We stayed at Sea Lion Cove for two nights but wished we could stay there longer! The view was amazing and the room was so comfortable and cozy. The first night we watched sunset from our window, my husband said to me, we have to come back, this is the best place we've ever stayed.

“Favorite rental location in Alaska … unanimous family vote!”

We stayed In Gary Lyon's Sea Lion Cove apartments for two nights at the end of May 2014… LOVED the view… and very comfortable accommodations… very clean and well equipped. The view is even better than in the photos. Gary was a great host… flexible and helpful with great recommendations about restaurants and fishing charters. The location was perfect with the shops and restaurants in walking distance but privacy and quiet on our deck out back with our view of the ocean, mountains, eagles and otters. We were in Alaska for 12 nights in 7 different rentals and Sea Lion Cove was by far our favorite. We wished we could have stayed here on the Spit longer than 2 nights. We will definitely come back if we have the opportunity and definitely stay at Sea Lion Cove again… longer next time. I highly recommend this rental. We actually rented both apartments for our family of two adults and 4 teenage boys. Thanks Gary for a wonderful experience!

“Unbelievable view on the Spit, with comfort & privacy.”

Both units were just what we wanted. The views were breathtaking even when the weather was bad! Bed very comfortable although I did not use the futon for sleeping. Good bathroom, kitchen, & dining area. Our host was delightful. The best restaurant in town was next door. Keep in mind that it is up a flight of outside stairs. Would definitely stay @ Sea Lion Cove again. Our thanks.

We enjoyed our 5 days here with wonderful views of the mountains and bay and to watch the otters in the sea was a bonus.It had close access to the boat ramp and plenty of beach to walk on each day.The Sea Lion Cove was quiet at night and was very comfortable and clean.

“Wonderful two days”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2013

The picture above is exactly how it looks! It was like having all the beautiful views to ourselves. We were pleased with the cooking facilities and cooked all our meals while there. We had been to Homer before, so we truly used this apartment as a home away from home and relaxed and enjoyed the Spit and the scenery.

“Best place to stay in Homer!”

I have stayed at Sea Lion Cove on several occasions over the years and will continue to do so for several reasons. The boardwalk on which the the Sea Lion is located gives a breathtaking view of the mountains beyond Kachemak bay and is a supremely peaceful place to spend the night, or several nights for that matter. An excellent nights sleep is complemented nicely by an early morning cup of coffee on the private deck and the aforementioned amazing view. Another major plus is the very close proximity to the other boardwalk shops and the famous Homer small boat harbor! Wether or not you plan to fish the bay the location is great but if you are there to fish (which I also recommend) then Sea Lion Cove is hands-down the best place to stay in Homer! Lastly it is the only privately owned overnight accommodations that allow you to step directly off the boardwalk for some beautiful beachcombing where you are practically gauranteed to spot bald eagles, sea otters, seals and even the sea lions for which the cove is named.
