  • Wonderful home

    "My husband and I stayed only one night at this fabulous chalet and certainly wished that we could have stayed longer. It is set up on a hill with a beautiful view overlooking Homer, Kachemak Bay and the mountains beyond. The owners are lovely and accommodating. Recognizing that we were exhausted from having slept only a few hours at the Fairbanks airport the night before they very generously upgraded us to the main apartment at no extra charge. What a nice gesture and so much appreciated. This apartment is stupendous. It has a large living area with picture windows facing the water and mountains beyond. The owner has a green thumb and there are beautiful plants in the windows and climbing the beams. The kitchen is modern with everything you need to cook full meals. The bed is very comfortable and the bedroom window coverings effectively block the 4:30A.M. sunrise. The bathroom has ample space and a great shower. The entire space is immaculately clean. The yard was freshly mowed with pretty plants and flowers. The deck is a great place to sip wine and enjoy the view. There is a BBQ grill and table and chairs where you could even eat dinner. Overall this is a lovely home which we highly recommend. Thank you so much Liz."

  • PERFECT!!

    "Breathtaking views. Perfect place to quiet your mind and be still. A seal visited us every day. I worried about my toddler's safety because of the proximity to the water. The house is very safe. Maura and Joe are very thoughtful and not at all intrusive. Maura shared vegetables from her garden! Kitchen is very well appointed. So many kitchen gadets, yay!"

  • Best cabin near Seward & Kenai Fjords!

    "My husband and I along with another couple stayed at Russ & Jen's cabin for 3 nights. We had the best time grilling salmon on the deck, fishing in the river in front of the cabin using a rod that Russ lent us, and exploring the gorgeous surroundings. Russ & Jen are truly the best hosts you could ask for -- Russ told us about things we should see and do in the area, and gave us a good feel for what it's like to live a self-sufficient life of fishing & hunting in Alaska. Jen brought us delicious pastries from her bakery The Ranting Raven in downtown Seward. The location is perfect -- just a short 20 minute drive to Seward & Exit Glacier with breathtaking views of the bay the entire way. We must have stopped at least 3 times every time to take pictures. This was by far our favorite cabin during our 10 day Alaskan Adventure! We would definitely stay again!"

  • Happy here

    "Superb location to get around this beautiful city. We were all shocked - good shocked - by a mom moose and her baby in front of the house chewing on some of the plants. We hadn't really believed Connie when she said that might happen, but it did! Fun neighborhood with some real characters. The apartment is spacious and looks just like the advertising. Connie was the best hostess. There were Alaska Reindeer sausage and buns in the refrigerator with all the fixings so we would have something to eat getting in from a late flight. She even put a note with them telling us where we could go see the Reindeer farm. Nice touches. Loads of local information in the apartment. Much appreciated. We would certainly recommend this apartment and will stay here again next summer. We plan on a much longer stay the next time as there is so much to see and do."

Alaska Travel Tips

Getting to Alaska Vacation Rentals

Most people will fly to Alaska; the primary airport hub is in Anchorage. During the summer months, there are direct daily flights between Anchorage and other major United States cities such as Denver, Minneapolis St. Paul, Portland, Salt Lake City, Dallas Ft. Worth, Atlanta, Seattle and San Francisco. From Canada, there are frequent flights from Vancouver and Toronto. Alaska is popular vacation destination for travelers from Europe and the Far East. There are regular commercial flights from Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and also Frankfurt in Germany. From Anchorage, you can get domestic flights to your destination.

Sometimes if the area you are visiting is more remote, you will need to travel by seaplane or ferry to get there. The road and rail network in Alaska is limited by the rugged glacial terrain but still provides good access to most major towns and tourist attractions. Alaska is a destination where it is helpful to have some time to spare. The landscapes are so beautiful that it is sometimes worth taking the time to enjoy rather than rushing from place to place.

Activities and Attractions at Alaska Cabins

Alaska is an adventure and outdoor haven which may be surprising to some, considering the cold climate the state experiences. In both summer and winter, there are a host of great activities that can keep you occupied on your travels. Wherever you go, you will want to take your camera with you to capture the action and great scenery. Some of the great winter attractions are the Northern Lights and the Aurora Borealis. This natural light phenomenon is amazing to see. Alaska has a number of top-quality ski resorts that offer downhill and cross country skiing. Many have snowboarding terrain parks and fun ski schools for kids. Snowmobiles are commonly used to get around in the winter months. It is a popular sport too.

The more traditional way to explore the countryside is by dog sledding. The dogs are superbly trained and exceptionally fast. This is an amazing experience. There are several places in Alaska where you can go whitewater rafting on grade IV and V rapids. Be prepared for the ride of your life on the churning white waters. For paddlers, there are many kayaking opportunities. You can also test your skills in the white waters or opt for something a little more leisurely up the fjords or along the coast. In season, you can experience amazing whale, dolphin and orca sightings and get up close to these magnificent creatures of the sea. There are endless hiking opportunities in Alaska. Serious mountaineers travel to Alaska each year to conquer Denali which is North America’s tallest peak. Alaska also has a rich gold mining history and many of the museums tell tales of the early gold pioneers.
