House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4 adults,2 children)

A peaceful vacation retreat home located 1200 feet above Homer, Alaska. Sweeping views of wildlife habitat, Kachemak Bay, and the entrance to Cook Inlet with biodynamic gardens, green house. Close proximity to miles of hiking trails..

It has a complete kitchen, washer and dryer, and deck with BBQ grill. We allow smoking outside only. Pets allowed on approval. We have the first windmill installed in Homer a Skystream 3.7 to supply alternative energy for our lifestyles..

The owners are Deborah A. and Michael A. Limacher.

Born in San Francisco, Michael has been in Alaska for ten years after living on the Big Island of Hawaii. Helping to maintain the property, fishing and boating, his love of Homer grows. He has been involved in multi-level therapy most of his life.

Deborah was born in New York. On her 21st birthday, she packed up her VW bug, and with a friend and their dogs, headed for Alaska. Settling in Homer in 1976, she began a 21-year fishing career. Her true love, however, is biodynamic gardening and being with the flowers. She finds alternative ways of healing through flower essences and essential oils.

We invite you to experience the bountiful beauty of Diamond Ridge.

We had a wonderful time and the view was incredible!

  • 5 of 5

The house was warm and comfy. We felt pampered. The view was stunning! The first morning we woke, there was a mouse outside the house eating. He stayed for a couple hours then went on his merry way. The next few days a Yellow Crowned Sparrow came daily to sing for us!

The home was easy to find, close enough to town. It had everything we needed and was quite comfortable. The bedding made me feel like I was at the Ritz!

We really enjoyed our conversations Deborah & Michael! They made us feel welcome and were very helpful & informative about the area. Knew exactly where to go for your interests and places to avoid.

Our stay in their home was the highlight of our trip to Alaska! We would do it again only stay longer!

Everything you need plus one amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Feels like home as soon as you get in the door. Has everything you need for cooking and meals. Includes washer and dryer. Perfectly sized for 2-4 people. Deck with an amazing view of the bay and the owner's garden. When we were there there were two sandhill cranes which seemed to be spending the summer in the owner's yard.

Peaceful Views

  • 5 of 5

Deb and Mike were really wonderful hosts. The place was extremely comfortable, the views were amazing, and the place was the best we could hope for. The rooms were super clean and the beds were great, the kitchen had all we needed, and the deck had great views (as did our room). We got to talk with Deb and Mike about the area and some of the critters walking around. The cranes were around and while on the deck they flew so close I could have reached out to them. Really a great place and so affordable that we'll be trying to stay with them again when we head back to Homer. Thanks Deb and Mike for a great time!

So Much More!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is so much more than what the pictures show. It is so cute and well kept with amazing views and truly beautiful decor. This was by far my family's favorite rental during our 9 day trip to Alaska. Mike was an amazing host and Deb has done a wonderful job decorating the rental. The views from the deck are absolutely amazing! EVERYTHING that you could need is there! Thank you for sharing your beautiful rental and property with us!

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Mike & Deb were wonderful hosts. The house was very well maintained with amazing views! Nice place to relax after a long day of fishing, hiking and sightseeing. Mike & Deb answered any questions we had. The affordability of the house enabled us to do/see more while we were there. It was nice not having to eat out all the time. We had four adults in our party and were very comfortable. We will definitely return next time we visit Alaska! Thanks Mike & Deb for amazing memories!
