Raven's Roost Lower- Beachfront apartment steps to the ocean

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 2)

You can't get any closer to the beach than this new construction 2017 apartment located in the lower level of our Cedar A-Frame Cabin nestled within the trees that Eagles are perched upon directly on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Stunning views await you from every window. Watch for whales, otters, sea lions and eagles or even the resident hummingbird while enjoying your morning coffee or in the evening as you relax and listen to the waves.

The cozy one bedroom apartment has a queen size Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattress with comfortable bedding waiting for you to relax and listen to the waves just outside the window.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to create a meal, just bring the food. We provide basic spices, coffee, tea and cocoa. There is also a small selection of wine if you'd like to share a bottle, leave a bottle. The living area provides a 49" smart flat screen tv with cable and a Blu-ray player with a selection of movies to choose from. And if you need it, wireless internet is available.

For adventure, explore the tidal pools at low tide or fish from the rocks, right outside your door. Drive or walk up Harbor Mountain Road, across the street, for hiking trails or the world class view of Sitka and the surrounding mountains, islands and the Pacific Ocean. Available to use is the kayak to explore the shoreline or cross the channel to explore the bordering islands.

About Katy Wood

I have been in Sitka nearly 30 years, my husband is a lifelong resident and we have raised three amazing children who are now exploring the world. We are happy to host you in our remarkable mid century modern A-frame cabin and our newly finished apartment on the lower level. We are more than happy to help accommodate your needs and if needed answer questions and give suggestions on what to do in this beautiful town of ours.

Why Katy Wood chose Sitka

A true Sitkan adventure. Beachfront living with the beauty of the Pacific Ocean steps from the cabin and the abundant wildlife viewing from all windows and the front porch.

What makes this apartment unique

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time staying at this really nicely done apartment (lower level of larger house). We brought our bikes and it's an easy ride into town. The beach just outside of the house is great for tidepooling. The kitchen was excellent (and the knives were actually sharp!). Overall would recommend this place to anyone.

Charming rental with views to die for!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place was perfect. Great location, great owners, easy communication. I was provided with enough information to operate all the electronics. I appreciated the privacy I was afforded. I got sick on this trip and it was a great place to curl up with a fuzzy warm blanket and watch the wildlife out the windows. I saw eagles, otters, ducks, whales, boats, planes, was wonderful!! Grocery shopping and restaurants nearby.

We had an incredible 5 day stay. The rental is well appointed with much attention to details. The location is perfect; you can’t get any closer to the ocean. We enjoyed watching sea otters and various birds each morning while eating breakfast. Finally, on the last day, WHALES! We will be back! Thank you Katy for a wonderful place to stay while visiting beautiful Sitka.

We’d love to stay here again. If there is a better view, I don’t know of it. Everything was clean and tidy. The kitchen was well appointed and the bed comfortable. Everything you need for an adventure in Sitka can be found here!

Hands down the nicest VRBO property we've rented.

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at Raven's Roost. I've rented several properties through VRBO and have always found the pictures posted by the property owners fail to accurately represent the rental. Not so in this case. If anything, they underestimate the beauty of this location. You will not be disappointed.

One of Sitka's unique qualities is its natural beauty and how that is artistically expressed. Here you will find rich cultural expressions of native art, music with extensive festivals, museums showcasing the history, and of course the abundant wildlife and outdoor activities that go with living in the most beautiful landscape.
