                                                        Stunning vista and yard & deck, with flowers, visiting sand hill cranes, and a spot for roasting marshmallows. Inside, the home was open, well-maintained, and full of beautiful objects and art. Wouldn't be ideal for very young kids, but our family of four (with a 7 and an 11year old) couldn't have been happier. We loved our retreat, aptly named Heavenly Ridge!

                                                        Tosha S.

                                                        Deborah and her husband were nice at times but made my stay very uncomfortable. They stay in a camper trailer on the property and view everything!!! I would receive text messages often that I was doing something wrong. It was silly things like, take your boots off, don't use dryer sheets, don't clean your fish here. I would have felt much more comfortable if I did not feel like I was constantly being watched and judged. Also, when I asked what I should do with my trash I was told to take it to the dump. Also, the upstairs bathroom does not have a curtain and the neighbors upstairs often times got more of a "view" than they had bargained for. But, the house is beautiful and it has an awesome yard and a breathtaking view. Overall, I probably won't rent this again.

                                                        Hello,It is not our policy to be safeguarding our home,but when we look out and see a person running with flames,it's alarming! Apparently,Tosha burned the utensils in our brand new grill because she didn't open it before lighting it.When we went over to check out the situation,,her husband was rude to us.They paid for 3 but had a child we weren't told about and there were often extra people around.I felt we had to ask them about the boots as they were cleaning fish right outside our porch which left flies for days. We go out of our way to accommodate yet give folks their privacy but we were very uncomfortable with these folks in our home! I would not recommend them as guests even though they did leave the house fairly clean except for finding lots of candy in the dryer and rug! Had Tosha mentioned the curtain,we would have remedied the situation.The husband told us that they had a lot of garbage and asked where the dump was so we told them where it was.Otherwise,we always take care of the garbage.We would never just tell folks to take their garbage to the dump!Virtually,everyone who has rented our home has loved it so I am sorry that Tosha wasn't able to.

                                                        Beautiful Homer!

                                                        mike o.redondo beach, ca

                                                        All in all, a good stay at this modest home. Beautiful views of the bay, and lots of flowers on the property. A moose walked onto property our last night at about 830pm which was fantastic! The house has a nice downstairs. The updstairs bathroom was basically off limits due to malfunctioning toilet, so essentially this is a one bathroom home. The water quality out of the faucet was great. The home kitchen lacked the full essentials of cooking utensils.

                                                        We are a 2 bathroom home.The upstairs bathroom had a low flush toilet which needed to have extra water put in to flush fully.A container was provided but due to the confusion around using it,we have replaced it with an ordinary toilet that flushes properly.The kitchen is provided with pots and pans and all the dishes and utensils needed but will go through my inventory again and make sure that nothing was removed and all is provided.Thank you,Deborah

                                                        Mike and deb's home on Heavenly Ridge, was indeed, heavenly. The views from the house are spectacular...Homer and the Spit in the distance, the expanse of the bay with the mountains and glaciers...breath-taking! Flowers abound everywhere...very serene and quiet. The house and amenities were clean, the only draw-back was the upstairs bathroom; the shower really isn't usable, and the toilet is marginal. I would list the house as a two bedroom, one bath.

                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                        Thank you for your review.We have replaced the toilet and will have the shower upstairs fully functioning for our future guests.We assumed that the downstairs bathroom,being newly renovated with beautiful custom tile work would be used for showers and the upstairs bathtub would be used for baths only but have found the need for another available shower so will have that installed.Thanks,Deborah

                                                        We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. The view of ocean and mountains is spectacular. Deborah and Michael were very welcoming. The house is their year-round home, so it is well stocked with appliances, utensils, washer/dryer, grill etc. The house was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. It has a lovely wrap-around patio great for meals or just enjoying the view. The yard was very well maintained and full of blooming flowers. We will definitely stay there again during our next visit to Homer.
