Even better than the photos.

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully appointed apartment is on the first floor of their home. Bedding and towels were luxurious. Owner was friendly but not intrusive. Location is just a few minutes to downtown and the Spit. In winter, some restaurants are closed, but there are still more good ones to choose from than many other larger cities. They even had a telescope for glacier viewing. Wish I could give Homer and this property 10 stars!

Fabulous view apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This two-bedroom apartment has everything! From the moment we stepped in the door, it felt like home. We didn't want to leave! It's very well furnished, lots of storage space, well stocked kitchen (including food staples), and beautifully decorated. It was spotlessly clean! The bedrooms are roomy, with cozy well-padded carpet, and the bathroom has a heated tile floor! We loved the ocean/marine theme which was carried throughout, including artwork, glass fishing floats, books, bedding, lamps, etc. There's plenty of comfortable seating in the living room (couch and two recliners), as well as a charming retro kitchen table and chairs. The unit has everything we wanted and more! We can't think of anything else we could have wanted or needed. We hope to stay there again on our next trip to Homer!

Great Choice!!!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay. This rental is very clean, updated, private and cozy. We stayed 3 nights and felt right at home in Homer. We visit Homer a couple of times a year so we hope to come back and stay at Bobbi and Dale's again.

Thanks for having us. Larry and Jodie

Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!

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.
