About Kevin Fraley

Jill and Kevin Fraley have lived in Alaska for 25+ years. We moved to Alaska to have a slower pace of life, to focus on raising our kids, and enjoy the out doors and the wildlife. We love people, we love the water, we love to fish and we love Alaska!

Kevin Fraley purchased this house in 2013

Why Kevin Fraley chose Kenai Peninsula

The perfect place to get away. We are right on the best part of the Kenai River! The beauty is beyond explanation. So many things to do... Fishing, cooking, eating, relaxing, napping, kayaking, hiking, and so much more!! There is no need to drive anywhere, everything is right here at your front door! Make a picnic lunch and make a fire in the fire pit. Watch the eagles pick fish right out of the water from the kitchen window, the living room or the deck. Catch salmon (in season) or trout all year long. This is a great place to bring your whole family with plenty of room to spare! 1 King and 3 queen beds and lots of couch and floor space too! Laundry and freezer space are on site too.

What makes this house unique

Large home with huge deck with gazebo, BBQ and river front fire pit. Located in town just a few blocks from stores and shopping. Private fish dock with fish cleaning station. Kayaks available to rent.

Perfect, everything you will need for a wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are great, the home is beautiful and well stocked. We've now stayed at two other VRBO homes and they do not have a quarter of what this home offers. (All the kitchen items you will need!)

The deck and entire property is amazing, plenty of space for the kids to run around and the morning sunrise on the river is breath taking. We watched eagles, fished, BBQ'd and had a campfire!

So, so, so much fun!

Thank you so much for the time and effort put into your home!

Hattiesburg, MS

River front oasis in AK

  • 5 of 5

Family of 9 adults spent 5 days at this property. Centrally located in the kenai peninsula to access homer, ninilchick, seward.

This place was everything advertised. Best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in a rental house.

Huge great room, lots of storage, plenty of freezer space for your catch of fish

The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were nice

We were always on the go but got to spend a good bit of time on the pier trying to catch some fish. The owner graciously let us use his poles so we did not have to travel with gear other than tackle

I would recommend this property to anyone

Eagle River, Alaska


  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 spent two nights at the Riverview Hideaway and had the absolute best time ever! The house was spacious, well equipped, beautifully decorated, and had every utensil one could ever imagine needing. But the highlight had to be the enormous deck overlooking the river...with 13 of us we all had PLENTY of space to gather. We loved the fire pit and the private fishing platform where we saw lots of eagles. Kevin and Jill are very gracious hosts and did everything possible to ensure that our family was comfortable and had enough bed space. We feel very fortunate to have had a chance to stay is a piece of paradise and we cannot wait to return! My family will be talking about this gathering for decades to come. Thank you.
