WATERFRONT BEACH HOUSE/STUNNING VIEWS - COHO BEACH HOUSE

Ketchikan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

There's a magical feeling when you're at Coho Beach House -- one guest referred to it as 'The Healing House.'

Seeing marine life swim right under the deck; enjoying the weather and views (rain or shine) from any room; watching the bird activity, the passing boats and sea planes all lend to the pleasures of this home away from home.

This spot is known for having the best sunset views around. And if it's stormy, just cuddle up, listen to the waves, and watch from the warmth of the house. Or, if the water is calm, there are also kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands

This is the perfect place to relax, have a little romance, or if you are looking for outdoor activities like fishing or hiking, the beach house is just a short drive from anywhere on the island.

Even though our minimum stay is 4 nights, if you see a 'window' of three nights available, please feel free to submit an inquiry.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed

About Maura Odell

Friends for 40 years, partners in Coho Beach House since 2004. The Odells and the Hooks dreamed of living near the water for years, and when they became owners of this property it was a dream come true. Both couples live on 'The Point' by the beach house, and are available if needed, but also respect the privacy of guests. Three are life-long Alaskans, and the fourth has been here since 1979, so this is home for us.

Maura Odell purchased this house in 2004

Why Maura Odell chose Ketchikan

The location of the beach house is known in the community as having the best sunsets in the area.

The beach house was built in the late '40's or early '50's and had been well used and loved by many, but it was in dire need of repair.

We considered demolishing it, but instead rebuilt it from the pilings to the roof. The interior layout remains the same, but it's much more comfortable now.

It was truly a labor of love, and we love to share its charm with our guests.

What makes this house unique

Outstanding wildlife viewing at your door. Watch the tide come and go; seals, sea lions, and the occasional whales swim by; and eagles in flight from the windows and deck at Coho Beach House.

The stairs to the beach offer easy access for tide pool exploring, and there are two kayaks available for paddling around Ward Cove and the nearby Channel Islands.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our adventure to Ketchikan. Your guesthouse is so warm and cozy, it was nice to come “home” to at the end of the day. It has been so relaxing and awesome. We were able to see some wonderful wildlife while sitting at the house such as Killer Whales (thanks to Dan for the call), seals, starfish and a few Bald Eagles. Our timing for our trip did limit our ability to enjoy many of the tourist attractions, but being able to sit and look at such a wonderful view made up for it since I’m not sure we would have wanted to be gone a lot anyway.Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of heaven. We will be back.

Vacation Cabin

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful cabin! We really enjoyed our vacation there. We got a chance to see and film a couple of killer whales coming through and the bald eagles woke us up on more than one occasion in the mornings. Couldn't have asked for a finer wake up call!!
This was our first visit to Alaska and we hope to return. Thanks for letting us stay in your sweet cabin!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
We fell in love with this home the moment we walked in!! We had a great time seeing and doing things in and around Ketchikan including lunch with The Governor at Ward Lake one day but the highlight every day was coming back and barbecuing while watching the sun set and all of the activity happening out on the water. One of the most relaxing trips we have ever enjoyed!

Owner's Response: Katy said you had a surprise visit from a passing boat that dropped off fresh crab. You really experienced the Alaskan spirit! We hope to see you again sometime.

AWESOME, peaceful, relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Sitting on the deck enjoying coffee each morning with the eagles overhead and the cruise ships quietly sailing by was priceless. You need to rent a car to stay at this property. It is about 10 minutes from town, but a whole other world of relaxation. We thoroughly enjoyed traveling north to Ward Lake and the wonderful beaches and parks at the road's end.
A few thoughts:
-Though the property is set back from the road, I was concerned about noise because it's on the main road. Noise was not a problem for us at all.
- The house was well-appointed with many extras - bug spray, fishing poles, lures,other fishing items, suntan lotion, laundry detergent, etc., so check the cabinets before shopping.
- The main road is busy and does not seem like a safe place for your daily runs or walks. I am a runner and drove 5 minutes north to the trails at Ward Lake to run each morning.
- The house is beautiful and you cannot beat the deck! Eagles right over your head and otters at your feet. It felt private and serene.
- The beds were very comfortable and the views from the bedrooms are amazing.
- The heat worked very well on chilly nights!!!
- Loved having the washer and dryer, which both worked very well.

This property was the best we've ever rented and we will return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review. We want our guests to share any issues or concerns about the beach house, and I had wondered about the road noise myself, so it's nice to know it's not a problem. During the remodel, which was extensive, we also insulated all of the interior walls for extra sound proofing. Looking forward to meeting you on your next visit! Maura

Stunning location

  • 5 of 5
We (2 couples from Australia) spent 4 nights at Coho Beach House and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We found the owners were extremely helpful from our first contact with them via email, to our departure. The house was located out of the busy area of Ketchikan, was well set up for us to be able to cook for ourselves and included some everyday grocery items in the cupboards. The house was surrounded by a deck that was well used during our time there and we witnessed stunning sunsets over the 4 nights. The photos on the site are very accurate. Thank you for allowing us to unwind and relax after 2 busy weeks cruising on a small boat on the Inside Passage.

If you are looking at this property..grab those dates that you want! You will not be sorry! Our week there was incredible. It probably is the best vacation ever! We went crabbing, charter fishing, ziplining, went on a float plane, a boat excursion to Misty Fjords and the came home each day to the beach house that felt like home. We spent plenty of time at the house besides those daily outings. The sunsets were beautiful and we enjoyed the daily viewing of the cruise ships and float planes. The house is spotless and the best stocked rental we have ever seen.
Like I said grab those dates..you won't regret it!

Especially in May and June, the eagles and seals are around daily. Later in the summer you can pick fresh red and blue huckleberries just outside the kitchen for your pancakes.

Year round beach combing and tidepool exploring. Kayak into Ward cove to see the seals, or cruise aroung the Channel Islands.
