"We were very impressed at the view!! Then we were very impressed at how clean everything was. We stayed at the end of July for 4 nights, the Stellar Jay was convenient for us doing our excursions to Seward, Cooper Landing, and Soldotna. The beds were very comfortable as we had all stated we slept our best on vacation at the Stellar Jay. Gary and Treva really thought of everything from fire wood to directions with soap for the washing machine. It was wonderful to have drinking water along with the dispenser as the water from the tap had a different odor due to the sulfur (I believe). Gary and Treva gave wonderful directions on using anything in the house. And the view to wake up to that in the morning and have a fire by it was amazing. This is our first VRBO and because of the wonderful experience I would do it again. I would recommend the Stellar Jay or renting anything from Gary and Treva."

"The week we spent here was fantastic. This artfully crafted 'lodge' home is stunning inside and out. We were comfortable and pampered beyond expectation from our first booking questions through our stay. The location was great for us as a central place to return from adventures in Seward, Homer, and Soldotna. But it was tempting to stay 'home' everyday! Outside, we enjoyed the stunning views from the lawn, riverfront and generous porch. Inside, we were cozy, marveled at the beauty of the property, and slept well in amazing beds. When cooking or grilling, we found the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The caretakers, the Larsens, were responsive and helpful, so be sure to contact them! The Coulsens have created a very special place and the Kenai River and Cooper Landing are gems."

"My husband and I went here for our honeymoon after our wedding. What a wonderful place to unwind and get away from it all (barely have Verizon service)! The view and atmosphere took our breaths away. The cabin is in tip-top condition and possesses all the necessary cooking supplies. We stopped at Safeway in Homer before we caught the Bay Roamers water taxi over to the cove. We ate dinner each night at The Saltry. The food was superb, a little repetitive after 4 nights, would have brought food to grill one night if I knew the grill was so nice. Tracey was very helpful coordinating our taxi rides and kayak rental. It's like a mini travel agency since everyone in cove knows everyone else and works together. It's a good 20+ minute walk from the Saltry to the cabin with a steep incline, fine for us but would definitely not work for some. But luckily there is only 1 road and it was light until 11pm! Making walks back after dinner easy. Highly recommended."
