Overview

Kenai Peninsula House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

A custom 1700 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath chalet style home located 2.5 miles on Homer’s famous East Hill road, known for its fantastic views of Homer. The house is situated on 3.5 private acres, surrounded by wildflowers and local birch, alder and spruce.

This vacation rental sits along scenic bench land overlooking Homer, considered by many as one of the nicest spots in the Homer area. The location is superb with views of Kachemak Bay, mountains, glaciers and just minutes away, the world famous Homer Spit. Located about 700 feet above sea level, this three and one half acre, south facing location catches all the warmth and long glorious sun our endless summer days offer. While enjoying your stay at Overlook Guest House, you will often see different wildlife species including moose, eagles, hawks, pheasant and an occasional black bear or coyote.

The friendly design is perfect for friends and family. A master bedroom and bath is located on the main floor with master walk-in closet and jetted tub for two. An efficient full kitchen has all the amenities including microwave, dishwasher and breakfast bar. The main floor also has a washer/dryer room with adjacent ½ bath. A dining area and living room with fireplace, appointed with comfortable leather furniture, makes this just the ticket for an active or relaxing vacation. A small deck is accessed from the living room with BBQ and chairs.

New for 2014! New leather furniture in the living room and blackout shades for all the bedrooms!

Upstairs are two full bedrooms, one with 3 twin beds (or 1 King and 1 twin) and the other is two twin beds (or 1 King) and additional full bath (shared).

About The Owner

Patrick and I (Dawn) have lived in the beautiful town of Homer for 25 years. We came up to work in our 20's and never left! Neither of us had ever lived by the ocean growing up but once we saw the beauty of Kachemak Bay, the glaciers and mountains; we were here to stay! The small town community with it's abundance of wildlife, green space and friendly people has been the perfect place to raise our children and start our own businesses. We are an outdoors family--our free time is spent fishing and camping in the summer and skating and skiing in the winter. This area truly has everything that we enjoy. We hope our guests can experience Homer and have the vacation of their dreams!

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Kenai Peninsula

Large, private acreage on exclusive East Hill rarely comes on the market in Homer; so when this came around, we just had to buy it! The Overlook Guest House is aptly named as it 'overlooks' Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit with good views of Eldridge Passage and Yukon Island. The area here on the hill is really nice as it does not get windy and is very sunny. Its proximity to town is good, just a quick 5 minutes. Just wait till you see the views going down East Hill into Homer, really spectacular!

What makes this house unique

I so enjoy the wildflowers that grow in profusion around the house, wild roses thrive on the hillsides here. Often when we are here, there is moose in the yard or occasionally I will see the neighborhood porcupine waddling up from the nearby gulley. It is very peaceful and private; we really enjoy this house!

We loved this house, especially the views. It was amazingly clean and very comfortable. My only minor issue was the cookware could use and update... Sharper knives and a couple new frying pans. Otherwise everything was perfect.

Beautiful house in Homer

  • 5 of 5

The view, the house, the furnishings absolutely could not have been better. Convenient location for all attractions while maintaining a private feel with a magnificent view of the bay and Homer Spit. Highly recommended!

Homer beauty

  • 5 of 5

The Overlook is a lovely home with a gorgeous view. It was sparkling clean, well equipped and very comfortable for our group of two couples. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat. We had an extra bedroom that would be great to bring the grandkids too.

Excellent VRBO choice

  • 5 of 5

Very good choice for a place to stay when in Homer ! My wife and I enjoyed all the experiences of Homer during our seven day stay and the house made that very comfortable.

One of the days, we did not leave the house and just enjoyed the magnificent views from there. Had a moose and porcupine visit the yard on a couple of days during our stay.

5 STAR STAY !

Magnificence through your Front Windows

  • 5 of 5

All that is awe inspiring about Alaska are the views from the front windows ,the deck,and the lawn from this comfortable, fully equipped,and charming home .last year I stayed on the upper ridge with wonderful views but not as carefully crafted as the views from this house .beds were comfortable,kitchen was fully equipped,place was immaculate,and the visiting moose friendly.i never moved from the porch when they strolled by .they were not part of the Maniac Moose Movie playing in Town ,5 minutes from the house and another 3 minutes to the Spit.i have 22 VRBO weeks this year on a 6 month sabbatical .if any equal or surpass this property I'll be delighted .if health permits I'll be back next year .on restaurants stick to Yelp 4 stars or better.on trips ,Kayak overnite water taxi trips,water taxi to Halibut Cove and dinner by the Firepit .all-this possible because of the owners who were helpful throughout.
