"This vacation rental was not what we expected at all. The studio is located in a home on the side of a hill with great views out to the bay, and the inside of the studio is nicely decorated with lots of space and very basic amenities. However, the owner is a chatterbox and was a bit intrusive upon check-in; the atmosphere was more like a bed and breakfast rather than a vactation rental. The property is not well-tended and has shipping containers, car parts, kids toys and playhouses littering the area. Additionally, while the ad does say that the owner lives onsite, it fails to mention that the rental studio is directly connected to the owner's unit with a door that only locks from the OTHER side. There is no way to ensure that the owner cannot enter your studio while you're sleeping, out doing activities, etc. This was extremely uncomfortable. Moreover, the owner's daughter and her young children live in the unit directly above the rental, and these children are awake with the sun; and in the summer in Alaska, that means 4:30am. I could not sleep at all with the children running around upstairs and someone walking around the property with possibly a wheelbarrow at 6:30am. You can hear the family yelling at the children through the walls and ceiling. Overall, we felt like we were just intruding on someone else's life and had to tiptoe around. We ended up leaving and booking a hotel in the city for the rest of our stay after the first night. Very disappointing."
