Upstairs apartment was spacious and had all the features we needed, and some. Full kitchen, comfortable beds. It was quiet and near to Homer by vehicle. The views from inside through the large windows and from the large deck are spectacular..

The lower level unit was very comfortable, lots of extra blankets which we appreciated. View of the mountains from out front was awesome. Only issue was that you could hear the folks in the upper unit walking about and showering --

A Homer Alaska Vacation Rental Cabin with an Eagle's Eye View Experience the majestic view of mountains and ocean from the privacy of this beautiful, cozy, wood-interior home on Baycrest Hill. Formerly owned by More a ship pilot, this was the perfect lookout to watch for ships on their way to the Homer Spit. You too can watch fishing boats troll for salmon or fish for halibut, eagles soar by, and sometimes see Mama and baby moose meander through the yard from one of 2 units available. Both have full-service kitchens, stocked with all cookware and dishes, toaster, blender, microwave, seasonings, coffee, tea, hot chocolate; full baths with shampoo, conditioner, hairdryers, Wireless Internet, Satellite TV, VCR, laundry facilities, iron and ironing board. Each unit has its own entrance. Ship Captain's View is private, yet easily accessible. It's a 3 minute drive to downtown Homer or you can enjoy the walking/bike sidewalk that extends from the Scenic Viewpoint, past Ship Captain's View and on through downtown Homer. No pets please, in consideration to those who are allergic to them. Outdoor smoking only. Less
