  • Beautiful!

    "This home was perfect for our 3 generation family stay. We rented it for a month so that our huge family could take turns coming to Juneau. The home is spacious with breathtaking views. You can't help but feel at home during your staying in this lovely home. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need and more. You will make incredibly memories during your stay. There is loads of closet space in every bedroom including the master. The owners are extremely quick to respond to any needs or questions. Just do it! You will not regret it for a minute!"

  • One of the best vacation spots of our lives!

    "I can't imagine a vrbo more perfect for us than Little Fireweed Cottage. The owners were very easy to work with from start to finish. We are two couples in their 50s & 60s. One has some physical impairments, so our only suggestion would be grab-bars and non-slip decals for the bathtub. She did take a tumble during our stay. This was an ideal vacation spot ... close to everything, yet private. No traffic noise. There were adjoining properties, but the most we saw or heard were "children" noises from down the hill, and only during the day. Very faint, no problem. Wildflower, native grass "lawn," just like we have at our lakehouse in northern Wisconsin. We had moose in the yard, nearly every night. I suspect there aren't bears in the area, as the garbage bin at the end of the driveway went undisturbed. We were less than a half-mile from the Down East Saloon and liquor store. Check out open-mic night. FUN! Got some pointers while there, on where to dine in Anchorage on our way home. Only a mile or two from the Old Town Area and entrance to the spit. From the deck, the view includes a bit of Beluga Lake, the Homer airport, the bay and the mountains! Imagine sitting in the hot tub at the end of the day with a glass of wine, watching the everchanging lightshow on the distant peaks ... Close to the museums, nature trails, the Bear Creek Winery and a paved walk that runs to Old Town. New washer/dryer was nice to have. Ample towel supply, great bedding, comfortable mattresses, especially if you like them on the softer side. They've added room-darkening shades in the bedrooms. Adequate storage. Nice supply of 'left-behind' spices, dishware, utensils and cooking supplies ... even Panko for our halibut and salmon. Could use more kitchen storage containers like Rubbermaid. Clean, comfortable, close to everything, private and a hot tub. What more could you ask for? Perhaps the perfect weather (no rain) we had, and no mosquitoes. The only "skeeters" we saw were on the trails at the Wynn Nature Center. Don't forget to take a sidetrip up Skyline Drive ... what a view. We rented the Cottage for eight days. Ten would have been perfect. So I guess we must return, eh? If we ever return to Alaska for a third vacation, we'd pick the Cottage again. Homer was a great town, from walking on the beach, museums, restaurants (including Hobo Jim's show at AJ's Old Towne Steakhouse), nature trails, the dock-creatures tour for $5, several visits to Salty Dog, boat excursions, etc."

  • Best place EVER!

    "My 3 friends and I stayed at Judy's Sprucecot at the end of May. It was PERFECT. Beautiful giant logs gave the house a rustic charm, but with all the necessary modern amenities we could need. And our hostess Judy was a wealth of information about the town and its history. The house is in a residential neighborhood, but only about 2 blocks from the heart of town. We were able to walk to town easily to enjoy the sights. Thanks for a great time, Judy! We hope to be back soon!"

  • Ohio/Kentucky Crew

    "There were two couples and we had two rooms. The facilities were outstanding!!! Extremely clean and beautifully maintained. The small kitchenette, fully equiped, in one of the rooms was just what we need for breakfast. It was well stocked with all sorts of teas, coffee and hot chocolate. The refrig gave us a place to store water and soft drinks and to keep fruit, milk, etc. Laundry facilities were also available. If we ever return to Alaska we will definitely stay there. We will also recommend to friends who are planning a trip."
