NamaStay invites you to step inside, unwind and take in the panoramic views of this roomy and comfortable home away from home. Surrounded by stunning Kachemak Bay and its glacier-studded mountains, NamaStay is located in arguably one of the most scenic areas of Homer, yet we are a convenient 6 miles from downtown. Within minutes you can access Homer's art galleries, shopping centers, and fine restaurants-- or head to the famous Homer Spit for myriad fishing and recreational opportunities.

This 1400 sq. foot chalet-style Alaskan home is sunny, stylish and spacious. Situated on just over an acre of land, NamaStay is ideal for friends, couples and families, and can accommodate 2 to 6 people.

The ample living room boasts vaulted ceilings and a wall of south-facing windows to capture the light and warmth of our long summer days. A dining area is nestled into the living room, providing an intimate space to celebrate food with family and friends. Our deck is fully equipped with a propane BBQ grill, picnic table and lounge chairs, and is the perfect place to enjoy your fresh catch, some Homer-grown veggies or a locally brewed beer.

The well-appointed kitchen has everything you need and more to prepare gourmet meals during your stay. A small table and custom crafted breakfast bar provide spaces to indulge and take in spectacular views.

The master bedroom includes a queen size bed, walk in closet, 8 drawer dresser and full bathroom. The en suite bathroom features a handcrafted stained glass countertop with stainless steel sink. Light-canceling shades offer a reprieve from the midnight sun and alluring views when you're ready to daydream about what adventures await you.

The second bedroom hosts 2 new twin beds, situated opposite each other in a cozy loft bedroom, with plenty of closet space and a luggage rack. Distinctive angles and newly installed birch flooring transform this modest space into an inviting enclave. An additional sleeping space containing a fold-down sofa bed is available on the first floor in a recessed area off the living room. There's a small closet in this area for storing luggage and hanging clothing items, as well as a 3/4 bath just steps away. The downstairs bathroom's unique tile and beach rock floors, sink top and backsplash are noteworthy design features.

An expansive yard hosts guests such as resident moose, eagles, hawks and pheasant; sandhill cranes and other migratory birds also frequent the wide open fields this region is known for. A lovely 2 mile walking trail is accessed in either direction from NamaStay, an easy and relaxing way to explore the neighborhood and all the while be dazzled by breathtaking views.

NamaStay provides all the comforts of home, with an intimate setting in a superb and convenient location. Make NamaStay your home base for your next Alaskan adventure and create unforgettable memories that will leave you beckoning for more.

About Jaime Gable

12 years ago, I ventured to Homer, Alaska on a quest to explore the Last Frontier. I was young, eager and fresh out of college searching for a place to call home and plant my feet for awhile. Being a sun-loving surfer chick, I never in my wildest dreams imagined that a place like Alaska could capture my attention for long, or steal my heart. It did. To my amazement, it wasn't just the breathtaking scenery and jaw-dropping views that Homer offered that kept me yearning for more - it was the combination of the remarkable natural beauty with its outstanding community. Having grown up in the suburbs of Pennsylvania, I had never experienced true community the way that I did upon arriving at the end of the road. Since that time, I have adapted my lifestyle in order to maintain a home-base here. As a result of this alternative lifestyle, I have been able to live out many dreams - one of which has been my passion for traveling. The long, dark winter months beckon me to throw some meager belongings into a backpack and hit the jet stream. My travels include destinations such as Africa, India, Colombia, Indonesia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama and Mexico. And my list is still long. It is my own passion for traveling combined with my love for Homer, Alaska that made me decide to open up my home to other travelers. Besides my love for exploring foreign lands, I also love to garden, hike, cook, and spend time with my beloved dog, Rufus.

Jaime Gable purchased this house in 2004

Why Jaime Gable chose Fritz Creek

NamaStay is located in a spectacularly scenic area of Homer just 6 miles from downtown and the Homer Spit. The proximity to town puts you within 10 minutes of Homer's art galleries and great restaurants, as well as heading out on a fishing charter or kayak trip for the day. The residential neighborhood provides great opportunities for wildlife viewing while relaxing on the deck grilling up your fresh catch of the day. There's also great walking/hiking just out your doorstep.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The view is great and all of your recommendations were amazing. We hiked, fished for halibut and enjoyed the stores and places on the spit. The kids enjoyed Netflix and the parents enjoyed sitting on the deck. The rooms are amazing and very well furnished. We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to others. Thank you so much for letting us stay here, it is a very nice place.

Namastay is a beautiful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house itself is clean, well laid out with a full modern kitchen, living room, and dining room. We stayed as a couple but I could see a large family gathering comfortably in this home. Our favorite thing was the view! Looking out the huge windows over the deck was a stunning view of the Kenai Mountains across the bay, with a dead on view of the Grewingk Glacier (we took a trip across the bay and hiked to this glacier, and kayaked around the icebergs in the lake at the foot of it, remarkable experience!). Pictures truly do not do it justice! The location was good, just a few miles outside of Homer, the spit, and all its amenities. There were neighboring house on both sides (a hundred yards away or so), but still had a very private feeling to the house.

We hiked quite a bit, took some scenic drives ( Head East out of town or up the skyline drive for killer views); we fished for a full day (fast action limits of salmon and halibut); and went on the glacier excursion mentioned above.

I would definitely recommend this house, and we hope to be back to Homer again. What a beautiful place! Thanks Jaime!

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 LOVED our time at NamaStay. The house is sunny and airy and very comfortable. The location is great and the setting is beautiful. The views are stunning--coffee on the porch each morning was incredibly peaceful and a great way to start the day. The house had everything we needed and was the perfect place to spend three days of our 10-day Alaska vacation. Thank you, Jaime!

We enjoyed our stay here. It has beautiful views, close to everything we were doing and very well kept and clean. The bed was comfortable. All positives and not one negative thing did we find.

Just right.

  • 5 of 5

We loved NamaStay! It perfectly embodies the saltiness and the artsiness that is so distinct in Homer. Thank you to Jaime who was flexible and communicative. Everything was clean and pretty and comfortable. The neighborhood is eclectic and fun for walks. The views are remarkable. We hope to be back again someday.

Lots of very nice touches.

  • 5 of 5

This is a small but genuinely nice place with some very special touches. Indoor plants, for instance; beautiful deck with a nice view. Not like a hotel; which for me is a plus. I will stay there again when I return to Homer.

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed Namastay for 2 nights in early Sept 2016. The house was lovely and comfortable, very clean and well-supplied, with fantastic views from the deck. The location was great with easy access to Homer, the Spit and Kachemak Bay. The owner Jaime was very responsive and helpful for questions and suggestions. We were able to enjoy kayaking and hiking in the Bay, some great shopping and outstanding seafood in the short time we spent there. Our only regret was not having more time in this special place. We would be very happy to stay here again.
