NAMASTAY ~SPECTACULAR VIEWS IN SCENIC, CONVENIENT LOCATION

Homer House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

NamaStay invites you to step inside, unwind and take in the panoramic views of this roomy and comfortable home away from home. Surrounded by stunning Kachemak Bay and its glacier-studded mountains, NamaStay is located in arguably one of the most scenic areas of Homer, yet we are a convenient 6 miles from downtown. Within minutes you can access Homer's art galleries, shopping centers, and fine restaurants-- or head to the famous Homer Spit for myriad fishing and recreational opportunities.

This 1400 sq. foot chalet-style Alaskan home is sunny, stylish and spacious. Situated on just over an acre of land, NamaStay is ideal for friends, couples and families, and can accommodate 2 to 6 people.

The ample living room boasts vaulted ceilings and a wall of south-facing windows to capture the light and warmth of our long summer days. A dining area is nestled into the living room, providing an intimate space to celebrate food with family and friends. Our deck is fully equipped with a propane BBQ grill, picnic table and lounge chairs, and is the perfect place to enjoy your fresh catch, some Homer-grown veggies or a locally brewed beer.

The well-appointed kitchen has everything you need and more to prepare gourmet meals during your stay. A small table and custom crafted breakfast bar provide spaces to indulge and take in spectacular views.

The master bedroom includes a queen size bed, walk in closet, 8 drawer dresser and full bathroom. The en suite bathroom features a handcrafted stained glass countertop with stainless steel sink. Light-canceling shades offer a reprieve from the midnight sun and alluring views when you're ready to daydream about what adventures await you.

The second bedroom hosts 2 new twin beds, situated opposite each other in a cozy loft bedroom, with plenty of closet space and a luggage rack. Distinctive angles and newly installed birch flooring transform this modest space into an inviting enclave. An additional sleeping space containing a fold-down sofa bed is available on the first floor in a recessed area off the living room. There's a small closet in this area for storing luggage and hanging clothing items, as well as a 3/4 bath just steps away. The downstairs bathroom's unique tile and beach rock floors, sink top and backsplash are noteworthy design features.

An expansive yard hosts guests such as resident moose, eagles, hawks and pheasant; sandhill cranes and other migratory birds also frequent the wide open fields this region is known for. A lovely 2 mile walking trail is accessed in either direction from NamaStay, an easy and relaxing way to explore the neighborhood and all the while be dazzled by breathtaking views.

NamaStay provides all the comforts of home, with an intimate setting in a superb and convenient location. Make NamaStay your home base for your next Alaskan adventure and create unforgettable memories that will leave you beckoning for more.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The view is great and all of your recommendations were amazing. We hiked, fished for halibut and enjoyed the stores and places on the spit. The kids enjoyed Netflix and the parents enjoyed sitting on the deck. The rooms are amazing and very well furnished. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others. Thank you so much for letting us stay here, it is a very nice place.

12 years ago, I ventured to Homer, Alaska on a quest to explore the Last Frontier. I was young, eager and fresh out of college searching for a place to call home and plant my feet for awhile. Being a sun-loving surfer chick, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that a place like Alaska could capture my attention for long, or steal my heart. It did. To my amazement, it wasn't just the breathtaking scenery and jaw-dropping views that Homer offered that kept me yearning for more - it was the combination of the remarkable natural beauty with its outstanding community. Having grown up in the suburbs of Pennsylvania, I had never experienced true community the way that I did upon arriving at the end of the road. Since that time, I have adapted my lifestyle in order to maintain a home-base here. As a result of this alternative lifestyle, I have been able to live out many dreams - one of which has been my passion for traveling. The long, dark winter months beckon me to throw some meager belongings into a backpack and hit the jet stream. My travels include destinations such as Africa, India, Colombia, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico. And my list is still long. It is my own passion for traveling combined with my love for Homer, Alaska that made me decide to open up my home to other travelers. Besides my love for exploring foreign lands, I also love to garden, hike, cook, and spend time with my beloved dog, Rufus.

NamaStay is located in a spectacularly scenic area of Homer just 6 miles from downtown and the Homer Spit. The proximity to town puts you within 10 minutes of Homer's art galleries and great restaurants, as well as heading out on a fishing charter or kayak trip for the day. The residential neighborhood provides great opportunities for wildlife viewing while relaxing on the deck grilling up your fresh catch of the day. There's also great walking/hiking just out your doorstep.

PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX IN COMFORT

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 2 couples thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Namastay. We spent most of our day time at Home Spit area and it was nice to come back to a q-u-i-e-t home to unwind and get a good night's sleep. The living room was especially comfortable. All was as described with added bonus of spectacular views and a morning visit by mom moose and babe. Would stay here again! Thanks for sharing your home!

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT VIEWS!

  • 4 of 5
The house is very nice, there is everything needed in the kitchen, and above all, the view is fantastic!
Homer is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. We went fishing for halibut (If you are just an amateur /beginner like me, I recommend the half day trip with Rainbow charters) and enjoyed it a lot. Also, a sea kayaking tour is a must to get close to wildlife (especially sea otters and harbor seals).

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. BEYOND OUR EXPECTATIONS.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Jaime's home. She had the home wonderfully decorated, impeccably clean, clean towels in the bathrooms and on the beds, clean everything! The kitchen was kindly stocked with necessities and the barbeque on the back deck was great. The view was spectacular. Did not want to leave! Very nice, quiet setting with a great hike uphill! Close enough to the spit to go back and forth and to see from the deck. We enjoyed the pregnant Momma Moose that frequented the yard quietly and quickly. The accommodations were perfect four our family of 6. My 5 year old grandson loved the nice green yard and plenty of room to run around and walk. Just a beautiful, warm, friendly atmosphere. This was our first time renting a vacation home and it could not have gone better. Jaime is a wonderful hostess and we had a nice visit. I hope everyone who stays there takes very good care of her home, so it will be there again when we come back! Thanks, again, Jaime, from the Winters Family from Montana.

OUR STAY AT NAMASTAY

  • 5 of 5
We were so pleased to find NamaStay to be exactly what we were hoping for. It had a cabin feel, yet with all modern amenities and a bright cheery decor. Everything was spotlessly clean and there was plenty of space inside and out. The bay and glacier views were spectacular, as was the garden which was in full bloom. The location is far enough out of town to be quiet, yet close enough to be handy. Will certainly reserve again the next time we are in Homer. Thanks so much for sharing your home.

BREATHTAKING VIEW

  • 5 of 5
The view from the living room and deck of the water and mountains was unbelieveable! Very quiet neighborhood. House was well kept. Just a note for those with any form of handicap, the stairs to 2nd floor are narrow and steps a bit difficult. Enjoyed netflix,
Our party of 4 enjoyed the house and Homer.
