On a Clear Day You Can See Forever

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this comfy home with a cute decor and lots of room in the main living areas. There were lots of games available & Netlix, yay! The appliances were older but still worked except the dishwasher but hopefully it is fixed! We appreciated the fish cleaning station & the empty chest freezer, available if we needed it. We arrived from a cruise so appreciated the washer & dryer but a heads up on the excessive iron in the water that may stain light colored clothes. There is a sign noting that. The other negative is that when we first walked into the bathrooms, the toilets appeared dirty. I realize now that they have an iron issue in the water that may be causing the staining. If there is a way to mitigate those stains, it would help with first impressions. The other issue that occurred was the electricity was out one morning. We were disappointed that we had to go into town to eat breakfast but the even more disappointing issue was that without electricity there was no water pumping from the well & we couldn't flush the toilets or shower. I don't know how often this happens but would advise that they keep some bottled water on hand for these emergencies. All in all it was a good stay with a few issues and a lovely view of beautiful Alaska!

Gorgeous views. Spacious and very comfortable for my family group

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, beautifully decorated home. We loved that the bedrooms could be closed off from the main living area as we all had different bedtimes and waking times. We used it as a home base while touring Homer Spit. There was plenty of parking for our three cars. I would stay there again if I ever go back to Homer, Alaska

Gorgeous views in a comfortable, homey space

  • 5 of 5

The house on Diamond Ridge is easy to find, convenient to Homer. Views are awesome and the deck has a fire pit. Our favorite! Living space is ample and comfortable. Bedrooms are nicely appointed. We enjoyed the nautical decor. Definitely recommend this house.
