Homer Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 3)

Welcome! We invite you to bring your family and friends to this spectacular destination! Here you can watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other! Our rustic 12' x 16' rental cabins, located on MacDonald Spit, are only steps away from the beach and waterfront of Kasitsna and Kachemak Bays. Each cabin, surrounded by spruce and alder, offer spectacular views of the bays, islands, and snow-capped mountains with out standing in their shade. Built by Alaskan pioneers, the Pioneer Cabin faces Kasitsna Bay and glows in the morning sunrise. The Cannery Cabin, built by Kristi and Brad, faces Kachemak Bay and catches the evening sunsets. Both cabins are equipped with full-sized bed and extra sleeping cot, full kitchens with running water, microwave, small fridge, electric heat, shower, and toilet. We provide utensils, pots and pans, towels and linens, and WIFI. Each cabin site includes picnic table, BBQ with propane, Adirondack chairs, clam rakes and buckets. Renters may use our fish cleaning table, freezer space, and rowboat. Kayaks for rent through Mako's water taxi. Whether you come to relax or play, enjoy an evening beach fire as the sun sets at 11:30 at night!

About Kristi McLean

Your hosts, Kristi McLean and Brad Langvardt, are true Alaskans having spent most of their adult lives working and enjoying the great Alaska outdoors. Kristi, a life long Alaskan, was raised in a log cabin by her pioneer parents. By the age of 20, she had already coached skating and skiing, commercial fished, and was running her own boat and crew. Commercial fishing for salmon, halibut, crab, and herring have take her throughout Alaska's waters. A self-taught artist, working primarily in clay, she spends her free time sculpting in the new Alaska studio. Brad arrived in Alaska as a teenager, found work with a big-game guide, and at 21 became a registered guide. He started his own guiding business and for over 20 years guided hunters and fishermen from all over the globe. Being a pilot for over 40 years, he has been able to see most of Alaska from his plane. In addition Brad builds wood skiffs and drift boat here in his work shop.

Kristi McLean purchased this cabin in 1965

Why Kristi McLean chose Homer

The inspirational wonder of Alaska's marine environment is right outside your cabin door.

What makes this cabin unique

The waters of Kachemak Bay are some of the richest in the world for sea life, offering visitors an unforgettable experience. Here you will see bald eagles and sea otters from your doorstep. The unique geology of the area, has produced a fantastic setting for beach combing, tide pooling (best at minus tides), fishing and wild life. Watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I brought our 3 kids age 7-13 to the cabin. This was the best trip we have ever been on! Super clean cabin, amazing views, we would walk out of the cabin and the ocean was right there. This was an experience we will treasure the rest of our lives. There were some low tides during our stay and we had a great time tide pooling, the kids still talk about all of the sea life they found. We saw a sea lion, tons of otters, whales, and again amazing views. Our kids were so busy exploring and tide pooling they never thought to pick up an electronic device. If your looking for a relaxing vacation or an adventure, this is the place to come, this cabin was more than I ever imagined Alaska would be

Authentic, rustic cabin with updated amenities including wifi. No matter which way I looked I was surrounded by the most beautiful scenery I've ever seen...just incredible. We went for morning walks along the beach and saw eagles in the trees, boat rides in front of the cabin to see otter playing and a nearby ride into the cute little town of Seldovia. In the evening we sat on the porch with a glass of wine and took in the beauty and peacefulness. The owner said she grew up on the property and was able to answer all our questions about the area. If you're looking for a quiet, authentic Alaskan experience this is it! I'll definitely be returning.

My wife and I went here for our first wedding anniversary. The accommodations are rustic(that's how we like it) but well maintained and have running water, electricity and wifi! The owner lives on the property but we found we could see as much or as little of her as we wanted. Lots of outdoor activities and a prime location to take off on a beach walk or a boat ride. It's a short ride to downtown Seldovia where we had an excellent lunch and then ate wild strawberries and took in the beauty of the area. Our dog had a blast chasing sticks on the beach and chasing the salmon jumping in the water. It was so much fun I almost want to leave a bad review so that no one else knows about it! Can't wait to go back!

An Unforgettable Experience

  • 5 of 5
Alaska now has a very special place in my heart, and this place really did it. Staying in Between Beaches is so much more than an accommodation - it is truly an unforgettable experience. The area lives up to the saying, "where the road ends, Alaska begins" The cabin holds original pieces from early 1900s when it was built, the stove, many of the dishes, and interesting antiquities. At the same time, modern amenities like the beds accommodated my husband, 2 year old daughter and myself comfortably. The photos accurately reflect the place and it was well equipped with amenities. We spent our 5 days relaxing on either of the two beaches (both literally a few steps away), exploring around the area, kayaking, and visiting Seldovia - charming little town about 15 minutes away. Most of all, it was wonderful to let my toddler roam around everywhere without being worried. It is a very safe environment with so much for kids to do. The owner, Kristi, was kind, fun, and very accommodating, as were her neighbors. We thank them all for making our stay unforgettable! I would just recommend others to bring rubber boots esp. for children as they are not sold in Seldovia - my daughter ran around in wet shoes most of the time - and whatever provisions you will be needing from Homer before taking the water taxi to the cabin. There are no stores or restaurants within walking distance. Overall, I would strongly recommend this place!

Between Beaches, one of Alaska's most beautiful destinations, is the ideal location for vacationing singles, couples, and families. Just as the name states; Between Beaches is situated on MacDonald Spit, a mile long finger of ancient glacier moraine, with beach frontage on Kasitsna Bay and Kachemak Bay. Located 13 miles SW of Homer and 8 miles NE of historic Seldovia, Between Beaches is easily reached by water taxi from the Homer boat harbor, the State ferry Tustumena to Seldovia, or a short airplane ride to the Seldovia airport. Arrivals in Seldovia will require a short taxi and walk.
