In my humble Realtor opinion, Old Town Cottages West is the coolest project to hit Homer in years. This 10-unit pocket community is tucked right into the heart of historic Old Town Homer. When they say location is everything in real estate, this little community got it exactly right: strolling distance to the beach, nearby walking trails, close to Homer’s best year-round restaurants, and easy driving or biking access to Homer’s shops and services.

Excellent location aside, the developer of this lot situated each cottage to maximize southern exposure and privacy. Large, well-placed windows invite views of Kachemak Bay and allow the sunshine to pour in. The homes are painted with modern exterior colors and have timeless Dutch doors so that you can let the ocean breeze drift in on those epic summer days.

Inside the cottages, you’ll find bright and airy living spaces. High ceilings make the living areas feel grand and luxurious. Well-designed kitchens with modern appliances are clean and inviting. Living rooms with built-in shelving and warm gas fireplaces add functionality and warmth. One of my favorite features is the modern tiling and fixtures in the bathrooms. I feel like it will make getting ready in the morning a luxury.

Another favorite feature is the skylights that open. Different units have them in different places, for example, the Coho Cottage has one in a bedroom. I imagine lying in bed and watching the northern lights on a dark winter night all cozied up in a fluffy duvet.

Prices start in the $400’s and currently there are two cottages on the market: The Betty Jane, which is the smallest at 838 square feet, and the Erin, which is the largest at 1,390 square feet. To find more information about the cottages visit: or call me at (907) 299-5909.
