious with a large bedroom, spacious kitchenette and a very clean bathroom.

Laundry facilities were available that helped catch up on soiled clothes after a 10 day coach tour.

We certainly recommend Verena's accommodation for those wanting a quiet, clean place to stay in Anchorage and she's close to the airport.

10 out of 10 for us.

Everything was neat and clean. Nice to have a kitchenette too. Especially a coffee pot. Travelled with my granddaughter and it worked out great. Close to every place we needed to be during the weekend we were there for a wedding.

Like Coming Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed our first 2 nights in Anchorage and we requested our last night there as well after traveling north for the week.

This property was in an excellent location - close to the airport and everything else we found to do in anchorage.

The apartment was clean and inviting with all of the amenities! we would definitely recommend this to others and would stay again if we are ever in the area.

About Verena Kaeppele

Verena and Rudi enjoy the interaction with people from near and far. Verena being an avid traveler herself loves to talk about her and the guests travel. Verena grew up in a small town in Switzerland and therefore enjoys gardening, flowers and a house full of plants.

Verena Kaeppele purchased this studio in 2002

Why Verena Kaeppele chose Sand Lake

We always had personal company from the USA and from Europe mainly. When we built our home, we decided to open our home to the tourists, as there always seems to be a shortage of reasonable accommodations in Anchorage during the summer months.

What makes this studio unique

We are conveniently located approx. 5 miles from the Airport, the perfect location for late arrivals by air. We are also only minutes away from highway access south and north, as well as convenient to parks, businesses, shopping, trails, universities and hospitals. Our Suites are the ideal arrangement for the discriminating traveler or for the need to travel to Anchorage for medical reasons, temporary work, or whatever the need to travel to Anchorage might be.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If we'd known about you sooner, we sould have stayed longer. Will definately come to your lovely accomodation next time. Thank you, Verena, for making us feel so welcome.
