Property description

FISH ON! This luxuriously spacious 2 BR retreat is literally 20 steps to river's edge where fishing is super when the salmon are running. Wrap around windows and private deck let you watch 'the nature channel' anytime you want. A freestanding fireplace adds a warm homey ambiance for any chilly nights.

The apartment is comfortably and tastefully decorated and is situated right on the banks of the Kenai River, home to the largest King Salmon in the world. Newly remodeled with new flooring, window covers, paint, locally cut rough cut spruce trim, furniture, bathroom, bedroom and updated lighting throughout. A brand new free standing gas fireplace really makes it comfy and cozy.

The sleeping arrangements have been designed for maximum flexibility. The master bedroom has a King sized bed and a XL twin bed. The second bedroom as 2 XL Twins or it can be configured to for another King sized bed.

The brand new hideaway sofa has room for two more adults for a total of 6 people. There's a huge walk-in closet which will accommodate plenty of hanging clothes.

The Kitchen is clean. spacious with excellent appliances, granite countertops and huge island with bar stools. It is well appointed with all needed dishes, appliances and cooking utensils.

Location is very convenient as it's only a couple of miles to Fred Meyer (the largest grocery and department store on the Kenai Peninsula.) So when you hear the river, and see a moose wondering by your window, you'll feel like you're out in the country, but in fact, you're minutes away from services, restaurants and conveniences.

Newly paved road with bike path is real treat if you want to walk, jog or ride. It's 2.5 beautiful miles to the end of the road!

As you can see from the pictures, it is beautiful any time of the year but in case you're looking at booking during the summer fishing season there are other excellent amenities available to you including:
* Private bank to fish from, you don't have to do combat fishing at the public docks and fishing areas.
* Aluminum Staircase for easy access to the river bed to flip for reds (Sockeye Salmon)
* Huge aluminum cleaning table with water and chute to dispose of carcasses back into river
* Charcoal grill
* Fire pit for outdoor marshmallow fun

Top of the line Laundry facilities available within the apartment.

Guest have access to river edge fishing, industrial fish cleaning table, freezer space, charcoal grill, and outdoor fire pit. Although garage is off limits for short term summer renters, guests who rent for 7 days or longer will have to get to laundry facilities located in the garage utility room. As this is a common area, we would appreciate your cooperation in respecting the private property of owners and others which may be accessible there.

Typically we shall be present to give you keys and conduct a walk through orientation. We do not live on the premises, but very close and are available for any questions, recommendations on restaurant, activities, and even fishing tips.

Large one acre lots on the river and wooded acres across the road create a sense of being out in nature. However you're still extremely close to all the services and conveniences of Soldotna which is 2.5 miles down the road. We also love the new paved road with bicycle lane excellent for walks, bikes, jogs and rollerblading.

DIRECTIONS FROM ANCHORAGE:
There is only one highway (Sterling Hwy) onto the Kenai Peninsula which goes through Soldotna.
When you arrive to town you'll see a Fred Meyer store. (The largest all inclusive shopping store on the Peninsula).
After the first traffic light at Fred Meyer, take the first left which is East Redoubt. (E. Redoubt turns into Keystone)
Drive 2.5 miles and Keystone Retreat is on the Right - EASY!

DIRECTIONS FROM KENAI AIRPORT:
Drive to Soldotna until you get to Sterling Hwy and take a left towards Fred Meyer.
Turn right on East Redoubt.
Drive 2.5 miles and Keystone Residence is on the Right - EASY!

The owner or representative lives close by in case you have any questions or a need arises. This single bedroom self-contained apartment is attached to 2 other residences with possible renters. Our property representatives are wonderful friends who are very kind. If you bump into them, they'd think nothing of lending you a hand with netting your salmon, showing you how to fillet, or giving you pointers on places to explore as would the owner. All this to say, everyone who rents is asked to be conscientious and respectable of others property, privacy and noise level.
