“Breathtaking views, beautiful house.”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My husband and I, along with our parents, stayed here while visiting Homer in July. While away, this was by far the best place we stayed. The house is up on a hill, and from the living room/dining room there are gorgeous views of the bay, mountains, and glacier. We also enjoyed watching birds hopping around the yard.

The space itself was very clean and comfortable. Being two sets of couples, we enjoyed that each bedroom had its own bathroom, and there was plenty of privacy. There are many maps and guidebooks available in the house to refer to as well. It was quiet and peaceful at all hours.

If you plan to visit Homer, we strongly recommend checking out this Glacier Vista house, you will not regret it!

“We would have gladly stayed for a week”
Reviewed June 18, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our party of four (two senior-couples) really enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of room and everything we needed inside. All appliances and furniture are first-rate. We especially appreciated Jeanette's attention to the decorations and artwork which beautifully represented Alaska. We enjoyed clear skies and sunshine when we visited so we were also able to take advantage of the outside seating. While the view from both the living room and the lawn is wonderful, a five-minute walk up the road presented even better photo opportunities, as well as a chance to observe a browsing moose. The house was easy to find, in a quiet area but just a ten-minute drive to Safeway and Homer's other amenities. Homer, by the way, is a REALLY fun place to visit with lots to do. Our only "complaint"... We could stay for only two nights. This was the perfect way to begin our Alaska vacation!

“Excellent view, excellent host and all you need to feel at home”

A really nice rental apartment with a stupendous view over the glacier and the bay. Contact with Jeannette was always very easy and efficient. She is a perfect host, always available and with a short response time and helpful with tips and suggestions.
The two bedrooms are dark – even with long daytime hours no blackout curtains needed. The matrasses are excellent and hard.
The bathrooms are well equipped and products are provided generously.
The kitchen has everything you may think of and then some more. Such a lot of items available that you just can check in with your fresh grocery and start cooking. A clean gas BBQ is at disposition. We enjoyed lots of hours at the dining table with a beautiful view. We liked it so much that we even took out lunch and dinner to eat “at home” instead of a restaurant. There is an excellent choice of seafood from the fish warehouse on the split – really good king crab legs – as well as fresh oysters which they will open for you for a minimal charge. Safe-u-more – a tip by Jeannette – had excellent local beef (Mc Neill Cannon meats).
We enjoyed our stay at the Glaciervista very much and dream about returning.

“Beautiful, quiet, comfortable and fully stocked”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just a few miles from town so access is easy with a car. Full kitchen, large living area, and two full bedrooms with bath - all were comfortable and clean. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed the outside firepit in the evenings. The kitchen is very well stocked and would work well for up to six people. The owner was close in case we had any issues. I would definitely recommend this quiet retreat in Homer.

“The View! The View! The View!”
Reviewed September 13, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

You walk into the first room and see this big window with a perfect view. You plop into a chair wishing you could stay for the whole summer.. I think the beauty of Homer is partly why you feel so good and understand why so many people chose to stay in Homer or choose to return over and over again.
The rental is clean and Jeanette is a wonderful host.
We had a rainy week and didn't care at all. Just put on the rain jacket and off we went exploring.

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed July 10, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The home was perfect. Decorated nicely and close to downtown Homer and the spit. Darkening blinds were a plus as I am not used to sleeping in the light. Jeanette made us welcome. She even had condiments and coffee. There is nothing worse than having to buy mayo, mustard , ketchup and then having to throw them away.

The view of the water and glaciers was amazing.

“View and accommodations were excellent.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband and I, our son and his wife stayed at Glacier Vista for a week in June. The owner was very helpful and the condo was very comfortable and inviting. Black out curtains were helpful :) because we were there during the summer solstice. I would recommend the Glacier Vista to anyone!
