  • All the comforts of home

    "This was a terrific location, with magnificent, panoramic views of Kachemak Bay. The house provided everything we needed, & was welcoming & comfortable - the owner thought of everything! We enjoyed the ease of "moving in" for a week, & had no problems. We explored the Homer area in very good Springtime weather, took lots of photos, & talked of how we will return again. Just great! Thanks . . . travelers from the Florida Keys."

  • 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."

  • Amazing place to stay!

    "Mike & Deb were wonderful hosts. The house was very well maintained with amazing views! Nice place to relax after a long day of fishing, hiking and sightseeing. Mike & Deb answered any questions we had. The affordability of the house enabled us to do/see more while we were there. It was nice not having to eat out all the time. We had four adults in our party and were very comfortable. We will definitely return next time we visit Alaska! Thanks Mike & Deb for amazing memories!"

  • Amazing place - good price

    "This place blew me away. Every detail appears thought out from the huge stacks of tourist guides, to the phenomenal locally roasted coffee, to the extra towels by the door to the hot tub and even the spare emergency rain jackets. Everything is sparkling clean, very well maintained, well thought out, and then there is the view.... I actually can't describe the view, you can see the picture, but that is a bit like having someone tell you what chocolate tastes like. Try this place out just for the view. Except for the one rainy night, we watched gorgeous sunsets reflected onto the bay, the mountains, and the glaciers from the patio. I highly recommend this place to anyone!!!!"
