Located on the World Famous Homer Spit
About Konna Raub
We are a military family that has decided that Alaska would be a great place for our next adventure. With 7 kids everyday was an adventure. Now that they are grown I had to find a way to get them all home at one time and I know that Alaska will be what brings us all together again. Until then, we invite you to stay in our cabin, we would love to have you!
Why Konna Raub chose Homer
This property is right in the heart of the Homer Spit. People who take charters usually start their mornings on this particular boardwalk for so many reasons, from the charter office, the Shore Brew espresso shop, and the Boardwalk Bakery just to name a few.
What makes this Cottage unique
The cabin resembles the inside of a ship (hence the name, The Wheelhouse) and it feels so appropriate when you hear the waves just outside your door lapping on the shoreline. The view from the cabin amazing. It is what you will fall asleep and awake to each day. Your will even catch a glimpse of a gorgeous bald eagle sitting on one of the rooftops or an otter floating by at almost any hour so have your camera ready!

Great location on Homer Spit
Very nicely decorated and equipped. Amazing to step outside on deck and enjoy beautiful views and activity of Homer Spit. Would stay again for sure. Only surprise was access to upper room is from outside and not any stairs inside lower unit. This is minor but potentially important if young children planned for upper room.
What a great trip the kids and I had for a long weekend! Location and hospitality were amazing. We can’t wait for next year!!
Wayyyyy above and beyond!!!
Our experience was far better than anything I could imagine. Konna so amazingly helpful and pleasant. Not to mention that she makes great coffee drinks (comes free with the rental)! I have stayed at many different spots in homer and this was by far the best overall experience that I/we have had on the Kenai Peninsula. Without hesitation I strongly recommend.
A stay on the boardwalk
Excellent property, wonderful location next to dinner options and coffee shop. And an awesome view!
Amazing views, great location
We loved staying at the Wheelhouse! It was charming, well decorated, clean, and the fruit basket/snacks was a very nice touch! The weather was awesome, we enjoyed the sunshine and some drinks on the upper deck. The location on the boardwalk was perfect for breakfast and shopping around, as well as quick access to the harbor.
Great views, cute space!
This is a clean, cute rental right on the spit. We had so much fun sitting on the deck, playing on the beach, eating ice cream next door! We would rent here again.
Thank you for your kind review. We are glad you had fun and we would love to have you stay again!
