Why Patty Horne chose Millers Landing

This cute cabin will get you away from the busy Spit and Town but close enough everything is a 5 minute drive away. There is private beach access and a lovely beach to spend time beach combing and tide pooling.

                                                                My second time there. Good---very comfortable with a great view. Good value for the price. Toyo stove kept it very warm. Very good location for the spit and "downtown" Homer.

                                                                Not so good--wifi didn't work...something about an overdue payment. When playing a DVD in the DVD player, the TV would basically shut off/go black and then randomly turn back on again. The dishwasher wasn't draining properly and had a very bad smelling layer of water in the bottom.


                                                                hattie w.

                                                                This was a very nice cabin. Good location just a 5 min drive to the spit. We saw a moose on our short drive!

                                                                The only thing was the owner said they provided one roll of toilet paper but there wasn't any. Luckily we had some because we had been camping.

                                                                Beautiful view but needs some checking into before you commit

                                                                patricia l.

                                                                Ultimately, we enjoyed our time in this space. There is a kind of privacy that is nice. However there were a number of difficulties too. Remember there is no internet or cable. When we arrived, the DVD was not functioning.Owner was quick to resolve this! Things that were difficult: only a couple of towels, no mirror or sink in the bathroom (just toilet and shower). No toiletries such as soap or laundry soap. When we arrived, no dryer, but within a couple of days after we requested one was installed. We were provided one roll of toilet paper and the expectation was for us to purchase more. There is one external unit for heat, but when requested, a space heater was provided for the bedroom. Beds were not particularly comfortable and it is one room, so little privacy. Kitchen wsa adequately stalked with dishes, but there is only a toaster type oven for cooking.

                                                                We would not choose to stay here again, but can see that it is still a nice place to stay. Perhaps many of the issues we had will be worked out for the next guests.

                                                                Owner's Response:

                                                                Thank you for your review and comments. Our listing on VRBO lists very specifically that we don't have WiFi, but we are very sorry for the miscommunication. Unlike hotels vacation rentals are not typically stocked with toilet paper and toiletries, again we are very sorry for this miscommunication. I wish we would have known that our cleaning crew had not fully stocked the rental with enough towels, there should have been at least 10 there. We do advertise as a one bedroom cabin that sleeps up to 5. You were very kind during your stay and we knew that you would be giving the cabin a not so favorable review. We do hope that you enjoyed Homer and your visit with your daughter.

                                                                a nice little cabin in Homer with a view of kachemak bay from the house. very cosy and comfortable. Perfect for a couple and kids with a beautiful yard in the front. Very close to the spit and the town. Property was well maintained with a very good customer service.

                                                                Very nice stay!

                                                                My boyfriend and step-son stayed at Shadow Star while in Homer for a wedding. It was a very pleasant and private stay for the few days we had in Homer! There is a huge lawn with a beautiful view of the ocean and mountains (especially good because we were there on a clear day :)). There is much privacy and it's a very short walk down a nice trail to the beach where we took both morning and evening walks. Away from the hustle and bustle of the spit, but only five minutes away to both down town and the spit. However, if you are looking for two bedrooms this might not be the place for you but in the one sleeping room there is a comfy queen and king size bed. It has all the amenities that one would need including coffee maker, washer/dryer, and toaster oven :) Everything was clean and we were able to have our own private getaway with a beautiful view right close to town. I highly recommend staying here especially for the cost! You don't have to be jammed in next to a lot of people and can enjoy the serenity. :)
