Overview

Photos and Description of the Homer vacation apartment rental

Owner built on the bluff overlooking Kachemak Bay.

This 6 acre property has a large lawn leading down to the 300 ft bluff where you can pick a salad from the 30 x 72 foot greenhouse. A trail leads through birch, alder, and spruce along the small creek to the bluff where you can smell the sea, watch ravens, eagles, and gulls soar at eye level and view rafts of otters floating beyond the beach.

Close to town and new to VRBO, this custom owner built home will appeal to those who appreciate something special. Window sills and stair rails were hand milled with local cottonwood and there are many other special touches not ordinarily seen in a vacation rental. Visitors will enjoy a very clean, comfortable and private setting.

There is a new 12 inch Queen 'sleep innovations' bed in the bedroom with custom dressers. A fold out queen futon in the living room can accommodate 2 other guests. The owner lives in a separate home 100 feet away and will be available to answer questions, perhaps facilitate your way across the bay, and help make your stay in Homer as enjoyable as possible.

Suitability:
  • long term renters welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Homer has many attractions to entertain visitors with varying interests. Although there is more going on in the summer, winter provides good opportunities also. Our new modern library aimed at Grewink glacier is a welcome place to explore or sit around the fireplace with a good book. The Oceans and Islands Visitor Center offers exhibits and live bird viewing cams with trails leading down to the slough and Bishops Beach. The Pratt museum has outdoor and indoor exhibits that showcase local history. There is a fantastic network of cross country ski trails and a rope tow for downhill skiing and tube sledding at Olson Mountain. Trolling for Winter Kings has become increasingly popular.

In summer, Pier One on the spit offers local theater. The annual shorebird Festival occurs every spring and the Wooden Boat Festival happens in the fall.

Across the bay is the 400,000 acre Kachemak Bay State Wilderness Park which is accessible by boat taxi for those who enjoy hiking among mountains, rivers, lakes, and glaciers. Seldovia and the artist community of Halibut Cove are also easily accessible by boat, ferry, or plane.

Although the Homer Harbor is primarily home to a local fishing fleet there are also many excellent charter operations for bird and sea creature viewing as well as Halibut and Salmon fishing.
