  • Description


    We are a family of four. We live in Anchorage Alaska and these 4 cabins are our week/weekend retreat in the summer. We like to fish, hike, walk the beaches and drive 4 wheelers in our off time. We bought this land for the amazing views and the closeness to halibut fishing. We have done the majority of work already to this place and just need someone to stay and enjoy this place as it is larger than we need for just ourselves. We have a 3 bedroom house, a 2 bedroom cabin, 1 bedroom and hope to have a studio cabin on the bluff this year.

    We have 4 cabins located in Ninilchik Alaska. 3 cabins are finished, one more (120 sq. ft) needs to be finished in interior work of sheetrock, mud and tape and flooring along with finishing out electrical and plumbing. (Plumbing and electrical are already installed, only needs to put over sheetrock and flooring. You would be staying in the one bedroom cabin while working on the smaller cabin and then moving into the smaller cabin when done for the length of stay. One bedroom cabin has full size bathroom and kitchen (running water and electricity) along with deck, tv. We are also looking for someone to mow lawn and do general upkeep (weedwacking, chopping wood for campfire and maybe some painting of cabins). Another benefit is we will fish for halibut quite often and you will have to chance to bring back with you alot of fish if interested. The cabins are located on a bluff that overlook 5 volcanoes and a beautiful view of the Cook Inlet. There is also childrens swings and play area along with a beach right in front of bluff. Also have 4 wheelers to use to explore the beach area. You must have a valid drivers license to use 4 wheelers and Ranger Pickup.

    What else ...

    You can fish on the Kenai river, visit Homer Alaska and dozens of hiking trails available. Use of Ranger pickup truck to check out sites around the area. We usually go fishing during the day in our boat and then come back and have a large campfire (2 campfire pits) and cook up the fish and enjoy the scenery. We have two kids, 7 and 9 year old girls so families would be ok. We have a hot tub and trampoline for kids to use too.
