PRIVATE ALASKAN WILDERNESS PARK KAYAKING DREAM LODGE

Kenai Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Sailwood Adventures is your connection to private wilderness lodging in backcountry Alaska. Surrounded by thick forest and waterfalls; La Caleta (meaning “safe cove” in Spanish) is a clean, comfortable step into rural, waterfront living. This cottage was designed to bring people together to enjoy the protection and whimsey of this small cove.

The main building of La Caleta is open two level layout with sleeping quarters upstairs. The lower portion is devoted for the living room and dining room with full kitchen. A large wrap around deck joins the separate bathouse which houses a shower, toilet and sauna. A fleet of Sea Kayaks and safety gear are all a part of your

stay at La Caleta. Sea Kayaks are a dream for traveling along the shoreline with sea otters, while watching eagles and bears forage for food.

The tempo of the tides and nature rejuvenate your spirit and allow time for wandering. The water access provides many hours of exploring by foot or Kayak towards the head of Sadie Cove. Relaxing activities as tidepooling, beach combing, clam and mussel gathering, sailing, fishing, and cooking fresh meals allow quality time with family and friends.

Sailwood Adventures can provide total support for your trip. We can help with all the logistics,from water taxi transportation, to state park access, complete with guiding services for hiking, kayaking and mt. biking. If a self designed wilderness adventure with the comforts of seaside living sound interesting to you, contact us for further details.

Our Remarkable Adventure

My husband surprised me with a trip to Alaska and after looking at VRBO he stumbled upon La Caleta. He wanted a place where we could escape from everyday life and reconnect with each other. He could not have done better. The house is immaculate. This is extremely to important to me and my expectations were completely met. The house had everything we needed in order to enjoy ourselves. The views are remarkable. Inside was warm and cozy. What a wonderful way to spend a vacation. We awoke in the morning to breathtaking views, made breakfast, sat on the deck reading books, strolled the beach or kayaked the emerald green waters. We collected mussels and clams to prepare for lunch and dinner. My husband would get the sauna ready for me to relax in. We were free, relaxed, inspired, comfortable, undisturbed, and completely taken care of. Every suggestion made by the hosts were spot on and we couldn't have been more impressed and grateful for the care and help they gave us. The tour Willie gave us on his boat was fantastic and the hike suggested had the most breath taking views were have ever encountered and I should say that we have hiked all over Central and North America. My life long dream has always been to see grizzly bears. With the help of Marcie he was able to find the perfect pilot and guide. Marcie took on this challenge as if it were her dream. I couldn't have been happier. We will definitely visit again and look forward to being able to bring our children one day too. It is obvious that Willie and Marcie put a lot of the hearts and souls into building this home. Every detail in the home has a personal touch. They truly have welcomed us into their home and it is obvious that they not only love this home but also love to share it with people will truly appreciate it. I honestly could sit and stare outside at the water for hours.

For our Vacation we chose to follow the path of Robert Frost as suggested in the Road Not Taken
"I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. " Thank you Gary and Elizabeth

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Gary and Elizabeth,
We are so glad you chose us for your special anniversary celebration. We think our secluded location is the perfect place to spend intimate time alone. The Hains spent time researching and coordinating events to make a special adventure, designed for their specific tastes. It is delightful to work with folks who have a good idea of what they are looking for. We enjoy helping folks fine tune their vacation, figure out logistics and deliver them to a piece of Alaskan heaven!!!!!
We hope to see you folks with your whole family some day.
Thanks again, Marcee and Willie

The Best Wilderness Vacation Rental of ALL TIME!

My wife and I make a point to seek out wilderness cabins for our vacation adventures, and La Caleta sets the standard for striking a perfect balance of beauty, amenities, seclusion and convenience.

Tucked deep into Sadie Cove, across the bay from Homer, AK, La Caleta is an artist's or sportsman's dream. The views out the front window are nothing short of astounding, and the surrounding waters and state park make the great outdoors super-accessible by low-tide hikes and excursions in the provided sea kayaks.

The cabin itself is a wilderness masterpiece, with more comforts and conveniences than one can reasonably expect so far off the grid. Electricity is provided by a clever water-powered system, which makes enough juice to run a small refrigerator, lights, a stereo and outlets to charge up your camera batteries.

The kitchen is well appointed with dishes, pots, pans and utensils to pull of pretty much anything you want to make on the small propane-powered stove. The water is potable, and heated by an on-demand propane system.

If you're looking for an off-the-grid vacation in one of the most beautiful places imaginable, I can't recommend La Caleta in the summer highly enough.

Once again, Willie and Marcee were able to share their wonderful slice of heaven with us. We brought some new guests with us for our second visit and they cannot stop talking about the great time they had. Eagles, fishing, sauna, beach combing, kayaking, bear viewing...the list goes on and on. I have no doubt in my mind we will be back again next summer to enjoy another getaway in Sadie Cove. Thank you very much, Marcee and Willie for the fantastic memories!

Outstanding experience and hospitality!

We just came back from a 2 night stay here and everything was perfect! We had our own kayaks, which Willie easily transported for us from Homer. We take a lot of weekend kayak trips around Kachemak Bay and this is by far the best lodge and experience that we have found. Willie and Marcee helped us with all of our gear and kayaks when we arrived, and then took the time to show us around (they even have a satellite phone that can be used in emergencies if you are concerned about being in a remote location). The lodge has a great kitchen, a nice little bathhouse with piping hot running water, and a wood-fired sauna which was perfect and toasty after kayaking in the rain. The lodge is spacious and warm with a plentiful supply of dry firewood to keep the wood stove going, and there is even a huge drying rack by the stove to dry out soggy gear. Willie and Marcee have thought of everything - even leaving us a bottle of Chilean wine that we enjoyed so much, we stopped to buy more of on our way out of Homer. :-) This VRBO is great for us as a couple, but is so spacious it would be fun for a group or family vacation (kids would have an adventure here tide pooling!). We consider this to be one of our best VRBO "finds" yet!

Owner's Response: Hey Tami and Scott,
Thanks so much for your kind words :-)
Its always great when Alaskans find us because they bring their own toys to access the wilderness. Hope to see those lovely kayaks of yours in the cove again soon.
We look forward to seeing you again, Marcee and Willie

A Very Special Place with Fantastic Views!

We spent 4 days and 3 nights at La Caleta and the only thing we would ever change is the departure date! It is an amazing place that has to be experienced to truly understand the magnitude of its beauty. Willie and Marcee have created a very special place in the middle of nature's unspoiled splendor. We spent our days kayaking the fjord gazing at the amazing jellyfish and starfish and watching the eagles. We had beach fires, fires to relax by in the house, and even fires in the sauna! The best part was the absence of others and the feeling only the remoteness can produce. We will be back!
