About Dawn Schneider

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!

Dawn Schneider purchased this House in 2007

Why Dawn Schneider chose Homer

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!

                                                                This was our 13th trip to various parts of Alaska and on each we've rented a home/apartment. The Overlook Guest House is an A+++ experience. The house is lovely, extremely well maintained and goes beyond the write-up. You have your privacy yet it's a short drive down to Homer and there aren't enough adjectives to accurately describe the many and varied moods of the views you'll enjoy throughout the house. Couldn't be a better home away from home.

                                                                GREAT VIEW

The house has a fully equipped kitchen with an open living room and dining area and three bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds. It was handy to have a full size washing machine and dryer. Did I mention how spectacular the views were....we enjoyed watching the fog roll in and out of the area. We will definitely be back for a visit. Thank you Dawn and Pat for sharing your beautiful home with us. Jeff, Colleen and Lou!

                                                                Great location. Front entrance sign a little hard to find initially. Very confortable, great views.

The location was super convenient. I loved that we were far enough away from town that you heard absolutely nothing at night yet could quickly drive down to the Starbucks at the Safeway for our morning Java. If you are looking for a base camp for a fishing charter in Homer, this is the perfect place to stay!

                                                                Excellent accommodations. Best view and very clean and comfortable!
