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.

Great lodging. Living area big, view fabulous.

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!

Everything you could want! Just like home!

  • 5 of 5

Bobbi and Dale provided an exceptionally clean and well stocked apartment, just like they left us their own home. Bobbi created a scrapbook highlighting everything needed for a great stay.......restaurants, points of interest, tours and guides and more! She couldn't have made it any easier. Want to see a moose??? just look out a window around dusk. Very close to stores, restaurants, the Spit and recreational activities. Would definitely recommend to anyone!!
