Bayview Vacation Home in Homer, Alaska invites you to experience unobstructed panoramic view. It sits atop a hillside overlooking downtown, Beluga Lake, Homer airport, Kachemak Bay, the Spit, Kenai Mountains and beautiful glaciers. The view from our home is very colorful, inspiring and ever-changing. Snow-capped mountains, green forests, glowing yellow meadows during sunset, and a sea of clouds along the blue bay are just some of the stunning views you can see during the day. At night, you can see the street lights sparkling on the Spit and the town. Even during rainy days, you will enjoy enchanting views of reflecting water droplets.

Our home was custom built in 2003 and faces nearly one acre of wild flower gardens. The house has a living area of 3,200 square feet, divided into upper and lower levels. In the upper level, the living room has vaulted high ceilings and huge panoramic windows built into the entire front wall. The windows allow you to soak in the views of the curved Spit, mountains and gleaming glaciers formed across the bay.

The master bedroom has one queen bed and one full bathroom equipped with a Jacuzzi bathtub. You can walk to the deck from the master bedroom or just lie down on the bed to enjoy the beautiful view.

The second bedroom has one queen size bed and one window. There is also one sofa bed for extra visitors and another bathroom near the entrance. Visitors sleeping on the sofa bed will feel like they are being embraced by the mountains in the dimming sunset. The spacious kitchen and dining area has a sliding door which leads to the deck. Additionally, the upper level is equipped with a washer and dryer for your convenience.

For privacy, a separate entrance deck leads to the lower level. There is also an indoor stairway leading to the lower level. The lower level has a living room with big windows overlooking the view and it contains two big bedrooms. One room has one queen-size bed and the other has two full-size beds. Both rooms have large windows to view the Spit and Kenai mountains. The lower level kitchen and dining area was newly built in 2008. The kitchens in each level are well equipped with all the necessary amenities for you to enjoy cooking and dining.

We purchased this lovely home in 2008 for our retirement and furnished it with the finest new furniture for your comfort. We also provided two 42” wide-screen HDTV, high speed internet, and cable/satellite TV for your entertainment. Our home sits on a private street where you can enjoy the serene wilderness, but easily get to town and the Spit within a few minutes drive.

Our house is the best for you to enjoy your vacation in Homer. Here are the features which you can not find from other places.

* Million-dollor's panoramic view, overlooking the Spit and Kachemak bay.

* A few minutes to the town, restaurants, Spit and etc.

* Two big living rooms and two complete kitchens and dining areas. Very spacious.

* Comparable rate but more luxurious in prestigious location .

Guestbook comments from the owner


Thank you so much for the use of your beautiful home! The wedding was wonderful. We had sunny weather, and an outdoor ceremony on the deck, followed by a good old Alaskan fish fry. Everyone loved the vacation home, and had only great things to say about our choice in booking.

I'm still collecting the wedding photos, but I will definitely send you some very soon! Just wanted to say "Thank you." It really was very picturesque and perfect.

Although the house was beautiful, the owner was not accommodating.

The dryer did not work and we did not receive a discount. Our travel plans changed and the owner did not allow us to change our reservation so we payed for a night that we were not there for.

We were disappointed with the owner's inflexibility.

Owner's Response: We run our vacation rental based on the Rental Agreement. There was no cash refund for the last minute's schedule change. The best we can do was to give the credit for your next visit. Regarding with the dryer, the dryer broke down unexpectedly. we called the appliance technician right away but the part could not arrive during your stay. The best we can do is to reimburse the laundry fee and maybe one bottle of wine for your in-convenience if you like it. You insisted on the large amount of cash refund, which is beyond the reasonable expectation. We doubt any business owner would do that.

Memories made here !

  • 5 of 5

This home provides a panoramic view of the Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit, with a background of the mountains and the Grewingk Glacier. It is very serene setting as you relax on the deck and gaze out at the expanse of the Alaskan terrain. To top it off, a bald eagle or two will fly by as you sit and eat dinner ! You will need a vehicle, but it is an excellent base for activities in the area such as deep sea fishing, flights to bear country in Katmai National Park, and hiking across the bay in Kachemak State Park. The home is large enough to be comfortable for large and small families alike, with plenty of amenities for cooking if you would like. Thanks for a great vacation Robin and Yen-Li !

Breathtaking Views, Immaculate Property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 (adult "kids") who were so grateful for the spaciousness of this home away from home. We've rented other vacation homes before, this one is new, clean, high quality and thoroughly well-appointed from the kitchen & dining areas, all bathrooms, washer & dryer, decks, all of it made for a highly comfortable stay. The location is spectacular if you want to be close to town but away from it for quiet. The view is even more breathtaking than the photos. Cannot say enough about how much WE LOVED THIS HOUSE! Thank you

Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house. The view is just spectacular and the space was great for our family. Just a few suggestions to improve the place: put some lamps in the rooms so you don't have to turn on the bright overheads (we have a 3-month old baby so were up in the night), equip the kitchen with some serving dishes (platters, bowls) and more kitchen utensils, and talk to the neighbor about their dog doing its business in the driveway. Overall we were really satisfied with our stay and would definitely rent the house again. Thank you!

Best Vacation in Alaska So Far

  • 5 of 5

Every year, we take a boys trip to Alaska. I have to tell you this was the best fishing trip ever. I was very impressed with the amenities this house had to offer. The views alone were worth a million dollars. It was so relaxing to wake up to the beautiful views overlooking the Kachemak Bay. The house was very spacious which allowed us to have privacy in every room. I plan to stay here again next year. Thank you Robin for providing the ultimate Alaskan experience. I highly recommend staying at this property.
