Awesome view

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults staying in this beautiful home.We were worried about the space but it was large enough to handle all of us.

Large kitchen & dining area and bedrooms. Loved the hiking trail near the house. We will have great memories of our time in Homer.

Fantastic stay at house in Homer

  • 5 of 5

Almost everything about this house was perfect. The space was terrific. Very comfortable beds which is very important for us. The kitchen was very well stocked. But the most magnificent thing was our view. We loved sitting in the huge great room just to look out the window. The only issues were that the cable TV only had a few channels, not even the news channels. Also, the Wifi was not very strong and did not reach the bedrooms. I hated leaving Homer as this was truly the best accommodations we had during our 2 week stay in Alaska. Thank you, Daniel for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Fantastic Va K

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time, enjoyed the house very much. Everything was clean and well stocked. My one son wanted to buy all the paper goods when we shopped for groceries, but I told him no, it was all there. Thank you for letting this mom win one! We had a family friend accompany us this year and he is still talking about how great it was. My daughter in law (who finds it hard to relax), actually read a book--just for fun, and slept in!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful property with us. No moose came to breakfast this year so we will have to come back for sure!

Anchorage, Alaska

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

This property is a beautiful log house that had nice bedrooms for all in our party. We've stayed there before and really enjoyed it. We only had one glitch and that was that we were not notified before of where the keys were or how we entered the home.

Owner's Response: We, the owners, have addressed the key and entry situation with our guest. We apologize. We are happy that the house was enjoyed, the view is amazing. Sometimes we are out enjoying the great Alaskan experience ourselves, and we were temporarily out of cell phone service. Our fix is to proactively contact our guests before they arrive to ensure a seamless trip. Love Alaska!!

We stayed here at this property on our last visit to AK and absolutely loved it! My two "gourmet" cook sons really enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen, and we all enjoyed eating in one of two dining rooms. A moose came up to the window of the small dining room while we were having breakfast one morning, it was wonderful! It feels secluded but just a short drive to Homer. And what a fantastic view! We are hoping to book this same property again, and I would highly recommend it (except for the dates we want ;)

Owner's Response: We are happy to share our lovely home with you. As life long Alaskans ourselves, we are constantly amazed by the beauty of our State. There is so much to see and do in Homer, or just hang out in the house and enjoy family, friends and the view.
