Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft bedroom, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-13)

Welcome to the Grand View Retreat Chalet overlooking a spectacular view of Kachemak Bay, Cooks Inlet, Dixon Glacier, Portlock Glacier, Grewingk Glacier, and Homer Spit.

This 5,200 sq. ft. luxurious chalet has 5 bedrooms with attached baths, and a cozy loft bedroom with trundle beds. It is very private and is tastefully decorated, has a large gourmet kitchen, a 60” big screen TV, I pod dock, barbeque grill, 4 decks, 2 Jacuzzi tubs and too much more to list. With two very large living rooms and a gigantic loft, all with spectacular views, it is perfect for special occasions such as family reunions.

Most visitors are taken aback from the breathtaking view of the Alaskan Mountains and nearby glaciers, surrounding Ketchmak Bay. At night you can enjoy the beautiful spectacle of light emanating from the nearby Famous Homer Spit.

The Chalet is located 9 miles from town, but is close to nearby shopping, wine tasting, fine dining, art galleries and museums. Animal enthusiasts will enjoy the safe view of nearby Alaskan wildlife that includes bears, otters, moose, eagles, birds, hares, porcupines and other animals indigenous to the area.

Seafood and fishing lovers will have their fill of Alaskan Halibut, varieties of salmon, rock fish, and clams. Overall this property will allow you to enjoy the awe-inspiring beauty of Alaska with all the comforts of home. Several moose live in the woods surrounding the house and it is very common to see more than one moose from the balcony. They really love the clover right under the balcony.

I promise you just one thing. When it is time to go home, you will not want to leave. But then, you can always come again next year.

Additional amenities: satellite TV, assortment of DVDs and board games, off street parking for 10 vehicles.

Why Prabha Mani chose Kenai Peninsula

Wonderful place for family re unions special anniversaries and landmark birthdays. it is like a home away from your home.

We love fish and fishing so bought this property. Our family gets together here once a year and a spacious home for all including our grand children. We just fell in love with this Chalet.

What makes this house unique

The Views from the living room having our cup of coffee or vine in the evenings. Also the moose family that comes grazing by summer time behind this chalet lovely to watch them from the patio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

all was very good.The house was nice and well equipped. I think the grill is old, more than it was dirty.



But everything else was fine, worked well and we enjoyed it.The views are tremendous.



Thanks

Fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

What a great house! Super nice, clean, comfortable beds, unbelievable views. Kitchen had everything we needed and then some- what a great surprise. We had regular visits from a young bull moose and a mother moose and calf regularly. We caught some fish with a local charter boat company. We walked Homer Spit and admired the boats and shops. We found the people in Homer so friendly!! What a great place.

Great Time for Family & Friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice time at Grandview Retreat with family and friends ... plenty of room to accommodate 5 couples in private bedrooms and children in the roomy loft area. Kitchen and Living room have amazing views and we were able to peacefully watch wildlife ... moose and several species of birds. Only down fall is the drains in sinks and washing machine were backed up from years of buildup so we spent some time cleaning those out and you have to cooordinate showers and using water throughout the house due to the well pump keeping up. But to be expected on that type of system. We had a great time on the spit shopping and eating as well as leaving for Halibut fishing, Soldovia day cruise and Kayak tours. Overall a great time!

Top notch

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house. Clean, well stocked, and had very comfortable beds. Did not disappoint. Only complaint is that the house (like others nearby) is on a well and water pressure is mediocre -- despite 4 baths, it was near impossible for one shower and the kitchen sink to run at the same time.

As advertised, million dollar views out of every window!

  • 5 of 5

This place lives up to all of the good things written about it. We had a multigenerational family grouping in for 7 days and had a blast! Because we were so early in the season, there were a few maintenance issues to be ironed out, but Prahda was right on it! Would recommend this beautiful home to anyone wanting to stay in the Homer area. While it is 9 miles up East End Road, you have a beautiful view of the Kachemak Bay, mountains, glaciers and the Homer Spit. Couldn't ask for more!!!!
