Everybody has written all the benefits on their reviews. I reinforce that Jeanette aims to please and is easily accessible for anything you need. There are even extension cords, a charging station, hdmi cables, music player, binoculars and more. Let me give you some helpful hints to grease the skids on your vacation:
1. Grocery shop after you get to the house and see what's there. Many condiments, cereal, spices, oils, bags etc are there for your use. What a bonus.
2. Eat at Two Sisters Bakery......it's much more than a bakery. Try the rock fish, highly coveted local fish, it's delicious.
3. Fish. Either deep sea (homer fishing.com was a win for us). Daniel is very popular and while a bit gruff, he does catch fish. Or lake fish for salmon.
4. Drive on Bishop's beach and try the local oysters from kachemak bay
5. Go on a bear viewing. Highly recommend Talon Air out of Soldatna (1.5 hour drive from here, do the noon tour). Cost was $350 vs. local cost of $500 on up!
6. If it's sunny and warm, close the wooden blinds in the living room to block the solar.
7. Have an outdoor fire
8. Drive to Ninilchik to see the old Russian Church. Take the old a Sterling Highway Loop to see the more rural areas. If you want to see dip fishing, continue north to Kenai.

We had a lot of trouble with cell phone reception. Not just here.....throughout Alaska. It's part of the deal. Jeanette has excellent wifi at the house with range from the living room to back bedroom.

I hope this is helpful.

“Amazing”
Reviewed July 14, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We got there after a long day of travel. From the moment of opening the door, it was obvious that everything was well thought out. Flashlights on each nightstand . Night lights for walking were well places. The Kitchen was clean and well stocked with Herbs and misc items like coffee and Filters. Without a doubt it was our best choice to stay in Homer. Jeanette was great and I I have to say thank you to her for helping make our stay a nice one.

This is our second trip to this property with our first being 4 years ago. We stayed about a week each trip and loved every minute of it. We travel fairly extensively and have never found a home better furnished with supplies and cooking utensils. Her view out the front windows of her house is breathtaking! She has a day bed in that room with wrap around windows at the front portion of the house that allows you to view Kachemak Bay 24 hours a day. Since the sun never really goes down in June, I spent several nights using the bed and admiring the view. Both back bedrooms have heavy curtains and shut out the light allowing you to sleep in almost total darkness. She has fans in each room to get some circulation if you need it, however it never got to warm. The home is exceptionally quiet with occasional airplane flying over or a car driving by. Jeanette is an excellent hostess and was quick to answer any questions we had. Homer, Alaska is one of my favorite spots of all time and as I drove away I felt a sense of loss. I have recommended this property to several of my friends and hope to make an annual return visit as long as I can. Thanks Jeanette for your hospitality and allowing us to stay with you in your beautiful home!

“Mostly Pleasant Accommodation with an Enjoyable View”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My wife, teenage son, and I rented this place for six days/five nights. We arrived to find it clean and well appointed, with all the amenities that were promised. The lawn was well groomed. The furnishings were great. Jeannette, the owner, was a fine communicator, and very nice. We were surprised upon arrival to discover that this place was only the ground floor of a three-story structure, but that turned out just fine; we had our own private driveway, and the run of the front lawn and outdoor fire pit. We had no noise from upstairs; it was as if we were alone, just as we wanted it. One oddity was to find many leftover items in the bathroom medicine closets and showers as well as the refrigerator; would have preferred those were empty, but not a big issue. At the same time, the owner had stocked the place with plenty of toilet paper, bars of soap, and fresh towels/washcloths of nice quality; that was definitely appreciated. Three disappointments: 1) The TV's mentioned in the rental description were located in each bedroom, but were quite small. 2) The WiFi that was mentioned as part of the rental was very poor in the front room (which is the best place in the house to be due to the view). I was continually kicked off the network when in that room. 3) That front room gets very hot during the day as the sun blasts away, and none of the windows open. The two exterior doors (one on each side of that one room) have no screen doors, so you can't leave them open without getting bugs flying in all over the place. The addition of screen doors would be marvelous!

Wished we could have stayed here longer!. Very comfortable, clean, top of the line kitchen with everything you need to cook meals if you want. Immaculately clean full baths with nice fluffy towels, The bed was the most comfortable one we slept in our entire month in Alaska.Jeanette has put a lot of consideration into the little amenities that make your stay more pleasant ie set of binoculars in window for seeing glacier and wildlife, flashlights by each bedside, menus for near by restaurants, brochures etc.... Best part of our stay was waking up and having our coffee while watching two yearling moose munching on thier breakfast of fireweed right outside sitting room window. The view of the glacier and bay was pretty spectacular too.

“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!
