About Maggie Burns

My name is Maggie Burns and I own Heather

View Vacation Rental along with my husband John.We have lived in Homer for 30 years. I am a retired chef and my husband works on a research vessel M.V. Tiglax for U.S. Fish and Wildlife. We travel 2-4 months in the winter months and have been to over 20 countries.

Maggie Burns purchased this house in 1996

Why Maggie Burns chose Kenai Peninsula

We moved to Homer 30 years ago and fell in love with the beauty and friendliness of the people. We still feel that way today and welcome people into our home to experience the alaskan way.

What makes this house unique

We built our house from the ground up. We love our expansive views and privacy.

Homer's home away from home.

Majestic view, very comfortable well stocked accommodations. We were thrilled with this house! We loved seeing the snow geese and Sandhill Cranes flying by the window.

well equiped home, calming atmosphere, stunning views, comfortable beds, excellent position.

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I booked the house the dozens of 5 star reviews did sway us. Sadly, I cannot give it the 6 stars which it deserves. Beautiful house, wants for nothing, and you feel at home immediatley.

The photos of the views look good, but when you are there they are stunning. Homer itself is small and all the local people we met were very friendly. Discovered a lot about fish, wildlife and coastal conservation and was surprised how little we knew before. Even saw a Moose in the car park of the Homer Bookstore !! Wonderful place to visit and Maggie is the perfect host, available as often or as little as you want. Would love to return.

Top-notch Property

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this VRBO is top-notch. Very clean and well-appointed we enjoyed every minute in this perfect rental home. The view from the living room is spectacular, the kitchen is spacious and the rooms (and beds) were very comfortable. The large TV downstairs came in handy during a heavy rain that came through during our stay. Maggie was an excellent communicator and clearly loves living in the area and her home shows pride in ownership. Homer is just a short drive from the property and had many good restaurants that we enjoyed during our stay and of course checking out the Homer Spit was a trip highlight.

Beautiful home, stunning views, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The home is a beautiful house on a hill with views out to the coast. It is very well furnished and with everything needed for a very pleasant stay, it was a pleasure to return each night after hiking, kayaking, sightseeing etc and relax in the spacious accommodation. We had very good weather when we were there and enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evening with a glass of wine and ate dinner out there most nights and watched the magnificent sunsets. It is near enough to Homer to enjoy the facilities there without feeling you are making a journey each time but far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the area. We had a wonderful week there and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Amazing Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5


Your home was all VRBO promised and then some. We had a fabulous time staying at Heather View. The views are amazing. Was so nice to spend the last 3 days of our vacation in a home. Washer and dryer were a bonus as we were all able to do our laundry before returning home. The outdoor grill was also a bonus as we stayed in and cooked the halibut and salmon which we caught on a fishing trip while in Homer. I would highly recommend Mann's Charters for anyone interested in booking a charter. Mike Mann was awesome as was his mate Brad. If ever in Homer again, I would fish with no one but Mann's Charters. Pizza at Fat Olives was delicious. Your home is immaculate and we loved all the photos of your journeys. Thank You again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. If ever in Homer again, we will most definitely stay at Heather View,
