QUIET, PRIVATE, UNIQUE - A PLACE WITH A DIFFERENCE. 2 MILES FROM HOMER.

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Homer - Road Less Travelled

Owner built on the bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay.

This 6 acre property, has a large lawn leading down to the 300 ft bluff where you can pick a salad from the 30 x 72 foot greenhouse. A trail leads through birch, alder, and spruce along the small creek to the bluff where you can smell the sea, watch ravens, eagles, and gulls soar at eye level and view rafts of otters floating beyond the beach.

Close to town and new to VRBO, this custom built home will appeal to those who appreciate something special. Window sills and stair rails were hand milled with local cottonwood and there are many other special touches not ordinarily seen in a vacation rental. Visitors will enjoy a very clean, comfortable and private setting.

There is a new 12 inch Queen 'sleep innovations' bed in the bedroom with custom dressers. There is a fold out queen futon in the living room to accommodate 2 other guests. The owner lives in a separate home 100 feet away and will be available to answer questions, perhaps facilitate your way across the bay, and help make your stay in Homer as enjoyable as possible.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • pets not allowed
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

The pictures on the home page describe it well. What a view of the bay and the glaciers. Steve and Robbie were great host and we enjoyed the fresh vegetables from there greenhouse and garden. I usually do not write reviews, but this place is very nice and the owners are great. We will be staying there again on our next visit to Homer. Thanks, M & M

Wonderful flat!

My husband and I came here for 2 nights late July 2014. The booking process was simple. Steve left easy directions. The property is perfect for a couple. Very comfortable beautiful place. And the grounds and greenhouse are inspiring! Had a fabulous dinner with the veggies from it. Very quiet as well. Thanks Steve and Robby. We will send friends and we will be back! T and C

We visited the first time in Alaska and just fell in love with Homer town.
It is very peaceful and cozy feel like my home, Northern California!
We really enjoyed staying this home because the owners are caring and friendly people and specially their organic vegetables in their green house.
It was Amazing place!
We honered to be the first guests.
Definitely, going back to this place!!
Thank you again for being a wonderful host!!

Homer has many attractions to entertain visitors with varying interests. Although there is more going on in the summer, winter provides good opportunities also. Our new modern library aimed at Grewink glacier is a welcome place to explore or sit around the fireplace with a good book. The Oceans and Islands Visitor Center offers exhibits and live bird viewing cams with trails leading down to the slough and Bishops Beach. The Pratt museum has outdoor and indoor exhibits that showcase local history. There is a fantastic network of cross country ski trails and a rope tow for downhill skiing and tube sledding at Olson Mountain. Trolling for Winter Kings has become increasingly popular.

In the summer Pier One theater on the spit offers local theater. The annual shorebird Festival occurs every spring and the Wooden Boat Festival happens in the fall.

Across the bay is the 400,000 acre Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park which is accessible by boat taxi for those who enjoy hiking among mountains, rivers, lakes, and glaciers. Seldovia and the artist community of Halibut Cove are also easily accessible by boat, ferry, or plane.

Although the Homer Harbor is primarily home to a local fishing fleet there are also many excellent charter operations for bird and sea creature viewing as well as Halibut and Salmon fishing.
