Welcome to Between Beaches, an exceptional Alaskan destination where you can watch the sun rise over one beach and set over the other. Visit and take in spectacular views of misty bays, lush islands, and snow capped mountains without standing in their shade.

Our hand-crafted beach cabins are located on MacDonald Spit, a 30-minute scenic water taxi ride from Homer across magnificent Kachemak Bay.

Only steps away from either sandy beach where otters play and eagles soar, you may choose from a variety of activities, including sea kayaking, fishing, hiking, and wildlife viewing. Kachemak Bay is rich in sea life and renowned for whale watching, while birders will thrill over the visitation of migratory birds. Round out your day with lazy beach combing, searching for sea stars in the tide pools, and more. Kayaks and row boats are available and included in your stay. 

Feel like exploring the local scene? Check out historic and charming Seldovia, where you can enjoy a meal, browse the shops, or depart for an exciting halibut fishing trip from the harbor. Come and stroll through our new art gallery (which many pieces are ocean and wildlife inspired) and view the many art installations throughout the property.

Here at MacDonald Spit you can whale watch from your pillow, and drift asleep to the sound of the surf. Spend your days playing, then settle in for the evening with a cozy beach fire underneath the setting sun. It’ll be an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime.
