Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay near Homer! The rental was well equipped for cooking and relaxing. The reading room attached to the master bedroom worked perfectly for our baby in her pack and play. Nice view of Grewingk Glacier and a short drive to Homer and the spit. Would recommend!

Beautiful Location and Excellent Stay..

  • 5 of 5

I booked with Bobbi for a 3 night stay. We arrived late on Friday and Bobbi met us and showed us where everything was located at in the rental and where to find extra supplies if needed. She had coolers available for fishing and also had a freezer for our fish. The rental had everything we needed: spices, trash bags, storage containers, condiments, extra bedding, access to washer/dryer. Anything you could think of, Bobbie supplied. There was even a welcome book that included places to visit and places to eat. If you are looking for a quite place away with spectacular views and an owner that goes above and this place!!!

Perfect vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I planned by trip to Alaska at the last minute and lucked out! This home is perfectly situated between many of the sights Homer has to offer, has a beautiful view of GlewingK Glacier and the bay, amazing hosts, updated throughout and clean as a whistle. The owners made themselves available to make sure I had my bearings and answer any questions that came up. This was a wonderful way to get a firsthand feel for Alaska life while staying in a perfectly laid out and appointed place.

Very clean, beautifully decorated with an Alaskan style, well supplied with linens and kitchenware. Bobbi was a good communicator . This was the most spacious and best priced lodging we stayed at in two weeks in Alaska. Incredible view of the glacier out the window
