Manager info

About: I’m a lifetime Alaskan and I’ve enjoyed a remarkable time growing up in this state. I've had countless wonderful memories living in this home and have enjoyed the bounty of this beautiful area. I'm looking forward to offering the same experience to others. Homer is an incredibly beautiful place with friendly people and many enchanting things to do. I hope you enjoy my home and your time here as much as I do. Camai (pronounced cha-my and is a Yupik word for 'welcome')

Why Homer, AK, USA:
Our family enjoys nature, boating, fishing, and camping and Homer offers all of this in a fantastically beautiful setting so it was a gift to settle here. There are bike and hiking trails throughout the Homer area that are close by.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The view of kachemak bay, the mountains, glaciers, and the ever-changing sky are what attracted us to this spot. It's close to town and also a short trip above us leads to many beautifully forested areas. I love to be in the yard and especially enjoy tending to the flower gardens. The house itself has an open floor plan, which feels spacious and is great for entertaining.
