Molly's Family Home
Homer, Alaska, United States 99603
Dog and kid friendly, this is the perfect place to experience downtown Homer with your family, friends or sweetheart! Our favorite restaurants and bars are just a short walk (or drive) away. The house is fully equipped with everything you'll need to enjoy your time in Homer.
You'll have access to the entire house except for the back unit as I live there with Stephen and our small pup, Max; you may see us walking Max in the yard from time to time. Max is a little timid with people at first, but loves other dogs! Please let me know if your dog is not friendly with small dogs.
Relax in our one-story home, nestled in a quiet neighborhood on Calhoun Street. Start your morning off right by brewing a fresh pot of coffee in our spacious kitchen, fully equipped with all necessary cooking utensils and more. Our cozy home has 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The first bedroom has 1 queen bed, and the second bedroom has 1 set of twin bunkbeds and 1 full bed. We hope you take advantage of the newly installed vanities in both bedrooms, which provide extra counter space, storage and a wide sink with running water with large foldout mirrors.
We have a wide variety of board games, books, DVDs, as well as unlimited Wi-Fi for guest use. Please feel free to play the guitar, or take on the challenge of one of our 1000 piece puzzles! Take advantage of the large yard, great for kiddos and dogs alike.

As mentioned, I live in the back unit. We have an entirely separate entrance, similar to a duplex. There is no shared space. I am available as needed, but also greatly respect your privacy. I will greet you upon arrival, but after that you won't see much of me--unless you want to! I was born and raised here in Homer and spent most of my childhood in this house, so please don't hesitate to text/call me anytime with questions (...or to let me know if there's a moose in the yard, not kidding)! I'm more than happy to share my favorite restaurants and local activities with you.
I grew up in this neighborhood, with many of the same families that are still here today. You'll be within a short walking distance to coffee shops, parks, restaurants, art galleries, Homer Public Library, the hospital, Pratt Museum, Alaska Islands & Oceans Visitor Center, and more. We live in a very safe neighborhood; growing up, my family rarely locked our doors (if ever). That being said, I will of course provide guests with house keys.
Other things to note:
We do not provide washer/dryer onsite; the Homer Cleaning Center and Red Laundromat are nearby.
I live in the back unit, and have a pup; there is no shared space though.
- No smoking
- No parties/events
- Check-in is at 4pm, and check-out is at 11am
- Pets welcome on approval! Please clean up after your pet, so we can continue allowing them without having to charge any extra fees. I ask that your pup is kept on a leash when outside and that they're not left in the house unattended, unless crate trained. Our beds and blankets are not for pet use, and no more than 3 pets. Thanks!
-This house is "suitable" for infants and children, in that we have outlet covers, corner guards, and cabinet locks in the kitchen and bathroom. Guest must acknowledge the house is not completely "child-proof;" e.g. there is furniture NOT mounted to walls, and children and infants need to be carefully monitored at ALL times.
We understand that accidents happen! Just please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible, which also means better chances of having your full security deposit returned too.

Great Place for the Price
This was a very nice home in a quiet neighborhood, but the trees and yard made it feel very private. It is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. Great place for the price.
Thanks for leaving the place in such great shape, and for keeping me updated with your arrival!
The Three bears loved it!! Thanks for such a comfy place :)
Quiet and exceptionally clean. Roomier than the pictures let on. My husband, 3 kids and myself had a very pleasant stay. Molly was a very quick response any time I contacted her during whole process.
Glad you guys enjoyed your time here! I could probably work out an earlier check-in time if you guys come down to Homer again, just remind me! Thanks again for being so respectful of the house.
Great Location, Value, Service!
The house is right in town - you can walk just about anywhere you want to go. The neighborhood is quiet, and close to parks and trails. Molly is a great resource for activities, the best places to eat, and other local insider tips. The kitchen had everything needed to do your own cooking, and was stocked with coffee and tea. The beds are comfy, and although there is only one bathroom, each room as a nice little vanity with a sink and mirror, which helped with everyone getting ready in the mornings. I'd recommend this place to anyone!
Thank you! I'm glad you guys enjoyed your time here, it was a pleasure hosting you. Hope to see you again on your next trip down to Homer!
