About The Owner

Our journey started in Switzerland. After moving to the US, we immediately fell in love with Alaska.

The Owner purchased this house in 2015

Why The Owner chose Soldotna

We chose this property because it has over 100 feet of river frontage with great fishing on the Kenai River. We also wanted privacy, and this property offered over one acre but was still a 20 minute drive into Soldotna.

What makes this house unique

The views are extraordinary. We are always so relaxed when we are here.

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything the owner said and more. It is a short hop out of town, which gives you time to view the resident moose who lives around mile 12 (be careful driving!) The neighborhood is quiet and the views of the river from the front porch are beautiful. Would rent this property again without question.

Nice clean house in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the quiet and the peace for a week and a great vacation.

Pros : Very clean, practically new. Plenty of room and open kitchen -living space. Nice back porch. The bathroom has nice big showerheads and a sauna. ( not sure sauna and smoker are set up as yet when we visited). Nice platform for fishing on the river, with a cleaning station - offering the possibility of fishing from backyard but we didn't have much luck. We caught our quota of salmon with Chadwick fishing guide service who took us to shallower waters. The backyard has views of the river through the trees, the place attracted moose and her calf who munched though the vegetation much to the delight of our kids. Nice hiking trails closeby.

cons: the place is remote and we were unprepared to not have wifi internet access. The dish TV at times loses signal if cloudy outside. Before arriving please buy your food , water and supplies in town which is 30 minutes away. Closest restaurant is also in Soldotna. The slope to the river bank is a bit steep, muddy and water was waist high in July so waders needed, there seem to be logs or other stuff in the river near the fishing platform and our lines were getting snagged, we had better fishing from public fishing spaces and from bridges. All in all very nice.
