Property description

Welcome! We invite you to bring your family and friends to this spectacular destination! Here you can watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other! Our rustic 12' x 16' rental cabins, located on MacDonald Spit, are only steps away from the beach and waterfront of Kasitsna and Kachemak Bays. Each cabin, surrounded by spruce and alder, offer spectacular views of the bays, islands, and snow-capped mountains with out standing in their shade. Built by Alaskan pioneers, the Pioneer Cabin faces Kasitsna Bay and glows in the morning sunrise. The Cannery Cabin, built by Kristi and Brad, faces Kachemak Bay and catches the evening sunsets. Both cabins are equipped with full-sized bed and extra sleeping cot, full kitchens with running water, microwave, small fridge, electric heat, shower, and toilet. We provide utensils, pots and pans, towels and linens, and WIFI. Each cabin site includes picnic table, BBQ with propane, Adirondack chairs, clam rakes and buckets. Renters may use our fish cleaning table, freezer space, and rowboat. Kayaks for rent through Mako's water taxi. Whether you come to relax or play, enjoy an evening beach fire as the sun sets at 11:30 at night! Latitude and Longitude for mariners: 59.47635N 151.58977W

Year Purchased: 1965

About: Your hosts, Kristi McLean and Brad Langvardt, are true Alaskans having spent most of their adult lives working and enjoying the great Alaska outdoors. Kristi, a life long Alaskan, was raised in a log cabin by her pioneer parents. By the age of 20, she had already coached skating and skiing, commercial fished, and was running her own boat and crew. Commercial fishing for salmon, halibut, crab, and herring have take her throughout Alaska's waters. A self-taught artist, working primarily in clay, she spends her free time sculpting in the new Alaska studio. Brad arrived in Alaska as a teenager, found work with a big-game guide, and at 21 became a registered guide. He started his own guiding business and for over 20 years guided hunters and fishermen from all over the globe. Being a pilot for over 40 years, he has been able to see most of Alaska from his plane. In addition Brad builds wood skiffs and drift boat here in his work shop.

Why Seldovia:
The inspirational wonder of Alaska's marine environment is right outside your cabin door.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The waters of Kachemak Bay are some of the richest in the world for sea life, offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Here you will see bald eagles and sea otters from your doorstep. The unique geology of the area, has produced a fantastic setting for beach combing, tide pooling (best at minus tides), fishing and wild life. Watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other.
