"This home provides a panoramic view of the Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit, with a background of the mountains and the Grewingk Glacier. It is very serene setting as you relax on the deck and gaze out at the expanse of the Alaskan terrain. To top it off, a bald eagle or two will fly by as you sit and eat dinner ! You will need a vehicle, but it is an excellent base for activities in the area such as deep sea fishing, flights to bear country in Katmai National Park, and hiking across the bay in Kachemak State Park. The home is large enough to be comfortable for large and small families alike, with plenty of amenities for cooking if you would like. Thanks for a great vacation Robin and Yen-Li !"

"I do a ton of research and this was our third July in a row to the Soldotna area. The first two trips we had okay places to stay, nothing disaster but the Kenai River Retreat was a blast. We thoroughly enjoyed the shore access and all the available equipment. We had our own rods but theirs looked to be in good shape. Nets, coolers, freezers, waders, although you don't really towade in because the bank positions you right in front of the sockeye. We broke pliers, we borrowed theirs. Marc and Janet are both genuinely invested in helping you have a great time. The condo was just as the pictures represent. It was clean. All the appliances worked great. The oven did decide to not come on for some snap cookies I was obsessed with baking soooo I baked them in Janet's kitchen. HA! She insisted. I relented. Who can resist a cookie. Janet had the repairman in the next am and it was fixed. I liked the cross breeze from the deck screen door, flowing through to the back bedroom window. We were concerned it might be too hot. Not the case. The queen bed was comfortable and I would consider it a bigger than average queen. I rarely book anything besides a king but this worked well. I thought worse case, we will use the fold out sofa. We love the neighborhood area they are in. Not too far out of downtown Soldotna, about a 5 minute drive to Safeway, Fred Meyer a little further. So, we will definitely repeat stay here for another 10 nights in another year or two. The only recommendation I would have is a water filtration system. It took us a couple of days to get used to the slight sulphur smell (well water) you get when you first turn on the faucet. We buy bottled water anyway so it really didn't affect us that much. Bottom line. I know they have a ton of returning guests and we will be one of them."

"Homer Cottage is a wonderful vacationn home and a home in the trues sense of the word. We have stayed in many vacation homes and this was by far the best equipped. Tony and Liz are very generous and provide everything anyone could possibly want and then more. This home is large, very comfortable, roomy, on a large and beautifully maintained property and with an unbelievable view of the mountains and water. We are hoping to return soon. Thank-you Tony and Liz VERY much."
