Once you stay in this private residence in Homer, you’ll find it hard to leave the property. it is strategically located just 2 mi (3.2 km) out of town and surrounded by the glaciers and mountains. The fact that the property is located next to a small babbling brook is also a bonus. Because then the guests can host a delightful evening sing-along or camp near the house. At night, rest on the new queen-sized mattress with soft sheets, extra pillows, and room-darkening curtains. In the evening relax with a glass of wine on the spacious private deck and enjoy the gorgeous everchanging view of the surrounding area.

Though pictures alone are enough to tell you why this gorgeous 600 square feet (55.74 square meters) property with stained concrete floors with in-floor heat, leather furniture, and a private hot tub is the ultimate choice, that won’t be enough without telling you why. The property sits on the bluff 550 feet (167 meters) above sea level, which means a beautiful view of Kachemak Bay and the Kenai Mountains will be there every time you wake up. Not only that the premise also offers waterfront views and gas fireplace, but also two LED flat-screen TVs, a private porch with gas a barbeque grill, and a fire ring.

It’s hard to come up with a better way to enjoy afternoons in Homer than on the deck of this unique property, reading a book with the mountain as your view. Planning to travel to Homer with a large group? No problem! The chalet and cabin are open to renting as well. The large private deck is perfect for listening to the birds chiming and hanging out. The upstairs loft has comfortable separate beds that are suitable for kids. Another thing that guests like about the house is its location. It’s a quick drive to town but still gives you privacy and serenity. Make use of the available soft tub to reinvigorate yourself after a day of pounding the pavements.

We agree that the best nights in Homer are spent next to the fire pit with a warm beverage in hand. That’s why this spacious log home makes it to this list. It has a nice fireplace and an open-air deck facing the mountains and water. The loft comes furnished with a queen-sized bed and ensuite bathroom. The room above the stairwell is appointed with two twin beds. When you step into the kitchen area, you’ll find that the pantry is well-stocked. The house is also built with large windows so guests can enjoy the ever-changing hues of the sky. In fact, don’t be surprised to see moose walking through the yard, eagles flying around, and even sea otters swimming - from the windows!

A couple’s retreat is perfect in this super cozy yurt sitting on the hill above Homer, where you may witness the spectacular sunrise. The yurt is far from being primitive for it is equipped with running electricity and a rustic kitchen with freezer, toaster oven, dishes, coffee, tea, and drinking water. Guests will also experience a different kind of bathing experience for the bathroom is a wash house adjacent to the yurt with a shower and incinerating toilet.
