About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft bedroom, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Welcome to the Grand View Retreat Chalet overlooking a spectacular view of Kachemak Bay, Cooks Inlet, Dixon Glacier, Portlock Glacier, Grewingk Glacier, and Homer Spit.

This 5,200 sq. ft. luxurious chalet has 5 bedrooms with attached baths, and a cozy loft bedroom with trundle beds. It is very private and is tastefully decorated, has a large gourmet kitchen, a 60” big screen TV, I pod dock, barbeque grill, 4 decks, 2 Jacuzzi tubs and too much more to list. With two very large living rooms and a gigantic loft, all with spectacular views, it is perfect for special occasions such as family reunions.

Most visitors are taken aback from the breathtaking view of the Alaskan Mountains and nearby glaciers, surrounding Ketchmak Bay. At night you can enjoy the beautiful spectacle of light emanating from the nearby Famous Homer Spit.

The Chalet is located 9 miles from town, but is close to nearby shopping, wine tasting, fine dining, art galleries and museums. Animal enthusiasts will enjoy the safe view of nearby Alaskan wildlife that includes bears, otters, moose, eagles, birds, hares, porcupines and other animals indigenous to the area.

Seafood and fishing lovers will have their fill of Alaskan Halibut, varieties of salmon, rock fish, and clams. Overall this property will allow you to enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska with all the comforts of home. Several moose live in the woods surrounding the house and it is very common to see more than one moose from the balcony. They really love the clover right under the balcony.

I promise you just one thing. When it is time to go home, you will not want to leave. But then, you can always come again next year.

Additional amenities: satellite TV, assortment of DVDs and board games, off street parking for 10 vehicles.

Why Prabha Mani chose Fritz Creek

Wonderful place for family re unions special anniversaries and landmark birthdays. it is like a home away from your home.

We love fish and fishing so bought this property. Our family gets together here once a year and a spacious home for all including our grand children. We just fell in love with this Chalet.

What makes this house unique

The Views from the living room having our cup of coffee or vine in the evenings. Also the moose family that comes grazing by summer time behind this chalet lovely to watch them from the patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

all was very good.The house was nice and well equipped. I think the grill is old, more than it was dirty.

But everything else was fine, worked well and we enjoyed it.The views are tremendous.

What a great house! Super nice, clean, comfortable beds, unbelievable views. Kitchen had everything we needed and then some- what a great surprise. We had regular visits from a young bull moose and a mother moose and calf regularly. We caught some fish with a local charter boat company. We walked Homer Spit and admired the boats and shops. We found the people in Homer so friendly!! What a great place.

Exceeded our Expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Incredible home, with every possible appointment, every appliance, everything labeled. There was even a spare raincoat in the entryway for my niece who forgot hers! Plenty of room for everyone, some rooms didn't even get used. Blackout curtains so we could sleep. Spices, teas, coffees, and condiments included. You name it, they've already thought of it.

The view was mesmerizing and constantly changing--was a pleasure to simply be in the house and look at glaciers and mountains and water. We took dozens of pictures of the view. It helped to have the mother moose and her two babies cross the yard a few times.

Yes, if one person runs a bath, water pressure goes to zero everywhere else. As soon as we realized it, we just coordinated. No big deal.

Thank you! This house made our vacation fabulous!

Lovely Place

  • 4 of 5

This property is well appointed with spectacular views. It is approximately 9 miles from Homer so grocery planning is a necessity if you don't wont to be running back and forth to the grocery store. It only sleeps 16 if there are couples. We took a group of 11 women and 3 ended up sleeping on the floor. I attempted to cancel the reservation within 24 hours because of the sleeping arrangements and was unable to, so make sure you are certain before renting this property. Cancellation policy is strict. This makes it difficult to arrange if you do not have commitments from other people sharing expenses. Also the base price only includes 4 people. The added charges for adding people jacks up the price considerably. Otherwise, it was a lovely place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I am so sorry your guests had to sleep on the floor. I distinctly remember talking with you at length over the phone, regarding this issue and there were couches, futons, and a few other places for guests to sleep, if sharing a bed was not an option. I thought it was settled. And yes my house description states that the house is located 9 miles from town. And yes it is absolutely imperative one reads the contract in its entirety before booking. I still believe it’s an awesome place.

Wow! What a place and what a view!

  • 5 of 5

The whole family was wowed by this house from the moment we walked in the door until the moment we left. It was perfect for our large family. The view is stunning. There is enough public space to be together, and when needed ample space to spend time in smaller groups. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious.

We chose this one in part because we thought we'd be able to work together in the kitchen. It was even better than expected, with ample room for four children at the island and still plenty of space for three adults to prep food. The kitchen is fully equipped and the view is still all around.

We also loved watching the cranes feed and fly by.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

Wonderful home with plenty of room, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do the home justice. It is a BEAUTIFUL home with an abundance of living spaces, large bedrooms, private baths, gourmet kitchen. The art work and decorations are unique and give the home a lot of character. It is a 9 mile drive from Homer but we really enjoyed being out. The views are dramatic and beautiful. The home is fully furnished with everything you need. We had 6 adults, 1 couple and 4 individuals all had more than enough sleeping options and room to spread out. We would definitely stay again. Reasonably priced for the size and quality of home it is.
