About the property

3 BR plus utility room with Full/Single bunk bed , 2 BA, sleeps 8

Now taking reservations for 2018. Our Hidden Cove Estate Beach House is a quality built craftsman style home and is set on 3 acres with 413 feet of beach! This creates the rare and most private ocean front setting in Ketchikan. From the house and property you can see Guard Island Lighthouse, Prince of Wales Island and the Cleveland Peninsula. All varieties of marine vessels, cruise ships and float planes pass in front of the house along with Orcas, sea lions, seals and humpback whales. The sunsets are amazing and can be enjoyed year round!

Our repeat customers are a good indicator that we are providing one of the finest homes in Southeast Alaska for your Alaskan adventure. Your hosts Ray and Kathy live 5 minutes away and are readily available to assist with your needs. As a lifetime Alaskan, Ray is anxious to share his knowledge of local fishing and activities to assure your Ketchikan visit is the best possible. We are very close to both marinas(less than 3 miles) where you can rent 20 Ft covered aluminum boats powered with 90 HP or 150 HP Yamaha engines and outfitted for any kind of fishing for around $225.00 to $350.00 per day depending on time of the summer season. Smaller skiffs available too! Fish processing and freezers provided at the marinas at very reasonable cost. They will ship your catch for you or have your fish boxed and ready for pick up prior to your flight.

The Hidden Cove Estate has three bedrooms, two of them with pillow top queens and one with two twins that can be converted to a king size. Our large utility room has a bunk bed with a full size futon. Our linens are of high thread count to add to your comfort. The living room is furnished with a leather sofa, love seat and a large HD 55" TV with all networks and movie channels for your indoor entertainment plus a Blu-Ray DVD player with a large Blu-Ray library.

The kitchen is stocked with everything you can think of (so we have been told). A generous supply of breakfast items and staples are provided. A large Weber BBQ is located on upper Patio outside the kitchen entrance for your barbecuing pleasure! All laundry, paper products and bath supplies are provided plus much more!

To add to the comfort of our guests the house is heated with radiant in floor heat throughout. The Hidden Cove beach has an Alaskan sandy beach with lots of neat beachcombing finds! Our Hidden Cove boat house is decorated with a nautical theme and has a full size bed in the loft for the more adventurous sole. It's a great place to enjoy your morning coffee.

A rental car is recommended and frees you to all Ketchikan has to offer. Everything is just minutes away! We are now on the bus route with hourly service to town at just $1.00. Fantastic hiking trails are just minutes away. Limited dates available for the 2016 peak season so plan ahead! Check in time is 4 pm and check out is at 10:30 am.

About Kathy

Ray and Kathy met in 1998 and both were building beachfront homes at the time. We married in 1999 and Ray's house was finished first so we decided to do a vacation rental with the Hidden Cove home. It has been a very rewarding experience for us as we have met so many wonderful people. Check out the sunset at Hidden Cove!!

Kathy purchased this house in 1993

Why Kathy chose Alaska

We feel this is the nicest most private beachfront location on our island. We feel extremely lucky to own it and to share the beauty with so many families and groups. We hope to see you soon at Hidden Cove. Book early as we have been (the last few years) almost fully booked for the next Peak season as early as September.

What makes this house unique

To have this remoteness and be conveniently located is truly amazing!

Best Rental in Ketchikan

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeds the amenities listed. Spotless clean and stocked like your own home. You will not be disappointed with this rental and the view is the best in Ketchikan. Sit inside or on the deck and watch the cruise ships arrive, whales, seals, and bald eagles in camera view.

Unbelievably amazing!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a vacation home that will leave you in awe, this is it! Kathy and Ray have the best and most perfect home. We use VRBO extensively and this home is the one that we talk about the most. The pictures do not really do it justice. When you reach this home you feel that you are in an alternate universe and the rest of the world does not exist even though there is a store about 3 minutes from you. The ocean is at your doorstep, literally. The bald eagles have made their home in your backyard. The fire pit overlooks the ocean and is just the place to meet in the evening for smores and more. Fishing is extensive in the area with many charters and boat rentals as well as off shore fishing. Ketchikan is about 25 to 20 minutes from the home with many touristy type activities. We have been to this home twice and will return again. It is so well stocked with every item you could ever want or need. The house is so clean that you can eat off the floors. The condition is so good that it looks new even though it is not. Beds were incredible and sleep was amazing. This house has internet as well as cable, an exercise bike, ping pong table and foozeball. There are ample dvd's available as well as you can rent them from the local Safeway, which by the way, has a Starbucks! I could go on and on about this wonderful home, but you just need to go and enjoy the VRBO of a lifetime. Thanks you Kathy and Ray for making such an experience available.

Wonderful Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house was better than the description said and it was clean and comfortable and the pictures don't do it justice. You have to see this place to believe it.

It rained the entire week we were in Ketchikan but it still was a great trip. The beach house at Hidden Cove was set up so beautifully, with homey touches. They had food in the fridge and cabinets to start off the week. We spent one whole day looking at the living room windows at the water. We were able to have family over where to sit and enjoy our selves. Since we were indoors a lot the movie collection was a great way to just relax.

We went to the Edgewater Inn Restaurant which is under new management and the food was delicious. We had 2 family dinners at the beach house and the kitchen is unbelievable, they have stocked it with everything you might need in the way of dishes and cookware.

The owners Kathy and Ray made us feel so welcome and are very nice and do their best to make your stay wonderful.

I can't say enough about this place!! I can't wait to go back.

100% Everything we'd hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

Hidden Cove is everything its claimed to be. We enjoyed a 7 night stay and this property was great. Beautiful location, great home, very accommodating/friendly hosts. The home was very clean and it was well stocked with everything needed to cook and keep clean. I would recommend Hidden Cove to anyone. We would love to stay here again, 5 stars!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply amazing. Perfect location to watch the wildlife and get the true beauty of Alaska. Kathy and Ray make you feel like you are at home, they keep the cupboards well stocked with a variety of items. The ping pong & foosball table kept our family well entertained when we weren't fishing, whale watching, or sitting around the fire. We had 8 people 7 adults 1 child and this house was very comfortable. We plan to make a return visit.

The Hidden Cove Beach House is a very short walk(across the street!) from a large convenience store (beer,wine and spirits) fishing license, gas station etc. A brand new restaurant/bar (The Last Frontier) is just a quarter mile down the road. We are located on the city bus route. Bus leaves at 10 minutes past the hour and cost is $1.00. Both marinas(rent boats, kayaks,fishing charters,fishing gear,and tours) are just three miles from Hidden Cove. Fantastic hiking trails are minutes away. Downtown Ketchikan is a fifteen minute drive. The best part of Hidden Cove is it is so close to everything but yet it feels as if you are on your own island! Please read our reviews.
