Homer Guest Cottage ~ Stay at Home in Homer

21 Reviews
Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


Kenai Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our guests most frequently remark that the comfort and convenience available at Homer Guest Cottage is like 'being at home'. The owners personally strive to ensure the level of welcoming care you require is met with typical Alaskan friendliness.

The modern, beautifully appointed 2500 sq. ft. home sits on 2.5 landscaped acres and offers both privacy and accessibility in a unique 'close in' setting as well as amenities inviting to families, couples and small groups.

Homer offers one of Alaska's most beautiful natural settings as well as many opportunities to view and enjoy it's flora and fauna, including frequent visiting moose at the cottage.

Come experience Alaska, the Great Land.


From the intersection of the Sterling Highway and Pioneer Avenue coming 'down the hill' into Homer, take Pioneer Ave. east (left) through the central town business area to the four-way flashing red traffic signal at Lake Street.

Continue straight, on East Road 1.9 miles to the cottage- the first driveway to the left past Williams Pl.

Best VBRO experience

  • 5 of 5

I attended a statewide conference and we needed a multi-room space in Homer. This house was beyond expectations!! Every detail from cleanliness to fully stocked kitchen. Tony and Liz were traveling when we arrived, but the caretakers had everything clean and ready for us. This house is just outside of Homer about 5 minutes into town and the hot tub is a perfect way to unwind from your day! Would give it 10 stars if I could...looking forward to returning with family!

Fabulous choice

  • 5 of 5

Homer Cottage was truly a gem of a rental. 5 adults from Wisconsin stayed here for 4 days while we explored Homer and the surrounding area. We have stayed in many VRBOs and I have to say this was by far the nicest and most well equipped house we have ever stayed in. Tony and Liz didn't miss out on a single thing including sharp knives!! Tony couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. I enjoyed all my interactions with him. The house was beautiful, comfortable and extremely well stocked. We enjoyed the hot tub and the fabulous views. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this rental. Thanks Tony

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Homer Cottage is a wonderful vacationn home and a home in the trues sense of the word. We have stayed in many vacation homes and this was by far the best equipped. Tony and Liz are very generous and provide everything anyone could possibly want and then more. This home is large, very comfortable, roomy, on a large and beautifully maintained property and with an unbelievable view of the mountains and water. We are hoping to return soon. Thank-you Tony and Liz VERY much.

Back home to homer

  • 5 of 5

Very nice locotation, beautiful home. I think this was our 8 th trip to Homer in the last nine years and it never dissappoints. The views from your home are spectacular and the moose are everywhere. We had a great trip. One morning after waking up, my brother called into my room saying there were moose just beyond the deck off the kitchen. A short time later I noticed a marker buoy suspended from a tree in your yard was being kicked around by a young calf moose. Unfortunately, by the time I located my camera it was gone. Looking forward to returning, and thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Jim F

Amazing place - good price

  • 5 of 5

This place blew me away. Every detail appears thought out from the huge stacks of tourist guides, to the phenomenal locally roasted coffee, to the extra towels by the door to the hot tub and even the spare emergency rain jackets. Everything is sparkling clean, very well maintained, well thought out, and then there is the view.... I actually can't describe the view, you can see the picture, but that is a bit like having someone tell you what chocolate tastes like. Try this place out just for the view. Except for the one rainy night, we watched gorgeous sunsets reflected onto the bay, the mountains, and the glaciers from the patio.

I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!

Everything about the Homer Guest Cottage is fabulous...the view, the furnishings, the hotub, etc. We were a 3-generation family of 8 ages 9 to 70 celebrating our 50th anniversary in the 50th state. It was the first time for trying VRBO and this was our favorite. It was perfect for us. We booked in Nov. 2013 for our July 2014 trip. Liz and Tony have thought of every need and detail...Wish we could've stayed longer and would love to return.
