Property description

Lovely Larkspur Vacation Rental is an East Hill home, located close enough to downtown Homer, yet far away enough to enjoy the beauty and serenity that surrounds Kachemak Bay. You'll know you've arrived in paradise as you glance out the amazing bay windows toward the grandeur of the surrounding bay and mountains.

Larkspur Vacation Rental is a one level, three bedroom home that contains everything a vacationing family or group needs. This includes a fully-equipped kitchen, three spacious bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living areas, complimentary wi-fi, premium cable HDTV, and a sitting room that can also convert into a fourth bedroom.

Larkspur Vacation Rental feels like a 'home away from home.' It is spacious, quiet, with lovely views from every room. Large windows are found in nearly every room in the house. The bedrooms have room-darkening shades, to compensate for our long summer days.

Extras include a newly constructed front deck facing Kachemak Bay, with loads of comfortable outdoor seating. Also, a new deck out back where we've placed the bar-b-que grill for grilling your daily catch and additional outdoor furniture.

An HE front-loading washer and dryer are available for guests. Laundry soap and dryer sheets are provided. The house is also well-stocked with all paper products, plus spices, tea, coffee, flour and cooking oil to get you started on your vacation.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a local family who fish and teach for a living. My husband, Teague, fishes for sockeye salmon and halibut in Cook Inlet. Betsy teaches at a local elementary school. We've lived on the southern Kenai Peninsula for over 25 years, and are very knowledgeable about the local area and all the fun activities found here. We love to travel, ourselves, and almost always book with VRBO. We're sold on the idea of renting a house while traveling, knowing that it makes vacationing so easy and pleasant. We are more than happy to answer any questions our guests have about Homer, or Alaska. We can help arrange bookings for many of the excellent fishing, hiking, eco-tourism activities located in this beautiful corner of the world. We look forward to meeting you!

Why the Owner Chose Homer, AK, USA:
We chose this property for its amazing views of Kachemak Bay, convenient location to downtown Homer, and the easy access of one level. The home offers lots of space to relax in, and comfortable rooms with easy access to all Homer has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love all the space found in a one-level home, as well as the eye-catching views, the tall ceilings and comfortable surroundings. Every room has some sort of lovely outside view, and seems to 'bring the outside in.' These are the things we really love about this house.
