About Janet and Marv
We have had the awesome privilege of living in Soldotna for 35 years. After raising 4 children and retiring from the fire department as a paramedic/engineer, we are loving this season in our lives.......... fishing, golfing, and enjoying grandchildren. We also enjoy helping our guests plan their Alaskan adventure!
Janet and Marv purchased this Townhome in 1990
Why Janet and Marv chose Soldotna
Soldotna is a perfect location for your Alaskan adventure! Whether your desire is to fish or hike or kayak or go birding, we are at the center of it all! Just a 3 hour drive from the Anchorage airport, Homer is 70 miles down the road, Seward is 90 miles and only 1 mile from downtown Soldotna to your door!
What makes this Townhome unique
Standing on the deck, there is not another building in sight. Just the bird filled trees, the beautiful Kenai River with all of it's abundant fish, and the woods & the tops of the mountains towards Anchorage. Great hiking trails right outside your door or take advantage of the paved bike path that goes right into Soldotna. It is common to see eagles & moose along with other wildlife.

Great condo on the river
We had a great stay in Soldotna and at Riverfront Vacation Condo. The condo was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. It is centrally located on the Kenai Peninsula so everything is a short drive away. We just missed the Red Salmon run but everything else went just great. Thank you Marv and Janet.
Lovely River View
The owners of the property were lovely people and the location was beautiful.
Excellent Accomodation with Fantastic View
This riverfront, two-unit condo on the river was perfect for our family visit to Kenai. Weather was gorgeous (80 deg), so sitting on the balcony to eat breakfast/dinner with the Kenai river flowing by was fantastic. Condo is one of two one-bedroom units (we were in Sourdough) that I believe are mirror images of each other - so could accommodate two couples or small families equally. Our unit (believe both) are one bedroom with sofa sleeper in living room area. Usually hate sofa beds, but this one has a blow up mattress topper that is fantastic (takes about 10 seconds for auto airpump to fill). Good HD TV and cable/sat with Wifi (a bit slow, but ok for non-millennials)
Kenai river is just down some steps and along a walkway where you can fish or enjoy a 6 hour sunset (dusk) and watch the numerous bald eagles after dinner. The river was very high, deep and very fast during our stay, so wasn't able to catch fish, but owner has courteously provided access to rods/reels for use (provide your own terminal tackle). Also, a freezer is available for fish you might catch there or from taking any of the numerous nearby guided tours. Condo is well furnished for cooking and there is a pay washer/dryer available. Deck is great (partially shared with other unit) and has nice barbeque which we used nightly. The unit is on a very quiet, private street, but main street Soldotna (Safeway, etc) is just a couple of miles away.
Janet and Marv live just next door and are very accommodating. We were unsure of our time of arrival (driving from Talkeetna) but Janet provided excellent instructions on how to find and access the unit. They are as available/responsive as you need them to be and likely great resources for information on local services/guides/etc.
In addition to the fishing equipment available, there is also a basketball hoop in the driveway, badminton rackets/birdies and a nice lawn area (with swing set) next to the wide, flat parking area in front.
One note: I mentioned that the river was high and fast (running 15mph according to local guide) during our stay. As shown in picture of chairs by bank of river, there is no fence or barrier (nor should there be given focus on preserving natural riverbank) so need to be careful and parents in particular should not allow children to play/run or be unattended in this area if water is up.
Look forward to staying with Jan and Marv again.
