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).

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

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!

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 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!

Great Views

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.

Beautiful home! Relaxing, plenty of space and WONDERFUL VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
We spent 3 nights in the Overlook home. It was a very comfortable home with plenty of space for a large family. We LOVED the beautiful view of the Homer Spit and mountains. The kitchen was well equipped and it was nice to be able to do a couple loads of laundry.
The owners were great and were able to accommodate a large group. We had a great time. I highly recommend this home. You will not be disappointed.

Quiet, Clean and Very Good Location with Excellent Views

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a 6 night stay(5 straight days of "Gorilla" fishing) at the Overlook and it was better than expected. The pictures just do not do justice to the property. The views of the bay and Homer Spit with the mountains beyond are breathtaking. The location is great with just a ten to fifteen minute trip to the Spit to board the charter boats. The house is well equipped for a VRBO - all the necessary appliances and utensils are available to make the stay comfortable for those who want to cook (including gas grill on the deck). It was very clean and I found the king size bed very comfortable (may have been contributed to by the fact that I was dead tired after 12 hours of fishing). Dawn leaves good instructions on expectations of what to do prior to leaving the property. We only saw Pat one evening when he came by to change over the water supply. It was a totally hassle free stay and I would recommend it to anyone that wants a quality stay in Homer. We plan on returning next year.

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from staying 4 nights at this home. It is the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the beauty of the Homer area. The views from the living room windows are breathtaking. The house was immaculate and contained everything we needed. A nice perk to have a washer/dryer for our use. Kitchen was well equipped. We fished every day and I would say it took about 15 minutes to get to the Spit and our fishing charter. A great place to stay. Thanks.
