My wife and I went here for our first wedding anniversary. The accommodations are rustic(that's how we like it) but well maintained and have running water, electricity and wifi! The owner lives on the property but we found we could see as much or as little of her as we wanted. Lots of outdoor activities and a prime location to take off on a beach walk or a boat ride. It's a short ride to downtown Seldovia where we had an excellent lunch and then ate wild strawberries and took in the beauty of the area. Our dog had a blast chasing sticks on the beach and chasing the salmon jumping in the water. It was so much fun I almost want to leave a bad review so that no one else knows about it! Can't wait to go back!

An Unforgettable Experience
An Unforgettable Experience
Alaska now has a very special place in my heart, and this place really did it. Staying in Between Beaches is so much more than an accommodation - it is truly an unforgettable experience. The area lives up to the saying, "where the road ends, Alaska begins" The cabin holds original pieces from early 1900s when it was built, the stove, many of the dishes, and interesting antiquities. At the same time, modern amenities like the beds accommodated my husband, 2 year old daughter and myself comfortably. The photos accurately reflect the place and it was well equipped with amenities. We spent our 5 days relaxing on either of the two beaches (both literally a few steps away), exploring around the area, kayaking, and visiting Seldovia - charming little town about 15 minutes away. Most of all, it was wonderful to let my toddler roam around everywhere without being worried. It is a very safe environment with so much for kids to do. The owner, Kristi, was kind, fun, and very accommodating, as were her neighbors. We thank them all for making our stay unforgettable! I would just recommend others to bring rubber boots esp. for children as they are not sold in Seldovia - my daughter ran around in wet shoes most of the time - and whatever provisions you will be needing from Homer before taking the water taxi to the cabin. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. Overall, I would strongly recommend this place!

About: Kristi McLean: is a self-supporting artist and fisherman. She was born and raised in rural Alaska to a fishing family. This property belongs to her family. Each year she returns to this homestead in Alaska to reconnect with the land and sea that has been so inspirational to her art work. In fact, there is kelp forest shower created and installed by the artist herself. There is a working fish-site on the property, an artist studio with art installations accenting the cabin. Another unique highlight is the 100 gallon outdoor aquarium. Kristi's favorite thing to do on the property as a child was to collect sea life for view in the aquarium and release at the end of the year.
History: Alaskan Pioneers built this rustic cabin and retaining it's historic charm, water and electricity were later added for comfort. It has everything you need for an unforgettable stay. Kristi lives next door and can answer any questions.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
