Why Stephen Foreman chose Kodiak
Kodiak is an awe inspiring, untouched treasure. All who visit are taken aback by its breathtaking views and rugged terrain. After 28 years of combined island life we are daily amazed by Kodiak's beauty and opportunity for adventure. After a busy day out playing, the warm, inviting, home atmosphere will be the perfect place to unwind with family and friends. Our home will afford you the opportunity to experience Kodiak how we do, away from a crowded hotel, with an amazing channel view, and for a very reasonable price.

Stephen was awesome to work with, very attentive and personally meet us and walked us through the house. Beautiful views, comfortable beds and well stocked kitchen. We rented the truck which served us well.
Great Views & Great Location!
We had a wonderful stay in Kodiak. Stephen was very helpful and responsive. We came with our kids and enjoyed using the kitchen and socializing in the great room. The views of the boats traveling in and out of the channel, the float planes taking off and landing on Near Island, and the whales feeding in the distant water made our stay extra special. We also rented the truck which made our trips to the store and coffee shops very easy. The home is in good walking distance to almost everything, but the truck was nice for getting out to our hiking spots and Safeway/Walmart. Stephen also took us whale watching one night. We had great weather and I definitely recommend taking this special boat tour. It's a great way to see the Island from a different perspective. Plus the whale watching was fantastic too.
Very nice apartment and host. Very recommend
Everything was great
A unique Alaska experience.
What you see in the pictures is what you get. The place is clean and well appointed and decorated. The location is convenient on a relatively busy st., but overlooks a deep blue water channel behind and you could entertain yourself just watching the boats drive by from the comfort of your living room. You can also walk to several restaurants and museums, so it is a terrific home base to explore Kodiak. Stephen is terrific. A school counselor in Kodiak, so a real community member who can give you a sense of the place. He was super responsive to our questions and needs but also gave us privacy -- perfect balance of friendliness and allowing space for privacy. We also rented a truck from Stephen which allowed us to do day trips to local beaches. Surfer and Fossil Beaches were terrific, with Gray whales spouting regularly just a few hundred yards off shore and some cool tidal pools.
So glad to hear you had a great experience Phil. Would love to host you again!
Perfect base to explore Kodiak
Lovely views, good location, all-in-all a welcoming home and Stephen as a truly great host. This all creates a perfect blend that makes The Catch a perfect base for a several days’ discovery of Kodiak. The four of us just loved it and we do hope we will come back one day...
Great experience !
Instead of writing a lengthy review I will just say when we go back to Kodiak we will be staying at the "catch" and there is not a finer person to deal with than Stephen Foreman!
From our location you are within 1 mile of anything the town has to offer! Drive another mile and you can experience anything the wilderness has to offer. Don't miss our amazing visitor center, museums, and charter services for hunting and fishing!
