Situated across the street from the ocean with an unobstructed view, A Water's Edge is a spacious retreat tastefully decorated in a coastal theme. Watch eagles, sea otter, occasional whales, fishing boats, and tour ships cruising by on excursions. This ocean view home is well stocked far beyond the basics and fully equipped with everything you need. Enjoy a BBQ or s'mores over a fire pit nestled among thick greenery, lush ferns and salmonberry bushes. A Water's Edge is clean and spectacular!

We always wanted a vacation rental and in 2014 we remodeled and started new! Our home is located across the street from the ocean with no obstructions to your view. The water activity is peaceful and always alive! People love our place and we thoroughly enjoy meeting new people and providing a very comfortable place for everyone. Our goal is to ensure that you are comfortable and have everything you need. We will take care of you!

Guest access
You have complete access to all areas on the property which include the fire pit to the right as you exit your front door. Door is locked using a keypad. There is plenty of parking space on both sides of the home. We have an extra large freezer located on our level that is available for your use if the freezer in the rental is not large enough for your seafood. Motion sensor light at your entrance. Large yard light that is controlled by owners. If we know you are arriving after dark, we will leave this on for you as well as indoor lamps.

Other things to note
Sitka’s popular steak house called The Channel Club, is a high-end restaurant with seafood, char-grilled steaks, salad bar, and craft drinks overlooking the beautiful Sitka Sound and surrounding islands. It is about a 10 minute walk from A Water’s Edge and they also have a free shuttle to and from. Of note, this place is closed in the winter months (sadly so). Sea Mart, Sitka’s largest grocery store is about a 15 minute walk. You will pass by Sandy Beach, a great place to sit on the shoreline or turn over rocks for beach creatures. You will also walk through Pioneer Park trail along the waterfront to reach the market. Sitka offers many, many hiking trails of which many are maintained through Sitka Trail Works.
