"My wife and 3 children (7, 11, 13) stayed ~ 3 weeks here. You are up on Skyline Drive overlooking the Bay and the "Homer Spit". The house is GREAT!! Awesome stay. The home is very well appointed. You want for nothing. The view is wonderful. When you step out of the shower...you are looking at the glacier!! Your view is the 2-3 glaciers that are immediately across Kachemak Bay. It is amazing to think that we hiked around Glacier Point and up to the Glacier Lake....there were icebergs floating in the glacier lake. We also did Halibut Cover for lunch. Great trip. My sons and I went king salmon fishing and with only 2 fish we ate for many meals. We went up and hiked the Russian River trail and saw salmon jumping up the stream to their spawning grounds!! Very cool. We also did a fly in bear seeing tour which was stretching my comfort level...but my wife and kids love it!!
Homer is a small town. Very informal and casual. Especially coming from the mid-Atlantic East Coast region.... Jean, hiking pants, boots, and flannel shirts will do. RESTAURANTS are wonderful. Cafe Cup, The Homestead (fine dinner), Twin Sisters Bakery (get the sticky bums), Thai Restaurant (Little Mermaids), Fat Olives (pizza), La Baleine Cafe (breakfast), and Duncan House diner (breakfast) all very good recommendations for dining. Caribou--NO GO
Overall, great place, great house (cabin), great location, great views. Paula was very accommodating. Couldn't ask for a better owner!!"
