nice place.

Missing a few things in the house. Beds and bedding very comfortable! The owners very helpful with setting up a cruise for us. We had 6 staying in the house.

A Nice Rental

  • 4 of 5

The rental is in a very good location and was very comfortable. It was clean and we heard from Caleb throughout our visit. There wasn't dishwasher soap for the dishwasher (which I'm sure Caleb would have brought over, but our timing to ask for it was goofy--we never asked) and some of the soap dispensers were out, but we worked around it! I'm fully confident they would have replenished everything, had we asked.

One negative for us was that there were no curtains in any of the bedrooms, only blinds. Living in Alaska, we're somewhat used to the ever-present daylight in the summer, but we still had to MacGyver some room darkening, especially for our boys. The master bedroom was especially bright with the beautiful windows above the bed. Bring a sleep mask and you'll be fine, but something to be aware of!

We really enjoyed staying at this townhouse and were very happy with how kind everyone was. The playground just up the road is AMAZING!

Annual Family Halibut Fishing Trip

  • 2 of 5

I must say this is the first time I've used VRBO to rent a vacation home. After reviewing all the listings offered in the area which I was interested in, I chose this property. It seemed to offer the space, amenities, and area we were looking for. When we arrived at the property, it was very nice, location was excellent. Upon reading the information sheet from the property owner, it stated there was no cable/satellite service, only netflix! No where in the property listing did it mention that was not an option at the property. The owners do offer internet service, however, when we entered the passcode, it said it was invalid. We contacted the caretaker and were told, the previous renters had used up all the data, and they would have to contact the internet provider to add data. After 36 minutes the data plan was exhausted, again! After numerous calls, expressing our frustration, we were told that is all they could do for us, at the time. We were not on a vacation to sight-see, we caught the fishing charter at 6am each day and back by 4. That was the purpose of our trip.

The property does not offer a washer/dryer, and in our 5-day stay, we had to make a trip to the laundromat twice to wash towels. There was a total of 6 bath towels, 6 washcloths and 4 handtowels. Unless, you want to dry off with wet towels, or don't plan on showering , daily, either bring your own towels, or spend time doing laundry.

In the description, it states the great views it offers from the balcony. I thought, awesome, I could have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, and enjoy the views. Well, all you see are the neighbors broken down play set, a trampoline and some trees, nowhere from the property can you see any views of the spit, mountains or anything of "wow".

Overall, the stay was pleasant, the layout of the house was great, and the house was very clean and well maintained.

Pros: Location

Lay-Out

Price

Great restaurants and coffee house within walking distance

Cons: No Cable/Satellite TV

Poor internet service

No Washer/Dryer

Lack of Towels

Terrible Views

Upstairs bathroom, shower only and extremely small, even for a petite person

No clocks or alarm clocks anywhere in unit

Upper floors are wood planks, and you can hear EVERYTHING downstairs, a whispering conversation, using the restroom, even tip-toeing.

Homer is simply an amazing place...and no wonder why National Geographic rated it the #1 Wilderness Town in America! Incredible scenery, a well established arts community, amazing food, diverse culture, and wilderness activities...it's all here. Don't come for a night...you will be disappointed you did... Come for a week!
