An Answer to Prayer from the LORD!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our oldest daughter was getting married and we needed a place to host the reception. We contacted Ms. Debbie and shared our story. She so kindly made this beautiful place available for us when we thought it might not be possible. But "With God all things are possible"!!!! Every person we worked with in coordinating the reception in regards to 2nd Star---went ABOVE AND BEYOND to help us!!! They truly helped us in so many ways to make our end lighter. (which was such a great joy when planning a reception which can be a little bit overwhelming to say the least) The house is not just absolutely breath-taking, but in the midst of its beauty, it is just soooo cozy and we truly just felt at home in the magnificent design. Thank you, thank you, thank you, to all who helped us enjoy such a special day! We could not have done it without EACH OF YOU!!! "Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised!"

Awesome Wedding Venue

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great spot to host a big (or small) wedding! We had an amazing weekend and all of our out of town guests were awed at every turn.

Amazing magical place attention to every detail!

  • 5 of 5

This place is amazing. The detail and furnishings are just spectacular. The kids had an absolute blast playing in Neverland and the pool! We also had fun roasting marshmallows on the beach and taking walks on the beach while looking at the majestic mountains, eagles and glaciers. At night we snuggled up in the theatre and watched movies or we played games in the game room. The gourmet kitchen made me actually want to cook while on vacation! There are 4 ovens so we made a batch of cookies and cooked them all at once! No waiting around. We also had a family pizza night and cooked pizzas in the food burning pizza oven! What a treat. We didn't want to leave and we will return!

Poor property management especially for the price, everything was broken

  • 1 of 5

No tv, broken spa, broken fridge, leaky bathtub, broken dishwashers, none of this was disclosed . No basic supplies like soap sponges detergent toilet paper we had to buy everything and leave most behind. In addition, no response when asked for the refund for broken spa and allowance for making us change dates of trip to accommodate other guests. Was promised a small refund for an increase in airfare due to accommodation of change.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, I am so sorry you felt this way. We truly believe Second Star is a magical place, we work hard to make our guest feel at home and have never received such negative feedback. I would love to address your concerns. We do in fact have 3 televisions on the property. We do not offer cable television as we have found the majority of our guests prefer to spend their time taking in the beautiful scenery (glaciers, mountains & wildlife) Homer and Alaska offers, instead of watching cable television. However, we do understand our guests need down time. Which is why we have a movie theatre with over 700 movies and TV shows. Also, each of our televisions have a smart blu-ray player where guests can connect to their favorite apps or throw in one of our many DVDs. We also offer free unlimited high speed internet throughout the entire property. As far as a broken fridge I a can assure you all of our refrigerators are in perfect working order. Each of our kitchens is equipped with dish soap, 1 brand new sponge, kitchen cleaning spray, kitchen towels and a few dishwasher pods to get our guests started. When you stayed with us there was a broken top rack in one of the 3 dishwashers our main kitchen offers. That has since been fixed and all 3 dishwashers in the main kitchen are in perfect working order. Each of our 13 bathrooms include 2 rolls of toilet paper. That’s 26 rolls of toilet paper we include in the rental. I am sorry the person who greeted you did not advise that if your party needed more toilet paper or any other products we are more than happy to supply these items for an additional cost. We will even go grocery shopping for our guests! Also, each bathroom has a luxurious hand towel and our suite bathrooms include 2 premium bath towels and wash cloths per person as well. Spa issue. A leak developed in our Turkish bath and it had to be drained until the leak can be repaired. I apologize this was not communicated to you before hand. We are now in the process of repairing the leak and are hoping to have the Turkish bath up and running ASAP. We also have a new property manager as of August! Kristi has taken over and looks forward to welcoming and getting to know all our guests!

Incredible home in Homer!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay in this "Peter Pan" house. That is what the little girls called it. Wonderful kitchen, theater, and game area. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. The management staff was great to work with.

Family reunion at Second Star Alaska

  • 5 of 5

This is a fabulous facility in a beautiful setting. There are a lot of visiting areas plus a pool, theater, and game room to keep the kids occupied. The view is stunning and there is an easy path to the beach. All in all I can't imagine a better place to stay.
