Homer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

A custom 1700 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath chalet style home located 2.5 miles on Homer’s famous East Hill road, known for its fantastic views of Homer. The house is situated on 3.5 private acres, surrounded by wildflowers and local birch, alder and spruce.

This vacation rental sits along scenic bench land overlooking Homer, considered by many as one of the nicest spots in the Homer area. The location is superb with views of Kachemak Bay, mountains, glaciers and just minutes away, the world famous Homer Spit. Located about 700 feet above sea level, this three and one half acre, south facing location catches all the warmth and long glorious sun our endless summer days offer. While enjoying your stay at Overlook Guest House, you will often see different wildlife species including moose, eagles, hawks, pheasant and an occasional black bear or coyote.

The friendly design is perfect for friends and family. A master bedroom and bath is located on the main floor with master walk-in closet and jetted tub for two. An efficient full kitchen has all the amenities including microwave, dishwasher and breakfast bar. The main floor also has a washer/dryer room with adjacent ½ bath. A dining area and living room with fireplace, appointed with comfortable leather furniture, makes this just the ticket for an active or relaxing vacation. A small deck is accessed from the living room with BBQ and chairs.

New for 2014! New leather furniture in the living room and blackout shades for all the bedrooms!

Upstairs are two full bedrooms, one with 3 twin beds (or 1 King and 1 twin) and the other is two twin beds (or 1 King) and additional full bath (shared).

About The Owner

Patrick and I (Dawn) have lived in the beautiful town of Homer for 25 years. We came up to work in our 20's and never left! Neither of us had ever lived by the ocean growing up but once we saw the beauty of Kachemak Bay, the glaciers and mountains; we were here to stay! The small town community with it's abundance of wildlife, green space and friendly people has been the perfect place to raise our children and start our own businesses. We are an outdoors family--our free time is spent fishing and camping in the summer and skating and skiing in the winter. This area truly has everything that we enjoy. We hope our guests can experience Homer and have the vacation of their dreams!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Homer

Large, private acreage on exclusive East Hill rarely comes on the market in Homer; so when this came around, we just had to buy it! The Overlook Guest House is aptly named as it 'overlooks' Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit with good views of Eldridge Passage and Yukon Island. The area here on the hill is really nice as it does not get windy and is very sunny. Its proximity to town is good, just a quick 5 minutes. Just wait till you see the views going down East Hill into Homer, really spectacular!

What makes this house unique

I so enjoy the wildflowers that grow in profusion around the house, wild roses thrive on the hillsides here. Often when we are here, there is moose in the yard or occasionally I will see the neighborhood porcupine waddling up from the nearby gulley. It is very peaceful and private; we really enjoy this house!

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5
Just a few minutes from town, this beautiful condo was private and very affordable. We stayed only 1 night but will plan to stay again. Beautiful view of the Homer Spit and all the mountains surrounding the Kachemak Bay, this place was perfect.

The Schneider's were the perfect hosts. They met us as we arrived, gave us Overview property, and then left us alone to enjoy the place. The house is very well maintained and is supplied with everything one needs. The view from the front windows is outstanding! I would book this place again in a heartbeat. Thank you again, George Billerman

My husband and I took my cousin's family from Hunington Beach to the "overlook house" in Homer and they fell in love with Alaska. It was spacious, clean, and quiet. We enjoyed a few days of sight seeing and relaxing. I would highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Home and View!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 3 night stay in late July. The view of Homer & the Spit can't be beat. The bedrooms were comfortable & private. It was nice to have a washer & dryer. We bought fresh halibut and grilled it on the deck on the gas grill. Perfection! Would definitely recommend this rental!

This house met all of our expectations. The views are fantastic. The house is very clean and in great condition. The kitchen is fully equipped. Very quiet, and you may get a wandering moose thrown in as a bonus.
