              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1995

              About the owner: I am a freelance graphic designer married to a public school superintendent. I started spending the fall and winter months in beautiful McCall, Idaho when my husband's job landed him there in 2008. Now I have the opportunity to spend time in two beautiful locations. I get to enjoy the long days of an Alaskan summer hiking and fishing, and experience those wonderful deep powder days on my snowboard in cental Idaho. With over 30 years of living and traveling in Alaska, I would be happy to answer any questions you might have about your trip here.

              Why the Owner Chose Homer:
              One look at Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit from this home sealed the deal for us!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              This property is private and scenic, yet located so close to town. There is a view from every window. The best view is from the hot tub!
