About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Beautiful views of Kachemak Bay and the mountains nearby. This quaint, little cottage has everything you need and is walking distance to most of Homer. Moose are often seen browsing in the yard or nearby. The bright bedroom has a queen sized bed, and upstairs is a large flat screened TV and chairs for relaxing. There is a queen sized murphy bed upstairs for additional sleeping. Full kitchen also has great views of the ocean and mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Life long Alaskan- family has lived in Homer and owned independent bookstore here since 1978. I play in an African Marimba Band (Shamwari) and also play French Horn in the Kenai Peninsula Orchestra. My husband and I own 2 dogs and love x-c skiing and hiking with them whenever possible. We have kayaked and explored our local bay and beaches nearby. I can be found most days 2 blocks away at the Homer Bookstore.

Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
We wanted a home my dad and stepmom could come visit and be close to us, plus our home is at a higher elevation and there are days in the winter we wanted to be able to stay closer to town in case of bad winter storms.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the brightness of this home and the fact that it is so close to most of the shopping and restaurants and movie theatre in town.
