Why Kevin or Donna Maltz chose Homer

This property is truly unique, a real gem. Best views of Kachemak Bay and probably the whole state... I am not kidding. Located in the prestigious Westwood Estates, this property offers beautiful surroundings, the landscape is stunning scattered with gardens and an emerald green lawn.

The expansive view is of Kachemak Bay and the Homer Spit, down to the sea and out to the Chugach Mountains and glaciers. Enjoy the beautiful meadow, lawn, and gardens featuring domestic and wildflowers.

The Property attracts lots of wildlife and sits in a park-like setting next to state land.

A Memorable Experience is close to the best hiking trails, and only an 8-minute drive to downtown Homer and 15 minutes to the famous Homer Spit where you can catch one of the many Eco- tours, halibut charters, kayaking tours and water taxi to the adventurous Kachemak Bay State Park.

Homer is famous for its art galleries, eateries, music venues, halibut fishing, bear viewing, and its beauty.

What makes this house unique

Amazing views, great location, close to town yet rural, clean comfortable, wonderful for entertaining, exquisite yard

Positively BRILLIANT place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house sits on unobstructed views of Homer, Homer Spit and the ocean. It is very private, cozy, well maintained and the rooms/levels allow for privacy if needed. You'd be crazy not to consider this home for your Homer Vacation!

The Word "Breathtaking" was invented here!

  • 5 of 5

So cozy and comfortable with a great homey feel. Everything was clean and beautiful. I will definitely go back to this haven away from home. The owners were very helpful and organized. I highly recommend this place to my friends and families who are looking for their next adventure. Looking forward to seeing the spectacular views, the eagles, moose and breathing the fresh air!
