                                                            I just want to say what a great time we had at your lovely home on the Kenai River! The home was well kept and came well stock with lots of pots and pans, utensils, linens & blankets, and extra fishing supplies. The neighborhood is very friendly and this made our vacation even more memorable. Location is what we wanted - not to far or to close to the town of Soldotna. We especially loved the home's caretaker, Leora...she was always available when we needed something - Thank you! We will definitely recommend your lovely home to friends and family. We are hoping to return to your lovely home next year. Thank you, Friends from Kauai!
