Homer house description

A beautiful custom 2000 square-foot, two-bath chalet-style home located five miles east of Homer. This vacation rental sits along scenic bench land considered by many as one of the nicest spots in the Homer area. The location is superb with views of Kachemak Bay, glacier-laced mountains and, just minutes away, the world-famous Homer Spit.

At only a few hundred feet above sea level, this three and-one-half acre, extensively-landscaped, south-facing location catches all the warmth and long glorious sun our endless summer days have to offer. Relax on the wrap-around deck soaking up the spectacular views and splendid surroundings.

While enjoying your stay at Waterman Creek Guest House and the greater Homer area, you will often spot different wildlife species, including moose, eagles, sandhill cranes, hawks, pheasants, an occasional black bear or coyote and far too many marine creatures to list.

The open-gathering, friendly design is perfect for friends and family. With its cedar interior, vaulted angled ceilings, rock fireplace and floor-to-ceiling view windows you will feel like you are in your own private lodge. The big custom kitchen has all the amenities including microwave, dishwasher and large breakfast bar. A dining area and living room, appointed with comfortable leather furniture, make this just the ticket for an active or relaxing vacation.

Upstairs in the spacious master suite loft, you will find more great views, a private bath, beautiful queen sleigh bedroom set and two additional single beds. On the main level are the two other bedrooms with two single beds which can be joined to make a king bed.

While visiting us in Homer you will find plenty to do. We are the Halibut Fishing Capital of the World with huge flat fish caught on a regular basis. Marine activities abound: fishing, clamming, whale watching, birding, kayaking, marine tours, museums, art galleries, great restaurants, hiking, horseback riding, fly-in bear and scenic flight tours--and those are just some of the possibilities.

Our vacation rental will satisfy all your vacation requirements for a memorable trip when visiting us on the Kenai Peninsula. We are a kid-friendly guest house. Please, no pets or indoor smoking. If we can be of service, give Patrick or Dawn a call or email us.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Patrick and I have lived in the beautiful town of Homer for 25 years. We came up to work in our 20's and never left! Neither of us had ever lived by the ocean growing up but once we saw the beauty of Kachemak Bay, the glaciers and mountains; we were here to stay! The small town community with it's abundance of wildlife, green space and friendly people has been the perfect place to raise our children and start our own businesses. We are an outdoors family--our free time is spent fishing and camping in the summer and skating and skiing in the winter. This area truly has everything that we enjoy. We hope our guests can experience Homer and have the vacation of their dreams!

              Why the Owner Chose Homer:
              When this beautiful home came up for sale, we immediately put in an offer (in front of the other 5 people rushing to their real estate agents) within a couple of days of going on the market. The views from East End Road are some of the best in Homer with the convenience of being close to town and within a mile of Kachemak Drive; a short cut to the Homer Spit without having to travel through town. Homer is known as the "Fishing Capital of the World" and many charter operations and wildlife tours are available on the Homer Spit. Two of the finest restaurant in Homer are located within minutes of our house, both offering fine seafood and full bars. The house is situated on 4 landscaped acres, ensuring a feeling of space and tranquility.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We love the huge lawn and beautiful flowers that surround the house. With a large lawn, in a rural setting, local bird and wildlife such as Sandhill cranes and moose are easily visible. The large deck is perfect for socializing and enjoying the fabulous views. Inside, the open floor plan on the main floor gives you a good feeling of space and is plenty of room for a large group. The huge picture windows brings the view inside and personally, I love the large window in front of the sink in the kitchen!
