  • Beautifully appointed, great location!

    "Our family of five loved staying in the "Bunk House" for a weeklong stay in Cooper Landing. The pictures simply don't do the house justice...it's soooooo much nicer in person! :-) As others have stated, the beds are VERY comfortable, and the kitchen is a dream to cook in. We grilled our salmon on the great porch with views of the Kenai River running past. The bathrooms were very spacious, although it might be easy to miss the 1st floor bathroom (take note!). Of course, we also loved having the washer/dryer to use (huge capacity), and really enjoyed the collection of DVDs and CDs (great taste!). A few notes: the beds are all twins, except for one room with a double and twin. Also: there is NO wifi, and the cell service coverage is dismal (I couldn't get any internet connection from my phone, although I could text and call). We ended up driving up to the Princess Lodge (5 mins away) each day for about an hour to use their free wifi to check on email, Facebook, etc. and it was nice to be internet-free anyway!!!! ;-) Thanks to the very sweet and helpful Danette and Adam, our caretakers, who were awesome, too. (Adam is a fishing guide and you can book with him, or he will help you arrange for a tour with the best guides in town.)"

  • 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."

  • OMG what a view!

    "The Glacier View cabin has everything you will need and more. The kitchen has your cooking basics, just stop by Safeway for your groceries and your set. If you forgot anything there is Fritz Creek General Store super close, you can run up there for groceries and they have great pizza! Sitting on one of the two decks and looking across the bay at the breathtaking views, WOW! I wanted a place to decompress/relax and I found it, that is why I have already booked my second trip for this summer. The cabin is also close to town for families to enjoy the numerous activities including excellent dining, fishing, museums, and shopping. Catkin is an excellent host, thank you for a wonderful vacation that I will never forget. Looking forward to my stay this summer!"
