About Robin Forsi

I have been a resident of Alaska since 1980 and enjoy participating in many of the recreational activities our state has to offer and would gladly assist you as you put together the trip of your dreams.

Why Robin Forsi chose Kenai Peninsula

Enjoy beautiful sunsets and southern sun exposure all day long. View floatplanes coming and going, and all sorts of water recreation from the house deck, or the deck on the lake front. Enjoy the warmth of the lakefront fire pit as you watch the loons, ducks and eagles in the natural environment. We feel that the Kenai Peninsula area offers the very best that Alaska has to offer. :)

What makes this house unique

We are located in a private beautiful setting yet conveniently located close to town and most attractions.

Home is open yet offers everyone their own space, spacious areas to cook, dine, visit and enjoy the view of the lake, eagles, loons, ducks and of course float planes. :)

Home is a custom built home with many high end features. :)

Relaxing home with gorgeous lake view

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and super comfortable! It has a classy Alaskan theme and all amenities that you could think of. The porch is perfect for grilling out and relaxing while overlooking the lake. There are canoes on the property which are perfect for paddling around the lake and catching trout. Our family had a very enjoyable stay and Robin was super to work with. Thanks for the great vacation!

Stunning views and lovely home

  • 5 of 5

My family of 7 thoroughly enjoyed 5 nights in this beautiful home. The owner is gracious and accommodating. Beds/mattresses were super comfortable and linens appeared to be brand new. The kitchen had everything we needed and then some! And we cooked almost every day. The Traeger Grill was a huge bonus to smoke the salmon the gentlemen in our group caught. The only thing missing was a microwave (perhaps it was tucked away somewhere). The furnishings were lovely. The yard was beautifully groomed. The views spectacular.

If you're not used to the "land of the midnight sun," be sure to bring eye masks as there are no blackout curtains to block the stunning view of the pristine lake.

We highly recommend staying here. You will not be disappointed. The location is fantastic. We made day trips to Seward, Homer, and Coopers Landing. All were easily accessible in less than 2 hours. What a great way to explore the Kenai Peninsula!
