Best Rental in Ketchikan!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far one of our favorite homes we have ever rented! It was comfortable, private and beautifully decorated. My husband, daughter and I visited Ketchikan for five days, taking the ferry from our home on a neighboring island. When our ferry was cancelled/rescheduled (twice!) Diana was so gracious and accommodating. Once we arrived at the house, we never wanted to leave! It's nestled up on a hill, among the trees, with gorgeous views of the Tongass Narrows. (Morning views were our favorite..). It's only a few minutes away from downtown, shopping, food and a great beach (Rotary Beach!). The kitchen was fully stocked for having meals in, including take-out menus for all the local fare. (We loved Garcia's Galley and the Asian Garden Sushi Bar, both just minutes away) Each bedroom had comfortable Memory Foam beds, roomy walk-in closets and oversized bathtubs with plenty of hot water. If you find yourself in Ketchikan, stay at this rental. We plan on coming back soon!

The home was beautiful, as was the view! It was absolutely perfect for our group and had everything we needed to be completely comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in Ketchikan and would highly recommend it to others!

Beautiful house! Comfortable and well furnished.

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's View was the perfect home for our group of 4 men. There are two bedrooms on the lower floor, each with a separate full bathroom, and a laundry room. Upstairs there is a full kitchen, a dining room with a table that seats four and two rooms with couch's, one with a TV, the other in front of a wall of windows overlooking the water. The kitchen is supplied with all the necessities for cooking and serving. Both the couch and the futon convert to beds. The upper deck has a table and a gas grill which was great for grilling up wonderful meals. The lower deck has a fire pit sitting just off the northern corner which was a treat to make use of and watch the stars.

Being located just south of town, it is both quiet and convenient. We fished out of Knudson Cove Marina and found the drive to be just under 30 minutes each morning, including a stop in town for a fresh cup of coffee.

The Captain's View is a great find for the Ketchikan area and will be first on our list for any future visits.

It was much better than the pictures and those were good!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was updated with new appliances. Very cozy and comfortable and even used the fire pit outside as well as the deck with the views of the water and cruise liners! I would highly recommend staying here!
