About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Homer Alaska is located on the South end of the Kenai Peninsula on Kachemak Bay and it is one of the jewels of the Kenai Peninsula. It is a very picturesque setting. Whether you look to the East or to the West, the view can be breathtaking.

Alaska is on the list for many to visit and sometimes it can be troubling to make the decision on where to stay. There are hundreds of Bed & Breakfast's to stay in, numerous hotels and vacation rentals to choose from. Why choose R&R; because it is as close to home as you can get while being on the road. We offer privacy, real peace and quiet; which that is hard to find now a day's, and a very convenient location when it comes to activities that you might partake in while you are visiting.

We are 3.5 miles from the center of town and another 4.5 miles to the Harbor. If you just wanted to take a hike after waking up, without getting in your car, our property abuts to some of the best hiking trails Homer has to offer. Whether you want to walk one mile or five miles, all you need are your hiking boots.

Most visitors want to fish while they are in Homer and although we do not offer any guided services, we have been living in the community since 1978 and operated charter boats until the late 1980's. This gives us the opportunity to point you in the direction you want to go without a fee.

After recreating, you will want to eat and if you want to come home and put your fresh caught fish on the grill, you can at R&R. All the amenities are provided to do just that. But if you want to dine out, my wife works at one of the finest eateries in town and has been in the service industry for 19 years, so we know where the good food is.

We have tried to make R&R affordable for our visitors, especially the ones that want to stay for awhile. Our prices might seem to be low, but that doesn't reflect the condition of the accommodations. It reflects our philosophy with travel. It's a price that we wouldn't mind paying if we were traveling, and it's always nice to be pleasantly surprised.

R&R is just perfect for some. We are not the fancy high end resort with a million dollar view. We are simply a quiet comfortable home away from home. I can't ever recall having one of our visitors complain about the place. So if you are coming to the Great Land and visiting Homer, please consider R&R for your stay.

About Elizabeth Pepper

R&R was built for Mother Mary and it is there that she enjoyed the last of her days relaxing and entertaining family and friends. It was her wish to share this with others and that is why R&R is the place to relax and enjoy the quiet peaceful surroundings in a wonderful Alaskan environment.

Billy first came to Homer Alaska from Oahu Hawaii on a NOAA ship as a volunteer back in the late 70's only to fall in love with Homer. He started his dream by building a two story log home in The Last Great Frontier that he and Liz call home to this day. Together they have built a life full of love, family, and friends from hard work and living the Alaskan Dream.

Both have been in the hospitality industry whether it is from Billy starting as a charter captain in the late 70's or from Liz working as a waitress for over 20 years at some of the finest restaurants in Homer. We took those talents and combined them with Mary's love of people and have built R&R for a place for visitors to enjoy.

Elizabeth Pepper purchased this apartment in 1982

It's a piece of Heaven!

What makes this apartment unique

For us, it's the place where you can light the sauna, go skiing on 36K of groomed trails, come back from a good ski and have a soothing steam bath all without ever having to get in the car. What more could you ask for? Whether it's hiking or skiing, it's right there in your back yard.

Alaska Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 nights, it was perfect. The apartment was equipped with everything, washer/dryer, tv and a complete kitchen. We cooked our dinners here with the grill outside and it was perfect. I would stay here again, when I come back.

Great stay at this hidden gem in Homer!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean and well appointed with everything you need to enjoy your time at the "end of the road". This private setting and inviting home calls you to enjoy and relax, which is exactly what we did. There were 3 of us and at no time did we feel on top of one another. One can feel the appreciation the owners have of their community and home. Do recommend that you check this place out!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little apartment above a garage. There's plenty of room and the kitchen was well stocked with everything you need for preparing meals. There's also books and games and the wifi is great. Liz is a great hostess and Homer is a beautiful place to visit!

Peace in the country in Homer, AK

  • 5 of 5

A hidden gem on the west side of town that offers full kitchen and fully stocked one bedroom . Lovely property with a welcoming hostess Liz. It is about a five minute drive into the city where one will find all types of attractions and restaurants. Our daughter Annie ( who lives in Homer during the Summer) was our local guide to the area... and Liz supplemented by having a plethora of guides and books at our disposal. Great civilized way to see Homer... (have WIFI and indoor plumbing ..unlike our daughter's "dry cabin" UGH! Will stay at the R & R again!

Great Getaway in Homer AK!!

  • 5 of 5

Nicely nestled in the woods but close enough for area attractions and local eateries. Lot's of fishing to be had way at the end, as far as you can go!! Visit Skyline Drive as well! Lot's of picture taking! Very relaxing while staying at R & R! Saw momma moose and her twin babies while visiting. Very friendly host, Liz! We wanted for nothing!

While visiting we were downtown and ate at "Le Truck" ~ I never realized what a great experience eating from a lunch truck could be! If they are in the area, check them out! You won't be disappointed! Would definitely stay here again!

We are located in The Halibut Fishing Capital of the world which for those guests who enjoy fishing, is a dream come true. Not only can you fish for Halibut, Rockfish, Cod and Dolly Varden but you can also try for Salmon if you time it right. R&R is nestled in a quiet serene subdivision surrounded by spruce trees and an abundance of wildlife. We are also located right next door to the Homestead Trail which offers both summer hiking and winter cross country skiing and 3 miles from the Diamond Creek Trial that goes down to the beach. Both trails provide plenty of opportunities for sightings of wildlife and birds for those folks who enjoy getting outside and being one with Mother Nature.
