About Kevin Fraley

Jill and Kevin Fraley have lived in Alaska for 25+ years. We moved to Alaska to have a slower pace of life, to focus on raising our kids, and enjoy the out doors and the wildlife. We love people, we love the water, we love to fish and we love Alaska!

Kevin Fraley purchased this house in 2013

Why Kevin Fraley chose Soldotna

The perfect place to get away. We are right on the best part of the Kenai River! The beauty is beyond explanation. So many things to do... Fishing, cooking, eating, relaxing, napping, kayaking, hiking, and so much more!! There is no need to drive anywhere, everything is right here at your front door! Make a picnic lunch and make a fire in the fire pit. Watch the eagles pick fish right out of the water from the kitchen window, the living room or the deck. Catch salmon (in season) or trout all year long. This is a great place to bring your whole family with plenty of room to spare! 1 King and 3 queen beds and lots of couch and floor space too! Laundry and freezer space are on site too.

What makes this house unique

Large home with huge deck with gazebo, BBQ and river front fire pit. Located in town just a few blocks from stores and shopping. Private fish dock with fish cleaning station. Kayaks available to rent.

Very impressive!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and lived up to all the online photos and our expectations. The owners were super nice and helpful. We made our reservation a year in advance and over that time our group of 14 (8 adults and 6 kids) had plenty of questions. They were always answered quickly and in detail. I can't thank Kevin and Jill enough for making a vacation for this many people and from so far away (central Florida) such a great experience.

Soldotna Home on the Kenai

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! Kevin and Jill were top drawer in accommodating our needs and being available. They were excellent hosts! The house was extremely well appointed; comfort beyond our expectations! The deck and fishing platforms were the best we have had in the five years we have been fishing the Kenai. The deck was fantastic! Ron, Sue, Cari, and Garrett from Oregon.

Comfy and well appointed large home on the Kenai river

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable home perched high above the Kenai River. Spectacular decks create loads of extra outdoor living space for the whole crew. As mentioned in early reviews, this home is ideal for several/many couples travelling together or large families. We used the home for a guys trip. Four nights in June for 10 people. We had to improvise with the bed situation, since there are lots of queen beds and a king in the main master bedroom. The hosts provide lots of air mattresses as well, if needed. 3 full baths and a half bath, so bathrooms and showers were never an issue. Kitchen was well stocked with all the little niceties one could ask for. And a Weber gas grill on the deck. There is a Safeway about a mile away so no need to cart food down from Anchorage.

The hosts were great -- thanks for a memorable stay.

Lots of memories made!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed this lovely home immensely! Lots of memories were made spending time together on the beautiful deck, watching the bald eagles. Fishing wasn’t great (we were there early) but the location was central and made day trips very convenient. Kevin and Jill were extremely responsive and so accommodating! We hope to return!
