The panoramic view of mountains and Kachemak Bay will amaze you every day. Even after 20 years, Dale and I never take the natural beauty for granted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Dale, a semi-retired commercial fisherman turned sport fishing enthusiast. He enjoys gardening and finding 'hot' fishing holes in the bay. Bobbi, an elementary teacher and a retired tour guide Just ask and I'll share the 'best kept secrets' only Alaska locals know.

Why the Owner Chose Fritz Creek, AK, USA:
This setting is your 'home' away from home. You will find all the comforts you could want and the hospitality as if you've been a long time friend. We look forward to your visit. Bobbi & Dale

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Centrally located, 5.5 miles from downtown and Homer Spit. Enjoy Alaska's natural beauty out your front door; while, a 15 minute drive you'll be casting in The Fishing Hole, boarding your fishing charter, or admiring the local talent in the many Homer art galleries. Hiking, dining, beach combing or relaxing are just a few of the attractions of our Hamlet By The Sea offer visitors.
