ReviewsWrite a review
My wife and I were referred by a friend to this lovely getaway, and I have to say it was WELL worth it! So many exciting things to see and do in the area. We took advantage of being so close and yet so privately located to town. We thank you for allowing us a 10% discount to law enforcement. This is one vacation I am sure she will never forget. Thank you!

Our stay last month was fantastic
Our stay last month was fantastic
Last month our stay at your brand new home was fantastic. It offered everything a couple could want. Relaxing, romantic, yet full of adventure. My husband caught a 62 lb King off of Anchor Point. It was really great having fishing charter professionals just across the street. My husband will be back to Moose and Bear hunt in August. If you want a really want a nice place to stay, where you can view the wildlife closeup, this is the place!

About the owner: We are a close knit family that decided to venture to Alaska six years ago. We enjoy living a healthy life style that includes all outdoor activities, exercise, fishing, hunting, camping and spending quality time together.
Why the Owner Chose Homer:
We moved to Homer six years ago and fell in love with the beautiful landscape, fresh air, wildlife and outdoor activities. We decided to build this house in order to allow others to have the opportunity to experience this dream life destination. This vacation rental is right outside of City limits and allows more opportunity for relaxation and comfortable living.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This rental is only a mile away from Fritz Creek General Store and The Homestead Restaurant which offers gas, liquor, snacks, personal items, delicious veggie and brisket sandwiches, burritos, artisan pizza, pastries, locally grown salads, soups and fresh bread all made daily. Just a short drive away from downtown Homer, shopping, dining and the harbor.
