“almost Dreadful”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent 4 nights here. Never again.
An apartment should have someplace to sit down to eat besides the sofa in the combined living room/kitchen. or the floor, There were only 3 of us, so we were all able to sit on the sofa to eat meals.
Pots and pans were pathetic. Utensils, too.
I was never really sure that the bedding was clean. Dingy is the best word to describe the bed linens and towels, which were large but very thin.
Overpriced.

I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay. We purchased 8 oversized organic cotton towels for the vacation rental, you are the first person to comment that they are too thin. It is important to me the linens and towels are of highest quality with an ethical consideration to the environment. I will look into this right away.

It is true there is not room in the apartment for a dining table. This is also clearly visible in our pictures of the apartment and kitchen/living room. I am sorry to hear you expected otherwise and were uncomfortable because of this. We take your feedback seriously.

I assure you the bedsheets are cleaned for every guest. Our prices may seem high but we are competitive to every other place to stay on the Spit in Homer. The cost of realestate is high on this unique land formation. The convenience to the boat harbor and the fact you are literally sleeping over the water at high tide, is not a low-priced location. I suggest to stay in town or even a bit outside of town if you would like to have something more affordable.

Only two people have left reviews on flipkey but we have almost 20 happy reviews on other sites.

“Amazing view”
Reviewed 15 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This mini-apartment had a view that could not be beat. The balcony, one bedroom and the living room overlooked the ocean, and we could hear waves the entire day. The location felt remote but we were close enough to shops and restaurants such that we walked or rode bikes much of the time and only rented a taxi if we were going somewhere more distant. The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was big enough that we didn't feel crowded. They provided a coffee maker, which was super convenient, especially since we brought our own coffee...for coffee drinkers, you know this is a big convenience and money saver.
