Quiet and Secluded Cabin in an Amazing Location

  • 5 of 5
We booked the cabin with confidence after reading all the positive reviews on VRBO site. The view is so spectacular in all directions. It was cold, rainy and cloudy during the 3 short days we were there, but we enjoyed every minutes spent in Nancy's lovely cabin. The drive to town is 13 miles away with delay because of road repair, but we did not mind the distance and the scenery made those trips so pleasant. If you are looking for a clean, spacious, convenient, quiet, secluded, romantic, scenic place to stay in Homer, this is the place. Look no further. The washer and dryer were very appreciated since we were at the end of our trip. Highly recommended! Wish we did not have to leave.

Excellent lodging in Homer

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in Homer at Walkabout Cottage. Everything was exactly as advertised and met our needs. Nancy was efficient and professional to deal with - we felt we got value and would return to stay here in a heartbeat. All the amenities were there and the view is beyond wonderful. The property is 13 miles out of town; we felt this to be a positive attribute!

The cabin and the view were the best EVER!! The owner made sure that the cabin was fully stocked with EVERYTHING you can imagine - games, tools, linens, guide books, reading, batteries, sewing kits, repair kits, coloring books for kids, binoculars, even sleep masks!! This place is better than my home!!!!! Don't look further - this place is a MUST for anyone visiting Homer, Alaska.

You will not find a better view!

Great view of the bay and glaciers looking back at you. Lots of windows, & just opening the blinds will heat the house. Recommend AJ's Old Town Steakhouse in town for a great dinner and better atmosphere. We will be back.

Our perfect vision of an Alaskan stay come true.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed in Denali, Anchorage, and Seward and this was our favorite lodging. Fantastic views, snow capped mountains, bay, flowers and just listening to nature. Nancy emailed explicit directions prior to our departure. Property was well kept, with lots of information on what to do if anything occurred. Only down side was construction and pilot car needed to navigate East End Road. Would highly recommend this property.

We also enjoyed the Emerald Air Bear Tour with Craig and Sara, and hiking to Glacier Lake.

Really enjoyed this Property.

  • 5 of 5
This was an incredibly comfortable property with a million dollar view. It is remote and private and just what we were looking for. A power outage made things a little chilly for a few hours shortly after we arrived, but it was well worth sticking it out. Comes complete with a Moose in the back yard. We would return in a heart beat. Thank you for sharing your home with us. PS Loved the books. You have all the good ones!

Walkabout cottage, located just 13 miles east of the town of Homer, Alaska, is on the bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay and the Portlock and Dixon glaciers. Homer, Alaska, has been pegged the 'halibut capital of the world' and 'the Shangri-la' of Alaska. While in Homer, you can enjoy fishing for halibut or salmon on fish charters out in Kachemak Bay and Cook Inlet, or take a quick water taxi or sea kayak trip across Kachemak Bay to the villages of Seldovia or Halibut Cove. The Kachemak Bay area is home to many art galleries featuring lthe work of local and Native Alaskan artists and craftspersons, as well as opportunities for kayaking, hiking, biking, bird watching, tide pooling, and more. After a busy day exploring, come back to Walkabout Cottage and enjoy a beverage on the front deck ,a long walk through wildflower fields, or choose a book from the owner's library.
