About Janet and Marv

We have had the awesome privilege of living in Soldotna for over 30 years. After raising 4 wonderful children and retiring from the fire department as a paramedic/engineer, we are loving this season in our lives ....... Enjoying our grandchildren, fishing, golfing and traveling. We also enjoy helping our guests plan their Alaskan vacations!

Janet and Marv purchased this studio 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 studio unique

Standing on your 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 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.

Relaxing and Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

Janet's little place was everything that we needed for the four days that we were in Soldotna. From the full kitchen to the fishing pole & tackle and the outside grill, it was superb! Janet is very hospitable and she even let us check out late. We highly recommend Kenai Riverfront Cozy Studio!

Wonderful, cozy place

  • 5 of 5

I spent 9 months in the cozy studio suite from August 2014 to May 2015. It was a great experience and I would recommend this studio to anybody who comes to the area. It is small, but comfortable for 2 people. The bed is comfy and the decor gives it a cabin-like feel. They have a small flat screen TV in the room and they offer free WiFi. Just outside the studio, there is a patio with chairs and a grill to cook your freshly caught salmon from the Kenai river. Speaking of the river, the have great access on the bank to catch fish. You can see and hear the river from inside the studio. But what I like most of all were the owners, Marv and Janet. They are friendly, nice people who will go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. Thank you so much for the hospitality.

Room with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We spend several nights in the area and enjoyed coming home to the studio and sitting on the lawn watching the birds and the river flow by. Janet was very helpful and even let us get herbs from her garden to use on our fresh salmon we grilled. The studio was very clean and well stocked. We did a lot of things, went to Homer, Hope, Seward, fishing, and kayaking. It is a good midway point so you don't have to move around alot. Very peaceful place and can even see moose in the neighboorhood.We hope to come back soon!

Nice Studio at the Kenai River

  • 4 of 5

The listing description was accurate regarding the location. The listing photos also reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. The property was very clean and met all our expectations. We found all that we needed for our stay. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and gave us a lot of advice. We enjoyed staying at this property and we loved the view at the river from the inside as well as from the terrace outside. The only thing what we like to complain is that the tap water smelled and therefore we could not drink it. We would have rated the overall experience as excellent, if there had not been this smelling water. We will recommend this property to friends and relatives. As we travelled around and only had a short view in the surroundings it is not possible to recommend any activities, attractions or restaurants. We visited Kenai town, which is a small nice place to see and in Soldotna we found a big supermarket.
