The property, located on the ocean looks across to the Islands and Seldovia and out to Mount Augustine, up Cook Inlet. The yard is literally on the edge of the bluff with a safety fence around it. The ocean breeze forms a mosquito free environment.

The house has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths and can sleep 6 in separate beds or 8 full capacity. Close to downtown Homer, many restaurants and shopping. Just 6 miles to the Homer Small Boat Harbor and the Salty Dawg Saloon.

The house is well supplied for your comfort and affordable holiday.

About Pete and Debra Wedin

Captain Pete and Debra have always been congenial hosts, and Alaskan hospitality comes easily to them. And it is the same when it comes to the ocean and its resources. They have always lived in close proximity and have a history of boats and fishing.

Pete and Debra Wedin purchased this house in 2000

Why Pete and Debra Wedin chose Kenai Peninsula

Close to the highway and close to town, Anchor Watch is a lovely little slice of Homer Alaska, a homey comfortable place to relax and watch the boats and floatplanes and an occasional helicopter go by.

The ocean breeze keeps the mosquitos at bay. Birds and wildlife abound and it is a great place to relax after a long day on the water.

What makes this house unique

There are many lodgings in Homer but this property is close to the highway and close to town and has a fantastic view and lovely southern exposure. From its location right on the Sterling Highway it is easy to find and convenient to Homer town center and beaches.

Unobstructed beauty

  • 5 of 5

I have spent what feels like more than my fair share of time in this home - it's just that magical. From waking up to the sun splashing color across the bay to watching it set over volcanoes, basking the scene with alpenglow; listening to the surf and studying the pulse of the tides; watching eagles glide by and searching for whales' spray on the horizon; this location is captivating and breathtaking.

Add to that the home itself, which is conveniently located just on the edge of town - you could easily bike downtown if you wanted to. The walls of that house have gathered and sheltered hundreds of loved ones, usually feasting on bounty from the waters just out the window. The kitchen will produce wonders and the beds restful slumbers. Ample parking makes the whole shebang feasible for whatever experience you look to create - sizeable or secluded.

I could not give this property a more enthusiastic review. If I could, I'd scoop this haven up for myself - alas, it is now a gift to be shared with the public! Enjoy and cherish the space, you're not going to forget it.
