About the property

** Please note that the homeowner lives on site, in a completely separate lower unit, and may be present during your stay **

Plan your next escape to this 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom vacation rental apartment, which sleeps 4 in Homer, Alaska. Enjoy the luxury and comfort of this 1200-square-foot, custom-built home, boasting a deck with stunning views of the mountains and Kachemak Bay, an outdoor grill, and 5 acres of beautifully maintained land for you to explore. Bring your loved ones for a trip you’ll never forget!


Bedroom: Queen Bed | Living Room: Queen Sleeper Sofa

Arrive at the property and make your way inside the apartment, which takes up the full top floor of the home. The unit features radiant floor heating throughout to keep you warm during winter months, a spacious bedroom, a gorgeous full bathroom, an open living, kitchen and dining area and an outdoor deck with 180-degree, panoramic glacier, water and mountain views to the West and South.

Expansive windows line the wall of the living area, allowing natural sunlight to pour in, illuminating the space. Make your way across the beautiful purple heart hardwood floors, with radiant heating, to the living room and sink into the plush furniture to unwind from your travels. Turn on the electric, fan-powered fireplace to warm up on those chilly nights.

A 50-inch Smart TV, equipped with a Blu-Ray player, is provided for your entertainment. Stream movies from your Netflix or Amazon account or choose from the library of movies offered at the property. If you would like a larger selection, you can rent movies from Fritz Creek General Store, Safeway or Millie’s Videos in town.

The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare delicious home-cooked meals. Enjoy views of the mountains and bay while you use the 5-burner gas cooktop located on the island. During the summer months, ask the homeowners to harvest some salad greens from the garden so you can indulge in fresh ingredients!

If you’re searching for an al fresco dining experience, head out to the spacious deck and fire up the grill for a cookout. Stroll around the yard to enjoy the flowers and rock gardens as your food settles. Later, sip a nightcap as you watch the sun go down. During the summer, the sun sets around 11:00 pm, so you can enjoy even more time on the deck, reading and admiring the scenery! While outdoors, play a game of horseshoes or croquet out on the lawn.

When you’re ready to unwind, draw a bubble bath with sea salt and essential oils and let the jetted tub soak your cares away. The bathroom is custom-tiled and has custom Homer beach rockwork on the shower floor, across the lavatory vanity and around the bathtub. The beach rocks are great for massaging your tired feet while you shower after a day of hiking, fishing or beachcombing.

When you feel relaxed and rejuvenated from your bath, crawl into the queen-sized, memory foam bed and drift into a deep sleep. A queen-sized sleeper sofa in the living room provides additional sleeping for 2 guests, with room for 1 more on the couch.

If you're feeling up to some company, pay the homeowner a visit in her glass studio, or even take a class with her to learn how to make your own glass! This is the perfect home activity for you and your loved ones to enjoy during your stay. Create a piece that will commemorate your time together.


We are a scenic 9 mile drive outside of Homer, just far enough to enjoy the peace and seclusion but close enough to enjoy all Homer has to offer!

Book a discounted private or semi-private lesson in fused glass with the homeowner. The studio is right on the property, so you won’t have to travel far. Learn the basics of kiln-formed glass, create 2 small projects and take the glass home as memorabilia from your trip!

If you love observing nature, go for a thrilling helicopter ride and enjoy glacier tours, volcano tours or bear watching!

Other fun activities in the area include kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and golfing. There's no shortage of things to do during your stay at this Homer property.

Homer Magic

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this home was an absolutely magical experience and will be for you as well. Gracious owners who give attention to every detail...all to ensure that you have a memorable stay in their property. The view, the kitchen, the bathroom, the cozy comfort...we stayed an extra day and wish we could have stayed longer.

Amazing views! Walk through the door and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many VRBOs and these owner's give so much attention to detail. It really is a home away from home. So many little touches. The home is also beautiful with amazing views. Don't hesitate! This is a great place to stay in Homer.

Beautiful place with lots of attention to detail. The hosts provided a welcome basket, brownies, and tour of the home. Also great tips for dinner.

You won't be disappointed with the views and the park-like setting of this home.

Wonderful setting, well decorated and a view to die for!

  • 5 of 5

Everything that you would have at home plus much more. Well decorated, nice bed, jucazzi tub, bbq, etc, etc. Appx 10 miles from Homer but no big deal. If we ever get to Homer again we'll surely stay here again. Thanks Tanya and Rick!
