About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

“The Nest” Guesthouse is quite like an Eagles Nest perched on the edge of the high bluff overlooking the ocean down below. Sitting on a nearly 2 acre lot at the end a quiet road, it's unobstructed view watches the puff of a whales blow hole, rafts of sea otters and fishing boats catching Kings Salmon and Halibut down below in Kachemak Bay and the Lower Cook Inlet. It's view extends from the shores near Seldovia to Mt. Redoubt including the expanse of Mountains and Volcanoes that make up the Alaskan Ring of Fire.

It occasionally catches a glimpse of a lynx, black bear, coyote or a moose and on a daily basis enjoys the company of playful ravens, soaring eagles, hawks, and strutting cranes and pheasants.

the Nest is a 1200 square foot 3-bedroom/2 bath house that can easily accommodate 6 people but cozy enough for 2. It's open floor plan is a comfortable place for friends and family to gather and enjoy each others company.

'The Nest' is complete in every way with a washer & dryer and a full kitchen loaded with all the appliances, pots, pans, utensils and staple foods. Each bedroom has an incredible view and can sleep either 2 singles or 1 couple.

It is adorned with warm custom furnishings, butcher-block counter tops, and beautifully painted and decorated rooms. With a wrap-around deck you can use the Weber grill to cook up some freshly caught fish or just sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

It's private location, amazing view, and comfortable interior make the 'Nest' Guesthouse a ideal home for your vacation. Call Chris and I'll be happy to help you make your vacation an amazing experience.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I'm a traveler. I love to travel and have been all over the world. I also really love living in Alaska and what Alaska has to offer me as a resident and others that travel to it. It's an amazing place. I really wanted to create a place that is a "home away form home" for other travelers so they get the feeling of living here. I also help provide that incredible experience that should come to someone that travels to the last frontier of Alaska.

Why the Owner Chose Diamond Ridge, AK, USA:
This is an incredible place. It is sitting on a bluff overlooking the waters of Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet as well as both the Aleutian and Kenai Mountain Ranges. It is custom with homey feel and a great place to escape and experience Alaska with friends and family.
