All students stay at this condo resort in exchange for use of the pool. Condos are two or three bedrooms/two baths. Share with another classmate by letting us know it’s your wish. Shared cost is about $770/person for two. Rentals are Saturday to Saturday for this course (7 nights). They will not rent for 5 nights. Staying the 7 nights is advantageous to learning! Reserve online at www.theanchoragesiestakeycom. If you call The Anchorage, let them know you’re a Miracle Swimming student when you make your reservation. Rates are lowest for the lower three floors. There is another company that rents units at The Anchorage. Our arrangement to use the pool is not with them, so please do not use them.

This course is given Saturday-Wednesday due to our 40th Anniversary Reunion beginning the end of that week. Join us for our pool and ocean party and courses!
