vacation rental description

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 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. There is a fold out queen futon in the living room to 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.

I usually do not write reviews, but this place is very nice and the owners are great. We will be staying there again on our next visit to Homer. Thanks, M & M

Wonderful flat!

Review submitted: August 6, 2014   Date of arrival: August 5, 2014

My husband and I came here for 2 nights late July 2014. The booking process was simple. Steve left easy directions. The property is perfect for a couple. Very comfortable beautiful place. And the grounds and greenhouse are inspiring! Had a fabulous dinner with the veggies from it. Very quiet as well. Thanks Steve and Robby. We will send friends and we will be back! T and C

We visited the first time in Alaska and just fell in love with Homer town.
It is very peaceful and cozy feel like my home, Northern California!
We really enjoyed staying this home because the owners are caring and friendly people and specially their organic vegetables in their green house.
It was Amazing place!
We honered to be the first guests.
Definitely, going back to this place!!
Thank you again for being a wonderful host!!
