At the end of the highway, across Kachemak Bay in south-central Alaska, lies a small community with a big heart: Seldovia.

Nestled between bays and mountains, the beauty is matched only by the spirit of our little city.

Seldovia provides the opportunity for safe and tranquil living in a setting just off the road system.

It’s removed enough to provide rural beauty and a low-key environment, yet just a quick flight or ferry ride across the bay to Homer and its population center of thousands.

Seldovia provides many amenities perfect for singles, couples, families or retirees including:

  • A safe and healthy environment, where children can enjoy independence in a way not possible in big cities. We are a community of people who look out for one another. Seldovia is a safe-haven for raising children.
  • Excellent school facilities and teacher-to-student ratio with plenty of room to accommodate increased numbers of students. Our school features a swimming pool, large gym and an exceptional vocational shop facility.
  • A sizable and convenient harbor close to the big fishing grounds. Seldovia’s harbor is almost always ice-free year-round, and is available at very reasonable rates. The harbor recently received many upgrades and improvements.
  • A strong Fire and EMS Volunteer department along with a medical clinic that provides a variety of services, from traditional medical and dental appointments to natural wellness approaches such as massage, acupuncture and more.
  • Rich cultural history. Seldovia Village Tribe maintains a museum and visitor center, as well as a conference center, a passenger ferry and provides numerous educational and recreational programs for all members of the Seldovia community.
  • Excellent broadband Internet connection.

“As a flying family, we love the accessibility of the airport!  It is just a short 15 minute flight from Homer or an hour and a half in our little commuter airplane from Anchorage. There are so many activities throughout the year for the entire family. Seldovia is the best piece of paradise we have invested in with our family.” - Yvette, Alaska - view more testimonials
