    I really enjoyed this stay. We had some difficulties cause we had no idea how weather and road condition is in Fairbanks during winter, but as soon as we got to the place, we got surprised by how clean and stylish it is. It felt like home. I definitely suggest it for anyone who is going to Fairbanks. It's a wonderful place.

    Very Nice place to stay!
    Convenient location in a country setting. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was provided. Jocelyn was very friendly and helpful. She even gave us clean towels and fresh linens after a couple of days. The apartment, kitchen, and bathroom was super clean.
    We had a wonderful time and will definitely try and stay at this place the next time we visit the Fairbanks area.
    All of the great reviews are well deserved.

    We usually stay at hotels while visiting family in Alaska. We were blessed to be able to extend our stay at Jocelyn's by 2 days while there this year. Appreciated the flyers on local attractions, internet (kept my phone working), scissors, stapler and paperclips! Jocelyn asked if she could bring fresh linens down about the time we extended our stay....we said sure, but not necessary.....well....we were speechless after walking in and had to check each room out!! New pillows, sheets, comforters on both beds, towels and bathroom restocked!! Appreciated the surprise!!

    Spotlessly clean, quiet, yet centrally located.

    Everything was so clean. The fridge, oven, microwave and whole kitchen was squeaky clean. The whole place was so nice. Great attention to detail in every aspect.

    The beds were so comfortable. With the ability to have everything while being tucked in the woods, yet close to downtown and shopping was amazing.

    Dome Haven is the best place in the Fairbanks area. Worth coming back to stay again.

    We stayed at Dome Haven for an extended amount of time because we were in the area on a work assignment. We enjoy our stay at the apartment that is nestled in a grove of beautiful trees . The grove of trees provided us a great opportunity to watch the seasons change in Fairbanks. Beautiful in all seasons. The neighborhood is quiet and safe. The apartment is clean and served our needs well. The apartment provided a cozy place to spend our time. Jocelyn was a great hostess and was very willing to share her knowledge of Fairbanks. If we are ever in the area we would certainly stay here again.

    Perfection! Exceptional property at a bargain price!

    We had a great experience over the 4 nights we stayed here. Our party was one adult and two teens. The pull-out couch was actually comfortable and the cot offered was memory foam and very comfortable as well. Full kitchen with a complete array of cookware. It was quiet, comfortable, and close to everywhere we needed to go. The owner checked in with us a few times by text to make sure we had everything we needed. Given this property is part of her home, it was the right touch so we didn?t feel smothered. Everything was great. We will definitely be back if ever we?re back in town. Thank you!

    This is a private, quiet lower ground floor apartment in a beautiful setting. The hostess fitted us in at short notice, was very welcoming and had even made a birthday cake for my wife. With a few small improvements such as a larger bed this could be an excellent holiday venue. The spare sofa bed however, was very comfortable and ready to use.

    Manager's Response:
    Carl, we're glad you enjoyed your stay overall at this Fairbanks Apt. and appreciated the thoughtful touches from the owner. The bed located in the bedroom of the suite is a queen-size bed, and the sofa sleeper is a smaller full-size bed as we note in the listing description, but we apologize if this caught you off guard. We value your great suggestion of the additional kitchen knives and tea kettle. The homeowner informed us that they intend to improve the suite with those additions. Thank you again for taking the time to leave this review! Best, the Evolve Team

    The apartment has everything you need to enjoy your stay in Fairbanks. Jocelyn is the Hostess with the Mostest. There is a book with local attractions and maps. The location is absolutely perfect...about 15 minutes to the airport and 5 minutes from every type of store you need. The property is set back from the main drag, so is very quiet. You have privacy without having to be out in the middle of nowhere. We highly recommend staying here and hope that we will be able to come back soon!

    Some Haven was in a wonderful location for what we needed! Central enough that we could easily find our way around and back. We stayed with an infant and it worked out great. We just put a pack and play up in the room and we were able to use the living room the rest of the night!

    This was our first trip to Alaska and we chose a wonderful place to stay.
    The washroom was neat and clean and the entire house smelled really good.
    Had enought space to park atleast 4-5 cars.
    The place had automatic ligts at the entrance and electronic locks for the doors. You don’t have to carry the keys with you.
    The landlady welcomed us and showed a great hospitality.
    Would definately recommend to my friends.

    Great place!

    The apartment was perfect for our needs. Dome Haven was very cozy and comfortable for our stay. The place was very clean, completely private, and very quite. We took advantage of the great restaurants so we did not cook much while there, but the apartment was equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen. Linen and towels provided and the queen size bed was very comfortable. There was an additional heater in the apartment but we found the place was warm and cozy that we rarely used it. The apartment is in a great location, close to shopping, restaurants and the downtown area. Also easy to get to many attractions. We enjoyed our stay!!!
