About Kristi McLean

Your hosts, Kristi and Brad, are true Alaskans having spent most of their adult lives working and enjoying the great Alaska outdoors. Kristi, a life long Alaskan, was raised in a log cabin by her pioneer parents. By the age of 20, she had already coached skating and skiing, commercial fished, and was running her own boat and crew. Commercial fishing for salmon, halibut, crab, and herring have taken her throughout Alaska's waters. A self-taught artist, working primarily in clay, she spends her free time sculpting in the new Alaska studio. Brad arrived in Alaska as a teenager, found work with a big-game guide, and at 21 became a registered guide. He started his own guiding business and for over 20 years guided hunters and fishermen from all over the globe. Being a pilot for over 40 years, he has been able to see most of Alaska from his plane. In addition Brad builds wood skiffs and drift boat here in his work shop.

Why Kristi McLean chose Seldovia Village

Aside from the cozy, well-appointed rental cabins (VRBO#s 993127, 661493, 449876) in a stunning and unique location, you are surrounded by art at Between Beaches. Ceramic sculptures as well as instillations made from copper, glass floats, drift wood, other beach combing finds, and clay are around every corner--even in your shower! Also, don't miss a tour of the art studio where Kristi works all winter to provide you with one-of-a-kind ceramic pieces and art kits for purchase that will provide perfect reminders of your time at Between Beaches Alaska--look us up!

What makes this cabin unique

The waters of Kachemak Bay are some of the richest in the world for sea life, offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Here you will see whales, bald eagles, and sea otters from your doorstep. The unique geology of the area, has produced a fantastic setting for beach combing, tide pooling (best at minus tides), fishing and wildlife viewing. Watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other.

A magical experience

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay at the fisherman's cabin. Kristi, the owner, is a wonderful artist which the cabin reflects. Her artwork makes the cabin seem enchanted. The location on the spit allows you to hear the ocean all night long and wake to the sounds of the birds. The eagles and otters kept me company as I walked the beach which is beautiful. I enjoyed exploring the tidal pools and took hundreds of pictures. Kristi was warm and inviting and made sure that I had everything I needed to make my stay comfortable. I even enjoyed the beach at night, I had a campfire on the beach with a glass of wine. I can't wait to return next year.

Great, simple cabin - wonderful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing, small, simple cabin. There are just the basics and nothing more - it's a great break from the normal day-to-day. Kristi was very welcoming and available if we had any questions or issues.

The cabin is well-maintained and very clean. The scenery was beautiful and the atmosphere was tranquil. Lots to do outside, including fishing from the beach.

We would highly recommend staying here.

Super place to stay in an attractive location

  • 5 of 5

The cabin itself and the locale is charming. Being between beaches is a terrific advantage as one can walk in less than a minute "between beaches" to take advantage of lighting conditions, and breezes. The property owner was extremely accommodating and willing to share tidbits of the local lore and interesting ways by which residents make their ways in this marine environment. We had 2 days of paddling our kayaks each one was a worthy adventure. Thank your for this lovely vacation spot.

We loved the cabin! Unique location and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I'm from Alaska and was very excited to bring my girlfriend from LA for her first visit. The host, Kristi, was very easy to coordinate with and made sure we had everything we needed. It's important to note that you need a water taxi or boat to bring you across from Homer so make sure to account for that when organizing your trip.

There are few places like Macdonald Spit and our cabin had an incredible view. The inside was very well done and had great touches like a custom copper shower. We loved staying here and can't wait to visit again. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

MacDonald Spit is a very unusual land formation known as a glacial terminal moraine. The property is aprox. 75 feet wide with a beautiful sandy beach on each side. We have extreme tides here which offers us great clamming and tide pooling at minus tides. Please check tide tables. A short land taxi ride can take you to the village of Seldovia from our trail head. If it is windy on one beach you can crossover to the other.
