Nice location

  • 4 of 5

The owner went out of her way with extra goodies for her guests. We were tired and thirsty and wanted a cup of coffee. We found milk, coffee/tea, orange juice and more when we arrived. The home was clean and had nice accommodations. Thank-you!!

Good with some eeks

  • 4 of 5

Overall my family and I enjoyed our stay here. It was spacious in the living room/dining room/kitchen area and great for entertaining and being together. It is nice sized for having children play. But depending on the age and mobility of children, be warned that there is a staircase just off the hallway which leads back to 2 bedrooms that a little one can easily fall down (again, depending on mobility). We blocked it off with a chair. There is also a big yard that is not fenced and is along a street. Depending on age of kids, supervision definitely required. Great space though!

The owners provided a tv for the living room along with a dvd player and a couple movies. We also purchased an antenna from Ulmer's while we were there and we were able to get about 10 channels.

The location of this house is great- close to everything. 5 minutes to Safeway, there are parks and museums within 10 minutes and it's a quick drive to the Homer Spit and the beaches.

We rented the car that is available to rent along with the house. It was GREAT! Gayle had it waiting for us at the airport which was incredibly convenient. She was a pleasure to communicate with throughout the process, as little things here and there came up.

The biggest downfall was the beds: they were SO hard and uncomfortable. I made the owner aware and she intends to remedy this problem. But be warned that if you stay before new ones are purchased, you will not sleep well.

This was a great house and I really enjoyed my stay with my family and friends.

Very comfortable accommodations

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for two couples. Plenty of supplies in the kitchen to fix breakfasts and even dinner one night. Gayle was great and accommodated a last minute date change. Very much appreciated! Homer is a wonderful little town - very Alaskan! We had great meals at the Little Mermaid, Captain Patties & Cosmic Kitchen. Caught our limit of halibut on a fishing charter.

Spacious Home

  • 3 of 5

This home is large and is nice for many guests (we had 5). It is clean and in a decent location in homer, but fyi it is not close enough to walk to the spit and is about a 20 minute bike ride away. Some things that would make the place more accommodating would be a grill, a firepit/ring/bowl, & outdoor seating/dining area or picnic table. People want to be outside in Alaska and that was a challenge at this house. Wifi was terrible-- almost not worth having as it presented continual frustration to users. Also, no TV in living room and only one with dvd player in a bedroom--no cable or antenna etc. This wasn't an issue for us, but might be for some. Overall, for the value it was a good stay, but I would not stay in another place in Alaska again without a fire-pit. Missed those evening fires!
