traveler reviews for this homer house rental

A dream come true

Review submitted: June 10, 2014   Date of arrival: May 28, 2014

what a wonderful week we had. The house was just what we expected, clean,updated and ready for a crowd. We had breakfast with a bald eagle every morning right on the front porch. After fishing all day, the veiw was the most beautiful relaxation in the world. This was the trip of a lifetime for my family and it lived up to every expectation we had.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Dear Joann - Thank you so much for staying at our house. It was a pleasure having you all. Gloria and I would like to thank you for being such wonderful guests. We would love to see you again! The Stuarts

Homer party of 10

Review submitted: May 31, 2014   Date of arrival: May 18, 2014

Our family group of 10 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. The house has a tri-level feel, with 3 bedrooms/1 bath downstairs, 2 bedrooms/1 bath/kitchen/dining room/living room upstairs and a quaint den down a short stairway off the living room. The house was wonderfully clean with fresh flowers when we arrived. The photos accurately reflect each room and spectacular views. Our family group ranged from 18-82 and we all congregated around the large dinning room table talking and playing board games looking out at the beautiful bay. The weather was excellent and we spent time out on the deck too. The house was perfect for a large group of 10, we had plenty of room to spread out, the den room has satellite TV w/ DVR and wide array of DVDs available,plus the house has WIFI. I was pleasantly surprised how well stocked the kitchen and house was...coffee, tea, paper towels, soap etc...plus laundry detergent and fabric softener. The washer/dryer are front loading and very spacious and is located up stairs. The owner Doug was very attentive and answered all emails quickly and even came by 1 day to introduce himself. Be aware that there are stairs to every level, including driveway to 1st and 2nd floor, plus stairs to the den...our mom who is 82 did slightly struggle with the stairs, but she had a bedroom on the 2nd floor so once she was up the stairs everything was great! I wholeheartedly recommend this home for families/group of any size and would definitely rent this home again.

Owners response: Thank you so much for your gracious review. Gloria and I would like to compliment you and your family for treating our home like your home! Come see us again....Doug and Gloria

Aleutian Maritime History ALIVE

Review submitted: February 6, 2014   Date of arrival: August 25, 2013

I met Doug and Gloria when my sister and I took an unforgettable trip on the the Alaska Marine Highway from Dutch Harbor/Unalaska to Homer. Doug was the dedicated Naturalist on board. Since the number of passengers on board was small Doug was able to give us his full attention. During this wonderful trip we discovered that Doug has a HUGE background in marine biology, marine history, marine ecology, and Aleutian history ranging from pre-historic to WWII to modern day. My sister and I were mesmerized.

When we arrived in Homer we were met by Gloria, Doug's wife. They took us to their home, now a charming B and B. We were regaled with more stories of fishing in the Homer and northern Pacific, history of the inhabitants of the Homer/Kenai region, and the best food I have ever eaten. And the views were magnificent!

If you are looking for a Homer vacation with opportunities to learn about the Aleutians, WWII, native and Russian history, well you have come to the right place. Not only will you find easy comfort with plenty of privacy, but you will come away with the best Alaska immersion experience available anywhere in Alaska.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: Dear Jan, I remember that trip well. With folks like you my job was so easy. You were so responsive to all that segment of the Marine Highway offered! I just fill in the blanks. I'm looking forward to filling in those blanks for any of our guests who would like me to. Thanks again Doug
