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 your desire. Rentals are Saturday to Saturday (7 nights). They will not rent for 5 nights. Staying the 7 nights is an advantage for learning. Reserve online at www.The-Anchorage.com. 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 and increase on upper 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.
