Recent Kodiak property reviews

  • We could have moved in permanently

    "Our family of six includes 4 daughters ages 16-22. We arrived in Kodiak late on a Saturday evening to find the apartment clean and inviting, exactly as we anticipated. Marion was there to greet us and show us where things were. The bedrooms were cozy and well represented by the photos on this site. The kitchen and living area were comfortable and the fridge was stocked. Marion loves to bake surprises and more than once we were rewarded with goodies when we returned from our days events. This apartment was the perfect place for us to get away and relax for a week while we tried to "live like the locals". I'm afraid we did sort of stand out in a good way though, and when asked where we were staying we proudly said "we are staying with Marion and Marty Owen". That information was invariably met with admiration and comments like "then you are well cared for!". The Owens are superb hosts and made us feel extremely welcome.They were never intrusive but were always very ready to answer questions and give suggestions. Mornings as we were getting ready to leave Marion would pull out one of her waterproof Kodiak maps and point out things to see and places to go along the way and then would fold the map and tell me to take it with me, "but be sure to bring it back" was always part of the instructions. She needs these maps to send with future guests. I liked the map so much that after returning hers I went down to the Visitors Center and purchased one of my own. While on Kodiak we enjoyed walking to downtown from this property. The highlights included Sea Hawk air flight out to see the bears , as well as a dinner cruise on the yacht owned by Marty and Marion. One daughter and I were able to spend some time going out with Marion to photograph landscapes and wildflowers,this is very worthwhile if you are serious about learning to improve your photography skills. There are countless beautiful places to hike and take pictures. Be sure to go to the WW II museum at Fort Abercrombie State Park. Recommended places to eat include Henry's Great Alaskan Restaurant for a sit down dinner. Java Flats has wonderful sandwiches and beverages and cookies in a very quaint and beautiful setting. Monk's Rock Coffee House is excellent for soup, salad, coffee, tea and pastries. Sparrows has wonderful pizza, if the restaurant is crowded then take it back to the apartment you will be glad you did. We were so happy with our week on Kodiak and staying in this property was the best part."

  • Quiet and Personalized

    "What a Great Place, we Loved it! The few times I stayed at a B&B previously, I was always cornered by the owners bombarding you with personal questions and the expectation of eating breakfast at a certain time with everyone else in the house and that whole social thing that I don't do well. This was not like that at all! The room had it's own entrance and we didn't even hear the owners or other guests. Breakfast was a perfect, simple selection stocked fresh in your room everyday, along with replenishment of your kcup coffee, even the milk and sugar were supplied! There were 3 in our party; the room had a bed and a pullout loveseat, and the loveseat was simple to maneuver and quite comfortable! The shower and sink were separate from the toilet, which was very convenient. Oh, and Yes, the view was truly Awesome! And don't let the town location deter you; it was very very quiet! The only 'heads up' I would offer is that there is not a big sign to find the place, and the street numbers on the block jumped quickly. But once you find it, you won't be disappointed!"

  • We will definately be back!

    "Our stay here was wonderful! The description, location and pictures were right on the mark. The condo had every amenity that you could ask for and we felt right at home. The property was very clean and well-maintained. There were 5 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone. The local restaurants are a bit spendy so we enjoyed having the option of cooking at the condo! Having the freezer on site was also a big bonus because it saved us money on fish storage! We would definitely recommend this property to our friends and family that are considering staying in Kodiak!"

  • Unique week in Kodiak

    "Great location to get away from it all. Wonderful trips into the forest, with guide. Great place to take wildlife pictures of birds and bears. The house is warm and comfortable and has all the comforts of home. Has many "toys" that you can use. Location is perfect."
