We came from a VRBO in Seward which was just an ok experience...as we pulled off the paved road up the driveway to Bobbi and Dales property a peace and calm fell over me that lasted the next seven days. The view of the water and the glacier is even a gazillion times better than their site on VRBO depicts. Beautifully landscaped yard. Welcome letter posted outside door. Unlocked front door to inviting comfortable living room with new modern furniture and tastefully decorated. Brand new kitchen with any and everything one would need to prepare any type of meal. Totally lost on me as I do not know how to cook. Great appliances all new and up to date from coffee maker to dishwasher. They even provide coffee and tea! Two queen beds with what felt like brand new pillow top mattresses . Luxurious sheets , comforters.,new pillows than felt like ours were the first heads to touch them. Heat d floor in bathroom. Generous warm welcoming hosts. Offers us fresh salmon...how kind. Too bad I didn't get the cooking gene. Shared laundry facility is not an issue as it is separate from their living space . Even though this is bottom portion of their home you will not even know they are their and the space is flooded with light with bid windows and view. They even provide wildlife viewing ... the moose and the Sandhills cranes were constant visitors. But the beet part was their pets...dog Boone and cat Ninja. Gave a real homey feel to the property...I would have stolen both animals if I thought I could have gotten away with it. They even have dog biscuits for Boone...6 per day! So cute. Come here to Homer and so like we did. Live like locals for a week. We never held a fishing pole, took a boat tour. Or stepped foot on a cruise ship but our Alaska experience is one to last a lifetime. In Homer walk the spit. Drive the Skyline drive. Drive diamond ridge road. Drive to the end of East end road. Eat at Little Mermaid,Wasabis , and Vidas Thai. Walk the beach at Anchor Point. Just enjoy the rainy day with a good book and nap. Come here to this property and just relax....thanks y'all from the bottom of our hearts.

Great place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights. The place is super clean inside and out. Only two of us stayed, but we think it would be great for us to bring our son and his family of two boys. Excellent View excellent assistance to places to go ,good location in regards to getting to the spit or to some hiking trails. Good privacy and wonderful helpful hosts.

Bobbi and Dale are gracious hosts with a beautiful home, located in perfect place to experience Homer. Equipped with a full kitchen, the apartment also allows you to sample the local faire by cooking for yourself!! Be sure to stop by the Homer Farmer's market and check out all the amazing locally grown produce!! Hopefully, the sandhill cranes will stop in to visit you :)

We would do it again!

  • 4 of 5

The rental was very nice. It has a nice clean kitchen and even a coffee nook. The two bedrooms made it perfect for our friends and my husband and I. Bobbie and Dale were both friendly. I have so many pictures of the glacier across the bay and the Eagle flying over head.

Very comfortable at night when we returned from our day. Loved all the space. Appreciated the blackout curtains, the moose and her baby in the mornings, and the dog and cat in the evenings. Best Place we stayed during our vacation! Thank you Bobbi!
