“Wonderful stay for grandparents”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2013

My parents loved their time at the Roundhouse. They were in Homer visiting their newest grandchild. The location is perfect for people who like to walk--to the beach, the bakery, main drag in town. The view is lovely and it was quiet. And it was very comfortable--a place my family could come so that grandma and grandpa could cook us dinner and we could relax together with our newborn baby.

Stayed June 2012, travelled with family

What a unique place to stay. It was just what we wanted, close enough to be able to walk where we wanted to, plenty of room, very comfortable inside, beds were great, loved the kitchen, lots of hot water, great scenery. A perfect getaway I am from Minnesota and my daughter lives in Anchorage, I wanted to see Homer and my daughter found this treasure. It definitly was the right place to stay. Would highly recommend to anyone.

We stayed at the yurt for 5 days last Spring. It was perfect, great view of the bay, loved the location close to everything, very private it was just like having our own house with a full kitchen. We will stay there again next time we visit

my time spent at the roundhouse was a much needed getaway from my otherwise full time working cite life , it allowed me to pretend for the week as if i had a care free, quite, cozy life with a lovely view and tranquil beach front walks. perfect location to all the necessary places such as store boardwalk, art museums, and my personal favorite stops such as the fringe boutique, and two sisters cafe'.
Just a wonderful time and well worth the price thanks so much johnny and lovely wife cant wait to stay again... ****** much love nessa :)

We stayed at the Homer Roundhouse for 3 nights last August and really enjoyed it. It was very clean and quiet and private. Great to have a full kitchen and to experience a Yurt for the first time, but it was essentially a real house. We had our 5 and 7 year old boys with us and they loved the loft space. The access down to the beach where we could walk for miles was great. There are cool leaf fossils if you head west along the beach and look for the flat sandy rocks poking out of the cliff face or near the face. If you aren't used to the long days in summer in Alaska, make sure to bring a sleeping mask or hat to pull over your eyes for this place. The central dome skylight is great for letting in light, but doesn't help for when you want to sleep. So it goes. The place was charming and the owners were very accommodating and helpful (despite just having gone through some surgery the week before!).

FYI, the homer spit is way over rated if you ask me. If you have kids, don't forget to checkout the Homer Playground; probably one of the best in Alaska outside of Anchorage.

stayed here twice for long weekends, would stay again in a pindrop. such a unique and spacious dwelling. one time with four singles and one time as new parents. both times with the dog. both times spotted moose and eagles.
a very comfortable environment with a fantastic view of the bay. minutes away from the beach, coffee, alaska at its best.
kitchen, bathroom, dining area, all extremely well planned.
u'll leave wondering wut it will take for u to build an awesome getaway yurt yourself. enjoy!

My wife and I stayed two nights while visiting Homer and doing some halibut fishing. The Roadhouse is a yurt which is very unique. The yurt is very spacious and included everything you would need - kitchen, living room, large bathroom, etc. I would stay here again if we return to this part of Alaska. The location is close to town and the "spit" is a short drive. We rate it perfect for our needs and exceeded our expectations.
