PRIVACY AND STUNNING VIEW AT THE ALASKAN COTTAGE

Homer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-8)

PRIVACY! This home is located on almost 6 acres of land, giving you the privacy and peace that you have come to Alaska for. It is conveniently located in the city limits of Homer and is only 3 to 4 miles from the city center. The house is located on a bluff that overlooks emerald lakes and the beaches of Kachemak Bay just below.

You can hear the murmur of the ocean from the porch and watch eagles soaring on the updrafts overhead. Before you stretches the striking visual panorama of Kachemak Bay, Cook Inlet, the Kenai mountains and the volcanoes of the Alaska Range.

This newly remodeled house has a wall of windows to take full advantage of the view and thoughtfully placed window treatments to shut out the midnight sun for those not used to our long daylight hours at bedtime. There is an access ramp to the house and the entire lower floor is handicapped accessible. Spend the afternoon on the large deck and grill your fish for a fresh Alaskan dinner. This house is a truly comfortable residence with all of the conveniences of home.

We are both long time Alaskans who discovered all the amazing things about Homer and have made it our home. We love to fish, hike, bird-watch and kayak and living in Homer has made these activities available right out our door. We share our local knowledge with our visitors and especially love to share our Alaska.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

The amazing thing about this property is the privacy and the view. The most frequent comment I get from our guests is how greatly their expectations of the cottage were exceeded when they walk through the door.

My favorite feature of the house is watching the antics of the big birds playing stick-drop and aero-bomber with each other on breezy days.

The house has a beautiful view across the water, not really obvious in the photos. But the water is very far away! Take binoculars. It's very isolated, clean. We were very comfortable. You will need a car to get to Homer.

What a wonderful time we had in Homer at your Alaskan Cottage

Pat, Steve and I had been on a birding field trip for 10 days. We wanted some extra time in Alaska where we could do things at a slower pace and just appreciate the setting, as well as the flora and fauna. Holly and Rex's Alaskan Cottage certainly fit the bill. Situated on a bluff, the cottage has beautiful views and lots of birds flying by. The cottage sits on a lovely setting and Homer is a wonderful place to visit. We were very comfortable with the accommodations and hope to return for the Shorebird Festival in a subsequent year.

We will return
all the best,
Susie, Steve and Pat

wonderfully secluded, but easy access off the stirling highway. we found your cottage self sustained and thoughtfully outfitted in one of the most spectacular settings i have been in. wildlife,volcano and astronomy viewing from the cottage and it's decks are beautiful. we found many family activities to pursue in homer, from fishing, kayaking, sea planing and horseback riding. it felt like a fabulous home away from home, and accommodated us all comfortably. we thank you for your wonderful hospitality/service! we hope to return for a repeat performance, joanne and kids
