Property description

Venture north to Norma's Cove, and find seclusion and comfort waiting for you. Overlooking the shores of Kachemak Bay in glorious Homer, Alaska, this enchanting three-bedroom home is a perfect mix of comfort and beauty, sure to be a wonderful base for your Homer vacation.

Nestled by the waterfront, Norma’s Cove gives the feeling of seclusion and solitude, while still less than a five-minute drive from downtown Homer. Don’t feel like leaving the comfort of the living room? No problem. Curl up on the couches and enjoy one of the finest views Homer has to offer.

A full range of amenities awaits you in this three-bedroom, two-bath house, complete with a full kitchen (stove and appliances), DSL internet and television. A cozy living room and dining room are sure to give you and your family plenty of room to relax and feel right at home. And what Alaskan home would be complete without a fireplace in the living room?

The Master Suite is furnished with a beautiful king-sized sleigh bed. Plenty of room ensures a comfortable stay.

A nautical theme and a view of Kachemak Bay makes this a perfect room for anyone in the family. Two twin beds sit side by side. An additional room has a comfy queen-size bed, and of course, a great view!

Step out the front door and view the abundant beauty of Kachemak Bay. The front yard offers a great place to sit and enjoy an unparalleled view of the mountains across the bay, which are home to a network of hiking trails should you be so inclined during your visit to Homer.

Visible from the front lawn is the famed Homer Spit, home to many prominent art galleries, delicious restaurants, and the many fishing charters that Homer has to offer.

What better way to relax than sliding into the hot tub after a long day of gallery hopping, reeling in the “big one,” or just enjoying the town of Homer? Situated on the front deck of the house, the five-person hot tub offers a private setting to unwind and relive the adventures of the day. Or to, once again, let the beauty of the mountains and the bay simply wash over you.
