In Alaska since 1979 and on the Kenai Peninsula for over 24 years, Carole Okamoto and her husband opened the A Hiada-way apartment rental in 2006. Carole invites travelers into small-town Alaska life with her gracious hosting and story telling at A Haida-way. She makes sure guests not only experience privacy and quiet, but also get a peek into life in Alaska. Carole, an Alaska Native, has decorated the place with Haida and tribal art, as well as Alaska wildlife prints.
Carole will share stories about fishing, sewing furs, and Alaska history. Or she’ll direct you to the best clamming spot or recommend guides who know the best fishing holes.
First trip to Alaska. Beautiful setting with gorgeous sunsets and mountain views. Watched fisherman trolling for salmon from the high river bank. Clean, comfortable accommodations - good location. Everything you need. Carol is a terrific hostess. Ask her for a taste of her smoked salmon.
If you want to experience Alaska, and make sure it feels like somehow you have come home, this is the place to stay. The beauty from the deck of the Kasilof river is outstanding. The welcoming kindness of the owners that have your apartment prepared and decorated in utmost Alaska heritage simply cannot be matched. The cleanliness of this apartment cannot be equaled and every single amenity you would possibly need, is provided. You are close to halibut fishing or salmon fishing or clamming or what ever you would want to do.
If you are looking for a beautiful place to lay your head down at night, along with an owner that actually makes you feel welcome, this is the place to be! Booking trips to Alaska can be difficult but Carole definitely makes everything run smoother. The rental is a beautiful, private area. The perfect getaway!
