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.

Kenai River Fishing Season Starting! Soldotna Luxury Home-Kenai Riverfront
average rating of 4.428571 based on 7 reviews

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.

Beautiful and charming home! Every detail thought about

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect home for our family from all over the lower 48 to show off the beauty of Alaska. The access to the Kenai River right off the back was incredible, and the hot tub was a perfect touch. Beds are comfy and the master toilet was the a hit With everyone in the home. You’ll have to stay here to know what we are talking about.

Kitchen is so well equipped with everything you could ever need. This was one of the best homes we’ve ever stayed in. Thanks to the hosts for also providing some fishing advice. We will be staying here again!

Absolutely the best!

  • 5 of 5

The home was even more beautiful than the pictures show. Everything was super clean, and the home had everything we needed plus more. I can not think of anything this home is missing. Everyone in my group was very pleased with the home. The hot tub on the back porch is also great. It is on the covered back porch so even when it rained we were able to enjoy it.

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.
