This home is situated 34 feet from the bank of the world famous Kenai river. It is located 200 yards downstream from the confluence of the Kenai and the Funny river. It is situated in a prime fishing area on the Kenai river and it is yours to enjoy. Fishing for reds and silvers can normally be done immediately in front of the home from the waters edge with hip-boots.
Kings can be fished by boat upstream and downstream from the home during the season. A huge cedar deck, with benches, chairs and a picnic table fronts the property and runs along the river. Enjoy the peace and quiet, sit and watch the river, the wildlife, or others in your party fishing. Enjoy your own private fire pit in the evening while you relive the day's events.
The home is located in a small subdivision 11 miles from Soldotna. It has a quiet secluded atmosphere especially since the entire opposite bank of the Kenai is undeveloped. A golf course, open to the public, is less than 1 mile away.
If you just want to 'mellow out', enjoy the lower deck with the tranquility of the river flowing inches away, or if you are looking for a base of operations, then this is the place. This home is centrally located on the Kenai Peninsula; 15 minutes from Soldotna, 30 minutes to Old Town Kenai, one hour to either Deep Creek/Ninilchik or the Russian River and an easy two hours to either Homer or Seward.

My wife and I spent 20 years in the military with a three year assignment to Alaska from 79 to 82. We retired in 1985 when an opportunity arose to return to Alaska and pursue a position in Anchorage. We lived in Anchorage, with frequent trips to the Kenai Peninsula, for another 24 years. Our three children attended high school in Anchorage and then colleges outside. They are now outside with their families but we are still here. During our years in Anchorage we were always going 'South' to the Kenai /Soldotna area for recreational purposes. We found this home in 1996 and have enjoyed it ever since.
We purchased this property with the intention of eventually using it as our retirement home. In 2007 we started building a log home on an adjoining lot. It was completed in 2009, we've moved in, and we are now offering the listed property as a vacation rental. We love the area, the closeness to the river and the frequent opportunities to observe the abundant wildlife. We love the opportunity to fish with family and friends without the crowds so common elsewhere.
We enjoy the seclusion and the many recreational opportunities in the immediate area. The fishing is great and the opportunities to observe the local wildlife are frequent. During the summer the gulls and eagles are ever present and we enjoy watching them scouring the river for a treat. Moose, bears, lynx, wolves and caribou also frequent the surrounding area.
Clamming for razor clams at low tides on area beaches. Nearest clamming beach is 45 minutes away. Nearest halibut charters are located at deep creek approximately one hour away. Numerous additional halibut charters are available at either Homer or Steward.
