Parking is free and available in front of the boardwalk where the apartment is located. Car transportation is necessary to get around Homer, so a car is recommended but taxis are also plentiful. Guests have stayed here and easily used taxis to get around for their stay. For example, round trip to the grocery store is ~$40 by taxi. However, the Spit has all restaurants and shopping within walking distance if that is more your speed.
