Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft bedroom, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Welcome to the Grand View Retreat Chalet overlooking a spectacular view of Kachemak Bay, Cooks Inlet, Dixon Glacier, Portlock Glacier, Grewingk Glacier, and Homer Spit.

This 5,200 sq. ft. luxurious chalet has 5 bedrooms with attached baths, and a cozy loft bedroom with trundle beds. It is very private and is tastefully decorated, has a large gourmet kitchen, a 60” big screen TV, I pod dock, barbeque grill, 4 decks, 2 Jacuzzi tubs and too much more to list. With two very large living rooms and a gigantic loft, all with spectacular views, it is perfect for special occasions such as family reunions.

Most visitors are taken aback from the breathtaking view of the Alaskan Mountains and nearby glaciers, surrounding Ketchmak Bay. At night you can enjoy the beautiful spectacle of light emanating from the nearby Famous Homer Spit.

The Chalet is located 9 miles from town, but is close to nearby shopping, wine tasting, fine dining, art galleries and museums. Animal enthusiasts will enjoy the safe view of nearby Alaskan wildlife that includes bears, otters, moose, eagles, birds, hares, porcupines and other animals indigenous to the area.

Seafood and fishing lovers will have their fill of Alaskan Halibut, varieties of salmon, rock fish, and clams. Overall this property will allow you to enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska with all the comforts of home. Several moose live in the woods surrounding the house and it is very common to see more than one moose from the balcony. They really love the clover right under the balcony.

I promise you just one thing. When it is time to go home, you will not want to leave. But then, you can always come again next year.

Additional amenities: satellite TV, assortment of DVDs and board games, off street parking for 10 vehicles.

Why Prabha Mani chose Kenai Peninsula

Wonderful place for family re unions special anniversaries and landmark birthdays. it is like a home away from your home.

We love fish and fishing so bought this property. Our family gets together here once a year and a spacious home for all including our grand children. We just fell in love with this Chalet.

What makes this house unique

The Views from the living room having our cup of coffee or vine in the evenings. Also the moose family that comes grazing by summer time behind this chalet lovely to watch them from the patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

all was very good.The house was nice and well equipped. I think the grill is old, more than it was dirty.

But everything else was fine, worked well and we enjoyed it.The views are tremendous.

Family Reunion of a lifetime!!!

  • 5 of 5

After 10 years of not all being together we decided to plan a family reunion in Homer, Alaska. This property was perfect for us! Incredible views, lots of visiting moose. We spent lots of time cooking, playing games, reading, visiting. This chalet had everything we needed. Very comfortable; the host thought of everything vacationing families would need! I highly recommend staying here! Worth every penny!!!

The house was perfect for our family stay in Homer. It is lovely but also very comfortable. Would not hesitate to rent it again if the occasion arises.

GrandView Is Truly A Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We visited Alaska for the first time and chose Homer somewhat because of the availability of the GrandView Retreat. GrandView gave our group of three families all of the space we needed to be together or to have some privacy. I can't say enough about the view. Can only confirm what others have said - it's spectacular. And yes, moose in the yard every day. GrandView is a short drive from Homer but very easy to find. It has a large kitchen, modern appliances and very comfortable furnishings. There is no a/c but the cool breeze takes care of that. I would highly recommend GrandView

This is a wonderful home for a large group- we had three familes and included 4 chidren

  • 5 of 5

From the moment my entire family - my children and grandchildren- walked up the stairs and marveled in the spectacular view, we had a delightful time. The grandkids loved to play in the upper level overlooking the main floor. And we all spend many hours on the deck enjoying the quiet and views of the bay and the mountains and glaciers beyond, the sunsets - and yes moose strolled by one evening to entertain us.

The two master suites and the lower level bedroom worked wonderfully for the three couples, plus all the grandkids had plenty of space as well.

The kitchen and dining area were perfect for a large group- for eating breakfast together, a snack, or playing cards. The owners have done a fantastic job designing and outfitting this home. it has it all. Loved it!!!

Fabulous Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! You can easily view 5 separate glacial fields from the main balcony and the views of Katchemak Bay just can't be beat! The photos are accurate depictions of the property including nightly visits from 2 female moose including one with calf. We stayed here with two other couples (6 total) and the layout of the home easily afforded everyone their own space. The only negative comment we have is that the water is from underground wells and the smell as a result in the bathrooms was pretty overpowering especially in the MB downstairs. The owners have installed a water filtration system in the refrigerator so drinking tasty drinking water isn't a problem, just the stench in the bathrooms from the well water in the toilets and faucets. Upon reflection we probably should have contacted the owner but in the grand scheme of things the well water stench was a non-issue given the location of this beautiful property and the space and furnishings provided by the owners. They really have tried to provide a rental property that meets all the needs one could ask for while on vacation. This property is a real gem and the owners were very easy to work with. We would very much rent this property again if we decide to return to Homer, Alaska as we can't say enough about what a great time was enjoyed by all in this very beautiful home on a very scenic piece of property just outside Homer.
