Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Seward - Sea Star Cottage

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

DO NOT MAKE ANY PAYMENTS THROUGH WESTERN UNION

Built in 1920 and remodeled in 2012, Sea Star Cottage is a charming family get away in historic downtown Seward, Alaska. The cottage is ideally located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, galleries, and the Alaska SeaLife center. Marine wildlife tours and fishing charters depart from the boat harbor less than a mile away. The view from the living room is of Resurrection Bay and the mountains beyond. Behind the cottage, watch hikers make their way up the rugged Mount Marathon trail. Cottage guests will enjoy lovely views, a fully-equipped, updated kitchen, and two cozy bedrooms with restored original hardwood floors. The master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed and walk-in closet. The second bedroom has a bunk bed with a full sized lower bed and a twin on top. There is a pull-out sleeper in the living area to accommodate extra guests. A dining table seating six provides a great place to enjoy meals with a view.

About Christina

Alaska has been our home for 15 years. We enjoy the mountains, the water and small town life which is why we love Seward.

Why Christina chose Kenai Peninsula

The Sea Star Cottage is one of Seward's original homes, built in 1920 and renovated in 2012. Seward is a place where the mountains, the water and history all come together. Sea Star allows us to share the beauty of Seward with all who visit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much. Y’all really make this house feel like an Alaskan home. Everything is kept so nice and tidy! I just love the beach theme too!! It is easy to see that you two put a lot of effort to make this house as comfortable as possible. I will definitely recommend this house to anyone I know! Thank you again.

The Sea Star Cottage is super clean and very well equipped for families with children!

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Star Cottage is beautifully decorated and is peaceful. The location in Seward is excellent for walking to park, skate park, Sea Life Center and walking trail along ocean. My family and I really enjoyed our stay and the owners were very professional and responsive. I would stay at the Sea Star Cottage again and plan to.

Great spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable and in a great location. It is well stocked and very comfortable. My boys loved the buoy swing, too! Kid friendly, but not stocked for kids (no pack and play or high chair, but more than enough room if you bring your own). Owner was quick to respond, too. I'd recommend it.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here so much! The cottage is adorable, clean, convenient and so well set up for travelers. I've gone to Seward a few different times and this place was by far my favorite. Walking around the quiet side of downtown is easily done from the cottage which makes all the difference and being across the street from Resurrect Art & Coffee House is a total game-changer. Quiet mornings in the coffee house, relaxing evenings at the cottage after going out an exploring... couldn't ask for a better trip!

Loved this Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay... walking distance from shops and restaurants and the water. Very comfortable and well appointed. The mattress issues mentioned below have clearly been resolved as we slept well. Appreciate that even though 2bd/1ba sounds small, the common areas felt spacious and there is privacy between bedrooms and with the bathroom. Will be returning to this spot and recommending to all my Homer friends.

Charming cottage; lots of amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sea Star Cottage. The cottage is cute, cozy, very clean, and just as pictured on VRBO. It is small, but the open layout and ample seating ensured that it was comfortable for our party of 5 adults and one toddler. My husband and I slept on the bottom bunk in the second bedroom. The bed was comfortable and there was more than enough room for our daughter's pack n' play at the end of the bed. The other bedroom and sleeper sofa were both comfortable as well, according to my parents and brother. The house is well-appointed with books, kitchen items, toiletries, etc. We cooked two out of the three nights we spent there and found just about everything we needed. We used the grill, oven, and stove, and all worked well (though we did have an issue with one of the non-stick pans). We were pleasantly surprised by the food that had been left by the owners and previous guests, including many condiments. The bathroom included ample towels and so many extra toiletries! I'd forgotten to bring my daughter's shampoo/body wash, but found tear-free shampoo and body wash in the cabinet. The house is in the perfect location. We went to the coffee shop across the street every day and walked to the waterfront and downtown shops and restaurants during our stay. The Mount Marathon trailhead is only a few blocks away, as is Two Lakes Park. We had two cars and were able to park both easily in the alley behind the house. Both the front and back doors use keypad entry, which I found to be very convenient with 5 people coming and going. I also really liked that the check out procedures were not onerous. Overall, we really enjoyed our time at the cottage and would definitely stay there again!

Comfortable, clean and walking distance to downtown restaurants, shops, etc.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the cottage. Parking is best in the alley and not as attractive, but very clean, comfortable and close to everything in Seward.
