traveler reviews for this homer house rental

Amazing views and wonderful location.

Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: August 14, 2014

We had a wonderful time and the view is truly a "million dollar view". The house was so comfortable. We had eight people and never felt crowded. Doug and Gloria had the house in such wonderful condition and are very gracious hosts. We look forward to staying with them again next year.

Recommended for: families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Owners response: Dear Randy and family - Thanks so much for the wonderful review. We would love to have you back again for another visit. Gloria and I are very happy we we're able to spend some time with you earlier this spring. Our friends the Bauers mentioned they had met you on there nightly walk....said hello........Doug and Gloria

Simply Awesome!!

Review submitted: August 7, 2014   Date of arrival: July 28, 2014

After our cruise in the Inside Passage, we drove down to Homer, AK, and stayed at this awesome Homer house. Renting the place was simple and Doug was very kind. Once we arrived, we found the home to be very nice and clean (barefoot only -which was great). The place was stocked with everything you need and more - Gloria put 2 vases of fresh flowers to welcome us and it stayed beautiful for all 4 days and she also made delicious homemade jam which the kids absolutely loved (and my sister could not help but to pack along a jar of it to bring to our next stop in Willow, AK - while in Willow and eating the jam Gloria made, we kept talking about how wonderful the Homer house was and how nice Gloria was when some of our group met her). The view from the deck was just simply breathtaking. I wish i could add some photos here to show the view, but i have not found a way - however, words can not possibly describe the beauty. We visited Homer Spit - watching people fish or clean their catch of the day was interesting. We did the Trails End Horse Adventure with Mr. Mark which was the best ever horseback riding. Some of us went over to Halibut Cove which was also a great experience since the scenery was again something you cannot find anywhere else. But at the end of the day, coming home to this Homer home was the best for our large group - very accommodating all the way around and definitely home away from home. We have been to many places and rented many VRBO home, the kids et al now voted this the BEST!! Many thanks to Doug and Gloria for sharing their home with vacationers like us.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing

Owners response: Dear Mimi - Thanks for such a nice review. It was such a pleasure for Gloria and I to have met you. We have had wonderful clients this season and are looking forward to next season. We would be honored to have you and your family or friends stay with us again. ps would love to have your egg roll recipe....Doug and Gloria

A great rental in Homer!

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: July 8, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Doug and Gloria's! Upon arrival, we were met by wonderful baked goods and homemade jam - delicious! The house was just as described... and very well maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed, and more. The Jacuzzi was enormous - a real respite after a day of fishing.. Doug and Gloria could not have been more helpful, even guiding us as we planned our trip... making wonderful suggestions of what to see and do.
We highly recommend this property... and Pete the Eagle (and his friend Baldy) are just a bonus!

Owners response: Dear Liz and Jim - Thanks so much for staying with us. It was my pleasure to help you plan your Alaskan trip. I love this state and want everybody coming into it to have a wonderful time..Hopefully we will see your neck of the woods soon. The Halibut is so fresh and is a real treat for us...Doug and Gloria Stuart
