Molly Bowen, your host!
I was born and raised here in Homer, Alaska. I've moved away several times, living in Colorado and the Netherlands for extended periods of time. My most recent adventure was a solo-backpacking trip through Eastern Europe for 3-months, where I experienced many different travel accommodations-- through Couchsurfing, Airbnb, and many, many hostels. You'll find a lot of international books & decorations in the house, which somewhat reflects the past few years of my life. I live in the back unit with my boyfriend, Stephen, and our small pup. I keep to myself for the privacy of guests, but am also happy to answer any questions, or just chat! It's up to the guests how much, or how little interaction they want. During the summer, you can find me waiting tables at Little Mermaid, a favorite restaurant for Alaskans and visitors alike, that is only open 4 months out of the year!
My fondest childhood memories are bound to this house. Once my sister and I reached the age where we needed separate rooms, my parents bought a 3-bedroom house right around the corner, on Lee Drive. They've held onto this house as a long-term rental for the past 10 years; this winter, I took on the challenge of remodeling it for a vacation rental. Our neighborhood has always felt safe and welcoming, plus we can't get any more centrally located! Perfect home-base for all of what Homer has to offer, and most of it is within walking distance.
I look forward to hosting you, feel free to contact me with any questions.
