5/5 Excellent

Loved it! Incredible views & great family!
We had an amazing stay! The views of the mountains, K-Bay, and the Homer spit were incredible on clear days. The owners were super friendly, very accomodating, and made us feel like family. We stayed for an extended period of time, and the rooms were great for up to four adults and two kids: two separate bedrooms (each with two beds), two full bathrooms, a large living room, and a small but fully working kitchen in case you don’t want to go out to eat every night. It takes about 15-20 minutes to drive down the hill and get to the Homer Spit, but the views from up the hill were incredible. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you!!!

5/5 Excellent

Family friendly
This property was wonderful for our family. The property was quiet, open and the owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Our daughter love the trampoline and other activities out on the vast, well groomed yard. We appreciated having lots of bed space for us and even were able to have a place for a friend that visited one night. The property is a little ways up the hill from town, but everything is so close in Homer. The distance made for a relaxing environment and fantastic view. Highly recommended!

4/5 Good

Very nice, and clean
The view was awesome, owners were very nice and hospitable, I would highly recommend the property

5/5 Excellent

Super clean/comfortable house with a great view and a great host!
Family of 7 visited Homer (what a beautiful place!) for the first time, we are lucky to stay at Leah's house which fits our party comfortably. Nice furnishing and utensils too, Leah is very responsive to our needs and provided a lot of advice on what to do. We highly appreciate the salmon she shared with us so fresh, which her family caught very recently. You could see eagles at a very close distance since the family feed them regularly. We enjoy our stay very much and would highly recommend it to others.
