  • 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!"

  • Quaint and comfortable home

    "This house was so cute. It is decorated with many antiques and unique items. Yet it was very comfortable. We were so happy to have two bathrooms and to have the availability of laundry facilities. Plenty of room was available for two couples and our grandson to have privacy. Wandering in the garden was very relaxing. The flowers and the veggies were all beautiful. The view was beautiful-when the weather was clear! We were able to see down to the spit. The ride up was a little farther that we realized, but the view and accommodations were well worth it!! We would definitely stay there again!!"

  • Nice Place; great views

    "When we first pulled up to the house I was shocked; the pictures did not include the adjacent areas so the unkempt yards and homes next door took away from this home. It didn't help that the yard needed attention (tall grass and weeds were in abundance). The inside of the cabin was just as cute as the pictures, beds were comfy, but my husband did have trouble with the stairs & the multi levels upstairs and down. The stairs are very steep. I must have read on another site that there was a washer & dryer but this house does not have one available for use. I was also shocked by the limited supply of towels...we were staying for 3 days and were provided 3 towels for the two of us. We either had to share a fresh towel each day or re-use towels. No guest soap is included so don't forget to pack it! On the other hand there are plenty of windows with a great view of glaciers and the Homer Spit. We enjoyed our stay even though we had rain and had to put up with road construction to and from Homer."

  • 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."
