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.

About Holly Van Pelt
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.
Holly Van Pelt purchased this house in 2003
Why Holly Van Pelt chose Homer
Some of the best things 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.
What makes this house unique
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for letting us stay for the weekend. We loved it. We don't want to leave. It is so quiet and the morning is beautiful and even more beautiful is sunset. It was sooo pretty. We just sat and watched it till it turned night.
