About Mike and Gina Friccero

We are a Local fishing family, Owners of F/V Miss Gina that fishes Halibut and Salmon and Cod commercially. Our grown children also participate in the fisheries. We built an addition on to our home and designed it for a B&B, so it is well laid out, and very comfy.

Mike and Gina Friccero purchased this house in 1998

The views are spectacular, the location is convenient. Each room has private deck overlooking the ocean. Children are welcome! Perfect accommodations for the executive traveling for business or the family vacation. Romantic for couples, too!

Loved the location, close to everything. Did not have a car and it did not matter. The view out the window was Awesome. Comfortable bed. Loved coming back each day to find all of the treats left in the room for breakfast. Highly recommend

Perfect home away from home while visiting family!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the apartment are representative of what I found. The pictures from the little porch and picture window do not do the actual view justice though! The bed was very comfortable. I slept very well. It is sufficiently furnished to have a light breakfast... small refrigerator, microwave, Keurig, toaster, plates, etc. Fresh pastries and fruit were supplied everyday. It is located within walking distance to downtown and to some good hiking on Near Island. I am certain that it represents one of the best bargains in the area. I would definitely book again!

Beautiful and relaxing B&B

  • 5 of 5

I spent one night at Awesome Views B&B - I am in Kodiak for work, but planning when I can get back here for vacation. The B&B is located in a beautiful spot in Kodiak, close to food and shops, right on the water. We spent the evening sitting on the balcony drinking wine and watching pods of seals swimming back and forth. The room is clean and has everything you might need. Great place to stay!!

cozy and convenient

  • 4 of 5

The Mermaids Lair was all that I hoped for! Great view of harbour and short walk to town. I wasn't feeling well when I was in Kodiak...I appreciate Gina and Mike's kind hospitality. I had a super day trip exploring the island with local tour guide.. Kodiak island is beautiful!
