Upstairs · HILL HOUSE - City & Ocean Views, Downtown

Apartment in Kodiak with kitchen and balcony
Perched on Pillar Mountain, in the Kodiak Island Archipelago overlooking Kodiak City, this vintage Kodiak home is full of charm and character and promises a harmonious, relaxing vacation. Admire the breathtaking views, and convenience of being one block from downtown Kodiak.

Relax and recharge as you partake in adventures Kodiak has to offer from fishing, hiking, kayaking & paddle boarding. Explore museums, drink & eat great food. Meet locals. See the wildlife. There's something for everyone.

This newly furnished 3 bedroom/2 bath home is equipped with all that you’ll need to make your stay a comfortable and convenient one.

Design is well-thought out and attention to detail lends to maximizing the utility of the home and a spacious feel.

Decor is neutral, tied together with a theme of relaxation and harmony.

Hill House is the epitome of classic Kodiak and the perfect dichotomy!
Outstandingly located in the heart of downtown, large picture windows frame iconic views such as the Russian Orthodox Church and the Near Island Bridge. Hill House is also a hidden gem of privacy, on Pillar Mountain, down a dirt road, offering a feeling of seclusion.

This unique home is set high up on a hill and has a wraparound deck with outstanding views of town, Kodiak's bustling fishing port, snow-capped mountains & the ocean.
This is the perfect place to read, relax or enjoy your coffee/glass of wine on sunny Kodiak days.

The relaxed breeze from the ocean, the unique views, bald eagles or deer in your yard create a truly restful wilderness retreat.
Who knows you may even spot a Kodiak brown bear!

Immaculate, grand, and cozy!
For starters, the host has exceptional communication skills, as he was very responsive, helpful, and accommodating. The place was hands down one of the grandest, cleanest, and surely most welcoming places I’ve ever stayed away from home. The description of it was spot on, and did not disappoint. I’m more than grateful to have had this quality of spaces available, thanks to the owner for sharing, and making it a wonderful stay!

Great location! Spacious and comfortable!
We loved the spacious living area and the large dining table. The beds were very comfortable, which is important to us. The location was convenient to the harbor and to town. We would often walk there. We enjoyed being able to see the harbor from the deck or the windows. The property manager was very responsive to any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again.

Almost perfect! Comfortable and affordable
Thank you for a pleasant stay. I (Jessie White), my son, his father-in-law, and two friends enjoyed our stay very much. One friend’s wife had a miscarriage and stayed back in Fairbanks—five of us total. Kitchen: We didn’t use the kitchen; so, I couldn’t rate it. Looked very clean & well stocked. Living area: It served our needs just fine—spent lots of time sitting & talking about our fishing experience. Women & kids might prefer a simple area rug in the living area, to warm it up a little—-seemed cold. After developing ’sea-legs’ on our all day fishing excursion, your up-and-down, sloping floors weren’t a problem for us, lol. Bathrooms: Nice & clean. I love hot water, but you might turn it down a little—if tenants are not careful, they could get a scalding. For showering in the hall bathroom, you may want to put a no-slip mat or something in the tub. I stepped on the extra-long shower curtain and the slick soapy porcelain simultaneously and came close to falling. I survived that adventure; older people may not, lol. When we first arrived, it was raining. so we climbed the stairs pretty fast. The expanded metal on the stair treads is a great idea, since the mossy wood is very slick. **Having said all that, I would definitely stay at your place again. Sorry we arrived early; hope we didn’t cause any problems. It was pouring rain and wanted to get settled. I hope you got my phone message that we left early.
