“Sea Gypsy is a Charmer!”
Reviewed August 17, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Location of this charming home is ideal - close to a couple of restaurants and a bakery/coffee shop! It's also close to the beach, and there's a Safeway and a laundromat nearby too. The house was very clean and we had plenty of linens. The upstairs is cheerful and sunny, with a large living area with TV, bedroom with a queen and single bed and a full bath. The french doors look out towards the mountains and ocean - partial view. There's a balcony at this level, too. Downstairs is a similar bedroom and bathroom with kitchen and eating area. Darker, but still very nice.Kitchen doesn't have dishwasher, but that wasn't a big deal.
We could have used more powerful light fixtures in the first level, but it wasn't a big issue either.

“Once in a lifetime ”
Reviewed July 18, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We had 2 couples in our party for a once in a lifetime trip to Alaska. We stayed at the sea gypsy for the 1st half of our trip. My husband said it best when he said "this place is adorable". The place had many comforts of home. It was right in town within walking distance of the beach, restaurants and shopping. We even had a baby moose walk through the yard twice!
The only pitfall was we expected two king size beds and the beds had been updated and replaced with a twin and queen in each room. Sleeps more people in the end if that's what you are looking for. The owner also did her very best to make sure we were happy.

“Great cottage near Bishop's Beach”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed at the Sea Gypsy on recent visit to Homer with family. Great location. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms plus two sitting areas and kitchen were great for our family of four with two teens. Quick walk to Bishop's Beach, the Islands & Oceans Visitor Center, Beluga Slough, and downtown shops. It was a good base for exploring Homer area.

Wonderful location close to beach and restaurants. Bedroom upstairs with bath and living area and balcony and bedroom downstairs with bath and small dining/living room. Futon sofa beds need to be replaced but they are okay for sitting. Overall a great place. Would highly recommend.

The unit was very clean, exactly as advertised. We needed an early arrival time, and Sheryl bent over backward to oblige. The Sea Gypsy is within walking distance of several restaurants. If you want quiet and access to the local beaches, this is the place for you.
